    Any comment on this?

    You like to get pegged, don't you?

    Just like Tater... must be the younger male INFPs... :P

    First, there's three different ways of thinking of "opposites" when it comes to Jungian typology.

    Think of the following as representing a type's function order (1-8):

    15
    26
    37
    48

    You can think of 1234 and 4321 as being opposites (for an INTJ, that would be ESFP).

    You can think of 1234 and 5678 as being opposites (for an INTJ, that would be ENTP); alternately, or, opposites, but with a little twist (with a different form of opposition), would be 1234 and 5328 (instead of having completely different functions for all 4 normal functions [i.e., one type's normal functions are the other type's shadow functions]), this pairing has just the dominant/inferior functions as "opposing functions" (i.e., same function, but opposite attitude), but has the same functions in the auxiliary/tertiary, just in reverse order (which leads to the INTJ-ENFP combination).

    You can also think of 1234 and 8765 as being opposites (this is really the most opposite, and, for an INTJ, would be ISFJ).

    Second, what @Coriolis said about ENTPs applies to me as well. While they can be entertaining for periods of time, and are the MBTI's natural comedians, they are almost unanimously annoying as shit after a while, and I can't really see myself being with one. Their puerile Fe, which results in an excessive and absurd need for external validation, often makes me want to wipe their existence off the face of the planet.
    Ah what? I didn't know there was going to be any math involved in responding to this. Haha! I'm just kidding!!!
    No, I mean...I think all the opposite combinations you listed can fall under the 'opposites attract' heading...and I do think there is something to be said (for some) with regards to the attraction between 1234s & 5678s...especially when those 1234s & 5678s are ENFJs & INFPs. I don't necessarily think this applies only to Intuitive Feelers though...but I do like me some INFJ men-folk. <--- it may make for a 'higher-octane' relationship (idk)...which may be too much for some...but it is romantic and rewarding if you can work through all the *stuff*.

    @Ginkgo
    Comment? Hmm, I don't know what you're hoping for, but I really don't have much perspective to offer here.

    I don't really over-think it, I just seem to get along with ExTJs in the real world, and I like being around them.

    I really have no idea if some kind of gender role thing plays a part. Maybe. I tend to ignore gender roles, for the most part anyways. So maybe that is why I have the opinion that I do on this, going off of the assumption that the quote in your post is the case, of course.

    I voted INFJ. But I could easily go ENFJ or ENFP, though I'm not sure I could keep up with an ENFP.

    I love other N types because I find it easier to connect with them.

    I like Fs but an SFJ type, particularly ESFJ, I would not like at all. They are exhausting to me.

    I also like the balance of Ts for me. I noticed INTPs have a high rating but for some reason they are a big turn off for me (??????) as far as attraction goes. I mean, I like them, they are fun, but I don't find them romantically attractive. Also an ENTJ or ESTJ would be way too harsh for me. If I was going for Ts it would probably be introverted types.

    And I do seem to have a thing for SPs, as far as attraction goes. I think that's what my last BF was.

    Thanks for your thoughts.

    With regards to the INTPs: one is a fake, and another should be under INTJ.

    As such, ENFJ should be the highest, with four votes, and INTP second, with three.

    Interesting, I wasn't expecting INTPs to rank well with INFPs and bad with INFJs.
    I used to think INFPs were too sensitive+subjective+spiritual for my parameters, but nowadays I think it would be a pretty interesting match. And one thing is for sure: INFP is, by far, the cutest mbti type.

    I don't. .-.
    Well, they're nice as friends, but as a romantic partner... It could happen, you never know... But it's just so hard to imagine.

    Ok, well it will be interesting to see where they come when more people vote
