    I'm pretty sure that INFJ's and ENFP's are supposed to be the ideal types for each other. That's what I hear a lot. It seems like ENFP's (along with other INFJ's like me) just sort of gravitate towards me. A lot of ENFP's I see seem to love INFJ's, and vice versa. There just seems to be something special between these two types, and I hear a lot of good stories about the two being together. Whenever I see an ENFP, something... goes off in my head.

    I love ENTPs. Love 'em. They are crazy and have a bombastic, nutty sense of humor like I do. They come up with the craziest ideas that makes you want to go and and all at the same time!

    I have a couple of students who I'm sure are ENTPs. One definitely is because he's also interested in MBTI. He's a BLAST!!!! (Therefore, the nitroglycerin - hehehe)

    Regarding a partner - hmm, not sure if it would be a great match or not. I had never come across an ENTP in terms of a romantic relationship and I am perfectly happy with my husband, so it is not an issue anymore.

    You want to date an ENTP? I can't see why not?! Start off as friends because as friends they are definitely cool beans, and if it develops into something more, Schweeeeet!

    Beware... ENTPs generally have a lot of expectations... they have to get a lot of out a relationship in order to compromise...

    Ideal types are fine to discuss in theory but once you're met someone don't obsess over their type, rather use the knowledge of MBTI to develop your relationship and connection. obviously INTJs are where it's at though :rolli:

    here's the thing, many people are gonna theorize relationships with MBTI the problem is that the thery could be twisted wither way, and different experts contradict each other. as much as i am an N (my N score's off the charts with my step II test), i think this situation calls for some proper stats and research. here's a good piece on just that:

    PersonalityDesk - Resources - Compatibility and Your Myers-Briggs

    as ENFP's, we have an advantage in our people skills. NF's typically have a great sense of morality and working towards a relationship. there are some types that i find hard to bond with though. J's are often militant so i have a tough time bonding with them as a P unless they have an F to go along with it. i can get along with S's well enough, though i don't think i could ever date an 'S extremist' especially if they have a T function to go with it (they could continually ridicule me being abstract just because it's 'true'). ESTJ's would be a complete nightmare for me. i'm thinking that ISTJ's could hook me in with their initial shyness but destroy me eventually ;/ . ISTJ's do have a very fun side to them as well though, they just put duty first. that could mean a 9:1 split between restrictive ISTJ and fun ISTJ, and that's no good for me either.

    ENFP-INTP. I don't get it either but it seems like a 'natural' pairing from my RL experience. Peanut Butter and Organic Pomegranate Jelly.

    INFX-ENFP. Didn't expect it, but yes, also easy chemistry!

    Just like to add it seems that for a majority, N's do well with N's, and S's do well with S's.

    Trying to find the perfect type is theory, and sometimes is hard to find good statistical data on (i.e. INTJ's with us being 1% of the population). Relationships take work but N+N and sometimes other opposite traits can make things easier.

    That is why I like Kiersey, he makes it simple, but actually has indepth reasons afterwards. If you are interested in relationship theory...

    Just don't rely on it as there are 1000000 other factors beyond "perfect" personalities that come into play.
