    Default Do people have friends who are a similar type?

    Hi
    I've read before that people generally get on better with types similar to them, but I'm not sure that's true of me. I seem to have had a lot of friends who are dominant sensing types....
    What about everyone else?

    I get along best with esfp's which also are dom Se types. I don't meet to many people that are Te dom or even Ni dom. The Ni doms I meet though I get along with as soon as they realize I'm in it for the long haul. I don't need that with an esfp, they are very accepting when I first meet them so they're the easiest for me to get along with because we both show ourselves easily and get to know each other fast.

    My friends are mostly SPs from soccer though there are a few NT and SJ friends though mostly not from soccer and NF is just completely off both lists!

    The most common type of the people I am friends with is probably ESTP which makes sense since that is my favorite type. ESTPs are such adventuresome and fun people and my weak i and n along with strong T and P makes my type quite similar to theirs.

    Most of my friends that I've known for a long time are SJ. I get along fine with them but always felt a bid like they all probably think I'm a weirdo.

    Lately I've met several NP people from some activities that I've done (activities that I have chosen, not ones forced upon me like high school). We seem to "get each other" better and have similar interests and sense of humor. Makes sense that I met them how I did since we had to have at least one similar interest to meet in the first place.

    At work I find I really hit it off with other NPs and I also get along well with SJs. SPs pretty well. NJs I have a lot of trouble understanding at times.

    I think I have friends of all type. Most of them are S of one form or another, but that's just because there seem to be a lot more S around here. They tell me that I make their heads hurt, so I've been trying to behave myself.

    If online descriptions are any indicator, then I'm "supposed" to get along best with other Sensors -- but most of my friends are iNtuitive. The vast majority of my close friends are NFs, then NTs, then one or two SPs. My only close friends with similar types to me are my dad (INTP, with Ne/Si in common), and my ENFP friend from high school (same functions, different order).

    I also generally don't befriend other Enneagram Ones, but I have lots of friends who are 9w1, 2w1, 2w3, or 3w2. Recently I made an ENTJ 8w9 friend, but I'm not all that close with him.

    I have mix of every type. Closest friends/who i prefer to hang with are ESTP (best male friend) ENFP and INFJ (best female friends) and ISFJ (best friend with benefits. Whatever it is. Its effortless and fun).

    Think about it for a second, OP. If you take MBTI out of it for a second, what would you think of someone who surrounded themselves with nothing but...themselves (or the closest they could get?)

    I would think there was something fucking wrong with them.

    Cool, thanks guys.
    My best friend is an ISTJ-not exactly a type mine's associated with-but we actually have loads of stuff in common, like writing stories, although our styles are completley different and it was kind of interesting seeing how they blended when we tried to write a joint story. I've also been best friends with an ESTP and an ESFP before. Usually when I meet intuitive types we get on really well-but we never seem to quite become defined "friends" in the same way and end up drifting apart. Oh well.
    Apart from my immediate family, who are all intuitive types.

    My closest friends are ENTP, INFJ, and INxJ, so not really any trends there. My other friends don't matter that much plus I don't know if I know them well enough to guess their type, but I'm guessing there is a variety.
