    "EJs find the passive, unstable IP behavior to be a severe hindrance in getting things done, while IPs find the restless and proactive actions of EJ types paranoid and stifling."

    This describes every interaction of mine but not others, here, so you should allow for your own attempt.

I think that’s how we show our feelings, and where our feelings for each other grow.

    As for feelings in terms of affection and affirmation, My INTP is pretty affectionate for an INTP. He likes to be close/intimate and he likes the random kisses and hugs. And also, I have taught him how I want him to show affection and what things I perceive as affectionate, so I honestly don’t experience any lack of feeling in the relationship. My primary “love language” is physical touch and my secondary is “service”. So basically, a stroke in my hair and helping me out with a problem, is enough “feeling” for me. That’s why I’m a fan of the T and T pairing. We’re pretty low maintenance when it comes to these kinds of “feelings” and we don’t need the constant reassuring. I’m pretty unfeeling for a woman, and my bf is pretty feeling for a man – so that’s a pretty even equation.

    There are times when my bf says “I love you” and I instinctively go “Thank you!” and after a few seconds say “oh, and I love you too” – that’s when he starts laughing at me for being such a retard.

    I think that the only time that I have experienced “lack of feeling” to be a problem, is when he is being super Ti, and the same goes for when I am being super Te – that’s when the other person starts feeling neglected. But that’s a pretty unhealthy state for both types, right?

    And also, I'm super protective of my bf. If anybody gives him a hard time, in an unfair and cruel manner – I can’t help but to step in and bite the other persons head off. I don’t know if that’s always appreciated, but there’s a lot of feeling in that behavior.
    ya...i meant to ask whats feeling like and not if you saw it as a problem, but you read right over that and answered exactly what i meant to ask...ENTJs rock


    yeah i like T and T pairing too...i like my partner to be independent and not 'clingy'...feeling through action is the shizzle

    @ ENTJs: Does the INTP's indecisiveness ever annoy you?

    yes. but then again any dallying bugs me a bit. I feel the same way about wasting time over insignificant decisions as anyone else feels about being told what to do. in order to avoid both, some kind of decisiveness is necessary-- I have to be really close to someone to actually use my patience with them.

    "close" includes immediate family, best friend, the cat, and possibly a second or third husband (the first one is just to get frustration out ).

    though if you come up with great conclusions after taking forever to decide, and then do those things efficiently, I will love you forever.

    I prefer only polygyny (multiple wives), Polygamy can be with men or women.

    Hi

    I am an INTP straight female w/ some pretty strong opinions about an INTP-ENTJ match up (generally I LOVE them! although I'd really like to try a relationship w/ an INTJ to compare).

    I find romantic match-ups with ENTJs to be thrilling, exciting, full of energy, and dangerous (explosively so). ENTJs always want to know what I'm thinking (can't ever guess), and I freely tell them when asked - and they usually get a kick out of my answers because whatever I'm thinking is likely smart, logical, and objective (99% of the time). I think ENTJs get annoyed with stupid people, and it's a change of pace for them to know an INTP. Also, the INTP will concede a point easily if you prove it to them, and the ENTJ loves that the INTP will genuinely concede a point (by genuine, I mean we'll concede w/ no strings attached; I think other types resist the ENTJ's logic on principle b/c ENTJ's are often jerks about being right or appear to be jerks about being right - but the INTP doesn't care if you're a jerk as long as you're right; we won't harbor a grudge b/c you were right and we were wrong, as long as you show you're right). But beware, just b/c an INTP concedes point "A" doesn't mean they'll follow you from point A to B to C to whatever conclusion YOU WANT w/out questioning all the logical steps: INTPs will call you out whenever you've failed to prove something to them and they think your conclusion is off.

    ENTJs are controlling but not in a way that bothers me. I know MB says INTPs don't like to be controlled, but because the ENTJ is usually SO OBVIOUS and logical about it, its not problematic (I think INTPs just don't like to be secretly controlled or manipulated or slowly backed into a corner; we HATE being controlled by feelers, but thinkers aren't so bad). Further, the ENTJ is likely to be so opinionated that it takes the drama out of the decision-making process the INTP. The INTP can just say "yes" or "no" to the ENTJ and that's the end of it (of course, it's important in this that the INTP thinks the ENTJ has a brain, but assuming the ENTJ does, the INTP is probably willing to follow the ENTJ overall, even if the INTP questions a few decisions here and there).

    But, there's a major, major pitfall in everything I've said, and I think it's the possibility of stalemate or all-out-war regarding the actual relationship itself. The ENTJ is used to being able to push people around, and you can't push an INTP around WHEN YOU'RE NOT RIGHT. In such a situation, the ENTJ will often take a "my way or the highway" approach. When all else fails, i think ENTJs are used to pushing their agenda whether or not they're right, but, surprise! the INTP will tell you where to shove it if you're aggressive + wrong. The whole time the INTP was w/ you b/c you're smart and logical (your domineering antics never really worked on us even if you thought they did). SO, if you're a jerk w/out being right, watch out. You may have been bluffing, but if you were wrong, can't admit it, and bluff aggression/assertiveness, the INTP will walk (having given you a chance to admit you were wrong, that you didn't take, WE WILL WALK w/out ever looking back - seriously, that's it: finito, finale, end).

    The only other worry is that the E/I mis-match will leave me wondering if you're board with me. I need an "e" that can have outlets outside the relationship for their extroversion w/out physically or mentally cheating on me. I need to trust the ENTJ to get what they can from me, responsibly get other needs met by other people (we're not jealous at all, so it's up to you to be a responsible romantic partner), and NEVER make me feel boring. An INTP can be one of the few people an ENTJ can let their guard down around; You can be alone with your INTP, so appreciate them for that and don't expect them to be loud and crazy w/ you all the time.
