I think if the Extravert knows how to listen and the Introvert knows how to speak, everything would be just fine. I like shutting up for awhile; it helps me to show people I care about more than just myself.

See? These people know their stuff. Now we can quit the "scum of the universe" rumors.

Nah, he is still convinced he's an online seducer. I even bought him a mirror!

I'm attracted to all types that have people interesting enough for my attraction. MBTI is about as much of a relationship/friendship guideline to me as astrology or numerology. Having said that, I must say that I like almost all ENFP's I've ever met.
Too bad they're too busy enjoying themselves to let you join in.
You know what I just thought off. In percentages my I and T always score fairly low. My N and P characteristics are definitely stronger. I always feel a better to other people who have at least one of those dichotomies.
Though even that is not a requirement, cause one of my best friends is ESTJ.
the score for ISFJ suprises me. i much prefer ISFP. if there's one type i can say im definatley, mutually attracted to (due a very large sample size) is the ISFP.

i totally know what you mean. i would've said ISFJs hand me the reigns even before i read this. i dont mind taking care of them (i can even enjoy it) but there's no understanding. i have some ISFJ friends i enjoy but there's still this ever present, slow suffocation. some isfj's i can't stand at all. they'd be down the bottom on my list. if i had to have an SF, give me an ISFP cutie.
my first bf was isfp. i had the biggest crush on him.
what type are you with now?

im the same. although unlike the ENFJ, i never found the INFP particularly attractive on paper, i tend to gravitiate towards FP men. parlty because everyone else stupidly looks over them, because they're easy to talk to and they're sensitive, deep and know what's its like to be someone who society generally doesn't accept/understand. whenever i find them i cant help but think this is someone who isn't getting the credit they deserve.

Don't get me wrong, I have much love for ENFP's in general. But I never felt much attraction to them 'as a type'. And it takes getting to know one to develop interests. Whereas ENFJ's and their natural vibe are just attractive from the get go.
but you said you wouldn't be in a relationship with an ENFJ, so if you could pick the type of your partner what would it be?
i voted enfj. sure it can be hard in the begining but once the secondary functions come out it makes freaky sense. the strangest interpersonal experiences ive had have been with one enfj. catching each others eye from across crowds, compulsively watching each other, mind games, spontaneous stare-offs, high voltage tension when we were near each other, you name it.
i was pursued by the one male enfj i knew who with which such a relationship was appropriate. in the begining it looked at lot like this, lol:
well, not really. minus the love hearts (at least in the begining). he wouldn't stop proding me with questions >_<. when he discovered my talents at Ne sass he just become more interested and more driven. it was difficult to be around him until we got to know each other. i think i seriously did some mind F---s on him (i love having Ne). then shot him down because he jumped the gun (out of jealousy, i think, due to an infp guy i was taking too rather quickly). if im going to be with someone i need them to have a lot of patience. i didn't think it was too hurtful at the time but the enfj stopped talking to me for a while and got sulky. i feel bad, he was a top guy and if we'd had a bigger time frame and i had time to mature a bit, something would've happened. we don't talk anymore because he changed majors so i dont see him around. i probably need a few more years under my belt before i'll tackle let myself get tackled by another enfj romance wise (my enfj friends are awesome, fyi).
i think the highest combatilibilty for intps are NTPs and NFJs.
i thought infj would've scored much higher. perhaps its because a lot of the scores are being determined by experiences and infjs are so rare.
solitude is another fine option.
