If I was at work and had a series of important meetings and really felt that I didn't do well or that my social skills hurt me in the meetings, then I came home feeling really down on myself - feeling very incompetent. Competence is HUGE for me. I have to know that I'm at least capable, but preferably "very good" at what I'm doing. And so, as little boy-ish as it seems, I might have come home looking for some sort of coddling to get rid of that really messed up, hopeless, "I'm an incompetent loser" feeling. The woman you care about can really help in that area.

    But, with age and experience (hopefully), we grow up and learn to give our best and hold our heads high in every situation. And to be a man, not a boy.
    Haha, glad you were able to come to your senses!!

    I totally get that about competency and can see how a young INTP man could easily fall for a warm and supportive lovely ENFP lass. They can be quite emotionally breathtaking*... no one could blame you for wanting that.

    Of course I am only talking about myself, not the dude that lives up the sky.

    I think the relationship can work, but conflicts can happen because the two types are too similar.
    I think ENFP is one of the most compatible types with ENTP. There are several.

    Personally in my experience people who are very similar in type who get along well will have a comfortable relationship, but it may be dull. Basically what you said.

    Haha, mm. This can be very true. I've noticed it with INTP guys I know, and a bit with the one I'm dating. It's also a big enneagram 5 thing...wanting to be competent. I notice it in a INTJ e5 I know, too. And that behavior does commonly ensue...

    Um, but the topic!

    Depends.

    I do notice a lot of couples work with just one letter switched (usually the F/T), and it's certainly true for myself being with a Thinker. The difference is, ENFPs and ENTPs are each quite stubborn. Not that other types aren't, but these two types in particular really are. And they can butt heads.

    ENTPs have a weakness of being too blunt, or being too objective and therefore "unkind" and tactless sometimes. It can really upset people--especially Feelers. An ENFP just doesn't see the need for that line of "hurtful" thinking. See, an ENFP thinks people should rely on their own system of judgment or gut to achieve decisions or beliefs. An ENTP thinks people should explore all options and do what makes the most sense.

    So ENTP is like, "Wow, that's a stupid idea," and the ENFP is like, "Stop being a bitch. You don't know what that other person is feeling." And the ENTP reasons, "Well, but I know what makes sense, and that sure doesn't." And the ENFP says, "How f*cking presumptuous of you."

    I have an ENTP best friend and an ENFP best friend. They've never met, but I know they'd get along. Why? The ENFP knows when to let water roll off his back, and the ENTP knows when to keep her mouth shut. Fact: for an ENFP and an ENTP to get along, they both must learn to curb their own faults.

    The ENTP will have to learn to think about the other person's feelings before saying what comes to mind, and that those feelings--while maybe not always logical--are unavoidable factors of behavior.

    The ENFP will have to learn that not everything is meant to be taken personally, nor is everything an attack, but sometimes just playful philosophizing.

    Basically, EMBRACE YOUR PERCEIVING SKILLZ. And it should be okay.

    Really? My thought process:

    He seems to have a penchant for judging and smiting people with plagues and turning them into pillars of salt and stuff like that. He seems to be an extrovert, considering how much he thrives on attention (aka worship) so ExxJ-

    I think his inferior should be Fi because he seems to be pretty inconsistent with how he feels about things.

    If he's an extroverted judger, his introverted function would probably be intuitive- God seems like quite an Ni guy, don't you think?

    So Te, Ni, Se and Fi inferior- ENTJ!

    This is really insightful for me. As an INTJ in a relationship with an ENFP and an ENTP, your reply helps me understand them a bit better. The part I quoted is so...very...them.

    And that's before I get involved (if I choose to), and it gets even more confusing.

    My ENFP partner: Do what you want. Whatever happens happens. We'll see when we get there.

    Our ENTP girlfriend: Try it and see, if you don't like it, try something else. Experiment.

    Me, INTJ: *craves stability and something real, please?*

    Which god are we talking about here? He doesn't exactly have a consistent personality from source to source.

    I didn't mean to imply that *she* was an ENFP. She was actually ESFP. Young, immature INTP's don't discriminate with who we want to "mother" us.
