    Pretty much.
    I find two Ne-intensive INTPs get along just fine, typically, though.

    It does kinda help if both people are open to verbalizing their thoughts, or one person is an initiator and the other a responder. Putting two responders together usually leaves conversation dead until an interesting topic is found.

    Still, it can just be a chemistry thing. You're not going to sync up with everyone who matches your type.

    I like most INTPs, a lot. But I can't imagine there being much of a romantic spark there. Too incestuous.

    Indeed INTPs are self-sufficient, we just need another INTP since we are the best prototype for the future human race

    Seriously (hey but I was serious ! Geez).. INTPs get along very well, don't they ?

    Strange, I'm typically a responder, but when I headed out with an INTP things started at the book store and moved to the coffee shop at the book store. The conversation ended up self sustaining for 3 hours, only being broken by staff bumping into us as they started to close up. Then again, I'm F, not T...

    I'm a Fetard trying to get better at relationshiping, so I'm curious: What types of compatibility issues do you think are important?
    Lack of chemistry is a bullshit phrase people use when they don't want to talk about it. Were you not totally into her because of her looks and she could tell? Was one of you too uptight? Did you not focus on enjoying the conversation and learning more about her? Did she have differing expectations of how you'd be in real life?

    Are you actually not a very good date? I don't know, but it's a skill like any other that you can work on.

    A solid list of strategic date objectives. I am trying to develop that skill. I disagree that lack of chemistry is a bs excuse though, its not as if we'd be in love if I had asked one more question about her. The purpose of those objectives is to get to that flow state where y'all are going back and forth until you get kicked out still wanting more. If you can't cant get there and can't forsee getting there after several hours, a lack of chemistry is a valid conclusion.

    INA, what did I say to make you think I'm a non-intp twit?
