    Default What do ENTPs think about INFJs?

    I know INFJs and ENTPs are said to be compatible, and I wonder if part of the reason for that is because ENTPs want to understand the complexities of INFJs and they find their (the INFJs) convoluted minds interesting, rather than confusing and strange. I never feel like I can open up to people because they usually just tell me I'm weird when I do (which they aren't wrong about, but still it would be nice to be understood every once in a while). I know ENTPs love to figure out complex things (and people?) so it makes me wonder if an ENTP would understand me, since they might actually take the time to listen to my psychological analysis of myself and have the depth and intelligence to understand it.

    P.S. When I say I'm complex I don't mean brilliant or genius; I'm just complicated. My mind is like a labyrinth. I don't even always make sense to myself, which is why I constantly psychoanalyze myself to try and figure things out.

    Haha, I'll take the silence as a "No, we wouldn't understand you."

    I won't speak for ENTP's specifically. But, if we're painting with broad strokes, I'd say that xNTP's are generally going to appreciate and be very intrigued by INFJ complexity and personality. You guys are cool and interesting individuals.
    NTJ's are the only types that have ever made me feel emo.
    ENP's are the only types that have ever made me feel like a sensor.

    Complexity of INFJs is my favourite part of those I know, they can talk and say a lot without actually giving much away, the focus tends to be on other people and their needs meaning the topic of conversation isn't often about what makes them tick. Many people can know and adore the INFJ in their life but I expect few are let into their inner world. Leads to a nice challenge.

    Friendships with INFJs tend to be the most equal relationships I have, we both focus on what makes the other tick with genuine interest meaning the focus/attention must be shared and reciprocal.

    My longest relationship (4 years) was with an INFJ guy and I think that says a lot right there. We were insanely compatible in a lot of ways, but we were both young and I really think that was our major downfall. I think if I were to date another INFJ man now in my life things might be very different.

    Anyway, it was definitely the most challenging, but fulfilling relationship I've been in (not that I have a huge track record). I was attracted to his complex mind and that we were two very bizarre individuals that had somehow found sanctuary in each other's weirdness. He appreciated how crazy and detached I can be and I appreciated how thoughtful and kind he could be. I felt like he really understood me and it wasn't in some cheesy, chick-flick kind of way. I really loved him.

    And that's not something I feel or say very easily with that much sincerity.

    It's a nice leverage point with which to analyse my future relationships (whether it's with another INFJ or not). It certainly wasn't perfect (and obviously it didn't work out in the end), but I would definitely not take it for granted if I got something like it again.

    So you are saying that you can withstand our flaws as well?

    Yeah, its weird (wierd? Never get that right) uhm, any Infj or intj, or intp, or, whatever, its pretty stellar. Infj's always seem like, Ive only known one, but, we felt comfortable talking about...careers to how we both hate lotion because its drippy and crap (then I went on and made him some wax lotion for him to use, he probably thought it was gross now that I think about it. It wasnt f-ing drippy though.) and, you know. We are still best buds. You guys are just awesome, except when you go to your caves, I know about your frickin cave. Whenever you get stressed you just hide, its horrible, then I have to get angry and stuff. Like, yall almost seem neurotic, but then you realize when yalls eyes start bulging like youre about to just...spontaneously combust
    brain everywhere, that youre just Real Smart. And I should justattempt to shut up and Listen. And eat nachos.

    Frankly I think I do considerably better dealing with INFJ flaws then INFJs do with my ENTP ones

    The area of grating seems to be my play first work later attitude to everything in life.
