    Default INTP + INTJ + Expensive ring = ???

    Hi NT folks, newbie to the forums here (and relative newbie to typology in general). I got interested into the whole science because of some marital strife, which caused a great deal of introspection.

    So... my wife is an INTJ (possibly ISTJ, but I don't think so). Was wondering if any INTPs were married to/in a long-term relationship with an INTJ, or vise-versa. What's your experience? How do you get along, how do you interact, and on a very basic level, do you interact?

    Thanks, and looking forward to getting a lot of whiny, self-serving questions answered as bluntly as possible!

    Why are you asking about ISTJs if you think your wife is an INTJ? I have been in a long-term relationship with an INTP for > 10 years, so if you have questions about INTP/INTJ, ask away.
    I've been called a criminal, a terrorist, and a threat to the known universe. But everything you were told is a lie. The truth is, they've taken our freedom, our home, and our future. The time has come for all humanity to take a stand...

    What kind of answers are you looking for?
    I like to rock n' roll all night and *part* of every day. I usually have errands... I can only rock from like 1-3.

    Anecdotes from those who have either successful or failed INTP/INTJ relationships, with speculation as to what elements of life were most challenging and what elements of the two types were most complimentary. If you succeeded, what issues did you have to overcome and how did you do it; if you didn't, what was the biggest issue that sunk the relationship.

    As a bit of an MBTI newbie, I'm more than happy to receive links on already-published works about the interplay between the types. I've read a bit, but most of it seems to be forum posts here and at other typology forums, so anything authoritative is quite welcome.

    I think expensive ring is just stand-in for words to the effect of: 'being in a long term romantic relationship". So, he is asking for other people who have been part of that equation to share stories.

    My romantic relationship with an INTJ didn't go well, but that was not because of personality conflicts. We're still great friends and have deep, intellectual conversations. Last time we got together, we discussed the differences between metaphorical and literal interpretations of the Bible, what to do when zombies attack, and our ideal utopian worlds. Also some other stuff I don't remember. In MBTI terms, our primary connection is in sharing NT. I'm not totally sure how a long term romantic relationship would go.
    MBTI: INTP (PNIT if you wanna put it in order of strength.)
    Socionics: INTp
    Enneagram: 5w4
    Alignment: Neutral Good
    Political Stance: (usually) Very Liberal
    Religious Stance: (roughly) Secular Humanist
    Class: Wizard
    Stereotype: Geek/Hippie

    Also, credit for my new avatar goes to this person. I found it on the google.

    I met an INTJ girl a while ago. She was the only girl I've ever really connected with. We went on a lot of dates and talked about every day or every other day. All the dates and every time we talked was unreal. She is my favorite person I've ever met. One day she didn't pick up my call. I tried calling/e-mailing for a while, but never heard from her again. I would love to met another INTJ someday. I guess I really don't have any advice I thought I would just share my story.
