    Lovely.
    Well! Looks like someone's got issues. Thanks for making them obvious to the entire forum.

    Seriously, though, I think I can speak for some introverts as well as extroverts when I tell you that you need to calm down.

    Okay, because both @Zarathustra and @Kaizer both repped me to ask me to elaborate: I was operating under the assumption that the thread was asking "INTPs: which type is the best romantic match for you personally?" So because I can't speak for any INTPs except my dad -- because he's the only INTP I know very well, outside of acquaintance-ship, outside of the forum -- I speak for him by saying that, if you were to ask him who his perfect match was, he'd say my mom, because he's a softy and a romantic with well-developed Fe, and he's been with my mom for over 25 years. If I know him well, and I do, I'd say that if you were to ask him this question, he'd say that my mom is the only woman he'd want to spend the rest of his life with, and the perfect woman for him.

    But since you frequenters of this thread are mostly NTs, you want analysis! So I'll try to analyze and say: The two of them, INTP and INFJ, have very compatible senses of humor -- though his is goofier -- and they are about equally introverted, and they can read each other very well without having to say anything. Neither is terribly communicative in certain ways, but they don't really have to be, because even if one of them is confused, they can draw the other one out and figure them out bit by bit. They're both very low energy, so their lifestyles are equally sedentary and therefore compatible as well. And, last but not least, there's the obvious benefit of combining a T with an F: one is more nurturing and kindness-focused, and can advise the other on those matters, and the other is more grounded and logical, and can bring the other one back to earth when necessary.

    The only downside is that my dad is a 5w6, and because of his 6 wing, he and my mom tend to reinforce each others' conspiracy theories -- and because he's a 5, there's no way to convince him that he isn't being logical.
    Great analysis!

    I voted for my dad as well and decided that although he is remarried, that I shall vote for my mom's type, ENFP, as that was his first choice in life.

    My dad is also a 5, but he might be 5w4 as he thinks conspiracy theories are a load of hogwash. His dad is either 5w6 or 6w5 and ENTJ.... and he is always coming up with bizarre theories of what is "really going on out there."

    Anyways, back to analysis. My parents got along pretty well because of the Ne, but that also was a bit of their pitfall since Ne was the "go to" language for jokes on both sides. (I have experienced this problem with NTPs as well.) I remember my mom saying once that she thought my dad was perfect for her because they each complemented each others weaknesses and strengths. I thought that was a really nice sentiment to have for a spouse. My dad has always been the calm center of reason, but I know that my mom did her part in being the emotional support he needs.

    My dad's current wife is an ISFJ and I think a big chunk of it is that he really needs that emotional support of an F type, and she is all about that. They have a very different dynamic from what my parents had, and I think that is by design on my dad's part. There is a less sense of joking playfulness that was my parents, and a lot more down to earth reality. It's not worse; just different.

    My dad tries to communicate, but he is always botching it up. My mom was always horrified at things he would say in public, although she would turn them into a joke in private since it's not like he is going to change. His current wife is supremely horrified, says so, and is actively trying to change him on that score.

    Another difference is that my mom tended to try and deal with things on her own a lot more than his current wife. I think it's simply an easy example of Fi/Fe differences, and I think it helps my dad a bit to have someone being more open and upfront about problems so he can attempt to fix them. (Which is totally a failing of mine as well.)

    Ok, enough rambling. :P Not trying to hijack the thread at all, but thought my experiences might be helpful for the purpose of this idea.

    Personal experience:
    - INTJ
    - INFP
    - INTP

    I see my ideal type being an extrovert though. I have a weak spot for NFPs. They just make me feel good.

    I was waiting for the day you and I would meet.

    The person who started this thread is a intuitive supremecist because there were none of these romance threads made for ANY of the S types. We should start a riot!

    How you unwittingly continue to illustrate my point...
    Anyone else you'd care to speak for? Not that you're any good at it, mind you. In your quest to further adulterate the thread with your worthless contributions, you've extended your projections to me. Do tell: in what part of my post did you see anything indicative of a lack of calm?
    Perhaps you should try for self-analysis. You certainly couldn't do any worse.

    I'll admit, it annoyed me too. In her defence no one cares enough about who ESTJs want to match up with to start that thread.
