    Respective adjectives "perfervid" and "ebullient" are a little more appropriate.

    We are pretty amazing, after all--I can easily see any IJ type wanting to pursue us to the ends of the earth.

    That's happened to me a few times, btw.

    Well that explains how I got here.

The other, of course, involves orcs.”

    Okay, I'll bite. Would two INTJs get along well in a long-term romantic relationship?

    Yeah... I could have told you that if you'd asked. But it's against the INT creed to freely offer obvious information.

    Oh. I thought there was only a prohibition against offering useful information. Obviously I've been misinformed.

    I am not an INTJ, though technically qualified to answer the question.

    I'd say yes to that. INTP-INTP would not work because of the lack of F influence in the relationship. Though the rest of the NTs should do well with their own type, especially the INTJ-INTJ as they are the most sensitive of the thinkers due to the influence of their tertiary Fi, as well as that it is being sharpened by Introverted Intuition.

    Generically, yes. Practically? Caveat emptor.

    Still, after one particular romance that detonated on the launch pad, an INTP and I were eventually able to reconcile and resume the friendship. It's as if you lot have a psychological counter-reset.

    Pfft. Everyone is resistable to an INTJ.
