    But.... yeah.

A lot of us are off in our own worlds a lot of the time + understandably this can frustrate partners.
    I think this is the problem. In a friendship or other casual relationship, I could let it slide. In an intimate relationship - no. But I can certainly see an INTJ or ENTJ really loving it in a partner, if they wanted someone who isn't confrontational and won't challenge them.
    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.

    You're both wrong if you think foolish superstition will stand between an INTJ and his/her goals.

    Try again.

    It was in reading this response that I finally understand the attraction of the INTJ, and in that knowledge I feel so much more ENFP. I need a shower now, not sure if it should be cold or boiling.

    I don't think an immature INFP and immature INTJ could get along so well. And the INFP will definitely develop a thicker skin.

    There may be issues though because INTJs are not particularly affectionate or romantic.
    I'm feeling ornery tonight for personal reasons (OK, I biked 34 miles round trip to work and it was too freaking hot on the way home...)
    so I hope you won't mind if I use you as the target for my personal carpet-bombing campaign...

    Tell me, if you please, how well you think the following series of cartoons fits the INTJ - INFP dynamic (tongue in cheek, that is; I don't really think it does except for the mutual curiosity...)

    Okay, so that might not be it. I guess that INTJs have soft spots for them? The INFPs I know hold the "smart" types (i.e. most NTS) in reverence, so maybe INTJs recognize that and withhold their wrath because they like having the INFPs look up to them. Also, I really do think that just maybe, INFPs can melt INTJs' hearts with their Fi-dom. They're so...personal and deep at the same time. (From what I've seen.)
    INTJs may seem cold, but most of them have a gentle side. INFPs could be one of the types that get to see that side. Even though I'm an INTP, I can see how an INTJ would be reluctant to smash an INFP's hopeful idealism to bits.
    Please note, I'm not at all cute or fluffy or snuggy. That's the INFP cliche.
    On the outside, my INTP female friend and I are very similar. She and I both tend to be quiet, and seem a little cerebral.
