    Default INTJ Matches?

    In your opinion, and experience, what is the best match (significant other) for INTJs, and why?

    INFJ, because we balance each other out.

    Ooh, cool thread. Everyone is interested in the love lives of the silent, mysterious INTJs.

    Seriously, I think the success and happiness of a relationship has a whole lot more to do with commitment, respect, affection, and all that good stuff than it does with personality type.

    That said, I like the idea of INTJ/INFJ pairings-- all other things being equal, and so long as they are mature enough to handle Te/Fe differences. There is a lot of common ground-- (introversion, Ni, etc,) but enough difference to keep things interesting and promote personal growth.

    In my highly humble and uninformed opinion.

    I completely agree. I think that is a major reason why INTJ/INFJ would work really well. They both value commitment.

    I don't find INFJs attractive at all. Ni x 2 is too much.

    I'll have to go with Ne users or P types in general. Note that my J is fairly low.

    INTJs, have you had any relationship experiences with INFPs?

    And I also wanted to add, that even if the INTJ, INFJ thing worked out really well... those are two types that are both near 1% of the population...

    Really? Ne makes me nervous, not sure why, I guess it can seem so random and unpredictable. I'm more comforable with other J types.

    Note that I'm talking about relationships. Ne is cute and totally acceptable in friends and acquaintances.

    Does it follow that they'd be less likely to find eachother? I've heard IN's in general are sorta rare, but I know several. I think they gravitate to similar activities and social groups.

    Also, who's to say that statistic is accurate? *shrugs*

    Based on my experiences with INTJ girls.....I'd advised against the whole INFJ/INTJ pair. If it works, I guess things would be fine. If it doesn't(like it did with me), well.......let's just say you have one incredibly shitty mess to clean up.

    Thanks Helen. I'm lazy (writing and expressing), I just know it works for us (INTJ husband and myself).
