    Default are INTJs attracted to INFPs?

    What are your experience regarding the dynamic between the INTJs and INFPs?

    All the INFPs I know are lovely. They're all quiet and low-key, and very sweet, but not in an in-your-face way. They're more unobtrusive about it. Plus they offset my grouchy cynicism quite nicely.

    Have you ever had a crush on an INFP?

    I guess my question is are the INTJs crazy about the INFPs? Like falling head over heels in love with them?

    Two of my former roommates, an INTJ and an INFP are dating. I think they just hit their 1 year. Other than both being kind of immature they seem to compliment each other well.

    Romantically I have no idea. The only place I've met them is here. For me they are a very quirky and often quite funny type with a logic that I just can't follow most of the time. They will always say things that seem left field to me, but not to others. They are like the softer complement to an intp which is another type I have a hard time following or understanding. It's my limitation not theirs obviously. But of the two I find the infp a lot more delightful although both express a similar humour and way of thinking. But they can also bite, quite viciously (although I'm not sure that's intentional or not).

    Yes, INTJ's are attractive to INFP's. INTJ's like Ne. It's the same reason why they fall for ENFP's and ENTP's.

    Romantically, I don't really know, but I'd imagine that it'd work quite well as long as one of them wasn't too introverted. From what I've experienced, INFPs can rebound a lot of the harsh criticisms that INTJs offer in positive ways, and I find that INFPs and INTJs have fairly similar senses of humour.

    Yes, if you are not head over hells in love with INFP that means you are not an INTJ, but some other type

    "Head over Hells". Jealous much?

    INFPs are often like catnip to the INTJ: one must beware of the NT-NF death spiral, hidden values-landmines within the INFP, and the tug-of-war between Ne and Ni.
    I know however that many INFPs detest INTJs, either because immature INTJs are the only type who whine while running over someone, or because INTJs keep stepping on the INFPs' fweelings inadvertently. <--- Case in point: I see what I did there.
