    But INTJ is so wrong for the ESTJ believe me I've tried.

    I am attracted to the mind so NT's would suit me down to the ground. Not quite sure they would feel the same way though.

    I meant the competitiveness and controlling aspects. That's good to hear anyway. Awww.

    I still don't know what would really be optimal for me in a relationship, both in the give and take aspects.

    I like NT very much, too.

    Honestly I used to think I'd never be attracted to an N, but he seems to have well developed Se. Also, he is just mature, and I don't think that is just the rose colored glasses speaking. He can be insensitive at times, but when we communicate about it he's willing to admit his wrongs and try to be more careful in the future. I actually thought he was ISTP for a long time until he tested as ENTJ, and then I read that ENTJ's can look like ISTP's often because of developed cognitive functions.

    Or something. I explain this function stuff like I know what the hell I'm talking about and I really don't.

    But I don't know. Even when you take types into consideration, people are different, and there are other things that cause us to be compatible. I believe life experiences, upbringing, and other factors help to develop traits that work well with other people even if their personality may not be what a type enthusiast would call "ideal." Both of us are very independent, and I think this causes us to be careful to not control one another. Also, for me, manipulation and controlling are against some of my core values and I've seen and been affected by them enough to realize how harmful they are to relationships. These types of things factor in to compatibility, as well. Not that I'm saying our relationship is free of issues here and there, but they have been minor, fixable, and so far I have not noticed controlling behavior as having a place in our relationship.

    You shouldn't of said anything. It seemed you knew what you was talking about there.

    Awww. It is really nice to hear you have this happy medium.
    Obviously everything you have said makes perfect sense. There are so many factors which have to somewhat be in place to help make a relationship work and move forward.

    I am very happy for you.

    No it's ok. I can admit when I'm stupid! Haha. But seriously I only understand a little bit about those functions, so when I start talking about it I'm always thinking in the back of my head that one of the hundreds of more educated people on this board will read what I wrote and think, "She just put two and two together and got five. WTH?"

    In the past I've always been strongly attracted to I-types. Isn't it common for E's and I's to be attracted to each other? Not sure why this has been an exception with me this time but who cares? I can't even analyze why I'm attracted to what I am.

    I usually go for I's as well. I love my E friends (acquaintances) but jeez after a while i need to get away from them, they are louder than me.
    When looking for a suitor (lol) i ideally like more quiet/reflective/need their space kind of people. It's a balance I'm usually happy with.
    Yet as you have pointed out, you are with someone who you shouldn't necessarily be compatible with and still it's all good so far.
    If i am correct though, according to Socionics our opposite is INTJ (someone will point it out if i am incorrect ), so maybe you are such opposites and due to giving each other space, you are able to work together and be happy.
