It's not an axiom. I can certainly see how more likeness would be attractive (especially when it comes to less rigid MBTI traits like introversion vs extroversion and feeling vs thinking- I can't handle introverts and thinkers tend to infuriate me). But what are the chances you'd know the other persons 4 letters?
I can assess my past relationships and people to whom I am attracted when I know their type. It's getting easier and easier for me to spot types IRL as well.
I've always liked introverts.
I understand getting infuriated by thinkers, though. I've been attracted to NTs but it doesn't seem to work.

I saw this thread a while ago and didn't comment, but I agree that ESFP/ESTP is probably our best match. I love how they can keep the conversation going with Sensorish topics.
It also seemed to me that ISTJ/ENFP would be laden with communication problems. However, I now have found myself in an interesting situation: I've been seeing an ENFP (male) recently. We hit it off physically, but emotionally and conversationally we seem to be lacking. I'm just curious how it will all work out, but I am a bit skeptical. I keep thinking he will figure out how "boring" I am as a Sensor and will lose interest, or his messiness/forgetfulness will drive me up a wall. We will have to wait and see I suppose.
