    I think, considering how flexible the mind it, it's a little ridiculous to say that types can't change. It's uncommon certainly, but impossible? As I mentioned before that seems to me like one of those ignorant statements that is later to be found laughable like saying that south america and africa were never once connected or that the earth is flat.

    Like I said before "I know type is not the end all and the be all of compatibility but it does have an impact."

    Actually, it isn't an ignorant statement. That's how the theory works. You temper or moderate preferences as you get older. You become more balanced. However, your type doesn't change. You can create a different theory but it won't be MBTI/Jungian Functions. It's not unusual for someone to have a hard time figuring out what their type is though.

    You're right, it does have an impact. However, I'm with an ISFJ and according to the theory, we shouldn't be a great match. If you look at the functions in order, they are diametrically opposite.

    INTJ is Ni, Te, Fi, Se, Ne, Ti, Fe, Si.
    ISFJ is Si, Fe, Ti, Ne, Se, Fi, Te and then Ni.

    If you look at any conversations on the forums, you'd find a lot of disparaging remarks on INTJ and ISFJ types together - especially from INTJs - but it does work - at least for me.

    That's how the theory works now at least.

    I judge compatibilty off of personal experiences not how our functions match up.
