    A dual relationship? What does that mean?

    This is from the Personality Page:

    Although two well-developed individuals of any type can enjoy a healthy relationship, the ISTP's natural partner is the ESTJ, or the ENTJ. ISTP's dominant function of Introverted Thinking is best matched with a partner whose personality is dominated by Extraverted Thinking. The ISTP/ESTJ combination is ideal, because both types share the Sensing preference for perceiving the world, but ISTP/ENTJ is also a good combination
    I've been married for 17 years to an ENTJ and I've always been attracted to NTs so it's no surprise that I married one.

    Really? I would have thought that the anti-control aspect of ISTP would be a horrible match for something like ENTJ

    I take all of these 'theories' with a pinch of salt and think relationships between any 'type' can work if they work at it hard enough and marriage is hard work sometimes.

    But the thories I meant (and which you have used in a later post) were from socionics which considers the match a superego relationship which becomes more difficult as people become very close (as in marraige) and from the personality page which has the ideal partner for an istp as estj and the ideal partner for an infp as esfj.

    (btw were you trying to be patronising? if you were - well done you succeded: )

    Personalitypage says the best match for any type will be one that has the same succession of functions, but opposite attitude (TSNF) thus the ESTJ will be best:
    Although two well-developed individuals of any type can enjoy a healthy relationship, the ISTP's natural partner is the ESTJ, or the ENTJ. ISTP's dominant function of Introverted Thinking is best matched with a partner whose personality is dominated by Extraverted Thinking. The ISTP/ESTJ combination is ideal, because both types share the Sensing preference for perceiving the world, but ISTP/ENTJ is also a good combination. How did we arrive at this?
    This theory is somewhat plausible again since the types share a commonality of pattern of succession and the opposite attitude brings out the others inability to extravert/introvert.
    On the otherhand, Lifexplore but more particularly Keirsey takes the opposites attract full blown in saying that dominant Fe types will be more attractive to ISTPs
    The adventuresome artisan may seek out his opposite in the ENFJ "teacher." As noted previously, in the ENFJ he finds a catalyst to growth, certainly a complementary quality to his artisanship. There is nothing, however, in the nature of the ENFJ that is catalytic to the adventurer side of the ISTP's temperament. If this theme is dominant in the ISTP, then the ENFJ-ISTP mating is headed for trouble.

    The ISTP is at least as attracted to the soothing, hosting, giving ESFJ. It takes the ESFJ "master of ceremonies" to get the ISTP off his motorcycle (surfboard, airplane, hang-glider) long enough to relate to others in more productive and facilitative ways. The ISTP needs this anchorage, else he wanders off into the frontier (when Horace Greeley said, "Go west, young man," the ISTP took him seriously and went!).
    I agree less with this theory believing that having to contend with too much of any type's weakness in a relationship can create undue stress. I would be more apt to believe that the reversal of attitudes in this case where both are of the same extravert/extravert or introvert/introvert with differing functions T/F.
