    Not really. The ILE description looks more like some burnt-out INTP or ENTP, rather than a healthy example of either; and the EIE description looks way too damn histrionic and flaky for ENFJ. ESTp looks more like an ENTJ with a lot of Se (or even an ESFP 8w7) rather than ESTP.

    I hear a lot of TJs suggested... I can only speak for myself, but I've only ever been attracted to an ESTJ. Te is difficult for me to tolerate sometimes (Occasionally brings out my Te, my "opposing" (5th) function), but I usually really respect Te- users. And while I can see an ESTJ + ISTP working, it's not my preference. But that may just be because my relationship with ESTJ didn't end as pleasantly as I would have liked, and it's still fairly recent.

    My best guy friend is an ENTJ, and I frequently want to punch him in the face.

    I have an INTJ brother, too, and I frequently want to punch him in the face as well. My boss is an INTJ, and while we get along well... his personality is a bit too much for me sometimes.

    I get along with ISTJs but the dynamic is boring. I need more differences.

    If I had to guess the best matches for an ISTP, I'd say ENTP, ENFP, or ESTJ. I personally prefer extroverts and perceivers. ESTP is too much alike, and ESFPs may be -too- outgoing for me. I'm currently dating an ENTP, and I love our dynamic.

    I am talking about the introverts when P and J is supposedly supposed to change, not the extroverts.

    I feel this might be an ISxP thing. We're just too dern independent.

    TJ's seem to work. ISTJ, ESTJ and ENFJ are the only ones to get relationship status from me. I understand the ISTJ thing. It gets way too comfortable. I really like J's though. They bring a stability I need in relationships but also it's fun to try to shake theirs up. I enjoy that very much. Other P's we end up feeding off each other and it goes over the deep end. Which is great for friendships but I want someone to pull me back from my own wildness sometimes.

    However, that was a long time ago. As I get older, I see myself more interested in ENFP (I met one that blew me away. I thought I could really fall for someone like him if he was physically attractive ) and ESTJ (It's just so damn easy). I wouldn't rule out a fellow ISTP or ESTP but it's really difficult for the emotional dynamic to not end up with this sort of outcome:

    I really think fellow xSTP relationships can only work if the Enneagram types differ in a compatible way.

    Yeah, blucie, I know a lot of people say they want ____. But you know there's a difference between idly thinking theoretically that someday I might want something and like, wanting something enough to actually building an action plan around wanting it or having it or even actively seeking it. I'd tread carefully before making any move to help "problem-solve".

    I know a lot of single women- it seems society really puts a big emphasis on how much women want a man. I'm not so sure this is true.

    A lot of mentions of TJs! I'm with Steph on this one though. While a little antagonism is fine in friendships, I prefer more... comfortable romantic relationships. *shrug* I don't think I've formed very set dating criteria at any rate, but I probably want an E just because being with *my* introverted self is exhausting enough.

    It's the same as with men. Some are skirt chasers and others aren't. Some can't seem to talk about anything or do anything besides trying to find that perfect someone for them, while others would prefer to do their own thing and have their own interests, and if they bump into someone along the way, then yay! the merrier.

    I think all of you have missed the message.

    She said there were three ISTP women who were single.

    There's enough for everyone
