    Default INTP/ISFP

    I wonder what the INTP/ISFP relationship would be like

    I think an ISFP might like me

    We have only really engaged at social events... do ISFPs ever get into a more serious sorta state 1 on 1 or do they expect the "sillyness" to continue?

    Or maybe it would be a good balence...

    ISFPs rock. truly.

    There's a communication problem and there may be an interest mismatch but otherwise, I find their company very enjoyable.
    The sillyness never ends from what I can tell . 1 on 1 it just heightens because as introverts you're both more energized.
    Don't get too deep and Ti on them though, you'll probably bore them.

    I think ISFPs and INTPs tend to think highly of each other. I feel very revered by the ISFPs I know. Their capacity for kindess always impresses me. They love irrevertent smartasses. In a relationship you'll probably have trouble with planning things. You'll probably hurt their feelings on more than one occasion too. But they're affectionate in a way that won't scare you off, like Fe doms may.
    They're great fun and are one of my favourite types.

    Good assessment.

    Yes, ISFPs tend to be my "cohorts in crime" but can laugh at my over-analysis of any situation. They'd rather just have me chill and enjoy it.

    And yes, ISFPs get very serious about the things they value in life, sure.
    But they approach it differently, typically, than having to sit and analyze it the same way we do.

To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    This! As for the ISFP that I dated, we were better as friends. When I'm in a relationship, I still have my crazy, funny side but there are times where things need to be discussed seriously - issues need to be hashed out. I found this to be nearly impossible with my ISFP. Anything "serious" made her nervous, uncomfortable, and fidgety. She would even sweat. She wanted to make everything funny, everything silly. She had a joke for everything. Which was great because there were a lot of laughs between us. Very kind, very silly, always up for a good time. The above post by edge is very accurate, in my experience.
    NTJ's are the only types that have ever made me feel emo.
    ENP's are the only types that have ever made me feel like a sensor.

    Haha thats exactly it

    They seem good at what I'm not without being really in your face about it

    I've found so far that they aren't so easy to offend as an NF, they don't look too deeply into what I say and seem to have fun with it and usually a lot of the time I'm just joking around anyway

    Rather than taking my over-analysis seriously they laugh at how ridiclous I'm being... which I can be

    IDK I just seem to always offend NFs despite a lot of NTs saying thats the ultimate match...

    That said, I haven't found them incapable of being serious when the situation really calls for it. I take the humor as putting things in proper perspective. Better to laugh at life's ridiculousness than blow a gasket about it.

    For myself, it really depends on the circumstance. I think I maintain the silliness, but I know when it's time to calm down and be serious. I'd have to say that I'm pretty good at knowing when to add a bit of silliness into the thick seriousness to lighten it up a bit, but only when it calls for it. There's nothing worse than trying to lighten up a place that doesn't want to be lightened.

    Yup, that's pretty much it.
