    Default ISTP ISFP relationship

    These two types share some similarities (same secondary and tertiary functions, same temperament, assuming you but temperament theory [I don't, really]) and yet the differences seem as clear as night and day.

    Is this a good match or is it inevitably doomed to fail?

    As long as they share common interests, like to do things together, and the sex is good, I see no reason why it wouldn't work.

    What would an ISTP female's take on making love all night be? Do you enjoy kissing and caressing and foreplay, or do you prefer to want to just get it over and done with and have a smoke?

    Meh.

    I feel like it may work well as we're both Se auxes so we'd share a preferred method of interpretation/operation in that respect, yet I also think Fi and Ti may clash a lot.

    I really like Ti users, except when I have a personal concern and it feels that they don't understand what I'm talking about. It's like we speak two different languages at times.

    For me, I find i am drawn to ISFPs very strongly,
    perhaps more than any other type

    I reckon, FI and TI doms communication is like having a staring contest marathon.

    Potential for great sex though.

    My best friend tested as an ISTJ but while she indeed does not handle change well, I think she's an ISTP. We're very similar and have almost the same sense of humor. We're laidback and don't mind just hanging out at the house. She used to be pretty rude with her opinions (even making fun of my appearance) but has grown out of it. (And I'm probably rude sometimes too, but I usually just don't think about it sounding rude because I'm usually kidding.)

    I forgot I started this thread.

    I'd have to say that the biggest problem in my marriage has been that my wife and I enable one another to be irresponsible. For instance, if either is stressed about money, the other one will say 'fuck it, let's go out to eat tonight or take a spontaneous trip to the beach.' Neither of us really enjoys or are good at planning--we can do it, we just have to force ourselves to do it, and more often it's easier to simply let things take their course and wait to jump into action when the shit hits the fan.
