    Default What's your "kindred spirit foursome"?

    A "kindred spirit foursome" is a group formed by two letters in your type. Keirsey made an attempt at grouping foursomes through his SJ/SP/NT/NF carve-up, but Myers thought any given letter combination could provide meaningful things about one's personality; not just those which corresponded to her eight functions.

    Which two letters best predict a good connection between you and those who share those same preferences?

    The INs are my pick for kindred spirits. ENTP would be my best fit type that's not an IN.

    Interesting thread.



    I've a difficult time choosing between NP and FP... I tend to get on great with INFPs, ENFPs, INTPs, and some ENTPs in a way that's extremely comfortable, but the ISFPs and ESFPs are also extremely comfortable - I just haven't known as many where I'm aware of their type. With NP, the other would be ESFP. With FP, the other would be INTP.

    NTs and NJs.

    I'm in total alignment with most NTJs, especially INTJs. The ability to sort through ideas and concerns in absolute objectivity regardless of our personal beliefs is highly important.

    NTPs. Healthy NTPs make fun of everything in a playful way to challenge pre-established constructs without the intention to really follow through, merely for the intellectualisation of those concepts. I find that to be fascinating and useful in many ways.

    ENFJs, not really my cup of tea. Except the ENFJ who works for me, I have met few Fe-doms I can bare talking to more than 5 minutes. I'm pretty confident there are people like the ENFJ I mentioned out there, but they are rare in my personal experience.
    Healthy INFJs can be interesting and deep.


    If I had to date from this selection, I'll definitely pick an INTJ.

    My answer has long been the INs, and the recycled reckful in the spoiler explains why.

    My two would be INxx first, then xNxJ second.

    ISTP, ENFP, ENTJ, INFP.

    Not much commonality but those are the types I tend to get along best with.

    xxTP & xNTx mostly, with a select few bonus NF’s here & there.

    It would have to be the NFs.

    There tend to be communication difficulties with INTP,
    I don't think I have any particular ties to ENTJ or ISFP or ESFJ,
    Casual ISxJs are ok, but Si is my bane.

    Other types I tend to connect with would be INTJ and ESFP.

    --

    Other groups of 4 that might work...

    - the N-doms (INFJ, INTJ, ENFP, ENTP)
    - the Beta quadra (INFJ, ENFJ, ISTP, ESTP)

    STPs aren't types that I tend to be comfortable with, but there are certain similarities between us that might make them count as "kindred".

    I prefer grouping for identification as follows:
    NF
    NT
    SF
    ST

    I'm most drawn to people who use Fi or Ne, but I'm also highly fond of NTs. I've liked people of all types because I'm not an asshole. I mean ... I am, but it's possible to dig an ESTJ, at least in controlled quantities.

    What kind of communication difficulties, exactly?

    By "people who use Fi or Ne", do you mean FPs and NPs, or do you refer to those functions in terms not directly tied to type?
