    Default Incompatibility of Myers Briggs Types

    Do you think some types are incompatible with each other?

    See Link Here

    I remember a few years back on PersonalityNation (when it still existed) someone had posted a few journal publications that studied exactly this. I wish I could find it, but I can't seem to. Either way it compared the ease of conversation, number of words said, and overall feeling each pair had (each type combination was set), and there was a pattern between which types matched best with others.

    That said, I am not entirely sure I agree with the pairings the article you linked proposed. It makes sense on paper, but I wonder if it works well in practice. That and not everyone is going always fit in with it enough. With me anyway, the two main types I get irritated by the most do not fit these patterns.
    It is our duty to create meaning.

    If only it were that simple.

    INTJ - ESFJ

    possibly ESTP - INFP

    (Just realized that these two pairs are conflicters in Socionics, interesting)

    Chart-the-Course least compatible with Get-thing-Going
    / in other words: INFJ, ISTJ, INTJ, ISTP least compatible with ENFP, ESFJ, ENTP, ESFP
    Uh oh

    Well, this whole idea seems akin to opposing Socionics quadras and classical temperaments also being kinda opposed to one another.

    There are also some stats out there relating type-type to relationship satisfaction. Somewhere..

    Socionics compatibility behaves according to fluidity of communication. However, some things are better left not understood in the case that two individuals are compatible but are out for each others' throats. Just something to consider. Point being that sometimes, willingness to work on a relationship > inherent compatibility constraints.

    The article lays out a few theories:

    The Interaction Styles incompatibility theory

    "Chart-the-Course least compatible with Get-thing-Going
    / in other words: INFJ, ISTJ, INTJ, ISTP least compatible with ENFP, ESFJ, ENTP, ESFP

    In-Charge least compatible with Behind-the-Scenes
    / in other words: ENFJ, ENTJ, ESTJ, ESTP least compatible with INFP, INTP, ISFJ, ISFP"

    McAlpine's “Opposing Personality”

    "This model is based on Beebe’s 8 functions theory and it states that incompatibility happens between the types with the same functions but opposite attitudes."

    ENTJ least compatible with: INTP

    ENTP least compatible with: INTJ

    ENFJ least compatible with: INFP

    ENFP least compatible with: INFJ

    ISTJ least compatible with: ESTP

    McAlpine's “Dynamic Opposites”

    "The preferred cognitive process of one type is the least-conscious process of the other, thus creating the opportunity for a lot of tension and misunderstanding."

    ENFP least compatible with: ESTP

    ISTJ least compatible with: INFJ

    ISTP least compatible with: INFP

    ISFJ least compatible with: INTJ

    ISFP least compatible with: INTP

    INTJ least compatible with: ISFJ

    I tend to get along best with other Behind the Scenes people, followed by Get Things Going and worst with In Charge.

    I don't recall ever having problems with ISFPs though. Sometimes with ESFPs. Maybe its just their dominant Se which is so weak of a function for me.

    Overall I have the most trouble with ESTJs. A couple of exceptions though. @EJCC is is an awesome, healthy ESTJ.

    I'm married to an ISFP. Failure to properly communicate is the biggest hurdle. Otherwise, they're quite similar in some ways. Both types crave independence and loathe feeling controlled and manipulated by others. Both types take pride or satisfaction from learning to do things themselves, although the ISFP will be a little more hands-on and is going to want to get right to the task at hand, whereas the INTP might be slightly more cautious or spend more time planning out said task and learning all of the details and concepts related to the task.
    Give me clarity

    Hm... I dunno. I feel like I get along with most types equally -- or at least it depends on the individual. The only reason why the "In Charge" vs. "Behind the Scenes" rivalry rang true for me, was that I always used to drive my INTP dad crazy, growing up. Any time I showed too much of the "In-Charge" thing without, in his view, doing enough preparatory calculation, it would really rub him the wrong way! I wonder if that's why ESTJs bother you, @Such Irony? Too quick to act, without enough deliberation? And/or (another thing that bothered my dad asking for more deliberative input only to not take that advice and go a different direction?
