Wondering if ISTJ relationships with INFJ, ENFP, or ENFJ work?
You'll get answers to all your questions in this Buzzle post.
Overbo suggests using type "as a way to really engage them further. Instead, my mind got ahead of me, and I convinced myself we weren't compatible.
Say, 'Great, let's talk a little bit more about that. As an ISTJ, he was logical and detail driven; as an ENFJ, I was feeling and big picture-oriented.
But even though it may seem attractive and comfortable, being with your same type can create problems too, Overbo warned.
"Often what can happen in those relationships is one person ends up dominating in [each preference], and the other person has to flex outside of theirs," she explained.
So I'd search for that, and the further someone's type was from it, the less seriously I'd take them as a love interest. But Jennifer Overbo, the director of MBTI product strategy, told me that my particular interpretation of how to use MBTI—searching for an INFP to date—was misguided.
"The better way to think about it is there's potential in every relationship.
The INFP was specifically called out as a strong match.I really need to get energized before I'm ready to engage in that kind of discourse.'" "A lot of times that can cause some issues" because S-types are more detailed-oriented and N-types are more big-picture.An example: While cooking, an S-type "is going to be measuring out and be really more focused on exactly what's supposed to happen" while the N-type may be like "'We're just gonna throw this in, we're gonna try this new ingredient.' It can cause a lot of humor and fun, but in more serious topics or areas of your life, it can cause some frustration." T-types "decide based on logic and more impersonal analysis" while F-types "make decisions more on human values," which can at times be hard to reconcile.We have discussed everything here, right from how ISTJs are in relationships, to tips on dating them.You are really excited about that blind date your friend fixed you with; you meet him/her, and... Although it's the first time you are meeting, you feel as if you have known each other like forever.
