As soon as I was able to use it to explain my weirdness, I wanted the rest of my family to type themselves, including my husband. Of course these are generalizations, something personality theory as a whole is subject to. I think it was this that got my attention when I met my husband: I had never met someone so much like me, but with more confidence. He was in a previous relationship with someone who enjoyed socializing regularly, and he describes this as a source of constant struggle between them. He wanted to stay home most of the time, so she accused him of being boring.
Experts say that both ENFPs and INFJs are highly intuitive individuals and that even though they have some fundamental differences, they both have pieces that each desires. This creates a great balance between the two partners. So when they disagree on something, the efforts to come to a solution will rarely turn into a fight. The ESFJs can get extremely pessimistic and discouraged under certain circumstances. As such, the ENFPs prove to be very understanding and supportive of them.
ENFJs are profoundly perceptive and love to discuss meaningful topics.
Hi I am an INTJ and it’s weird because I just found out one of my good guy friends is an ENFP! Thinking back to when we first met, it makes total sense about the compatibility between the two types because I was just in class being the introverted person I am and this dude just comes up and sits next to me and I’m like on he asks for my number and I’m asking myself should.
INTJs are supposed to be the rarest of the types. Extremely intelligent and dryly funny, INTJs are probably the type I most admire for their intellectual capacity and ability to analyse just about anything. Rather, they do have feelings, but keep them in check with Te extraverted Thinking when attempting to understand them. It is also for this reason that many believe they are never wrong, which can come across as arrogant and insensitive to others.
On the contrary, they are often very compassionate individuals who care about the genuine suffering of others. Before I was aware of the fact that he was an INTJ, I used to wonder why he would talk to me so much, yet lack an emotional reaction to my misfortunes. After knowing him for a longer time, I realised that the lack of emotional reaction did not mean he could not empathise or sympathise. It simply meant that instead of having an emotional reaction, he would attempt to help me resolve my problems in a practical, effective way.
He also made the effort to dress up on those occasions as opposed to donning casual clothes during our primary school group outings yes, we were from the same primary school. When we go out, we usually talk for hours on end about all kinds of things, from philosophy to family to movies. Our talks usually last about hours during and after lunch. One time we were talking about relationships, and Y mentioned he was a little down that he had never had a relationship before in all 20 years of his life.
I consoled him a little and said that it would happen with the right person at the right time, and asked if he had anyone in mind at the moment.
The INTJ Explained
According to the Myers-Briggs profile, the INTJ personality is comprised of introverted, intuitive, thinking, and judging traits. A relationship with this quiet but self-sure individual can be very enlightening to the participants as a couple as well as on an individual level. Even if an INTJ relationship does not work out, both individuals usually walk away having benefited from the experience.
This individual gathers information and then processes the data in a manner that is more abstract than fact-based.
ENTJ: Very low chance they’re wrong. Questions to show you your faults. Cares but definitely doesn’t always show. Stay off their bad side.
Anonymous asked what are your thoughts on the estp and the infp? Well do you mean like the estp x infp relationship dynamic or do you want me to share my thoughts on both individual types? What I mean to say is that they are pretty epic. I could go on for days about this type, I think they are seriously so underrated. And that I want to protect them from this cruel chaotic world? Also from my experience they can be compulsive liars and have terrible wrathful tempers.
However no one can come near to their unique inner world, their imagination, their insight into others and their open mindedness. They will genuinely listen to you and empathize with you. The INFP is the most easy of all personalities to spot imo. Idk though we are too closely aligned to make any significant change in each other. INFPs are seriously fucking great and they need more love. I mean you should never judge the potential of a relationship based on MBTI types, however the INFP is the most sensitive and open minded of all personality types where as the ESTP is one of the least sensitive and headstrong personality types.
Idk though once again I need to actually meet an ESTP in my life before i confirm any of this, this is all mere speculation. Communication would be very difficult to achieve especially since both types are known for their ability to see inside people and to see their true intentions.
Caring for your ENFP
September 25, The good, the bad, and the ugly. The 2 percent of the population with this personality type are known for their “relentless intellectualism and chess-like maneuvering. So, what does this mean for the people around us?
I’m a female INTJ trying to function in a world spinning out of my control.
Advice for an INTJ with social anxiety? Social anxiety is a product of focusing entirely on oneself in a group, and becoming self-conscious, where after a point all you want to do is leave. Fear of feeling this way can cause socially anxious people to avoid social situations — which is a common trait of disorders, in that the very thing that would help cure the problem is often what the mind least wants to do.
If you want to cure social anxiety, you need to force yourself to be social, to not avoid social situations, and to find someone in a group to focus on and talk to, which will pull your focus from yourself and the negative inner spiral in your mind and force your mind outward. Jordan Peterson gives a good talk here.
Now, she gives public speeches in front of hundreds of people. How did she overcome her social anxiety? She started interacting with people, stepping outside her comfort zone a little bit at a time, learned to place her focus on the external world instead of on herself. This is either a liberating truth or a hard one, depending on how you want to take it: No one is judging you.
No one is thinking about you. Most people feel some social anxiety. How you cope is to recognize that anxiety is an irrational emotional response.
I know I was supposed to write something this week about the INTJ mystique, but I had a weird week that threw my mystique off. Maybe I’ll save it for next week, but I think I may have just given myself a great book idea instead. This post was inspired by our country’s current turbulent political atmosphere and this image I found on Pinterest: As you can tell from the image, INTJ’s tend to align themselves with either Republicans or independently.
But I do believe the INFJ-INTJ relationship is often overlooked due to fear of too much introversion or an emotional mismatch. Of course these are generalizations, something personality theory as a whole is subject to. I’ve also read that the intuitive bond between an INFJ and INTJ is nearly instantaneous, something I can certainly attest to.
March 22, at I found an interest in the Myers-Briggs theory, and then developed my own theory which I now teach for a former psychologist professor after he teaches the MBTI. So I am a computer programmer, psychologist, Theorist. Cara March 31, at 1: Landrus January 10, at 2: After reading your scenario, I have to agree with most all of it! I type 7, he is type 2! B Where did you take your test? Online or in an office?
ENFP/INFJ Party Train
Especially when they are asked what they believe, they are never sure, only with feelings. They are masters at that. They seem so comfortable expressing themselves while writing while we cannot think about how to express an emotion properly and without getting mad in the end.
As you can tell from the image, INTJ’s tend to align themselves with either Republicans or independently. To be honest, I’m shocked there are any INTJ’s out there who affiliate themselves with the Democratic party, but I can think of a couple of reasons why.
As I have mentioned before in posts, personality is ONE aspect of being human and your individual make up. Environment, upbringing, birth, health, trauma, life experience, mental or cognitive differences, genetics, beliefs, gender preferences, country of origin Take a free test HERE: The key is to answer as you ARE and not as you would want to be like. It is more of a descriptor of what you value and how you work out of the world in regards to communication and relationships.
Over the years, I have discovered how important it is for self understanding. Since my personality type is complex and rare, I have also learned how important it is to explain myself, to the best of my ability, to the people who need to understand me the most. This means my husband, children and best friend. But my world is also magnified and brought to beauty by other fellow kindreds of all types of personalities.
It’s not often that I find my tribe.
