Extraversion and Introversion
An extravert and introvert may have some issues with one wanting the other to open up more, and one wanting the other wanting the other to give them some time alone. However, they can also be good to balance each other out, allowing the extravert to feel more comfortable introspecting, and the introvert has someone to encourage them to socialize and try new things more often.
The ENFJ Prefers extraversion to introversion. The ENFJ gets energized being around people and prefers to talk out their thoughts instead of internalizing them. They are in tune with the feelings and emotions of their environment and seek to understand it.

Sensing and Intuition
A sensor and an intuitive will face some challenges in conversation.

While these two types may struggle, they may also balance each other out by being able to get things done and also foresee future issues.
