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 ENFP prefers extraversion to introversion. The ENFP gets energized by people and possibilities. The ENFP sees the world as “what could be” and wants to explore and change the world in some shape or form.
The ISFP prefers introversion to extraversion. The ISFP gets energized and recharged being alone. The ISFP uses this time to better understand themselves and their place in the world.
Sensing and Intuition
A sensor and an intuitive will face some challenges in conversation. The Sensor lives in the concrete world of facts and senses, while the intuitive tends to wonder more about possibilities and what is not immediately recognizable. 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.
The ENFP type prefers intuition to sensing (Using Extraverted Intuition). The ENFP tends to see the world abstractly in potential possibilities and what “could be” in contrast to concrete facts, places, and things.

Feeling and Feeling

The ENFP prefers feeling to thinking (Using Introverted Feeling). The ENFP has a rich inner world of morals, feelings, and ideals that it seeks to better understand. The ENFP tends to use this inner guidance as a force to help shape the future world.

Perceiving and Perceiving
Two perceivers are likely to want to go with the flow with things. They may leave things open to the last moment and just take things as they come. This can lead to procrastination and lack of initiative to actually hang out. However, these relationships are typically low pressure and tend to have lower conflict levels.
The ENFP prefers the Perceiving preference to Judging. The ENFP prefers to leave time for decisions instead of coming to an immediate conclusion. The ENFP prefers new experiences and flexible possibilities to predictable moments.
