Extraversion and Extraversion
Two extraverts will both get energized by being around people. This can allow them both to go out often together. Too much extraversion between people can lead to a lack of downtime and reflection, however.
The ENTP prefers extraversion to introversion. The ENTP gets energized by people and possibilities. The ENTP sees the world as “what could be” and wants to explore and change the world in some shape or form.
The ESFJ Prefers extraversion to introversion. The ESFJ 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. 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 ENTP type prefers intuition to sensing (Using Extraverted Intuition). The ENTP tends to see the world abstractly in potential possibilities and what “could be” in contrast to concrete facts, places, and things.
The ESFJ prefers sensing to intuition (Using Introverted Sensing). The ESFJ takes in the world in a concrete/matter of fact manner. The ESFJ remembers facts, places, and uses past events to predict future outcomes.
Thinking and Feeling
A thinker and a feeler can make for an interesting dynamic. The thinker can help sort through logical issues, but may be seen as harsh to a feeler. The feeler can help the thinker understand their emotions more, but can be seen as too emotional and flighty to a thinker. However, both of these types can make for a very healthy balance.
The ENTP prefers thinking preference to feeling preference (Using Introverted Thinking). The ENTP prefers to see the world using logic, systems, and ethical fairness. The ENTP wants things to make sense logically, and wants to sort things out.
The ESFJ prefers feeling to thinking (Using Extraverted Feeling). The ESFJ lives in the emotional and feeling world. The ESFJ is in touch with others emotions and knows how to respond to them to put others at ease.
Judging and Perceiving
A judger and a perceiver can surprisingly get along pretty well. The judger prefers to make plans, and the perceiver has little problem with deferring. Problems can arise when the judger becomes to imposing, or when the perceiver’s flexibility of schedules can be seen as an annoyance.
The ENTP prefers the Perceiving preference to Judging. The ENTP prefers to leave time for decisions instead of coming to an immediate conclusion. The ENTP prefers new experiences and flexible possibilities to predictable moments
The ESFJ prefers judging to perceiving. The ESFJ prefers structure, routine, and planning things out versus being spontaneous. The ESFJ wants to bring structure, order, and harmony to their environment.
