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 ESTJ Prefers extraversion to introversion. The ESTJ gets energized being around people and prefers to talk out their thoughts instead of internalizing them. They are in tune with the structure and order 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 ESTJ prefers sensing to intuition (Using Introverted Sensing). The ESTJ takes in the world in a concrete/matter of fact manner. The ESTJ remembers facts, places, and uses past events to predict future outcomes.
Thinking and Thinking
Two thinkers can make for a very informative relationship. Two thinkers can really discuss matters and learn new things. They enjoy logically understanding their environment. Problems can arise when both types neglect the emotional aspects, which can lead to bottled up emotion.
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 ESTJ prefers thinking to feeling (Using Extraverted Thinking). The ESTJ wants the world to be logical and orderly. The ISTJ wants conclusive plans of action and concrete understand of the way things works. This universal acceptance of logic is used to help the ESTJ form their worldview.
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 ESTJ prefers judging to perceiving. The ESTJ prefers structure, routine, and planning things out versus being spontaneous. The ESTJ wants to bring structure, order, and organization to their environment.
