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 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.
The ISTP type prefers introversion to extraversion. The ISTP tends to be inside their heads a lot and will think through things. They have an internal logical framework of the world and they prefer to come to conclusions by themselves.
Sensing and Sensing
Two sensors will get along well. They both live in the real and the concrete. They are good at living in the present, but they may have some troubles foreseeing potential problems down the line.
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.
The ISTP prefers sensing to intuition (Using Extraverted Sensing). The ISTP wants to make sense of the world and uses their five senses of touch, feel, see, taste, and smell to better understand the present moment.
Thinking and Thinking

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 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.
The ISTP prefers the Perceiving preference to Judging. The ISTP prefers to leave time for decisions instead of coming to an immediate conclusion. The ISTP prefers new experiences and flexible possibilities to predictable moments.
