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 INFJ prefers introversion to extraversion. The INFJ is energized by alone time and will use it to help sort out their thoughts. The INFJ seeks to understand patterns and underlying meanings behind what people say and do.
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.
Intuition and Intuition
Two intuitives will get along well. They both see the world in abstract and possibilities, which can lead to engaging conversation. However, they may have trouble following through with day to day chores and responsibilities.
The INFJ prefers intuition to sensing (Through Introverted Intuition). The INFJ wants to understand the underlying meanings and connections between things. The INFJ can form a gut feeling or intuition about the way things are going to play out.
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.
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 INFJ prefers feeling to thinking (Using Extraverted Feeling). The INFJ lives in the emotional and feeling world. The INFJ is in touch with others emotions and knows how to respond to them to put others at ease.
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
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 INFJ prefers judging to perceiving. The INFJ prefers structure, routine, and planning things out versus being spontaneous. The INFJ wants to bring structure, order, and harmony to their environment.
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.
