Introversion and Introversion
Two introverts will get along well and both will give each other enough space to “recharge.” Too much introversion can lead to lack of new experiences and possible social isolation, however.

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 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 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.

Judging and Judging
