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.

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.

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