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.
The INFP prefers introversion to extraversion. The INFP gets energized and recharged being alone. The INFP uses this time to better understand themselves and their place in the world.
The INTJ prefers introversion to extraversion. The INTJ is energized by alone time and will use it to help sort out their thoughts. The INTJ seeks to understand patterns and underlying meanings behind what people say and do.
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 INFP type prefers intuition to sensing (Using Extraverted Intuition). The INFP tends to see the world abstractly in potential possibilities and what “could be” in contrast to concrete facts, places, and things.
The INTJ prefers intuition to sensing (Through Introverted Intuition). The INTJ wants to understand the underlying meanings and connections between things. The INTJ can form a gut feeling or intuition about the way things are going to play out.
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 INFP prefers feeling to thinking (Using Introverted Feeling). The INFP has a rich inner world of morals, feelings, and ideals that it seeks to better understand. The INFP tends to use this inner guidance as a force to help shape the future world.
The INTJ prefers thinking to feeling (Using Extraverted Thinking). The INTJ wants the world to be logical and orderly. The INTJ wants conclusive plans of action and concrete understand of the way things works. This universal acceptance of logic is used to help the INTJ 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 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 INTJ prefers judging to perceiving. The INTJ prefers structure, routine, and planning things out versus being spontaneous. The INTJ wants to bring structure, order, and organization to their environment.
