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 ISFJ prefers introversion to extraversion. The ISFJ is energized by their alone time and uses it to sort things out. The ISFJ wants things to make sense and will use the past as a predictor of future events.
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 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 ISFJ prefers sensing to intuition (Using Introverted Sensing). The ISFJ takes in the world in a concrete/matter of fact manner. The ISFJ remembers facts, places, and uses past events to predict future outcomes.
Feeling and Feeling
Two feeling types can make for a very warm and inviting relationship. Both types are in tune with the feelings of others and can cater to their needs. However, they may have problems with becoming overwhelmed with finances or being more objective in certain situations.
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 ISFJ prefers feeling to thinking (Using Extraverted Feeling). The ISFJ lives in the emotional and feeling world. The ISFJ is in touch with others emotions and knows how to respond to them to put others at ease.
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 ISFJ prefers judging to perceiving. The ISFJ prefers structure, routine, and planning things out versus being spontaneous. The ISFJ wants to bring structure, order, and harmony to their environment.
