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 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.
The ESFP prefers extraversion to introversion. The ESFP gets energized by people and wants to take in the world through their five senses to better experience it.
Sensing and Sensing
Two sensors will get along well. They both live in the real and the concrete. They are good at living in the present, but they may have some troubles foreseeing potential problems down the line.
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.
The ESFP prefers sensing to intuition (Using Extraverted Sensing). The ESFP wants to make sense of the world and uses their five senses of touch, feel, see, taste, and smell to better understand the present moment.
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 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.
The ESFP prefers feeling to thinking (Using Introverted Feeling). The ESFP has a rich inner world of morals, feelings, and ideals that it seeks to better understand. The ISFP tends to use this inner guidance as a force to express themselves in the world.
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 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.
The ESFP prefers the Perceiving preference to Judging. The ESFP prefers to leave time for decisions instead of coming to an immediate conclusion. The ESFP prefers new experiences and flexible possibilities to predictable moments.
