INFJ Meets ENTP

INFJs usually get along well with ENTPs. This may be surprising when one considers that they have only one Myers-Briggs trait in common—intuition (N). With their tendency toward introversion (I), INFJs are reserved and shy. Extraverted (E) ENTPs are gregarious and outgoing. As a feeling type (F), INFJs base their decisions on emotional factors, mainly […]

INFJ Meets ESFJ

When an INFJ and ESFJ are drawn to each other, the attraction becomes obvious fairly quickly— although the ESFJ is usually the more transparent of the two and is likely to make the first overtures. INFJs are generally cautious until they’re sure of a relationship. ESFJs are generous and outgoing, giving without any thought of […]

INFJ Meets ENFJ

People of the INFJ and ENFJ Myers-Briggs types usually make compatible friends and partners. It makes sense when you look at their shared traits: intuition, feeling, and judging. The two types differ only in their tendencies toward introversion and extraversion, and that’s not all bad. The introverted INFJ is likely to encourage the ENFJ to spend […]

INFJ meets ISTJ

It’s fair to say that any two people with this combination of Myers-Briggs traits are likely to have adjustment problems if they’re to function smoothly together. While they are joined in their preference for privacy (introversion), this isn’t enough to make them compatible. Both have a preference for judging, as well, but they use the […]

How INFJs Can Lose Out

      People of every Myers-Briggs type can carry their preferences too far, with unhappy results. This usually happens when the person is under pressure or stressed. INFJs are no exception. They are introverted, intuitive, feeling, and judging creatures—sometimes a recipe for overreaction. As gifted as INFJs are, life isn’t easy for them. With their […]

INFJ Meets INFJ

  When two INFJs find each other, they’re lucky. After all, only one in one hundred people is an INFJ. INFJs have many desirable personality traits. They are kind, generous, and helpful to others. When friends or even strangers are in trouble, INFJs hurry to the rescue. They’re ready to offer creative solutions or hands-on […]

INFJ Meets ISFP

    As one of sixteen Myers-Briggs types, the INFJ is introverted (I), intuitive (N), feeling (F), and judging (J). A little different from the ISFP—who shares the introverted (I) and feeling (F) traits but not the intuitive (N) and judging (J) traits. Both have a need for some privacy to collect themselves and regroup. If […]

INFJ Meets ESTP

When an INFJ meets an ESTP, some special chemistry must be at work for them to enjoy time together. These Myers-Briggs types are exact opposites. The INFJ (I) is introverted—a private person. The ESTP (E) is sociable and outgoing. INFJs rely more on intuition (N) than concrete facts to reach conclusions. ESTPs use their sensing […]
