    @wums is definitely on to something.

    Not just ISTJs but STs in general tend to tease people they like. To the STs, it’s a sign of flirtation or endearment.
    To the NFS, it’s annoying, hurtful or even bullying.
    ENFPs tease too obviously but again, intuitive and sensors don’t always speak the same language and miscommunicate.

    I just recently read two stories of that scenario with two ESTP males and two ENFP females.

    Hmmm ...
    Based on personal experience...I guess I attract Se users , Si users finds me ridiculous

    SE tends to find me different, I think they're more drawn to me in my younger years ( late teen- early twenties) for I had that good girl charm or illusion of innocence that turned them on. Unsure if there is any cognitive functions involved that attracted them to me - for the most part it has always been the bad boys / jock that is looking for a school girl or innocent one to charm or date or the artist with similar tastes in politics, values, films and music
    I associated a lot with Se users bc I was in theater for years ( so lots of xsfps) and my isfp bff and istp bf tends to be friends with other SP and dated other Sp users .
    My partners friends - the ones that were attracted to me were isfp and estps - they enjoy how calm and easygoing I am , and the creativity amuses them . I'm also a big sports fan ( basketball, baseball ,hockey, boxing etc) and film fan - so conversation flows easier and I know it's rare to have an extremely feminine woman talk and analyze sports. But for the most part I believe they think I look submissive ( am I? Hahaha no clue)

    @Fru2 @Alassea

    Well ISTJs don't like feeling all vulnerable lol. They might make a project out of ENFPs to avoid becoming emotional or scattered themselves. They wouldn't know what to do with feelings so they'd use an extra helping of Te before they became aware what they're feeling.

    This is also my experience. I attract so many heavy Se users because of how different I am while heavy Si users only give me that unflattering weird eye.

    When they see my Ne/Fi, I noticed the Se users (specifically from ESTP males) light up with amusement but like in a good way. They don’t usually put down whatever’s weird from me like the stereotypes say and at times, even encourage it.
    Many also seem to like the challenge the ENFPs bring into their lives.

    We keep them on their toes. :))

    Very true - Se enjoys being compelled and enfp gets more compelling as we unfolded

    I remain immensely practical, but now I'm practical for others. (In other words, I take all that practical stuff off you so you can daydream all day long. How's that sound for a deal?)


    TP and FP both are supposed to value individualism. Be "different" all you like, I'll support you doing whatever you want*. Different is good. Quirky and weird is good. Sameness is boring. So there's that -- and with that as the shared base, the attractive part is the IT <--> EF inversion. So different from me. <--- DIFFERENT. Really cool. Tell me more.

    most definitely, and odds-on I like every second of it. (Until I don't, but that's not a problem limited to any particular relationship.)

    That's the theory. In practice, much like Alassea, I doubt types have much to do with it, and people fall in love not caring and knowing about types, quite thankfully.


    *This hardly seems to work with e.g. NFJs I have around. It took me 30 years to figure out that "pick whatever you want" is a supremely unhelpful answer for them when asked for your opinion. It never occurred to me that it might be -- because it was a compliment on my part: I trust your judgement and respect whatever you pick. But what they wanted was my opinion because it basically made up their mind, and that concept, in turn, was really alien from where I was coming.

    Okay, I'm sold, where do I sign up to get an ISTP?

    I mean, seriously, I can see the connection working really well for me. Practicality to ground me but freedom to be me.

    Yeah I discovered that the hard way too. Hah, that offer seemed to induce a panic attack but I soon learned to love the fact I could take charge.

    On top of the tallest hill in your general area. Unless you mean the female variant, in which case it's also the most remote hill. I hear they exist there. Personal evidence is fleeting, much sadness :(

    It's love language #4 (plus #2 and #5). The problem is the lack of #1. Different also means both sides have to learn and compromise; otherwise, it easily becomes a deal-breaker.

    Probably because what they heard was "I want you to know me well enough to know what I prefer". Well, I still dislike telling people what to do. I just make an effort now to actually have an opinion because I know it's important to them, but that's the family-and-friends exception. In a close personal relationship, this would really irritate me.

    I always love to read your own comments and inputs. You're by far, the classiest and most intelligent ISTP on this forum (in my opinion) not that I have seen many ISTPs to begin with.

    In your everyday life, have you had your own experiences with ENFPs in the romantic sense? Any stories to tell?
