This is a discussion on LOL would ESTP date INFP long term? within the ESTP Forum - The Doers forums, part of the SP's Temperament Forum- The Creators category; I donno.......
Aside from chemistry, and MBTI
The enneagram compatibility matters here too, I would think
I don’t think an INFP and ESTP though are the most ideal pairing in most cases but depends on the two people involved etc
My daughter is an INFP
I just think of how her and I mentally compliment each other and where we conflict
It’s not emotional connection I struggle to see here in all honesty
It’s mental compatibility like long game stuff and how the two operate
What popped into my head is the ESTP getting bored with the INFP. I think it would work out better for people who were mature, developed in their types because they would be more open to and understanding of one another's differences and not so caught up in their own top two functions.
My siblings are both ESTP. The only thing I don't want to do is bungee jumping or jumping out of a plane. But like doopdedoop I get bored so easily I need a new experience everytime. The only thing an ESTP might not like however is how we perceive each activity. ESTPs might find things fun by "just being there" but I have to be "doing something" for it to be fun. If you get what I'm saying... :/ And ESTPs seem to not care if they've already been somewhere, its like they get enjoyment from just being outside, whereas for me I get enjoyment from...well, err.. I don't know how to explain it. Say if we go on a bush walk but the scenery doesn't change or is just horrendous, I would be bored, but an ESTP would probably enjoy it because they're moving their body. I find the scenery more enjoying than the actual walking, and the ESTP seems to find the walking more enjoyable than the scenery or both.
@doopdedoop ESTPs need downtime too. :D But they might be bored with the type of book or movie,not the activity itself. Say, I watched Predator with my brother two weeks ago. I found it really boring, but he enjoyed it. But I didn't want to leave because I know he wanted to spend some time with me. And the other day I just could not pick a song to play because we both like very different music, mostly.

I prefer to walk by myself because I like observing things, thinking and looking at birds etc. But other people go on a walk just to walk, they might look at the scenery but their main goal is to just keep walking >_> If I'm with people I usually trail behind because of looking at nature haha, the others just power ahead, gotta go fast. This should be their theme song:
Male ESTP & Female INFP, very likely.
Male INFP & Female ESTP, don't think so.
It can work if they're both healthy and mature
