    Do you think Idealists and Scientists can get along?

    I'm an INFP, which means I'm idealist, My sister is an INTJ which means Scientist , and like what we all know Idealists are dreamers, Creative,smart,feelers,independent, sensitive and sometimes dark and hard to read, complex and deep , and that's who I am actually but My sister is a scientist by nature, she's studying medicine , she's so so so so logical and rational, she doesn't believe in things like inspiration, imagination and Fantasy,emotionless sometimes, less social , strict, hard ,clear, leader,strategic and Intelligent but hell !! how would I get along with her ? she sees the whole as a mathematical equation, the most important think to her is the rules and the principles and I don't see it like that at all ,I love to imagine, I love fantasy , I'm found of Arts, I value ideas and opinions, I admire writers and Artists, I adore Literature and books, I dream of being a collage's English teacher and a Writer and she always makes fun of it, telling me that we don't need Writers anymore, all what we need is Sciences. and hell to sciences !! I don't care what people think of me, I have my own principles and rules ,I don't live to please my community ,even if it sounds Insane I don't care, I'm too too mind-opened that's why I get the-are-you- crazy look from a lot of people around me. is it wrong to think with a wide open mind ? it seems impossible for me to get along with a lot of people around me , sometimes I wonder if I am the only one with such personnality ? not having anyone able to understand you seems really hard on me .. my parents are too proud of my sister they see her as an ideal that I should follow but I don't want to, I have whole different Visions and I'm going for it ! and I will prove them wrong !!

    Frankly, your sister seems your ISTJ than INTJ. And, should she be an INTJ, she would have just a hard a time as you, if not harder, in getting others to understand her - female INTJs are the second rarest personality type, whereas INFPs are more common. People may look and her and think she is perfect, studied and independent and disciplined, but it can also have its faults. When people think of you in such a way, they begin to think you wouldn't be interested in [x], and if you are interested in [x], you must be more weird than they thought.

    Concerning your sister. You have the advantage of family blood; that means, you'll likely be able to relate to your sister more than if she were just a stranger. Relate to her interests, and try to find a middle ground with things you both enjoy. INFPs and INTJs can get along on principle, but it will all fail if they have nothing in common. Secondly, people will judge by your accomplishments. Don't concern yourself with how people think of you now, but how they will think of you when you've done what you want and you're happy in a position you enjoy. Chances are, it'll be better than how it is now.

    I'm sorry that you're having so much trouble getting along with her. Living life as an INFP is serious business.

    Sometimes, depending on how extreme the personality is, it can be quite difficult to reconcile the differences and make a good relationship. Other times, you can be surprised. I greatly enjoy my relationship with Singularity, who is an INTJ, but I'm not sure either of us are extreme versions of our type.

    I think the most surprising relationship that I keep is my friendship with my brother, who is an ESFJ (Evolution/Icarus.) We have huge differences in how we think, act, and spend our time. Yet somehow, we're pretty much best friends. So, I guess my point is that differences don't necessarily decide whether you can have a good relationship with someone. Sometimes it goes beyond that.

    I think that while it can be difficult when there are so many things you differ on, if you have respect for each other, good communication, and trust, any two healthy individuals can have a good relationship.

    I'm in the process of learning more about an INFP right now. I do see a lot of differences, but I am trying to take the time to understand their perspective.
