This is a discussion on INFJ/INTP Golden Pair within the INFJ Forum - The Protectors forums, part of the NF's Temperament Forum- The Dreamers category; This concept goes back: https://www.personalitycafe.com/infj...ationship.html...
My ex is an INTP, and I'm currently with another INTP whom I can definitely see myself spending my life with.
Not exactly sure why INFJ/INTP would be the golden pair, but to me at least, my relationship with my INTP is golden. The list of whys is long, and I honestly don't know where to even start, so I guess I won't start at all.
But my INTP and I have agreed it must be because of our Fe/Ti dynamics...and we just simply stabilize and balance each other's weaknesses with our own strengths. He helps me with improving my Ti and I help develop his Fe. I'm also perpetually attracted to his Ne.
If I were to compare, one of the things that really made a difference in my connection with my current partner is how compatible our instincts (enneagram) are, how we share the same priorities when it comes to nurturing the relationship...something I wasn't able to achieve with my sp-dom ex.
(Not to say of course that only these factors matter! :)
I like the way you think, especially making these points “My question on the matter is, what exactly is supposed to be golden about the pairing? Just the relationship? Or something much greater? Is this supposed to be a golden pairing for society? From my own perspective, I see this as something meant to shape the future of humanity. As extreme as that sounds, that is the only thing I perceive as "golden" when it comes to human bonding.”
when I brought this topic up I didn’t think about perspective just the title that’s been buzzing around. Like the previous post by TEMPTINGTHESEA mentioning the Ti/Fe strengths and weaknesses, I too think this is why my SO and I work well together. We are best friends who build each other up attempting to achieve true Eudiamonia.
Personally, I'm at this point in my life where I've just been keen on strengthening and looking for ways to improve my (rather neglected)Ti which is then reciprocated by my SO's efforts to pay attention to his inferior Fe and do something about it. I guess we just met at a time when we were both finally ready and willing to learn something from the other.
knife was an ENTP?
I think one of the reasons I tend to get well along with INTPs is that I tend to favour Ti over Fe, if not to that degree. Can't imagine being in a romantic relationship with one though, as I need my partner to be more emotional than I am.
People are also divided when it comes to his type. Even he himself!
My best college buddies are xNTPs, too. I always needed them to get me out of my loop (though they could be too blunt and cold sometimes xD). So I guess for a romantic partner, that’s also what I’m looking for. :)
Gold, the gold standard, the standard all other currencies are measured by, the most valuable and precious metal, your doing well, 'you're golden' no need to worry, the golden child, the chosen one, the golden boy - Freddie Mercury lyrics "I love you for your silence, I love you for your peace, The still and calm releases, That sweep into my soul, That slowly take control, I love you for your passion, I love you for your fire, The violent desire, That burns me in it's flame, A love I dare not name".
I think INFJ-INTP golden pair just means a rare and precious compatibility.
INTP's Ti in INFJ's tertiary/hidden agenda.
"Every person has a hidden agenda. This agenda often governs one's intentions and behaviour. People are often unaware of its origin, but can always feel its significance. Some people are more affected by it than other people. Every type requires an optimal condition in which it can function properly. If such condition does not exist, a person will normally attempt to create it. However, due to the nature of the hidden agenda, if and when the optimal condition is reached, the person will occasionally put themselves in a situation where the stability of this condition is threatened."
INFJ's Fe co-pilot in INTP's inferior.
"The inferior function represents the ultimate goal or attractor point for each personality type’s growth and development. It is what motivates and draws us forward, compelling us to live more authentically and to move toward greater truth and wholeness."
Both types psychologically activate each other a great deal, but it is asymmetrical because INTP's need help with their inferior more than INFJ's with their tertiary. However, INTP's also provide the most mature expression (Ti dominant) of INFJ's tert.
Which is kind of interesting because (anecdotal) I've noticed over the years, a number of posts from INTP's being very enthralled with INFJ's, but often expressing this fear or inadequacy, of being unable to give back to INFJ what INTP receives. Which is why, in socionics, it's considered 'beneficiary relations'. The INTP will push themselves further out of their comfort zone for INFJ's, than any other type... in an attempt to 'ingratiate', understand, support and balance the psychological exchange.
I mean, I don't really know how well any of it pans out in reality, but it sounds kinda neat.
