    INFJ/INTP Golden Pair

    Hello! I apologize if there is a thread that is already about us! I couldn’t find it anywhere. I’m an INFJ and my boyfriend is an INTP. I thought it would be great to create a place for other INFJ/INTP couples to share their experiences and possibily goofy moments.

    I happened to think about this a while ago (the infj/intp pairing question) but didn't get far because I was attracted to the idea of a ENFJ/INTP pairing a bit more. From a literal standpoint (the guidelines that depict both personalities) greatness can come from this type of team/companionship, be it for love or work, but I think the caveat is the introvert nature of both individuals. In order for this pairing to be "golden" as it would be on paper, one of the mates would need to step into the light and be the extrovert. In that, someone will need to guide the pair. I think that would need to come from a Female in the relationship as an introvert man is probably more likely to be stuck in our ways and needy (that would me- INTP) unless an extreme motivator came into the mix. Where as a female may tend to be more laxed to social and emotional "discomfort" in some respects.


    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.

    I think a more natural "golden" pairing...well probably a "silver" pairing for myself is with an ISTP. I find most people I perceive to be ISTP's to be bold enough for me, but not overbearing with guiding the relationship. But in that same right, ISTP's can be very hipster'ish and equally stubborn which would kill the relationship in short order, as it has for me in previous relationships.

    So maybe there is something to the INTP/INFJ pairing that would work for a lot of people if the connection was necessary or beneficial.

    INTPs are great, but what makes the pairing "golden"? The most commonly mentioned "best" INFJ pairings are INFJ+ENFP (usually M+F) and INFJ+ENTP (usually F+M). You don't see INFJ+INTP too often but it can be great no doubt.

    To be fair, "golden" doesn't mean typical or popular. So it being rare doesn't detract from the fact it has a special perceived value.

    I too am curious why of all couples, INFJ/INTP is the only one I know of to get such an esteemed title. I have never found an answer anywhere online for this.

    Curious to see what other people have to say about this relationship however.

    I’m curious about this, as well. I’ve found a number of articles and posts referencing Personality Junkie as their source. AJ Drenth’s article says that INFJ/INTPs are “Sometimes dubbed ‘the golden pair’” but references no sources. His post is from 2014, and I haven’t found any references pre-dating that, so I’d be willing to guess he’s the originator of the term...especially since he’s an INTP and Elaine Schallock is an INFJ.

    Him making it up would make perfect sense.

    As all things toted as being excellent...

    In any case, I think there is some merit to the claim looking at the individual descriptions of both personalities. But for the most part, it seems kind of narcissistic and one-sided on behalf of the INTP. It's only golden in the sense that the INFJ is extremely nurturing for the INTP. There isn't a situation where i see the INFJ gaining anything from the relationship emotionally. If that's not important for INFJ's then i guess it's all gravy......golden.

    INFJ

    I don't know about INFJ/INTP romantic relationships, but my brother is INTP and we get along very well and understand eachother, he can be annoying when he is lazy or doesn't take things seriously but I sometimes think that I wouldn't mind being with someone who has my brother's personality, we wouldn't have many problems or clashes+we would have a similar sense of humour..etc.
