    Male Taken INFPs: what's the type of your girlfriend and how it's going on?

    I'm straight and single, and would like to know how to approach to different types (literally!) of women.

    I never have saw the relationships under a MBTI POV and I believe can help me. I also ask this 'cause I was not looking for a relationship for years, and I'm starting to change this.

    After all, thanks to everyone which is disposed to help.

    She's an INFP and we've been happily married for 11 years now.

    Could you tell more? I don't want to know only if works or not, but how. What to do, what to avoid and more hints beyond this.

    Feel free to write, I don't fear walls of text! ;)

    Cognition theory is automatically thinking too much about it. Walk up, say hi. This is how you approach all 16 types.

    I'm dating an INFP but it's a girl but we're lesbians so technically it's an INFP dating a girl, which is kiiiiinda what you're looking for?

    Regardless - I find that the INFP/ENTJ works really well. It does require a lot of dialogue patience on both our parts, because we're so different and we can aggravate each other on little things. But it's great. She's amazing. Wouldn't trade it for anything.

    As for approaching, well, to be fair, I was the one who approached her. Repeatedly. Like at least seven times.

    it eventually got through her thick head that I liked her, at least

    I get your point. Sure, the first approach will always be say Hi, how are you, what do you like... But I want a long-term relationship. And I'm asking this here, 'cause I want to know how to deal with issues of daily life, according to people differences.

    Thanks for help. You had problem with control? ENTJ are leaders and I really don't like to be led. My expectation is more on a relationship eye-to-eye.

    My husband is ENTJ and he is absolutely NOT controlling. NTJs like to control things, not people. NTJs know they are a bit clueless about emotions. They keep mental lists and charts of What Makes My Human Happy and try really hard to stick to the list.

    Married to an INFJ, and I'm a bit of an INF/TP. But in my view the biggest contribution of MBTI is that we realize we are wired differently and don't expect the other person to conform to our natural mode of operating. Different strengths and weaknesses and all that stuff. Not trying to change a person or expect them to follow your instinctual path cuts out like over half the conflicts.

    We're both tops but to quote her when we started this relationship, "That's okay, we'll take turns like adults"

    Joking aside, because we have a complimentary set of skills, it works pretty well. I don't mind having her take control in the things I'm bad at - like the emotional side of things - and she often lets me have a say on the stuff I'm good at, like logistics and making plans. It's satisfying. We talk things out pretty well

    INFP - The Idealists

    My girlfriend of almost 19 years is an ENFP. We appreciate what each other needs, and we're compatible enough that it doesn't bring pain to fulfill those. The conflicts over the years could be brutal emotionally but those are more rare. When we're at our best together, we communicate through humor and keep things light. She's my best friend.
