    INFP and ENFJ - good romantic match?

    I was just wondering how any INFPs view ENFJs as a romantic parter? We are supposedly the perfect match, so, you know, any opinions or personal experiences on whether INFPs and ENFJs go well together or not? And if there happen to be any ENFJs reading this post then what do you think of INFPs romantically speaking? Or even any ENTJs?

    I'm married to one and marrying her was the best decision I made in my life.

    it works if you're both mature and mentally healthy individuals, otherwise not so much. Basically: Soulmate or Clusterf**k nightmare :) take it from me Ive known several of them

    I agree that INFPs and ENFJs are very complementary to each other. My very best guy friend is an INFP -- but there was never a romantic interest from either side, nor will there ever be. We instantly got each other when we first met, i definitely felt like he was a kindred spirit. But we get each other so well that it's more like a sibling love/dynamic than anything....

    Although, i'm an ENFJ type 2w3 (so/sp/sx). He's an INFP type 9w1 (sp/sx/so).

    Maybe a romantic spark would be more conducive to another type of INFP! No idea. I haven't met many IRL.

    According to every MBTI forum and the influx of them you sometimes get here, yes...

    I think, functions wise, ENFJs use our shadow functions and I guess are our shadow self, and vice versa. I guess it's a good match; we can understand one another well enough to relate with each other, but we are also different and can offer us a new perspective and compliment one another's strengths. That, providing both people are healthy, I can understand why there's so many success stories.

    I'm still waiting for one, btw

    ENFJs are the INFP's natural partners, in that we compliment each other and fit each other amazingly well. There are always other types that can work smashingly with us, it's just with the ENFJs, they understand us on a very deep level but they are also different from us in a way that they can make up for our lacks or even flaws. We also give them strengths where they are lacking as well, so it works out. I find that extroverts tend to have longer, more successful relationships when they partner up with an introvert even more so than when they get together with another extrovert. Don't ask me why that is, but I'm assuming that us introverts can help ground them and calm them down when they get into one of those overly-social or stressful times. If one extrovert is stimulated to the max, another extrovert may start to freak out as well and then problems may arise. With an introvert, we provide comfort and serenity.

    Oh, and extroverts can teach us not to be so shy with others, so there's that as well.

    I agree with this 100%.

    I was my most grounded/balanced self when i lived with my INFP roommate. After she moved out, I had an ESTP move in and we definitely clashed and couldn't find a way to communicate with each other. Really awkward and filled with extremes of passive aggressive & aggressive aggressive drama. blech, it was horrible. I'm happily living on my own now, but i really don't think i could live with anyone else again other than another INFP or my future partner.

    I'm highly social, and never leave enough time for myself to just relax and stay at home. I have a high stress job, and instead of balancing my stress with time to myself -- i fill my time outside of work with meetings and social events. Occasionally, I'll overextend myself and end up feeling like I'm running around like a chicken with it's head cut off. My INFP roommate was always a grounding force for me. Transversely, she didn't have a lot of confidence or will to put herself out there socially/romantically. She wasn't too interested in making new friends or meeting new people -- to her it was too much work. I was able to facilitate her breaking out of her shell and she developed quite a few strong friendships from doing so!

    To me, when i lived with an INFP and having an INFP in my life was like having a warm fuzzy blanket fresh out of the dryer that just wrapped me up at the end of the day, making me feel like everything in the world was ok. A kind of comfort that was calming.

    give me an intj any day! I think it would be draining to have an extrovert partner. That's my experience of having extrovert friends. They can be lovely, but exhausting!
