    INFP male and ISFP female relationship

    Is this a good pair boyfriend/girlfriend wise?

    Personally, I think any relationship between any MBTI type can be good. Its more about the individuals themselves and their chemistry.

    That said, I guess it'd be an interesting dynamic because I've read that both types reach the same conclusion in different ways. I think INFPs and ISFPs have a lot in common despite the N/S difference. Anyway, don't sweat it. If you think way too much about the MBTI compatibility of your relationship, you might ruin it. XD

    Are you with an ISFP? Or thinking of asking an ISFP out?

    Agreed, don't let MBTI ever stop you from pursuing a relationship with someone you think is a good match for you, I have several close ENTJ friends even though they're complete opposites. That said, ISFPxINFP generally works together well type wise, I'm currently in the same relationship just with genders reversed.

    The biggest thing I'd warn you about is try your best not to worry too much if she doesn't often say that she loves you. We're generally very bad at communicating our feelings and would much rather show you that we love you rather than say it. Showing/Giving you something relevant to your interests to show she listens to you, surprise hugs/kisses, being there if you need someone to talk to, even if she doesn't say much, that's how you'll know.

    Of course, this could all just be me and not characteristic of her at all, so don't take it as a hard and fast rule. ^_^

    Neither, I'm just contemplating the dynamic. I wouldn't date based on type alone but so far based on what I've heard about them they do seem very interesting and I like what I hear. I just think as far as natural compatibility goes this seems like a good one.

    the dynamic should be something like this (kindred relationship since both of you are Fi dominant):

    I've dated an INFP male pretty long term. I dated a second INFP briefly.

    The dynamic works out pretty nicely. Fi-dom + Fi-dom = a lot of opening up and understanding.

    We did however have some classic Ne/Si and Se/Ni clashes at times. But ultimately, we were both going through a lot of changes and figuring out ourselves and our outlook. We began dating at 18/19, broke up when we were 24/25ish. I'm very happy we met and had an opportunity to spend a good portion of our lives together, though.

    I recall, one of his issues with me, was not always verbally expressing my love for him. He didn't understand my small gestures of appreciation for him, often failing to recognize them. And at times he felt underappreciated because of this. But we could also usually talk it out if he just brought it up.

    Yeah this is what I figured and it's why I like even contemplating it. Shared Fi-dom helps communicate and the rest adds intrigue to the relationship via variety

    Not really worried about this, doubt it will be anything apart from a minor annoyance

    ......... of the above quote. Gestures are fine, there are different INFP's out there and I personally don't like to much display of emotion in verbal format.

    As long as you got this it's as perfect as human relationships can be. No couple is without there problems, but it becomes trouble if there's a failure to communicate.

    Well honestly. I think it would be great. I have never dated one, but I have a bestie that's an male infp. I honestly think the infp/isfp relationship should start slow like a friendship. Because honestly the thought of jumping into dating first terrifies me, it will be awkward. But if we start as friends and I become familiar with you, it'll be easier. I think its more about gaining my trust. If you rush me I recoil inward, the infps that I know have always been gentle and patient with me which I deeply appreciate. But once that isfp barrier is passed, I have no problem expressing my feelings and inner world. If I am rushed ill instantly think that you have ulterior motives. The more patient and loyal the more I open up. I just unwrap peices of myself slowly.

    I think they would be a quirky and cute couple. Will probably seem or be inseparable. Rarely will either argue since neither likes conflict. I think once that barrier is passed it can be a beautiful thing depending on the individual. Not to mention be protective over each other. Because when it comes to my bestie and people hurting him it really pisses me off and vice vera. A lot of people always assume I'm dating my friend because the way we act with each other.and it makes us feel awkward because he is homosexual and I'm heterosexual. Then we may laugh and he'll jokingly tell me "Those fools are unaware [insert hilarious infp joke here]"

    @GoldiexCandyxStarz Thanks for your response. I notice your status says dating. Do you mind if I ask what type he is or what type you think he is and how it's going?
