In terms of MBTI+, it's not as simple as INFJ-ENFP or INFJ-ENTP, you have to consider other factors, like love languages, political personality type, modalities, Growth Temperaments, Frequency Temperaments, Emotional Temperaments, and Role Temperaments.
LOL, I love how the NFs are literally incompatible with half the types.
In terms of the matches and the colour codes, though - I just noticed that some types (like Entj) have no red/bad matches.... and some types like ISFP..don't have any dark green/good matches. Weird......
I am really not buying into Si dom and Se doms being ideal pairs.
In my opinion also FJ and especially SFJ are quite accepting and dont really have "terrible" match ups. Red bars for SFJ x NF types makes no sense to me. In general chart seems trash.
NFs seems here being " special snowflake type." I felt misunderstood in my life, i must be NF type".

Where did you get this chart?
I find it a bit strange that there are 8 types who have several very bad matches, and 4 that have none. As an INTP I've never before seen a generalization that shows my type as a good match with more people than types do on average. Aren't we supposed to be the weirdos with no relationships?
Also, the one sided match is a bit of a mystery. How is it a match at all? One likes the other but doesn't get liked back? Which is which?
Honestly, I'm strongly opposed to most if not all "compatibility" assessments. This one's particularly unusual, pretty imbalanced. I appreciate the disclaimer at the bottom but I genuinely don't think on the whole that it's really a good reference at all.
IMO there's just no way you can formulize whether a particular relationship is going to work or not. There's chemistry that happens between people that's beyond what can be dissected into known information. It can retrace paths in your brain you haven't used in decades, can dig deep into your unconscious, can forge entirely new connections. And this isn't even to begin to address the potential of people identifying as types that really don't match well with their personalities (I know all of us on this site didn't decide on our best type on first guess... and some have taken years to settle into one if we ever have at all). There's a "space between" people that doesn't exist until you engage with them, and it's formed both by and during your interaction. Then it becomes a tri-directional influence... me... you... and us... and you and us on me... and me and us on you... and then again and again and again... micro-cultures and dialects get created within couples and impact them from the inside... worlds within worlds within worlds...
Even if you did know, you can list every dang variable in the book but there's no way to encapsulate the way your date suddenly reminds you of your late grandfather when he opens the car door for you or whether the way she laughs in the sun makes you think of the description of the first girl that ever stirred your emotions in a novel or how he describes the sunset in a way that changes the whole way you perceive the world or how them breaking into laughter when you accidentally drop the little tray of fries you were bringing them makes you burst into laughter too before you both get on the floor and scoop them all up together.
All that said, I don't think it's an awful idea to think about compatibility. I just think it needs to be done on an individual basis, not a group basis. Figure out what speaks to you, because you'll know. Think about the kind of people that light you up. Maybe it's IxxJs or SFs or IxTPs. Maybe it won't have anything to do with MBTI at all. Maybe it's something as crazy as guys with big shoulders or people who love rock climbing. Who cares? You don't have to figure out what works for everyone - just you, and the ones you love.
