Unfortunately, I don't have an answer. I've always viewed relationship dynamics as something personal and individual. I find it hard to simplify them down to only interactions between types. While some types may tend to have more compatibility in general, I tend to find that there are very many different sorts of relationships in love.I'm always drawn to ENFP men. We have SO much fun together. But it seems like in the end, those relationships are the ones that end in total disaster. Any ideas why this is? Do I have to give up on my ENFP men forever?
No I absolutely love ENTP women. I get along with them great.I'm always drawn to ENFP men. We have SO much fun together. But it seems like in the end, those relationships are the ones that end in total disaster. Any ideas why this is? Do I have to give up on my ENFP men forever?
The ENTP I hang around tends to be abrasive, and never realizes why what he just said was horrible. He thinks that, as long as he makes it a joke, it's fine.Why is that?
For the record, I fucking LOVE that movie. It's like Ne>Ti ecstasy! But I've noticed that a lot of ENTP's seem to need more explosive action-packed movies.Last night, a friend and I were watching a movie (Waking Life). While, admittedly, it's a bit strange (I even warned my friend that she'd probably find it odd. I just like seeing people's reactions to it.), my ENTP friend walks in, watches it for about ten seconds, and says, "Wow, this movie's horrible. Why are you watching it? I have about ten movies that are so much better than this. What's it about?"
I don't agree with you.I laughed so hard when I saw "ENFP + ENTP".
Both great personalities... but OHHHhhh so wrong for each other. One as genuine as you can be, the other totally disingenuous and loving it. But I guess an ENFP would see that so they should know they're getting into trouble.
I would guess the relationships just ended badly.I'm always drawn to ENFP men. We have SO much fun together. But it seems like in the end, those relationships are the ones that end in total disaster. Any ideas why this is? Do I have to give up on my ENFP men forever?
This actually sounds a lot like what happened with me and my ENTJ roommate. We got along FABULOUSLY, just always bouncing ideas back and forth, discussing life and education, and really just getting along well. Then we started living together and his cynical and critical side really began to become obvious to me. When we just saw each other every now and then it was fantastic. But, as time went on, his abrasiveness got to me.It could work, as any two healthy individuals of any personality type can make it work. But, yeah, I was good friends with my ENTP roommate for years. Our Ne exploded with one another and we had lots of fun the limited amount of time we had together.
But... once I started living with her..
I don't know. I just saw her more critical side a lot of the time. But it's just her. Not speaking for all ENTPs. She's certainly a special case. We get along well now. There was just a brief period of time she couldn't seem to stand me and in turn it made it hard for me to stand her. We're over that now, but she can be a bit insensitive occasionally. I find that so weird because I hear her talking to her other friends on skype and she can sound like the sweetest person ever. Sweet. It doesn't mean genuinely kind and concerned, although I'm sure she is for her friends to her own extent.
She does also tend to talk highly of herself sometimes. That can be annoying when I'm not in the mood for it.
But, yeah, that's just her. Trust me, though; we do have fun together sometimes and when that happens, it's pretty damn fun. She's very intelligent and witty. Just needs to be a little more sensitive about other people's feelings is all. She has far more tact than I do in public settings, but I have far more connection to someone than she does in a personal setting. I find that funny.
I'm more likely to say something 'inappropriate' that I'm not supposed to in a certain context (public, around children, around older social conservatives, etc), yet she's more likely to say something hurtful in a more personal setting. I'll accidentally on an impulse (or from not really caring or knowing) say something crude when I'm apparently not supposed to according to her and she'll be like "Dude! People!". Conversely, she might say something that might be a little rash and it'll hurt someone's feelings and I'll tell her "Ok, maybe that wasn't so cool", but she'll respond with how it's true; the person should deal with it.
Yeah, I'm just ranting now.
I'm sure there are amazing ENTP's out there in the world. This is just the one I live with and there was only tension between us when we lived together (well, still living together..)
Based off of our dynamic before we were roommates, I'd say it'd be a great match!
