Well...it's hard to say. But it might be easier with a bit more information.

Also, the information in your post is confusing...are you ISTP or ISTJ?

I find ISTJs very mysterious because I simply cannot read them. They also never seem to be overly mushy or too clingy. I suppose I see how that could be intriguing from the INFP standpoint. However, I find it interesting (assuming you are sure you're an ISTJ) that you are interested in an INFP. I never felt that either of the ISTJs I knew best valued any of my "strong suits" very much.

If both of you are able to accept your differences and appreciate each other for them, rather than expecting each other to function as mirror images of one another, then it could work. I think any types can work together with a little mutual admiration and a lot of effort and patience.

I like to think Spock (from Star Treck) is either an ISTJ or INTJ, and I have a hugeeee crush on him. So maybe it'd work :)
In the early episodes of the original series, Spock was most definitely ISTJ, albeit an extreem one! Allegedly, later on he became INTJ, but I have yet to see this and if so, this is a product of poor script writing and continuity because one does not change one's personality like that as a fully developed adult!
