I think this is a more accurate chart, if
Socionics model A is complete (which I doubt). If model B is correct then semi-duals is a medium ideal match.

How to Find Yourself and Your Best Match. Socionics. The Modern Approach to Psychological Types
. All Intellectual Intuitive types are Complementary to the Emotional Sensory group and vice versa. All Intellectual Sensory types are Comlementary to the Emotional Intuitive group. Relationships between these groups are best for marriage and romance
. The subconscious of Intellectual Intuitive types is Emotional and Sensing. Partners in these relationships "cover each other's back". Together they cover all aspects of Informational Metabolism. They have the same type of emotionality, same type of sexuality, same type of thinking and understanding. Partners make each other comfortable and relaxed. These relationships do not contribute to personal growth. Although C1 is the best type of relationship, it's not that easy to establish. In the beginning, partners don't seem to see each other or attract to each other. It almost takes knowledge of Socionics to even enter in such relationship. Only as the time goes along, when partners engage in common activity and spend some time with each other, they start seeing each other's qualities and get attracted to each other. Once you've been in C1, you'll never want anything else. The types of relationships where partners easily get attracted to each other are C2 and C3. These are the most common of all happy marriages. Keep in mind that even complementary types may have problems with each other because of issues outside of Socionics.
. All types are Identical to the types of their own group. Relationships within the same group are best for personal growth. Best setup for these relationships is parent-child, teacher-student.
Once there is a gap in knowledge and experience, these relationships are best for passing experience from one partner to another. Partners may not be helpful in convering the weak sides of each other. Once the experience has leveled, partners may have nothing to talk about. They may even start competing in areas where other types wouldn't.
. All Intellectual Intuitive types are Quasi-Identical to the Intellectual Sensory group and vice versa. All Emotional Sensory types are Quasi-Identical to the Emotional Intuitive group and vice versa. Quasi-Identical types respect each other and listen to each other. Their views are interesting to each other, but are very different. They can't help each other achieve their goals because these goals are too different, and the ways of achieving them are completely different too. These relationships are best suitable for self learning from watching each other. Sometimes we need to use some behavioral patterns of our Quasi-Identical partners. Something that they do better than us. Partners have different sexuality and emotionality. These relationships are acceptable for friendship or business. As romantic relationships, they rarely survive long. If they do, they normally transform into friendship-type relationships.
. All Intellctual Intuitive types are Quasi-Complementary to the Emotional Intuitive group and vice versa. All Intellectual Sensory types are Quasi-Complementary to the Emotional Sensory group. Quasi-Complementary partners live in two different dimensions. When they communicate, both partners develop an illusion that they understand each other, have similar values and interests. This illusion may last very long and even lead to marriage, but sooner or later partners will discover that each lives with an imaginary person. Their eyes will be suddenly opened to the truth, and this moment is always unpleasant. At that point, they will have to either part friends, or face the truth as it is and just live together each in a world parallel to the other's. The entire insidiousness of these relationships is in fact that they are illusionary. Partners may find out the truth about each other when it is too late to break up.
Seven compatibility levels of relationships
Your partners within your Complementary cluster are not all equal, just as your partners in any other cluster. Each type of relationships belongs to a certain Compatibility Level. Compatibility Level tells us how compatible the partners in a certain type of relationship are from the standpoint of Socionics. Please, keep in mind that compatibility is a complex issue. Socionics is just a significant part of it, but not everything. To complete the entire compatibility picture you need to look at common values, educational level, other issues. Nothing will help, though, if you engage into an inappropriate Socioncis Relationship. Level 1 is best for marriage and common activity. If you want to be 100% happy with your partner and never dream of anything else, find your C1 partner. The desirability of relationships diminishes from Level 1 to Level 7.
R.K. Sedih, "Informational psychoanalysis" (Conflict Relations):
"Partners usually find each other quite interesting. Among socionists the most wide-spread name for this type of relations is "conflict". This is justified only on low level of interaction when both partners are poorly developed and un-dualized. In this case, partners not realizing it will hit each other's weakest spots. This is a very difficult situation if both of them have to live together, sharing a room for example. Situation improves if even one partner is dualized. In this case partners can affect each other positively and even derive benefit from these relations. This aspect of interaction is satisfactory only if there is tolerance between partners. In socionics, there is a tradition to consider this interaction as the most harsh and uncomfortable for the individual. My own research has shown, however, that it is almost always not the case. Over many years of studying socionics, I have not found any cases of such classic conflict as described by A. Augustinavichiute. Our observations and some recent theoretical developments suggest that in general this type of relation falls into the same level of comfort as semi-duality and activation relations."
