So I've been reading around, and it seems that a lot of times SJ's pair up with SP's,
and NT's pair up with NF's.
From personal experience it seems that this would make a good model,
and it seems like David Keirsey made similar observations.
The first two letters are mutual, and the last two are are switched around:

ESTJ + ESFP
ESFJ + ESTP
ENTJ + ENFP
ENFJ + ENTP
ISTJ + ISFP
ISFJ + ISTP
INTJ + INFP
INFJ + INTP


And I was wondering what you guys think about this model?
It could be my bias because I once dated an ISFJ,
and according to this "Theory" of compatibility, we made a good match.
She bought out emotions in me that I never knew existed lol
But of course it didn't work out, but I still think we were very compatible.
And of course there are many factors in a relationship, so..

does anyone find this model worth examining?
Could it be the 'Perfect' Compatibility model? in terms of friendships/dating/love?
Any experiences? is Myers Briggs Compatibility model a better model?
is Socionics a better model from personal experience?
Anyone found a better Compatibility model?
Is there such thing as a 'Perfect' match? etc. etc.
any input would be useful to my understanding of the world, and just about everyone else reading too lol

Myers Briggs says:

ESTJ + ISTP
ESFJ + ISFP
ENTJ + INTP
ENFJ + INFP
ISTJ + ESFP
ISFJ + ESTP
INTJ + ENFP
INFJ + ENTP


Which still says that SP+SJ and NT+NF make a good match.
and the socionics model is little more complicated..

I don't believe in beginning from that end. If you feel you work well with another person, the MBTI (or other models) might be a good way to reach deeper understanding for each other, helping the relationship to develop. But looking for a certain type because you read that it should work great, or cut a relationship short because your types aren't perfect for each other in theory doesn't exactly sound like a good idea to me.

I can say that ISTP + ISFJ works really well for me. I don't think I could stand a strong Te or Fi type for very long, though.
