"The better way to think about it is there's potential in every relationship.What you should be focusing on is how do I get to understand who that other person actually is, and how they naturally prefer to approach their lives." The real advantage of knowing someone's type starts on that first date "when oftentimes you are coming to them in a way that you feel that they need you to be or want you to be, versus who you really are." The four letters become a shortcut to see through the mask not only you wear but they also do, too.Say, 'Great, let's talk a little bit more about that. As an ISTJ, he was logical and detail driven; as an ENFJ, I was feeling and big picture-oriented.In our arguments, he'd seem cold and indifferent to me; I'd seem unnecessarily emotional to him.[Meanwhile,] the F-type is thinking, 'Well gosh, if I invite this person, then the other person might wonder why they weren't included.' They're just more focused on what is the impact of this decision on other people?
But they're far from guaranteed "because there's more to every relationship than just personality type." Still, Overbo noted a few red flags with opposite pairings: "That can be a great combination when you're looking for balance, but it can also cause some hiccups along the way." An example: After a hard day, an E-type may want to talk and "can be seen as maybe barraging [an I-type] with a lot of conversation and a lot of talking.
The I-type is thinking, 'I really want to go into a quiet room and do some reflecting on my day and have my own personal space.
I really need to get energized before I'm ready to engage in that kind of discourse.'" "A lot of times that can cause some issues" because S-types are more detailed-oriented and N-types are more big-picture.
The INFP was specifically called out as a strong match.
So I'd search for that, and the further someone's type was from it, the less seriously I'd take them as a love interest. But Jennifer Overbo, the director of MBTI product strategy, told me that my particular interpretation of how to use MBTI—searching for an INFP to date—was misguided.
