Any time I read an article about INFJs and relationships, it seems to repeat the same advice: our “ideal” match is the ENTP personality type.Then there is almost always a statement about how any two personality types can make a relationship work if they try hard enough.They are sensitive to social situations and love connecting with all types of people.
Some extroverted personality types are less social than others, and these are the ones I mesh with the best.
They are social and talkative, but they also respect my need for quiet and calm environments.
ENFJ (“The Giver”)Most of my closest friends are ENFJs. It’s like we are somehow magnetically drawn to each other.
We are equally passionate and concerned about similar issues, but we go about our passions in different ways.
In my experience as an INFJ, extroverted types that I get along well with include the following: ENFP (“The Inspirer”)The ENFPs I have known are full of life.
What I love most about them is that they are truly free spirited.
I think the most glaringly obvious advantage to having a relationship with an introvert is that they understand our need for solitude.
It is comforting beyond words when another person understands your quiet moments and does not question you when you are lost in thought.
Overall, I think extroverts make life exciting for INFJs.
Some incredibly extroverted types may be taxing on an INFJ’s quiet nature, but those are the types we learn to enjoy in smaller doses.
This information may not apply to every INFJ, or the other personality types I have described below, but it is based on the patterns of behavior I have observed in my lifetime.
