It's something to discuss and let's face it, it is the potential problem areas that may require a bit more effort or understanding.
Like many things it's a tool, it's all in how it's used.
Possibly a bit more decisive, but I do ok.3) What types were your exes? It has always caused problems when I needed to withdraw and de-compress..took it personally, no matter what I said to the contrary or how I tried to prepare them for it.
So, to understand this further, let's ask a few questions.1) What MBTI type are you? BTW, I've been in a marvelous relationship with an INFJ for many years, and I remain convinced that MBTI screening is very useful.Well lets see, one poster who thinks he is a television network and another who is just the type to avoid. Yep it seems odd, but I tend to get INFJs in my life big time.Unfortunately or maybe fortunately most members there tend to be in 20s and 30s. There are also couple intp mailing lists if you google for them.1) What MBTI type are you? INTJ2) What types of each characteristic would you like to change and enhance about yourselves? If nothing else it can point out areas in your personalities that may be an area of potential conflict.
Doesn't mean you may not want to date someone, or if you're already in a relationship, kind of like a warning side to avoid a pothole in the road.
After all I am just a rural hick playing out in the woods.
I think "NT"s are rather a minority amoung the feminine gender.
And altogether "NT" women (INTP, INTJ, ENTP, ENTJ) maybe only around 20% or less of the population. Oddly my all time favorite girlfriend (and real true friend) tested as an ISTJ. And we both did the test years ago with the same 'type' outcome. Message: I'm an ENFP (the inspirer) according to the MYERS-BRIGGS TYPE INDICATOR, and my natural partner would be an INFJ (the protector, only 2% in the population breakdown). We were pleasantly surprised when we 'found out' last week. Lucky for you, I believe male INFJs are maybe even more rare than female INTPs. I don't think it's what we want to be more of; I'm perfectly happy with my type.
This was back before internet and I just had little mini personality test I'd found somewhere and she was never interested in taking another vesion of the test. And we both did the test years ago with the same 'type' outcome. I've had enough INFJ women in my life to say INFJs tend to be very caring and kind hearted. I think it's more about who is the best compliment to us but that doesn't mean we want to be more like them.1) I am ENFJ on the full length MBTI test and ESFJ by the one given here.2) I love my type and can't think of anyone I'd more like to be3) My ex didn't take the test but since I've studied a lot about it, I'd say he was ISTP, my complete opposite.4) Don't know5) Yes, more attracted to E's and J's because those are my high numbers so they are more dominant parts of my personality. Wanted to comment on this; like quirky introverts, the quirkier the better.
Introverts draw their energy from within; they must have their "quiet" time or place to think and recharge which is why crowds or overstimulating places might sometimes wear them out.
