She has a deep love for animals and children, especially her crazy German shepherd, Penny, and her sweet, fierce two-year-old niece, Penelope. This Myers-Briggs personality is defined as primarily being introverted, intuitive, feeling, and perceiving, although this description really only scratches the surface of this character. Anyway, thanks for your post. For example, one can both absorb emotional energy, which is for me a very visceral experience that I feel physically in proximity, while also being able to mirror emotions of artists and those who are distant, play out, examine, and seek to understand them. We see both sides of the coin. Hey thanks for writing this very accurate article! It feels like our minds are connected in some very very deep level. In addition, both value peace and harmony and are unlikely to discuss their issues.
Going deeper, and the two probably came to the same conclusion in wildly different ways, too. They can be very sensitive, but often keep negative reactions to themselves because they are reluctant to engage in confrontation. I seem to be in a multiple year cycle. It's interesting why people don't talk about their differences and problems in relationships that often. After a week alone mulling over theories, they both may cast aside their books and go skydiving or rock climbing.
They further love how we can offer objective, rational advice which seems to lift them out of their emotional malaise. Both cares genuinely, just different method. Which I guess is true to a degree. Did your intuition tell you that it was the right connection? Also, remember that there is a spectrum for each set of traits. They both enjoy art and movies. Can two people with such opposite personalities be such good friends? On the negative side, they have different communication styles.
If your character falls into this category then you may be struggling or have struggled in the past to find a partner who really catches your attention. They both energize themselves by drawing inwards and exploring their inner thoughts and ideas. Its admittedly a first impression, but my first impressions, with more time and thought, usually prove to have at least a some validity. I don't think he realises what a special, amazing person he is. We both love serious, thought-provoking films and studying psychology. We sometimes create cycles with each other, where for example she will feel stressed, I will mirror stress, she will absorb my stress, etc. The worst thing you could do would be to try engaging with them while they are in this state.
Each will always look out for the other and will have lesser misunderstandings than people of other personality types, as they will strive to resolve conflicts or differences in the most harmonious way possible. We can learn from each other and grow together. My husband has always been able to call me out on not revealing nearly as much as I profess to about myself — I usually open up readily about myself in order to connect with others. You will have to adapt to their frequent emotionalism but you will benefit from their ability to listen to you and properly understand you. What do we do about this misunderstanding? So the odds of finding something deep are, at least it seems to me, very low. The area where this relationship match is likely to break down is in the domain of emotions and feelings.
If you have trouble getting your significant other to open up, consider asking if he or she would be willing to write letters or create a journal to which you are granted access. She gets me, and I get her, and we are two kindred spirits trying to grapple with the extroverted crazy world designed by dominant sociopaths who try to force us all to be just as they are. In a relationship, this persona will be looking for inspiration, stimulation, and passion. The issue here is neither of us have some kind of monopoly on empathy the other lacks, but we express it differently. I am an enfp male married to an infj female.
Stagnation breaks their heart and puts them in a cage. The conversation thing is very accurate. I am an infp and i reference your article to help friends figure out if they are infj or Infp all the time. This paring is not perfect by any means, but it's at least possible that it can work. I was under the false pre-tense that I was energised and motivated by being around people. While both of these processes are good, and both are technically in the thinking realm, they both tend to clash with each other a little bit.
In addition to this, you will also need to throw your own effort into trying new things, suggesting new activities, bringing home an occasional surprise, and also picking up the slack in everyday activities that are too mundane for your partner to complete all the time. They are great listeners and make good communicators. Their main problem is their different energy level. I am often telling her to give someone a break, or taking the side of an underdog, but then we switch roles and then she is telling me to ease up on someone. Her personality feels like a brightly glowing ember in the dark; giving warmth and light.
I would pursue it, if I were you. I give her back my calmness and reciprocal excitement too; I can tell that she enjoys the excitement in me and the fact that I can give her the same intensity that she is giving me. They usually have very upbeat and positive attitudes, especially when engaging in activities they love. However, I find the infp vs infj issue distressing. And so as I've been striving to understand our human experience, and different ways to navigate our time here on this planet, I've found understanding on a deeper level than I had before, of the role of relationship in this human experience with one another. They are perfectionists and strive to perform in the best way they can, and shun the limelight at the same time.
The work of the Markrams is bearing this out. In times like this you will need to be the kind but truthful voice of reason, especially in a serious situation where your partner is completely failing to see logic. This often includes caring for individuals or animals who have been victims of injustice or misfortune and are therefore incapable of helping themselves. Looking back at my childhood however, I have always been quite happy being alone reading and daydreaming. There is a saying that the more personal something is the more universal it is. They will probably enjoy indulging in silly romantic games and role playing scenarios. I really couldn't nail it down until I understood the function stack.
