Infp men and dating
I'm going to post this topic in both the INFP and INTJ forums.
I'm an INFP woman and recently just started dating an INTJ man.
Turns out we were perfect as friends but way too much alike to be in a relationship.
He was too content to never live a life outside his box of work and home and I need adventure and new experiences but need that person who can get me off my own comfortable couch and lead me in those adventures. I realize and INTJ may not offer that leadership in adventures style either but the thinking function is attractive in that we could have long thought provoking conversations and discuss different ideas and theories. I just also need that validation of their feelings and positive reassurance sometimes too.
Everyone needs to get certain things out of a relationship to feel satisfied.
And if you’re an INFP personality type like me, you probably have a deep need for harmony and emotional connection.
My husband thinks in terms of logic and reason, while I live in a world of feelings, intuition, and personal values.
We discovered that we’re complete opposites—he’s an ESTJ.
But now he understands that’s how I think as an INFP.
Learning that my husband and I processed things differently because of our different personality types was like throwing our marriage a life preserver.
I recently became friends with, and tried to date, an INFJ.
I thought we would be perfect together because we had so much in common.
If it makes us feel good and fits with our personal values, it’s a good decision in our book.2. If we’re watching a sad movie or reading a sad book, we may cry. Trust me, if you empathized with other people’s emotions the way we do, you’d cry too! So, if we keep a birthday card from 15 years ago or that box of stuff from our college days, please try to understand.4.
