ENFP potential partner

ENFP and ENTJ

This pairing can be quite effective if both partners have developed their inferior functions. If the ENFP is comfortable using their extroverted thinking and the ENTJ is comfortable using their introverted intuition (their auxiliary function, which balances out the ENFP’s extroverted intuition), the two can find a great deal of common ground. Both types are extroverted go-getters who enjoy examining abstract concepts and putting their ideas into action.

Strengths of this pairing: Both types are interested in the viewpoints of others, and will likely enjoy analyzing each other’s differing perspectives on various topics. At best, the ENFP will find the structured, down-to-earth attitude of the ENTJ grounding and the ENTJ will find the spontaneous, enthusiastic nature of the ENFP refreshing. In many ways they will balance one another out, and will likely challenge one another to develop their inferior functions. As an added bonus, both types are highly enthusiastic and inventive when it comes to intimacy. The sexual chemistry is usually on point.

Potential pitfalls of this pairing: If the ENFP has poorly developed extroverted thinking, the ENTJ may view them as scattered, overly theoretical and too emotional for their own good. If the ENTJ has poorly developed extroverted sensing and introverted feeling, the ENFP may view them as cold, controlling and overly rigid.

Verdict: This can be a highly satisfying relationship for both partners, particularly if they are open to developing their inferior functions. Definitely worth a shot. With two mature partners, this pairing has serious long-term potential.
