INTJ Relationships (With Each Myers Briggs Type)

INTJ ISTJ Compatibility

INTJ and ISTJ can appear very similar from afar. But where the INTJ is interested in forging new paths, the ISTJ would rather follow the footsteps on the beaten path. This is practical but not an exciting way to go for the INTJ who is propelled by discovery and bringing to the fore their powerful vision. ISTJs put safety and pragmatism ahead of innovation and experimentation. While both types value structure and organization, INTJs only use this as a means of efficiency in the application of their ideas. ISTJ look to what has worked in the past and will adhere to it for as long as it continues to do so. INTJs may find this boring and limiting and their sensing/intuitive preference differences may be the source of many disagreements.

Both of the ISTJ and INTJ are low maintenance and their emotional needs will be very modest. In this regard, they will share similar expectations from each other in the relationship. They need only recognition and appreciation from their partners for the most part. These two will likely share an interest in intellectual and even philosophical topics rather than social affairs and gossip. According to a Thoughtcatalog survey, both types voted ‘quality time’ and ‘acts of service’ as their most preferred love languages. This suggests a good deal of concurrence in terms of how these types prefer to give and receive love.

INTJ ISTJ Relationship Problems

Misunderstandings and quarrels may arise due to their intuitive-sensing disparity. The problem may be that the ISTJ is too conservative and unwilling to take the risks that the INTJ is willing to. The ISTJ may not appreciate or understand the INTJ’s vision and so may not see the justification or point of their efforts. The INTJ’s intuitive insights may be difficult for them to explain especially to a sensing type and this can contribute to the frustration and challenges in communication between these two.

      Honestly, being an INTJ is just sad. Especially if you fall “in love” with an ENFP. Because ENFPs are amazing and cuddly. But sometimes they just disappear without telling you and you don’t know what you did wrong(when really you didn’t do anything wrong). They just need to be social.
