INTJ ESTJ Compatibility
INTJ and ESTJ as a romantic pair are likely to be a little rocky. They both share a very scientific approach to life and they are very methodical and value the importance of preparation. The ESTJ however is probably quicker in making decisions and this is informed by introverted sensing. They rely on past precedents and prefer to follow a by-the-book, paint by numbers approach which obviates the need for extra thinking or outside-the-box ideas. INTJ hold a different view that favors ingenuity and innovation, not just efficiency. As a relationship dynamic, this may not be such an issue except around major events or occasions such as weddings or decisions about how to rear their children. The ESTJ may be more conservative than the INTJ in their views and this could be a source of contention between them.
ESTJ types are proponents of natural hierarchy and authority structure. They believe in rules and upholding them as a code of honor and tradition. The INTJ for their part, respect authority only if they deem it competent and qualified, but they will not tolerate it otherwise. Tradition for tradition’s sake is not what the INTJ is about and they define their own set of values and principles to assess others by. INTJs have their own moral code which may differ from the conventional mores of society. ESTJ are defenders of the norm but they do possess some creative capacity which they fall back only when their extraverted thinking has run it’s course.
INTJ ESTJ Relationship Problems
The ESTJ may have difficulty understanding the INTJ relationship needs for solitude and privacy and may view them as avoidant or selfish. ESTJ are inclined to harbor stereotypes regarding things they do not understand. Their ability to empathize is underdeveloped even more so than the INTJ. Both types are very judgmental and it is likely there will be many recurring disagreements and misunderstandings that make this relationship a challenge.
