INTJ ISFP Compatibility
INTJ and ISFP compatibility is potentially good provided they can get over some of the communication hurdles that stand in their way. These two types share all the same functions but in different order. ISFPs first and foremost assess things in terms of what feels right to them and aligns with their individual set of values. INTJs will likely appreciate the ISFP’s independent and unique spirit. They are also spontaneous and fun to be around and it is likely that they are musical or artistic as well. INTJ likes this about the ISFP who themselves have an appreciation for the arts and creative endeavors in general.
These two may have differences in their style of communication that may contribute to misunderstandings in the relationship. ISFP are more interested in sensation and experiences whereas the INTJ is more interested in developing systems and accomplishing things. They are purpose driven and they may not be on board with the ISFP’s unstructured lifestyle. INTJ may also appreciate the depth of feeling ISFPs have which may make up for the shallowness of intellectualism. ISFPs can read and pick up on what the INTJ feels in an uncanny way and they can get them to express it and let off some steam. The INTJ provides counsel and practical solutions for the ISFP that they may find useful.
ISFPs can be a little self-indulgent with a penchant for being self-centered and wallowing in their own pity. They can be melodramatic and the INTJ may feel that sometimes the ISFP is more interested in feeling sorry for themselves than actually trying to do something about them. The affection INTJ receives from them and the opportunity to engage their feeling function is probably what makes this an interesting relationship for them.
INTJ ISFP Relationship Problems
INTJ may find the ISFP to sometimes be too unreliable and inconsistent. ISFPs are not keen on adhering to strict plans and commitments and what not. They feel bound and restricted by them and they have the potential to change their minds at the last moment without warning. The INTJ may also feel that the ISFP doesn’t take enough effective action on their goals and may spend too much time having fun which might make the INTJ jealous on some level. The ISFP may feel that the INTJ misses out on a lot of what life has to offer and that they take themselves a little too seriously at times.
