Intp esfj dating
In fact, one study found that they are more likely to get married than almost every single other introverted type (Otis & Louks, 1997).
If you have ever worried about being alone and unloved forever because you are an INTP, you can probably stop now.
ENFJs tend to view their Rational mates as their rock or a pillar of strength, a calm refuge from their sometimes stressful world of emotions. Keirsey suggested that INTPs would be intrigued by the endless mystery presented by the (totally alien, yet extremely attractive) soul of their NF mate--an unsolvable problem to beguil them all their life.
INTPs appreciate the warmth and caring that NFs bring to a relationship.
ENFJs are known for their ability to bring out the hidden gifts and talents in those around them; another naming system calls them the "Givers" because they invest so much time in others.
Keirsey believed that the ENFJs would be intrigued by the chance to bring out the gifts and talents of their INTP mate, and that Idealists in general would form a "cheering section" for them.
This appears to be true--at least from the Rational point of view.
Later on, Myers said that if she had known about type theory, she probably wouldn't have married Chief. There is a lesson to be learned here: type is not everything, nor should it be the decisive factor in choosing your lifemate. Then too, the connections between type, attraction, love and marriage haven't been well studied yet.
(The question is more complicated than you'd think.) You can read about this question and the problems with answering it here. Tieger and Barron-Tieger (2000) found that Rational-Rational pairings have an average satisfaction rate of 59%.
Note also that some NFs were far less satisfied.) According to Marioles et al.'s study, in only about 1/3 of INTP marriages were both partners satisfied.
Also, INTP males were the type/gender combination most likely to be satisfied with their marriage while having a partner who is dissatisfied (this phenomenon did not hold true for INTP females).
