The same thing goes for the INTJs as the INFJs: you need someone who intellectually captures your attention, is capable of discussing new concepts, ideas, and ways of envisioning the future, and is not particularly sensor-oriented. In other words, you need another Intuitive.
It can work with any intuitive, but you’ll run into problem AND positive points with all of them:
Another NTJ: this might work really well, but only if you’re willing to compromise and share the same sort of vision. If your goals are pulling you apart, neither of you are likely to budge. There might also be some “alpha” fighting going on, if both of you have dominant personalities, BUT you will be amazed at how well you understand one another’s mindset. You’d also benefit from the “silent bond” that comes with Fi, but neither of you would soften the other, nor have any insight into outsider’s emotions and how they influence decisions.
An NFJ: this can work for the same reason that an INTJ can work, in the sense of understanding one another’s mental processing and being able to describe how you reached your conclusions in a language the other person can also comprehend; again, you need to have similar priorities and goals for this to work. The NFJ will have greater insights into other people and their feelings, as well as what they may do, which will be useful to you in terms of getting along and understanding others. Their Fe will be more centered on harmonizing, while your Te will be about getting things done; but you may have an emotional gap at times, if you can’t learn to communicate affections in ways the other person understands (Fe needs to give Fi space, and accept that silence is not always bad; Fi must learn to affirm and give encouragement).
An NTP: this may or may not work, depending on the two individuals involved. The INTJ might find the NTP too open-minded and “lazy” whereas the NTP might see the NTJ as too rigid, inflexible, or blunt (remember, ENTPs use fairly high Fe, so they usually curb their bluntness so as not to offend, and INTJs don’t have access to that social filter). On the other hand, having none of the same functions can generate interesting new concepts, novel ideas, and theoretical discussions; the ENTP can give access into others’ feelings and read the emotional tone of the room (Ne-Fe), while the INTJ can take their collective ideas and figure out how to put them into motion, bring them into reality (Ni-Te).
An NFP: supposedly, the best natural partner for the INTJ is the ENFP, because their extroversion (but not to extremes) will help the INTJ become more social, while the INTJ’s Te can go a long way toward strengthening their tertiary Te. As abstract, intuitive personalities, they will be able to communicate with one another and share an interest in the same thing: ideas and information. NFP’s Ne will present the INTJ with novel concepts and greater insight into the environment, while connecting through “silent bonding” (mutual understanding and respect of one another’s more withdrawn but strong emotions). There might be some conflict over “bluntness” at times, but they’re compatible enough it is likely to work.
Sensor-Intuitive relationships can work too, but I suspect the more successful ones have functions in common (Se-sensors, as opposed to Si-sensors, whose routine, tendency to stick to tradition, and interest in the past might conflict and rub on an INTJ’s futuristic approach; Si-sensors are better paired with Ne-Si users).
hehe sorry. This just reminds me of me and my INTJ
