Compatibility analysisAs you two share only one of the four type preferences, you face some real challenges in your daily lives. You often have to deal with miscommunication, different values or needs and sometimes really struggle to find an agreement you both can accept. Nevertheless, opposites attract - if you both try to be particularly respectful and tolerant rather than fighting your differences you‘ll lead an exciting and animated relationship.
You both wear your hearts on your tongues, so you never risk to end up in bored or angry silence - your mutual desire to talk about things helps you stay connected. Friendly, openminded and helpful, you try to support each other wherever you can as you are naturally aware of each other‘s needs and wishes. You are both outgoing, know a lot of people and enjoy social events, either as hosts or guests. Active and full of energy, you like being involved in many projects at the same time. These similar social needs are the base for a vibrant and intense relationship full of common interests!
While the „sensing“ partner of you is good at paying close attention to the present and seeing clearly what needs to be done right now, the „intuitive“ partner ist good at anticipating future and developing plans and visions. This difference is a source of conflict between you two, als the more realistic and practical sensing partner sometimes is lacking interest in the intuitive one‘s more abstract and future-oriented ideas. In return, the theoretical and more global thinking intuitive partner often neglects the down-to-earth activities and interests of the sensing one. Make sure to encourage each other to pursue your own interests, but always take time as well to listen to and to support each other. If not, you‘ll run the risk that the intuitive of you feels overburdened and slowed by unnecessary specifics while the sensing one has trouble and feels stressed in following the intuitive through dreaming up new schemes. Help each other grow and develop new strenghts instead!
The conflicts you two have to deal with usually stem from your difference regarding the third type preference: The „thinking“ partner often is uncomfortable and even impatient when dealing with emotions, so he inadvertently hurts his partner‘s feelings - not really seldom, as „feeling“ types tend to take anything very personally anyway and are unable to take things with a pinch of salt. In return, the emotional outbursts of the feeling partner are a real challenge to thinking types, as well as his tendency to base his decisions on how he feels about an issue rather than on objective and locigal observations. This difference may be a considerable problem for a relationship and requires a lot of tolerance and will to compromise on both sides: The feeling partner has to learn not to be offended so quickly and stand a debate while the thinking partner‘s job is not to dismiss his partner‘s feelings as insiginificant or overreactions. Try to see this difference as complementary strenghts rather than faults in character!
The difference between you regarding the fourth type preference is the source of probably most of your day-to-day conflicts. While the „judging“ one has a strong need for order, in-time management of things and accountability, the „perceiving“ one doesn‘t give a damn about clutter on the kitchen counter, overdue bills or the piles of cloth in the bedroom. This can cause constant frustration on both sides: the judging one feels irritated by the way the perceiving one makes promises he can‘t keep, leaves projects half-finished and constantly messes up rooms and plans. In return, the perceiving one often feels critized and nagged about details he sees as irrelevant or silly and sometimes resists plans and organization simply to fight the idea of being stuck in a cage. Try to find a compromise to reduce the annoying little fights and debates resulting from this difference: meet halfway between the spontaneous chaos of the perceiving and the strict order of the judging one and keep in mind that none of you wants to offend the other deliberately by his behaviour.
