Compatibility analysisYou have two type preferences in common, which still guarantees a good deal of similarity in many ways (and therefore a comfortable relationship). On the other hand, you have to handle more or less serious conflicts which usually arise from your differences on the other two preferences. Try to balance the joys and frustrations of your partnership and bear in mind that learning from each other is more helpful than fighting each other!
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!
Your sharing of the third type preference - „feeling“ - helps you experience a strong emotional connection unlike any either of you could have with a thinking partner. Both of you care deeply about each other and bring a high degree of commitment to your relationship. You are both very sensitive and warm, love to help and please each other and appreciate the fact that this works vice versa. Feeling people like you two place a high value on harmony in their relationship and try to avoid anything that might upset their partner (often enough at own cost), so that finding a compromise and reassuring each other is your common top goal. Neither of you will ever miss an opportunity to pay the other a compliment or praise the quality of your partnership!
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.
