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!
Your different social needs may create some frustrations in your relationship. While the introverted partner is content to maintain a small group of close friends and likes to spend a lot of time on his own, often lost in his thoughts, the extroverted partner desperately hungers for contact, social interaction and being engaged in a variety of activities. The extroverted may feel frustrated by his partner‘s need to retreat from everyone - even from the one he loves. The introverted, in return, may be overwhelmed by his partner‘s quick and sometimes impatient way of communication. So you both tend to end up in a cat-and-mouse game: the extroverted chasing the introverted, constantly asking questions like „how do you feel?“, „a penny for your thoughts!“ or „do you still love me?“ ... Try to respect these differences rather than to fight them and learn to appreciate your partner‘s special strenghts as a potential completion of yours.
The fact that you have the second preference in common - „sensing“ - makes your relationship a very stable and reliable one. You are both realistic, sensitive people and blessed with great common sense, so you both pay close attention to details and know that being in seventh heaven may be part, but never base of a relationship. Adaptable, down-to-earth and pragmatic as you both are you handle day-to-day‘s matters without further ado, take good care of each other and try to nurture and please each other wherever you can. As your sensory perception is much stronger and more sensitive than the one of intuitive types, you both appreciate a home full of warmth, comfort and style where you can relax and spend good times together. Relationships between two sensing types are also often characterized by a strong sexiness and eroticism.
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!
„Casual, flexible and easygoing - that‘s the lifestyle you both prefer. As you both share the fourth type preference - „perceiving“ -, you are freedom-loving and both are happiest when you can respond to the moment rather than plan ahead. Neither of you is especially concerned about structure or driven to make decisions, on the contrary you both prefer to pursue whatever piques your curiosity - and drop it the moment it becomes familiar or routine. Impulsive by nature, you appreciate each other‘s penchant for spontaneity and talent to improvise. Due to your common dislike of household chores and day-to-day necessities as well as your tendency to procrastinate, your life may sometimes become a bit chaotic and more than one project may be left half-finished - but who cares?
