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 are both conscientious and serious people who like to spend a lot of time alone. Your need for privacy, rest and silence is crucial to keep your energy level. Talkative people, never ending conversations and big social events are torture for both of you. You rather prefer a nice, intimate evening alone with your partner or few close friends. Sometimes you even have to withdraw yourself from the one you love, but this is no source of frustration in your quiet, stable relationship as you respect and understand each other‘s wish for retreat - you know that the emotional connection between you is deep and reliable anyway.
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!
As you share the third type preference - „thinking“ - you both favor decisions that are made in a logical and objective way. Neither of you is easily offended, so you may speak your minds honestly and can usually receive constructive criticism in the spirit in which it is intended. No need to „walk on eggs“ to avoid hurting each others‘ feelings! On the contrary, both of you enjoy good-natured teasing and neither of you takes it personally, you even like the sometimes competitive aspect of your relationship. If necessary, both of you are able to make tough decisions, and unless you are very stressed, you both tend to remain calm, unemotional and objective even during heated and stimulated discussions - a great base for a respectful and enduring relationship as conflicts can be solved in a very solution oriented way.
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.
