Dating tips for each #MBTI type #INFJ #INFP #ENFJ #ENFP #. Find out what kind of dating style you have, dependent on your Myers-Briggs personality type. INFJ: You're willing to wait for someone who “gets” you. ENFP: You chase anyone who's a little bit of a human puzzle.
It's not something the western world promotes, but the eastern world gets it. Si has to do with understanding the physical processes within. You can do this through meditation, chakra balancing, praying, etc.
Try spending time by yourself for 30 minutes and going through each part of your body and asking how it feels. Do this until the storm of intuition in your mind stops talking both through your mouth and brain.
If an ENFP refuses to take care of their Fi and Si for things they consider more fun, those qualities will stab them in the back. Their Ne allows them to understand different points of view, and their Fi gives them a strong capacity for empathy. They're known for being open-minded and enthusiastic novelty-seekers. More than anything, ENFPs fear boredom and stagnation. With extroverted intuition guiding them, they can see how things fit in at an advanced, macrocosmic level.
You may drive an ENFP crazy with too many details and structure when what they really crave is openness, both in ideas and in their lifestyle. Though they're skilled at looking at the big picture, ENFPs can also go all the way to the bottom with introverted sensing, where they must ask questions of their body, how it feels, why it feels the way it does. The more ENFPs can force themselves to better understand this, the more they'll grow and appreciate everything. This can lead to anxiety, restlessness, and trouble sleeping.
The ENFP is the champion and always wants to involve people, spread ideas, and get things in motion. But they have a more introspective side that they don't always know how to convey or whether they should convey it at all.
They love deep conversations, which engage their Fe and Ni functions, and they're deeply concerned with quality and authenticity in all they do. They love learning about what's in this world, questioning what's out there and how they can apply it their value system, and testing the waters to see what resonates with them spiritually.
Struggles of an INFJ The INFJ wants to be understood and needs help coming out of their shell because they are the rarest personality type, making them feel constantly like their ideas and feelings don't fit in with the rest of the way the group feels.
INFJs often feel unheard and misunderstood by those around them, which can cause them to question their value in a world that appears indifferent to their insights. This, in turn, makes them more prone to depression than many other personality types. The INFJ also struggles with being quiet because their dominant function is introverted intuition—their first objective is to process information introspectively.
Until this hits their emotional center and they can translate the information empathetically, they tend to keep it to themselves. Both are obsessed with people and gathering information about people because they're in the NF temperament.
Both of these personalities have unique social skills because the INFJ is the most social introvert and the ENFP is hyper social, but also in need of chill, quiet space. They both have tendencies to be hippies. They want to play and create in the world, not be tied down to paying bills. These personalities need careers that make their passions shine, not necessarily their bank accounts. If they have the immediate things taken care of in their physical surroundings, they're happy campers.
They need their fill when it comes to imagination and fantasy. I suggest that they live in a space that doesn't require a lot of belongings, because less is more for them—and will keep them from going bankrupt. Friendships Between INFJs and ENFPs Thanks to the complementary nature of their personalities, even if things don't work out romantically between these types, they're likely to remain close friends.
The intellectual satisfaction that accompanies their interactions creates a deep bond between the two, and they truly bring out the best in each other.
Whether you're looking at this relationship from the outside or you're half of the pair, here are some quick ways to tell it's an INFJ-ENFP connection. On the entirely other end of the spectrum, many ENFPs have a difficult time staying focused and following things through to completion.
If they have not focused on their ability to follow through, they may have problems staying in dedicated, monogamous relationships. They are so in tune with all of the exciting possibilities of what could be, that they will always fantasize about a greener pasture out there somewhere.
If they are not paired with a partner who enjoys new experiences, or who shares their idealistic enthusiasm, the ENFP may become bored. The ENFP who is bored and who is not focused will be very unhappy, and will eventually "leave" the relationship if the problem is not addressed. Since relationships are central to the ENFP's life, they will be very "hands on" and involved with their intimate relationships.
They may be in the habit of constantly asking their partner how they're doing, what they're feeling, etc. This behavior may be a bit smothering, but it also supports a strong awareness of the health or illness of the relationship.

- Why the ENFP and INFJ Are Perfect for Each Other
Their rich fantasy world makes them fun and creative lovers, who usually have new ideas up their sleeves. They whole-heartedly embrace the opportunity for closeness with their mates, believing sexual intimacy to be a positive, fun way to express how much you love each other.
The ENFP needs to be given positive assurance and affirmation. More than one ENFP has been known to "go fishing" for compliments.
They like to hear from their significant others that they are loved and valued, and are willing and eager to return the favor. They enjoy lavishing love and affection on their mates, and are creative and energetic in their efforts to please. The ENFP gets a lot of their personal satisfaction from observing the happiness of others, and so is generally determined to please and serve their partners.
A problem area for ENFPs in relationships is their dislike of conflict and sensitivity to criticism. They are perfectionists who believe that any form of criticism is a stab at their character, which is very difficult for them to take. Conflict situations are sources of extreme stress to the ENFP. They have a tendency to brush issues under the rug rather than confront them head-on, if there is likely to be a conflict.
They are also prone to "give in" easily in conflict situations, just to end the conflict. They might agree to something which goes against their values just to end the uncomfortable situation. In such cases, the problem is extended and will return at a later time. The ENFP needs to realize that conflict situations are not the end of the world. They are entirely normal, and can be quite helpful for the growth of a relationship.
It will hurt us if you make the insinuation that we are. Accept the fact that your world has collided with someone who absolutely loves people and shows genuine interest in just about everyone. But also know that our loyalties run deep, and if we have chosen you, we will invest in you fully. ENFPs are very much all or nothing types. And lots of them.
It will take us quite a bit of time and some gentle prodding to actually open up to you. This is probably one of the most surprising things about ENFPs. While we come off as being incredibly warm and open, we can actually be very private. We rarely share personal things about ourselves with others. This is a juxtaposition of sorts, because what we crave most are meaningful conversations and interactions. The clincher is that while we want to know ALL about you, we will often hold back in sharing much about who we are and what we need from the people we do life with.
There is a lot going on in my heart and mind on an ongoing basis that I might never feel that I am able to process externally with someone I love, unless they ask the right questions. There are very very few people who know me deeply, and those who do have really taken the time to invest in me.
If you take any time to observe an ENFP, you will notice that they are usually focused on other people. Love us through the layers. Ask open ended questions to encourage us to dive deeper with you. ENFPs are external processors. What this means for the people who share space with us is that we are often coming to revelations about things while we are speaking.
Some of the people I have felt the safest with in life have been those that I can sit beside and think out loud with. It is one of the ways we make sense of life and having someone willing and unassuming enough to help us by listening to us process is gold.
Verbal praise is everything. We are over-analyzers and we know that we have big personalities. Human connection is something ENFPs thrive off of and it is something we not only crave, but something we need to feel balanced. We need to know that you see us and appreciate us. ENFPs are people who need verbal praise often, especially from the people we care about. We need to know where we stand with you.
This is a difficult one to write about without seeming really needy. This is an area where we have the potential to feel the most loved, if your comments are sincere. I guess the best way to love us in this respect is to be cognizant of the fact that this really is a consistent need of ours. Be specific in your praise and tell us when we do something that makes you grateful or proud. Go with the flow. An ENFP friend of mine recently got out of a long relationship where the deal breaker was the difference in which she and her partner approached the speed of life.
He was too regimented and she was too free and they had a tough time meeting in the middle.
ENFPs go with the flow of life. We like not knowing where a day might lead us or what adventures we might find along the way.
Keep us on our toes. Be willing to go into a weekend or a vacation without having a schedule and surprise us by your willingness to seek out new experiences with us. Some of this probably stems from the steadiness we find in those types.
ENFPs have a tendency to be all over the place, but once you really learn our patterns, we are actually very predictable. Still, we are idea people who often have our heads stuck in the clouds.
