Compatibility analysis

You 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.

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!

You have the fourth type preference - „judging“ - in common and therefore share a need to have things
settled, planned and organized. Therefore, you both like to research your options quickly and make
almost instant decisions rather than hanging on endlessly, hesitating and procrastinating. You both
enjoy a neat and tidy home, are responsible about your household chores and never ever miss an
important deadline. As you are both quite goal-oriented, you often help each other accomplish great
things by supporting and encouraging each other within your means. Neither of you values sudden
changes, interruptions or surprises of your daily routine. You can rely on each other in every respect -
and you know and appreciate this very special quality of your relationship.
