Hey, I'm sure this has been discussed a thousand times over but I'm new here, humor me ? Plus this stuff is always interesting.
I've read that xNTx are good matches for INTP, what do you think?
My last relationship was with an ENTJ and it was a nice compliment, except for a few glaring issues. I always felt that he wanted me to be myself, but he wanted that to be exactly what he had in mind. Having someone who stood his ground was nice because it let me know what I disagreed with and generally made me feel alive, but it eventually became stifling. I also think that I made him nervous because he suspected that part of me was unreachable. BTW, we broke up because of his religion and he turned out to be a dick, but that's not really related. The guy I fell for before that was ENTP, and really a comedic genius, but I feel like we were both looking for too much direction from the other. Plus as an entertainer, he wasn't getting enough satisfaction from my reactions. He told someone that it was like I was "thinking on another level" which made me feel alienated; I obviously related to him more than the other way around
I was wondering whether girls in general like the dominating personalities, or whether INTPs like it because it gives them direction (or both). I also know about myself that I like relationships that challenge me, or have some kind of friction (not saying this is healthy). Is this typical for INTP? I've been curious about this; please let me know if I'm posting in the wrong place.
