Kevin’s hot topics on Quora are history, free market economics, philosophy, and Myers Briggs typology, and many others. The following is one of his recent answers to the question in the title.
Generally, I get along best with INFJs and ENFPs. Both tend to “get” the way INTJs are and make them pleasant to engage with.
The INFJ tends to enjoy listening to the INTJ and the INTJ loves feeling heard. Often, the INFJ catches threads in the conversation that the ever analytical INTJ doesn’t always see because they are too close to the subject. Recently I had coffee with an INFJ friend of mine and in no time I had come up with 3 (serious) innovations to make my business better. The thing that was interesting is that she didn’t offer much in terms of ideas, but asked questions that led to solutions. I absolutely love that. I dominated the conversation and at the end apologized. She was very glad to play the role of the listener. She said, “are you kidding, I love that kind of conversation with an INTJ.” It was lots of fun.
Because they are both Introverts, the INTJs and INFJs sense of intuitiveness is very internal and very strong, but they get such from different places (thinking vs. feeling). Therefore, both enjoy seeing how one letter plays such a profound difference in one’s personality. I think a conversation between an INTJ and INFJ would be described by both as an “intellectual playground.”
Meanwhile, I find the ENFP to be incredibly fun. I love their approach to extroversion because, if they are not getting enough attention from me, their P tells them that is fine and they happily find it elsewhere. Meanwhile, because they are Ns and Ps they enjoy the way INTJs approach things. INTJs propensity to bring so many perspectives to a conversation and to extrapolate the possibilities, make them a great deal of fun to the ever open minded ENFP. I would love more ENFP friends. I have only identified a couple. I walk away thinking they really appreciated the time together, which I feel the same too, as a result.
Finally, I do want to mention… (read more and while there, see other posts by Kevin and follow him on Quora).
