INFP - INTP Relationship, what do you think about?
What do you think about relationships between INFPs and INTPs? I can't think of a particular pairing that I've seen mentioned more. The focus. However, they'd clash with their dominant Ti (INTP) and Fi (INFP) Like any relationship, I think that communication is key. With Feeling. You know those cliche high school dramas where this shy, artsy girl spends the entire show weeping over her unrequited love for some popular.
And while all of this could feasibly occur if NPs were paired with a J-type, there seems a greater likelihood that NPs will come to communicate more directly through engagement with a J-type than with another P-type. As I have described elsewhere, Si is conservative with respect to money and the material world. On the whole, however, all NPs can find contentment with relatively meager living arrangements. Most, for instance, are quite open to utilizing used furnishings.
As bricoleursthey often enjoy using their Ne to find creative ways to make use of already pre-existing Si goods or materials. Consequently, NPs couples can often enjoy financial compatibility with relatively minimal effort. More than other types, NPs display an affinity for the natural world. They're likely to respect their children's opinions and wishes, and allow their children to have a voice and presence in the family. The INTP parents are likely to be pretty laid-back and flexible with their children, sometimes to the point of being relatively "hands-off" with regards to the day-to-day issues.
INFP and INTP – Compatibility, Relationships, and Friendships
They're likely to count on their spouse for providing structure and schedules. Since the INTP themself does not live in an overly structured or organized manner, they're not likely to expect or create this environment for their children.
If their spouse is not someone with the "J" preference, their children may suffer from a lack of boundaries. This is something the INTP should pay special attention to. Growing children don't know Right from Wrong, and so benefit from having their parents define these boundaries for them.
In spite of their relatively unstructured approach to parenting, INTPs take their role as parent very seriously, and are likely to put forth much effort into doing what they feel will be most effective in helping their children grow into independent, wise adults. INTPs enjoy parenting, and get a lot of fun out of their children. They're also likely to be very proud and loyal parents.
INTPs may have a problem meeting the emotional needs of their children. Although they generally are deeply caring and supportive individuals, the INTP does not always pick up on emotional clues. A troubled child of an unaware INTP parent may have to result to drastic "attention-getting" tactics to get their parent to understand their emotional difficulties.
If you find yourself in this situation, you may find that expressing some of your own emotions will do wonders for your child, yourself, and your relationship.
Although it may not be possible for you to suddenly be "tuned in" on what your children are feeling, at least you can let them know that you care. Children of INTP parents generally remember them respectfully and affectionately as loyal, fair, and tolerant parents, who care for them a great deal, although they don't often show it. Since the INTP loves theories, ideas, and concepts, they are not likely to have much patience or understanding for people with the Sensing preference, who are not usually comfortable with abstract conceptualizing.
Even if they attempt to take care of household, they may still miss important details in its maintenance. The partner that has to be constantly responsible for the everyday maintenance may feel resentment or unfulfilled. A good balance can be achieved with proper delegation of duties or with the hiring of a domestic helper.
