The MBTI sorts for type and each type has a specific function order. Additionally, every type uses all four types of functions, Intuition, Sensing. Most ENFJs will exhibit the following strengths with regards to relationship issues : Good verbal communication skills; Very perceptive about people's thoughts. To make a guess from a miniature data analysis project: GENERAL: > ENFJ: "I am the way What would the relationship between an ESFJ and an ISTJ be like ?.
However, I feel like I can't peel back any layers and show my intuition. It's like we start speaking a different language; he doesn't get what I'm really trying to say and kind of makes fun of me.

Are these two types ever compatible? It is interesting because he technically has Ne somewhere in there, and Ne goes very well with Ni.

And I have Se, which goes very well with Si or so I've heard. Ever seen this work, or do these types usually go their separate ways? He probably finds you mildly attractive, friendly and stable qualities that I'm sure win ESFJ and others alike. I don't really have those issues with the ENFJs in my life but I think that comes with time and practice.

Because of their love for people and socializing, they are likely to have a large network around them, supporting and mediating for the couple in time of need. Struggles Because both love to speak, not so much listenthey may try to compete for air time when conversing with one another.
So instead of listening, they may out talk each other in order to be heard. Hence, they may not feel fulfilled, especially if one party is always doing the talking and the other doing the listening. One party may turn to outside friends to fill that desire to speak and be heard, and in bad cases, it may lead to extra-marital affair.
Sensing-Intuition Joys Sensors enjoys the insightful and brilliant Intuitive and seeing things from a big picture, strategic perspective relative to theirs. Sensors are also likely fascinated by the outlandish imagination of the Intuitive; with big dreams and visions.
Intuitives will appreciate the Sensors attention to detail in everyday living; Sensors bring Intuitives down to earth to common sense.
While not true for all Sensors, Sensors dress themselves and groom themselves relatively well; this is something that Intuitives will appreciate and admire. Struggles May find it a challenge to have a common topic for discussion; Sensors enjoy talking about everyday happenings while Intuitive enjoys ideas, trends and theories.
These differences in interest may mean the couple may find little or no chemistry. Sensors are more past and present focused while Intuitives tend to be more future oriented; This means that Sensors will take references from past experiences and present facts to make a decision, while Intuitives are more likely to take into account future possibilities when doing so.
Sensors may find Intuitives' lack of interest in everyday living and managing household tasks to be frustrating; they don't understand why Intuitives are always 'in their heads', pondering about the deep things of life while they are the ones taking care of the duties of the household. Feeling-Feeling Both parties are attracted to each other's warmth, sensitivity and kindness to each other's needs.
Both will likely enjoy their expressiveness and natural affection with each other. Both Feeling types tend to recognize and consider their partner's needs and try to meet them.
Hence there is usually high level of harmony in the relationship.
