The Challenger (ENTP) X The Idealist (INFJ)
Derek: Hi Jo! thank you for sharing us today to your story. Inform us about yourselves.
Jo (INFJ): IвЂ™m a US expat surviving in New Zealand. Used to do a working holiday visa and that is whenever I relocated from Los Angeles to New Zealand for per year. ThatвЂ™s where I came across Steve (ENTP), my partner. WeвЂ™re coming through to 5 years in March.
Derek: sweet! So just how did you two meet?
Jo (INFJ): We really came across at a pub downtown, so when we met I became somebody that is seeing, it had just been a couple weeks. But I types of typed this person as being a Sensor (The вЂњSвЂќ page within the system that is MBTI and knew long haul it absolutely wasnвЂ™t likely to exercise. ItвЂ™s sad, but there is this level connection which was actually lacking. So my boyfriend at that time ended up being here they were kind of chatting us up with me, and Steve (ENTP) and his friend was there, and. I was thinking he had been therefore funny. We had been in a position to connect on absolutely a few things during the evening, because my boyfriend had kept at that time, and Steve (ENTP) and I also had been simply chatting. Steve (ENTP) has this type of great love of life, ENTPs are particularly dry and sarcastic, and I also appreciate that and I also love that. But In addition genuinely believe that because I’d a boyfriend and then he knew that, Steve (ENTP) had been a lot more genuine because we werenвЂ™t striking for each other. We had been simply having a conversation that is deep being forced to consider being in a relationship with each other. It absolutely was actually natural and now we we had been in a position to talk about things we desired to with no the force of like, вЂњOh, do I as if you?вЂќ You know?
Derek: do you realize exactly what your boyfriendвЂ™s that are prior kind ended up being?
Jo (INFJ): Um, no i do believe, now looking straight straight back, he had been an ISFP (The musician), I would personally state. We simply werenвЂ™t linking the real way i want to.
Derek: Appropriate, INFJs (Idealists) particularly crave deep and authentic connection to feel satisfied. It seemed type of strange that your particular boyfriend at that time would leave you at just the club along with other dudes.
Jo (INFJ): Yeah, i believe I go off, whenever IвЂ™m in a relationship, as somebody who is quite devoted, and I also think he previously someplace become. ThatвЂ™s when we stated when Steve (ENTP) and I also simply came across, it absolutely was extremely natural, it wasnвЂ™t a flirtatious first conference, so my boyfriend during the time surely could choose through to that and thus he had been fine and remaining. IвЂ™ve never cheated in my own life, it is simply not a thing that IвЂ™m thinking about.
Derek: Right, i do believe that is additionally pretty typical for INFJs.
Jo (INFJ): i do believe it’s, too, like logically there isn’t any good explanation to when you can finally have a discussion about any of it.
The Dating Stage
Derek: therefore you two eventually end up being together after you and Steve (ENTP) first met at the bar, how did?
Jo (INFJ): That evening we really didnвЂ™t change figures, because we werenвЂ™t for the reason that mode that is flirtatious. But we knew the following morning i truly needed seriously to break it well because of the man I became seeing prior to because I’d gone away and met someone I experienced an entirely different experience of. So, used to do, we broke it well that next early morning. My gf who had been there that night and SteveвЂ™s closest friend exchanged figures so I ended up getting SteveвЂ™s number through my friend, through his friend because they were chatting it up too. We messaged him a couple of days later when I cut things down with all the other man, and Steve (ENTP) had been completely confused, and types of like, shocked. Like he didnвЂ™t recognize that I became form of thinking about him. He thought it had been just a buddy thing since we had this kind of platonic very first evening, and then he knew I experienced somebody. We couldnвЂ™t hook up a times that are few then we had been in a position to get together, and I also told him that we split up. He stated he simply never ever thought a woman just like me would pursue him or such a thing. Therefore I think, being an INFJ, we have a tendency to choose whenever IвЂ™m not chased, I type of donвЂ™t enjoy it whenever theyвЂ™re all up within my company or have a giant ego. Therefore I think just how this whole thing took place, it absolutely was extremely natural and also to my style him a little bit because I was able to chase. And chasing an ENTP is truly hard because theyвЂ™re often all up in your organization.
Derek: Appropriate. ThatвЂ™s really funny. Many people would think an INFJ would rather become chased by the extravert just given that itвЂ™s more content to an introvert.
Jo (INFJ): Appropriate, I think IвЂ™ve been chased a complete lot once I ended up being more youthful, and I also didnвЂ™t have style because of it any longer. I desired a little bit of a challenge, that types of thing. Not everybody is similar to that.
