The ENFP can open up the INTJs mind to numerous possibilities and angles they may have missed before, and the INTJ can harness the ENFPs ideas and insights and give them a clearer focus along with a plan to make them come to life.
The ENFP can be a constant idea-generator whereas the INTJ can be the one who harnesses the best of those ideas, creates the plan, and together they bring the idea to life.
ENFPs can help broaden their scope and together they can achieve almost anything they set their minds to.
Benefits of the Extroversion/Introversion Difference ENFPs are considered one of the least extroverted extroverts, and for this reason there’s not as big of a contrast with this pairing as there would be with an INTJ and certain other extroverts.
I recently got a reader request for a post about the joys and struggles of ENFPs and INTJs in relationships.
I’m thrilled to research this pairing because they seem to have a natural attraction, but there aren’t many resources out there for them.
A national sample was asked to indicate how important 11 values were in their lives on a scale of “Very important”, “Somewhat Important”, or “Not Important”.
If you look at the cognitive function image, you can see that INTJs use Fi in the tertiary position, only one step down from the ENFPs position.
The same goes for Extraverted Thinking, the ENFP has Te in the tertiary position, only one step down from the INTJs Te. INTJs and ENFPs are going to hit it off and experience a natural spark because they will both live and thrive in the world of ideas, possibilities and meanings.
This means that both ENFPs and INTJs not only perceive the world through intuition, they also have a common feeling and thinking function, although in a separate order.
Where the ENFP will have a higher knowledge and awareness of his/her own emotions and values, the INTJ will have a higher awareness of the logical approach and efficient task completion.
