Default Hypothetical question

Lets say two people know their types, know about compatibility issues and are not compatible according to the theory but feel some attraction towards each other.

Would they:

1. Even consider getting together knowing the implications.
2. Manage to co-exist peacefully because of knowing the implications.

I know I said this somewhere else, but I'll say it again.
My mother is one of the most wonderful people I know, and she and I are conflicting types: she's ESFJ and I'm INTP. We have always gotten along and have learned to understand one another. I can safely say she is the closest friend I have. Obviously it is possible to exist in peace with someone who may hold a very different perspective, without having that relationship crumble.
Not to say romance is the same as relations with family or friends, but it does serve I think as a model. As far as I'm concerned knowing the difficulties is an advantage. Respect and open-mindedness is the key to any relationship.

I think it depends upon how much stress and maintenance you are willing to endure in a relationship.

So let me summarise it Nyx. You get along famously with an ESFj, can't stand INTps and ESFps, from "INTj or INTp" description you relate more to an INTj and you think your type is INTp. Did I miss anything?

...the fact that I have consistently tested INxP for 7 years, no matter how I try consciously to test otherwise?

But if you both aware of the problem, do you think the stress and conflicts could be avoided?

Have you got STA results saved anywhere? And your pic would be nice.

I would appreciate if you take the test as well, it's kinda important too.

Sure, but wouldn't that be a bit superflous, given that I already have an idea of what my type is and it might influence the results?

I don't expect to see a miracle. You told me about it so it should be fine. Besides the test produces much more raw data for analysis than it is actually displayed to the user.

You should try the STA test, but if you want you can also take the functional analysis test found at socion.info to help you gauge where you stand on a function by function basis.

http://socion.info/cgi-bin/index.cgi?loc=test

I should warn you, though ... expect to spend more than half an hour on each test!

I will also take the functional analysis test when I am able.

Is the pic still necessary?

Sorry you had to complete the test, I could have told you after you've done the normal mode not to bother. It took you 3 minutes and 14 seconds to come up with a perfect INTp score in the normal mode. Basically you already know too much and can manipulate the result of any test. So that goes out of the window.

Now the pic or better several preferably having your mum on it too.

I'm definately a believer that you can have a good relationship with any other type if both people are aware that the other person appears annoying or difficult because they see the world much differently. Both people involved must have empathy and a willingness to respect why the other person believes and acts the way they do. Unfortunately, way too many people out there assume that their way is the only way and anyone who thinks or acts differently is a fool and not worthy to be a member of society. Being an INFp, I can certainly attest that I've given up trying to defend myself to others. I love leaving things alone for the most part and don't like imposing myself on nature or others anymore than is necessary. I'm a fruitcake dreamer that can spend long hours alone without much stimulation from the outside environment and I love doing things others view as frivolous, unproductive, and impractical. ESTJs have a hard time with me and me with them. I do think I could get along with an open minded ESTJ, but it would probably take so much energy that such relationships would probably be best left as casual and intermittent instead of intense and intimate.
