The Poet seeks harmony in relationships, but unfortunately, the Creator has made everyone different. Therefore, INFJ compatibility is better with some people and worse with others. The following is an overview of the Poet relationships with all 16 personality types.
What does INFJ value?
The INFJ values time in his life. What matters to him is what has happened in the past. He is interested in history and he thinks about what the future will bring. He appreciates traditions. Proper time planning is essential for him.
Emotions are essential to her life. She is empty without feelings. The INFJ has to experience joy and sorrow, hate and love. She is emotionally intense and she likes to talk about feelings. She did not get her Poet name by chance.
The INFJ has another set of values that are essential to him, but are not as strongly manifested as his other attributes. He likes to talk about these values and desires them in others if they are capable of providing them. INFJ likes power and position. The Poet does not strive for authority himself but he likes hierarchy in society. He likes influential people who can establish their position. The Poet loves beautiful things, beautiful people, and glamour.
The INFJ values laws and regulations, though this area is not his strength. In addition, he seeks logical connections and explanations. He is open about this information.
Common values ensure comfortable relationships
INFJ compatibility is best with people who share his values. He enjoys easy and convenient communication with them. They have shared interests and a similar sense of humor. These people understand her best and do not criticize her weaknesses.
These types are:
There is a good understanding between them and they take pleasure in spending free time together.
ESFP – The Politician can also be included in this group. Although the Politician is not particularly interested in emotions and logical thinking, they are still comfortable with each other. The communication of the INFJ with ESFP is initially exciting and pleasant, but after some time, they do not know what to do next. They both experience this emptiness but typically do not discuss this feeling. For this reason, sometimes they do not dare to create a close relationship because they are afraid to ruin it.
Dual relationship – best for intimacy
The closest relationship in the previous group is with the General – ESTP. This relationship is perfect for marriage. It’s also a good relationship for friendship. There is no complete understanding here between partners, but there is maximum convenience. The partners do not hurt each other and their union makes them feel good about themselves.
The dual relationship does not require much energy to inspire each partner to take action. A small amount of effort is enough for each partner to motivate one another. That is why this relationship is successful.
In neutral relationships, there are no shared values, but there are also no major tensions. The INFJ has neutral compatibility with the following personality types:
The INFJ seems to have a dual relationship with the ENTP at first, but they quickly learn that something is missing from their connection. They share no common values and will lose interest in communication over time.
A relationship with the Mediator is suitable for action, provided that one of the partners recognizes the second as the leader. Otherwise, there will be tension between them.
The relationship with an Analyst may be difficult for the INFJ. This is an unequal relationship. The Poet requires the INTP to show him opportunities in life. However, if the Analyst fulfills this need, then the INFJ will not acknowledge his efforts. In this way, the Poet will lose interest in the Analyst.
INFJ compatibility with a Critic is neutral and the relationship may seem like communicating with a relative. Once they finish the news part of the conversation, neither has anything left to discuss. This relationship is not very interesting for either partner.
This relationship is similar to the INFJ relationship with the Analyst, but with some key differences. The Caretaker desires emotions from the Poet and the Poet will oblige the ISFP. But after some time, the ISFP will lose interest in the INFJ. The Caretaker needs facts and profitable action in this connection, but the Poet is not able to fulfill that need.
The relationship with a humanist is a formal one. Information exchanged by partners does not meet their expectations. The INFP and the INFJ formulate the same idea in different ways. For this reason, they have difficulty understanding one another. To understand one another, they must return to the original conversation after some time.
The relationship with the Advisor only works when they are alone with one another. They are both interested in listening to how other see things. If someone else participates in this conversation, both will look for the mistakes of their partners.
With neutral relationships, it is possible to live and work together. However, partners may feel that something is missing. Then they have to strive for a relationship. Everything does not come as easily for them as it would in a more comfortable relationship.
The Poet has relationships where he faces difficulty maintaining a stable harmony. For these relationships to work, both partners need constant effort and self-control. It is important to understand that success is possible in these tense relationships, but the serious work needed can be too complicated for many people.
The Poet has a tense relationship with the following personality types:
For the Poet, it may be incomprehensible why the relationship with the ESFJ is tense. The problem is that the INFJ begins to impose his worldview. The Enthusiast has a weak intuition for timing. He does not perceive the course of time and cannot evaluate history and traditions. He does not foresee the future. The ESFJ continually listens to the INFJ’s opinion of him, which leads to tension and a possible breakdown of the relationship.
The same situation arises with the Entrepreneur, except in the opposite manner. The INFJ must continuously hear the importance of effectiveness, practical action, and facts from the ENTJ. The Poet will tire of this dynamic and will start to avoid the ENTJ.
The relationship between the Poet and the Administrator is fraught with tension. It is difficult to avoid the conflict here. At the beginning of the relationship, both partners are interesting to each other. They are even attracted. If, however, it is necessary to start collaborating, the behavior of the Administrator confuses the Poet. There is nervousness and irritation, and the relationship becomes difficult. Here, things must be solved with intelligence and rationality. Only then is this relationship possible.
INFJ compatibility with the Master is not good and the relationship can easily lead to conflict. In this regard, it is important that neither partner has an advantage over the other partner. Both the INFJ and the ISTJ are sensitive to this. Each partner must suppress their insults and antipathy with willpower. Unfortunately, there is no other solution.
INFJ compatibility summary
Like all other personality types, the Poet has both comfortable, neutral, and tense relationships. The coziest relationship is the relationship with the ESTP. Relations with ESTJ and ISTJ are the hardest.
In fact, all partnerships are possible, depending on how much we desire the relationship. Relationships between people are continually evolving and we always have to work hard to have good relationships. The advantage of a comfortable relationship is that neither party has to struggle to achieve a quality union.
