These frictions, once you see them, will be very easy to understand. When two people don't match up on these points (such as when two different types attract), the best possible outcome is that you meet in the middle.
I know it sounds great, but really think about what that means.
Each person will only get half of what he or she wants at best. You will not getting everything you want and dream of in the way of alignment.
I like to keep bathrooms and sinks clean and neat, and my wife is in the process of establishing order in 2 of our 3 bedrooms (one to be a true bedroom, the other a true library). P stands for Perceiving and J stands for Judging and indicates whether the Perceiving function (either (S)ensing or i(N)tuition) or Judging functions (either (T)hinking or (F)eeling) are Extroverted. Ther are probably many zillions of websites which give a basic outline of the Myers-Briggs types: here's a random one from a British management site.#6 I am basically INTP and identify totally with chainedwind's comment. My hubby and I are both J's, but he's a more extreme J, whereas I'm more "reasonable" ;-)For example, if we're going to do something in the evening, he likes to plan it out to the minute.
Who knows why Brad Pitt chose Angelina Jolie over Jennifer Aniston or why Helena Bonham-Carter prefers to live in a separate house to her long-term partner Tim Burton?

Relationships with The Two Opposite Extravert and Introvert personality Types Interestingly enough, when a couple is made up of an Introvert and an Extravert, the idea of opposites attracting is far truer than would be expected, with each side balancing out the other, and the differing personalities finding enjoyable qualities in their partner’s opposite personalities.
For example, Extraverts will often be drawn to the relaxed and nonchalant attitude of their Introverted counterparts, finding them mysterious in their ways of being not upfront about relationship issues right away.
