Here are the top romantic matches for the INFP personality type:

  • INFP with INTP
  • INFP with INFP

INFP with INTP

INFPs seek profound, deeper connections in their relationships because they are Intuitive Feeling personalities. They want to know what motivates the people they care about and how they might facilitate them in becoming their best versions. 

They are attracted to people who appear vulnerable, caring, and idealistic, and seek partners who allow them to grow and evolve.

INTPs, being Intuitive Thinking types, will be searching for mental connections first and above all else. 

Once they have a common understanding, NT types will feel closer to INFP, especially if they are able to have a debate that allows them to discover new things or think about things from a different perspective.

INFPs are inspired by morality, whereas INTPs are influenced by rationality. Even though they both enjoy evaluating, INFPs are more focused on morals and principles. INTPs, on the other side, tend to think things through critically.

Regardless of the fact that you are both introverts, one of you may require more alone time than the other, and you may possess diverse social requirements. 

Synchronising your calendars and finding a balance between your individual needs is a delicate balancing act but it may be a wise decision. Communication is essential, but can be difficult since you both avoid conflict because it is overstimulating. Recognize when you’re stifling your feelings.

Making a concerted effort to engage in conversations that push you both out of your personal bubble

INFP with INFP

This partnership has a huge amount of potential for evolving into a meaningful and loving relationship. Many similarities in how they look at things and handle your life are likely to pop up. 

Both have a caring and individualistic nature, and even if they differ on some issues, they will still feel like they are on the same side when it comes to the serious things.

You both demonstrate a passion for your values and for supporting others. Despite the fact that you may pursue separate paths, your main objective is very much the same: making the world a better place. This common mentality allows you to form a strong and enduring relationship.

This couple most likely enjoys a slower pace of life and recognizes the value of rest time to balance out the chaos. Neither of them seem to have a deep desire to go to party after party, and it’s evident that they’re on the same page when it comes to scheduling each other’s social calendars.

INFP with INFJ 

You’re going to find each other fascinating and inspiring to engage in conversation with. Since neither of them is specifically interested in recounting events in boring detail or exchanging dull facts lacking context, but also because you’ve probably both been stuck in such tedious conversations with others, interacting with one another should be a pleasant change.

Confrontation between these two is especially difficult to happen  because they both cherish harmonious relationships, so any rift will be nightmarish for them. Fortunately, they both have compassion that many people only dream of, and both have a knack for coming up with creative remedies to personal struggles. They yearn for intimacy and connectedness deep down which they might even be able to give each other.

INFP with ENFP

This person is likely to be more energetic than you, and you may find their excitement to be excessive at times. Setting limits and letting them know whenever you need room and peace may be necessary.

Since they share core values, they are going to feel a close bond between each other. They are both altruistic, humanitarian people who are concerned genuinely about everyone. None of them are comfortable with merely accepting the world’s atrocities and brutalities; they are profoundly impacted by those and will want to create a better, kinder world.

It’s critical for them to convey their needs since INFP and ENFP have different levels of tolerance for stimulation and social engagements. INFP need frequent periods of solitude to recharge their batteries because they are rejuvenated by alone time. ENFJ, on the other hand, thrives on action and most probably will have plenty of space and time for friends, family, and social occasions.

  • INFP with ISTJ
  • INFP with ESTP
  • INFP with ESTJ
  • INFP with ESFJ

When it comes to what they cherish, the INFP and ISTJ are unlikely to share much in common. Although they may have some spiritual, political, or other associations in general, their viewpoints on the world and what should be significant are substantially different. When they concur on morality and principles, it will most likely be for very separate reasons.

Notice how three of them are Extroverted Sensing, this is because these types value sensory experiences and their only goal is living in the moment or enjoying the moment. When it comes to these individuals, fun tops their agenda and they do not care too much about connecting on a deeper level because all they care about is having a companion, to enjoy this roller coaster ride, called life with.

INFPs have rich inner lives andare imaginative and idealistic so they also spend a lot of time in their heads but these extroverted types believe in getting out there and being part of the action and enjoying the world just as it is unlike the INFP, who are always looking for ways to change the world for the better.
