First off I need to add a caveat, I'm a single ENTP so maybe my intentions are to try and swoon one of you INFJs but what's wrong with that. How the ENTP and INFJ are VASTLY different: In a lot of my past relationships, I would force myself to push past my desire for alone time.

It confers a concern for tradition, as well as for the development of behavioral routines and habits. Such relationships can provide ENTPs with what appears to be a fast track to wholeness.

ENTPs, by contrast, are relatively unconcerned with material novelties and niceties, placing higher priority on creative and ideational treasures. Those pairing another NP type e.
With that said, ENP-ENP couples may run into difficulties related to excessive similarity or a deficiency of complementarity. They may find, for instance, that both partners prefer to be talking most of the time, making conversations more competitive or frustrating than nourishing.

We are both walking contradictions, but in different ways.
