Being "different" won't prevent you from getting married.

Unfortunately, it may result in you getting married As you might guess from that particular fact, INTPs can have problems after the honeymoon. found that partners of INTP males had the lowest marital satisfaction of all types.

The Guardians for their part are simply not that satisfied with either Rationals or Idealists, but really go for other Sensors. Keirsey (an INTP himself) speculated that the best match for the INTP is the ENFJ Teacher.

Keirsey (1998) notes that the NTPs do not expend much effort to seek out a partner; it would just require too much time and effort for too little a chance of return.

For this reason some NTPs may simply settle down with the first person who appreciates them, without trying for anything better.

In fact, one study found that they are more likely to get married than almost every single other introverted type (Otis & Louks, 1997).

If you have ever worried about being alone and unloved forever because you are an INTP, you can probably stop now.

ENFJs tend to view their Rational mates as their rock or a pillar of strength, a calm refuge from their sometimes stressful world of emotions. Keirsey suggested that INTPs would be intrigued by the endless mystery presented by the (totally alien, yet extremely attractive) soul of their NF mate--an unsolvable problem to beguil them all their life.

INTPs appreciate the warmth and caring that NFs bring to a relationship.

Nor do INTPs themselves seem satisfied; another study found that INTPs have the fourth lowest satisfaction with their marriage/intimate relationship. (This isn't as bad as it sounds though; Intuitives were generally less satisfied than Sensors, and INTPs were quite close to the midrange values for Intuitive satisfaction.

However, INTPs were the least satisfied of the Rationals.

The author, an INTP herself, was stunned to realize that the only two people she had ever considered as potential matrimonial material (one being a fictional character) were both probable ENFJs.

Perhaps this is merely a coincidence, but it seems worth further investigation.

This equality is in stark contrast to the SP-NT and NT-SP pairing.
