Spending time in socionics and mbti forums starts to make relationships sound formulaic, or like trying to piece together a jigsaw puzzle. Go on a date, if it seems like its gonna be too much work, they're not your "type."
My EII friend, married to an IEE, told me, "Its not about interests, its about similar lifestyles and overall behaviors."
When asked about the key to a successful and happy marriage, Johnny Cash said, "Separate Bathrooms."
An article I once read that "one common trait listed in successful happy marriages was that the center of the brain responsible for anxiety, had almost no activity."
In my experience, no matter how different the partner was, when I give them a chance and tried to like what they liked, I started to eventually appreciate them more for who they were. I think issues arose because the other partner wasn't willing to put as much effort into compromise as I was.
So with that being said, what are your thoughts on the subject?
What sorts of things do you think create "the perfect relationship"?
Are there specific things about duality or enneagram compatilities that make them ideal?
