Well on that I have a general comment, which perhaps doesn't fit here but I may extend it elsewhere --
It depends on your experiences and expectations. My ESFj ex had already had at least one INTj boyfriend, probably even two. So she was used to a level of satisfaction that I could not easily provide, in terms of receptiveness to
in order to generate positive
. She had experience of duality, so she wasn't satisfied with super-ego -- even though in many respects we were a better match than she with her INTj ex. Also, I think her father was also INTj.
By contrast, I have met women who have repeatedly had Socionics-unfavorable relationships that don't last long, and they tend to go back to the same types -- because they have never experienced anything better, so they don't expect anything better.
Slacker Mom once said how she was difference from most of her married friends: while they kept droning on about "men" and the small fights and how that was "unavoidable" in a marriage, she would say "my husband and I don't fight, ever".
So, your experiences and expectations are also a factor in whether it will "work" or not -- and it depends on word "work".
