People often say that opposites attract. Never has this been truer than for my husband and me. According to the Meyers Briggs personality test, I am ISTJ and he is ENFP. Total opposites in every regard.
Overview of the Two Personality Types
We have very different personalities and contrasting approaches to many facets of life. Here are a few examples:
|I spend time thinking about upcoming appointments, weekend plans, and making lists for the grocery store. I find the topics that he spends time contemplating overly theoretical and impractical, irrelevant to our lives in the here and now. I focus on the details of everyday life, the things that are most pertinent to us in a more realistic time frame.||He spends a lot of time thinking about philosophical ideologies, the existence of extraterrestrial lifeforms, social justice issues, and higher realms of consciousness. He finds it tedious to expend brain power on mundane, everyday tasks when there is so much more that the world has to offer. He focuses on the big picture, with extravagant dreams and visions for the future.|
