As the functional opposite of Ne, Si urges them to forego the new (Ne) in favor of the tried and true (Si).It confers a concern for tradition, as well as for the development of behavioral routines and habits.Unfortunately, it is rarely long before such pairings begin to encounter difficulties, as they realize how little they have in common and how different they really are.This is not to say that ENTPs could never make it work with SJs, but only that these relationships are predictably more challenging because of the opposing nature of the involved personality functions.
Because of their openness and versatility, they can find love and compatibility with a number of different personality types.
But because Thinkers’ Feeling function is largely unconscious and undeveloped, selecting a long-term partner by way of feelings is in many ways a blind, naïve, and irrational practice.
This ties into much of what I have written about the allure of the inferior function, in which Thinkers are drawn to Feelers for the same reasons they fall into the grip of their own inferior (and/or tertiary) function.
ENTPs love speculating and debating, dealing largely in hypotheticals.
They enjoy bouncing from one topic to the next, as one idea quickly begets associations with another.
