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.Compared to other types, the Rationals don’t seem to have much to lose if they make a random choice. The best we can say at this point is that one study found that male INTPs were more likely than most to marry female INTPs (Marioles, Strickert, & Hammer, 1996). In , Keirsey further suggested that STJs and STPs would not be able to "appreciate or encourage the unique traits of the Engineer [NTP]" as a mate.The Idealists, by contrast, would be able to appreciate and admire the NTP Engineer's ingenuity.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.It would seem that for Rationals, the Idealists generally make the most satisfying temperament pairing. Originally, he and Bates (1984) believed that ESFJ Providers would also be a good match, but in Please Understand Me II he modified this view to indicate that sharing the same Intutition/Sensing orientation is important in a relationship.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.
Actually, INTPs don't have any problems getting married.Ever since Keirsey, an INTP himself, published Please Understand Me II in 1998, it has generally been accepted that the Idealists are the best partners for the Rationals.This appears to be true--at least from the Rational point of view.As for the SPs, Artisans with Rational spouses tended to have a 73% satisfaction rate, while Rationals with Artisan spouses tended to have only a 54% satisfaction rate. In fact, all the other temperaments rated the Rationals higher than the Rationals rated them (see below).
Tieger and Barron-Tieger suggested that NTs may rate their partners lower than average since they tend to be the most critical temperament and set particularly high standards. Isabel Myers (INFP) married a man named Chief, an ISTJ and a good man.They were happy together, but according to Isabel's own type theory they weren't predicted to be perfect for each other.This would tend to depress Rational scores more than would be reflected in reality.
