Extrovert enjoys that there is an active listening ear in the Introvert, always ready to listen to his thoughts and rants. Introvert enjoys that the Extrovert takes social leadership in most occasions, connecting them to new friends and people that they otherwise would be too shy to approach. Struggles Extroverts, however, may find that the Introvert is too quiet and communicates too little with nothing to share.
They may feel Introverts are boring, or just disinterested in talking to them. Introverts may find that Extroverts are too loud and talk too much without listening to them.
An Introvert may feel neglected and unheard by Extroverts because they will only share if asked - and Extroverts usually don't ask.

This can lead to conflict which the INFJ tends to shy away from. The strong mutual desire for harmony may compel both parties to bottle up negative feelings and avoid disagreements in an attempt not to introduce stress and discord into their relationship.
Unfortunately, this will eventually backfire when the these unhappy feelings overflow. This is all very pleasing and creates an ESP effect. The INFJ knows how to encourage them and let them know it's okay to have dark thoughts, to be a little serious, and to have the crazy kind of depth. They're both well-liked people and sometimes struggle with people pleasing.
They're family-centered and will put a lot of energy toward building and raising a family well. When they're both certain they want to stay with each other, they'll put less energy toward friends. They get emotionally motivated toward each other. If both are mature in their functions, they'll be an incredible support system for each other. They may both struggle with their "S" Sensinghowever, which is down in the gutter. If you only rely on intuition, it will be like having a super-powerful right arm with a gimpy, in-need-of-being-amputated left arm.
You can get in tune with your Sensing side by cooking, dancing, doing chores, pottery, hiking, etc. Slow your mind down and be more conscious of what you're doing.
This will help you become grounded in reality. You might not like it at first, but if you balance this out, you'll also have stronger intuition.
Si is one of the most difficult functions to understand and grow. It's not something the western world promotes, but the eastern world gets it. Si has to do with understanding the physical processes within.
You can do this through meditation, chakra balancing, praying, etc. Try spending time by yourself for 30 minutes and going through each part of your body and asking how it feels. Do this until the storm of intuition in your mind stops talking both through your mouth and brain. If an ENFP refuses to take care of their Fi and Si for things they consider more fun, those qualities will stab them in the back.
Their Ne allows them to understand different points of view, and their Fi gives them a strong capacity for empathy. They're known for being open-minded and enthusiastic novelty-seekers. More than anything, ENFPs fear boredom and stagnation. With extroverted intuition guiding them, they can see how things fit in at an advanced, macrocosmic level. You may drive an ENFP crazy with too many details and structure when what they really crave is openness, both in ideas and in their lifestyle.
Though they're skilled at looking at the big picture, ENFPs can also go all the way to the bottom with introverted sensing, where they must ask questions of their body, how it feels, why it feels the way it does. The more ENFPs can force themselves to better understand this, the more they'll grow and appreciate everything. This can lead to anxiety, restlessness, and trouble sleeping. The ENFP is the champion and always wants to involve people, spread ideas, and get things in motion. But they have a more introspective side that they don't always know how to convey or whether they should convey it at all.

They love deep conversations, which engage their Fe and Ni functions, and they're deeply concerned with quality and authenticity in all they do. If they are not paired with a partner who enjoys new experiences, or who shares their idealistic enthusiasm, the ENFP may become bored.
The ENFP who is bored and who is not focused will be very unhappy, and will eventually "leave" the relationship if the problem is not addressed.
Since relationships are central to the ENFP's life, they will be very "hands on" and involved with their intimate relationships. They may be in the habit of constantly asking their partner how they're doing, what they're feeling, etc.
This behavior may be a bit smothering, but it also supports a strong awareness of the health or illness of the relationship. Their rich fantasy world makes them fun and creative lovers, who usually have new ideas up their sleeves.

They are also prone to "give in" easily in conflict situations, just to end the conflict. They might agree to something which goes against their values just to end the uncomfortable situation. In such cases, the problem is extended and will return at a later time. The ENFP needs to realize that conflict situations are not the end of the world. They are entirely normal, and can be quite helpful for the growth of a relationship. They also need to work on taking criticism for what it is, rather than blowing up any negative comment into an indictment against their entire character.
Generally, the ENFP is a warm and affirming creature who is very interested and able to have an intense, meaningful, close relationship with their mate. How did we arrive at this?
