Everyone has different opinions on talking about personality type on a first date. Among my friends, the results are mixed. There are some who say you should absolutely talk about it, it’s unavoidable. For others, it is an absolute no-go area!
In my opinion, the answer is yes … and no. Personality type can be a great tool for learning more about your date and getting the conversation flowing. But it’s also a good idea to handle the subject with care. Personality type can be a very personal topic so it needs to be approached in an open-minded way.

Analyzing and understanding one’s personality with Jungian psychology can be of great help to you on a personal or professional level. It can be an even more valuable asset on a love and relationship level.
Have you ever found yourself at one of those awkward family dinners where one of your aunts tries to set you up with someone? Been there. Truth is, people give a lot of importance to relationship status. We often talk about finding “the one” or refer to our partners as our “better half,” and there’s nothing like being single at a family dinner to make you feel like the odd one out.
But is the idea of finding love and fulfillment outside of yourself ever healthy? And where do we draw the line between love and neediness?
From the joy of a sweetheart’s embrace after weeks of being apart to the familiar smile of a long-time friend, INTP personalities deeply cherish true love. We may have the reputation for being relationship-shy and emotionally indifferent but actually, INTPs take their relationships very seriously. It’s just that we prefer long-term, monogamous relationships masquerading as a friendship over the flashy types of romance that other types may prefer.
Picture the scene: a relaxed Sunday morning, the sun glinting through the cracks between the curtains. An ENFJ rolls over in bed, checks the time and begins to stretch. They have a whole list of plans for the day and they’re ready to get up and out.
As with most Introverts, INFPs are a private sort, which means it can be difficult to read their most intimate feelings. Emotional and often spiritual, INFP personalities enjoy having plenty of alone time when they can reflect on the mysteries of life.
Have you ever met someone and felt like they absolutely, totally get you? That this person makes you feel alive and excited just by saying hello? If you’re an INFJ who’s met an ENTP, you’ll know exactly what I mean. Many people say that ENTP and INFJ types are made for each other.
