MBTI Compatibility Chart

Some personality types get along better with some and not much with others. MBTI compatibility chart tells us which personality types are compatible with each other. The more the compatibility with each other, the better is the understanding between them. Of course, the compatibility cannot make a correct prediction as to whether two personality types will interact and maintain a relationship. But this can tell us how each personality interacts with one another in a social situation, how comfortable they are in a particular situation, how they deal with conflicts and other important areas in any relationship. The four domains of MBTI give us a peek into the compatibility of the personality types. 

  • Extroversion and introversion are compatible with each other. Individuals with either of these personalities tend to gravitate towards each other as extroverts help introverts explore more options, and introverts help extroverts think and reflect. 
  • Sensing or intuition go well together as they help each other understand and similarly see the world.
  • Thinking and feeling have no role in deciding compatibility. 
  • Judging and perceiving are similar to extraversion/introversion in that they help each other come out of their respective comfort zones.
