Could your perfect guy already be in your life?
Do you know what Myers-Briggs personality type you are? You could be a ENFJ or a ISTJ — and if you do know what you are, do you know which type is best for you?
The test, known as the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator, categorizes people into 16 different, four-letter personality types, where each letter represents a preference between two modes of thinking: extroverted (E) versus introverted (I); sensing (S) versus intuitive (N); thinking (T) versus feeling (F); and judging (J) versus perceiving (P).
If you are an:
ENFP: date a nerdy quiet guy.
INTJ: go out with an emotionally intense guy.
ENTJ date a Bill Nye the Science guy type.
ENTP: get things going with a big-hearted, big-brained guy.
ENFJ: inspire an artistic guy.
ESTJ: stop overlooking the sensible, selfless guy.
INFJ: take off your glasses and see that the smart rebel is the perfect guy for you.
ISFP: take a look at the guy you always thought as just-a-friend as something more.
ESTP: date the sweet-as-pie guy.
ISTJ: he kind of seems like your opposite, but you should date the always-up-for-any-kind-of-party dude.
ISFJ: he's here to save the day, and you need to date him — the superhero.
INFP: every artist needs their steady, dependable guy.
ISTP: you already know him, as you run in the same crowd. You need to date the sensual, spiritual guy.
INTP: it's no joke; you need to date the funny man.
ESFP: it may sound old-fashioned, but you need the strong and silent type.
Sometimes it's a great idea to date outside your comfort zone and try a different type than your usual. Mix things up and surprise yourself.
The perfect date is probably someone you normally wouldn't consider as appropriate. So, take a chance on the softhearted brainiac, or the party boy. You never know who you'll end up with.
