Find your perfect match.

Of all the Myers-Briggs types, do you know which personality type you are? You could be an ENFJ or an 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).

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

ESFJ: you're practical and you need some romance in your life immediately. Try a romantic guy.

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 soft-hearted brainiac, or the party boy. You never know who you'll end up with.
