I've been in incredibly strong like with an INTJ guy for well over a year. And within the last couple of semesters the pile of evidence that he reciprocates has been growing steadily. Due to certain circumstances however, neither of us can really say or do anything about it until next fall. Of course, knowing INTJs, it may take a bit longer even after we're past this roadblock, and I'm completely fine with that.
Basically what I'd like to know is, although there are a lot of variables, what is your general prognosis for and INTJ and an ISTJ relationship?
From my aspect, I think it can work. I really appreciate that it's very unlikely that he'll ever emotionally vomit on me or demand a lot of emotional maintenance, it's something he won't have to worry about with me either. I can appreciate his subtleties and they mean more to me than anything ostentatious. This may be presumptuous, but I think to a certain extent I get how he works. And I'm fine with his need for privacy, I don't need to know what he's thinking, etc.
So what do you all think about ISTJs regarding romantic potential? What do you like about them, what do you dislike or find potentially problematic?
If you need more details, I'll fill in what I can.
Thanks in advance.
