Because of their love for people and socializing, they are likely to have a large network around them, supporting and mediating for the couple in time of need. Struggles Because both love to speak, not so much listen , they may try to compete for air time when conversing with one another. So instead of listening, they may out talk each other in order to be heard.

ISTJs (Introverted, Sensing, Thinking, Judging) are the straightforward thinkers of the group. “‘ISTJ’s are practical and direct in their approach to dating.
Conceptualists make wonderful mates-they are loyal, uncomplaining, warmly and creatively sexual, honest, and aboveboard in their communications, and not in the least possessive. But for all the satisfactions they bring to a marriage, establishing romantic relationships with a Conceptualist usually requires much more energy and time than with the other temperaments.
Even the extraverted Conceptualists, the ENTJs and the ENTPs , although apparantly easy to get know, are difficult to get close to, for their personality structure is characteristically complex and, at times, hidden from view. Another temperament may believe that they know or are close to Conceptualist, when in fact, the Conceptualist has carefully and cautiously controlled which parts of his or her personality he has chosen to reveal to other.
This results in pleasant surprises for the Conceptualit’s mate as sometimes these other, deeper facets of a Conceptualists personality may not be revealed for years. NT Conceptualist Courtship Conceptualists do not care to spend much of their time or energy making social connections. Not only do they find the rituals of dating slightly absurd, but they seem to have more difficulty than other temperaments engaging in play, which makes dating usually something of a trial for them.
While the NTs will attempt to cover their lack of social skills by clowning around, they tend, on the whole, to be rather serious and cerebral, enjoying discussions of esoteric topics full of technical details everything you wanted to know about chemical bonding-and more , a pastime which the other temperaments are apt to find dreadfully dull. For most NTs, intellectual development seems to proceed at a faster rate than does the social development-they are often math whizzes and science nerds in high school and college-and they tend to prefer thier books and computers to football games and prom dates.
But even in young adulthood, Conceptualists remain somewhat stiff and awkward when it comes to dating, and many show almost no interest in developing social graces or in being popular.
