Because society expects females to be the compassionate one and males to be the tough one, a ENTJ male – ENFJ female relationship should be a better match than the other way around, which doesn’t mean that an ENFJ male – ENTJ female is always a bad match.The fact that ENFJs have extroverted feeling (Fe) as their dominant function and ENTJs have it last on their priority list can make things tough in this relationship.This happens because Fe is literally the last thing ENTJs listen to when making a decision, and it's the same for ENFJs and Te.If these two types want to have a good relationship they both need to grow a lot, which is not necessarily a bad thing, especially for two intuitive types who are keen on growth in all aspects of life.

summarized for those who don’t like long stories: - easily connect on an intuitive level - both like to create structure and order - might see each other as stubborn after some time - need to work on listening to each other while making decisions, and not just listening, but also taking each other's opinions into account - the ENTJ might not be able to meet the ENFJ's idealized standards for love and affection, especially for spoken words of affection because ENTJs believe actions speak louder than words (most ENTJ males would rather spell “I love you” with jet exhaust trails than say it out loud) - the ENTJ has to try to be less critical and argumentative and the ENFJ has to try to be less threatened by conflict and criticism - if the ENFJ is immature, the ENTJ will see her as emotionally manipulative, clingy or even two-faced - if the ENTJ is immature the ENFJ will see her as selfish, arrogant and stubborn ENTJ ENFJ relationship – long story Although it’s not the top choice by theory, this MBTI match is one of the better ones – mainly because both types are , which can result in almost magnetic attraction.
Briggs and Myers designed the test with the belief our preferences evolve based on our experiences, interests, needs, values, and motivations.
This suggests personality compatibility is largely based on personal preference.
