Typelogic Archetype Relationship Pair Chart for MBTI

I wasn’t able to find a pair chart online, so I decided to create one for myself and others. This chart is based on typelogic pair definitions found here, and the 16 MBTI┬« personality types researched by Dr. Myers & Dr. Briggs and the theories of Dr. Carl G. Jung (1875 – 1961).

The 16 Personality Types

ENFP, INFP, ENFJ, INFJ, ESTJ, ISTJ, ESFJ, ISFJ, ENTP, INTP, ENTJ, INTJ, ESTP, ISTP, ESFP, ISFP.

The Pair Definitions

Advisor: Each has an area of insight that the other lacks

Cohort: Mutually drawn into experiential escapades

Companion: Similar modes of expression: bear each other’s company well

Complement: Compatible strengths with opposite emphases

Supplement: Like Pal, but functions are farther removed: each can add to the other’s strengths

Tribesman: Share a sense of culture, but with different interests and abilities

Anima: Fits Dr. Beebe’s description of the anima/anumus: each is the other’s inferior (4th) function

Contrast: Point and counterpoint on each function

Counterpart: Perform similar functions in totally different realms

Enigma: A puzzle: totally foreign in nearly every facet

Identity: Same types: a typological mirror-image

Neighbor: Arrive at the same place by variant processes

Novelty: Intriguingly different: interestingly so

Pal: Work and play well together: minimal natural type conflict

Pedagogue: Each is both the other’s mentor and student: has a “parent to child” feel

Suitemate: A person one might be comfortable sharing an office. Prefer similar climates, but don’t necessarily have much in common as far as goals or world view
