According to the Boo algorithm, an ESFP is the personality with the most similar way of thinking, shared values, and process of decision-making. They are like you, but the extroverted or introverted version. In most cases, we are naturally drawn to individuals who are the polar opposites of our extroversion and introversion, making them a total fit within our compatibility radar.

ESFJ is the second personality type we recommend. Personalities who have opposite 1st and last letters but share the two in between on their MBTI types make good complements. Extroversion and introversion from the example above are the most influential dynamics behind attraction. Of course, do not forget to count the opposing chemistry of Judging and Perceiving that fill in each other's weaknesses. We bet you've heard this love story before — one person is more organized, controlled, and put-together (Judging), while the other is more spontaneous, passive, and carefree (Perceiving).
