Their similarities are sure to draw them towards each other. Their strong aesthetic sense, creativity, and most importantly, originality makes them very attractive. They will be loyal to each other, stay committed, and give each other personal space. But the major hindrance will be during the initial stages as both partners won't be able to express their feelings. Hopefully, they will understand each others' gestures. Once, the relationship begins, both will realize that it was worth it.

The downsides could be lack of communication between both partners. ISFPs hate conflicts and literally run away from confrontation. This could lead to lots ofunresolved problems between the couple.
ISFP - ENFP Relationship
The introversion-extroversion combination works well as the ENFP gets someone who will listen to them. The ISFP opens up more with this lively partner. The introverted partner is impressed with how the extroverted one can talk about different things with a variety of people. After all, it is what we lack that we want the most. But the factor that draws them towards each other can rip them apart as well. The ENFP will look forward to attending social events with his partner, but ISFP may want to stay at home. Both partners need to balance their activities so that both are happy. The ENFP could go out with his/her friends sometimes, while the ISFP catches his/her me time.

The intuitive partner is intelligent, creative, and always has a unique perspective on the most mundane things. The sensing partner will be concerned about the practical day-to-day affairs. Although their differences will help balance things out; sometimes, their conservations could become uninteresting for either partner.

The feeling-perceiving similarities help them connect really well. They are able to understand each others' thoughts and perspectives easily. Both preferring feeling, are sensitive, and care about fellow beings. They will realize how helpful and kind their partner is. Since both are perceiving, their relationship will be very easy-going and casual.
ISFP - INFP Relationship

They even have feeling-perceiving preferences in common. Both are sensitive and easygoing individuals. They will always think of their partner first. They are both spontaneous and love surprising their partners.

The only difference is the sensing-intuition preference. The sensing partner will live in the moment and think about the practical matters, whereas the intuitive one will always have a unique and offbeat perspective to everything. This may make their relationship exciting and balance their lives, or may lead to arguments.
ISFP - INTJ Relationship
The introversion factor may work very well for them. Other than this, they don't really have any similarities that can connect them.

The main problem here, could be the feeling-thinking and perceiving-judging combination. INTJ may not understand ISFP's sensitivity, as the judging factor makes them too practical and critical. This could make the ISFP withdraw from the relationship as they cannot handle criticism well.

It is their differences that will create that magical attraction between them. As the initial attraction fizzles out and things start getting serious, they may realize their differences more prominently. All they'll need is love and trust to set things right.
