There are plenty of characteristics you might want in a long-term partner, but one that's easily overlooked is whether the person you’re into is just as inclined to commit as you are. It seems obvious, but when you're crushing hard, it's easy to forget that they might prefer something a little more casual. While any personality type is capable of commitment if they're with the right partner, there are a handful Myers-Briggs personality types who make the best long-term partners because they already know that committed relationships are where they thrive.
These personality types tend to take a more traditional, goal-oriented approach to life. They understand what they want, and they know they like having a partner to share those experiences and achievements with. They also have a bit of a romantic streak, although some personality types are better at hiding it than others. (If you're not sure what your personality type is, you can take the test to find out.)
Here are the Myers-Briggs personality types that tend to favor long-term love affairs and are most open to commitment.
ISFP (The Adventurer)
ISFPs tend to be outwardly quiet and easy-going, but get to know them a bit better and you'll discover that they're actually very adventurous and up for anything. They also take loyalty and commitment very seriously, which is why they crave both stability and excitement in their relationships. Despite their taste for new experiences, when an ISFP gives someone their heart, they mean it.
ESFJ (The Consul)
This warm-hearted personality type is all about creating harmony in their life. They give their all to everything they do — especially relationships — and they expect the same in return. When it comes to dating, they take a more traditional view. They want to go on proper dates and be wooed in order to figure out if you're the right person to settle down with. They want to be with someone who shares their values, brings more balance to their life, and who believes in a forever kind of love.
ENTJ (The Commander)
ENTJs can be a force of nature. This personality type has goals, and knows just how to achieve them. But they also want to have a true partner who they can share all their successes with. As in all things, ENTJs focus on long-term goals in relationships, and they don't have the time or energy to waste on short-term romance. They want a partner who values their ambition and steadfastness, and when they find that someone, they'll give them their heart.
INTJ (The Architect)
INTJs want to build a solid foundation with someone that can stand the test of time. In relationships, they're looking for a true commitment and to forge a deep, life-long bond with their partner. Their ideal partner is someone who can challenge them intellectually, which will help them expand their world view. This sign is a skeptic and values that trait in a significant other. In fact, it's their biggest turn-on. Sure, they want a physical connection, but it's the mental one that truly earns their long-lasting love and adoration.
When you’re ready for something serious, give one of these personality types a shot at love. You just might find your partner for life.
