She found herself rejecting many different men because they didn't live up to her ideal of the perfect soulmate. Eventually, she did figure out he had flaws, but by that time, she was far gone. Keirsey recommends Rational-Idealist pairings and suggests that the best combinations would be the 'opposite,' that is, ENTJ with INFP, ENTP with INFJ, INTJ with ENFP, and INTP with ENFJ.

In college, Pat found some dates in her upper level classes and professional organizations. They enjoy long technical and philosophical talks and cultural experiences. They broke up when he pushed for a further commitment and she realized he wasn't what she wanted long term.
