    My boyfriend and I have had a discussion before in which we agreed that we are happy to have him be generally dominant (he's ESFJ and, imo, a better leader and decision-maker) and me to be generally submissive - but I asserted that we are fundamentally equals and I will not hesitate to act as if we are. I think it makes us both happier in the long run, though... it seems healthiest for us to have an equal power balance. And he seems to appreciate it when it comes down to situations where we act this out.

    I also really respect him because he is supportive and encouraging, even directive of me, but he will not choose what direction I should take, even when I press him to choose for me. He forces me to choose for myself, which is so drastically different than an ENFJ I was with who was very clear about what my preferences and behavior "should" be. It's hard for me because I shy away from decisions, but it's good for me, too, because he's forcing me to abide with my decisions but supporting me through them. He's supportive and dominant without being controlling. He encourages me to me decide who I am.

    I noticed the picture before reading the actual post, and the post described everything I would have guessed about him from his picture (except that he seems like a 2w3 So/Sx)

    Oh, no, that's not him. I just read Silk's comment about uniforms making people hot and immediately thought of naval officers in dress whites, who never fail to make me swoon.

    The boy is clean-cut and put together too, though. And he does wear a uniform from time to time.

    ah (I would have guessed it, he gave exactly the same vibe as the person you just described)
