    Yeah, that's what I was thinking. I've always realized that my biggest flaw in terms of stability was my inability to stay focused on the present instead of getting lost in my own mind. If I had that, I'd be perfectly stable. I'm already more stable than some (but not most) TJs.

    TJs tend to surpass FJs in terms of efficiency and such when healthy, but they deteriorate far more rapidly and completely under stress. I'm not sure how accurate this is, but it seems like IFJs have this thing where they tend to just "wind down" into apathy rather than "blow up" in a fit. Which technically makes them more stable.

    I still tho think that the whole question is a definition thing. With my entp boss you for example can count on the fact that he will run naked through the office on or two times, four times max per week.

    Though you dont know, how often he does it or whether he gives you a neckpinch, while running naked around you, you can count on the fact that he WILL go haywire.

    I personally think thats a form of stability bound to success. Not like your boring "old men ISTJ" crap

    Though, I've noticed a trend in a handful of ISFJs that marriage is viewed as the ultimate achievement. That's just a big WTF in my mind.

    The I-S-T-J, fellas they are called the I-S-T-J's. ISFJ's aswell when they dont become slaves to their emotions. Mature STP's are hard to instablize.
    "Where can you flee? What road will you use to escape us? Our horses are swift, our arrows sharp, our swords like thunderbolts, our hearts as hard as the mountains, our soldiers as numerous as the sand. Fortresses will not detain us, nor arms stop us. Your prayers to God will not avail against us. We are not moved by tears nor touched by lamentations."

    Yeah, that's one thing I really don't envy ISFJs. Centering their lives around marriage rather than anything else probably makes them very stable, patient, and undemanding, but extremely... well, I don't know, lacking in personality/identity. That just doesn't seem like much of an identity or drive in life. I can't see how someone would be content with that.
