    well, a good friend of mine is isfj and she's very peaceful and stable and nurturing, yes, but i find that she tends to shut down easier than my istj husband who can almost function like a machine when he needs to get something done. i mean, to me she's a downright 'flake' at times. but these are just two people...haha. just my experience.

    at least there seems to be agreement on isXj anyway, for the most part.

    xntp seems stable, but in a very passionate way, so i'd not really call that 'the most stable type.' seems like they are more likely to get overheated and into an intenseness.

    my husband is better at dealing with day to day stuff with people than me. he doesn't seem quite as introverted about dealing with errands and people regarding the bank, insurance, calling people, the contractor, the excavator, etc. as me. but maybe that comes to istjs more with age and experience? he's 40.

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.
    exactly. my friend pretty much defines herself by her family, almost to a codependent realm to me. but she seems happy enough in that.

    I think this is endearing... Maybe that's why ISTJs and ISFJs are a good match.

    I disagree that an SJ could be the most stable type

    I remember watching someone on TV recently talking about the economy etc and he said "people don't understand that you need to 'dance with the chaos'"

    Essentially what he was getting at is things don't go to plan and we need to be constantly changing and constantly adapting, he said the methods being used with regards to the recessions aren't new or adapted to how the world is today

    In regards to the question however I'm not going to name a type that is more "stable" one could argue what "stable" even means... if we are talking emotional stability then a thinking type is less likely to get caught up in it but there's always exceptions

    If you are talking financially stable then MAYBE an SJ but if they get stuck in their ways they may never take a risk to reach financial freedom that say an SP would do

    i really think you are right. istjs want their women where they want them, and isfjs do whatever their men want.

    And what is it that would make SP's more stable (whatever your definition is) than other temperaments?

    I'd say IxTx's have the greatest potential to force stability despite circumstances. Whereas the other types rely a bit more on the external world and chance of circumstances.

    I'm ISTJ, I don't think I'm stable, I'm pretty inconsistent. But in general, yeah probably the ISTJs get my vote.

    c'mon. you have to go with j. p? nah, they're too fun-loving-live-in-the-moment to be the most stable.

    I know several P's that are extremely stable. Even more stable than me.

    I'm quite stable as well in my opinion, but that's from a subjective point of view. Others may disagree.
