    Yeah, my mom is an ISTJ and she doesn't really do the whole helping/favor thing. And on the rare occasion that she does, she keeps that "favor" in the back of her mind for the next time she needs something form that person. My father, an ISFJ OTOH, irritates her to no end because he is always selflessly helping others on some project or other.

    For instance, my mother's mom will call and drop a hint that her fence needs to be fixed, or that she is having some household problem or other that needs to be taken care of. My mother will just nod her head and tell her "oh, that's terrible. I hope you get it taken care of soon", while my father will volunteer his own time to go and help her. And he doesn't even like her or enjoy doing it. It's just some weird compulsion to be helpful. My mother then proceeds to bitch at him because this takes away time from his work/family/anything else more important in her view, while her mother could have easily paid someone or some service to do the work.

    ISFJs are without a doubt one of the most loyal and self-sacrificing type out there. They take care of their families to the extent that they do develop psychosomatic symptoms and are so fragile and sensitive that others use this. They are often taken for granted.

    True. But they also tend to be passive aggressively hostile to the people outside of their immediate family.

    Right. But they have no balls to say "NO", when confronted directly.

    Yes, but then they retreat back into their office/apartment/hole, and then suddenly "change their mind".

    ISFJs certainly do seem to be in the most danger for martyr syndrome.

    Imay not know many ISFJs, but I have a really hard time seeing why they're be more vulnerable to malicious intent/abuse than ISFPs. Fuck I'd even say INFPs get taken advantage of much more than ISFJs
