Hmm, I don't know. But what's funny is that ... I have been in stress mode for half a year now and my ISTJ friend told me that I have been becoming more and more like her, lol! We suddenly agreed on a lot of things. But I don't know about your theory...hmmm... Because if I become ISTJ when stressed, I'd have unhealthy Si traits or extreme Si traits but I was and am definitely using Te to solve my problems.
I think that the pattern is more along the lines of: usually, you don't access your ISTJ side (or I my ISFP side). Times of stress, however, make it more likely to access that part of ourselves. If we do not usually access that part of ourselves, we use our ISTJ/ISFP skills badly, due to lack of skill and experience. Should we normally access this other side of ourselves when we're not under stress, then when it comes out during our more stressful times, it might be more tiring, but we don't behave badly as a result.
I don't know why that says ESFP....I would sooo wear that

Not to say that INFPs cannot become argumentative, but I also have a hard time seeing an INFP getting into heated debates at work over politics/religion.
People at my last job joked that I didn't even talk for the first year there - debates on personal beliefs was nothing that I'd even dream of discussing at work (in most contexts actually).

It never goes away, and sometimes I wish it would.
I find the NTJ/NFP pairings confusing also. I've dated a few INTJs casually and I wasn't all that impressed....

From what I gather from the ENTJ, she likes that I am soft yet masculine enough for her to let the emotions out of their coffers. She likes my sense of humor and that I pay attention to what she's saying, and I offer "unique" insight that promote her strength in ways that she would not have seen otherwise.
The male INTJ appreciates that I can be with him and pick up on the details without having to explain everything. Once more, the sense of humor is boundless here. I think that is the key to both relationships : the proverbial kicking off your shoes and letting your freak flag fly-that's practically the NFP motto. By being autonomous while attentive and inclusive, respect is evident from him.
