    I need to know what to expect, im dating an istj. hes amazing, but i dont want to get bored with him and I dont want him to get bored with me.
    thats been the fault of majority of my relationships.... I'm not sure what to expect.

    Anything will be helpfull.

    And it would be greatly appreciated.

    Act more SJ, basically. Repress your instincts to go against the grain or act impulsively, always be punctual, get all jobs done to standards, etc. Do you want to? Up to you.

    Oh, one more thing. Don't expect accolades for any impressive changes in behavior, because to the ISTJ, you'll only be acting the way everyone is supposed to act anyway.

    Who gets bored, you or the guys?

    Also, I advise against acting like an SJ. You should continue to be yourself. That's probably why he likes you, afterall. I think the ISTJ-ISFP match is good. As long as you are understanding and accepting of his tendencies, then you are doing your part.

    I was going to write this almost verbatim. Yes, just be yourself.

    Yeah, that's the cliche advice, but "being yourself" doesn't always work, or everyone would be smiley mother truckers, and no one would ever get divorced.

    But your advice of basically lying i sooo much better??? LOLOL Ok one thing to ease your mind.... from the ISTJs I know they DO NOT get bored!! Contrary to popular belief (Or unbelief depending on how you look at it ) they tolerate Pness very well when they get used to it... they are the typical 'love you warts n all' types which is the best... they actually get off on reality which makes them to me very special!! As for you not getting bored my advice is more limited!! Have not been able to cure this in myself yet... Shall ponder some more
    ... couldn't drag me away

    Commitment! But if things are going well, then this probably happens by itself.

    Sometimes, ISTJs can even get scared of commitment, though, because they've overcommitted in the past, and felt disappointed when it was a one way thing.

    You can't spell "justice" without ISTJ.
