    I had thought you were trying to get rid off one...

    I know a girl (although she would prefer 'woman') who scored ISTJ on a test, but I think she's has far too strong Se to be an ISTJ... atleast she's much more interested in appearances than I am.

    What kind of guys do ISTJ girls like? Are you also crazy about xNFPs like we are?

It looks like the ones that have posted here since I've been here like to study and travel internationally a lot and save the world. Can one of you smarty pants NT's invent a device that promises that to them?
    Yeah exactly.
    Ostentatiousness is a surefire way to ensure I'm not interested. I don't mind if you're rich (lol, who's going to say no just because someone has money?) but if you show it off or shove this fact in people's faces I think you're pathetic. I'd rather make money in order to save it and make sure my family was secure in the future, while living a simple lifestyle (although I'm not interested in depriving myself of food/heat/water etc, because if you can afford it why would you do that??)
    I like contributing to society, whether helping out in the local community (I've volunteered a fair bit) or by being interested and acting on a wider level (I'm politically active), because I feel everyone's here for a purpose so I might as well try to make a difference.

    Having said that, there's always a desire for stability lurking in the background imo, but in my experience this means finding people you can love, relax with and rely on, to escape the crazy hassle of daily life and who you can share your well-hidden emotions with.
    This is why, although I do like to do all that you've said Hmm, I've realised that I'm quite content to settle down and work to earn enough money to raise a family when I'm 30 or whatever (I do think it would be selfish to start my own family until I had saved enough to support them). I think, like we've been discussing in another post, this instinct only kicks in when you really believe you've found the right person. Otherwise you might as well continue to travel internationally and save the world! (Btw, I'm not going to stop being politically active or community-minded ever, it'll just be more localised.)

    Possibly the INFP, but I'm not keen on any extravert guys (maybe ENFJ).
    My boyfriend is ISFJ, and I consider him to be my perfect match.
    I've dated/been interested in INTPs in the past, but I've got over that whole liking bastards episode that teenage girls seem to go through.

    I'm trying to get rid of a chemically unbalanced/emotionally unstable ISTJ female, Habba. Not ALL of them.

    Yes, I am curious too. Do the ISTJ girls go crazy over the xNFP's? Maybe it is just us.

    Nah, we're not flashy like that (at least I'm not). Yes, I like financial stability and prefer not to eat Ramen noodles every day, but remember, ISTJs are pretty thrifty. These might be better suited to lure us in:

    Airline tickets are always good....gotta love Si!

    Mmmmm, a cold-hearted NT man

    Free stuff is always good....especially when it's practical!

    Just for kicks and giggles

    Gotta occupy my recharging time.

    I don't think I know any xNFP guys. I try not to type people...plus, there's not many guys in education, so I've got slim pickins anyway. Overall though, I like the quiet, independent, and serious nature of NT guys...especially if they have a nicely balanced feeling function.

    I'm a girl. Hi Shadow!

    I agree with Recoleta and some of the others - ostentatious wealth is not attractive to me in a future mate. I would very much enjoy being rich, but that is partly because then I could do a lot of fun things helping people in poorer countries. Isn't the ability to change someone's entire life with the gift of farming supplies/training or mini loans orphan care or animals (i.e. Heifer) the ultimate luxury? Being able to bring that much relief and joy to someone is far better than boats and designer clothes.

    I am not currently in a relationship, but I always seem most attracted to the INTJ guys. Like, magnet attraction. I guess ISTJ guys like the XNFP girls b/c you guys need someone cute and bubbly to lighten you up, whereas maybe ISTJ girls need someone who is stronger than them and won't get steamrolled by our determined personalities? I don't think of myself as that confident of a person, but people around me seem to think I am really strong/determined, and they are probably more accurate. I do like XNFPs a lot but I don't think they would be good as a mate for me.

    So is it just the aeroline tickets themselves or the places they take you?

    Interesting, I have an ENFP friend with same opinion.
    Is not to be held accuntable for peeling errors.

    Hi Amira! Everyone's coming out of hibernation now

    I think this is a good evaluation of the apparent differences in who ISTJ males and females are attracted to:

    It's the gender differences that seem to be important. I have a few ENFP guy friends, interestingly they seem to be the type of guys that are direct if they want to ask me out, but they don't seem much of a 'shoulder to lean on' type... Good to go to clubs with though!
    I don't understand why descriptions of ISTJs say we're likely to fall for the irresponsible alcoholic type who'll get gambling debts and all that cr**. <-- I'd run a mile from someone like that!

    Recoleta - Awesome list! I think you have indeed defined the "Female ISTJ-trapper"! Interesting that you also think House is hot! Okay, so maybe he represents the irresponsible people mentioned above... (Obviously I'd get frustrated and dump him )
