    Arrow SJ's & Public displays of affection (PDA's)

    Public displays of affection are a big no-no for the ISTJ I know. He finds it totally unacceptable to do almost any form of PDA.

    As an ENFP, I love PDA's.

    I've read that SJ's generally dislike PDA's. What about you (or your friend/family/partner SJ)?

    My mom (ESFJ) doesn't care or seems to be indifferent. I don't see her kissing my dad in public that often, though she does like to hug and kiss my siblings and I in public. I personally don't think I would like a lot of people around. If I'm showing my affection and love it's a rather private thing in a way. It's special. Not secret necessarily, but cherished and treasured.

    I was so awful with PDA as a teen. Just awful. (making out) My isfj and istj parents were horrified.

    I still don't mind it.

    Yeah, what Eagle said. I am ok with hugs, holding hands, and maybe a kiss goodbye/hello after not seeing eachother for a while. Other than that, I just don't see why it would be necessary? It is a private thing, something for a laying on the couch together watching a movie night.

    So was I! I actually got in trouble with the school principal for it.

    Wait, what actions are defined as "affection"? (Dare I ask?) Certainly there are more than I just listed?

    I would say kissing in public, hand-holding, etc. Of course you could go even more private and say possible sexy encounters in say, a vehicle.
