    i dunno about them being as annoying as you say, you'd think they'd be good on sensibilities in general... (sounds liek you have met some weird ones). But i do think that they pretend to be a lot stupider than they are, which they often do in classroom settings, and thus the default thing you observe in them is "cute mode", but its really them in their standard "do not create a coveting impression"/"gotta be humble" mode

Sure there are occasions where I'd do cute movements acting silly but most of the time it's not there. So I rely on words to relay the silly aspect that's mostly hidden within me.

    What are your ISFJ friends like in person? How expressive are they?
    This sounds very plausible, actually. Most of them are quite serious in person and, though I sense that they've a lot of warmth in them, they seem sort of afraid or inhibited from showing it, as though they think other people will just think they're stupid or something. They come across to me as wanting to be taken seriously, and worried that they won't be. So what you say would be an insider angle that I wouldn't have imagined. Thanks for that

    That also makes sense, most of the ones I know do dumb themselves down quite a bit. I often see them seeming to totally seethe when someone's talking, and because I know them I know fully well that they could use their knowledge and command of language to put the person in their place, but more often than not they simply keep quiet until the person is gone, and either slag them off really venemously to their closest friends, and/or sorta guilt trip the person that's behaved in a bigoted way or whatever, with this kinda patented method they have of telling them off in a cute way, where rather than attack the bigoted opinion, they instead defend, cutely, the thing the bigot was attacking. This often involves portraying it as little and helpless and therefore it's cowardly and wrong to attack it.

    Or something. I'm flailing here LOL

    One of my close friends is an ISFJ. She does have a tendency to send ummm humorous emails. Thank goodness there's no massive 100 address forwards though... those things are really unsafe. Usually she just inform us about events etc (around 5 people in the list? just people in the gang). The other ISFJ in the group doesn't really forward anything to us.

    Neither of them use cutesy difficult to understand language... although sometimes even I go. All caps and giggly online.

    one isfj i know does this cutesy baby voice. another isfj i know would prefer to show her serious side and i couldn't imagine her putting on the cutesy act at all.

    I have a female ISFJ cousin and she doesn't talk in a cutesy voice UNLESS there is a baby around. Then all hell breaks loose.

    I have a male ISFJ boyfriend who is very cute and sweet and mocks me a lot with a cutesy voice but he is joking. (I secretly think he just really wants to talk like that but don't tell him I said that)
