I just wanted to let you guys know that you all are great. ESFJs can be pretty great too, but I really like ISFJs. My ISFJ friend and my ISFJ mom keep my grounded when my own fears, magnified by NF, start to overwhelm me. You're like lovely sea chorals or anemones. You know? I love how you seem to bloom around me and I'm always tragically upset when someone startles or hurts you and sends you back into your shell. I understand how unique it is that you let your guard down and get to be totally real. You're loyalty blows me away, and your consistency makes me feel safe. I love that playful nature that hides beneath your cool exterior. It's so much fun to make you laugh.
I know all ISFJs are not the same, every person is different. Some are wonderful, some are jerks. But for what it's worth, despite what some others on this forum have said, I can totally see how wonderful and neccessary and just lovable ISFJs are.
Thanks for being you.
