    FDG, it is not that I cannot learn through other methods besides doing but that I feel more comfortable with something that I have learned if I am able to see that I can do it. Also, I am a practical person (for the most part), so "practical application" makes a concept or theory more useful to me.

Traditional methods of higher education, which require a lot of theorizing and abstraction, are likely to be a chore for the ISFJ. The ISFJ learns a task best by being shown its practical application.
    ?

    it seems to me that there's a lot of ISFJs in my classes, and I'm doing a masters in actuarial science, there's quite a lot of theorethical stuff to learn
    I've found that this is largely true for me. Not to say I'm incapable of learning theoretical stuff and all but largely I "learn by doing"

    What do you think of your opposite? There is a nice thread about it on the general forum...

    Do you mean ENTPs?

    They seem nice enough, but I've only met a few in my life and they were all men. I wouldn't mind meeting an ENTP female just to see what they were like

    Okay, this probably sounds dumb but I want to add that the ISFJs that study actuary science probably go into a line of work where they can see the impact they are making in a practical way.

    It's true for me too. I get antsy with discussing theory and ideas after a while and I need to see some action. that said, I can fend off my anxiety and discuss/study it for a (long) extended periods of time so long as I know that the practical actions will come at the end in order to balance things (i.e. like in the case of studying for years and then working in the field afterwards).

    I don't know about other ISFJs but it can sometimes be daunting answering in those threads that are riddled with N's who are slamming Ss.

    Well, I have an ENTP friend who is respectful and doesn't push my boundaries too far and he is the most fun and interesting friend evarrrr! I wub him He is so funny, silly, zany, not too serious/boring/uptight, thoughtful, intelligent, sociable, open-minded, and just generally an easy personality to be around. I think he likes my personality type so that helps a lot too.

    Ah, my dad.... No, if something moved it's because I was being lazy or "brilliant" (probably lazy) and put it somewhere else. I've actually been working on a system where I put certain things in a certain spot just to make sure I don't lose them, though. It's been a 20 year work in progress that i still mess up now and then; but now I'm, at least, functional in normal life because of it. ^^;;

    Do you ISFJs ever work on your assertiveness skills? You know that you can overcome your passive-aggressive behavior?

    Please come down sometimes . I love to see some practical S approach, especially because I'm a head-in-the-clouds extreme N myself. I do the best I can to avoid S-bashing. If I ever offend you, please let me know.

    Probably that has more to do with being friends If you like (or vice versa, don't like) a real person, it's easier to find positive (negative) things to say about his personality type.

    ISFJs,

    Do you appear unfriendly and serious to people who don't know you?

    Do you take sides, or do you stay pretty neutral?

    Two separate questions BTW.

    IRL I get told the opposite by everyone I meet. It's possible that I appear that way online but I don't mean to though. I suck at written expression.

    Do you take sides, or do you stay pretty neutral?
    If I care then I can't help but to take a side.
