    I'm sure she doesn't feel it's intended slight hopefully she's the kind that's strong enough to not let it bother her. Most of the time I can be pretty good about slights that are unintentional or truly benign but sometimes...it just stings. Whats even more aggravating is that if you try and be extra nice to try and catch slighting her before you accidentally do it, she'll catch on to what you're doing and may feel you're patronizing her.

    Or at least that's how I often react, and its a small wonder to me that people can get so frustrated with ISFJs. We're a well meaning bunch but far too sensitive. Or, again, maybe that's just me.
    Haha! I am pretty genuine, so it would be hard for me to fake it. She does know when I'm not having a good time. I don't get frustrated with her at all. I just know that I could probably do more to make her feel like I care since my method of expression is so different from hers.

    I can, but I struggle with it a little bit because our interests are so different. I don't want to bore her. We can usually find something to talk about, but sometimes I think she believes that she had an alien child, lol.

    Thanks to all who spoke up. I definitely have a starting point now.

    Hello ISFJs. These questions concern the cognitive functions. I'm an INTP (Ti-Ne-Si-Fe) compared to an ISFJ (Si-Fe-Ti-Ne). Our functions are the same but backwards in a way; does that interest any ISFJs that you may at times display some kind of "INTP" type personality and do you in anyway?

    To add on I think I do at times display the kind and compassionate type nature of an ISFJ but only to about 4 people out of the many I know in life.

    Why are ISFJ such sheep?

    What's your relationship with your Ti - I would have expected it to give you more independent thought.

    Do you feel uncomfortable having your own Ti opinion?

    I slept with a possible isfj on the first date before and then she thought I was "only interested in her for sex" :/, but I actually dug her a lot (I'm just very passionate). How can I avoid this kind ofmisunderstanding in the future?
    For all that we have done, as a civilization, as individuals, the universe is not stable, and nor is any single thing within it. Stars consume themselves, the universe itself rushes apart, and we ourselves are composed of matter in constant flux. Colonies of cells in temporary alliance, replicating and decaying and housed within, an incandescent cloud of electrical impulses. This is reality, this is self knowledge, and the perception of it will, of course, make you dizzy.

    Passion is good, very good. But it's okay to slow down.

    I don't know about other ISFJs so I can't speak for them, but I think and do what I feel is right. Sometimes that falls right in line with what the masses think and do. If I don't like what the masses are doing, then I won't do it (provided I can walk my own line without encountering too many problems). This happens sometimes.

    So do you actually know any ISFJs or are you just making blanket generalizations based on really bad stereotypes of ISFJs?

    Sometimes, but only because I don't want conflict with the other party....even if I know that I'm right.

    I'm not a female, but if I were to feel that way it would be because after we did the deed there was no communication or sense of closeness/reconnection/warm fuzzies. How did things play out after you guys did the deed?

    Ok... I usually rely on the girl to slow me down, but that's not fair I guess :/ Especially with more sensitive girls that I may have more long term potential with.

    Lol nooooo comment D:

    It was complicated by a lot of factors I'm sure, but I take your point. Also, I like the quote in your sig.













    if you must know we had to run to the store for a pill the next day so it was a bit chaotic. (It was quite a night lol and no I do not make a habit of it!!)

    You're right. If she was the one who wanted to slow down, she should have said something. @tinker683 is right though, the situation could be remedied after the fact by you putting more effort into establishing a stronger emotional connection.
