    i agree i happen to be close friends with a few a few INFJs, there's a lot we have in common with our motives and good hearts, and seeking something genuine and authentic. i really apreciate having them in my life because they seem to have a more understanding of possibilities where i can get stuck a lot on one subject

    How do fellow ISFJs here feel about long distance relationships?

    Also, how do you feel about relationships where there is heavy emphasis on 'going with the flow' since the future can't be determined?

    Don't care for them, as it makes me feel incredibly insecure. I need standards that I know will never be crossed and always upheld

    Frustrating and painful.

    I think maybe medium emphasis is better for me. I don't even like that it's emphasized but I realize that some going with the flow is necessary (for me too).

    Hey,

    If you had just five things you wanted others to understand about ISFJ's what would those five things be? Don't worry about putting them in order of importance.

    Just for me anyways...

    1) I thrive on attention and affection and wither and become distant and distrustful without it. I don't mean you need to constantly dot on me but the best way to keep happy is a steady, consistent stream of interest from you

    2) I *really* do not like unexpected surprises (unless they involve me coming home and finding my SO waiting for me with nothing but a rose between her teeth. That is completely acceptable )

    3) I often come into anything I do with a certain set of expectations, be it my job or or a relationship. These projections may or may not be realistic or fair. The more the reality strays from these expectations, the more difficult time I have dealing with it. That's not to say I won't eventually adjust (I will) it just means I won't do so quietly.

    4) I can't handle betrayal at all. You betray me or abuse me without a really damned good justifiable cause and you're on my blacklist until the end of time. Deal with it.

    5) I often take up a caregiving role with someone, even if they don't truly need it. Humor me if you may, but otherwise gently let me know it's not necessary.

    Wow, Tinker. Thank you. These are great insights. I want to learn all I can about ISFJ's because I have a few of them in my life. They are good-hearted people that I really like, and I want them to know that I respect them, not just with my mouth, but with my actions. Honesty like you have provided helps others like me to "get it." Thanks again.

    You're quite welcome!

    Honestly, I don't think we're a difficult bunch to understand or get along with. I think most people run afoul of us because we're very much creatures of habit and when someone buggers up our routines or expectations (and our sense of security or stability that comes with all that) we tend to react very negatively and as such people tend to see us as being very much "sticks in the mudd"

    But thats my own thoughts.

    And yes, if I could add a number 6 item to that list: Your ACTIONS!!! Actions speak volumes to us, much more than words ever will.
