    Supposedly we are the worst possible match! Both in MBTI and in Socionics.

    ENTP + ISFJ =

    (...the computer is the ENTP)

    What do you think about that? or better yet, what have you experiences been with ENTPs?

    Ooo...I like this thread! xD

    I reckon you lose a bit of character and charm if the house doesn't look lived in.
    I don't know about your Mom, but I do that because I want my guests to think I have my shit together (however false that may actually be)

    1) "Perform thought and deed as you would have the same thought and deed performed unto yourself" or something like that. Basically, if I want someone to be nice to me then I need to be nice to them. If I want someone to work hard, I need to work hard first

    2) I'm a Humanist and derive my values from that

    I know this was directed at Giggly, but I thought I'd chip in an answer: It depends on what it is and who it is. If it's a friend or family member that I like then mostly likely yeah. If it's something I don't like though and if they did something to REALLY piss me off then I'll seethe for a few days but each day I'll become incrementally less annoyed.

    Happy to chip in! Although, I work ALL the damn time so my answers will be probably in the evenings

    I actually have a very bad habit of doing this, as I always feel a 'simple' answer is insufficient as I need you to understand the who/what/when/why/where/context of said touchy subject.

    On that note, don't ask me to explain how I first fell in love or what my depression was like or you'll get a 10-15 paragraph response

    I prefer them on, I like to see what I'm doing. Incidentally, the first time I had sex (which was with my ENFJ-ex) she insisted on the having the lights off...the first few times. I managed to ween her away from that and show her the glorious benefits of illumination

    The only one I can think of is that a lot of ISTJ's that I know have an "ick" attitude toward touchy-feely romance stuff whereas I revel in it

    I could be mixing them up with another type though

    I know one woman that I think is an ENTP and honestly I'd date her in a heartbeat...if she lived closer and didn't think I was some huge, cheesy dork . No, her and I get along great but honestly her and I are just two very different people. She's got a sugar high for science and geology and while I think that's cool and all...when I can't hold a discussion with her about it or when I don't show as much enthusiasm, it irks her.

    Still, I think she's a very sweet woman who's been trashed a lot by guys and as such has walled her emotions in. She doesn't like it when I try to draw out the woman I know is underneath all that armor she has but for some strange reason she likes to talk to me a lot anyway. I think I'm slowly wearing her down with my love-dovey-sappiness

    That or I'm just full of shit. Still, I like talking to her none the less and she seems to enjoy my company so it works. I could date an ENTP but I prefer ESxP's personally

    Honestly we'd be worse of with INTJ or ENTJ. I love ENTP's! What I've found is that as far as decision making goes, I can mesh well with their approach, but my Ti is probably a little more accented than most ISFJ's. It's when you get to the whole perception thing that I lose them. They're kind of on separate wavelengths with the way they see the world and the way they process information. But generally I have a harder time relating to ENFPs than ENTPs.

    That is most certainly not true.

    It's possible she's trying to cover all the bases. I usually give extremely long-winded confusing answers, to make sure that my listener knows everything. The downside, they usually switch off after a while

    I've had a theory that this is an ISxJ thing. I need to go to the mature section and ask that one. I feel like most of us innocent little Si doms are too scared to venture off that far into the deep end though. Maybe I'll do an anonymous poll...

    The reason behind this (I think) is that Si doms have such a rich inner world of sensations, but it's all sort of oriented in the past. So once we've started that particular behavior, it's really kind of embedded into our brains as an intense sensual experience, and we have a hard time forgetting it.

    Dear ISFJs,

    How are you different from ISFPs?

    Do you think you're better or worse human beings?

    must....resist....urge to explain.....functions....

    We're definitely better at being consistent with our duties, but ISFPs probably have a better general outlook on life; they'd be much more attuned to improvising and figuring stuff out on their own than we would. When an ISFJ gets into deep trouble or gets depressed or something, we tend to extrovert our feeling side a LOT. We hang out with people, we listen to advice (and take it very seriously), we latch onto people who are close. ISFP would most likely try to rely on their own convictions and feelings on the matter and if that fails, go out and live for the moment to try to forget.

    Friends are the family you choose.

    I treat them both with love and respect.
