    Are you generally optimistic?

    I'm asking this because the two ENTPs I know are extremely optimistic, to the point of sillyness. Also because I once (before I knew of MBTI) created a fiction character to be "my total opposite - he's shy, traditional, pessimistic..." and turned out afterwards to be an ISFJ too.
    I'm not shy nor traditional but I'm definitely pessimistic.

    Forgive me if I'm totally wrong here, but I got the impression you'd listed your type as ISFJ as some sort of running joke.

    Are you actually ISFJ?
    If you could be anything you want, I bet you'd be disappointed--am I right?

    Yes, very much so.

    I had no idea, really. I can't remember where I got the impression that he wasn't ISFJ; something in my mind has just labeled him as having a joke type displayed on his profile. I guess I had him confused with someone else.

    .....

    I don't consider myself a prude at all, though I've been told by outside observers that apparently I give off the appearance of being prude as I'm not very flirtatious or anything like that.

    Which I consider to be decidedly untrue, or at least that's what I think. I think the way I talk to woman is polite and respectful and I try to refrain from being vulgar. I'm probably just being too polite about it and coming off as asexual or something.

    I guess I'm just doing it wrong

    When I was in high school I wore great big baggy jeans, listened to loud heavy metal music and drove like a maniac behind the wheel...

    ...but was otherwise a law abiding citizen.

    I would imagine they do. I think we're the kind of people that's better suited to a long-term relationship/marriage deal as it matches our personalities.

    I think we're like any other type in this respect. Sometimes, emotionally, I have a hard time letting go but then other times it's painfully apparent to me that the way things are going are unsustainable.

    As for healing a relationship...slowly, and with a great deal of tender loving care.

    I'd love to know where you heard this because after reading some sites and things about ENTJ's, I was of the opinion that they were one of the worst matches for us. All the ENTJ women that I've read posts from in other forums seem to have a very sour view of guys like me.

    That being said, I'd prefer to have an ENTJ as a boss at work. Every captain needs a crew and you ENTJ's seem to love taking charge and I'm very comfortable in a supportive position so we seem to go well together I think. He/she is the king/queen, I'm the horse, and I'm cool with that

    I'm not surprised. JTG is pretty different from me and some of the other ISFJs. It's like a huge variation in ISFJs exists - well that's to be expected. xD

    I'm an idealistic person. But... For a while I had the motto: Hope for the best, expect the worst. Basically my friends tell me I'm rather pessimistic and cautious about life. I don't put downers on my friends optimisms however, just on my own situations.

    What are the other ISFJ motto's towards optimism/pessimism/idealism and all that stuff?
    Do they reflect a period of life?

    Well, if it's just a fictional character, I don't see why not? I'm pretty sure some ISFJ's do fit into that stereotype but not all. For instance, I am shy, traditional, and happy-go-lucky. The stereotype you described is believable though for an ISFJ.

    I'm not a perfect angel.


    Do most ISFJs marry young?
    I wouldn't be surprised if they do. Like tinker said, they're well-suited for long term relationships.

    I think so, yeah, even if we're not aware of it. Time heals all wounds.

    I don't have any real experience with them but I admire ENTJ's. I think if the ENTJ is mindful of the ISFJ's wants and the ISFJ doesn't drive the ENTJ mad with their desire for order, then I think it could be really good.

    Hey, that can happen with any type.

    Actually the ISFJs that I know have/have had an ENTJ SO or best friend now that I think about it. The attraction is definitely there. An ISFJ I know from high school has had her ENTJ boyfriend for about 5 years now; they live together now. My ISFJ great aunt's husband was an ENTJ when he was alive.
