What is it like to live in an inner world?
I noticed that when I am in love I express it through lots of physical affection, gushing compliments and verbal expressions of love. I realize that maybe all very outward of me. This is how I imagine it is best to express love for someone. But I also notice that my ISFJ boyfriend might express it in a different way. He is a lot quieter than me. I think he might express love by doing things for me like making sure I have enough oil in my car (I don't know a thing about cars and he's an aficionado) but then for special occasions, he writes me the most intensely romantic and thoughtful notes and I think, "this is what has been hiding behind his eyes?!" I LOVE IT!
Please help me to understand this ISFJ mysteriousness. What is it like to be in love when you are an ISFJ? What is it like to live in an inner world, period? Or at least, how does it compare to being so outward and external like me?
