    I love ENFPs, but hate how easily they can attach and detach themselves to/from people/places. Makes me feel that they don't really care because they don't commit fully.

    well then you all should know that you're wrong.

    every single enfp person i have known wishes to remain friends with their exes and would almost never write off a close friend....we're not the door slamming type. if we're close to you...we almost always feel close to you regardless of how many years have passed.

    so this attach/detach thing is being misread most likely.

    Well, some us may have actually experienced this, but it's not to say it's a problem across the board.

    maybe you have...but reality can only be defined by your perception...and people perceive things differently all the time...is all i'm sayin.

    You are reading it 100% wrong. Either that or you had a false view of the relationship to begin with/false expectations.

    Or maybe you're horribly insecure.

    maybe. its not exactly encouraging knowing how hard it can be - sometimes I think I would be better off not knowing about it, but then again - I probably would have given up long ago were that the case.

    interesting. because a few of the ISTJ's that I've known have this exact attitude and are "players" because they don't wish to become emotionally invested in anyone.

    My dad is an ISTJ and my mom is an ENFP. They have a great marriage that has lasted over 50 years. They got over the bumps in the road together and have reaped the benefits of hanging in there through it all. It's really pretty cute how much they still love, care for each other, tease each other, and make each other laugh. In summary ISTJ+ENFP seems to be a great combination. Best of luck to you in your relationship.

    ^That's awesome. Assuming both people are stable, I don't see how an ISTJ+ENFP pairing can't be awesome and rewarding if, like you said in your parent's case, they're determined and willing to get over the bumps and hang in there.
