    No.

    Well, at least my mother is not. Then again, considering she had to clean up baby shit for two children and take care of whatever they got into, that's no surprise.

    I, however, am extremely squeamish. And I wasn't too squeamish until 14. I'm not sure if this is because before then, things simply weren't that bad, or were just below my notice, but I've also heard that certain phobias like to cement themselves in their early teens...

    Then again, just thinking cows are cute does not stop me from eating them. They're just too damn tasty.

    Would you eat cat or dog meat if it was readily available and delicious?

    Not rhetorical, I'm actually curious.

    I think food when I see squirrels and rabbits. There's this one that shows up on my lawn all the time and I start thinking about all the ways I could cook it. Then I start to drool and the rabbit takes off like it knows what I'm thinking. Does that make me not an F?

    I guess I'm squeamish but I don't think it's so much because it's gross but moreso because i"m really uncomfortable with the thought of people or animals being hurt. The same with senseless violence. And bugs are yucky too. Oh and really dirty and/or smelly stuff. Eww.

    So I'm guessing you don't find the "Baby seal walks into a club..." joke particularly funny at all?
    Um, yeah.

    Haha... I have a T-shirt with the sloga "I (club shape like in playing cards) baby seals" on it. My sister hates it, which naturally means I go to great pains to have it clean and ironed for when I'm expecting her to visit

    I don't know if it's so much squeamishness or, well, with her it seems like she's just scared of SO MANY THINGS. Seems to just live her life on a level of anxiety that's totally alien to me. She isn't mentally ill at all, has no sorta issues like that in general, just I tend to find her very ...well like she looks at life like a deer in the headlights or something...

    I came across this about ISFJ's from this website:

    follows the rules, polite, fears drawing attention to self, dislikes competition, somewhat easily frightened, easily offended, timid, dutiful, private, lower energy, finisher, organized, socially uncomfortable, modest, not confrontational, easily hurt, observer, prone to crying, not spontaneous, does not appreciate strangeness - intolerant to differences, apprehensive, clean, planner, prone to confusion, afraid of many things, responsible, guarded, avoidant, anxious, cautious, suspicious, more interested in relationships and family than intellectual pursuits, not adventurous, fears doing the wrong thing, dislikes change
    Now I can see as can you all probably, how this was obviously written by an anti-S and probably anti-F biased author and misses out all the good qualities whilst magnifying possible bad ones. HOWEVER, seeing the general thread running through it of fearfulness and anxiety, I have to say it does ring true with my experience of my ISFJ sister...

    If I hated you, I would tell you so.

    Yes.

    But cat meat doesn't seem like it would be particularly delicious, for some reason...

    I would most definitely give it a try and if it tasted good then yeah, it'd become a part of my diet. I honestly see no logical reason why not. Unless there were some scientific reason, if it were proven to be bad for the health in some way or whatever. But not just on the basis that cats and dogs are cute. I mean I grew up on a farm where we had chickens and goats and stuff, and when i was a kid, while those animals were alive, I played with them, petted them etc, but I had no problem with it when they arrived on my dinner plate and just chowed down lol

    -----

    Thinking also about another ISFJ I know, who also gives off an impression of general fearfulness, example: she won't cook meat, because she's afraid that she might do it wrong and end up being poisoned by it not being cooked properly. And if you cook meat for her, she'll be prodding at it and checking if it's properly cooked and quizzing you about how many minutes exactly you had it on the grill for, when you turned it, etc....

    My ISFJ friend isn't squeamish at all, she works with nature, infact once she was doing up someones garden whilst I was standing on the sidelines refusing to help because I might touch a worm or someone other bug, and I have seen her deal with a really nasty wound on someone else that made me squeamish.
