Anyway, there are a lot of different points of view on voting, and a lot of different reasons for the underlying tendencies. I don't believe it is the SJ in particular that would measure the OP's boyfriend's willingness to vote neo-con. More likely to be dominantly T, if anything, then S for the anti-liberal portion and J for the pro-conservative portion. Combined, T and J for SDO, and maybe STJ for any right wing authority preferences.
The reason to segment them is because, as people have noted in the thread, it isn't a single faceted issue. It's only when the tendencies combine together that it becomes strongly expressed as a result of underlying preferences.
That means that not even a majority of SJs would fall into these categories, just enough to be statistically significant - more than the general population.
Good points to think about all around. I've heard about studies that "showed" that the brains of "liberals" and "conservatives" use different parts when thinking about politics, and I thought it might be J vs. P at its root.
I had a thought specifically about this thread topic earlier in the day, but I can't remember what it was...
To return to the OP, I'm in a somewhat similar situation as an INFP dating an ESTJ (don't ask me how that happened), so I can relate to this. I am madly in love with him and wouldn't change him for anything, but I still get slightly frustrated at times. It doesn't help that he's a good deal older so we're in some ways seeing the world from the vantage of different generations.
The strangest part for me is how when it comes to certain issues I (supposedly the emotion-driven, idealistic type) am almost more rational than he is (the rational thinking judging type)! I am at least willing to consider that the other side might be just as valid as mine and that our differences might lie in upbringing and our ways of interpreting information, but for him there's always a right and a wrong, usually already decided in his mind.
The result of this is that I have spent the last 6 months (about as long as I've known him) in a state of serious ideological turmoil questioning what I was raised to believe (thanks to him), which he thinks is attributable to my lack of religious direction and "grounding" in the "right" beliefs! What I'm wondering is whether this crusade to improve me will always exist or if it's possible for SJ's to accept another's differences.
