    1) Being an ESFP, I sometimes get it confused between the two. What is the difference?

    2)If you were to mate with a type, who would you do it with? How and Why?

    3) Why do you think you are an ISFP? What the the qualities?

    4) Rate your type out of 10 on the scale of Awesomesness.

    5) What is the main goal in your life?

    6) What is life?

    Have fun!

    I have a hard time believing that "Fi" wants you to take a bath every day. You didn't answer my question as to why you believe she is ISFP.

    The ESFPs do the things that the ISFPs wish we were doing.

    2)If you were to mate with a type, who would you do it with? How and Why?
    Uhhhh..huh huh huh huh (Butthead laugh)

    Short and curvy, dude. However she was down for, because it's gooood.

    3) Why do you think you are an ISFP? What the the qualities?
    On a basic level, because almost every test says so, and most type descriptions are pretty accurate. I've never taken the "official" MBTI, but I have taken many assessments that are based on it. I am introverted, here-and-now focused, my decisions and values are very emotion-based, I care little for logic or rationale, and I am very open-ended and adaptable, not enjoying or valuing a lot of schedules or strict guidelines for things.

    4) Rate your type out of 10 on the scale of Awesomesness.
    69.

    5) What is the main goal in your life?

    6) What is life?
    You just answered your own questions:

    Have fun!

    Absolutely impossible that she's not. extreme Introverted, sensing, feeling , perceiver. I could also talk about the functions aspect. The most obvious of her's are Fi X X Te. The combination of somewhat ruthless, less developed directed cognitive approach and internal judgement based on values. Other than that, her interest in stories and boredom of ideas. Truly impossible that she's not this type....no "rocket" can change my mind about that.

    ...except, I'm confused over her demanding approach. Therefore, I have concluded that it came from her approach of what is "right" to her, the "Fi".
    A search for truth is a search for a greedy perspective.

    Nah, that's not truth. That's just your bullshit ideas of truth. Truth is always inclusive. If it's not inclusive, then toughen it up and try harder.

    Sounds more like FeSi, from what I'm reading. Si is the function concerned with material wellbeing, order, etc. Fe uses Si when it wants to decipher appropriate behaviour through past experience, observations or childhood. What you described strikes against ISFP behaviour. My ISFP girlfriend desires independence and freedom in our relationship, and so she in turn gives me these things. At most, she'll jokingly "nag" at me to finish an essay. But that's usually just an excuse to get in touch. ISFPs are too lax for didactic language. Your mother is probably an XSFJ.
    Um, yeah.

    I don't know. I test near the middle of E and I.

    2)If you were to mate with a type, who would you do it with?

    Male.

    How



    and Why?

    You mean you don't know why?

    3) Why do you think you are an ISFP?

    The descriptions sound most like me.

    What the the qualities?

    Not currently in the mood to attempt to explain MBTI.

    4) Rate your type out of 10 on the scale of Awesomesness.

    All types are 10s. (Equal Opportunity Typer. Typist?)

    5) What is the main goal in your life?

    To live.

    6) What is life?

    Life is rich.

    Did you mean

    what aspects of an ISFP make it a challenge to the ISFP, or
    what aspects of an ISFP make it a challenge to the partner?

    What is success, in a relationship?

    I was thinking the latter, but you know what, if you have knowledge on both, that would be a big help.


    Success- meaning the relationship keeps growing and progresses, and is sustainable.

    I'm sorry, I disagree. I know too well the differences between a Judger and Perceiver. It takes hours before my mother is able to choose things while shopping. My sister, on the other hand, is an ISFJ. And I can very well see the difference between the two types. The ISFJ tending to be the outspoken one. One more thing, she does not use Fe. All things she say are mostly meant to direct inwards, instead of control the dynamics of the social.

    I have concluded that it's not impossible for an ISFP to be didactic---especially at older age.

    My take, from my experience:

    ========

    An ISFP is easygoing and can adapt to a variety of traits or types as long as there's caring.

    Relationship challenges might stem from the partner appreciating having the ISFP's (a) understanding nature and (b) physical nature focused on them, but underneath, if the partner had thought about it, they really wanted or needed to be with a different kind of person.

    It's not going to work well to get into a relationship with an ISFP and then try to change them. They are not, and are not interested in becoming:

    -polished in a classic and traditional manner
    -an SJ household manager
    -a driven, corporate career person
    -only infrequently physically affectionate
    -wealth-oriented
    -prestige-oriented

    It's also not going to work well over the long term to get into a relationship with an ISFP because they seem like someone who can be dominated.

    To an ISFP, a great relationship would include equality, playfulness, sharing, and caring.

    ========

    I think it may take ISFPs a while to develop a good sense of who they are.
