However, she blows me away with her intuitive capacity when it comes to emotion and human relationships -- she's quite observant and navigates relationships very intuitively, and is very good at reading people and fulfilling peoples' needs, and really trying to get at them on a deep level.
Just like my ISFJ friend. In general, I think this points more towards I, than E.He does not initiate conversation - hell, I had to do it when we met & that's not my bag either. He comes across as quiet, but seems to get downright chatty once he's comfortable with you
I'm of the opinion that ones' extracurriculars don't really line up with mbti stuff easily. For example, another friend of mine, an INFJ, recently completed the IRONMAN. She's very driven by accomplishment. She did it with her ExTP husband. And I know a variety of personality types that are into the marathon/running scene - don't think this is type-driven. The key is that they each may have a different *motivation* for accomplishing it.Very active. He runs marathons, works as a personal trainer, and wakes up early every day to run an ungodly amount of miles. Seems to be driven by accomplishment, though, and constantly sets goals for himself.
I imagine certain types are more inclined to be artistic, but I don't think the art thing is a fabulous indicator of type. But for what it's worth, my ISFJ friend is really into scrapbooking, and that's her chosen artistic bent.Very artistic. His drawings are detailed, rather than flowy. They don't seem to be too abstract, either. He's also into photography & is rather good at it.
My ISFJ friend is much more expressive than I am, and seems to have a much more nurturing/giving nature than I have.Expressive with his feelings towards me, moreso than I am to him. He also enjoys taking care of me & those close to him.
The main thing he provides in the relationship is stability & security. He calls when he says he will and is very consistent in general. He's a relationship person instead of a play the field person.Both remind me of my friend; the SJ fits more w/ the first quote than SP would, I'd think.His explanations and thoughts tend to be more on the concrete side of things, but it's possible I just haven't initiated more theoretical conversations yet.
