Personality Type & Relationships- ISFJ
Personality Type & Relationships
ISFJs tend to:
- be committed to their relationships
- seek monogamous, lifelong commitments
- put all of the blame on their own shoulders
- be “true blue” lovers, and may even remain faithful to their deceased partners
- be very selfless, and to put the needs of others well before their own needs
- put forth tremendous amounts of energy & time into doing what they feel is their duty
- not express their feelings until pushed to some limit, which may result in blurting out things they later wish to take back
- be highly invested in the health of their relationships, and will work very hard to make things run smoothly
- find life interesting & not easily bored
- maintain their homes with everything in it’s place
- NOT need to control the relationship
ISFJs value in their partners:
- expression of their love and appreciation
- stick to traditions
