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
  • worry
  • NOT need to control the relationship

ISFJs value in their partners:

  • expression of their love and appreciation
  • stick to traditions
  • responsibility
  • practicality
  • thoughtfulness
