You almost have to read between the lines to see the real meaning in the ISFJ side....and I think they in turn sometimes do read between the lines and find a alternate meaning in the INTJ side. :P
    This destroyed a "friendship" I had a few years ago with an ESFJ.

    She would say things that would mean to be read into, whereas I took what she said for face value. And then she would get upset and not talk to me for weeks at a time while I had no idea what was going on. And vice versa, where I would say something that I meant for her to take for face value and she would then read into what I said and misinterpret it.

    My one friend now is an INTP. We get along very well, even though I only get in touch with her about once a week. We don't get offended at eachother at all.

    2 INTJs and an ISFJ are watching TV.

    ISFJ: (confused by plot development) Why is he quitting?
    INTJ 1: Because...
    INTJ 2: Events...
    ISFJ: (waits for an expansion that does not come)

    Over hearing a conversation on the train:
    (Paraphrased slightly)

    Girl 1: Too bad he's not gay.
    Girl 2: I know! He dresses gay though, with the scarf.

    Me: *facepalm*

    This happens all the time with me and ESTJs. So frustrating.

    INTJ: On a scale of 1-10, how attractive do you consider yourself?

    ENFP: 7.5, probably. Uhhh my face is asymetrical. the space in my teeth. scars on my back. and I'm not as defined as i'd like to be. and my nose is slightly crooked and it irks me.

    INTP: Get someone to break it and then put it back normally.

    ISTP: I could do it. I could punch you in the nose.

    Person I could or not know who I'm not interested in talking to: Hi! How are you?
    Me: Fine.
    Person I could know or not know who I'm not interested in talking to: Me too
    Me: That's good..
    ....

    INTJ Friend: Hello
    Me: Hello, how are you?
    INTJ F: Fine, hey- do you know Hitler's love story?
    <40 minutes later>
    INTJ F: I want this to be written on my tombstone:
    "I died and all I got was this lousy tombstone."
    "User was banned"
    "Respawn in 5...4...3...2..."
    "You know when they tell you not to try this at home?"
    "Suck it"
    "The person you have reached is currently out of service."
    Me: lol
    "Please come back in three days"
    INTJ F: /life

    Here is one from today:


    ISFJ: X's house was broken into yesterday and they stole her TV. I'm sure she'll want to move now, which is such a pity cause her house is so perfect.

    Me: Does she have an alarm?

    ISFJ: I don't think so. Plenty of people over there don't have them. I'm sure she'll end up moving.

    Me: Or she could just get an alarm...

    ISFJ: But she won't want to live there now that someone's broken in. Especially because she's elderly and alone.

    Me: But she is no more or less likely to get broken into when she moves than she is now.

    ISFJ: It's awful and she's older and has to live by herself. I'm sure she'll move.

    Me: She'll still be living by herself if she moves...

    ISFJ: I can't talk to you. Why are you so difficult to talk to?

    There's an ISFJ girl back at school that has liked me for way too long. I've tried to be INCREDIBLY straightforward with her telling her that I didn't like her any more than a friend. Yet, I think in her mind, it COULD still happen.

    Point is, we have conversations like this one ALL THE TIME hahahaha.

    Conversation with ESFJ aunt:

    Me: I download movies, save them on my external hard drive, then delete them on my computer. If anyone calls me all suspicious, I'll just say "yeah, I felt like it was wrong, so I deleted from my computer right away, I didn't even watch it."

    Aunt: (Dramatic gasp) But yannibos, that is illegal! You can go to jail for a very long time. Oh my gosh you're so unethical!

    Me: If you're stupid about it, you might get caught, but I'm pretty sure you're more likely to win the lottery.

    Aunt: Yannibos, you should really consider taking a class in ethics. I think it'll do you good.

    She's a teacher.

    (Talking to my ISTJ dad)

    Me: Everyone has Marx all wrong. He doesn't necessarily say communism is the way to go, but rather that we are heading in that direction. After capitalism comes socialism. I personally think we'd be better off that way, anyway.

    My dad: OK, but you see China and Russia? The people lived like hell there.

    Me: That wasn't the type of communism Marx speaks of. We live in a country where we are all prostitutes, and the constant pursuit of money and taking advantage of people is everywhere, but the up and ups (the bourgeois) make it seem like we can become one of them (I'm getting rather ranty now). Then, right when you're about to get to that level, they move it up again. It's wrong, and people are like whorish sheep, blindly following what their pimps tell them to do.

    Dad: My son, you have so much to learn about the world.

    Me: Dad, I don't expect you to understand. Nobody does. That's why the system is always going to be like this. "Working class unite, all you have to lose are your chains." Sound familiar?

    Younger ESTP brother: (Laughing and clearly not understanding at all) You should just become a monk then. You should want to get as much money as you can. That's how you put food on the table.

    Me: Hahaha OK, Chris.
