It's all very confusing, I've only recently become into it all but the whole ISTJ thing is getting me down because I feel lost (No offence to ISTJs) but it's definitely not something I saw myself as!
Still, they are ISFPs.
I wouldn't let your boyfriend convince you of who you are or cannot be either. I mean, I've been married going on 25 years and I trust my best INTP friend more often for advice; she and I think more alike. My husband is an ENFP. He loves me but in many ways he doesn't know me as well as my best friend does.
And remember, it's about "closest" match, not exact match.
Those who get "exact" matches are usually gaming the system. In other words, they know what answers to give so they give them. Then they have their label and stick to it, but that doesn't mean it is the best fit.
Occasionally there are what I call "rank-n-file" types, clear this or that MBTI, but eh, how much room do they give themselves to grow, change, reach UP?
If ISFP feels like the best fit--not exact, but the best, don't engage in debate with your boyfriend on this. I'm sure you got other things you agree on and enjoy: So do those things. :-D
SO little update, I took the test again and got ISFP. I tried to answer it as honestly as possible, and I won't be taking it again for fear of coming out as something esle! I'm just going to let it lie (IF I CAN LOL).
I also got my Dad to take the test, because as I said he's the only one that really ever understood ANYTHING. And he's an ISFP too! Which is really cool and makes me happy.
Thanks all for your advice and information (even you Zeus lol). This has been so helpful!
I hope you'll get in contact again on any other threads I post in the future!
I'm glad you took it, were honest, and if you can keep away from the test business, will be comfortable with your match. Nice that your Dad is an ISFP too.
If you want anyone to look at a thread, you know, specific people, always do a Mention with the @ symbol and the exact spelling, spacing for the member. Otherwise, it's just chance: Maybe someone will see it who you want to hear from and maybe they won't because it's a big forum, lots of sub-forums.
Have fun! :-D
