As far as our relationship went, I wanted his approval on everything I did, because I seen him as some kind of hero. He told me what I did wrong in everything, but also what I did right. We're quiet, too, but it's not a bad quiet.
same. reversed. My mum's an ISTJ, I'm an INFJ.
same with @Bit, she notices everything I do wrong.. but I find it's sometimes very overbearing. Things I do right, she sees but doesn't boast me up. I don't find it as a motivation like he does. It's self-deprecating, but perhaps I need that.. you know? keep my two feet on the ground. Be consistently humble. I find it a difficult relationship, the two as a dual.. I mean, to start off, our functions are completely different ~[Si, Te, Fi, Ne] vs. [Ni, Fe, Ti, Se]. Communication is impaired.. so there's little room for understanding, or it's not particularly easy. But hey, I reckon this is good for the long run.. prepares you for what's out there. In socionics terms, it's called relations of super-ego. It's about impressing each other more or less.
