Don't feel bad. We ISFJs have a tendency to over-worry about all of this kind of stuff. The next time you see your friend, just ask them if they had a problem with the joke. If they did, just apologize for it and say you didn't mean it that way or didn't think about it. If they didn't, then you have nothing to worry about.

Until then, try not to think about it or worry about it, because you could just be over-worrying over nothing. I've done this I don't know how many times.

I know this advice is much easier said than done. But I think it makes ISFJs happier if we can do this.

Wrote this last night after watching 8 1/2 . I try to free-write after watching movies, get down my thoughts, my actual thoughts on it. so here it is: (spoilers for 8 1/2 and I'm Not There)

Eight and one half quarter eights. Whata fiolm. Film flimsy. It was quite awesome I must say. I truly believe in it. Well I identified, I think the director guido started coming to these conclusions, and his marriage almost ruined hm possibly. I mean the film had a lot to do with Im not there. Which is cool I know that before going in but I recognized more than I knew about before. I mean the opening is obvious. Its all the blanchett parts. His wife, looks like her as Dylan. Is Dylan an Italian Woman? Or like married to some sort of cosmic idea of life and death or whatever. It was interesting, I would like to see it again. We’ll see. I mean Dylan hmm, even the end where he ‘kills’ himself is like when Dylan opens fire on the crowed only to belt out Maggie’s Farm like no tomorrow. Its strange. What else was there. His woman women. What a SCAPEGOAT nine… its like 8 ½ only 9… Anyways that’s intense. I mean serious. I like the film, why remake it>? I liked the trailer for nine, but now I don’t really care. I mean great you just copied a movie that’s been hailed as great. Good job. I mean I started to wonder if his dreams and stuff WERE his movie. I mean they basically were… I mean BASICALLY except he didn’t even have a film. The people interviewing him were like Im not there too. It was so cool. Its like Dylan was there. Somewhere in Italy he was walking around and doing drugs with the beatles. Maybe that was it. Unless he was the director? His imagination perhaps? His tall stories or whatever? Could be. Im not sure. Its like 8 ½ was the original surreal film, and Im Not There was a part of it. Kind of connected. Very strange. He realizes that he is in love with all of them and maybe he didn’t think it was love before? He repressed it all because the catholic beliefs and stuff. The stigma of society. Strange. I mean tuco woke up in the night and was barking lol . but he made it, he didn’t even want out, just night terror on that poor dog. I like the imagery in the movie. So many cool pictures, and his sunglasses were slick. It was like vivre sa vie as well with the lack of sound and distant sound and stuff weird. It was not French, it was Italian, maybe that’s why it was hard to read it sometimes. I mean, they spoke really fast. Sometimes I didn’t catch it all. Background noise? Kind of. To guido that was probably it. Weird. Anyways yayay so awesome all the dreams and stuff and falling down the hole and stuff. Where was he. He was making a fake film. Takes balls. I mean serious. He almost pulled it of, but it was too much, he achieved what he wanted to with the film, without making the film to achieve peace with himself where he felt guilt and such before. He made it. He was alive. And his wife looked too much like blanchetts Dylan. Weird. But I mean what else is there. That other girl kind of looked like Cate Blanchett. I loved some of the quotes too. I loved it when he hung his assistant dude. I mean serious. Whatever, he was making the fake film with the screentests which were the film cool stuff sir cool stuff indeed. I guess I should watch more of his movies, I can see how he uses dreams for the inspiration for his films. It was so disjointed at times. But I dug it

I know I'm not an ISFJ but has anyone told you guys you guys can be awfully a lot like ISTJ? It just occur to me today how hard it is to differentiate between ISTJ and ISFJ. This is mostly due to the Fe/Fi function imo.

Yeah, ISFJs and ISTJs have a lot in common since we both share dominant Si and inferior Ne. There have been a few threads on this, but I don't remember where they and I'm too lazy to dig them up. :tongue:


But especially since I'm male, a lot of people tend to think I'm an ISTJ. I can be pretty guarded with my emotions IRL, but I'm very sensitive on the inside.

Heh heh you guys are like the INTP/INTJ. What makes it hard is how you guard your emotions. It takes awhile to see through.

I have an ISTJ mother, so I can tell a huge difference between her and myself. I think it's the ISxJ part that gets people because we do everything in a similar manner. The way we consider things, treat people, and face the world is fairly different though.

ISTJ and ISFJ share pretty much the same functions except for the Fi/Fe. Being introverted ISFJ tend to be quiet and can be cold like Fi. However, you guys are more loving and caring under certain circumstances. It's tricky really because you guys also seems to have that "why don't you just get it?" at the same time you care. Ah sorry for mumbling, it's hard for me to put into words. I do have an ISFJ mother whom I mistaken as an ISTJ for awhile.

I'm selling something on Ebay for the first time and every day I'm questioning if I'm doing this right. Should I up the price, lower the price, Post more pictures, leave friendly messages for people, or hide, blah blah blah. Why do I have to question everything?

Fretting the new experience? If it's something new, I worry all the time myself. Just keep at it! Inferior Ne could be why too, but I talk about that way too much...it's like the new satanic panic in my life. I hope I don't use it as a crutch too much. :blushed:

I bought a lot of stuff today including the first album I bought when I was in fourth grade (for the fourth time). Beck- "Odelay" featuring Beck's second most famous song, "Where's it At?". My favorite track though is "Jackass" and maybe these rap songs too.

Ive been thinking about how the human mind must both accept and deny death to function with any happiness in life.

Once a person has accepted that they will meet an end, (as all things in our little biosphere must), life becomes much richer to me.

However a bit of healthy denial as to what goes on after death also seems to serve a purpose in driving us with hope. Jung himself said of eldery patients that he treated:

Well you see, I have treated many old people and it is quite interesting to watch what the unconscious is doing with the fact that it is apparantly facing a complete end. It...disregards it. Life behaves as if it were going on, and so I think it is better for old people to live on, to look forward to the next day, as if he had to spend centuries, and then he lives properly.

Of course, it is quite obvious that we are all going to die and this is the sad finale of everything; but nevertheless, there is something in us that doesn't believe it, apparantly.

That makes sense. I know that despite being an ISFJ, I tend to have an underlying ISTJ mentality sometimes. I still think it comes from hanging around with my sister(INTP).

Just watched "Stardust Memories" spoilers ahead:

I wrote a free write, and Im pretty ecstatic about this film. I will definitely post in the movie thread. But for now I'll just post my free write. I feel I should get some sleep its 1:00am, not tired from the coffee but still >>

“In the end, all there is… is music” totally what I thought

It’s gotten to the point where all I can say is “I really liked it!. It was so awesome” blah blah. Almost anyways, I mean, at least in these free writes. But I can normally glean some stuff after and during watching. I mean. Woody Allen. You know what youre talking about sir! So many… I mean SO MANY great lines. Loved the bit about the ending of his movie, how they were gonna change it, and they wanted it all happy go lucky for the easter watchers. Jesus, Woody knew his vision. He wanted to make an honest film, like fellini. He did. Those aliens too! Awesome man awesome. They were all “We like your funny movies” they said a few things I forget, how crazy he was sticking around that basket case lady. I got kind of confused. I guess there were 3 loves. I thought there were only two.. maybe Im mistaken. Either way I loved it. I need more Woody Allen films. I mean… jesus, better than Play it again, even though that one was da bomb too… both about film and stuff. He was more collected in Stardust though… which is odd for Allen. But serious. Did I like it more than 8 ½. Maybe maybe not, I lover both though, whatever, very profound. VERY. What else was it. Oh yeah more Im Not there. WHO THE HELL IS JACK ROLLINGS. That’s what I wanna know. Loved the Aviator song.. was that Stardust? I think so. Louis. Wow you play beautiful music sir. Wish I knew you. Maybe I did haha. But serious. I love the song “What a Wonderful World” but… I think you outdid yourself… You play beautifully. And I don’t think people give you the credit you deserve… I don’t think they did, and I don’t think they ever will. I am sorry Louis… Truly. And I think Woody is too. He’s sorry he’s stuck as a comedian. He’s seriously funny, but I love the truth he can provide. Awesome.

im wondering how i can get my husband to realize on his own that when he says things in a mean way, that it bothers me and causes much more drama and stress for me than saying them in a nice way which wouldnt take much effort on his part. Oh and also to stop saying things and then changing his mind at the last second. Sometimes it just makes me a wreck.

Idk i agree with @Eluquise it can seem like we are completely different (ISFJ/ISTJ) much of the time. Its amazing really.

Just a brief stream of consciousness writing here, compared to some I've written on other forums. I throw out commas and general organization when I write these.

I haven't hung out with any of my non-neighbor friends all week. I've only received 3 texts in the last 5 days. I feel a bit lonely. I'll probably clean my room tomorrow finally, after looking at it for a month now. A ton of my stuff is in my basement from my dorm room, and I haven't been wearing many different clothes because I haven't put my clothes back in my dresser yet because my dresser is blocked by crap. I have a lot of pillows in my room. My dorm room was so much bigger than my room here, especially considering the loft bed there. Gahhh, I hope I get a job soon, even though I'll be a burden to whoever has to take me to work. I wish I would have been a normal teen and gotten my license as soon as I could have, as well as a job. If I'd done those things, I'd probably already have a job and possibly a car. Having a car means more socializing. I don't know if I'll make it to a memorial thing for a classmate/friend who committed suicide just under a year ago on the night before graduation because I don't have a ride and I don't really feel like asking for one. If I knew how the buses here worked, I'd consider that, but I don't want to figure things out, and I don't want to have my brother come with me or anything. Hmmph. Maybe someone will ask if I'm going though and see if I need a ride. I can only hope. Otherwise, I must motivate myself to clean tomorrow. One of the first things I clean should be my bookshelf so I have space for my stereo again, which will make the rest of the cleaning more bearable. Maybe I'll take the little neighbor kids on the walk they've been wanting to go on tomorrow. They've been bugging me about it for weeks, and I feel bad because I haven't taken them, but I haven't been making up excuses. They probably think I just don't want to take them, but I've been waiting for when we'll have enough time to go and enjoy it instead of powerwalking about. I'll follow through though.
