INTJ ISFJ Compatibility
The INTJ and ISFJ relationship have some good things going for it. The ISFJ can provide an emotional base for the INTJ who often goes about life avoiding feelings in general whereas the ISFJ can’t help but show theirs. The ISFJ is a dutiful people pleaser who willingly give of themselves in a self-sacrificing way. If this is not appreciated however, they will feel deeply hurt and they will need words of affirmation and support to recover.
The INTJ will likely appreciate the ISFJ’s responsible nature and also their commitment to high standards and reliability. The INTJ shares similar qualities including their preference for quietly working on projects instead of excessive social interaction. Living with the ISFJ might be very easy but when it comes to conversation, these two may speak very different languages. ISFJs do not share the INTJ’s interest in abstract ideas and things that have no direct relevance to their lives.
On the other hand, INTJs do not care for a lot of the subject matter that ISFJs like to discuss such as talk about other people’s lives or redecorating the bathroom. INTJs prefer a partner with whom they can connect mentally and talk about meaningful, inspiring topics. If an INTJ tries to talk about the potential advantages of living on Venus instead of Mars, the ISFJ may smile and nod but really they just want to get back to folding the laundry.
INTJ ISFJ Relationship Problems
ISFJs are very sensitive and they may be easily offended by some of the more callous and tactless language INTJs may employ especially when under stress. The INTJ may at times be critical of the ISFJ and of the way they do things. Their input may be taken as an affront to the ISFJ and be a source of irritation for them. The ISFJ may be too sensitive and emotional for the INTJ and it will take some effort to work through this.
