These individuals crave security and are always looking for ways to make their lives more dependable and solid.
This person brings a rational approach to almost every situation, and that includes romantic endeavors.
They are unlikely to pursue a relationship with someone that they feel is too much their polar opposite, although this type of relationship pairing is not completely unheard-of with ISTJ personalities.
This character is not necessarily the most demonstrative and expressive when it comes to dating and relationships, but they tend to care a great deal, inwardly, when it comes to honor, responsibility, keeping promises, and loyalty to those they love.
This persona is often viewed as a serious and reserved individual.
ISTJ relationships often start out very conservative.
“Duty fulfillers” aren’t big fans of grand or mushy displays of affection and can sometimes be uncomfortable with public displays of affection, especially in the early stage of a relationship.The “duty filler” may seem like a strict and boring individual but they also tend to have a quirky sense of humor that most people around them appreciate, especially friends, family members, and acquaintances.This specific persona suffers from the classic struggle of recognizing their own feelings and will find even more difficulty conveying their feelings to others.These extravert personalities will have more skill at gently getting under the many folds within the “duty fulfiller’s” personality.Their personable character makes them easy to talk to which is a bonus where introverts are concerned.That being said, ISTJs can “relax” a bit more around those that they really care about and can learn to overcome habitual obstacles in order to have a healthy and successful relationship.
