    Just out of curiosity, what motivates a ISFJ? I find that their people pleasing is detrimental to their development or ability of succeeding in a given area especially when you help them and they do nothing with the help, whereas they tend to blame outside influences like the world being on fire and going to hell in a hand basket so why bother. I felt as though it’s an avoidance of responsibility only so that they don’t feel judged or criticized and ultimately feel like a failure in the eyes of others, so if they don’t try they don’t have to worry about being a disappointment or looking like they’re inadequate.

    Nor sure if this was supposed to go beyond 55:38 minutes but Jordan seemed to have more to say about being seasoned…

    At around 32 minutes in, she mentions Si tending to blame others because of past trauma, another way I look at this is to shirk responsibility, or not taking responsibility for one’s feelings and past behavior, view points, self imposed trauma, etc.

    The part about the need to please, tends to make my Fi cringe because looking at people pleasing through that lens, comes off as disingenuous however from learning about cognitive functions this seems to be a by product of Fe.
    Another thing that bothers me is the people pleasing comes off as emotional manipulation, and my Te hates that feeling of being manipulated because it’s not logical. I like straight shooters, just tell me or ask me what I you want or inquire about what I want so that we can negotiate or compromise. It doesn’t have to be a debate just that it needs to be fair.

    Other than that ISFJ’s are lovely people and generally easy to get along with.

    My mum would have been ISFJ and was a nurse during the WW2 years. She married a return soldier ten years older than her, and had four children. I am INFP middle girl child. I am still dealing with rigidity of my literal ten year old who was in a Catholic school learning with very scarey routines and totally indoctrinated in many things I now don’t follow. My escape was in fiction books and Saturday at the local movie theatre. Since my mum died I have learned to appreciate her style ….as a trained nurse she kept a shipshape house and three of her children went on to university and worked as professionals every day of their lives( all retired accept one). I was the odd one out, but I stayed with a basic faith in Jesus Christ . This faith is much simplified but Truth is not just My truth or the Pope truth, it is revealed( Ne) truth as trauma caused me to walk hand in hand with His way.As INFP I spend a lot of time in Si memory….and realise that trauma I have carried is based on a very very deep Fi love for my war time traumatised parents centring on my Dads PTSD only now. As a young person I rebelled against Si routine and moved around al lot, a seeker of all kinds of religions including astrology most of which I have discarded because I am so deeply embraced by my invincible, invisible Friend Jesus Christ , The Way ,Truth and the revelatory Light. This session has helped me to embrace my ten year old little girl and at the same time allow my INTUITION to grow with balance and security even if I am in my 70s.Many people say to me ,‘wow how come you remember so many experiences’.. I just thought everyone was like that. I feel like that little ten year old dreamer ( was put down for that) latching on to my new growth ( um growing up ). The newly understood Ne me sees the pattern here and pulls it all in to a narrative creative space that is amazing right now.Bless you all very richly .
