I would never cheat
Of course, as you said, there are other factors that play into it, and certainly people of all types cheat. But I think cheating would be a lot more pre-meditated for an ISJ than for an ESP, for example. I don't think ISJ's get caught up in the moment and fall into immediate temptation as often as other types.
So I don't think type has nothing to do with it, even if there are other factors.
There's a good chance that I might just physically kill myself before I do that.
I've never cheated in my life, nor do I plan to. Like the folks who posted above, I'd rather break off the relationship before moving onto someone else.
It helps that I seem to be hard-wired to respond only to the person that I'm together with. I've found that once I enter into a relationship, I don't really get interested in anyone else.
I would never cheat. It just seems so out of character and an illogical thing to do. If I am unhappy with the relationship I am in, then I would break it and move on. If not, then I don't see any reasons to be cheating on someone.
Of course, it also depends on many other factors. Moral values, making decisions on impulses, fleshly desires, etc. I can also see why Si would influence this- since we would likely stick to our guns than wander around in someone else's teritory.
We feel this way, finding cheating repugnant because we are ISXJ's and rate loyalty very high. We also tend to be traditional in our POV and traditionally, cheating is viewed unfavorably by society. So holding cheating in low regard comes naturally to us for these positive reasons.
We get stuck in no win relationships refusing to leave them because we are afraid. We are afraid of the unknown, finding it more comfortable to deal with the demons with which we are familiar as opposed to the demons that we have not yet met.
So our loyalty gets us there and our fear and tendency to cling to the known keeps us there.
