My boyfriend and I have been dating for 9 months, and I love him dearly.
Interestingly enough, he is an ISTJ and I am an INTP. I fit the INTP pretty well in that I think very much in the abstract, am the "absent-minded professor", and like to tackle abstract problems to help keep my mind sharp.
My boyfriend is very much an ISTJ. He is traditional, family-oriented, wants to work in corporate law, is on-task/on-point, aware etc etc.
I keep seeing people really down this pairing and I have to say that this is the happiest I've been with another human being. Granted, the fact that we can't have intellectual conversations drives me nuts (he says, "Why even think about that stuff??"), but he complements me well in every day life, has the same offbeat humor/quirkiness, and balances me out.
My main question is: Do ISTJs think about things like God, Reason, and Faith? Abstract concepts, that is? Is there any point in trying to find out what he thinks about these things? If so, how?
