ISFJ - The Nurturers
Pros and Cons of each Type?
Just list at least one pro and one con of each type. Of course you don't need to list every type, just the ones that affect you the most, or are the most interesting/most annoying/easiest/whatever to be.
I'd give some examples but I'm still learning to tell them apart, so excuse me : D

Hey, I hope that helped, I got as many as I could... Tried to source the ones that I could aswell.
There are many stereotypes and assumptions that can be found anywhere through a careless google search, therefore I will endeavor to offer my own experiences.
MBTI Pros; Cons
ISTJ practical; totally amoral apart from the constraints of social convention
ISTP brilliant in their technical and detailed fields of expertise; comically weak intuitive abilities
ESTP amazingly brazen; amazingly brazen
ESTJ fun to joke around with using shared T and J; George W. Bush
ISFJ usually an amazing sense of aesthetics; incredibly shallow
ISFP universally friendly; not terribly deep thinkers
ESFP (the women at least) usually disarmingly friendly and good-looking; see ISFJ ISFP cons
ESFJ Good nurturers; tendency to nag
INFJ I love them!; I would have said flawless before, but now I will say- so hard to understand
INFP charming, good friends; emotionally volatile
ENFP charming, good friends; flaky
ENFJ ???; ???
INTJ its kind of nice being able to turn off your emotions(if you are one); EVERYTHING else
INTP undeniably brilliant, intellectually persistent; their ideas are kind of out there
ENTP fun, hilarious; unreliable
ENTJ great friends/rivals; excessive need to be popular
INTP - The Thinkers
I do love having that little emotion switch, it's so good for desicion making, the whole "I'll just take a step back and look at this objectively."

Pros: Deep, emotionally complex, caring, supportive and compassionate. Highly empathic. Seized by a genuine desire to look after and help all around them. Creative thinkers and engaging company in small groups.
Cons: Deliberately enigmatic, can be too 'detached' and counselor-like, Ni comes off as 'cold' sometimes and their Fe can seem frivolous, like they just like to be liked and be seen as good people for as long as it serves them. Kinda self-absorbed when they're not trying to be all things to all men (which is another weakness in itself.) Oh, and remove them from their comfort zone and they can be real pussies.
