I'm an INTJ female, dating ISFJ male off and on for a year.
My concern is that I've read that ISFJs have real difficulty dealing with emotional or mental stress and in fact my ISFJ will out-right DENY that he has any problems at all. However, I recently read that although they will deny these things, it tends to take a physical tole on their body. That's what I feel is happening with him. When going thru stress, he will claim that he's sick, or down with his back, and I believe he is, but is there any benefit in me introducing the idea to him that much of his physical pain is a direct result of his mental or emotional stress??
Any thoughts or opinions (especially from ISFJs) will be helpful. Thanks!
