ISFJs displayed a strong preference for quality time as their love language of choice. They also reported moderate preferences for words of affirmation, acts of service and physical touch.
As a grounded, introverted sensing dominant type, it fits that ISFJs see time as one of their greatest assets – and one of their greatest means of harmonizing with loved ones.
To love an ISFJ, set time aside specifically to spend around them and partake in the activities that they enjoy. This type wants to be involved in the lives of their loved ones and vice versa – so taking an interest in what they’re interested in means a great deal to them. Make sure you are also verbally expressing your love for your ISFJ – this type relishes in hearing that they are loved and appreciated on a regular basis. Also, try to relieve them of the odd chore or responsibility – they are likely going out of their way to do so for you (without you even noticing) on a regular basis, so they appreciate the reciprocation. Last but not least, show them acts of physical affection whenever possible – they love being hugged and held.
To receive love from an ISFJ, let them become a part of your day-to-day life and welcome their participation in your favourite activities. They show their love through harmonizing – that is, by expressing interest in what you’re interested in! Also be open to hearing “I love you,” on a regular basis – they love reminding others that they care about them deeply. Watch for little favours the ISFJ is doing for you – make sure to acknowledge and appreciate them, as they are the ISFJ’s little ways of saying ‘I love you.’
