The Pros And Cons Of Falling In Love With Him, Based On His Personality Type
Love

Personality types play a role in who we interact with, especially in our personal lives. Falling in love is one of the things that people do unintentionally and blindly. It's often only after we fall in love do some people tend to see the bad personality traits in their significant others and it's harder to decide whether or not to stay in the relationship.

Having an overall view of each Myers Briggs personality type and what it would be like falling in love with them gives you a general idea of what you might get yourself into with your guy.

The 16 personality types were created by Isabel Briggs Myers and Katherine Cook Briggs and built on the early work of Carl Jung.

1. ISTJ​

Pros: The best part about falling in love with ISTJ guys is their loyalty. You won’t ever have to worry about them leaving you because they will always be beside you. They are also known to be serious and truly committed to their relationships.

Cons: Although they might make excellent partners, if your guy is an ISTJ then you should be concerned about his one-track mind. He is a traditional person so he’ll be following the rules as they are, which can make the relationship stuffy and dull. Their introvert approach can also make you think that they are being cold and distant to you when they might just want to keep to themselves.
