Are ISFjs bad at keeping in touch with friends? Or, maybe I should phrase it differently. If, for whatever reason, one falls out of touch with an ISFj, is it hard to get back into their circle of friends? Is proximity everything, or what?
I had two best friends growing up who were both ESI, and one of them was even in my wedding and they've both disappeared. Being an introvert myself doesn't help things as I don't reach out much. But on the occasions that I have, I've received a lukewarm response. As if to say they've moved on and don't consider me a friend anymore OR that it would take more than just a "hey how are you" for them to open up to me now. Like I have to start all over again. I tend to think "once friends always friends" even if you don't live in the same city or go without talking for decades. Is that crazy? It could just be these two individuals but I'm wondering if it's type related. Any thoughts from ESIs or those who know them?
