I was...

"Guardian Portrait of the Protector (ISFJ)

We are lucky that Protectors make up as much as ten percent the population, because their primary interest is in the safety and security of those they care about - their family, their circle of friends, their students, their patients, their boss, their fellow-workers, or their employees. Protectors have an extraordinary sense of loyalty and responsibility in their makeup, and seem fulfilled in the degree they can shield others from the dirt and dangers of the world. Speculating and experimenting do not intrigue Protectors, who prefer to make do with time-honored and time-tested products and procedures rather than change to new. At work Protectors are seldom happy in situations where the rules are constantly changing, or where long-established ways of doing things are not respected. For their part, Protectors value tradition, both in the culture and in their family. Protectors believe deeply in the stability of social ranking conferred by birth, titles, offices, and credentials. And they cherish family history and enjoy caring for family property, from houses to heirlooms.

Wanting to be of service to others, Protectors find great satisfaction in assisting the downtrodden, and can deal with disability and neediness in others better than any other type. They are not as outgoing and talkative as the Provider Guardians [ESFJs], and their shyness is often misjudged as stiffness, even coldness, when in truth Protectors are warm-hearted and sympathetic, giving happily of themselves to those in need. "

Easy says I don't love easily, but when I do, I give myself completely. I'm not sure I agree.

Does this answer the original question?

ETA: Easy is ISTJ--"Guardian Portrait of the Inspector (ISTJ)

The one word that best describes Inspectors is superdependable. Whether at home or at work, Inspectors are extraordinarily persevering and dutiful, particularly when it comes to keeping an eye on the people and products they are responsible for. In their quiet way, Inspectors see to it that rules are followed, laws are respected, and standards are upheld. "

Just took two different tests online and got the same results for both. Seems I am an Idealist/Healer, or INFP.

I had written that I was an ESFJ,

but having done the full test now;
I'm an ENXJ.
The x being that I test out equal between T/F.
I tend to live life from a T perspective though.

So generally I'm an ENTJ-with moments of being an ENFJ.

Is there such a thing as a WTFF?
If there is, I'm certain there's also IWTF, which is me.

Keirsey's system is much like the Myers-Briggs. Here's how he talks about the INFP.:
