I met this ISFP girl recently... she's very secret about everything. Complicated and hard to understand. She can seem deceptively extraverted at times.


This sounds mostly accurate.... this could have been said about me. I'm not necessarily secretive about everything, though.. especially once a person gets to know me. I'm actually VERY open with the people that I feel comfortable with.

Complicated, hard to understand, deceptively extraverted.... yeah, those are accurate.

Wow, I recently took the test on this website again and got ISFP. I was exactly 50% on both the T and the F. The description for the ISFP fits me almost perfectly though. I am not much of an artist.

some- especially those who are ISFP's- see weakness in the personality while reading it and see all the bad qualities (laziness, living in the moment, ect). now, as an ENTJ, i would like to challenge that.

my girlfriend is an ISFP (sometimes switches to an ISTJ but thats besides the point), and we have a VERY successful relationship. you ISFP's are pleasant to be around, which can make a person feel happier, which makes a big difference in a person's life.

ISFP's have a strong sense for pleasure--- they are driven to it --- and that is mostly what they seek. when becoming aware of this drive, they can use it to thier advantage. For example, a business. AN ISFP can decorate a business to look very "pretty" and "kind" and "pleasant" because they are aware of what feels pleasant., now, most people are psychologically attracted to this- leading customers to the business. then before you know it..... BOOM! the business gets flooded with customers!!!!!! WOW!!! no decorative job could better be done by the ISFP.

unfortunately, many ISFP's currently have a low self-image. do not fear, because a low self image can change into a high self image very quickly. by feeling good about yourself, your environment can work towards your advantage and you can be a stud!!! (example: Britney Spears. she was an ISFP who was confident in her singing ability--- look what happened to her).


ISFP'S--- LET ME LEAVE YOU ON THIS FINAL NOTE=

-become aware and appreciate your good qualities. that can bring you greater pleasure than you may think...

Yeah, she married K-Fed, had kids with the guy, went bald, and has a strained relationship with her mother. That's a great example for ISFPs to follow. Rolling Eyes

I hate to be negative (especially since I do agree that ISFPs need to be more confident in themselves), but I don't think Britney Spears is a very good example (plus Niednagel has typed her as an ESFP).

ISFPs do make great basketball players though . . . D-Wade, Kobe, Tim Duncan, Paul Pierce . . . Heck, you could make an All-Star Team just with ISFPs.

This accurately describes me....although my T and F keep swaying very frequently...rahh! this confounds me to the point of anger...

Isfp is great! A friend of mine is an isfp and she is always happy and has a great sense of humor. She can make people laugh, it´s great to be around her.

I'm an ISFP.

I find that I'm usually trying to mask who I am, and how I feel, as so I don't get hurt. I figure, if I don't let people know how I feel, then they won't find it as a 'fault'... I'm such a wuss. >.<

I've also found that all the times I've done the Myers Briggs test (I've done it 3 times - twice at uni and once at high school), I always get the same result.

I always think that there is someone 'better' out there, at anything I do. I also really really ;really; hate arguments, and people that try to tell me that i'm doing things the right way or the wrong way. I feel like I'm rather stupid most of the time, but though, I think that may have something to do with the fact that I'm spacing out when I really should be listening.

I find that being by myself is far more easier than being out and about, interacting with people.

I really do agree with Guest above - their post really strikes a chord in me, its spooky. Smile


You know, I have never met another ISFP in real life before- ever. I always thought I was just odd in soceity, but reading your thoughts was like reading my own.
I couldn't have put it better myself.

I'm not sure where ISFP's would congegrate, I don't think we tend to generally. We are more lone types even though we always appreciate friends we have and show it through our actions.

I can really empathise with being the "happy, jokey friend" since I truly fall into that perfectly. My mind is always whirring like mad with weird thoughts and I'm hardly the happiest person in the world- but talking about my problems bugs me, I can deal with it myself- talking never does anything for me. Despite the self-inadequecy all us ISFP feel, I have to say the one thing I like about myself is my sense of humour. I can usually make anyone laugh, whether its acting the fool, being witty or making awful pun jokes (my favourites!).

I feel we are the most misunderstood, because even though I can not claim it for all ISFPs, I know I at least rely too much on actions and expect people to understand me through them.
The best example is with me and my text book ENFP friend. I hate voicing aloud my issues, but she insists on it (an N thing most likely)- but I still get really annoyed when she doesnt pick up on what I'm feeling. She will tell you when she's upset and make it perfectly clear, but Im always happy and acting the fool and she feels insulted that I won't share my inner thoughts with her. I get the impression ENFP's and ISFPs dont mix well ordinarily. This might just be my experiences though.

Another thing I've noticed on being an ISFP- the not abiding to social norms thing, doing our own thing issue. Doesn't mean we are all wacky and obviously weird on sight people. I have a fashion sense that people would see as normal but its not because I want to be normal, rather that its just what I like. Purposely going against the norm annoys me as much as going with it.
The animal and children thing is bang on the mark though- my love for animals has always been with me and always will, and I prefer children to adults. They are not bound by strict schedules in their minds, and do their own thing- something ISFPs can relate to I feel.
