Slow you ought to give an example from your life that you think describes being a ISFP. I'd be interesting in hearing one.

I'm an ISFP, and most of that very negative description does not describe me at all. Perhaps you are describing a very very poorly adjusted ISFP.

some of the things that are described are true but others are just way off. By the way I really dont think that any of the describes careers are related to me or going to be related to me in any way possible. This has to be the worst personality type for the followin reason:disorganized, timid, easily discouraged, socially uncomfortable,second guesses self, quitter, underachiever, fears rejection in relationships, emotionally moody, sad. that to me is really bad and i hope not to think of myself as an underacheiver.if i was an underachiever why the **** would i be writing this letter or maybe i just have to much time on my hands.



over and out

I have to agree with "huh?" and "Colby." The a abundance of negative descriptions posted by sl0w_sna1l seems one sided.

I don't think I have ever met any ISFPs. Where do ISFPs congregate? They sound rather pleasant.

i'm an ISFP and that was a horrible description that is found here at this website though i do have admit a lot of my faults are listed. I found other descriptions of ISFPs that show the other side my personality type

ISFPS are the first to hear the different drummer. Many eagerly plunge into new fashions, avant garde experiences, 'hip' trends--some even setting the trends.
--comment: i have a list of five friends who wait eagerly for my cast off clothing

Organized education is difficult for the majority of ISFPs, and many drop out before finishing secondary education. Their interest can be held better through experiential learning, at which many excel. ISFPs will practice playing an instrument or honing a favored skill for hours on end, not so much as practice as for the joy of the experience.
--comment: classroom's have always been difficult for me and i did drop out of college after only two years. i'm currently quite happy in a technology development position where almost all of my skills are self-taught

the jung and mbti system combines certain traits which should not be combined in the four dichotomies, the result is that descriptions will have aspects that don't fit everyone who scores as a certain type. now if i only gave positive qualities, you would not notice that as much, but since i just give the statistical standout qualities of each type without regard to whether they are positive or negative... the problems of the jung system are potentially more glaring.

Hi Meta,

I was wondering if you could give me more information about this statement: the jung and mbti system combines certain traits which should not be combined in the four dichotomies.

Could you explain the word "should" in the context of the above sentence? Is it "should" not or "are" not. If it is "should" not, I don't understand the meaning. I was also wondering if you could tell me how these traits are formed by the combination of the two systems. If you have a link, that would be good.

Thanking you in advance,


World Man

I have to say that anybody that fits this kind of profile wouldn't live to be an adult....Because they probably would have shot themselves at some point or at the very second they read their own profile.
With all the sillyness aside... the description IS negative; however, I think it lacks context. The things listed in the profile are behavioral states rather than personality traits. At times even the most optimistic person could exhibit negativity and the most rational/cold person could show strong emotions if given the situation. It seems to me like the person or people that made the profile, looked all the way over to the far side of the spectrum...rather then take into account that everybody uses both thinking/feeling or judging/perceiving and so on. With all that being said, I feel its true that we naturally tend to lean towards one end of the seesaw...and thats why I think that this meyer briggs test gives you the jist of your personality Laughing

Now excuse me, I must go kill snake eyes :ph34r:

I think someone was joking here. If true all ISFP's would be dead or in institutions. ISFP's are the crayons of life. We bring the rainbows. Wink
