ISFP Personality

Introverted, Sensing, Feeling, Perceiving

This section ISFP Personality gives a basic overview of the personality type, ISFP. For more information about the ISFP type, refer to the links below or on the sidebar.

ISFPs are sensitive, considerate and kind individuals. They are unassuming and rather support and encourage others from the background, preferring to shy away from the spotlight. Those closer to them will see their more fun-loving and impulsive side. They deeply value their freedom and avoid commitments that they deem stifling to them.

"This is what I believe."

Most ISFPs are very quiet, and hence hard to read. They do hold a core set of values, and they want their outer life to be consistent with these values. However, their keen sense of reality causes them to be often disappointed. This is also why they tend to be more self-deprecating; they have ideals, but often they personally don’t meet these ideals and, therefore, feel lousy about themselves. However, trampling on the ISFPs’ values is sure way to seeing their fiery side. However, ISFPs are generally kind and considerate, thinking of others ahead of themselves.

"Let's give it a shot."

ISFPs are quiet and observant people who notice nuances with their physical senses in the environment like differences in color, sound, texture, taste, and smell. Their powers of observation extend to people as well. They are often the ones who can point out if someone is out of sorts, or feeling down when no one else notices. They apply these keen observations with their empathy to become great listeners to their peers.

ISFPs learn by doing. They dislike concepts and theories with no immediate application and prefer work that allow them to use their compassion, grace and skill. Excited by new experiences, ISFPs enjoy immersing fully in the moment and living it to the fullest. Long term goal setting does little to inspire them.

"Let's see how it goes."

ISFPs are casual, flexible and spontaneous. They like their options open and will resist most commitments. To them, freedom means to live and experience life fully without restrictions. Hence, they are unlikely to schedule their time or budget their finances unless they have been trained to do so.

"I'm just not good enough."

Their Thinking is the weakest of their mental functions. This means that under stress, their Thinking function may come out in an undeveloped or a childish manner. They may become extremely critical of themselves or those around them if they are under a lot of pressure.
