ISFPs tend to be reserved ans sensitive, and hold back their ideas and opinions except from those who they are closest to. They have an unusually deep well of caring for those who are close to them, and are likely to show their love through actions, rather than words. They are extremely perceptive and aware of others. ISFPs are keenly in tune with the way things look, taste, sound, feel and smell. They have a strong aesthetic appreciation for art, and are likely to be artists in some form, because they are unusually gifted at creating and composing things which will strongly affect the senses. The ISFPs are likely to not give themself enough credit for the things which they do extremely well. They have a strong set of values, which they strive to consistently meet in their lives.
Strength : Valuing
Continuously exploring themselves in search of who they are and what they really want in life, ISFPs manage to establish an intimate and inexplicable connection with who they really are, how they feel, what they love, and what is important to them. In addition to being authentic, they have an innate sense of what is right and wrong in any situation. This allows them to constantly act in accordance with who they are and their own code of ethics, which they respect more than anything else. In a world where keeping quiet and fading into the crowd is the simplest way to be accepted by all, ISFPs become the anchor. Without their fierce independence, the world would lose its humanity and gradually drift into injustice, cruelty, or intolerance. Acting as society’s moral compass, they inspire us to reconnect to who we really are and act for the well-being of all.
On the other hand, immature use of this strength makes its users selfish and irrational through subjectivity. Causing them to refuse to conform to universally-accepted values, and to be overly sensitive and emotional.
Developement Point : Pragmatism
ISFPs want to have power and influence in the world but often do not know how to do so. In order to protect their purely personal values from external judgements that could influence their reputation, they prefer not to talk about them and to remain discreet about them. They are uncomfortable expressing themselves because of a constant fear of bad external judgements. They are aware that, in a debate, for example, everything they say will be judged, analyzed, and that others will surely try to criticize all the arguments put forward. Consequently, they will speak only when they are sure of themselves; for example, when they have many sources to validate their argument, or not at all. This sensitivity to judgment during conversations is also on their side: they also judge what others are saying and will often be the first to ask the sources of such statements. This tendency of judgment and fear of evaluation greatly lengthens their thought processes. At work, they can quickly become demotivated in the face of a heavy workload because they know it will take a long time to get into an effective thinking process. They will never admit it, but their reputation is extremely important to them. They like people to have a good image of them. They don’t like competition or other environments where judgments are the norm because this risks their reputations. They will feel comfortable in an environment where they feel respected and are considered intelligent and successful, even if it is not necessarily the truth.
This is true unless they develop this weakness. In that case, ISFPs can be more capable than average of doing things, like running a business, for example. No matter what projects they embark on, their efficiency and courage will be such that nothing can stop them in their success, whatever their definition of success is.
ISFPs are laid back, unless their crush is around. They really want to talk to their crush and confide in them about their feelings but don’t know what to say and are afraid of being wrong. They’ll unleash the passionately rough seas of their feelings for them in a poem or drawing to make them understand the depth of their desire. Fun and romantic when comfortable.
ISFPs need someone who cares about making them feel good every day who isn’t too confrontational, and who listens to their emotional needs. They need someone who admires their creations and shows interest in them, as well as their inner world, their feelings and the vibe they communicate to others.
Once they are in a relationship, don’t confuse their shyness with a lack of deep feelings for their partner. They care very much about how their partner feels in the relationship and seek to break away from routine to make the spark between the two of them eternal. Always looking for new experiences to live and adventures to pursue. Highly sensitive and romantic, they dream of a future with their partner at their side—far from the rest— in their own paradise.
