ISFPs live in a world of amazing possibilities. The are very observant to the appearance, taste, sound, feel, smell of objects. They appreciate art, and are probably an artist of some form, because they can create things that strongly affect their senses. ISFPs have a strong set of values. The life of an ISFP is in accordance to their values - they do what they feel is right, and refuses to do things that contradicts them.
An ISFP is likely to choose a job that would allow them to work towards their goals.
ISFPs are quiet and reserved people. They are difficult to know well, for they don’t express their opinions except to people closest to them. They are kind gentle and sensitive to their actions on other people, and will put in great effort to accomplish tasks that seems important to them.
ISFPs love nature and animals. They are original and independent. An ISFP needs personal space. ISFPs will appreciate people who would spend time to understand them and support them in accomplishing their goals in their own unique ways. To others, they might see the ISFP’s behavior as light-heartedness, but ISFPs actually take life very seriously, constantly shifting information through their value systems, and trying to look for clarification.
ISFPs are usually the "doers". The learn best in a “hands-on” environment, and dislike being restricted by logic, rules, and traditional teaching methods, where abstract thinking is emphasized. They are usually uncomfortable with theorizing concepts and ideas, unless there is a practical application, and dislike impersonal analysis. Their strong value systems demand that decisions are evaluated against their subjective beliefs, rather than against some objective rules or laws.
ISFPs are extremely sensitive and aware of others. They gather up information about others, and think over what it means. Usually, an ISFPs view of others is surprisingly accurate.
ISFPs are caring and understanding. They naturally care for others, and have a sense of duty to please others. To their close ones, they are extremely caring, and they usually show their love for them through actions, rather than words.
ISFPs have no desire to lead or control others, as they dislike being leaded or controlled by others. They need personal space and time to evaluate their circumstances in life against their value systems, and are likely to respect others needs for the same.
ISFPs’ value systems can cause them to be perfectionists and become very harsh on themselves. They should learn to give themselves enough credit on what they did extremely well.
ISFPs are very gifted in artistic creation and selfless service. Life probably won’t be easy for them because they take life seriously, but they have what they need to make their lives and the lives of their close ones a rewarding experience.
