May ISFPs tell the story

ISFP personality type

ISFP: Introvert - Senser - Feeler - Perceiver

  • Introverts (= I.ntroverts) tend to be thoughtful, reserved and a lot alone. A common misconception is that introverts are shy - this is not necessarily the case. They get their energy from their own thoughts and the time they spend alone. Introverts don't always need people around them.
  • Perceiver (= S.ensors) live in the present. You rely on facts, deal well with practical things and like it when things are concrete and measurable.
  • Feeler (= F.eelers) let their feelings and emotions play a leading role because they care about other people.
  • Perceiving (= P.erceivers) prefer a lifestyle that is spontaneous, flexible and adaptable. They like an unstructured environment and like to keep their options open.

An ISFP at a glance

Of all personality types, ISFPs are typically one of the most down to earth. "Actions speak louder than words" could be their motto or their philosophy of life.

The personality traits of an ISFP combine to create a pragmatic, realistic, spontaneous, and lovable person: someone who knows how to have fun and enjoy life. They are happiest when they can take as it comes every day. ISFPs feel constrained by schedules, rules, regulations, and people with limited imaginations.

ISFPs are very sensitive to sensory input. They appreciate and are interested in art and beauty in all its forms. Many ISFP personality types are also artistically gifted.

Compared to people who are more extroverted, ISFPs are likely to have a smaller circle of friends. In order to feel good, to open up to others and to be able to show their sensitivity, you have to know people well. Once ISFPs establish a relationship, their trust in that person is deep and maintaining the relationship is very important to them.
