Weapons Skill: Ninja Intelligence: Cunning Warm Fuzzies: Toasty, though rather secretive Leadership: Would rather not Many ISFPs are highly attuned to nature. The transformation of the Earth into a radioactive desert will hit the nature-loving ISFPs harder than most. ISFPs are very sensitive to differences in texture, sound, and color. One of the nice things about being attuned to nature is that one doesn’t need to make as many survival preparations. Many ISFPs will take up gardening as a way of beautifying their environment. Areas with high amounts of ISFPs will eventually be converted into carnivorous jungles, or “nature preserves,” as the ISFPs will call them. Confrontational Style As a Feeler, you seek harmony and dislike confrontation.

Common Careers for Personality Types Research has shown that many of the different Personality Types tend to have distinct preferences in their choice of careers. We have incorporated observations of each type's character traits which affect career choice along with some suggestions for possible directions. We have also included lists of actual careers which the various types have chosen in their lives. This material is provided for your reference, and is intended to be an informational guide. It does not comprise a complete analysis of ideal careers for individuals, and does not guarantee success or failure at any occupation. As we know, individuals vary greatly.

ISFP personality I change during the course of a day. I wake and I'm one person, and when I go to sleep I know for certain I'm somebody else. ISFP personality types are true artists, but not necessarily in the typical sense where they're out painting happy little trees. Often enough though, they are perfectly capable of this. Rather, it's that they use aesthetics, design and even their choices and actions to push the limits of social convention. ISFPs enjoy upsetting traditional expectations with experiments in beauty and behavior – chances are, they've expressed more than once the phrase "Don't box me in!" Happy to Be Who They Are ISFPs live in a colorful, sensual world, inspired by connections with people and ideas. Despite all this, ISFPs are definitely Introverts (I), surprising their friends further when they step out of the spotlight to be by themselves to recharge. ISFPs live to find ways to push their passions. However, if a criticism does get through, it can end poorly. Famous ISFPs Bob Dylan

ISFP - Composer Producer The following is adapted from Linda V. Berens and Dario Nardi, The 16 Personality Types: Descriptions for Self-Discovery (Telos Publications, 1999) *Used with permission. What's it like to be you? Probably I'm the happiest when things are just a little different everyday. I don't want to commit to any particular way to be. When I'm someplace, doing something, I'm really there. I'm reserved when I first meet people, but I am friendly, warm, and outgoing once I've gotten to know someone. I have a lot of interests and I can get interested in one thing, and then something else comes along and that looks fascinating. I like recognition.

MBTI Basics The purpose of the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® (MBTI®) personality inventory is to make the theory of psychological types described by C. G. Jung understandable and useful in people's lives. The essence of the theory is that much seemingly random variation in the behavior is actually quite orderly and consistent, being due to basic differences in the ways individuals prefer to use their perception and judgment. "Perception involves all the ways of becoming aware of things, people, happenings, or ideas. In developing the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator [instrument], the aim of Isabel Briggs Myers, and her mother, Katharine Briggs, was to make the insights of type theory accessible to individuals and groups. The identification of basic preferences of each of the four dichotomies specified or implicit in Jung's theory. The identification and description of the 16 distinctive personality types that result from the interactions among the preferences."

ISFP Characteristics The ISFP is the astute observer of life, quiet, introspective and kindly. Harmony and respectfulness of values are so important to them. And although trust takes quite some time to establish, once it has been, the ISFP will be a solid and dependable friend. Quiet supporters, rarely will an ISFP be the leader, preferring to remain behind the scenes, observing, understanding, but saying very little. The downside of this is that the ISFP can be overly laid back and, unless it is important to their values, have 'one speed,' with little acceleration. Patient and very flexible ISFPs follow the path of least resistance, rarely criticising the beliefs, actions or attitudes of others. Focusing on the here and now, the ISFP will live life to the full, cherishing the present moment, and finding real pleasure in the more sensory and practical activities such as painting or handicrafts. ISFPs are the first to tune into the ‘new wave.’

Keirsey Temperament Sorter Heading text[edit] The Keirsey Temperament Sorter (KTS) is a self-assessed personality questionnaire designed to help people better understand themselves and others. It was first introduced in the book Please Understand Me. It is one of the most widely used personality assessments in the world, and its user base consists of major employers including Bank of America, Allstate, the U.S. Air Force, IBM, 7-Eleven, Safeco, AT&T, and Coca-Cola.[1] The KTS is closely associated with the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI); however, there are significant practical and theoretical differences between the two personality questionnaires and their associated different descriptions. Four temperaments[edit] David Keirsey expanded on the ancient study of temperament by Hippocrates and Plato. Artisans are concrete and adaptable. Guardians are concrete and organized. Idealists are abstract and compassionate. Rationals are abstract and objective. Understanding the sorter descriptions[edit] See also[edit]
