Reserved, intensely private, and unobtrusive, it can take many encounters to get to know the incredible warmth, generosity, kindness, playful humor, and often impressive skill set of an ISFP. First impressions do not do them justice; ISFPs are the type least likely to “advertise” their own strengths. They are one of the most sympathetic types who genuinely care about and enjoy people. However, being in highly social environments tends to drain their energy - they crave time inside their own head to process and recharge.
. Highly averse to conflict or tension, ISFPs focus a lot of energy on maintaining harmony and avoiding confrontation. As one of the more sensitive types, ISFPs take criticism very seriously (and often to heart), and tend to withdraw, not engage. Intensely private, they are the least likely type to share that they had a negative or hurt reaction, leaving others totally unaware of the damage done.
ISFPs have strong personal values, and while they do not discuss them much with others, they have a large impact on the ISFP’s actions and decisions.
John Smith ISTP [The Virtuoso]
Stoic, quiet, great under pressure, and logic-driven, ISTPs would much rather just DO it, then TALK about it. In fact, they speak the fewest words on average of any type. Unlikely to interrupt others or fight for the floor, ISTPs often think best when alone. They typically prefer to gather information, come to a conclusion, and then (sometimes) share their thoughts. Often seen as mysterious, ISTPs are the type most likely to surprise others with their actions and decisions, because they don’t naturally keep others in the loop. However, when the situation calls for persuasion, ISTPs can turn on the charm and have a fun way about them that lets others to relax, smile and get on board.
Keenly observant of their physical surroundings, nothing gets past an ISTP. They find it easier than most to live completely “in the moment” most of the time, not as distracted or stressed as types who focus on the past or future.
Governor Ratcliffe ENTJ [The Commander]
Enthusiastic, direct and charismatic, ENTJs are one of the most high energy, talkative types. They are typically very comfortable sharing about their lives and are much more likely than their INTJ colleagues to “think out loud.” Highly articulate, ENTJs have a naturally bold and dynamic presence that tends to command the attention of the room. Often their tremendous outward self confidence and excellent verbal skills draw others to them, but can at times overpower or intimidate certain personality types. ENTJs are the type that have to work the hardest to not interrupt others (usually in an effort to fight for “the floor” or avoid hearing excessive details).
They don’t necessarily check in with their own emotions when making decisions, and can at times overlook others’ emotional reactions. Strategic visionaries, ENTJs excel at objectively analyzing and planning for the long-term needs of an organization. Much less sensitive than their ENFJ colleagues, ENTJs usually would rather be “right” than be “liked,” and can be very direct (to the point of being blunt).
Wiggins ESFJ [The Supporter]
Warm, high energy, talkative, friendly and highly emotionally intelligent, ESFJs are the quintessential “people” people, and tend to develop instant rapport with and bring out the best in virtually everyone. Energized most by a highly social environment, ESFJs tend to require very little alone time. They are perhaps the easiest type to get to know, usually sharing lots of detailed information about themselves early in conversations, and drawing the same out of others. Often feeling things more deeply than others, they have immediate emotional reactions that show up on their very expressive faces. They may have to force themselves to wait before responding when they feel emotionally charged. ESFJs are also the type most gifted at “reading” the emotional state and style of others – and adapting their style to be most pleasing to whomever they are with at the moment, being exceptionally diplomatic and cautious to avoid unnecessarily offending anyone.
Powhatan ISTJ [The Duty-Fulfiller]
ISTJs tend to value what has worked well in the past and find comfort in the “known,” making them one of two types that most desire structure, routine and planning ahead.
ISTJs are some of the most dependable, organized, responsible, and meticulous people on the planet, and often live by the rule: “my word is my bond.” If an ISTJ has made a commitment to do something (no matter how insignificant), they will do everything in their power to get it done - and on time. ISTJs are exceptionally playful and highly closure-focused, and when it comes to decisions, and they have a tendency to want to “get down to business” and “cut to the chase” quicker than most other types.
ISTJs are highly logic-driven, and tend to make decisions based on what makes the most logical sense from an objective viewpoint. They are not nearly as aware or as swayed by how they themselves or others personally feel about a decision as their ISFJ colleagues. ISTJs would rather be respected and thought of as fair than thought of as nice.
Nakoma ISFJ [The Defender]
Warm, patient, loyal, and exceptionally kind, ISFJs take great pleasure in helping others in concrete, practical ways, and tend to put other people’s needs before their own. In fact, the ISFJ’s generous disposition, combined with their sense of duty and discomfort with conflict or confrontation, makes it very difficult for them to say “no.” As a result, it is common for others to over-rely on them. ISFJs are also one of the types MOST highly attuned to the emotional reactions of others (and their own feelings as well), and they focus a lot of energy on maintaining harmony. As one of the more sensitive types, ISFJs take criticism very seriously (and often to heart), and tend to withdraw, not engage. They do their very best every day to please others and exceed expectations, and they thrive on private positive feedback.
