    Let me the forum's resident ISFP help you understand the secretive creatures known as ISFPs. So ask anything you'd like to know, I can also try and help you understand your oppressive Sensor overloads a wee bit better.

    First of all an ISFP type description I quite like:

    My sister is an ISFP. She's a wanderer. I'm curious to see how she grow up.

    How do you feel about rules?

    I feel my sister is truly an ISFP, but she's been trained to be a stickler about rules and honesty (from her mother). This makes her almost seem ISFJ.

    I don't mind rules as long as I can see reason to them, "that's just how we do things/have always done them" doesn't usually cut it for me.

    Yeah, we tend to take the values of those close to us as our own, which can be confusing particularly when they conflict. I had an ISFJ mother and I can relate that, these days I still have a conflict between an SJ like need for security/structure and an SP need for freedom.

    That makes me understand it better. Have you ever found it hard to focus?

    She has a hard time focusing on school. They used to worry she had ADHD. But she can focus if she wants to. Like she can sit for hours reading a book.

    She also has the tendency to take off. I think she gets distracted by something and follows it.

    We have tremendous focus when it comes to something we're interested in, we will become completely absorbed by it. When I'm really into something I can lose hours that feel like minutes. We're just not really cut out for school, we see most of it as just regurgitation of facts and playing by the rules. What we need is to get our hands on something, that's how we learn best, practical uses, tactile experience, that all helps. Also school doesn't allow us the freedom that we thrive in, I found university was a much better fit for my learning style as I could come and go as I pleased and could learn whatever I want, however I want. I was a much more successful university student than high school student.

    Of course, we are most alive when following our impulses.

    hey, thanks for this thread, xSFP 's have always been a wonder for me, but lately I've been drawn to them. Just a hint, in your OP, can you hit the [​IMG] so that those using dark earth can read the description too?

    One of my best friends is ISFP, she means the world to me. It's a shame I haven't met more of this type; they have potential to be simply amazing people.

    How does your Se dominance manifest itself?

    Are you much into things like sports, martial arts, or guns?

    Well, from what I've heard so far, it looks like Se manifests in a very good concentration on the physical world of their hobbies...like art and craft. ISFPs are the dubbed artist type :D

    If I was a sensor, I would be ISFP. You guys make me happy
