STRENGTHS

Known as The Composer or Adventurer, ISFPs are:

  • Sensory - they are attuned to sensory variation, which gives them an extraordinary ability to work with the slightest nuances of color, tone, texture, aroma, and flavor.

  • Graceful - they make it a non-negotiable to carry themselves with grace and elegance.

  • Absorbed - they are so absorbed in their art, that their artistic expressions naturally emerge as though it is an extension of who they are.

  • Spontaneous - they approach their art by spontaneous impulse.

  • Internal - they reside in their own internal world, where an array of vibrant movements governs their reality.

  • Kind -  they are considered to be the kindest of all. 

WEAKNESSES

Some ISFPs can also be:

  • Fiercely Independent

  • Overly Sensitive

  • Unpredictable

  • Easily Stressed

  • Overly Competitive

  • Lacking Self-Esteem

Under stress, ISFPs can become passive and withdrawn.

IN THE WORKPLACE

How ISFPs typically operate in the workplace:

  • As Subordinates - they don’t like to be controlled, and this can be quite clear in subordinate positions – they loathe being micromanaged.

  • As Colleagues - they like working with equals, preferably other ISFPs, and giving some advice in order to solve practical problems.

  • As Managers - they are not a domineering personality type, and take no joy in exerting control over others, thus management positions feel most unnatural to them.

OTHERS

Other well-known ISFPs include:

  • Steven Spielberg

  • Barbara Streisand

  • Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart

  • Jessica Alba

  • Michael Jackson

  • Britney Spears

  • Bob Dylan
