    FWIW, I think your Se is "high" in a ISFP-ish way. In your receptivity and go with the flow sort of attitude. But that isn't what Se always is. In ESPs it's more opportunistic. It isn't going with the flow, but trying to draw attention to it's own flow. And instead of being receptive to information around them, they generally single in on the information they consider empowering and generally admirable. And they have a lot of practice from birth embodying some of it. Whether it's looks/actions/some kind of status/having the best jokes/etc.. (I make it sound bad, and I don't mean to. I think they're mostly fun people).

    It's rare to find an ISFP who attempts that. At best, they want their individual ideas appreciated (which would be more of a Fi priority), not what the general idea among others is worthy of appreciation.

    ESPs balance themselves too, of course. Just like an ISP will grow into balancing themselves a different way. I think maybe even both could be both "High Fi" and "High Se" in their own right, but since they are different types, it still comes out differently.

    I think I understand what you are saying. I relate to what you say about isfp and individual ideas. I feel I have become more that way, in a way the phrase you used for esp, drawing attention to its own flow I relate to from an individualistic perspective.

    The main reason I see myself as Fi first is I have spent a lot of time reflecting on experiences.

    Wolfy, I "feel" that you're ISFP but a, shall we say, more forceful one? Though from experience ISFPs can be quite forceful and rock-solid. Perhaps your Se/Fi axis is the closest one?

    What I don't get is if ISFP is "The Aesthete" yet they're supposed to be inwardly focused, surely an Aesthete is focused outwards on objects?

    I don't think anyone is truly inward focused. Unless they're blind - and I'm not even sure that's the case either.

    I think introversion is more about being focused on their own impression of objects. There's probably more coming from left field if they do that (for all types that is.. whether ISFP, ISFJ, INTJ, etc).

    I guess it is. It seems I use Ti a bit too, I'd agree with that. And rock solid, I like the sound of that.

    That's a good question... I guess an aesthete is looking at how things relate to their impression of how they should be. Or, they have some individual vision of things and work from that. I see things as being in a loop, a feedback loop, where one is slightly stronger and influences it more.

    From that perspective it would seem I am working from my own need to express something than I am adapting things to express myself on my surroundings. It's difficult to know where things come from though, it isn't like you can put why you do things into words, even to yourself, a lot of the time. It is just a feeling.

    If you change your type I'll have to change all my references, and that sounds suspiciously like work.
