    It's probably when one reads the descriptions and not the tests that confusesPeople. The descriptions of certain sensor typer on certain/most sites are rather sad.

    Read some/majority sensor type descriptions and then come here and tell us whether it amuses you. If it still does what would it imply about you I wonder?

    Let's say it does still amuse me. What does it imply? You obviously have some thoughts along those lines already.

    Hey, @Orangey, someone made a thread just for you!

    Me, I'm still on the fence. Could be ISFJ, could be INFP. I still get stuck in the "I'm a small-minded, unambitious wimp, so I might be an ISFJ" mindset, though. Add to that the fact that I'm lousy with expressing caring and things get even more muddled.

    Open-mindedness (which is not exclusive to Ns) takes time.
    Tentative typing: ISFJ 6w5 or 9w1 (Sp/S[?]).

    I admit it. I hired a helper monkey many moons ago who tested the best in the Ne department from the flock I had carefully cultivated for such a deception.

    Phew.

    So glad I got that off my mind.

    ^^^Is this seriously a thing? I'm sincerely asking because the ISFJs I know irl seem like none of those things.

    Function tests are helpful.

    As far as anything else, I can discern a majority within a minute or two of talking to them... but since it's a subjective thing, I doubt it does you much good. It's more just a sense of where someone goes / doesn't go in a conversation and how they approach a topic... it's not even necessarily content, it's whether they seem to focus on the object itself or connections between objects. I can't really explain it better.

    I knew it.

    Nah, it's a very flawed mindset. Though, when you think "famous author/filmmaker/intellectual/whatever", ISFJ is not quite what springs to mind. They seem to be content with personally fulfilling but low-rank and invisible positions, hence the stereotype...

    One of my dearest friends is an ISFJ and he is such an impressive (not to mention creative and intelligent) person. He has less than zero desire to be famous, though I think he dreams of pushing forward some family or friend run business that he'd like to be very successful. In my experience with ISFJs, they want to take care of their friends/family and everyone else can go screw themselves.

    If you are dismissive of "personally fulfilling but low-rank and invisible positions" then you are distinctly unlike any ISFJ I have ever met. Not only do ISFJs not dismiss the worth of it, they take a particular pride in it. Like ISTJs they get off on knowing that everything is working and everyone is working together on their diligent, caring, watch. I have never met an ISFJ who was angstful about anything so self-centered and needlessly abstract as typing themselves. I would also suspect there are very few ISFJs in this community.
