    Default I met an ISFP today, but thought she was INTJ.

    How did I go so far off?

    You probably need to tell us that, especially if you want to make this an MBTI discussion. Otherwise, this is like casual chat.

    What behaviors did you read as INTJ, and how did you figure out the person was ISFP?

    She started talking about all of this deep analysis of all these different shows and books she read, and I interpreted this as Ni. She was a quirky girl and she talked in a sorta awkward way (I actually encounted her sketching the study hall scene in front of her from her corner. She has quite the eye for detail.

    We talked for about an hour, with myself dominating the conversation (which is unusual, as I am usually more the listener.).

    She then talked a bit about her experiences in a conservative Christian household, and how, though she is more liberal, and has trouble intellectually with Christianity, she feels a strong emotional pull towards Christianity.

    We eventually started to talk about personality types, and how she has not heard much about it, but was interested. I got her to try the similar minds Jung test, which I feel is pretty accurate. She got ISFP. I mentioned how ISFP often has some cause they feel strongly about. She started crying and listing all of these examples from her friends who where homeschooled who dealt with educational neglect and all manners of abuse. I felt so bad for her, because she has all these feeling and has no idea on even how to begin to make things better. At that point, I brainstormed for her a few possible ways to further her ideals. I suggested we could have an on-campus event highlighting her concerns so that there was greater awareness of these issues. I got really excited talking about all the possible ways we could use this as leverage to end the educational neglect and increase protections for the children. She stopped crying and smiled slightly. I promised her I would help her, then left.

    They are both introverts within the same quadra (gamma).

    Is this girl your type?

    You talked for an entire hour and it sounds like she opened up to you.

    Pretty far, but Introverts can be harder to read. As much as INFJ's are called unicorns, it's ISFPs that really feel like they are magical woodland creatures. INFJ's feel like they're from distant stars.
