    There's a gentleness there. Seems kinda delicate. Like INFP's on the outside usually do.

    Katy Perry is a better example of ISFP. Total bimbo and airhead.
    You have no business assigning type to anyone.

    You utterly fail at this.

    Was Salvidor Dali also an airheaded bimbo? How about Bob Dylan? Ulysses S. Grant (U.S. president)...Sophia Coppola? Mozart? Steven Spielburg?

    How about the philosopher Jean-Jacques Rousseau?

    Rodin?

    +1 It annoys me when people say Bob Dylan is an "N" just because he is so good with words, and because he is too politically aware for an S.

    A sidenote: Toonia (Annwn) made a very interesting argument for Mozart as an ENTP a while back, I wish I could find it. I know he is usually typed as an ISFP, but she left little doubt in my mind.

    Ernest Hemingway and F. Scott Fitzgerald, not to mention Zelda Fitzgerald, Agatha Christie, and William Wordsworth were all "good with words" and S.

    There is a shit ton of misinformation on the Intertardz about S vs. N.

    It's like people want to say "oh good every person I don't like or think is stupid is an S, and I'm an N just because I think I'm smrt."

    Um, what?

    The ISFP's I know are not bimbo/airheads at all. That's a pretty unfair, and silly thing to say.

    And with that said, I think Tom Petty = ISFP.

    I like Tom Petty. Tom Petty has a kind of nasal tone. Like Dylan. Dylan is isfp. So it only figures so is Petty.

    I'm not very fan of him. His music is nice but not enough "savage", too much a nice guy.

    TTom Pettyom Petty has come clean about his upbringing and says he still has nightmares about his violent father. According to Petty, his old man didn't understand his love of the arts and thought he was homosexual because he had no interest in playing football or baseball. Petty also says he loathed joining his dad, an outdoorsman, on hunting trips.

    "(My father) was scary and violent," Petty said in the new issue of Rolling Stone. "He beat the living hell out of me, and there was constant verbal abuse."

    "Looking back on it, he probably was disappointed that I was so drawn to the arts," the rocker added. "He probably thought I was gay. I wasn't interested in sports. I didn't know the names of any baseball players. I liked films and books and records."

    "He liked to fish and hunt," Petty explained. "He'd drag me on these trips, and it was a nightmare. Shooting something repelled me."
    sounds NF to me
