    Being smart helps. But most of my skill comes from knowing what I'm doing. There's a wonderful story about INFP Sean Penn. In the first play he did, he was awful, and his mother, also an actor (Eileen Ryan), came up to him afterward and told him he was awful and encouraged Sean to pursue a different line of work. And Sean wasn't broken by that experience, he joined a very intensive acting class taught by the late great Peggy Feury, fully committed himself to the process of learning and soon he was doing really, really good work on stage and then films...

    Sean's comment on his brutal introduction to acting was something like "I saw that acting was a craft and I wanted to get a handle on that craft."

    Go down to Your Preferred Communication Style and read the link in its entirety.

    While the link in question contrasts INFPs with INFJs, you can substitute "ISFP" for "INFP" in the text in question.

    All types communicate in very distinctive styles, or forms. The forms by which INFJs communicate are directive; the forms by which IFPs communicate are informative.

    This is a very well-known and researched feature of MBTI theory.

    Once you become familiar with what these forms look like--and it isn't rocket science, it's just pattern recognition--you can easily read an sufficiently long interview with someone like George Harrison (or Bob Dylan or John Lennon) and go "Oh, this person prefers an informative communication style. Therefore, he can't be an INFJ."

    When you start doing this it can be complex. Imagine using a flow-chart to determine whether an animal is a cat or a fox. When you get more experienced and adept at this it's really easy.
    See, i think you just debunked your point, because you claim to be INFP, yet your post was totally directive.

    Wow, really? What other basics of typology can you teach me? I have no idea what any of these letters mean; I'm just randomly stringing them together.

    I'm awfully glad someone as talented and experienced as you is here to save me from the throes of ignorance, though!
    If you could be anything you want, I bet you'd be disappointed--am I right?

    Man, you've gotta teach me this simple contradiction tactic too--it's nothing short of brilliant!

    You're welcome. As I said previously, once this become a question of wanting to learn rather than wanting to win a pissing contest, there is a great deal you can learn, and I will be happy to help.

    Well you see, the "F" in INFJ stands for "Feeling", meaning this person prefers the Feeling process to its opposite, "Thinking", which is designated by a "T."

    You can find some other basic information here:

    Myers-Briggs Type Indicator - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Let me know when you're ready to learn more. It can be discouraging at first, but don't worry--self-described authorities like me are here to hold your hand through the process of saving yourself from destitute ignorance.
