    This seems to be a common trait if you just swap the S/N part of a type. A very good friend type.

    aesthetically inclined, technically skilled, but far more down-to-earth. it's very be here now, which is sometimes exactly what i need when i have been spending my days and weeks with my head in the clouds scanning, scanning, scanning. plus they're comforting and focused (not scattered), which makes for good one-to-one.

    My new friend is an isfp. I am very fond of him. He has two children of his own just like me and he is cares for them in a way I just can't imagine a man could. I really enjoy his company. He is so comforting. He tries to please me all the time. Something I am not used to from my ex-entp-husband. I suspect my love for this man may be an aversive reaction to the relationship I had with my ex. The only thing that worries me slightly is the thought he may not tell me if something is missing in our relationship or that I might hurt him by accident without finding out in time to mend it. Though he often seems to worry that I could have a problem with him since he is constantly asking me whether everything is fine. I start to feel I might have to stop showing him all my moodswing if they are not connected to him. Could it be that isfp have a tendency to want to feel happy all the time?

    I'm currently seeing a guy who's an ISFP. He's so warm and affectionate and makes me melt into a puddle...

    Also, I met him off myspace. LOL.

    The first few times we would message eachother back, rarely skipping days. First, our messages would be pretty short, then, being the INFP I am, my messages gradually became longer and longer... and thus, so did his. Haha. We had alot of similar interests, and we pretty much believe we were twins. We had the same favorite type of music and holiday, same habits, both have a love for art... (heck, we both make art), we both love the unusual... were were the same in almost every way possible. Heck, our childhoods were even alike!

    The only thing that differed between us was the fact that he was a more hands on person and liked to be up n about doing things... and multitask like crazy. I, on the otherhand, would rather be a lazyass.
    Although he's pretty lazy himself. lol. We both have the tendency to drift off into daydreams and sleep in alot. Another difference is that I love reading books... and he doesn't. He thinks they're boring and would ratherwatch a movie instead. :rolli:

    The first time we met (was actually this January), it was a tad bit awkward (...darn Introvert-ness!). But it was all good, because after awhile, I was pretty comfortable being around him. We went and hung with his friends at the mall (who were clearly extravert), and he tried teaching me to play the guitar (I was really clumsy ). From what I have observed that day, he's a really sweet and popular person. He knew so many people! Made me feel weird, since I'm only close to a select few since I don't go out alot. He's very skilled at playing guitar and plays in a punk/ska band. He's also pretty... uhm... feminine? Haha. Not only in looks, but also in behavior. Haha. I still luff him though. He's also very good with kids and animals. He taught his 3 year old nephew to do the caramel danse.

    The next time we're meeting again is this Friday. Can't wait!<333

    Anyways. Nuff of my loveydovey talk. Hah.

    All I can say about ISFPs is that they are amazing. They have the most wonderful sense of style and humor and are just overall fun to hang out with. It's hard not to like one! Haha. Also, one of my best friends is an ISFP. She's pretty much the same as the dude I'm seeing except for the fact that her N side is more developed. She can get pretty in depth with the abstract talk. {:

    She knows how to play the piano real well and come up with some awesome dishes when cooking. She's great with kids, but she's scared as heck of some animals. lol. When we first met she was pretty shy at first. Took some time to pull a few sentences to of her, but was worth it. She's super sweet and was always there for me when I needed her the most. We can spend hours on the phone together, and when we go hang out, we either really just go window shopping or eat sandwiches in the park and get all in touch with nature and just chill. It was tradition for us. (: Never really were much of party people. Everyone thought we were sisters even though we don't look anything alike. Our habits just rubbed off on eachother... alot. Hah. We were both pretty much considered "weird".

    The only time I remember ever being in conflict with her was when we were walking home from school back in the day, and she was walking really fast ahead of me. Now that upset me since it made me feel neglected? I suppose? I knew there was something wrong, but she just wouldn't tell me her problem. Later I found out it was because she thought I was the one ignoring her. Goodness. :rolleyes2:

    Could it be that we are dating the same guy? We have met in early January as well. I don't really have much to add. Sounds like a pretty accurate description of his character. When we both figured out that he is likely to be an isfp, I got a bit nervous. My own sister is of that type. I always felt that I was the strong one in this and that I had to protect her all the time. To be honest I disliked her dependency on me. Thatís why I was slightly cautious at the start. Then again I was the older one and she is 5 years younger. May be this added to her dependency.

    Yes, he is very handy. My flat is having a remake since we met. The daydreaming bit goes for us as well.
    He has a lot of books on good literature. In fact more than I have. But he seems to read for different reasons. I am more into trying to understand myself and everything that I am interested in. Sometimes I post him links to help him with technical or legal problems he is having. But he is very hesitant to use that information. It almost looks like overload to him.

    Yes he is also very social and concerned about his friends. And funny enough he used to play the guitar in a punk band as well. Recently he asked me whether I think he is feminine. I said he should not worry for my interest he is masculine enough. He just has more traits associated with females in our culture. I thinks that makes him incredible attractive to me.

    ^Haha! Waow, that's so weird! lol. If your guy's asian with pink and blonde hair, it could possibly be true that we may be dating the same guy... scandalous! Haha!

    My ISFP doesn't really like reading unless it has do with his interests like yours. He likes reading know-how-to books.

    And I totally agree with the feminine part. I just thinks it's really cute how motherly and polite he is. [:
    Although he seems pretty outgoing, he needs alot of alone time to himself... usually he falls really quiet when he's upset. No biggy though. He's an introvert. I'm an introvert. It's all understandable. :'D
    (plus since I just discovered that I'm not really INFP)

    Just to show how easy it is to spot an ISFP, eh? Haha! : P

    One of my closest friends is an ISFP. He's much more down-to-earth than I am, and his Se is very clearly visible , but in general we are on amazingly similar wavelengths. We practically never misinterpret each other and can talk and just be very freely with each other.

    He's a very soft and caring man (vegetarian for ethical reasons, likes animals and children very much, is considerate etc) and doesn't seem to have the compulsive need to be traditionally masculine - I appreciate this a lot.

    He just doesn't seem to have a developed enough Te and is a lot more random and procrastinating than I am, and hey, I'm INFP. He isn't very able to defend himself and has complained about being taken advantage of. In certain situations I've forced him to say no. He has been thankful for it.

    My dear younger brother is an ISFP. He is an extremely calm, patient kind of guy and we get along very well. Possibly because we were close as kids, he has a well developed imagination and I can do the attention to detail thing (for short periods, at least), which we may have learned from each other.

    However, he does like to talk in massive detail about his main hobby (collecting fine Arts and Crafts furniture - a very ISFP-like pursuit!) at which point my brain goes into sleep mode.
