    Seriously, all these posts "X type does this!" annoy me. It's all a myth, you cannot simply explain everything about a person from a personality type quiz. It's all for knowing how people function in their brain, and that's it. There isn't one type that is all selfish, there isn't one type who is the "good guy" etc. That is up to the person to decide, it has NOTHING to do with MBTI.

    I can't tell who you're asking, but if you're asking me, then what I'm going to do is remember that I have learned that it is possible for an ISFJ to throw temper tantrums and be focused only on what they want... even though most of them are not that way.

    That's pretty much it... or maybe "ISFJs can be selfish like anyone else, usually through indirect means... although their natural bent is towards giving to others."

    No, no, no... that second one is me -- although the first one is up for grabs!

    Yup -- just like the little kids on the Precious Moments sweaters they wear all the time.

    That definition is lacking to my eyes.. it's not that they are giving so much as they put themselves as servants to other causes. Much in the same way as ExFJs. The whole thing of the cause being more important than their individual wants.

    Of course it's possible for them to be selfish, it's the way in which they're selfish that is interesting from an MBTI point of view.
    (Not aimed at you Jennifer, just a general comment)

    Personally I don't think this thread is a waste of time and nor is it another of those "can this type do this" threads. People spend so much time affirming the types most common traits it's interesting to discuss what happens when the type doesn't lead to the usual effects.
    Isn't it time for a colourful metaphor?

    Why not start an "How Art Thou Selfish? Let Us Count the Ways" thread to cover all 16 MBTI types, with the most likely pitfalls?

    Cause unless you like lists (you selfish S you) then it won't sink in.

    Do you see me writing this myself?

    No, I dumped it on y'all instead, I just had the VISION for it.
