    Default a female ISFJ who acts selfishly?

    Is there any such thing as a female ISFJ who acts selfishly
    and throws temper tantrums to get what she wants - on a regular basis?

    Xander says he has seen one, but I'm having a hard time believing it.
    Are there any eye-witnesses here?

    Feel free to explain why you think they exist, or why you think they don't.

    Yes, I have seen one before.
    No, I know one or more ISFJs and they never act selfishly.
    Maybe.

    Sorry! I meant to make a poll, but it didn't work!
    I'm waiting for someone to come and make a poll for this.




    Yay! Edahn made me a poll!

    not sure about women, as none are coming to mind off-hand, but i damn sure have met more than one ISFJ male who was like this.

    it's just clumsily disguised behind surface unselfishness.

    Like Digest says, usually when it happens, it shows up disguised as something good -- an attempt to control/manipulation based on the impeccable moral virtue or "selflessness" of the ISFJ.

    The main way to tell is when the person becomes angry (not just hurt, but consistently angry) when others don't reciprocate the same level of commitment they insist on providing to others even when the situation doesn't call for that degree of commitment.

    However, with young ISFJs, I've seen them get possessive or clingy or focused on their looks (believe it or not) or other things.

    Note: Every type obviously manifests selfishness in some manner. Some are more overt about it than others.

    Yeah, I know 2, but one manages to give her actions the color of sweetness. the other . . . not so much (though not for lack of trying).

    Really?!
    Would you care to elaborate a little bit?
    I'd be interested in hearing more.

    This is what Xander had to say:

    I've only known two IRL and... no. They're both selfless. It's almost automatic in their functions, so it's hard to pin-point an exact example; they just... are.

    Both of them are reluctant to share, though. Not that they flat-out say no. It's more of a "Oh... okay then. *suddenly goes into slow motion*" kind of thing. Yeah.
    Um, yeah.
