    Default ISFJs and yelling outbursts

    Is this normal?

    My ISFJ is WONDERFUL, but when something goes wrong and he's super frustrated (a piece of machinery doesn't work and he can't figure it out, over and over and over, for instance), he will let out a super big "GHAHHHHHH!!!" at no one in particular. Sometimes he's so mad he has to go outside and pace and yell a few times. No amount of consoling helps, it's best to just let him get it out.

    It's not directed at me, it's not scary, it's just unusual. I've never heard anything like it.

    Any thoughts?

    I don't believe (not 100% sure, others will confirm such or not) this is ISFJ related, but more of individually learned techniques of releasing stress. I'm also guessing if working out is unavailable (like if your at work) or time constraints (taking time to listen to music).

    I do this myself occuationally, especially in similar situations (meddling with machinery).

    I don't think its werid myself.

    My mom is an ISFJ, and does the same thing. Also, when she accidentally hurts herself she has the same type of outburst, and if you try to talk to her during that time, she gets even more upset.

    (Actually, I should add that an ESFP I know does the same thing.)

    Interesting. Well my older ESTP brother used to yell out of nowhere, but only to get out his anxiety. Like he'd be reading a book for an hour or so and just have to yell. Hehe. Totally different thing though.

    I don't really think that's related to MBTI. All of my brothers seem to yell out when they're frustrated and they don't have the same personalities.

    Yes, I do this....and have for a long time. I don't enjoy it.

    Yeah it's pretty normal shouting at the universe.

    I have been on the receiving end of an ISFJ yelling outburst.. It is weird and I can only liken it to a toddler having a tantrum... I'm not saying this is the case for all ISFJs at all just in this case. The only way I could find to deal with it is to remain very calm and unmoved, as in this particular case there is a need to unsettle the person they are ranting at, once they see that this is not happening half the motivation is gone. Then it's just a case of taking their mind of things and trying to rationalise (Very difficult for ENFP) them out of their tantrum... Basically deal with it as you would a toddler... This is just my experience with one particular ISFJ it can't be said for every ISFJ of course

    PS I love and admire the said ISFJ very much and so none of the above is meant as an isult
    ... couldn't drag me away
