    Question Words of an ISFJ ?

    Hi there ISFJs, I need your help.

    I am trying to figure someone's personality out, I've been pretty much working on this for years. I had recently concluded she was a clean-cut ISFP (she's a skillful musician and massage therapist, has composed some music, enjoying life seems to be quite important to her) until I read Keirsey's description of the ISFJ. I then recognised some things she had said that made her sound like she had a strong ISFJ side as well.

    Would these words be associated with your personality type?

    "I love to have responsibilitites and to do my work well."

    "This time gave me an appreciation for hard work. [...] As I grew so did my love for [...] my culture."

    "I couldn't play (music) yet again for less money than what we were worth."

    They kind of sound ISFJ to me. Previous work experience include secretary/administration work (and studying) and she considered becoming a nurse before choosing massage therapy.

    She is quite sober in the way she dresses and never looks flashy or anything.

    What do you think?

    Sounds like she could be an ISFJ to me. ISFP's are generally a little more stylish I think. Then again I think ISFJ's generally have a good sense of style too.

    Sounds somewhat like me. But my ISFP son would make the remark about music.

    I considered becoming a nurse. Somehow I ended up as a paralegal.

    I confirm, she is an ISFJ. Met and spoke with her last weekend, and paid close attention to her words. She is a folk musician, and this for her is a way to honour and protect her traditions (she is from Cape Breton).
    She probably has a 30-40% P, but certainly dominant J (she was telling me about her long "To Do" lists...) Massage therapy for her is a way of "helping people" - the SJ helpmate, you know what I mean...

    From what I understand, those ISFJ females hurt others' feelings real bad... BUT 99% of the time they don't mean to. Just don't do anything rash because there might be some misunderstanding somewhere along the line.
