    I like to write, but it's something I have not done in a long time. I need some real inspiration if you know what I mean. I have done some poetry in the past.

    I don't have proof of MBTI tests, but I suspect that a lot, if not the majority, of classical music instrumentalists are SJs. It's the field I work in and I see advantages in having Si for that particular skill set - for orchestral playing and soloist because you have to internalize the sensory details of a work to a significant degree and be able to recreate them. When that focused awareness of knowing when something perceived through the senses is right or not based on previous models is taken to an extreme level of detail, it is one of the bedrock skills required for classical music. I think that aspect is pure Si.

    My ISFJ girlfriend plays a viola in an orchestra as well as sings in a choir. She has also always wanted to be a singer in her own rock band (the next Hayley Williams. ). She's been taking piano lessons for years and is now studying music as her secondary subject at local university.

    So what you say makes a lot of sense at least on my experience.

    My parents made me play piano, violin, flute, clarinet and saxophone as early as 6 years of age. When I made it to highschool, my idea of rebellion was to get an electric guitar. I still play the guitar, piano, and violin.

    Default An SJ Artist

    4). What are your medium(s) of choice?

    Art is one of my hobbies, so here are some answers to your questions.


    1). I almost always draw horses. I don't often get an "inspiration" out of the blue--usually, I decide to draw. When I need to decide on what exactly to draw, I let my imagination run loose on the particular subject that I want to draw. With horses, I let them trot, prance, rear, gallop, and all those other things, in my head, until I find a pose that I like enough to draw. I rarely use photos, because to me, drawing from my imagination is more fun.


    2). I generally finish each project that I start. Sometimes I take a break from drawing for a long while, but when I get back to it, I usually go back to the one I was working on earlier.
    Quote Originally Posted by Patches View Post

    I identify with that exactly...


    3). I just show my artwork to my family and sometimes my friends, so I can't tell you much about what I think about sharing artwork online.


    4). Pencil is my favorite medium; color pencil is my second favorite. I prefer both because they are easy to use, and less messy. I actually like the effect of arcrylic paint best...but I've only started learning to use it, and it's much more tedious for me to use than pencils. I think another reason I like pencils and color pencils is because I've been using them since I can remember, so I'm very familiar with them. (That must be another SJ thing...)


    I don't think art is a natural thing for me--I think I am actually more natural at crafts. But I did a lot of horse drawing when I was little, and people told me my drawings were good, and at some point I got really hooked on it. In any case, it's fun to be able to draw horses well enough that I'm pleased with my drawings. This year I got three first prizes for my horse artwork at the local fair--that was really exciting!

    Hey, Im new to this forum of isfj, mainly because i keep testing as infj but personally i feel more sensing than intuitive but whatevs, that sounded really wishy washy what ever: art:
    I paint alot...
    mediums are generally gouache and acrylic, sometimes pastels and painting with pastels( i have 3 of those) generally gouache and acrylic.
    I usually finish my projects generally in one go haha i need to space it out, its always an eight hour painting session haha.
    They are generally inspired by music im listening to like the same cd on replay for eight hours or sometimes one or a few songs on replay haha im ruin music.
    They are all abstract paintings on whatever i dont talk about to people, i keep alot in and painting is the only way it makes sense, colours
    the recent three alll have mysterious women shapes in them because i like the ladies and no one knows its my own miserable closeting expression haha yupp

    on the topic of art thievery i hope not i just let my friends see them now and yeahh i hope not that would be awful.

    but yeah thats generally what i do i just try to paint my feelings/ music into colours into some shape or something haha and keep everyone guessin..... they probably see it all whooo knows

    As an actor I draw a lot of my inspiration from other actor's and acting mediums, such as theatre, film, and T.V. While I consistently act in all three mediums, I much prefer film and, because of that, tend to focus my inspiration and technique by studying film and mainly film actors. When it comes to completing pieces: no, I never leave any unfinished projects around. Of course, technically, when it comes to acting it's quite difficult to leave a piece unfinished without quitting entirely. Posting and sharing my artwork online? While I would love to I, sadly, cannot. I can't post the theatre, film, and T.V. that I act in and am currently acting in online because it's relatively impossible. And, as long as credit is given where credit is due, art thievery is completely fine with me. And, finally, as I stated earlier, while I consistently act in all three mediums: theatre, film, and T.V., I much prefer film. :-)

    Poet here. I don't write much because I feel like I need to be inspired to write or else I am just going through the motions. The down side is the craving to buy every book on technique that I can find so that I can work on writing perfectly. I also taught myself music theory (basic), notation and then taught myself to play the mandolin. I eventually gave it up because I did not have time to practice.
