    Default Does this description sound like an ISFJ?

    For a long time I have suspected one of my friends to be an ISFJ, but after examining more closely I'm not quite as sure. What do you guys think based on the following list?

    -she has a tendency to be very cynical
    -spends money conservatively,
    -aspires to be kind of a hippie, is really into Buddha
    -likes to change clothes a lot
    -Talks about all her "weird" personality traits and quarks. Considers herself "strange"
    -anti-religion. Not sure of atheist, but definitely against established religion.
    -got very frustrated and confronted her teacher once for teaching the class poorly (doesn't seem to promote harmony)
    -seems to enjoy alcohol a decent amount - even drinking alone
    -enjoys travel and cultural studies
    -enjoys expression via social media
    -is more profane than the average female
    -follows her boyfriend around like a puppy
    -used to play sports, goes to the gym regularly, always remains physically fit
    -doesn't get along well with her family

    If you had to assign a type to this set of attributes, what would it be?

    Traits that seem ISFJish: spends money conservatively, enjoys expression via social media, goes along with SO.
    Traits that do not seem ISFJish: kind of a hippie, changes clothes a lot, talks about "weird"ness, confronted teacher, doesn't get along with family.

    Neither/either: very cynical, anti-religion, enjoys alcohol, enjoys travel, is profane, physically fit.

    I could see more ISFP out of this, maybe ISTP minus the boyfriend thing.

    I don't know what type but I seriously doubt this would be an ISFJ. Maybe some kind of SP.

    ISFP prolly...I don't think that they're good with money though, maybe good at making, but not always good at being conservative with it

    they are cynical

    they drink alcohol...some of them ..and can drink it alone...along with doing other drugs...alone

    I have known a lot that follow their SO's around, I feel like that's if they're younger though)

    ISFJ...most likely not gonna drink alone

    ISFJ most likely not gonna consider herself strange

    ISFJ is not gonna confront a teacher to tell them that

    ISFJ prolly not gonna be as profane as others...(that sounds more like a dominant thinker)

    If she's not ISFP ...prolly ESFP, ESTP, or ISTP

    Although this list doesn't give much info about her functions.

    Are you familiar with the cognitive functions?

    Do you know which ones she uses?

    Sounds more IxxP, and like others, probably more ISxP, although InxP is not out of the question. Leaning towards her being a Feeling type, but it's hard to say based off just this.


    -she has a tendency to be very cynical
    -aspires to be kind of a hippie (more so idealizing being bohemian)
    -likes to change clothes a lot
    -Talks about all her "weird" personality traits and quarks. Considers herself "strange"
    -got very frustrated and confronted her teacher once for teaching the class poorly (doesn't seem to promote harmony)
    -seems to enjoy alcohol a decent amount
    -enjoys travel and cultural studies
    -goes to the gym regularly, always remains physically fit

    These could apply to me in varying degrees.

    -doesn't get along well with her family

    I'm close to them & can get along, but we can have a more tumultuous dynamic than some families.

    I don't know, but half of those points could be my ISFJ mum. She's not very hippish and alternative, though.

    But I can't exactly see many ISFJs confronting a teacher in front of everyone; a ESFJ, maybe.

    Hmm.... I'll respond in order

    1) I can be, though I like to think of myself as someone who "hopes for the best, plans for the worst" sort of guy.

    2) On certain thing...yes I can, on other things I can spend money like it grows on trees. For example, I detest going out "drinking" because of the cost of alcohol. On the other hand, I have no problem dropping $200 on an Apple device or something similar to it because I'm a gadgetphile

    3) Not at all. I'm a Dockers/Banana Republic kind of guy. I'm actually trying to emulate my dress style off of Michael Buble, because he's a suave looking chap

    4) Not. at. all. In fact a criticism my ex gave me was just how limited my wardrobe was. I don't see the need for 40 pairs of pants, just 5-10 that I'll wear regularly and wash regularly

    5) I have mild Aspergers Syndome so I have some quirks but I like to consider myself a mild-mannered nerd or an "Executive Millennial"

    6) I'm an atheist who has taken a keen interest in Taoism and Confucianism and has begun trying to apply the principles these two schools teach but am strongly against calling myself 'spiritual' because of the connotations that word has. I'd like to just think I'm striving for inner peace

    7) Not at all. If I'm not happy with a class, I just leave said class or I (quietly) grumble to myself and fantasize about hacking into their computer and making their desktop wallpaper a giant penis (Not that I'd ever actually do that, but the mental picture of them sitting down and discovering that is incredibly amusing)

    8) I like having a glass of red port that's sold from a local brewery that I really like but otherwise....no. Truthfully, while I don't have any issue with alcoholic drinks in and of themselves, I do intensely dislike how much of a crutch they can be to a lot of people (and I don't include alcoholics in this generalization)

    9) Very much so! On all the plane trips and cruise ships I've gone travelling on, I'm always the guy with excessive amounts of Dramamine

    10) Yup. I live on Facebook. Don't care for twitter, it feels like the diet coke of Facebook

    11) People get surprised when they learn how much I actually swear. I seem to evoke this image of being a wholesome, 'gosh-darn-it-geez-whiz' kind of guy and people have no idea how wrong they are

    12) If I could have followed my ex around like a puppy, I would have, but she didn't want to see me nearly as often as I wanted to see her (which I suppose is one of the reasons why she's my ex! ). Being with and spending time with my partner are important to me.

    13) Sports I never took too but physical fitness is something I've taken a big interest in as of late. Between my kung fu classes/practice sessions and my sessions with my personal trainer, I've taken a liking to pushing myself

    14) I get along swimmingly with my family. The same can not be said about them with other members though

    Hope that helped

    I second INFP. Though ISFP crossed my mind.

    It was the confronting the teacher as well as being good with her money thing that made me lean towards INFP more, since they have Si. I'd even consider INFJ.
