    I feel the same way, JustHer. I don't like sugar-coated fluff or vagueness, either. I like direct communication. That being said, direct communication can be tactful and diplomatic without being sugar-coated fluff.
    Of course, as isfp and entj are polar opposites, there may be some difficulty in communicating well. ENTJ is a directing type and ISFPs don't like to be told what to do!!! This is where tact and diplomacy really help.
    Speaking about ISFP and ENTJ, I had been having difficulty figuring out my own type. I thought that I was an ESFP so I put that in my information. When I realized that I was not an ESFP, I mentioned in my blog that my career as an ESFP was fun but short-lived and I asked for suggestions of other types that I could try out for about a week. The recommendation was ENTJ. So I put ENTJ on my information and had a lot of fun for a week pretending to be an ENTJ. I was, of course, just a caricature of an ENTJ but I had a great time. Pretending to be a (not-very-good) ENTJ did help me learn to accept ENTJs for who they are, without trying to make them be more like me!
    The one thing that I really like about what you said has to do with honest communication. As an ISFP or as a (fake) ENTJ, I prefer to hear the unpleasant truth to vagueness and fluff.

    I'm sure I've come off this way... but it's not that I'm overcompensating. I get on these weird... "high's." If I'm really excited about something that I'm doing or having a lot of fun or in an extremely cheerful mood, I can be way overly social than my norm. We can go from overly social to completely aloof. It's weird. We're weird.

    STOP acting like a victim! If you can withstand such crap then you're probably tougher than you guys think.(Also, they use the number 3 to get people to do things for them sometimes -.-)
    We only get people to lower their defenses because we want everyone to feel comfortable and relaxed. We don't do it to lay down an attack. I think many of us ISFP's are pretty tough... or at least I consider myself to be a pretty tough chick. I don't necessarily go around kicking people's asses, but I'm no damsel. :workout:

    I can tell when my closest ISFP friend is not fond of a person because his facial expression changes from the usual happy to grim when he sees the person in question. Then he tries to avoid being close to or interacting with the person.
    I'm quite confrontational & aggressive. However, I use tact. I think this is just something I learned over time, as I got tired of being run all over or not being heard. If I've got a problem with something, I state it. I'm careful to not start a conflict or fight, but I state my opinions and like to talk them out.

    My friends wife and one of her friends are ISFP, and..

    -They don't get jokes
    -serious and unfun
    -scared of people, my friends wife (A) being the one able to confront her fears
    -gloomy view on life
    -untalkative
    -avoidant of anything not specifically "sensitive"
    -often sensitive to the point of ludicrosity, attributing negative and harsh qualities to inanimate, neutral objects and those associated with them.. EXAMPLE: "his cloths have such an inconsiderate 'vibe' to them, he must be an inconsiderate person"
    -sometimes little more than just a living clothes hanger for their clothes
    -everything is about "vibe", "feel" and "look", world is about everything that "don't match" to the mood, style, feel, occasion, etc.. and every unmatching thing in the world is to be suffered in full
    Whoa, whoa, whoa... what?? I laugh all the time! I'm constantly silly and ridiculous! I'm quite optimistic! I can be quite chatty! I'm not uber stylish, if that's what you mean by clothshanger, and I consider myself to have great depth. If these people you are describing are ISFP's, they are quite unfortunate ones. This is definitely not an accurate description of every living ISFP.

    I'm so like this. I think I've just been fooled one too many times, I have a hard time putting my faith in people.

    I've been called out on doing this to other's before as well. I think as ISFP's we're just always aware of what another might possibly think or feel from something that was intended as harmless. We worry someone might take something the wrong way, and we're always watching out for other's feelings as well.

    Joan, you are a lot like me.. just in female form I agree though, age and experience does a lot for ISFPs.

    i think healthy ISFP's have a great capacity for growing quite wise with age.

    ISFPs don't age.
    Act your age not your enneagram number.
