    yes I tihnk ISFPs can be very intellectual, especially if they are "reered" right in Academia, but their verbal behavior and their passions often have them chasing things that don't fall into traditionally "intellectual" topics such as physics/philosophy etc. The ISFP in my lab will be talking about quantum electrodynamics one second, then his dog's poo the next.

    Virtually any personality type can be 'intellectual' - just takes the effort.

    Actually, I'd say about half of them are, and half of them aren't. It depends on how reflective and cautious they are, honestly. Reflective and cautious people are intellectuals regardless of type, IMO.

    I'd say the same about INTPs. Some of them are so stupid that they guess the meaning of words incorrectly, have a short attention span, use purely subjective reasoning, and can't spell correctly.

    Jean-Jacques Rousseau was an ISFP, so yes they can be.

    Some are, some aren't ... just like any other type.


    The ISFPs I know are very intelligent though.

    ISFP friend is the traditional straight A student with minimal effort (math scholarships, languages, writing etc). Does superb in everything, except the abstract. She could do anything - but prefers dancing and procastinating.

    Most ISFPs love to be genuinely appreciated, and if academia gets them that then they can do very well indeed.
    Hello. There'll be something here soon.

    The ISFP I know is an intellectual, but doesn't think he is. Not sure if it's modesty or insecurity or both, but he thinks of himself generally in artist-related terms, not realizing that he's an excellent person to talk to when you need intellectually stimulating conversation.
