    Fair enough, most types are strange from my perspective though.

    ISFPs seem pretty simple to me in terms of their needs and wants, but they tend to have complex emotions.

    To me, ISFPs really seem to stay well above the fray concerning almost everything. When that happens, you end up not knowing where someone stands, their opinions, and what they're about. I don't think they're necessarily holding back, but that they just have a preference towards nonalignment and simplicity. A perpetual blank slate, of sorts.

    I don't really get what they mean by most misunderstood in the description. It's so vague. Probably, like others have said, ISFP tend to keep things to themselves and that leads to misunderstandings. My brother is also ISFP and he isn't hard to understand.

    It's kind of interesting though, but we would have to check others understanding of us against our own understanding of ourselves to really get to the bottom of it. And that's not going to happen in a hurry.

    As far as getting their thoughts across in text. I find ISFP and ISTP the easiest to understand.

    Whoa, irony. 3am today, I was actually feeling like the most misunderstood person on the planet. I was writing blog entries about it, ranting and every though and was thinking of all the times I felt left out or criticized for being too naive or careless when it was just the opposite. This "I feel so different, blahblah" mood disappeared though when I just pushed myself to stop thinking that way... and that everyone was unique and beautiful in their own way... and stuff.

    I can get so emotional and break down at the most random times... But maybe that's just me.

    LOL. I find being called strange more of a compliment really!

    About being verbal; I dunno about that. I find myself getting tongue tied and jumbling up my words constantly. Of course, that could just stem from the fact that I usually don't talk confidently unless I was truly comfortable around you. Kinda like what Quinlan said, actually.

    I think I am understood by the people who really try. But not by the people that just go by assumptions.

    what kinds of steps do you really appreciate people taking to try and get to know you? I know ISFP tend to really like privacy as well, so what is a good balance? Actions? Words? ISFP tend to show affection through actions, but is this always reciprocal? Do genuine words have a good effect on the ISFP?

    I often feel misunderstood especially by my ENFJ husband. I've tried many times to explain my feelings, opinions and concerns but what comes out of my mouth is nothing close to what I wanted to express. He usually ends up saying that I'm too complicated. So .. I've learned not to even try to explain myself with him.
    I usually do well communicating with my SF friends though.

    I also hate small talk and when at social gatherings I am quiet, reserved and I feel that I come across as snobbish.

    I'm ISFP with a weaker S. In a family of ISTJ and ISTP and another T, I feel I've been misunderstood most of my life. Sometimes I don't even understand the complexity and intensity of my emotions, and I seek solitude when it becomes unbearable. I live an unassuming life, so when others assume it makes life hard on us.

    I'm a very open person, and have no problem talking at length about myself (as anyone who's conversed with me on Vent can attest. ) So, really, just asking me about myself and actually listening to what I say and considering it is really all that is probably required. Obviously, people that spend time with me in person will have the opportunity to get to know all sides of me better, and I usually try to do the same with whoever I'm with, so hopefully as we spend time together and talk and share we can come to some mutual understandings. I really don't think I'm complex, but a part of me does like to remain unpredictable.
