    I tried to flirt with an ISFP once at work. After six months we would actually smile and nod at each other in the hallways. We still do this and sometimes he checks out my legs.

    I just gave up after awhile. He seems very nice but we seem to be living in parellel universes. He plays in a band and seems really cool but it's like wires that never really cross. We just dont have much to talk about, and he never talks much anyways.

    I think taking an interest in my interests would work. I don't want to be analysed or drawn out. I'm quite reserved and dislike to talk about myself.
    Genuine words do have an affect on me. I appreciate physical affection and people who know my likes and dislikes. It's not important that you like the same things, just that you know. That really shows you care.
    Unless I ask, I don't need your help, I don't want to be taught anything, I don't want to talk about anything, just being aware of me and sharing experiences is enough.

    That's what's most important at the end of the day. People sharing an experience with me. Or people who know what experiences I like and help facilitate them. It's the experience, the other stuff is just a tool.

    That's what I like to do for others and that's what I like from them.

    Not to sound like a self-important ass, but I've always considered myself to be extremely misunderstood in the worst way possible. For example, I say I want to do something, and my intention is pure, but people distort it as if my intention is evil. I can't give an exact example (damn my inferior Se!), but it happens to me all the time.

    I know a few ISFPs, and I think I can understand them pretty well, but I think I have a harder time reading their emotions. I've always had a good sense of what somebody's feeling at the moment, but I've found that ISFPs are particularly hard to read what's inside from the outside.

    I'd say the most misunderstood type is INTJ.
    If you could be anything you want, I bet you'd be disappointed--am I right?

    Hmm.. no, when I don't communicate it's because I don't need to. But when I try to explain myself to some people, even people that I consider myself close to, I find myself judged or misunderstood. It causes me to just give up trying, and turn to introspection of an emotional sort to figure it out.

    Maybe there are other MBTI personalities that are more misunderstood than ISFP, but the ISFP probably feel it the most. Our emotions are mean.

    entp, the most misunderstood jokester



    anyway, you're absolutely right about ISFP feeling the most misunderstood.
    you guys really are rough on yourselves. on the other hand, if you weren't, you wouldn't force yourselves to be so nice so i like it.

    Oh yeah, when around EJs I often act ISFP or INTP-like. I say "What did you say?" or "I don't care, it's boring.".
    I mean I don't feel like replying to ridiculous questions, especially around people I can't stand.

    I spent a large part of my life with an ISFP male, almost married him, still friends...and I definitely agree that ISFP - or he, at least - shares that sort of INFP emotional "torture."

    He also thinks that there are very few people like him - probably true - and that gels with the idea of being strange or misunderstood. In fact, I think he is misunderstood because although he can talk a lot, especially about stuff he's "into," I don't think he can articulate things well to certain people, especially when he has strong feelings. People tend to get the wrong idea about him unless they know him well. Even people who know him well can be upset by him because he'll react emotionally and not explain.

    He can be very giving and affectionate, and also be the most hateful, alienating monster in the world depending on his mood. Is this an ISFP thing, or....?

    I also agree with the simple needs and wants but EXTREMELY COMPLEX emotions.
