What do you have to do to REALLY break through to the ISFP?
I have an ISFP friend who is a really amazing person, but i think majorly depressed. She has these depths that she keeps to herself, yet she sheds enough light on them that sends me the message that she is just dying to break free, dying for something to discover her. Yet, I sense that she consistently cocoons herself and pulls away, or at least keeps to herself too much to ever establish something really substantial. I know her self-esteem is not the highest.
I can't help but be drawn to her, though. She is really unique and beautiful, i just wish she could see what i see. I have offered my unconditional affection. I dont think she is the best at expressing, or at lesat doesnt always feel comfortable. But how can you tell you are appreciated by an ISFP? We go on random adventures, and have interesting talk..where i know she opens up. I just wish she knew how i felt. I have strong feelings, even some romantic, but i can never tell if they are reciprocated. I get mixed messages, which could be a symptom of her own internal back and forths. I wish i could tell her how i feel, but i am afraid this would push her away..... anyways, how do you know if an ISFP likes you, especially when they are guarded, and inhibited quite often?
...their elusive mysteriousness-- so torturing! such a masochist i am..hehe
