    Default is this typical ISFP behavior?

    I have been lurking for a while and I am curious to know what you guys think. I want to explain what I did today and tell me if this is typical for my type...I'm just really curious!

    -I sleep until there is a reason to get up. If there is none I get up when I'm rested. And I HAVE to lounge in the bed for at least 10-15 minutes whether I have somewhere to go or not. Therefore, I am always late.
    -My daughter and I had Klondike Bars for breakfast this morning.
    -I feel horrible when I have to yell at my kids so I usually don't.
    -I get annoyed when my ISTJ husband starts his cleaning, organizing and constant movement when I'm relaxing...it messes with my chill. I usually get up and leave the room.
    -I cried my eyes out today because I watched a movie about a man who was wrongly convicted of rape-I just couldn't imagine that happening to my son and how unjust the law can be. I was really crushed!
    -Watched a sun shower and wondered if there was going to be a rainbow.
    -When I'm out at night and when I see homes with just a dim TV light glowing -I imagine them being nice and cozy in their beds...it makes me feel fuzzy.
    -I like sleeping with my kids because they're cuddly.
    -I never, ever make plans because my mind changes like the wind. If I'm not going to be leaving in the next 15 minutes I don't both committing myself. I also have no qualms with saying, "I changed my mind" or, "I don't feel like it" I feel obligated to nothing.

    I remind myself of a cat. Am I a true blue ISFP?

    good to know! In the past I used to really stress myself out trying to understand why I do the things I do and would do all sorts of things to change it. I don't like the "leisurely" part of my personality. If I could change it, I would in a heartbeat.
    That and the inability to commit to things.

    It's good to know that there are other people out there that are like me.

    Yup, I can pretty much relate to all of them except for the kids part since I have none. Hehe. :P

    Heh. I'd say so. I do a lot of those things too. I love the comment about the sun shower and rainbow. And the one about the houses with the TV. Actually, I love pretty much all of this.

    My wife and I are both SP and we really have to work up to cleaning the house. Sometimes it takes a while. A really long while.

    luckily, I am married to an ISTJ...he is very organized and tidy. The house never has the opportunity to get messy-if I set down a glass he's already whisked it way. Also, I am a very laid back parent. I really like to play with my children instead of doing all that disciplining. I mean I do it if things are getting out of hand but I'm usually pretty easy going. My husband says they need to learn responsibility (they are 3.5 and 7 months old). I say let them live-they're just babies. If I were a kid, I would want an ISFP parent I think.

    As far as my daydreams go, they can get way out there! As a kid if I were to see a rainbow I would be all over the neighborhood trying to find the pot of gold at the end. I remember I had gotten into so much trouble because I went missing for so long. I thought looking for leprechauns and gold was a pretty good excuse to get lost for a few hours. I must say, my imagination is one thing I love.

    I also find it funny how I notice things that are oblivious to others. Today for instances, my husband and I were standing on our front porch. I noticed a man dusting off his dash board with a paintbrush and using a squeegee to clean his windows, from the inside, at a stoplight. I thought my husband took notice and when I turned to him and asked if he saw it he had no clue what I was talking about! I am the person you want with you when something is about to go down...I will take notice and figure out how to get us out of the situation, FAST. I can't understand how people can be so out of tune with their surroundings sometimes!

    Oh, I finally found someone like me(though I don't have kids)! I used to think that I'm too innocent and lazy..it helps to know someone is also going through the same experiences

    I'm happy to read that "the inability to commit to things" is a part of your character and not something you do on purpose, because I've had to deal with this a few times with an ISFP that meant much to me. She would say, "I'll keep in touch", or "I'll do this," and she wouldn't and I felt like she had been a phony all along and saw in it a serious lack of respect. I've come to realize she meant well but would forget and not keep her word in the end.

    Are you aware that this hurts people?
