    . It's not a general rule. Just a common trend I noticed.
    Freude, schöner Götterfunken Tochter aus Elysium, Wir betreten feuertrunken, Himmlische, dein Heiligtum! Deine Zauber binden wieder Was die Mode streng geteilt; Alle Menschen werden Brüder, Wo dein sanfter Flügel weilt.

    Heh. Most of my friends are ENxPs (It must be the rad clothing ). So I guess that's a yes. As long as they don't smell.

    The smell thing is a myth! Unless at a 3-day music festival, regular showers are normal, I swear.

    In my experience:

    My ISFP son is VERY artsy. He loves to paint and he loves photography and plays the guitar in a band. He just picked up the guitar one day and started playing it. He is always on the cutting edge of fashion. Even though I don't always love the clothes he picks, he ends up looking "cool" in a way I can't explain. He has an eclectic style, but when he puts it all together...it is very asthetically pleasing. His room is way cool. He is very down to earth. He's quiet, but can come out with such funny things that it blows my mind. He also has these crazy "older than his age" insights that are based totally on common sense. He craves freedom. He very much wants to be his own person. He hates the confines of school.

    My INFP is very abstract. He lives in his head alot. Kind of dreamy and idealist and not very down to earth. He is creative in writing and he writes wonderful stories that he composes in his head. He dresses very conservatively and not necessarily "trendy" like my son. He likes to have "causes" that he can throw himself into (my son does this to a much lesser extent.) He daydreams a lot. He is very funny, but his sense of humor is unique and original. I thought his sense of humor was weird at first.

    They are both quiet and like their own space though. And they are both very kind hearted and like doing things for other people.

    This this this. Also, INFPs tend to talk more about "weird"/strange/random what have you, things, whereas the ISFP is more practical. I mean sure, ISFP talk about "weird" things, but usually when the "weird" or "strange" or "random" whatever, thing is brought up, then they go with the flow.

    Also, ISFP tend to have a more bubbly type of vibe, whereas INFP have either a melancholy or a more subdued vibe, most of the times.

    These are all my experiences btw, take with grain of salt please.

    I'm dead even between INFP and ISFP, have a bit of both tendencies.

    Leaning towards ISFP because I'm more comfortable sharing activities with friends than going deep and meaningful. Love jobs where I can get out and use cameras, musical instruments, lighting equipment, etc. And if I wasn't so fat I'd be totally funky dressed.

    Reading both ISFP and INFP descriptions, I tend to display both..but I believe I'm more ISFP because I hate philosophy and when things get abstract, I tend to zone out and leave the matter for a while. I also learn more effectively when pictures/graphics or a hands-on approach is taught. I like to make abstract art and appreciate nature/aesthetically beautiful things very much. However, I don't have a good fashion sense, and the people around me asks why I'm always frowning(even when I feel perfectly happy), and I tend to daydream a lot of what I would like to happen in the future...so sometimes I doubt I'm ISFP.

    There are almost no ISFP videos on youtube though .
    Holy crap, that girl stole my voice & manner of speech! :eek:
    I'm far more stylish though

    I'm an INFP who is very into aesthetics, creating tangible art (if I can focus long enough to do it), and maintaining autonomy. INFPs can be as much visual artists as ISFPs.

    However, I am at core, very idealistic, obsessed with all things ethical, and use a lot of metaphor and symbolism to communicate. The physical realm can feel surreal, while my imagination feels real, and I have difficulty being in the moment.

    An INFP approach to art is likely going to be more conceptually thought out and an ISFP may take a more in the moment approach. INFPs will emphasize symbolism, and an ISFP may emphasize pure aesthetic value. An ISFP fashion designer will often say they are going to allow the fabric to "choose what it wants to become". It's sort of creating with the impulse of the moment. If it's beautiful and stirs feeling, then mission accomplished. Think of Jackson Pollack and his approach to painting.

    An INFP will likely have some complex concept (such as an entire story built around the emotion they want to evoke through the design) before they being physically making anything. It seems that ISFPs are more prolific artists in this sense, because they dive into the hands on part faster, whereas INFPs may over-think it, lose interest, and never realize their idea.
    Often a star was waiting for you to notice it. A wave rolled toward you out of the distant past, or as you walked under an open window, a violin yielded itself to your hearing. All this was mission. But could you accomplish it? (Rilke)
