    Umm.. I'll go for it. If i'm an esfp, i'm the most introverted one you'll meet! Or if i'm an ISFP, well there ya go!

    [LIST]
    [*]When outside, do you prefer to be with others or alone? What about at home? With others either way.. I'm a bit more private in my home though. I don't really like having people over, i'd rather go to their house/ out. I don't mind if roommate's friends come over for some reason though. I actually enjoy it.
    [*]What would you usually do on an average day? weekend?
    There is no average day really. Most of the time I am working or going to school. Mid week I try to get out a couple of times to do something fun. Out to eat with friends, shopping, out for a brew at the bar. I'm up for a big event mid week too once in a while. Concert or something. I will survive the next day! Often times i'm just lazy, blow things off, go for a jog, watch a show, talk on the phone, facebook, type c, text.

    Weekend I do the grocery shopping and catch up on chores. I go out definitely at least one of the two nights and sometimes both and sometimes all three!! (All three: Thursday, Friday, Saturday.) During the day I go to the beach if its nice, spend time with family and close friends, take little day trips or two day trips to visit people from further away if I can, catch up with the non- every day people.
    [*]Do you ever go to bars and/or clubs? If so, what is it you're usually doing?
    Yes I prefer bars over clubs. I'm usually sitting at the bar watching the game and talking to some guy or blowing off some guy or talking to a friend or two. Clubs or dance scenes I'm often pounding beers and shots as fast as I possibly can so I can get out there and dance comfortably!!
    [*]What type of clothes do you usually wear? Do you do it to convey something? Express you mood? or something else?
    Between clinical and work i'm in my uniform much of the time.
    When I'm at home I'm definitely wearing pjamas.
    When i'm out at class, grocery shopping, casual lunch, beach, hiking, walking the dog, getting my hair done, etc. I'm wearing a white shirt of varying styles, jeans, and flip flops, with the jacket that matches the weather. Maybe short heels and more accessories depending on the mood. When i'm exhausted i'm wearing probably a cap, sweatpants, sweatshirt. I always try to make my hair and makeup decent. When i'm out at night I wear high heels with more dressy jeans, a more tailored/styled shirt, (often black or white) and earrings and just cuter hair and such. Doesn't convey anything! Comfort and cuteness are key.
    [*]What do you spend most of your time thinking about?
    What i'm doing right at the moment.
    My job/career.


    [*]Has a man ever came up to you with a honest no-bullshit approach and spoke his mind? I'm not talking about a pick up line, I'm talking about if he's nervous he will say so, he finds you attractive he will say so, and not ask for the time or directions. (That's the way I come across; direct)

    YES. This is the most guaranteed way to catch my attention. Almost nobody uses this approach and almost everybody gets ignored.

    And I don't actually respond that much differently whether I like someone or not. Last two times guys took the direct approach, they left me alone cause they thought I didn't like them. (I was mostly just nervous.) I remember being half drunk and stumbling around in my own little corner and hearing guy say to my friend "She's beautiful but she won't talk to me! So what can I do? (shrugs)." I just kept a stumbling around and never really did anything about it. So my suggestion is that if you meet someone like this just keep persisting, especially if they are responding somewhat. hope that helps!

    So my questions:

    [LIST][*]When outside, do you prefer to be with others or alone?
    I'm perfectly happy either way. I have no preference at all. I like to have someone to talk to but I also like the freedom and independence of walking by myself. I usually meet people and dogs when I am on my walks. I have made friends that way.

    What about at home? I don't really care to be home alone (arrrrrrgh!)
    [*]What would you usually do on an average day? weekend?
    Take walks, draw in my sketch book, do some pet sitting at other people's houses, crochet, update my blog, go to church, work in my garden, go to choir rehearsal, go to historical society meetings, write in my journal, look for freelance work...
    [*]Do you ever go to bars and/or clubs?
    No, they are too noisy for my sensitive ears.

    If so, what is it you're usually doing?
    [*]What type of clothes do you usually wear?
    I usually wear pants and a shirt. When the mood strikes, I'll wear a dress or a skirt.

    Do you do it to convey something? Express you mood? or something else?
    My clothing has to be comfortable. I prefer cotton. I like to take really long walks and I don't want to spend any time thinking about how uncomfortable my clothing is.
    [*]What do you spend most of your time thinking about? Food, cats, friends, family, music, soap opera, my parents, bullet trains, bike paths, my next adventure...
    [*]Has a man ever came up to you with a honest no-bullshit approach and spoke his mind? I'm not talking about a pick up line, I'm talking about if he's nervous he will say so, he finds you attractive he will say so, and not ask for the time or directions.

    No, but I would really appreciate that.
    I'm a little teapot, short and stout. Here is my handle and here is my spout. Every time I steam up, I give a shout. Just tip me over and pour me out.

    He finally got me in here and it only took me what? 3 days?? What can I say....


    When outside, do you prefer to be with others or alone? What about at home?
    I prefer to be with friends if we are out and about. At home? I love to have Kingfisher around as much as possible, but otherwise I prefer to be alone!! I love to have a party at home once in a while, but I normally prefer to be alone.

    What would you usually do on an average day? weekend?
    I spend a lot of time at home. Reading, playing music. And I like to be outside as much as possible. I go exploring a lot. People have this idea that I'm very social and extroverted, but I actually spend a lot of time alone.

    Do you ever go to bars and/or clubs? If so, what is it you're usually doing?
    I like going to a regular bar that's warm and cozy with the same small group of friends. We talk a lot, and joke and have fun. I don't like clubs at all.

    What type of clothes do you usually wear? Do you do it to convey something? Express you mood? or something else?
    I dress simple, I go for comfort. I wear tanktops and jeans. I like to wear sarongs a lot too. And pajamas, I wear pajamas more than any other clothes!! I wear pajams everywhere.

    What do you spend most of your time thinking about?
    I don't know! I think in pictures and sounds and music a lot.

    Has a man ever came up to you with a honest no-bullshit approach and spoke his mind? I'm not talking about a pick up line, I'm talking about if he's nervous he will say so, he finds you attractive he will say so, and not ask for the time or directions. (That's the way I come across; direct)
    Yes, that is how Kingfisher got me.

    Thanks everybody.

    Something tells me I have been overlooking ISFPs a whole lot.

    The only two ISFPs I know are my mother's (INFJ) boyfriend and my friend's friend. They are guys though. They almost always don't talk as much, and really seem like they are bored, but even when I ask them directly they say they are not, or are just thinking.

    My friend who is into this MBTI/Socionics tells me that is probably the biggest misunderstanding of ISFPs; that they can come across as they are bored or not interested, but they really are deep down.

    Like i mentioned in the other thread, stereotypically speaking, the only image I have of an ISFP (by reading these responses) is a "woman in a flowery dress skipping the street singing la-la-la to herself smiling at the sun." Like a simple girl (which is not a bad thing at all), actually is a good thing to me. The reason I asked about the clothes is because two things: if there was a pattern (which I do sorta see) and if it has been matching up with what I have been going to. In other words, I wanted to see if it was close (or not) to the type of woman I'm usually attracted to; and they are dressed very casual to "classy" as I like to call it. Almost like dressing up not for any rules, but for choice, or simply "just because." This is what I go by at first glance when I meet women, so there is hardly any "I know her from a friend" type of deal going on, because it's in random common situations.

    Even with that said, I'm guessing I'll hardly run into an ISFP at a bar or club. Now the question is where most likely would I run into one? My only guess is at a art school, galleries, or maybe even fashion show; hell I like that (I even designed/tailored some of my clothes, but that's another long ENTP story!)

    What also stands out and I like the most of the responses is the whole idea of independence, which is something I want to have and give. Freedom is key, or metaphorically speaking; setting the birds free, and not caging them in. More love, less obligation.

    I'm just like that, I bet they are interested, usually I'm so quiet, I'm not even that aware of my quietness at the time because I'm actually quite intent and absorbing everything going on. I think we are observers first and foremost.

    My mom is an ISFP. A lovely woman really. I just called (I know it's eight in the morning ) and asked her these questions. I hope they help.


    When outside, do you prefer to be with others or alone? What about at home?
    I prefer to be alone although I'm warm to other people. I like socializing, but I have to limit it. I'm a home-body. I like to curl up and watch a good movie instead of going out on a Saturday night.

    What would you usually do on an average day? weekend?
    Go to the market, do some shopping, buy some flowers for the house, etc.

    Do you ever go to bars and/or clubs? If so, what is it you're usually doing?
    It's been a long time . But I used to go with friends a lot when I lived in San Diego. I loved music and dancing, so I got that in my early twenties from going to clubs.

    What type of clothes do you usually wear? Do you do it to convey something? Express you mood? or something else?
    I dress very feminine. I take my time when dressing up because the process is so gratifying. It does express my mood. I feel young and fresh and new wearing one of my favorite pieces.

    What do you spend most of your time thinking about?
    Learning, painting, death (because I'm getting older)

    Has a man ever came up to you with a honest no-bullshit approach and spoke his mind?
    Yes. Both of the men I loved in my life were ESTPs. They were very direct and always told me exactly what they felt. There was never any pretense, and I liked that.


    Mind you, my mother is in her late 40s (49), so her answers may vary from the other ISFPs on this thread due to age/experience.

    Thanks, that helped a lot.

    I'm getting a picture I'm forming in my mind of a very simple, feminine, bright, low-key type of person...

    Not a bad thing at all.

    Just the thing is...

    A donde? Where would I find a nice ISFP? Where most likely? Less likely? etc.
