    Well then there ya have it! If he's not confident, he wont be confident in what he says so he'll be second guessing himself to the point where he has no idea what he wants to say anymore.

    boom bam, i got it

    I don't think so. Being an ISFP may fuel that he's not talking, but I think it has more to do with his lack of confidence.

    Is it just me or is it all of us?

    I have an ISFP friend. And every time anyone talks to him he just loses his tongue.

    This is an example as to how annoying it is to talk to my ISFP friend.

    He - (Enthusiastically) i saw a girl at my bio lecture.
    I - yeah is she cute?
    He - yes, but.........
    I - but what?
    He- she is, you know, she is............... she went
    I - (PISSED OFF) she WHAT???????
    He -i was.... when she got.....
    I -(EXTREMELY ANNOYED) you were what????? about to squeeze her butt???
    He - Noooooooooooooooooooooo. i went..... then .... the lecturer
    I -ohhhh you went to talk to her?
    He -YESSSSS!!!
    I - but then the lecturer came???
    He -yes, yes, yes
    I - so you couldn't talk to her?
    He -yes.. and she was wearing green and you know, you know.... and ... you
    I - (completely lost and infuriated) what the???
    He - stares at me and smiles
    I -ohhh you were gonna comment about what she was wearing because it was beautiful?.
    but when you were going to say hi, the lecturer came so you went and sat?
    after the lecture she quickly left, so you couldn't talk to her?
    He - happily nods as if he nailed the girl.
    3 years later he still hasn't spoken to her.

    Gosh I get so annoyed when talking to ISFPs.

    Ps: we have been friends for about 5 years.

    so yes. the answer to your question is yes.
    heh

    This is an introverts most defining characteristic, in my opinion. I love people. But after about 2 hrs of actually passing for an extrovert I lose steam and it becomes very difficult for me to find words. At that point, for some reason I need to withdraw and be alone in my thoughts for a time in order to have the energy to extrovert again. This does not mean I'm sick of you. I simply don't have the energy to converse anymore.

    so yes. the answer to your question is yes.
    I promise you if you had spoken more gently / quietly then he would've been able to express himself much easier. sounds stupid, I know, but whenever someone has an angry tone with me my mind just goes COMPLETELY blank and goes into a sort of "oh shit oh shit oh shit he's mad oh fuck make him happy oh fuck god what do I do he looks so mad at me oh shit fuck".

    I've gotten people angry over this same thing, but one thing you have to realize is that it's extremely hard to control.

    This is an ISFP thing. My girlfriend's and ISFP, and in the beginning I used to think she wasn't too bright because our conversations would go just like the OP's.

    I read in a personality type that ISFPs aren't the best with words in terms of describing how they feel.

    I had a similar situation with my girl last Saturday. We were on our way to a party of one of her girlfriends. Last time this girl gave us directions, they were bad. So we get some bad directions this time! I get to a dead end, and her GFs directions don't indicate which way is next. My girlfriend volunteers- 'You can go left or right'. DUH! How is that helpful? Those are my only 2 options! LOL. As my co-pilot I expect something more than that.

    That's just an example of some of my communication experiences with her.

    As an ISTJ I do expect very clear, to the point communication, so in the heat of an argument, or even on the phone, I get very irritated in hearing her ramble on.

    Don't get it twisted- I love her, it's just a nuance of our growing together. I definitely think this is an ISFP specific thing!
