    Default ISFPs and extroversion

    okay, so I'm pretty sure you guys know about ISFPs and how they can be unnecessarily extroverted sometimes. I was wondering if that was a trait shared with all types or if it was exclusive to ISFPs (or SPs in general)?

    also, I noticed that when I get extroverted like that, I seem more ESTP than anything. is this true with anyone else?

    When I am very extroverted I think I am very much putting on a show, performing. So maybe esfp.

    David Keirsey says "Artisans (SPs) yearn for social impact." So, even those of us who are introverted still want to make an impact on people. We're just smaller-scale impacters.

    Rather than smaller scale I'd say it is more individualistic. More an expression of self.

    When I am very extroverted I get silly and crazy. I am easily excitable! I'm a goof.

    It doesn't feel to me like putting on a show, but it probably looks that way.

    Yes! That is what extroversion feels like to me more than performing - an overflowing expression of myself.

    My ISFP claims to actively avoid her co-workers and volunteers in doing the more solitary activities. We're both socially awkward recluses. The majority of our communication is over Skype.

    Having said that, she is very self-confident and has no qualms in initiating conversations, as long as they are on her terms. When she does come out of her shell she's very bubbly and talkative. She really is well-liked, yet she has no idea why. Meanwhile I'm in the background, hands in pockets.
    Um, yeah.

    I actually agree with that, but according to MBTI ISFPs may lack the desire to impress people.








    ...I sometimes get that desire

    What you say about her sounds a lot like me.

    Being social and outgoing isn't an extrovert trait, anyone can do it.

    True, but which one is going to get the most rewards from it?
