I'm kind of curious about this description from the Kiersey website..
Composers are just as plentiful as the other Artisans, say nine or ten per cent of the population, but in general they are very difficult to observe and thus greatly misunderstood. Very likely the difficulty comes from their tendency not to express themselves verbally, but through their works of art. Composers are usually not interested in developing ability in public speaking, or even in the art of conversation; they prefer to feel the pulse of life by touch, in the muscles, in the eyes, in the ears, on the tongue. Make no mistake, Composers are just as interested as other types in sharing their view of the world, and if they find a medium of non-verbal communication-some art form-then they will express their character quite eloquently. If not, they simply remain unknown, their quietness leaving their character all but invisible.
Bold part emphasized.... because it's depressing.
So....verbal communication is not the ISFP's forte apparently. They channel much of their thoughts into art. And if they don't, they're... invisible.
Anyways, I'm not happy with my art. I used to draw, then picked up music in my teens. I've also had an interest in acting.. Nothing's really come out of any of them. And nowadays, my main artistic interest, music, is....just running dry. I can't even enjoy it by myself. I'm suffering a block. I'm bored of the riffs I'm playing. I've run out of people to play with, who might spark up new ideas. Sigh.. there's a lot I'd like to say, but I'll cut myself for now.
I'd like to know what your "art form" is.. how you express yourself.. and if you feel fulfilled? And if it's not a direct art form (like painting, music, theater, dancing), then maybe it's something more common that you feel you're artistic about... I'd like to know about that too. That is, if you can view any activity as artistic.
There was another MBTI description that was along the same lines as the above.. It basically said it was a shame if an ISFP remains silent. So what can we do if we're in this dilemma..? Should I just reconfigure myself to not even be ISFP at all?
