    Yeah, I don't know about that. I think you should just read the Fi section and see whether you totally, absurdly relate to it or not. (Or possibly the Ti section... or the Se section...) Then you'll know-

    cause I relate to a good chunk of the extrovert stuff- I have a tendency to lose myself and forget my needs and goals to an extent, but I would peg that more to being a nine or adhd, not introvert vs extrovert. And Fi is where I for sure do stay true to myself- for example, I have always considered the mistreatment of other living beings as wrong, and I will never sway from that, ever.

    Also the section on introverted perceivers in the Thomson book very much resonates for me. It is obvious that I fit into that category... so introvert I be.

    Thank you.

    I wonder why it is so difficult to find our type online. I mean... I'm a pretty stereotypical ISFp, if I may say so myself... however, sometimes I feel a bit more balanced between S and N, as well as F and T, than a normal ISFP. However, it is definitely my dominant function to be an introverted feeler and extroverted sensor. But I do enjoy listening to and learning philosophy... however I would rarely go on to share or openly discuss these things with others. Rather, I think about them internally and contemplate the ideas on my own. And with age, I've become much less a pushover... and in fact, I can be quite assertive and confrontational when I feel it is necessary.

    I have no idea why our type is not online. Perhaps our type don't really share or openly discuss our internal world(s) whatever they may be.

    Have you done your enneagram? And don't forget to go to the Introduction Section and introduce yourself.

    I have a long time ago... 4, 5, or something like that. Introduction section? I'll look into it.

    Typically, I'm not very comfortable sharing... but I find the internet to be a great place to disclose things I don't feel comfortable sharing in normal social settings. However, I can still be just as hurt even from online forum jabs or insults, as I can be in person. Also, because I am typing at my own pace and proof read, I feel as though I can make clearer and more concise statements then I could were I one and one with another person.

    With the mbti, I've also established comfort in knowing that I'm not weird! I'm just an ISFp. Which is why I love researching and learning about it.

    I hear you on not discussing philosophy a lot. Personally, I think it's best to just mull over what works, and try to live up to it (not always..key word is try).

    That, and I'm not good at "sounding" like a smart person..so I generally keep it minimal

    Probably a five like me since I don't feel very comfortable sharing either nor do I like to be vulunable, even online. I'm working on the vulunablity since it's more a reflection of being sensitive to other people comments.

    Yes being an ISFP is very different. When I first got here on this forum, I thought I was an ISFJ, but a very individual one. Then I realized that I grew up with very overbearing SJ parents!

    Yeah, I mean considering we're like 5% of the total population, I'd say we have a fairly strong presence, especially in what's considered by some to be an "intuitive" medium.

    I will say, however, that if I'm on this site for longer than twenty minutes, I feel very unhealthy. Sitting in front of computer=. Participating in the real physical world=
