    Default ISFP in politics

    Any thoughts? Advices? Comments? Anything at all?
    A search for truth is a search for a greedy perspective.

    Nah, that's not truth. That's just your bullshit ideas of truth. Truth is always inclusive. If it's not inclusive, then toughen it up and try harder.

    I don't see ISFPs being particularly prone to being interested in politics. But hey, there might be some.

    Yes, I am interested in politics. I was a political science major in college.
    Unfortunately, politics always ends up by being annoying and frustrating because it's too decisive and nothing productive ever gets accomplished.
    Lawnmowing is a more productive career.

    I'm interested in politics and I have thoughts and opinions on things, but I tend to see the point on both sides and I find the whole political process very draining. I think that an ISFP could be very good in politics because of the ability to listen, as long as they could find a way to deal with all the crap.

    i'm a bit like karli as well. i just don't think any one person is capable of making a decision that will affect many people. i'm always able to see both sides of an argument as having an equally valuable point, and am myself often divided. however, in my personal views, i'm a bit of an anarchist. not in the chaotic way, but simply in my idealist view i don't agree with government at all. but i'm realistic enough to know that anarchy simply will never work or happen. so i mostly remain apathetic to it all.

    that said, if your politics can't even express inclusive ideals and have a worldview that at least means well for others, then i'll show how much i care about politics.

    It's kind of telling this thread is two months old and has eight responses. Here is something strange I thought of while thinking of politics. Scitilop, I wonder what that could be? Some kind of Chupa Chup?

    Ooops. I did a malapropism in my previous post about a career in politics. I meant "divisive," not "decisive."
