    Do you guys really think about aesthetics that much? How many of you paint/design clothes/make clay pots etc.?

    A gruesome beast with dripping flesh
    Clings to me as a sick fixture
    My throbbing heart it gnawed apart
    It stalks and hunts me through mirrors

    I've got an interest in design. I've had an interest in the layout of a space for as long as I remember. Both aesthetics and function. I think I spent more time on room layout than average as a kid.

    I don't paint, design clothes or make clay pots. I've had a desire to learn pottery for a long time. There is a glass blowing factory around here up in the mountains that I want to visit. When I was a baker I was really into that side of it, when I wasn't buried in work at least.

    I feel I do care and think about aesthetics more than the people around me, on average. I can be lazy, not everything around me is an expression, some things are just a mess.

    But it is important to me. And I think that is key.

    I think a lot of it isn't what you do but your mindset. The isfp as an artist is an attempt to explain that isfp are somewhat introverted, yet have a desire to express themselves. It is that contrast of two different things. A turning inwards and an expression out.

    It is really comfortable to make something. Very peaceful and rewarding. I don't know why that is, but it is. It is nice to produce something that people will enjoy, will experience. And something about it being tangible gives it a more solid feel. It is more real.

    When you can cause someone to feel something through producing something worthwhile, that is an awesome feeling.

    Part of it is it isn't to direct, it is going through something. That is why isfp like to perform as well. It is expression through another thing and that leaves you free to yourself.

    That is how I see it.

    Hello guys...I'm new to this forum so I'd just like to say hi!

    I may be one of many or one of few here, but I am an ISFP with an intense devotion to music. I'm currently studying it at university and I can hardly be without it during the day...'tis my life.

    All of the MBTI tests I've taken come up with ISFP, and upon reading all the descriptions, even the negative ones, I have this shock of recognition and the feeling that someone understands me totally. It's a warm and fuzzy feeling that I have with less than 5 people in my life, so to experience this more I've decided to join here!

    Anyway, getting sidetracked...if anyone has any questions about ISFPs and music, fire away.

    What do you respect most about a person. What do you look for in someone?

    i agree with wolfy that in being an ISFP, you're sort of innately born with the lenses of an artist. it's the wonderful combination of Fi + Se + Ni. everything experienced through the senses are filtered out with feelings and impressions.

    from as little as i can recall, some of my fondest memories involved my art classes. it was always the only class i truly looked forward to. i loved all arts and crafts and did a great amount of them growing up. i started off in college as an art major. however, these days i dabble less in it. however, i've always wanted to have a potter's wheel of my own and a kiln, and hope to someday acquire this. also, in recent years, i've taken up gardening in hopes of one day having a home with a beautiful flower and vegetable garden. i lack a green thumb, but i'm still trying.

    i'm also very sensitive to my home environment and the home environments of my friends. i'm always eager to want to help redecorate, and when i see a place that isn't so aesthetically pleasing, i find myself mentally rearranging and redecorating.

    i like and respect people that are genuine. people that are open minded. people that aren't so quick to judge. people that are nice and sincere. people that are wise. people that are friendly and courteous. people that look beyond their self.

    i look for a mate that yearns for adventure and has a free spirit about them. a mate that's smart, but not pompous. a mate that has his own interests and hobbies and passions. a mate that can meet me on an emotional level and be emotionally honest with me. honesty, honesty, honesty. that's one of the most attractive qualities. next to a good sense of humor.

    Do you guys generally forgive others easily after a period of time?

    it depends... i prefer to forgive and forget. and in most situations... i do. however, there are exceptions to this. i suppose it depends on the degree of damage and also on the amount of love i have for this person, and how much love a person shows me back.

    i have one female friend who perpetually kept deceiving me over and over again. today, she pretends as though she's never done me wrong, but i've still held onto my grudge against her. she knew she did wrong by me, because she quit responding to my phone calls and quit showing her face around me for quite some time. a year or so. and whenever i finally allowed her back into my life... did deceived me again. after that, i couldn't ever forgive her or allow her back into my heart. she's probably the only person i've held a grudge against for this long. going on four years now. i know it's a ridiculous amount of time to hold on to a grudge, but the few meetings we've had in this time never went over well. and i will definitely say, that none of these bad meetings were on my part. it's sad, because we used to be so close.

    i've had a few other falling out's with other friends, but we typically always manage to forgive and forget in the end and become friends again. Fi can feel pretty assaulted at times, and can hold this against a person. but typically, we'll get over it eventually.
