    Or to put it another way: "I'll believe it when I see it."

    Would it be different for ISxPs than for ESxPs, though, since theoretically it is Ti/Fi, Se, Ni, Fe/Te versus Se, Ti/Fi, Fe/Te, Ni?

    Not really. That just means we all kinda suck at it.

    haha- just kidding. Yea, it probably will be different.

Rinse, repeat. A lot of this could very well apply to..uh.. just about anything. Playing with legos, for example. Synthesizing comes from Ni, I think.
    "ISFP - Composer Producer
    Theme is composing, using whatever is at hand to get a harmonious, aesthetic result. Talents lie in combining, varying, and improvising, frequently in the arts but also in business and elsewhere. With their senses keenly tuned in they become totally absorbed in the action of the moment, finding just what fits the situation or the composition. Thrive on having the freedom to vary what they do until they get just the right effect. Take action to help others and demonstrate values. Kind and sensitive to the suffering of others."


    Yes about Ni.

    I can't remember now.. :\ She's a storywriter if you recall. Kind of likes writing characters by using MBTI. ISFP's get a lot of the common goody hero representation in many stories though (ISTPs get the badass antihero). She called it Fi-Ni angst. And channeling it by being Performer types, I guess it makes for good reading

    Never trust a man in a suit. I am sure there is more than that, I'll think about it. I always thought Ni had some play in creativity for isfp as well.

    Ni often takes the form of interest in the potentiality of something, what might happen what could be. I don't hink that functions automatically grant skills, such as painting or composing, but being able to look at a blank canvas and accept that it could become a master piece would be helpful in creativity.
    Don't make whine out of sour grapes.

    hahaha... I know I just didn't know how to type the function orders in a non-confusing way.

    I generally don't conceptualize.. For you, it'd probably be different. I think I'm more creative in the process of things...getting the juices flowing in a way. When it works in tandem with Fi and Se. I don't look at blank canvases per se (literal ones or figurative)...I just get the urge to do something first, I guess?

    Outside creativity (like general social life), I've read that Fi in IFPs is always evaulating when/where/how what's seen in Extraverted Perception is compatible, and the Tert contributes to this defensive process (personally I can get like this.. I don't value Se in an extremely flowing/receptive way all the time). Si might cause an INFP to pull away a bit (I'd like to hear their own words though).. Ni in ISFPs would cause them to embody some of their critique (how.. I dunno. In style maybe.. Or breaking into animal labs and freeing monkeys or something The sky's the limit).
