Qualities of both the ISTP and ISFP appeal to me personally. I think there is a little, tiny ISTP inside me that doesn't get to do much, but I have a secret craving to build instruments and machines and be connected to how the concrete world actually operates. I'm not, but sometimes it seems that would be pretty great.
Sometimes I wish I were lighter in my heart like perhaps an ISFP would be. I think my mother could be an ISFP. She has had an incredibly hard life, but there is a way she is completely free of bitterness and has no desire for anyone's harm. She has a childlike purity and fun when she isn't sad. She has none of that anger or payback, but is always ready to start again with a new sense of hope. It's one of the most beautiful things I have ever known or witnessed.
