    I consider clothes and make up to be some form of art too... Some clothing designers can be real artists and make amazing things with textures and colors in order to create clothes...

    I didn't see anything on who or what put together this poll. I also agree that a lot of ISFP's are mistyped as ENFP, INFP and even INFJ.

    Most ISFPs I know enjoy art in some form. If its not visual art, then its something else like music or dance.

    There are several ways to appreciate art. I think ISFPs might be less inclined to look at the deep symbolism behind it unless they have strongly developed Ni. They might be the ones more likely to appreciate it because it looks beautiful or appreciate it for the mastery in technique used to make it.

    Most, but not all. If there are exceptions, then art is not a defining characteristic of the type. Nature boy/girl seems closer to a validly defining trait. Like the Double Rainbow Guy.

    I do think art is a defining trait, just that some ISFPs might not categorize cosmetics, hair styling, fashion, music, acting, dancing, cake decorating, cooking, or whatever as "art appreciation."

    Double Rainbow guy is an ENFP, dude.

    Could be, but I'm thinking about this quote from PersonalityPage.Com:

    "ISFPs have a strong affinity for aesthetics and beauty. They're likely to be animal lovers, and to have a true appreciation for the beauties of nature. "

    Yeah, but being a fat couch potato doesn't necessarily equate to ISFP.

    Yep that totally makes sense, it's just that Fi/Se (or Se/Fi) tends to appreciate aesthetics in general or at least sensory impact, so I'm pretty sure with many ISFPs that goes beyond nature.


    I like this ISFP description, which is a mix of Keirsey with input from several other sources, and it pretty much makes ISFP sound like what one would call "the artistic temperament" in an old fashioned sense of the word i.e. a very emotional, passionate, sometimes too impulsive or reactive person who is strongly aware of their senses. The Exuberant Personality. I very much relate to this description, more than any I've ever read.

    On the other hand, I'm sure many t.v. watching couch potatoes are ISFPs too, and since there are SO MANY ISFPs, obviously they're going to have different levels of intelligence and education.

    I like the nature child thing, though, don't get me wrong. It's one of the primary things I like/resonate with about non-cognitive ISFP descriptions.

    Agreed. That kid could be a lazy ISFJ who is comfortable in his routine, or an INxx who is addicted to anime cartoons.
