    I...have a friend who is extremely shy. Now, I can't say I'm not a bit demanding or a bit of an attention whore, but she would often not reply at all instead of telling a white lie. So she essentially would freeze up and not give me any information to immediately work with...which is HELL to an ESTP.

    My last relationship was with, I think an ISFP and she said she wasn't materialistic and it quickly became apparent that she was in fact very materialistic, very reckless financially. From my very limited understanding I think it might have to do with the extraverted sensing. It craves experiences in the real world and novelty, so buying lots of crap is one way of doing that, seeking out new experiences. I am just repeating what I have read.

    I am a perfectionist with my art. Don't touch it, don't criticise it. I already know its flaws. It has to visually appealing and as perfect as I can make it.

    As one data point, I'll talk about my ISFP mother. I wouldn't say that she is sensitive to criticism because she doesn't have an invested need to gain approval from other people. Her ISTJ sister used to periodically rake her over the coals on the phone, so that is the criticism that had the most potential to hurt her. She would get emotionally sad in response to it, but not because of evaluating the validity of the criticisms and how those relate to her. It was more hurt that her sister would say something to hurt her. She would know that waiting long enough, her sister would give her a subtle apology and everything would go back to normal. She mostly had to do things the way that made sense to her, so the way she managed money and plans was not about right or wrong or the 'best plan', but rather the plan that works for each specific person. My mother was always comfortable doing things the way that made sense to her and she felt that others have a right to do this as well. It was actually really great for me because she never gave me much reason to rebel. She never criticized my choice of college major or career plans.

    The only type of criticism that she offered was when she felt upset and even panicked if my sister or I started dating an asshole. Then she would say deliberately shocking things to try to make it stop. She once said that you have to shock people into hearing you. I think her own world was so autonomous, that it may have been the only way to get her attention. I always took those criticisms with a grain of salt because I understood where they were coming from.

They may also be unaware of how their behavior affects others. Taken to an extreme, this combination of behaviors can lead others to perceive them as unrealistic, selfish, or eccentric.

    Do you agree with these? Other thoughts?
    In the case of my mother she was definitely not selfish, but definitely eccentric and at times unrealistic. We lived a bit like gypsies moving around so much. When it comes to ideas and debate, I typically avoid political and religious conversations because those are the only ideas she will actually argue about. It's somewhat out of character, but I suspect a good example of the inferior Te. When I have discussed those with her, I will try to look for the underlying principle that we share and emphasize that. Then I will comment how most people are really trying to accomplish the same thing, they want the same things, but just have different ideas about it.

    There are aspects to her personality in me as well, although I'm more analytical, organized, and detached overall, and I may be more adaptable to changing my lifestyle. We both share the dream of living in a little cabin in the woods away from the world. We both love animals, do things the way that makes sense to us, are able to live with plans that are not particularly stable, don't try to control others, but just find a way to live quietly and true to oneself.

    I'm a really quiet person, but I feel beauty very deeply. People can't often tell this by looking at me. I keep so much to myself. I like to capture a perspective in my art. I want the art to say something without words, to be a picture of a thousand words.

    People don't understand me. I understand way more than people give me credit for. I often get dismissed and ignored in many areas of life. I often feel invisible. If I could just do one thing really well and move people, I think only then will they understand what's inside. I'm shy and just not as eager to speak about what is going on inside.
