    Okay, I am curious here but if the question irritates those in this thread, then ignore it.

    Why do things like picky eaters or bad teeth bother you? They don't affect you (it seems to me) so I have a hard time understanding how they could be signifigant enough to end up on your pet peeves list. I would like to understand ISFP better so I am asking instead of simply wondering and making some assuption of my own.

    I understand the "dirty people" thing because I hate visiting people who keep dirty bathrooms because if I have to use the bathroom while I am there, I will have to deal with it or if they keep a really horrible kitchen, it will be awkward to deal with them asking me for dinner and such. So I understand that, but not the picky eater or bad teeth. Those things seem more limited to the person themselves.

    Haha, that's a good question. I knew a girl who absolutely refused to eat mushrooms. She hadn't tried one in her life. She would go on about how much it disgusted her thinking of putting one of them in her mouth. This profoundly annoyed me for some reason. Maybe it bothered me that she was irrationally unwilling to try something new? I don't know.

    Now that I think about it though, other people's eating habits are really none of my business. The next time I'm at the dinner table with a picky eater I'll happily scoop their leftovers on to my plate

    The underlined bit seems to make sense. Thanks for understanding my curiosity in this and answering. I just want to understand why a person would think this, what would motivate it, I was not trying to judge in anyway.

    Ooh! It's a thread about me! Those are the best kind!

    I plan to actively post here...

    Well, that is until I become obsessed with something else and probably disappear as quickly as I came. But then that's just my temperament, right?

    I think that really depends on the ISFP because I don't need to have people censor themselves when talking with or around me.....

    Oh hello! Another ISFP! Welcome!

    Oh and you're completely right...definitely don't have to censor yourself around all ISFPs.

    I get the feeling from several MBTI-based forums that more than a few folks tend to (without much further analysis) bunch many incredibly flaky F types into the ISFP category and then go about thinking that we're possessed of incredibly low intellect.

    It does get rather patronising.

    Hmmm..I wouldn't know. The only other (sorta) MBTI-based forum that I've read is the one on Personalityzone.com, which is an offshoot of Keirsey's web site. And that forum is so dead that I can't really determine if anybody does that.

    Which incredibly flaky F types are you talkin' about? As long as we're patronising.
