    Is this not the Ideal Type? Perhaps the whole world needs Velvet Glasses!

    MBTI ISFPs are some weird fucked up mix of Socionics SEI and ESI with extra artist bullshit thrown it.

    Go look at the way ESIs are described in Socionics, seems a bit closer to reality. MBTI ISFPs are probably more likely to be Se subtype ESIs.

    There isn't enough reality in type descriptions. If you want to know about types, go out and meet some.

    You guys didn't notice OP's enneagram. It's 5w4 which makes him different from the usual ISFP's.

    Which type for this test question?
    14. In school, I prefer classes that are taught with an applied, sensible, humanistic approach, with topics that relate directly to my everyday life.

    ISFP descriptions suck balls. They also make us sound retarded.

    The descriptions seem to focus on E6 and E9s and say nothing of the more fiery E4, which can be a bundle of contradictions. We want passion, intimacy, artistic expression, beauty, harmony, mutual understanding, and shared experiences. I don't even have the words for it. It is in our being and its all bundled up inside, to be shared with only a few.

    @Fun in the Sun

    Agreed. I know an E4 ISFp, and your description is spot on, in my experience.

    And ISFp is an SEI in Socionics. It's the ISFj that's an ESI. I think the SEI is the better description of the ISFp I know and love: Socionics Types: SEI-ISFp
    MBTI: ENFJ
    M/B Functional Stack: Dominant--Fe, Auxilliary--Ni, Tertiary--Se, Inferior--Ti
    Ego (Jungian): FeNi
    Socionics: EIE-Fe, Beta
    Socionics Functional Stack: Program--Fe, Creative--Ni, Role--Te, PoLR--Si
    Enneagram Type 1
    Tritype 136
    Big Five: SCOEI - sxO|E|i
    Alignment: Lawful Good
    House: Slytherin (the "ethical teacher" type, i.e. Severus Snape)
    Color Code: Blue (intimacy-driven)
    Soul Type: Educator

    Sentio ergo sum.

    Well, I always consider that most of the more popular profiles were not written by isfp's. So you have a lot of outsider perspective, and then you've got the gap between what ne or ni perceives se as being, rather than the experience itself. A large gap is bound to be had.

    Also, in every SP is a mini NT, and the way that these two temperaments merge and co exist, is fairly complex.

    For instance, I've had some amazingly informative discussions regarding se/ni axis, fi-ni looping, etc.. but only in joining predominantly isfp groups.

    And isfp groups ARE some of the best groups to be a part of. (Says the biased isfp hah).
    Harmonious, relaxed, accepting, nurturing.
    Heavy emphasis on not pushing ones persona agenda onto others.

    Isfp's who manage to get a really good grasp on tertiary Ni - watch the fack out. Extraordinarily insightful, about themselves and others.


    Isfps are mbti's best kept secret. And many seem to like it this way.
