    So I feel I should agree with you. I would rather feel like my typings were correct and that the ISFP descriptions - and stereotypes - really are THAT terrible.

    What would you consider good type descriptions? Do any of the types have a good type description? Thanks

    I am always typed as an ISFP by these online tests but could never really believe it because of the descriptions. Some seemed to really fit me, but then there others, with chunks of the descriptions that did not describe me at all, yet seemed key to the type. To be honest I have always felt stuck between ISFP and ISFJ. The De Nardio and celebrity types function test both tell me I am an ISFJ as well as some forum members who helped me out. The descriptions can be frustrating. One description said most ISFPs are good looking and can easily be recognized from their unique personal style, like they are all good looking and they all choose personal style as a medium for expression. The descriptions I think cause a lot of problems, maybe not, I don't know. Apparently they do. Fuck em'

    We're not supposed to use hard swear words in places like avatars on this forum, by the way.

    Avoiding Keirsey would be a start.

    Thanks for the tips! I will switch over to something a bit more tactful.

    I don't mean to pry, but why would you even make the eyes?

    We are the serious, deep, hands-on, soulful artists. ISFp socionics seem like friendly, slacker artists that paint happy little trees. Tert ni looks deeper than that.

    The depth though is expressed aesthetically

    Bringing inner beauty outward, showing inner beauty and beauty of the object out, kind of enhance it through art but to show it as things really are.....jesus i suck at decribing things

    And then there's those of us with few aesthetic sensibilities - I like beautiful things as much as anyone else, but I can't draw or decorate for shit. Apparently I'm a pretty good writer, though...not sure how good I am at physical descriptions. Maybe I should try to write some and see what people think.
