    I was a valedictorian senior year of high school (one of 14, lolz -- hey, my H.S. was full of over-achievers), and also excelled at math and science courses. I'm also smart with budgeting and time management. There are probably tons of other things as well - stereotypes. But honestly as far as many type descriptions, I relate very much to them. It's just many of the stereotypes tied to F/T and P/J that I don't relate to.

    ISFP's aren't 'supposed' to be skilled at these sorts of things.

    How do I not fit the description. Hmmmm?

    -Not particularly athletic, not very good reflexes or hand/eye coordination
    -Not a risk taker, I would consider myself a weiner
    -According to some, I actually have a talent for writing and people keep telling me I am deep or thoughtful, but I am just faking it supposed talent for verbal communication too
    -Not able to excel in everything that deals with the senses. For example, when I cook, it is hit or miss and I wasn't the best musician. Maybe if I had chosen a different instrument
    -Not materialistic, prefer to live simply
    -No real personal expressed through clothing, hairstyle, etc....
    -Not really good looking
    -Have/had a tendency to get lost in my imagination
    -Use metaphors kind of a lot
    -I don't know what they mean they ISFPs are one person one day and another the next

    to me, planning seems pointless because there is really no way of knowing what is going to happen and any alteration makes your detailed plans useless. however, i am almost always the most prepared person of the bunch, which requires thinking ahead. this always seemed fundamentally different from the people i know who want to get into the details of what's going to happen and what they plan to do from a long ways off.




    that one's pretty accurate for me, personally. as long as it isnt harmful, im always looking to broaden my scope of perspective by experiencing new things. just today, i took some vicodin after going to the dentist and it was the first time i had taken it... even something stupid and relatively unimportant like that seems novel to me since it's a new experience.

    I have come to a similar conclusion. Never a planner, but honestly I agree that planning is a futile effort. I mean I guess it is good to some planning obviously, but life will always throw a curve ball at some point. In general I feel people shouldn't get too attached to their plans because life probably isn't going to work out the way you wanted it too, which means it could be better then you ever could have known if you had stuck to your plan.
