    ISFPs can appear to be different people at different times and as such it can be hard for others to get to know the real you. How can you chill when people say youíre not... dunno, put it down to their misunderstanding and walk away.

    Yeah...it's annoying when you know yourself AND MBTI better than others that question your type. I know a few folks that love to think that I'm an Extrovert because I'm fairly open and gregarious and not a "quiet" or "uncommunicative" ISTP. Just annoying. Sorry that's happening to you on this board. Geez...online folks most likely really DON'T know you very well.

    I'm not sure you can chill out on it quickly however. You are an F and probably passionate about things. My ISFP friend gets his panties-in-a-bunch pretty easily about some things (especially politics and sports), whereas I seem dispassionate relative to him. That's just the ISFPs nature.

    Sarah, how about this line?

    I refuse to give free rent in my head to other people.

    Sarah, you're one of the smartest and most interesting people on this forum. You be whoever you want to be. We need more SP's anyways.
    I love deadlines. I like the whooshing sound they make as they fly by.

    Oh... I'm so sorry to hear about this. It really shouldn't have happened to you, but considering Keirsey's description of the SP temperament... are you really surprised?

    I must say, though, you're rather clever to have come up with this idea. I see your Ni works a little. This IS in fact what most people think. I've typed myself as an INFJ, and most people think I'm an IxTJ. Most of what people stereotypically associate with NFs are, in fact, Fi traits. INFJs are often mistaken for NTs, because we have (according to the model) the weakest Fi out of the NF temperament (and the strongest Ti, which is what is stereotypically associated with the NT temperament).

    According that same model, ISFP is very likely to be mistaken for an Idealist such as INFP. ISTPs would also often be mistaken for INTPs, and so on.

    It goes like this:

    INFJ leans towards NT (Ni+Ti).
    INTJ leans towards NF (Ni+Fi).
    ISFP leans towards NF (Fi+Ni).
    ISTP leans towards NT (Ti+Ni).

    This is a consequence not only of stereotypes, but of tertiary function influence. These sorts of mistypes seem most consistently predictable for ISPs and INJs.

    Does that make sense?

    That's just because Kiersey is a very different system. :P

    Sarah, you're awesome, so you can be any type you want to be.

    (Fi-doms are always sneaky anyway.)

    You've always come across as ISFP to me. That's why I asked you, Jeffster and Mo and other ISFPs to help when I was wondering about my type.
    You aren't ISFP anyway at the end of the day you're Sarah whose type within the MBTI theory is in your most humble opinion ISFP.
    Over identifying with anything is a recipe for disaster.

    Whatever type you are your posts are always informative.

    Yeah, like being "gregarious" online in a faceless conversation with people you're never going to meet in person is just like going up to people physically, introducing yourself, initiating conversations, and drawing others out. haha!

    Unfortuately, yeah. "Probably passionate"... heh! My ENFJ husband claims he knew all along that I was kind of high strung and emotionally intense underneath my facade of happy-go-luckiness. Drat those extraverted feeling types -- you can't fool 'em!
