    hard to say, you always have to take it on an individual basis. But they're both very similar in structure, so there is usually little friction in my experience. The only thing that tends to get lost in translation is the Ne and Se contrast. ISFPs are more 'doers', and INFPs are more subtle and hard to pin-point. Depending on how extreme the INFP's Ne usage is, the ISFP might not comprehend why the INFP seems to become involved in weird or strange things. And like-wise with how extreme the ISFP's Se preference is, the INFP might not relate at all to the ISFP's external hobbies and lifestyle choices.

    INFPs can appear more internal, I think. ISFPs can look very bubbly and experimental because they tend to enjoy doing more outside world activities.

    The ISFPs have tertiary Ni.
    Fi + Ni will produce (I have noticed) understanding.
