Mmmm...some of your tales of adventures on the town would seem to downgrade the possibility. Not that an ISFP can't do these things, obviously, but it just seems less likely.

These are things I would say somewhat go against the I bit, too. Don't get me wrong, I love people too, but I don't think I would ever say "the more, the better." I have a tendency to lose track of people, and if I have a lot of people "in my life", then I start to feel bad for not keeping in touch with them all. It makes it easier and more pleasant for me to have a smaller group of people that I'm closer to.
I also don't love parties, in general, though I can have fun at one if it's the right kind of party, but again, I'd rather go out (or stay in) with a small group of people than some huge gathering where it's non-stop noise or something.
All of the MB (and other labels) is just that, though. It's really not that important. I can't tell ya what to do, but in my case, I just picked the one that seemed the best and stuck with it, because I don't have any desire to find a reason why it's wrong.
Something you posted awhile ago, about focusing on your environment (something like - There's a tree, there's a fence, I wonder what so and so is up to) makes me think ESFP. You derive stimulation externally, then process it.
ISFPs tend to be very busy thinking about values, how to best express things to others, the nature of relationships, etc. They get stuck in their heads plenty good - they just have to come out of them to physically express whatever results they've thought up.
You did hit some ISFP characteristics, I admit... but you seem to hit the more important ESFP characteristics. I agree, ESFP with a developed Fi and Te.
Shyness is unrelated to type.
Oh, and both types can be damn hard workers if they enjoy the work. ISFPs in particular are some of the hardest workers I've known.
Either way, you seem to be a pretty well developed SP, and that's pretty damn cool.
