    I can't say with any certainty that ISFP exists or doesn't exist anymore than I can with any of the types but the system seems to me to be useful and have reasonable accuracy. I have a friend whom I believe is ISFP. She is very reserved, a huge admirer of the arts although not artistic at all herself. She is very athletic. She is shy, reserved and soft looking on the surface and she is also very gentle and sweet but there is a strength to her both emotionally and definitely physically. I can see how she is similar in some ways to my INFP son. Similar but also different.

    Introversion is definitely a real thing and do not confuse it with shyness. An introvert or extrovert can be shy although it seems to be more associated with introverts. An introvert raised by extroverts will probably be more overwhelmed and stressed, which might lead to some types of anxiety or shyness as they may be pressed to do things outside of their comfort zone and this may or may not be a growth experience for them.

    If you are doubting ISFP because you doubt the validity of introversion you'd also have to doubt all of the other I-types. If so, how would you explain people who prefer more alone time, quieter activities, solitary or one-on-one situations as opposed to large groups, boisterous experiences and a frequent need to go out, do things with people and be around people?

    I'm new to this site, but not to typology.. and I'm really confused. Can someone explain what is going on in this thread? How one earth could ISFP not be a real type? It's just as real as any other of the 16 types.

    I know several ISFPs and they are not "Just" any of things mentioned in the OP. They all have lots of talents, having to do with Se, mainly. They are extremely friendly and easy to talk to, and they are very much in touch with their senses and the world around them. They also tend to like reading and more introverted activities. Laziness is definitely one of their weak points, but they can sometimes get really into their favorite activities.

    What makes me ISFP is that this thread concept is my favorite on the entire site. Not a joke.

    This is hilarious. I've heard people insult ISFPs for not having a presence, but this really takes the cake. Michael Jackson was ISFP. That's all the proof I need to know that they not only exist, but are awesome.

    I'm an introvert and I was never pushed to not assert myself. One thing I don't have in common with my type is that I like my family.

    I get my concept of this stuff from the source, Jung, and my kid has always been obviously (to me) an ISFP. He took the test at school and got INTP. My husband is obviously (to me) an ESFP. He took the test and got INFP.

    I don't think most of the tests are designed for Se/Fi users. Dichotomy tests strike me as being more S=Si and F=Fe. XSXPs, with their relationship to Ni, I think can seem pretty N-ish to themselves, just as I, with my Te, can seem unemotional to others (while internally being quite feely).

    For all reasons, cognitive function pairs are where it's at, and especially as you age, your lesser halves of the functions develop, thereby making the whole N vs S, T vs F business kind of silly.
