    My ISFJ friend is definitely the most selfish person I know (even more than all of my NTJ friends, of which I have at least 5). He's a guy though.

    Ditto.

    I've always considered my ISFJ friend, who I've known since middle school, to be abnormally selfish, self-aggrandizing, and stingy. When we would get in trouble together as kids she would quickly put the blame on me as she is deathly afraid of authority. And if we worked on a project together she would try to take all of the credit even if the idea was mine. I quickly learned that she was not to be relied on to put out a good word for me, unless she figured it would help her. The only time she was completely selfless was when it came to her family, and especially her little brother, who I'm sure she'd die for.

    I think selfish ISFJs are not that uncommon, since I can think of a few right now without even trying. An acquaintance, who I had take the MBTI a few days ago and came out ISFJ like I suspected, is similar but not as bad.

    My sister and grandmother acts selfish when they're not feeling good. Wich usually is when things aren't neat around their houses or people around them act way to gregarious or something. Although I recognize myself much in their attitude. ISFJ's are more directly non-caring but an INFJ would probably do stuff even if they don't believe it (apathetic).

    i dont understand the purpose of the question
    MY purpose was to learn something about ISFJs that I could not believe was true.
    Apparently, I was wrong.
    I use MB typing in my every day life to help me understand people better, and get along with them better, and I also use it to help other people figure out their type.

    I am not sure that I even know some ISFJs.

    But I don't see why they can't be this way. Just like everybody else.

    I think this could happen to unhealthy ISFJ's. Since they have the 'need to be needed' trait, if they don't get that attention, they might feel that they're doing everything right yet still not being loved/needed. I think this could make some feel angry or selfish, thinking that they've tried to do this or that, yet they feel they can't succeed in gaining what they want even though they deserve it.

    Sure ISFJ's can and will be selfless when everything's working right in their personal life. But I think that when an ISFJ's emotions are unbalanced, selfishness is definitely something that can be a result of that inbalance.

    ISFJs are super sweet and caring but I have yet to meet one that didn't act like a brat and I would call them emotionally selfish for sure if not emotional vampires! This is based on at least a half dozen of them..

    Yeah lol. The one main ISFJ in my life (my sister) Can be EXTREMELY selfish. She tends to not give a shit about others and then blame them for their short comings...But at the same time maintain a self-righteous attitude that makes her out to be the victim. Annoying as hell.

    You called.
