    I've been called "slow" and indecisive by my family my whole life, especially my dad LOL. I take my time with everything and get very stressed out when I'm rushed or can't process things at my own pace. My own conveyor belt, haha @ayoitsStepho @OrangeAppled
    @great_bay, funny... I keep reading mysterious. Are we really that hard to get to know? @Alaska @magpie & others .. I guess I'm not fully aware of it, no one's really pointed it out..

    There are things that I don't think I should have to move quickly through as well. For example, my family sucks their food down and within 15 minutes their on to the next thing. I like to sit and enjoy my food. If there are people around me then I like talking and just being comfortable. I've been known to sit at a dinner table for 45 minutes or more when everyone else is already finished.

    I view my brain like a conveyor belt. It moves at a certain pace and everything works together to create a product. It can move faster but things are probably going to get jammed up or the machine will get over heated. When I move quickly, I tend to make more mistakes and I don't have a proper handle of my stress. I WISH I could be faster and more forward thinking
    I like how you described this. This is pretty relevant to what I'm currently contemplating and working on/through in my life. And I really very quickly go into too-much-information - overload -- stress-panic-agggh mode.

    I, however, can eat very fast. Now enjoying tea or a glass of wine on a rooftop or outdoor patio? Or extended meal in Tuscany? THAT I can savor.

    More questions...
    Are ISFPs women known for their sense of humor or being silly / dorky? I remember reading about this a few times.
    What about being raunchy?

    I'm currently dealing with all of this as well. I'm jobless and trying to figure out how to make myself more appealing to the job market. It's a struggle when I'm not naturally fast

    Without tooting my horn, I'm FUCKING HILARIOUS!
    I'm also fairly raunchy around people I know will handle it well. My humor is fairly dark and dry for the most part. I'm not entirely sure how that relates to other ISFP women, but thaaatttt'ssss ME!

    I remember this kind of thing. I'm an impatient person and it definitely drove me a little nuts at times . It was probably the single biggest incompatibility between the two of us from my side. From her side, I was too blunt or pushy probably.

    I relate to a lot of the ISFPs here who claim they like to take things easy and not feel like they are being rushed. One of my biggest pet peeves is being rushed to do things when it's not naturally up to my pace. I also don't consider myself an intellectual per se, but I do enjoy learning about various subjects and I feel there is knowledge I can gain from other people. Not sure if this is an ISFP trait or what, but it's something I noticed about myself especially since I think I may be an ISFP and still have not come to the conclusion yet. I have that 6 enneagram in my tritype, so l can be pretty doubtful and VERY indecisive, haha.

    I'm fairly certain my sister is an ISFP, and while we both share similarities, I find that she is a lot more grounded and aware of her surroundings compared to me. I have my head more in the clouds than she does and she always points it out to me to come back to reality. I would say she is much more practical minded then me. She also hates thinking about the future and likes to take life one day at a time (although she almost died at a young age from a life threatening illness, so I think this also contributes to her "live and let live" mindset.) I always thought about future endeavors since I can remember and still do. I feel the future and the past are much more exciting to think about compared to the moment, and I do often fantasize about my future and revisit past events to see what could have been if I did something different. That's where I don't relate to the ISFP description (but I do enjoy myself when I'm alone making art and listening to music and watching videos, would that count for living in the moment?). She is also much more self aware and is great at giving life advice. Everyone always comes to her when they need guidance, including her older friends. I can also find myself going off tangent a lot when conversing with her, and she finds that irritating and is much better at getting straight to the point. I'm not sure if our differences pertain to our types as I maybe could be an INFP, or maybe we are both the same type and our differences pertain to our different enneagram types, as I'm a core type 4 and she's more of a 9.

    Some similarities we do share are that we are both really good at examining details. I'm good at being very detailed in my art and have a very good eye at examining specific details on other people and my surroundings. She is also great at examining details through her surroundings and has a sharp, vivacious memory of past events and can even remember sometimes what she was wearing on that specific day.

    I have always been borderline S and N, so I find it confusing trying to figure out my type since I relate to both and I do see similarities with both ISFPs and INFPs. I have tested as an ISFP twice in school when I was younger, and now solely test as a rather highly intuitive INFP. I would fit the stereotype as an ISFP, since I'm a painter and I don't consider myself a writer or a voracious reader like INFPS are known to be. I don't think I will ever feel confident in my typing until I decide to get professionally tested and certified, haha. Sorry if this wasn't much help, since I'm not set in stone yet on my type, but I'm pretty sure my sister is an ISFP, so hopefully there is some clarity.

    My SIL is an ISFP whom I treasure. She’s also one of the woman I am most glad to have in my life.

    She is proficient at most things and learns quickly. She had never sewed until my Mom taught her 2 years ago. Now she sews all her clothes and whips up things - like a cover for a carseat - without a pattern.


    She is very easily offended. I don’t worry about hurting her feelings because I know it is inevitable and will be something I could have never predicted. She is very hesitant to communicate things directly. However, she responds to direct communication and we are even closer once things are solved.


    She has NO interest in world affairs, except if they have the potential to affect her directly. She is intensely loyal to family. So, education did not hold any interest to her until she had a child. Now she enjoys discussing education topics - IF they are potentially relevant to her life.


    She is incredibly perceptive about people and notices mannerisms, physical characteristics, traits and undercurrents to an almost eerie degree.


    Is very into her inner world or home environment. Although very friendly and hospitable, her own company is her preferred state. She can take a LONG time to make decisions or change. Even to get ready.


    She is happiest = creating. She is mostly a ‘jeans and t’ girl. But, when she feels like it - she uses make-up and clothes almost like costuming. Ornate, adventurous and beautiful!


    She’s talented with linguistics but has only a small interest in language.


    She has a dark and sarcastic side. She is very well-liked (deservedly so) but can cut to the quick in an argument and is passionate if she feels she or someone she cares about has been wronged.

    She has an incredible sense of humour. It’s observational, wry and FAST. She’s sensual and loves to savor food etc. She likes sex and enjoys humour based on it, but is also modest.


    Frugality is like a game to her. She plays with ways to save money. But, she has good taste and will splurge on certain things that she feels merit the expense.


    Self-harmed/rationed food when younger. She is profoundly aware of her faults and is protective: not letting people in easily.


    A fascinating bundle of contradictions is she! For example, she is incredibly introverted but chose to work in the Hospitality Industry with celebrities and influential people. She has a quick temper but is patient and professional in a career where people are unreasonable and demanding. People can perceive her as an extrovert but she most definitely is not.


    She isn’t easy to be married to. She has high expectations for her mate (as she does for herself), doesn’t communicate easily, feels slighted or misunderstood often and will argue even when she knows herself to be in the wrong. I don’t think my Brother wanted someone ‘easy’ to be married to as he enjoys a certain amount of conflict and drama. I have seen both of them work to be more accommodating. She is an EXCELLENT Mother.


    I feel like, life will always be a continuous unwrapping of her layers. She’s both: refreshingly simple in some ways and deliciously complex in others.

    I can totally understand why it would drive others nuts- it drives me insane! I can't stand to move and think as slow as I do. I need brain surgery over here folks!
    Go get yourself a nice ESTJ. Don't ask me why though, I just picked a type out of a hat and called it good.
