From reading the profiles of different personalities, it makes it seem like the only types viewed as creative or capable of doing artwork are P types or xNFx types.
I think that all types can have interests in all areas; it's not exclusive to specific types. I also find it annoying when people assume all ISTJs are like robots and have no emotions whatsoever. Sure they may make decisions based highly on logic rather than emotion, but that doesn't mean that they are heartless robots.
Personally I love to draw, (although I am not very good). I also play a few musical instruments (Not wanting to brag, but I am approaching advanced level... ex. usually advanced repertoire for piano is grade 8 RCM+) And I love to dabble in writing songs.
I've also always wanted to write a book and have many ideas going. I don't like how people associate these certain activities to specific types.
Do any of you agree with me? I tested ISFJ and it doesn't say anything about art music or writing in the description, and I find that those things are a big part of my life. I also don't remember seeing anywhere that ISFJs love learning/school, and that is a huge part of my life as well.
I thought about a year ago that maybe I was INFJ instead, but decided that I was not... I was just being hopeful because at that time I thought it would feel cool to have the "cool rare personality type." And on top of that, the description of ISFJ seemed to fit me more. Now I am just torn, I'm not sure what type I am.
(Sorry... I kind of switched topics halfway through. It would be great if you could answer both question! :P )
