This is a discussion on Why are there no ISFJs here? within the ISFJ Forum - The Nurturers forums, part of the SJ's Temperament Forum- The Overseers category; I've noticed that all of the posts in the ISFJ forum are from other types looking to date ISFJs. Why? ...

    Why are there no ISFJs here?

    I've noticed that all of the posts in the ISFJ forum are from other types looking to date ISFJs.

    Why?

    Perhaps it's because ISFJs are polite, respectful, and kind. They are not having any problems with society or the people at large, and therefore have no need to discuss themselves on internet forums.

    INTJ - The Scientists

    So people who speak about themselves, and others, on personality forums aren't those adjectives?

    This forum is dominated by INFPs. In the second tier, there would be INTPs, INFJs, and ENFPs. There are hardly any S types to begin with, not to mention SJs. There have been several topics on this subject, but the general consensus seems to be that NFs are looking to 'discover' themselves more.

    I think it's because of the heavy intuitive influence that many xSxx types mistype -- I think there are several here, but they don't realize it or are set against it.

    Not to mention, there are ISFJs here. Like me, BehindSmile, and ChapterSeven, just to name a couple. Are you saying that the ones that post here aren't polite, respectful, and kind? lol

    I'm here to be social with other intellectual people. I have a three year old daughter, I'm a full time student, and I have no time for making friends and going out. Even if I did, I'm not really a hard core partier. PerC tends to be one of my outlets for socializing. That's why I AM here, so maybe other ISFJs have more time on their hands. :)

    INFJ - The Protectors

    Hi.

    This is actually my first post and I'm an ISFJ. I also like discussion forums, even though I might not be the most active person. I took a personality test in summer and ended up on ISFJ. I took it again later that day and was INFJ. I have taken it multiple times after, read a lot about ISFJ vs. INFJ and I believe I'm ISFJ. (Out of almost 10 tries on personality tests I've taken, I have landed on INFJ 1 time and ISFJ the 9 others).

    Then for a couple of days ago I found this forum. So this is my introduction. I'm an 18 year old guy from Norway and I hope I'll be active here.

    My mum's an ISFJ and a friend that's also an ISFJ... if they have a problem they want to express, they'll be on the phone talking to a close and trusted friend. They're usually very specific about their problems, and specific about where they're seeking help/advice/comfort.

    They're so comfy to be around.

    We make good listeners? So we are more likely to be reading than posting??

    I doubt that. Listening is typically more of an introverted 'trait' to begin with, which leads to many introverts lurking around. Good listening, however, seems to have some correlation between Extroverted Feeling.

    Pass the cheese around. Somebody might clamp down on it!

    Confessor: (very slowly and painfully) Well it's not a question of wantiing to be a mouse... it just sort of happens to you. All of a sudden you realize... that's what you want to be.
    Interviewer: And when did you first notice these... shall we say... tendencies?
    Confessor: Well... I was about seventeen and some mates and me went to a party, and, er... we had quite a lot to drink... and then some of the fellows there ... started handing ... cheese around ... and well just out of curiosity 1 tried a bit ... and well that was that.

    I dunno about the "good listening" part, but I do know that I agree more with Grey than Shannon in the fact that I don't really read everything I come across. If it's interesting to me, I'll read it, but more often than not I find myself skimming through people's posts.

    I don't really think this reflects how I listen to people though. I just can't always abide by reading long spurts of post that either don't interest me, or ramble on too much.

    Hmm. On second thought, maybe Grey is right. I'm mentally going through conversations with people.. and I tend to be the speaker. Even in class, if I'm not talking, my attention is not 100% on the other speakers.

    I agree with Lady K. Actually recently there have been quite a few ISFJs joining. For a long time I was the only one, and it really makes me happy there are more coming around.

    I definitely skim and not always completely listen or read posts unless they truely interest me. As for conflicts and debates, I tend to try to stay away from them because I hate those who argue opinions. I am fine with stating my opinion and my reasoning with intelligent and polite people, however there are a lot of trolls that will downright attack my personality simply for my opinion, so I try to stay clear of that stuff.
