  4. ISFP Writing Style

    SP's Temperament Forum- The Creators
    I actually really suck with the long descriptions of sensory details and personal feelings in my writing, unless I'm writing them down as they happen or as I'm feeling them in the moment, and even then they aren't very florid, like INFP writing, just eloquent and concise. That's why if I'm...

    Shall I…. Shall I be the hero, the knight, the king? Or will I wear the robes of darkness, as the bells of death ring...

    I'm writing a story, and using the MBTI to flesh out the characters. So here's a short conversation between two characters: “So, how did you die, Twee?” “I was debating with someone and I guess they didn’t appreciate it.” “What did they do?” “They shot me.” “That’s what ended up killing...
