Can you give me examples of the "highly practical, cynical and bitter" ISFP ?

"Some ISFPs who are in the habit of not expressing their needs and feelings find themselves in situations throughout their life where they feel overshadowed, overlooked, or even "tread upon" by others. Highly practical and cynical by nature, these feelings may cause the ISFP to become bitter, and to either give up on their relationships, or to start using their relationships for their own personal gain. Although this problem is observed sometimes in the ISFP type, it does not seem to be present in those ISFPs who consistently express their feelings to those closest to them." (ISFP Relationships)

I have read this page over and over again and that bit doesn't make sense to me, and yet I imagine that if it's written on a website that is generally correct on most types, then it must be correct too. In that case, why have I never seen it? I have had an ISFP friend for 11 years, I have gone out and been friends with an ISFP for a year. I've never seen it. In fact, my biggest complain about the ISFPs in my life is that they sometimes have absent-minded opinions on things, but this goes hand in hand with their peaceful views on everything. How is that being cynical, bitter and practical?

Could you give me examples of ISFPs you know (or yourselves) who became all those things and why it happened?

ISFP's are the literal definition of 0 to 100...
I feel like I've become like this. I feel like isfp's main reason for living is to "survive" the basic principle in life, it's too complicated to think that "What is the meaning and my purpose in life?" the answer is simple, just like all the lived? Did you ask for this? Nah, but you're here, so live through with it and survive, then you die, it's just a simple cycle.

I feel like the main reason why I've come to this state is that I stopped trusting people, I've set up my boundaries (probs pretty high HAHA, that there's no single person I've let it) ...I can't handle being vulnerable and open to other people anymore. I have no one who I call "Home". I don't see it as entirely sad, it's just....I feel like ISFP's are too accepting and sensitive. We accept other people way too much, that "unconsciously" we expect other people, or we seek for someone who will accept us for who we are too, because that's just fair..., no matter what we matter what choices we make...that there's good in us because they know our capability because they know the extent of what's immoral for us. I still socialize with people, I still have my "friends" they don't notice anything much of a difference, but for me there is....I just know that I need people, I need connections to survive in this world, since it's helpful and practical. But as said, I shouldn't take it deep and personal, just an arm length.

Maybe because ISFP never judges. They literally don't care...don't give a fuck- hence, there's no line for judgment right? I have no moral compass, I have no belief of what is truly right nor wrong, all I have is reasons and consequences. Another reason is, sfp's superego is NTP, (I'm talking about social engineer).
