Eh wrong...
I can be very aggressive if I feel like it.
Don't let the stereotype fool you.

I've had periods when I've tried to hide my interest too much,
I've had periods where I've tried to show my interest too much.
I've been on most of the territory in between too.

You are trying to think of the ISFP label as a one size fits all.
Truth be told that is a very bad thing to do especially for dominant introverted judgers.
Our identity is to strike out our own path.
It can manifest in a myriad of different ways.
All from super shy and reclusive all the way to direct and in your face.

Sorry to make your world very complicated, but it is not that easy. ;p

I think that all of these are ISFP traits--problem is, we may exhibit all of these towards one person over time, thus sending a mixed message that confuses. I know I've done that, and I'm sure many other (esp. male ISFPs) have done... There's the rub...

Yeah been there done that! XD
The reason is probably that when we feel an emotion it becomes real for us.
So feel shy become shy.
Feel confident become confident.

Like yesterday I was in an "I'm right, everyone else is wrong mood".
Now I'm thinking that I was kinda over the top and narrowly fronting a perspective.
Cause when you sleep you feelings reset and you start over with a new set of triggers moving you in new directions.
Of course if your day is a routine the deviation might not be all that, but still it will vary.
