The ISFP personality has an extremely well-developed ability to appreciate aesthetic qualities. You have passionate and intense feelings. You are very quick-witted and spatial in your thinking. You are probably more spiritually aware than most people, and are more in touch with your soul than others. Also you are usually good listeners who genuinely want to hear about someone's problems, and genuinely want to help them. These are just some of the ISFP factors that comprise your list of personality traits you can use to find a career that is a natural fit.

Introverted with Sensing, Feeling and Perception. Your career personality profile would include the following natural tendencies:
• Warmth and sympathy (emphasis on interpersonal values)
• Adaptability
• Realistic grounding
• Great depth of feeling
• Very personal approach to life
• Idealism
• Sense of aesthetics
• Keen sense of detail

There are more natural traits making up your self personality profile but those above indicate a natural ability for careers where you help others in a very pragmatic way. You naturally communicate kindness in a ways that make you exceptional candidates for working with people in need, children or animals. Your idealism and deep feeling make you particularly sensitive to the suffering of others.

The ISFP personality type will move naturally towards careers that let you be consistent with your strong, inner values, and is something you care deeply about and want to contribute your energy and talents to; work that is done with others in a supportive and affirming climate where you are a loyal and cooperative member of a team. In addition, work that gives you freedom to work independently but nearby other compatible and courteous people, and where you don’t feel restricted by excessive rules, structure, or inflexible operating procedures, you will gravitate towards.

Examples of careers often chosen by your type as a career personality profile fit include:
• Storekeeper
• Surveyor
• Clerical Supervisor
• Dental Assistant
• Bookkeeper
• Machine Operator
• Cleaning Service Worker
• Police Detective
• Carpenter
• Licensed Practical Nurse
• Radiological Technologist & Technician
• Legal secretary
• Cook
• Physical Therapist
• Runaway Youth Counselor
• Waiter or Waitress
• Medical assistant
• Typist
• Police Officer
• Food Service Worker
• Health Service Worker
• School Bus Driver
• Private Household Worker
• Nursing Aide
• Fire Manager
• Lifeguard or Recreational Attendant
• Secretary
• Construction Worker
• Corrections Officer

• Office Worker & Clerical Worker
• Electronic Technician
• Health Education Practitioner
• Teacher Aide
• Public Health Nursing
• Director of Religious Education
• Laboratory Technologist
• Library Attendant

• Engineering Technician
• Electrician
• Teacher: Grades 1-12
• Media Specialist
• Mechanic
• Child Care Worker
• Health Technologist or Technician
• Medical Technologist
• Religious Order Lay Member
• Executive Secretary and Administration

Your type is found much less often in careers that are highly structured and in abstract fields such as management, engineering, and law. You are also less often attracted to careers that require a great deal of tough-minded analysis of symbolic and technical material and where the skills of logical analysis and organization are constantly called for, such as:
• Student Personnel Administration (college)
• Chemical Engineer
• Biology Scientist
• Physician: Pathology
• Actor
• Research Assistant
• Psychiatry
• Religious Educator
• Minister
• Judge

• Health Administration

This one's odd because it calls you an artist and then does not acknowledge art as a possible career choice. Sure it's difficult, but it shouldn't be dismissed altogether. :crazy:
That's a good point! you're the Artist! Yay! Can I do Art for a career then? Ermmm .... No, the list says you can't... lol...

I don't know about least likely to pick architecture. ISFPs are artistic and spacially aware, which is what you have to be to be an architect. The career guidence teacher in my school said it would be my most suited job.. I'm sure that's true for ISFPs in general..
