Mostly from reading type descriptions and a book which explained in detail the differences between I/E, S/N, F/T, P/J.wow. so how did you get to your true personality?
Haha, I think it's hard to explain as well. Found this on the Internet!:interesting. could you expand your knowledge on the N function? to me it's like latin, i dont get it..hehe
But ISFP's are also very messy in their surroundings, as I understand it.ISFP is very aesthetic about their surroundings, and INFP is more focused on the inner dreamworld.
ah thank you so much for your explination! it makes sense.Mostly from reading type descriptions and a book which explained in detail the differences between I/E, S/N, F/T, P/J.
A lot of introspection on what I naturally did as a kid, and what was adapted behavior later.
I am very close with S/N, but I think S has an edge.
I think any type has the potential to be artistic. Art is just expression, but we're all going to have a different approach.
For instance my art focuses on realism and the immersion of the senses, whereas an INFP might have a more whimsical style.

i guess labelling with names is a bit narrow-minded since various of personalities can embrace the different titles...Haha, I think it's hard to explain as well. Found this on the Internet!:
"Do you pay more attention to information that comes in through your five senses (Sensing), or do you pay more attention to the patterns and possibilities that you see in the information you receive (Intuition)?"
To me, that sounds like N's are creative. They pay attention to possibilities.
I'm interested in music, and find it easy to practically re-compose something I've heard. But I'm not good with creating and inventing entire new pieces of music. I'm not artistic like that. And I have no desire to do it. Not sure about why. If I were to do it I think I would do it in a very logical manner. Put all the things I like together and get something unique out of it.
I don't really know how to explain the N-function. Don't think I use it much.
Not really modernism, I find a lot of modern art rather ugly and hard to understand, actually...ah thank you so much for your explination! it makes sense.
good luck with your art. realism is interesting, i can imagine that it must be focusing a lot on modernism.

I guess by realism I meant 'realistic' in the sense of real, beautiful subjects, and detail that makes you feel as though the subject is real. I don't really use hidden meanings or symbols unless someone else gives me the idea first. Most things just stand for themselves and convey the sheer reaction of my senses. I am trying to get the viewer to see things as I do, through my eyes, and have the same reaction.
Sure, here is a good example by Norman Rockwell:aha
hehe okay. can you name other artists that are like you? anyone super famous?
What he said...Why are ISFPs considered the artists? I don´t know about others but for me it is because I love to create but have little interest in conveying some kind of meaning in anything.
Don't dismiss that first alternative too quickly, based on our discussions.:wink:I am an ISFP (as close as I can tell), and very artistic.
I also have tested as an INFJ, ISFJ, and INFP.
The myth that the J/P dichotomy being connected to cleanliness and orderliness is just that, a myth. J/P only can tell us whether we prefer our outer lives to be structured or open. Besides as I have always told INF or T types, they seem to put a great deal of emphasis on what is considered an inferior function when referring to their auxiliary function for doing things. There is no guarantee that we can and do develop our auxiliary functions, which in that case you have to depend on the one definite and most differentiated function (the dominant). If you look at it from that standpoint, Ps dominate with a judging function (Ti or Fi) and Js dominate with a perceiving function (Ni or Si). The Fe and Te (ergo J), and Se and Ne (ergo P) cannot assume greater power of the dominant function for introverting types.My room is messy, but full of nice things to look at.
I prefer things organized (S) but I don't have enough "J" to clean regularly on a schedule, so it doesn't really get done.
I don't really stress about things... I can always move to another room of the house, or even better outside where things are beautiful and nature takes care of its own mess.
