    ISFJ - The Nurturers

    Cookies inside!

    Hey guys! Okay, the most important question:

    What cookie would you like?

    Lol, now you've answered that, it's MY turn to answer the questions. Heheheh.

    1) What aspect of your personality made you unsure of your type?
    I'm actually quite sure I'm an ISFJ, but I also score quite high on Fi, which leads me to get INFP/ISFP at times. After reading the descriptions of those two, I feel there are things that fit me from all three types. So, I feel I'm a mixed bag and I hope to gain some insight.

    2) What do you yearn for in life? Why?
    I really want to publish a book. For writing, I've always wanted to write. It's kind of a dream for me. I also want to be a positive influence on people. Finally, I want to do God's work.

    3) Think about a time where you felt like you were at your finest. Tell us what made you feel that way.
    I guess when I was sixteen-seventeen. I was brimming with hope for the future.

    4) What makes you feel inferior?
    When I'm not good at something or not confident.

    5) What tends to weigh on your decisions? (Do you think about people, pro-cons, how you feel about it, etc.)
    When it comes to decisions that would affect me directly, I would consider my own feelings and the pros and cons.

    For decisions affecting others which I have to make, I would ask them their feelings on it.

    6) When working on a project what is normally your emphasis? Do you like to have control of the outcome?
    To make sure I submit something with substance. At times, I tend to cut things close, but it's usually before the deadline that I have "inspiration" and be able to write something good.

    When it comes to group projects, I like to do my part well and I expect others to do the same. I remember there was once my friend and I were working on a project with other people. She ended up doing someone else's part, because they weren't throwing in their weight. I supported her by helping her out, because I didn't think it was fair on her. Of course, we didn't talk to the person for weeks.

    Yes, I'd like to have as much control as possible, but there are some things you can't control.

    7) Describe us a time where you had a lot of fun. How is your memory of it?
    Oh, many times. Usually when I'm hanging out with my friends. We usually talk, eat, hang out and things like that.

    8) When you want to learn something new, what feels more natural for you? (Are you more prone to be hands on, to theorize, to memorize, etc)
    When it comes to school work, I tend to memorize, because it's easiest that way. But I also like doing hands on work.

    9) How organized do you to think of yourself as?
    I'm not organised at all. But then, every once in a while, I'd get my act together and clean.

    10) How do you judge new ideas? You try to understand the principles behind it to see if they make sense or do you look for information that supports it?
    I look for information that supports it. When it comes to theories, I keep an open mind, because I know it's not really proven yet.

    11) You find harmony by making sure everyone is doing fine and belonging to a given group or by making sure that you follow what you believe and being yourself?
    This is a hard question for me, because I tend to do both. I want others to be happy, but I also want myself to be happy too.

    12) Are you the kind that thinks before speaking or do you speak before thinking? Do you prefer one-on-one communication or group discussions?
    Think before I speak, except with friends. I prefer one on one and small group discussions.

    13) Do you jump into action right away or do you like to know where are you jumping before leaping? Does action speaks more than words?
    I look before I leap. Then I put one foot forward. Then I look again, and think if it's a wise decision to leap. Why should I even leap? I end up standing there for days and nights.

    Yes, actions do speak louder than words.

    14) It's Saturday. You're at home, and your favorite show is about to start. Your friends call you for a night out. What will you do?
    Meh. It depends. If I'm feeling charitable, I would go with them. But most of the time, I'd make up some excuse and watch my damn show.

    15) How do you act when you're stressed out?
    I tend to be very short-tempered.

    16) What makes you dislike the personalities of some people?
    I hate prejudiced people, bigots, and backstabbers.

    17) Is there anything you really like talking about with other people?
    With my friends, I'm very opinionated. I talk on every subject under the sun, like politics, current events, psychology...stuff which my friends say are "intellectual". I don't feel intellectual, but I do like talking about them. It's really because of my friends who got me interested in such subjects. They've even got me interested in philosophy.

    18) What kind of things do pay the least attention to in your life
    If you were to ask my mother, it's my grooming. Heh. I'm a messy person.

    19) How do your friends perceive you? What is wrong about their perception? ? What would your friends never say about your personality ?
    They all think I'm a Thinker, which I'm not. I'm definitely 75% Feeler, if not more. None of my friends have said I'm not loyal. None of them also said I'm loud.

    20) You got a whole day to do whatever you like. What kind of activities do you feel like doing?
    Hanging out with my friends, going on PerC, reading up on stuff.


    Thanks in advance. =D And have another cookie to go! (You know you want it! :kitty:)

    Look at the 8 cognitive function descriptions. Fi verses Fe, Ni verses Ne, Si verses Se, Ti verses Te, choose one each of those 4 you are stronger in:

    Fi or Fe?______
    Ni or Ne?______
    Si or Se?______
    Ti or Te?______

    then put the 4 you choose in order from strongest to weakest.

    1. Strongest_____
    2. 2nd__________
    3. 3rd__________
    4. Weakest______

    For example INFP is Fi Ne Si Te
    ISFP is Fi Se Ni Te
    ISFJ is Si Fe Ti Ne

    ( i think it's a toss between INFP and ISFP but i lean more to ISFP, i dont' think you are ISFJ)
    _____________________________________________________________________________________________________________

    Fi - INTROVERTED FEELING
    Valuing and considering importance, beliefs, and worth.
    It is often hard to assign words to the values used to make introverted Feeling judgments since they are often associated with images, feeling tones, and gut reactions more than words. As a cognitive process, it often serves as a filter for information that matches what is valued, wanted, or worth believing in. There can be a continual weighing of the situational worth or importance of everything and a patient balancing of the core issues of peace and conflict in life’s situations. We engage in the process of introverted Feeling when a value is compromised and we think, “Sometimes, some things just have to be said.” On the other hand, most of the time this process works “in private” and is expressed through actions. It helps us know when people are being fake or insincere or if they are basically good. It is like having an internal sense of the “essence” of a person or a project and reading fine distinctions among feeling tones.

    Fe - EXTRAVERTED FEELING
    Connecting and considering others and the group.
    The process of extraverted Feeling often involves a desire to connect with (or disconnect from) others and is often evidenced by expressions of warmth (or displeasure) and self-disclosure. The “social graces,” such as being polite, being nice, being friendly, being considerate, and being appropriate, often revolve around the process of extraverted Feeling. Keeping in touch, laughing at jokes when others laugh, and trying to get people to act kindly to each other also involve extraverted Feeling. Using this process, we respond according to expressed or even unexpressed wants and needs of others. We may ask people what they want or need or self-disclose to prompt them to talk more about themselves. This often sparks conversation and lets us know more about them so we can better adjust our behavior to them. Often with this process, we feel pulled to be responsible and take care of others’ feelings, sometimes to the point of not separating our feelings from theirs. We may recognize and adhere to shared values, feelings, and social norms to get along.

    __________________________________________________ __________________________________________________ ____________

    Ni - INTROVERTED INTUITING
    Foreseeing implications, transformations, and likely effects.
    Introverted iNtuiting involves synthesizing the seemingly paradoxical or contradictory, which takes understanding to a new level. Using this process, we can have moments when completely new, unimagined realizations come to us. A disengagement from interactions in the room occurs, followed by a sudden “Aha!” or “That’s it!” The sense of the future and the realizations that come from introverted iNtuiting have a sureness and an imperative quality that seem to demand action and help us stay focused on fulfilling our vision or dream of how things will be in the future. Using this process, we might rely on a focal device or symbolic action to predict, enlighten, or transform. We could find ourselves laying out how the future will unfold based on unseen trends and telling signs. This process can involve working out complex concepts or systems of thinking or conceiving of symbolic or novel ways to understand things that are universal. It can lead to creating transcendent experiences or solutions.

    Ne – EXTRAVERTED INTUITING
    Interpreting situations and relationships and pickup meanings and interconnections to other contexts.
    Extraverted iNtuiting involves noticing hidden meanings and interpreting them, often entertaining a wealth of possible interpretations from just one idea or interpreting what someone’s behavior really means. It also involves seeing things “as if,” with various possible representations of reality. Using this process, we can juggle many different ideas, thoughts, beliefs, and meanings in our mind at once with the possibility that they are all true. This is like weaving themes and threads together. We don’t know the weave until a thought thread appears or is drawn out in the interaction of thoughts, often brought in from other contexts. Thus a strategy or concept often emerges from the here-and-now interactions, not appearing as a whole beforehand. Using this process we can really appreciate brainstorming and trust what emerges, enjoying imaginative play with scenarios and combining possibilities, using a kind of cross-contextual thinking. Extraverted iNtuiting also can involve catalyzing people and extemporaneously shaping situations, spreading an atmosphere of change through emergent leadership.

    __________________________________________________ __________________________________________________ ___________

    Si - INTROVERTED SENSING
    Reviewing and recalling past experiences and seeking detailed data.
    Introverted Sensing often involves storing data and information, then comparing and contrasting the current situation with similar ones. The immediate experience or words are instantly linked with the prior experiences, and we register a similarity or a difference—for example, noticing that some food doesn’t taste the same or is saltier than it usually is. Introverted Sensing is also operating when we see someone who reminds us of someone else. Sometimes a feeling associated with the recalled image comes into our awareness along with the information itself. Then the image can be so strong, our body responds as if reliving the experience. The process also involves reviewing the past to draw on the lessons of history, hindsight, and experience. With introverted Sensing, there is often great attention to detail and getting a clear picture of goals and objectives and what is to happen. There can be a oneness with ageless customs that help sustain civilization and culture and protect what is known and long-lasting, even while what is reliable changes.

    Se - EXTROVERTED SENSING
    Experiencing and acting in the immediate context.
    Extraverted Sensing occurs when we become aware of what is in the physical world in rich detail. We may be drawn to act on what we experience to get an immediate result. We notice relevant facts and occurrences in a sea of data and experiences, learning all the facts we can about the immediate context or area of focus and what goes on in that context. An active seeking of more and more input to get the whole picture may occur until all sources of input have been exhausted or something else captures our attention. Extraverted Sensing is operating when we freely follow exciting physical impulses or instincts as they come up and enjoy the thrill of action in the present moment. A oneness with the physical world and a total absorption may exist as we move, touch, and sense what is around us. The process involves instantly reading cues to see how far we can go in a situation and still get the impact we want or respond to the situation with presence.

    __________________________________________________ __________________________________________________ ____________

    Ti - INTROVERTED THINKING
    Analyzing, categorizing, and evaluating according to principles.
    Introverted Thinking often involves finding just the right word to clearly express an idea concisely, crisply, and to the point. Using introverted Thinking is like having an internal sense of the essential qualities of something, noticing the fine distinctions that make it what it is and then naming it. It also involves an internal reasoning process of deriving subcategories of classes and sub-principles of general principles. These can then be used in problem solving, analysis, and refining of a product or an idea. This process is evidenced in behaviors like taking things or ideas apart to figure out how they work. The analysis involves looking at different sides of an issue and seeing where there is inconsistency. In so doing, we search for a “leverage point” that will fix problems with the least amount of effort or damage to the system. We engage in this process when we notice logical inconsistencies between statements and frameworks, using a model to evaluate the likely accuracy of what’s observed.

    Te - EXTROVERTED THINKING
    Segmenting, organizing for efficiency, and systematizing.
    Contingency planning, scheduling, and quantifying utilize the process of extraverted Thinking. Extraverted Thinking helps us organize our environment and ideas through charts, tables, graphs, flow charts, outlines, and so on. At its most sophisticated, this process is about organizing and monitoring people and things to work efficiently and productively. Empirical thinking is at the core of extraverted Thinking when we challenge someone’s ideas based on the logic of the facts in front of us or lay out reasonable explanations for decisions or conclusions made, often trying to establish order in someone else’s thought process. In written or verbal communication, extraverted Thinking helps us easily follow someone else’s logic, sequence, or organization. It also helps us notice when something is missing, like when someone says he or she is going to talk about four topics and talks about only three. In general, it allows us to compartmentalize many aspects of our lives so we can do what is necessary to accomplish our objectives.

    were you able to pinpoint your type that way? it's a new way i'm trying, let me know if it actually worked if you were able to come up with a score, and if so what did you score? :)

    ISFJ - The Nurturers

    Fe or Fi? Fi.
    Te or Ti? Ti.
    Se or Si? Si
    Ni or Ne? Ne.

    This is where it gets tough. I'm not really sure how to arrange the four letters.

    @MCRTS the only way I can help people to type themselves is through guided introspection, constantly asking why until we get to the real thinking below the words. As you may have gathered from my thread words aren't a great way to communicate and from your birth flag English may not even be your first langauge (although I've had no reason to doubt your ability )

    I will say that you seem very decisive in your answers (compare mine with 'if's and 'but's all over the place) and they are mostly short and to the point. I'd guess that either you thought about them endlessly before writing anything or in the moment decided to do the questionairre and just did it - are either of these accurate? If neither what was your process?

    I can't say that I remember anything about you from my time 'as' an ISFJ except that I enjoyed more of what you wrote and I read than I didn't enjoy. For what it's worth I am generally find Fi doms intriguing...

    I'm heading out now but I'll have a read around later if I'm not back too late to get a more general picture than what you've presented for analysis (I know I twist myself - you might too )

    By category, each of these 3 types fall into 3 different categories for their most dominant focus of what is most important to them (doesn't mean the other things aren't important but it is the most dominant focus over all):

    INFP - Meaning Seekers - Deep meaning in the soul towards life is the most dominant focus
    ISFP - Excitement Seekers - Excitement to excite and stimulate the 5 senses is the most dominant focus
    ISFJ - Security Seekers - Security and stability of home, job, family is the most dominant focus

    SOME TITLES OF THE 16 PERSONALITY TYPES:

    1) SJ – SENSING JUDGERS – OVERSEERS
    ISTJ – ADMINISTRATORS, DUTY FULLFILLERS, PLANNERS, INSPECTORS
    ISFJ - CAREGIVERS, CARETAKERS, NURTURERS, PROTECTORS, SUPPORTERS
    ESTJ – TRADITIONALISTS, GUARDIANS, IMPLEMENTORS, SUPERVISORS

    You say this is what you score:
    Fe or Fi? Fi.
    Te or Ti? Ti.
    Se or Si? Si
    Ni or Ne? Ne.

    INFP Fi Ne Si Te (you say Ti not Te)
    ISFP Fi Se Ni Te (you say Si Ne Ti, not Se Ni Te)

    What type of work would you like to do for God?

    and also, 3) Think about a time where you felt like you were at your finest. Tell us what made you feel that way.
    I guess when I was sixteen-seventeen. I was brimming with hope for the future.

    What things changed your mind about brimming with hope for the future?

    Also, do you think in more practical concrete facts / 5 senses terms?

    or do you think in more abstract out of the box, gut instinct, intuitive, 6th sense terms?

    Thanks, Dreamer777 for all your help on this!

    Also, thanks in advance to asmit127!

    Ah...okay.

    What type of work would you like to do for God?
    I'm going to sound cliche, but whatever He "calls" me to do. But I think it would most likely be writing or research for church stuff.

    What things changed your mind about brimming with hope for the future?
    I was starting a new course then, in the local college. I was the classic bright-eyed and bushy tailed freshie. Now I've completed my course, but you could say I'm at a crossroads in my life.

    I'm really not too sure about this. I can be very abstract and metaphorical, but I also can be very literal. But I can pick up on hidden meanings and sarcasm, if that's any help.

    Yes, English is my first language. Written English, anyway. Spoken, on the other hand...well, let's just say we have our own localised version of English.

    I'd guess that either you thought about them endlessly before writing anything or in the moment decided to do the questionairre and just did it - are either of these accurate? If neither what was your process?
    It was more of a spur of the moment thing.
