ISFPs are observant, considerate, and kind. They
appreciate being in the moment, and are often able to see beauty where others may not. ISFPs are particularly attuned to their environment and the emotions of those around them, and are motivated to bring harmony to both. ISFPs enjoy helping people achieve their goals, as they find meaning in being of service to others. ISFPs are excellent listeners, and are sensitive to the needs of others. They value common sense and facts, often searching for a practical and immediate solution to a problem. ISFPs typically prefer to support others quietly and in the background, and may not have any desire to control or lead people and projects. As a result, an ISFP may find their accomplishments overlooked or underestimated by others. ISFP are selective about whom they trust. They may appear reserved or quiet, but often have a gentle warmth and enthusiasm. ISFPs greatly value their relationships, usually showing appreciation through deeds rather than with words. Typically tolerant and relaxed, ISFPs accept others readily, and often encourage others to find common ground and work together by setting an example. ISFPs prefer autonomy and spontaneity, and may have difficulty performing routine tasks. If they are able to align their personal values to the task at hand, however, they are often motivated and dedicated. ISFPs are sometimes so focused on looking after the needs of others, that they may forget to take care of themselves. An ISFP will often benefit from some time alone, or with just a few close friends, so they can recharge and renew.
