I think I have finally found my personality in ISFP. I am fairly new to the whole personality type terminology, so hopefully I won't embarrass myself too much. haha. I started delving into it when I was trying to figure out why my son was so.... well, like my son. It has been very theraputic to learn more about why he is the way he is and a little bit more about who I am. I thought for a long time that I was INFP, but it never seemed quite right. I even delved a bit in the world of INTP and kind of liked the company, but realized it really wasn't me either. I avoided the title of "Artist" because I thought it was too obvious and I never really thought I deserved the title of artist. Also I have a bit of intellectual pride and really wanted to think of myself as intuitive. But, I think there is a reason why I have to work hard to understand written word and somedays have trouble forming sentences that make sense when I talk.
I was lucky enough to have grown up in a very introverted family. Both my parents, grandmothers, aunts, and uncles were mostly introverted. I had a very healthy self-esteem until I married into an incredibly extroverted family. Eeek! Well, I am getting better and it helps to learn more about how they work too. I am slowly learning to take less offense to their ways and be more accepting in general.
I used to be big into art from very young through high school. Then on a whim, I decided to pursue music in college (piano). I am now currently a starving musician and a piano teacher. haha. I am also a military wife and a mom.
Thanks for reading,
