you know, i think a lot of other types think we are those girls (in particular) that are materialistic and air-headed that only concern themselves with celebrity gossip and frivolous societal fads. Also like said many times before that we are overly emotional and doormats. I dont think that any of these are true for all of us all of the time.
Ive tried to please a little too much in my past, i wont deny that, i also wont deny that i have the ocassional emotional outburst. But like any stereotype the rest is just hype.
1. Doormats — I don't know... I mean, I think most people learn to not be this way overtime? I've definitely been this way in the past but not so much anymore.
2. Traditionalists — for ISFJ's I think this is such a stereotype because we're known to be attached to what we're used to. I think keeping things the same as they were originally is important because it serves as a kind of homage to those who made things the way they were before. I have no problem with accepting the new, however.
3. Perfectionists — this is very true on my part, yeah.
4. Clingy — if we don't receive affirmation from our loved ones, it's likely to drive us crazy. So in order to get that, yes, we can be clingy. But if the relationship is in balance this isn't necessarily the case.
5. Boring — I can be one of the craziest people I know, so no, not true.
6. Cannot innovate — this isn't my strong point but it doesn't mean I can't do it.
7. Cannot improvise — I can, although it comes easier to those who are quick-witted and can come up with things on the spot. I usually need time to think over what I'll do or say.
8. Lets others push their boundaries — sometimes.
9. Plays favorites — you mean we're people pleasers? Yes, that's usually the case. But that's because we seek acceptance. This isn't always the case though, by any means.
10. Hates change — I like change. :)

Mendi i agree.
i see people with these qualities and i think they are mostly isfj, but i could be wrong
Bad thing is, I'll see a personality type [it may follow that]=====>list of attributes.
no 1 mistake is when i see a list of attributes [it follows that]=====> personality type.
I think my mom is an isfj, and i think she is amazing. A lot of these stereotypes do not apply to her, though maybe one or two do.
She says that she is some of those things in the list but i don't really agree on that.
There was one trait that said unremarkable and I think that's BS. Thing is with ISJs they have a really super ability to concentrate on tasks and i think thats importatant to achieve goals and become remarkable.
In the interest of fairness I think it's only prudent to provide my own list that shows what I see are classic ISFJ traits. They are listed in no order.
6. Teddy bears (and by extension soft)
7. Kind hearted
You people are fantastic. Seriously.
