    ISFP: Sensitive Doer

    Sensitive Doer

    Sensitive Doers are gentle, modest and reserved persons. They cope well with everyday life and like their privacy. With their quiet, optimistic nature, they are also good, sought-after listeners and other people feel well in their company. All in all, this type is the most likeable and friendliest of all personality types. Tolerance and heir regard for others distinguish their personality. They are very caring, generous and always willing to help. They are open to and interested in everything that is new or unknown to them. However, if their inner value system or their sense of justice is hurt, Sensitive Doers can suddenly and surprisingly become forceful and assertive.

    Sensitive Doers enjoy the comforts life offers to the full. They are very happy in everyday life. Sensitive Doers are often gifted artists or very good craftsmen. Creativity, imagination and an especially keen perception are just a few of their strong points. Sensitive Doers are very presence-oriented; long-term planning and preparations do not appeal to them. They take life as it comes and react flexibly to daily demands. They do not like too much routine and predictability. Their talents come more to the fore when work processes are variable and there are not so many rules. Sensitive Doers like to work alone; if they are part of a team, they do not get involved in competitive or power games and prefer living and working together harmoniously and openly.

    Sensitive Doers are completely satisfied with a small, close circle of friends as their need for social contacts is not very marked. Here, too, they avoid conflicts - quarrels and disputes put considerable strain on them. Sensitive Doers are often very fond of animals and are very good with small children. As partner, this type is loyal and reliable and is willing to invest a lot in a relationship. Mutual respect and tolerance are very important to Sensitive Doers. Their love of pleasure makes them a pleasant companion with whom one can experience intensive moments. They like to look after their partner with attentiveness and small gifts and are very sensitive to the partnerís needs - often more than to their own. However, should they meet the wrong person, they run the risk of being taken advantage of. They are then deeply disappointed.

    Adjectives which describe your type: introverted, practical, emotional, spontaneous, sensitive, peace-loving, reserved, gentle, good-natured, independent, empathetic, friendly, playful, carefree, sympathetic, relaxed, quiet, modest, pleasure-loving, loyal, obliging, caring, helpful, optimistic

    Sensitive Doer: Career

    Your type, although belonging to the introverted doers, is also the most amiable and friendly in his dealings with others of all types. This special combination is the reason for your great flexibility. It enables you to work excellently and contently on your own to suit any situation, but also achieve extraordinary popularity and professional satisfaction as a member of a team. Here the precondition is a friendly, collegiate environment characterized by harmony and mutual respect.

    You need a working environment without intrigue or political manipulation, and with the least possible deployment of elbows. Cooperation rather than confrontation, should be the order of the day. Colleagues as well as superiors equally appreciate your unassuming, congenial nature and your unbelievable sensitivity plus your attentive and generous ways toward others. In your presence, people simply have to be comfortable; you are not competition oriented, whatsoever.

    You are almost limitlessly tolerant and always prepared to accept others as they are. As a consequence, you very rarely have problems getting along with different people. The only exception: when your private value system is hurt or you notice injustice somewhere. In that case, you can react quite forcefully but even in the most heated dispute you always try to argue respectfully and fairly.

    Sensitive Doer: Love

    Due to your quiet nature, you donít fall in love head over heels - but once you do, it happens intensively and fiercely. You have a pronounced romantic disposition and once you truly catch the bug, you insist on putting your beloved in the center of your universe. Like the Idealists, you are an all or nothing type, in this respect. Despite your love of freedom, you are the most faithful and devoted of all the Doers.

    You are capable of deep feelings, and you throw yourself into a relationship with all youíve got. You care for, spoil, and support your partner wherever you can - sometimes even at the cost of your own needs. You are devoted to doing everything for your beloved to the point that you may not realize for a long time that you are getting the short end of the stick. If you feel that you can do him/her a favor, you gladly deep-six everything that is important to you: friends, place of residence, or job. As long as you choose a partner who appreciates this trait, and most importantly, who does not take advantage of it, it is just great. It gets extremely dangerous, however, if you end up with an egoist. In dealing with your contemporaries, you are sometimes a little too trusting because you always assume the same high morals and character trends that are yours. In certain ways, that makes you very vulnerable and that applies to love, as well.

    Your pronounced sensitivity (also a part of your personality type description) makes you a very attentive, empathetic, and loving partner. You wonĎt miss a mood change in your heart of hearts, and have a damned sensitive ear for hidden appeals. You like it that way because excessive love pledges are not your style, and you donít continuously carry your heart on your sleeve. You prefer to demonstrate how much your partner means to you with deeds, and by reading his/her wish in his/her eyes.

    I like this. It's upbeat and positive, for a nice change.

    I also like the phrase "damned sensitive ear".

    After a few days of reflecting, I've come to realize that I'm much more sensitive than I thought I was. It's a good and bad thing, I wish other people can understand me better.

    Don't worry brainheart, a lot of us go through this. I'm just recently (within these past couple of days) seeing that ISFP is my best fit of them all. I originally thought ISTP, but when I read the profiles (both negatives and positives) of each type, I'm like "Yeah, this seems like me" with most of them...but when I read the ISFP profiles they naturally 'clicked'


    Anyways, I like this. I can pretty much relate to it all. The one thing that's a bit untrue: "Sensitive Doers like to work alone" ... I actually prefer working with groups most of the time, but alone can be good at times too.

    This is why it might be good to date another ISFP, but then again you might both forget the rest of the world exists.

    Same here!! I was just told to look at where my intuition evolves (e.g. in the intro or the extrovert world) and where my sensing evolve. Rather than to look at whether I'm N or S. And I have to say that my intuition resides more inside of my beliefs, identity and value system than in perceiving the outer world. So I think I'm ISFP rather than INFP. I also read that most MBTI tests where N-biaised...
    But @Marino, this description is just spot on for me!! Thanks! It makes me feel understood!

    If this sounds close to heaven, then you are ISFP. jk ;) No, it just sounds like reality, minus quite just how perfect I am in this.

    "damned sensitive ear for hidden appeals", LOL. So true. But funny.

    Yeah, we sound like angels in this. Lol

    Where is our fire? Our SP competitiveness? Our jealousy. Our self-righteous fury. Our Ni grips. Our Te grips. Our individualism. Our temper? Our need to never be bored. Someone link me to a description that talks about the not so peaceful side of isfps, cuz I need some balance. Haha. (Btw, people suggested Toothless, the dragon in How to Train Your Dragon was an ISFP and I loved that comparison. It shows we are fiery.)

    But what they say about relationships and career inevitably is true. I know I will get the short end of the stick if I don't find the right guy. Shouting, power struggles, and fighting in the workplace really make me feel sick.

    I am open to accepting most people until they say something or do something that hurts me or if they have an intimidating persona (that makes me think they will hurt me)...then I put them on my watch list. And give them a couple more chances till I have had it or the person proves quite trustworthy.

    I am actually not tolerant when you violate my values or belittle me. Which is really just a human thing right? But sometimes, my Fi has opinions on so many things that I am not aware of...so then it becomes unclear whether a value has truly been violated and also unclear of what is that value exactly? All I know is I feel bad/mad/offended...and I dont know exactly why, but that other person triggered something and violated some value of mine (that I will now spend the next few hours trying to figure out or just stomping around the house in anger). Oh, Fi I wish you had a voice that would just speak to me clearly of what it is that upsets you...but alas I have to introspect more or write to make sense of what is going on with it. This frustration over understanding our feelings/values and trying to figure how it can be incorporated to keep us functioning well IRL can also be mentioned in isfp profiles.
