ISFPs are quiet, friendly, sensitive, and kind. They enjoy the present moment and what's going on around them. They like to have their own space and to work within their own time frame. ISFPs are loyal and committed to their values and to people who are important to them. They dislike disagreements and conflicts and do not force their opinions or values on others.

They usually choose careers where they are given a great deal of autonomy so their natural artistic abilities can operate at their best and allow them to be consistent with their strong core of inner values. ISFPs are natural artists, counselors, and teachers. They rarely enjoy the fast-paced corporate world.
