ISFJs have a rich inner world that is not obvious to observers. They constantly take in information about people and situations and store it away. This tremendous store of information is usually startlingly accurate because the ISFJ personality type has an exceptional memory about things that are important to their value systems.
Strive to attain
ISFJs have a very clear idea of the way things should be, which they strive to attain. They value security and kindness and respect traditions and laws. They tend to believe that existing systems are there because they work, and they’re not likely to buy into doing things in a new way.
Traditional methods of higher education, which require a lot of theorizing and abstraction, are likely to be a chore for the ISFJ. The ISFJ learns a task best by being shown its practical application. Once the task is learned, and its practical importance is understood, the ISFJ will faithfully and tirelessly carry through the task to completion.
ISFJs are extremely aware of their own internal feelings, as well as other people’s feelings. They do not usually express their own feelings unless they learn to express themselves and find outlets for their powerful emotions.
The ISFJ personality type is warm, generous, and dependable. They have many special gifts to offer, in their sensitivity to others, and their strong ability to keep things running smoothly. They need to remember to not be overly critical of themselves, and to give themselves some of the warmth and love which they freely dispense to others.
