ISFP strengths and weaknesses

ISFP Strengths

  • Sensitive and observant. ISFP personalities find it easy to relate to other people and recognize their emotional states. They seek harmony and strongly dislike conflicts.
  • Charming and open-minded. ISFPs are relaxed, warm individuals who rarely have difficulties making friends or fitting in. They also tend to be very tolerant and flexible.
  • Artistic. People with this personality type tend to have a very good sense of aesthetics and beauty. This is also their primary way of expressing themselves. ISFPs’ artistic skills are truly enviable.
  • Imaginative. ISFPs possess a creative mind and are often seen as trendsetters, coming up with bold and unusual ideas all the time. Their vivid imagination and artistic skills form a powerful combination, often helping the ISFP in an unexpected way.
  • Curious. ISFPs tend to be very inquisitive and willing to try out new things. They would rather take risks than miss an exciting opportunity.
  • Passionate and enthusiastic. ISFP personalities may often be quiet and reserved, but they can also become incredibly passionate if they are working on something that excites and interests them. People with the ISFP personality type tend to have very intense feelings, but their passion and enthusiasm are usually hidden from the outside world.

ISFP Weaknesses

  • May have low self-esteem. ISFPs often have problems with self-confidence, especially earlier on in life. Most of their positive traits revolve around sensitivity and artistic expression, and such things are often seen by many as secondary to, for instance, academic performance.
  • Difficulties in the academic environment. People with the ISFP personality type usually find scientific subjects and research quite difficult and may fall behind their peers in highly technical fields.
  • Get stressed easily. ISFPs are intensely emotional individuals; consequently, they may have difficulties coping with conflicts or stress. This can also lower their self-esteem and stifle their creativity.
  • Very competitive. Despite being quite reserved or even shy, ISFP personalities can become very competitive in certain situations. This trait is very common among Explorer (SP) types.
  • Unpredictable. ISFPs dislike long-term commitments and plans, often living completely in the present and consciously trying to avoid thinking about the future. This can lead to a lot of tension and misunderstanding in their romantic relationships.
  • Fiercely independent. ISFPs value their freedom very highly and do not really worry about traditions, rules, or guidelines, believing that they only hinder artistic expression and free thinking. Not surprisingly, ISFP personalities are likely to clash with more traditional types, especially in the workplace.

Nice analysis but I was having no serious problem with my academic scores. Plus, I prefer long term relationship than short term one :)
