Chase: Hey guys, its CS Joseph with CSJoseph.Life, doing another lecture on comparing types as per some of our subscriber requests. Keep those requests coming, guys. I will be doing more videos based on requests, but I want to knock out a few of them before we do a deep dive in our next main series. So here we go. Got the whiteboard tonight. And the two types we’ll be doing tonight, the ISFP versus the INFP. The most moral of all the types are these two types. So, a lot of people get confused between ISFPs and INFPs on a regular basis. This is actually probably my most requested comparison video currently, between the requests I have been getting on Twitter, Discord, and on Youtube. This is the most wanted or most desired comparison video. So that’s perfectly fine by me. Let’s do it. Uh, what makes it so difficult to identify these guys?
Chase: Well, they’re behind the scenes. Uh, that means they’re informative responding control. They’re informative, uh, because, uh, I mean the alternative is to be direct, and they don’t really like being direct because by being direct they’re at risk of causing someone to think poorly of them because,”Oh, I could be seen as mean, or I could be seen as abusive or, or conflict,” right? The reason is because they’re both insecure with their Te inferior, they’re insecure of making people think bad of them. They don’t want people to think bad about them. They want people to think highly of them. They, that’s what their desire is. That that is their hope. They want to have the experience of people thinking highly of them because that allows them to be, to increase their brand or their status symbol because ISFPs and INFPs are both very about status because they draw their self worth with their Fi hero based on the status that other people have.
Chase: Of course, some of them disagree with me, but the truth of the matter is, is that when people are thinking highly of the ISFP and the INFP, then they feel good about themselves and that’s how they are able to engage with life. And it also makes them… cause them to make decisions, but also that could cause people to manipulate them in that way. You know, someone comes along and they go, “I think really highly of you and all these things,” and then all of a sudden they start feeling good about themselves when it’s not even remotely true at all, and that person is just lying to them to get something out of them. Although even though the ISFP is pretty weak to that, the INFP not so much because extraverted intuition parent is like, “Yeah, whatever, someone’s already done this to me before, good luck.”
Chase: You know what I mean? And the INFP will be able to protect themselves from that. But the ISFP not so much , they need someone else to protect them from that in that situation. So being informative means you talk in terms of subtext and context. Everything is contextual. Everything being said by both of these types, always has additional hidden meaning behind it. It’s not really just directly what it is, it’s because from an ego standpoint, they are trying their best to be informative and they like to be informed and they like to inform others. Uh, and uh, even though they like to create the plan, uh, they prefer someone else to implement it for them. That’s why they typically are ending up with FJs of some kind. Um, ISFJs, ESFJs for the ISFP, or INFJs or ENFJs for the INFP, uh, which, ENFJs don’t really like making the plan, but they like being handed a plan and then they’ll just do it.
Chase: Right. Same with INFJs, et cetera. And then that’s the plan, you know, and uh, it’s kind of interesting how hypocritical NFJs can be when it comes to planning because… its same with SFJs; because both types don’t want to create the plan, but they need a plan handed to them so they can execute it for their day because they’re J types. Right? Although some J types like being the source of planning and the execution of planning, like ESTJs for example, or ENTJs. So it is kind of interesting how the types are different in that way and they can kind of interface with each other in different ways. Uh, so that’s, that’s informative. They’re both responding because they’re both introverted when they’re around other people like when they’re, like, if they’re around together, because remember, introversion is one person or two people together because it takes two to tango, but extraversion is three’s a crowd.
Chase: So when you have three or more people, extraversion isn’t in place. And then when a person is responding interaction style, they start losing energy, mental energy and they become drained. And then as soon as that mental energy is completely gone, they have to withdraw and they withdraw and they are able to gain energy and solitude again. And after they have solitude time, they’re able to return back to the social situation and engage. Uh, this is oftentimes why are these two behind the scenes types are alone because they are at peace with themselves, very Zen focused, uh, within their own environments, within their own areas where they have solitude and they’re able to gain energy from that position. So control, these are control types. They’d go with their own pace. They take their time. They are grandpa drivers on the freeway. Yes, they are really slow.
Chase: Although IFPs these two types don’t think they’re slow, but they really are. And they really annoy everybody else around them because they take forever on the road and then they get mad at everyone else trying to go too fast. “Oh, he’s going too fast, he’s going to crash.” Except I don’t. And I do drive fast. I’m sorry, but maybe you folks should kind of like trust the people that are actually good drivers instead of just silently judging everybody on the road for being bad drivers because that’s not actually the case. And I get that you feel good about that judgment because, majority speaking, people are bad and then you’re okay judging everyone because the majority of people are that way. But there’s people like me who actually do drive fast and are actually really good and I’ve not gotten in an accident as a result of driving fast.
Chase: So. And I’ve been doing that for like a long time, so I don’t think there’s a problem with that. You know what I mean? So try not to be so silently judgey with your Fi hero and Te inferior all the time both you types, like artists and dreamers, because you’re not always correct about that. I mean, yeah, you feel it’s true, but that doesn’t make [it’s] true. Like seriously. It doesn’t mean it’s true. Just because you feel it’s true doesn’t mean it’s true, guys. Try to understand that you know, that’s just how the world works. “But the data says otherwise!” I don’t care if the data says otherwise. Correlation is not causation, Te inferior, and that’s something you two types should try to learn. But again, that’s why [you] guys are paired up with Ti child or Ti inferior because those four types definitely know that correlation is not causation and they care about the actual absolute truth, way more than like the general feeling.
Chase: “Well, I feel that this might be true,” or, “Or that’s your truth,” you know, that’s not how that… No, no, no, that’s not going to fly around those types. That’s why you’re paired up with those because those types keep you honest, or at least keep you moral. Whereas you’re able to kind of keep them honest because you can provide them with the reference points with your Te inferior and help them organize their thoughts properly, which allows a more structured procedural routine approach for both sides. [You] guys’ Te inferior do that and it’s fantastic when you do so, uh… informative responding control. That’s your interaction style. They’re behind the scenes. The fact that both these types of behind the scenes is what makes it difficult for people who are Fi hero to kind of figure out, “Okay, well which of these two am I?” because it’s the same interaction style.
Chase: It’s just a different temperament, right? One’s more idealistic and focused on people; one’s more artistic focused on the physical environment and [manipulate] the physical environment to its own will. That’s basically the stark difference between these two types. So we, uh, talk about, let’s talk about Fi hero. It’s all about morals. These two types are the most moral of all the types. They both have Fi hero and they make decisions based on what they believe is a good a bad thing. They don’t really care about the true/false. They care about good/bad, and good/bad from the point of view that people… uh, well, they draw their self worth from the fact that other people think highly of them or, or think less of them. And then that kind of makes their, you know, they can have a really big high day or a big low day because they’re concerned about their reputation or they’re concerned about their status amongst people that are close to them or people in general.
Chase: And it’s another reason why they’re informative and why they’re behind the scenes is because that social interaction puts them at risk of feeling bad about themselves because they so… they, they desire very much that people think highly of them. And that’s what Fi hero is all about. In order for them to behave absolutely moral, they need other people to think well of them with their Te inferior. So ISFP has Se parent. This gives them mastery over physics. That’s why they’re very good at mechanics. They could fix a car, they could basically fix anything similar to how ISTP is. The difference between an ISTP and ISFP though is that the ISFP actually has to feel good about it, has to be in the mood. Because these two types are very moody, and if they’re not in the mood they ain’t going to do anything.
Chase: And it’s really annoying. So you have to constantly try to care for them and make them feel good so they’re in the mood to do things and be productive because if they’re not in the mood, they’re not going to be productive. And instead, you know, it’s like, it’s like having it’s like having an INFP, you know, mother who you know has, has a child and uh, you know, isn’t working or anything. But then you know, when, when dad comes home from work, she just goes to bed because she is too tired of, you know, doing nothing all day long other than just taking care of a kid. Right? Well that is because she’s just not in the mood, right? She’s just not in the mood, you know, she’s not in the mood to make dinner or an INFP guy who, uh, is just not in the mood to get out of his mother’s basement or not in the mood to get a job, you know. Or same thing with ISFPs, you know, “I’m not in the mood to participate in this system,” you know, and it… their moods can really get in the way, and their moods can inhibit their progress as human beings.
Chase: Especially immature INFPs and immature ISFPs, mood is everything. And they walk around thinking that their mood is the most important thing, and other people are bad people, or stupid people if they’re not making room for their moods or how they feel. “But I’m a highly sensitive person!” Yeah, I’m sorry, but I don’t care. You’re a human being like everybody else. You know, I get that you’re sensitive. I’m sensitive too. Everyone is sensitive in some way, shape or form, but the difference is is that I don’t allow my mood to get in the way of being productive. I, you know, there are days where I can be insanely, insanely depressed, but I’m still being productive. “But it’s really sad.” Yeah, well, maybe you should be productive as a result of the sad. Use the sadness as motivation for you to actually try to bring about change in your life instead of using your mood as a crutch to not be motivated to do anything.
Chase: That’s one big problem I have with Fi heroes. I wish Fi heroes would figure that out. It’s not fair to the rest of the types to have this mood excuse, and Fi heroes and even in some cases Fi parents do it. Although Fi parents are kind of funny, they kind of accuse everyone else of being really poorly irresponsible with their mood. Anyway, what is the bottom line? The bottom line is that what I’m saying is that INFPs and ISFPs have this thing where their moods can get out of control and they make it… they can use it as a crutch. And then they can decide to be idle all of a sudden because their mood is not right, you know, I’m sorry, but the world does not revolve around Fi heroes; and young ones really kind of believe that it can, or should, or it would want to, and then come as they get older, they realize, “Oh crap, that doesn’t really happen.”
Chase: You know, and then they have a reality check. Uh, INFPs especially need that reality check because if, if they, if they’re raised, you know, without discipline and if they’re raised without, like, you know, ‘spare the rod, spoil the child.’ If not, if they’re never spanked by their parents, they’ll think that the world is made of sunshine and rainbows and they’ll continue on in that way through their adulthood, much to the detriment of people in their, in their lives. And you got to be really, really careful. So if you’re raising an INFP, make sure you discipline them because if you don’t, it will be a problem for them and your grandchildren down the road. So ISFPs, they don’t really have that problem so much because they could see what other people are doing and they know what they want to do, and they can kind of let their mood not really cause them to be idle so much and they can actually become super, super diligent.
Chase: The virtue and advice of the artist type is a diligence versus you know, sloth. They can be very slothful, yes, because they’re not in the mood or whatever, but the ISFP can be insanely diligent and absolutely accomplished, like, a crap ton, you know. And then once the INFP finally has developed self discipline with their Si child, they can also be insanely diligent, but still the ISFP kind of beats them in the diligence area. It’s because the ISFP wants to be productive because the ISFP starts to draw their self worth, their sense of self worth, the Fi hero, as a result of being productive. Right? So Se parent is about manipulating the physical environment, I mean an ISFP can look at a hillside, buy an excavator, and they could just see in their head without doing any planning or any paperwork or nothing, how that hillside it’s going to be, and then they can just take that excavator without any very much training on how to use it.
Chase: And then all of a sudden that hillside is exactly the way they want it to be. It’s unbelievable. ISFPs are amazing artists. They can do insane paintings or songs or bands and uh, uh, and both types are very good at writing because Te inferior, when it aspires, it can be so good at writing in some cases, especially the INFP. Writers like George R. R. Martin, INFP. Uh, who else? Robert Greene is an INFP. INFPs are brilliant writers and I highly recommend you read literature from these people. If you haven’t read George R. R. Martin, what are you thinking? If you haven’t read Robert Greene, with an ‘e’ at the end, what are you thinking? He wrote ‘The 48 Laws of Power.’ That stuff is dope. Uh, ‘The 50th Law’ with Fifty Cent and Robert Greene, dope. I, yes, I am a Robert Greene fanboy, and INFPs are amazing in that way. So just understand that ISFPs have extraverted sensing parent.
Chase: INFPs have extraverted intuition parents, so they’re just aware of what other people want. They can kind of, they’re, they’re aware of the ‘what if?’ extraverted sensing for ISFPs is the “what is?” Extraverted intuition for INFPs is the “what if?” and they’re constantly asking “what if?”, and they can kind of anticipate the behavior of fellow people, people around them. They can predict things, they could predict events. They can predict people, they can predict actions, they can predict, predict, predict. As long as the INFP has experienced it before their Si child, they can predict that action later in the future if they’re extroverted parent. All it takes is that they have to have experience, and the more experience that the INFP has, the more they’re able to prognosticate with their extravert intuition prescience, and see into the future and predict future events.
Chase: This is especially true with trending and day training. INFPs are amazing financiers, and they are amazing at day trading. I know an INFP who was at a university and he would trade on his phone while lecturing students and he made a lot of money doing day trading to the point where he didn’t have to be a professor anymore. But he just did it for the sake of teaching because he loved teaching because he has his ENFJ shadow, which is the mentor and just trying to mentor students and he wants to share his knowledge of his philosophy because INFPs are all about their philosophy, their idealistic dreams and their philosophy in the same way an ISFP is all about their art. I meant INFP is about philosophy by the way. It’s, they’re like so similar it’s so hard to keep them straight.
Chase: You know what I mean? I think that’s why people want me to make this video. Anyway. So, Se parent, extraverted intuition parent, ISFP, INFP respectively. Uh, so their child functions are different. The ISFPs Ni child, it’s all about what it wants. Ni child is like that little kid running across the minefield because it wants to get to the other side and then somehow it makes it across safely and no mine’s go explode. And then it comes back, grabs the cup of sugar from Grandma’s house and then goes across the minefield again and get back home and nothing ever happens. It’s like, “Wow, do you have like liquid luck or something?” But yeah, Ni child and ISFPs getting out of close calls. It’s like a normal thing for them. They can just get through anything. Si child, however, the INFP, well, they can outlast anything.
Chase: They can endure anything. INFPs have this insane Zen endurance and it’s like, “What the hell? How is it possible you could put up with so much suffering? Wow.” It’s like, it’s like they’re, they’re levitating over this lake and people were throwing rocks at them. And the rocks, even though they make contact, doesn’t even, doesn’t even, uh, dispel their concentration. It’s like nothing. They can weather any storm, any hurricane, any tempest you send towards the INFP. The INFP is like, “Meh, I don’t care.” You know, they, it’s like, it’s like honey badger, honey badger don’t care. I mean, that’s literally the INFP. They’re like the walking honey badgers… the walking honey badger meme, mascots, you know, because Si child could just literally put up with anything and they can handle it. Uh, the, you know, it’s like, “Oh, there’s that thing right there, here,” [chuckle]. They’re just going to shrug it off.
Chase: That’s how INFPs are, they could definitely take a beating, you know, and then after they’ve charged up all that beating again they can really let them have it, you know. It’s Kinda like a, it’s kinda like the Iron Fist almost. Even though the Iron Fist is technically an INFJ in the Marvel story, but uh, he takes more hits. The more he gets charged up, the more damage he can deal. That’s kind of an INFP, let’s be honest. So, uh, so Si child needs to be [comfort], needs to be comfortable at all times, its all about being comfy. It’s all about being safe. It’s all about having experiences and receiving experiences. INFPs, especially in the bedroom, love to receive sensation from their lovers, whereas ISFPs love to give sensation to their lovers with their Se parent, uh, because, Ni child wants to give so they, they want to give experiences, give sensation as Se wants to give sensation Ni Se. And then Si is… Ne sees that their [part], the INFP‘s partner wants to give them a sensation.
Chase: They want to receive a sensation because their partner is going, they see that the partner wants to give them a sensation and Si child is ready to receive that amazing sensation in the bedroom, and that’s kinda how they take it. Uh, so INFP is more geared from taking and receiving in the bedroom, whereas ISFPs are more geared to giving sensation in the bedroom. That’s one another huge difference between the two types, especially from their sexual response. Uh, and we, we kind of talked about extraverted thinking inferior which are the rationale. They’re very insecure about how other people think of them. That’s kind of why they’re very behind the scenes. They don’t really engage with people in that way because they don’t want people to think of them as bad people and because of that they can also end up silently judging everyone with their Fi hero.
Chase: “You’re not good, you’re a bad person, you’re this, you’re that.” But that’s also because of extraverted feeling nemesis, which we’ll get to a little bit, although. Hold on. Yeah. Okay. So just making sure I was doing that right. So extraverted, so Te rationale, they’re going to be both very organized. INFPs are really good with financial situations. ISFPs can be good at finances and they can take charge, uh, with their, uh, ENTJ subconscious. Especially when they get over their fear with their Te inferior that ENTJ comes out with the ISFP and they can take charge. They can, like, run a band, they can run a business, they can run a team of people, they could be a foreman for a general contractor, and lead a team of people on a job site. ISFPs are amazing about that.
Chase: They could even actually run a team and producing art. Uh, and, and, and direct people who are doing the art project instead of just doing the project themselves, which is [an], which is amazing. Uh, INFPs can do similar things except from a financial standpoint, or professoral standpoint, or, like, they’re, they’re really good headmasters at schools, principals, uh, those types of careers. INFPs are super good at that… really good with finances if they apply themselves. Good with day trading if they apply themselves and get trained up on it and get additional experience, because the more experience they have with introverted sensing child, the more they can predict trends within the market because INFPs can use their extraverted intuition parent to predict trends because it’s prescience and it’s very symbolic… symbol. Symbol. Symbology is everything to extravert intuition parent, and predicting trends, and patterns. Pattern recognition is everything there is with an INFP in the metaphysical realm.
Chase: ISFPs, it’s all about pattern recognition within the physical environment. That’s why they’re very mechanical, provided they’re in the mood to do mechanics in that particular area because ISFPs like to specialize in that regard. INFPs like to specialize as well, but with their philosophy, because INFPs are all about their core inner philosophy, you know, a philosophy of life. Whereas the ISFP is about their art. Everything’s about their art. Although ISFPs are philosophical, but it’s usually philosophical with their art and what they want to bring their symbols to life instead of maintain their symbols within. Right? So, Fe critic. Both types walk around believing everyone else is bad, or worried that other people are bad. And uh, because of that they kind of assume that people are just bad people until proven otherwise, which kind of sucks because when they’re trying to have relationships with other people, they kind of shy away from people because they’re like, “Well, I’m a very good person, but that person’s obviously a bad person,” and they’re silently judging everybody in that regard.
Chase: And it has nothing to do with what’s true or false. And especially ISFPs because they don’t exactly have experience with other people. And yet they’re judging people to be bad people straight off away. It’s only after they see that person and they’re observing that person with their Se parent, that Fe critic, or Fe nemesis backs off and they realize, “Oh, that person is actually a good person.” Fe nemesis from an INFP standpoint, the more experience that they receive from the person that they’re judging, the more they realize that they’re wrong and then they’ll go, “Okay, that person is actually a good person,” but it takes time. INFPs have to be proven that a person is… it has to be proven over time that a person, and given a good impression, that a person is not a bad person so that their Fe nemesis is cool. ISFPs.
Chase: They just have to observe it and then they’re fine. Now their critic functions. ISFPs are very critical towards their own memory. They’re also critical towards their own duty. They take duty very seriously and even though ISFPs are very willpower based, they will at times decide to be very dutiful. Especially to their partner, especially with their children and their family, and they can do things and create art or mechanical things around the house specifically from a duty standpoint. They’ll also claim that they have the best memory in the world. “I have the memory of an elephant,” says an ISFP once, but in reality that’s not technically true. Uh, ISFPs, new information hits their head and pushes out the old stuff, but Si critic holds onto the most important, most critical things and will have that story in their longterm memory.
Chase: Thank God. But they can still be insanely forgetful. So you have to constantly remind ISFPs. That’s why ISFPs go really good with SFJ types, ESFJs, ISFJs because those types remember everything and the ISFP can always ask them, you know, “Hey, what do you think?” with their Te inferior. And uh, “Do you remember this?” Or ask them if they remember something because they’re extraverted sensing is trying to look for memories stored in other human beings to see what that is, you know, what they remember. INFPs don’t have that problem because they have Si child. They just remember everything and they’ll bring things up from, like, 30 years ago and you’re like, “What the hell? How is that still relevant to right now?” “But you said this thing 30 years ago.” It’s like, “Yeah, that’s not now though. Have you realized that I’ve changed?
Chase: Oh, you have, awesome.” You know, that leads to the most interesting conversations. You know, if I’ve ever heard interesting conversations. So INFPs have introverted intuition critic, so you’re very critical towards their willpower, and because they’re very critical towards their willpower they don’t allow themselves to want things. Whereas the ISFP let’s themselves want things all the time with their Ni child, right? But INFP Ni critic just doesn’t really let themselves want things. They can get stuck in ruts in their life, especially if they get too comfy with their Si child. So to get an INFP motivated you make them as uncomfortable as possible, and then they’re motivated to make change and make things happen. If you’re in a relationship with an INFP and they’re stagnant, make them uncomfortable and they’ll hop to, they’ll hate you. And then eventually they’ll realize that they like being productive and they like doing what they’re doing, and then they’ll stop hating and then they’ll actually appreciate that you went so far as to make them uncomfortable.
Chase: Awesome. Uh, it just really also depends on how mature they are because the more mature they are, the less they’ll hate you and the, and the, and it would cost less time of them being upset at you for, you know, making them uncomfortable because they’re like, “I don’t deserve this,” when actually, you know, they kind of do because they’re not doing anything at the moment. Right? ISFPs don’t necessarily have that problem because their Ni child is constantly trying to want to do new things and produce new sensations. Uh, and uh, and it keeps them motivated as long as they feel good about what they’re doing. The same thing with the INFPs, as long as they feel good and as long as they’re comfortable, uh, you know, comfortable to the point where like their mood is not dominating them or they’re levered a level of comfort is not dominating them, but they like what they’re doing.
Chase: And they’re comfortable with their career or their lane in life, they can be productive in that way, but they are still at risk of reverting back to that stagnation, so to prevent that from happening just make sure that you are prepared to make that Si child uncomfortable, to keep them motivated, to keep growing in life. Otherwise they’re at risk of like stopping growing and that sucks for INFPs when they stop growing, because then their core inner philosophy is at risk of getting corrupted. And instead of actually being a visionary for social change in society, they end up creating a philosophy that negatively impacts social change and they can… become a negative idealist basically, that actually hurts people because they’re so selfishly focused on maintaining their level of comfort and maintaining their level of mood, what makes them feel good. Because INFPs, similar to ENFPs, can be focused on, “Yeah, I’m all for positive change,” but they don’t.
Chase: They are at risk of not caring if it benefits other people. They’re totally fine if it just benefits them, and that can also include financial situations. Not good. At least the ISFP doesn’t really have that problem because they are committed to giving people a good experience, right? So, but then again, it’s, it’s, it’s more art. It’s not really, it’s not really social change, you know, ISFPs don’t really necessarily believe that they can have mass, macro level social change; but more micro level social change and they’re filing to do that with their art because, as long as one person enjoys they’re doing it, makes it worth it to them. Whereas the INFP, multiple people have to enjoy their philosophy or enjoy what they’re doing so they can value themselves in that regard because they see that people want to buy into that philosophy, that corner philosophy that they’ve developed.
Chase: So ISFPs have extraverted intuition trickster. So this is a huge difference between them and INFPs. ISFPs are weak to sales. Um, you have to protect them on used car lots from… you have to protect them from ENFPs because those ENFPs will try to sell them on things that they don’t want to buy, and they can be taken advantage of because they’re just completely unaware of how people… They are completely unaware of what other people want. They are completely unaware that other people have intentions or agendas behind what they’re doing. INFPs don’t have that problem. They can see other people’s agendas easily and call them out and they’re protected from making those poor decisions. ISFPs not so much so ISFPs have to be protected in that regard, and you have to watch out for them, and, and safe guard them from poor intentions for other people.
Chase: INFPs, however, have extraverted sensing trickster, which makes them unaware of the physical environment. This is what causes them to drop things all the time or have horrible fashion sense. And they need Se inferiors and Se child types, uh, which are NJs, to teach the INFP proper fashion so that they can stop being really bad at fashion. Now INFP women have a better handle on fashion than men, but it’s still compared to, like all women in general, it can actually be pretty bad, so they still need Se inferior and Se child types, NJ types to teach them proper fashion so they don’t have that problem anymore. But again, once Si child has that introverted sensing experiential data inside of itself and realizes what’s worked in the past in terms of fashion then INFPs have their style and then that, and then that’s their style, and they’re cool with.
Chase: Their style, indefinitely. ISFPs, they’re like the guys who have tie dye shirts all the time, you know, colors, everything they wear is all about art because they’re trying to convey the feelings that they have inside themselves and give a good experience because what they wear is their art. They don’t necessarily have that extraverted sensing weakness in that, uh, INFPs do, but INFPs can compensate for it over time with more experience. And the bottom function logic, Ti demon for both. Uh, so that basically is, if you’re not, if you’re not sharing your thoughts with them, if you’re leaving things up with interpretation or if you’re overly criticizing them, they can become, you know, especially ISFP, the ISFP can like super go major ragey on that, and they’ll literally start to plot to harm you and harm your future. And ISFPs will, can be very plotty in this way and come up with these insane plans to harm you and destroy your future as well as destroy your relationships with other people.
Chase: INFPs, the way they do it, it’s more of, it becomes… it becomes a thing where they’re looking for the nearest tool to slug you with; or take a hammer to your skull, that kind of thing, because it’s like, “I went out of my way, uh, I made you smarter. I warned you, I gave you warnings. You’re not listening to my warnings. Okay, well why bother?” You know, uh, and it’s like, “Okay, well, if you’re not going to listen to me, uh, if you’re not even going to consider the data, then you know, why bother?” And then they could just, and then all of a sudden, because you are making bad decisions because you’re not listening to that INFP guidance, all of a sudden the INFP personally becomes harmed because the INFP is trying to warn you, “Hey, there’s this thing that’s going to harm us.
Chase: You better do something. Make a decision. I don’t have the power to make this decision. Make the decision please. We’re going to get hit by a car, we’re going to hit by a car.” And then all of a sudden you ignore their warnings. Then you get hit by a car and then they hate you. So then as you’re both lying there upside down in this car, bleeding out and whatnot, the INFP is like, “You know what, I’m just going to finish the job and drive this protruded bulkhead thing from the car and right into your neck. And no one would ever know.” You know, like, that’s how, that’s how ISTP demon can happen because if you ignore them, uh, when they’re trying to warn you about something and they’re trying to help guide your thinking and if you’re not interested in their guidance, they’re just not going to have anything to do with you.
Chase: And if your ignorance causes them harm, that’s even worse. Don’t be ignorant. Always listened to INFPs. ISFP is kind of similar. They’re also trying to make sure that you have a good now, they’re trying to give you the best now, but if you’re not going to do things, if you’re, if you’re not going to be practical and you’re not going to listen to their advice either, it’s like, “Okay, well why bother?” And then they’ll just start to plot to harm your future and not give you any advice at all and not seek to make you comfortable at all anymore. They’re just going to be focused on their comfort because it’s like, “Why bother going out of my way to make you comfortable all the time if you’re not even going to listen to me? So I’m just gonna make myself comfortable then, and screw your future.
Chase: I only care about mine, because why… why do I even care so much?” You know, because both types, you know, they, they, they are pretty caring. It comes from their ESFJ shadow for ISFPs, or their ENFJ shadow for INFPs, you know, ISFPs, ESFJ shadow. It is at risk of being a doormat, but it’s a supporter is trying to be supportive. In ISFPs, immaturely, because it’s a shadow, are trying to be supportive, you know, and INFPs immaturely, because it’s a shadow are trying to mentor people. That’s how they’re different. And they mentor people. The INFP is this grand professor that are all about increasing, uh, you know, the thinking and causing other people to be intelligent. And especially by conveying the core inner philosophy, ISFPs are doing the same thing. So I’m trying to convey it through their art.
Chase: Right? So I think that just about does it for the INFP and the ISFP. Got to love that INFP dream world that they live in with their extraverted tuition parent and their Fi hero. And got to love how the ISFP takes their inner dream world and shares it with everybody else, with their extraverted sensing parent with the art that they create, you know, it’s interesting kind of seeing like, you know, a philosopher versus an artist, you know. They, they kind of have a similar approach to things but it just comes out of them differently, and when it’s shared with the external world and it’s absolutely fantastic. I really like both these types. They have a lot of strengths and weaknesses like other types, but, I mean, that’s what you get. No one’s perfect and, and no one is complete either, which is a good thing because that allows us as human beings to have relationships with each other because when we combine our powers, you know, we’d become Captain Planet, right?
Chase: And then we can like literally do what we need to do to change society, life, quality of life. Yeah. Happiness, pursuit of happiness, everyone being happy because we completed the puzzle because everyone’s cognitive functions are coming together and then we’re able to accomplish anything. Yeah, that’d be nice. But that’s why we are the way we are. Human beings are built for relationship and that’s because our cognition is incomplete. But when we combine each other our cognition becomes complete and we’re able to literally accomplish anything. And INFPs and ISFPs are no, uh, the, uh, they’re definitely not left out from that process there. They are critical components in as much as any of the 16 types are critical components to be able to accomplish, uh, anything, anything that, you know, we collectively put our minds to at a macro level and even at a micro level; even, even at a family, or a community, or even as just two people, everyone’s able to propagate this with their cognition and kind of build and build and build or, you know, microcosms, macrocosms.
Chase: It all works out in the end. So with all that, uh, if you have any questions about the INFP or the ISFP, please leave it in the comments section and I will do my best to answer your questions. Also, make sure you subscribe to the channel. We have really good growth right now. Let’s keep it going. Also, if you want additional comparison videos, leave it in the comments section. I will add it to the schedule, and also like the video, that would be dope. And if you haven’t noticed, I have added a podcast, uh, to the descriptions of all my videos. So if you don’t want to be using up your phone data anymore, uh, watching these videos, you can listen to the audio of these videos on the podcasts which I recommended you. I’m available on itunes, Google play. I believe I’m on Spotify, and I think Player dot FM. And there’s one other that I’m on that I don’t really quite remember. Oh, I think I’m on Stitcher as well. Yeah, I think it is Stitcher. So yeah, just find me, CS Joseph, and get those podcasts. Uh, so you’re not using up too much mobile data on your phones, if the Youtube videos are doing that, that way you can just kinda take me on the go wherever you are. Maybe while you’re commuting. Who knows? So with all that being said, I’ll see you guys tonight.
