Hey, it’s CS Joseph with CSJoseph.life, and tonight we’re going to be continuing our series on the 16 personalities according to union analytical psychology. Tonight’s a Type Profile will be the ISFP, also known as the artist. The behind the scenes artisan. Informative responding control is their interaction style. So let’s dive in. So this is the ISFP, if you notice, we have Timber, the cat, a drawing of a, my son’s cat, his name is Timber orange. Tabby likes to hang out on the roof and a shout out to Ren who asked me to, uh, put a cat on the whiteboard for her, for the ISFP video because she is an ISFP. So there you go. There is Timber, the cat, so on to the ISFP. So the ISFP is a freedom based creator. They’re very creative because they are an artisan and they’re focused on freedom.

Chase

They always have to have the choice to do whatever they want for the most part, if they feel that is inhibited, they could get ragey and uh, get really sour puss about it. Um, because Fi hero and when it doesn’t like something, it can get just really withdrawn and just kind of go away. And then if it really is big of a problem, they’ll just get ragey about it and have to react in the moment. A lot of people say that compared to ISTP‘s are slower to react to things which may be true, but that’s because they’re kind of silently judging to themselves well, how they feel about a situation before they actually make a decision because they’re not so much movement oriented. They’re very control oriented. They like to have some semblance of control in the environment that they’re in.

Chase

And that’s kind of how they approached their use of their Se parent, which is right here, uh, because they use their Se parent to, uh, to augment or activate there a mechanical genius. Now, a lot of ISFP‘s actually maintain that they are not mechanical geniuses, but I completely disagree. The reason why is because when I say mechanical genius, they take it literally and think that I mean that there are masters at mechanics at everything, which is not actually true, uh, from an ISTP standpoint. They’re kind of like the Jack of all trades, masters of none. But when they start focusing their craft, they can become a master. An ISFP a little bit different. They actually focus on trying to master one thing at a time instead of trying to do everything at once with their mechanical mastery and it has everything to do with what they’re in the mood for and what they want to do with their Ni child.

Chase

And, uh, that allows us, that allows them to focus on specifically things that they like and that they feel good about and things that they want to do. And through that focus, they’re able to follow up process with their Te inferior, their rational thinking and to, uh, to do a process of creation. And they become very creative because they’re focused on the art of their mechanical mastery. They’re not focused on solving a problem like an ISTP would or fixing something or making something better or improving something. That’s what ISTP‘s do. An ISFP is trying to create something from nothing and they can improve things over time, but it’s usually rooted from a initial art that they’re trying to do. Like for example, on my former father in line, he, he invented a house and the house was just this amazing masterpiece of art that he made.

Chase

Uh, he’s, uh, he’s invented all sorts of knickknacks and, and inventions and things, but it’s all from his art because he views his 40 acres of property as this canvas with which he paints upon. I was talking to an ESFJ woman on a, on a, on an airline right recently, and she’s married to an ISFP and she has an ISFP daughter. And her ISFP be husband, spends all his time out on the farm running the farm and doing the farm because the farm is his art. And in fact, like he’ll do cool crop circle designs or he’ll do a or he’ll paint his, uh, farming equipment in a certain way, uh, with certain amazing designs and he’s constantly drawing all the time for those designs, etc. But it’s always from the point of their arts and that’s where their mechanical mastery lies.

Chase

There is an ISFP on this channel who was starting to comment about introverted feeling and extraverted sensing and he, he said, I’m a guitarist, but that doesn’t make me a mechanical master. And like, actually it does. If you’re just focusing on guitar and becoming like the ultimate guitarist that walks the Earth, that’s still a form of mechanical mastery is just more focused just focused on what you feel good doing. Whereas the ISTP it’s not that way. They’re just about fixing or solving a problem per se. Whereas instead of actually drawing some form of self worth because ISFP‘s really want, they really want to give people a good experience and then they want those same people to think very highly of them so they can feel good about themselves, about the art that they’ve created. Because there are about delivering the ultimate experience and have people appreciate and think highly of that experience so that their name becomes this amazing label that has status with it.

Chase

Te inferior is all about status and that label, like so for example, if an ISFP who makes a painting and they sign their name on it, it’s the point where their name has value, has actual intrinsic value based on it just being on the painting, which increases the monetary value of that painting because their name is on it, right? and, uh, ISFP‘s these take that very seriously. In fact, uh, in, in some cases, they actually organize their life around their label and their personal brand in that regard. And it’s something truly amazing to see, especially when they, uh, they get their past, their early adoption stage. People are buying some paIntings, like For example, like I, um, I babysat and ISFP little girl when, uh, when I was, when I was growing up too. Um, and uh, you know, nowadays, uh, she’s like college age, post college days, but she makes these amazing paintings and like I have no problem offering money for those paintings because I would love to hang them up in my house because they’re just absolutely riveting.

Chase

Uh, they’re, they are amazing and I love as an ENTP to receive the arts of other people. I like to receive the experiences of other people, especially from ISFP types. It’s fantastic. It’s also one of the reasons why like ENTJ‘s so much because ENTJ‘s have an ISFP subconscious and as an, as an ENTJ matures, they actually start developing their ISFP subconscious more and creating amazing art on their own. Like I used to work for an ENTJ who owns a filming company and he got really involved with making movies and uh, doing uh, music videos for A-list recording artists and all of his work was fantastic. He had the most high tech gear for it. Absolutely amazing. Um, and I got a lot of respect for that guy and he helped me out a lot. He’s very altruistic.

Chase

I should have treated them a little bit better had I understood where he was coming from, I, I would have, but he’s a but his ISFP subconscious is an amazing thing. And watching the ISFP egos. It’s an amazing thing as well for, for absolute. So the, uh, the hero is all about how they feel. That’s their moral compass an ISFP will always know how they feel and oftentimes they get accused of silently judging other people from a distance because they just, they’re not always going to be sharing their feelings with everybody unless they trust them because they know that if they share their feelings, just anyone that may cause people’s opinions of them to change and because that they don’t like that. ISFP‘s are aware of how opinions of others change on a whim and it scares them. They really want to be able to create the ultimate experience and deliver it consistently to people which actually causes loyalty.

Chase

And remember how ISFP‘s are really. They really are all about their Te inferior brand. They want to have that brand loyalty there to take their reputation very seriously. They take their work very seriously, and I might be inaccurate here, but I think Nicki Minaj is a ISFP ego or ISFP, subconscious. I’m not sure yet. I haven’t really spent time paying attention to what type she is. Um, but I remember a story about her working with david guetta on, uh, their, uh, their song that they collaborated on called turn me on and David Guetta kept on talking about how she would make him redo the song over and over and over and over and over to get it right because she absolutely was committed to making sure it was absolutely perfect. Um, because it’s, you know, it’s her art basically. And David Guetta being an artist himself, he completely, you know, you know, he understood that dedication and that dedication comes to them from their Si critic because they know the experience that they want to give to other people and they do it responsibly. And uh, it’s important that because they’re being super responsible, what the experience that they’re giving to others. That when they receive other people’s experiences, they really critique it. And ISFP‘s are really good at critiquing other people’s art, other physical environments, whether or not, and they always know how they feel about it and that experience that they’re giving. Granted, you know, because they have low introverted sensing, not that ISFP‘s would ever admit to it because they won’t. They’re actually pretty forgetful now. They’ll remember things that are important to them and important to how they feel about. And if they feel good about something or they feel bad about something, they’re going to remember that. But all of that other information is just going to get thrown out.

Chase

You know, an ISFP is like, well, I can still remember stuff from 20 years ago. Well yeah, that’s because your mind is deemed it important, but usually moment by moment, if you’re gathering so much new information about the physical environment that is just kind of leaving your head and as go, well you can’t prove that. Well. I mean no one’s going to really want prove it to you anyway because you’re just going to feel bad when you find out that they’re right and no one wants to make you feel bad. So then you’re left thinking that you actually have an amazing memory when you don’t. Sorry. Anyway, uh, so Se parent is all about manipulating the physical environment, given that ultimate experience, that’s what gives them their mechanical mastery and Ni child is all about them doing what they want and it’s kinda, it comes off like it’s liquid luck, but it’s not.

Chase

They just can see the best path forward that they can move through and they’re very efficient about it, finding the, the ideal path for them to go forward and make a decision on or what they want, what they desire. It’s the source of their willpower and they want to give that good, ultimate master a magnum opus experience to others. And that’s how they do that. And they use that, their Ni child to kind of guide them as to what they actually want to produce or create. Te inferior talked about status. Talked about, uh, the labels and the brand of the ISFP the problem with Te inferior that they’re very insecure about how other people think of them and that can be a problem. That insecurity causes them to worry, you know, to be concerned or, well, it’s not a concern or worry, just afraid that others will think less of them or less think less of their work.

Chase

So they go out of their way to overcompensate in certain areas to make that people think highly of them and they’ll even completely scrap a project or work that they’re doing. Redo it from the beginning, just so that they know that other people are going to think highly of the work that they’re going to do because they’re masterpieces. Everything to them. They’re magnum opus or series of magnum opi are important to them. You know? So Fe nemesis is very interesting. The ISFP worries about how other people value them and value that work. Worries about how people feel about them and it’s part of their moral compass. They’re very heroic with how they feel because they know they spend such a lot of time being the most moral person in the world. They realize that other people just are kind of not as moral as they are.

Chase

And so because of that, they worry that other people, they like, they walk around in the world worried that other people are bad people or potentially bad people. Um, then it also causes them to make sure that they absolutely stay the good person as much as possible because they don’t want to trigger negative feelings in other people. And that’s why Fi hero is very sympathetic, it wants to be sympathetic to other people and sympathetic to the right cause because it’s all about what they believe. They believe in the good. The ISFP is concerned with the good. They don’t care about the truth. They care about what is good. They may say, well, I do care about the truth. No, you care about how you feel about the truth. It’s not about what’s actually true or false to you. It’s about what is a good or bad thing, right?

Chase

And they’re like, well, I feel that this is true, but that doesn’t necessarily make that true. It just means you feel good about it and you know the collective may say something is true and then you can actually start feeling good about that. ISFP‘s, because of Te inferior can be at risk of succumbing to group think because from their point of view if the collective says it’s a good thing then it really must be a good thing when in reality that not might may not actually be true. So ISFP‘s are susceptible to group think. that’s why they’re really good with being with SFJ’s because Ti inferior and Ti child of SFJ types can protect the ISFP from succumbing to group think and then making bad decisions because they’re so weak to the group think. They’re so sensitive to group think.

Chase

And that’s another reason why ISFP‘s are behind the scenes and they like to be alone because that aloneness actually takes them outside of the collective and then they don’t have to worry about the pressures, the problems of the group think. The problem is because they’re so far out of it, they have less experience with dealing with the group think. And that’s what actually also self fulfilling prophecy makes them weak to the group. Think so it’s important that they are coupled with SFJ’s or have relationships with SFJ’s and whatever possible way so that those SFJ’s can watch out and protect the ISFP from those problems. From those risks. Uh, we talked a little bit about Si critic, um, it’s where their longterm memory goes. They have a very sharp longterm memory, but it just, it doesn’t remember everything. And they are prone to forgetting things and they do forget things.

Chase

It’s because new data they have, they have a really huge RAM, but very small hard drive and new data is coming into their head constantly and pushing out old data that their mind just feels is not really that relevant, but they will categorize it, their memories and buckets and they can kind of unpackage them, uh, with their extroverted thinking if they think out loud and then they start remembering things because they’re thinking out loud and they think that that’s how they have a good memory. But in reality it’s not. It’s just how they process that they follow, with their extroverted thinking to be able to unlock those older memories and bring them back into view when they weren’t there before. So just, just remember that they can be forgetful in that way. If you’re struggling with an ISFP who keeps telling you that they remember everything, just start categorizing and keeping track of everything they forget and then show them the list later.

Chase

It’ll piss off their Te inferior and they’ll probably hate you for it. But if it’s really worth it to you to make that happen for whatever goal or reason that I recommend doing it but otherwise be very careful because you don’t want to piss off Te inferior because you might wake up, wake up the Ti demon, which is like the last thing you want to do with an ISFP. So any trickster, this is very interesting with the ISFP compared to the ISTP. The ISTP has Ne trickster, and this causes both of these types to be completely unaware of the intentions of other people to be aware of the collective unconscious. They have no, they have no metaphysical awareness, but unlike the ISTP, which they don’t really care about metaphysics, the ISFP actually kind of does it, wants to seek out the metaphysical.

Chase

That’s why they get involved with psychedelic drugs a lot. They get into the whole free love movement. I know a lot of ISFP‘s that are hippies alongside the NFJ’s or the NF’s for that matter. But they actually want to know the unknown of metaphysics because eventually as they get later in life, they’ve mastered physics so well with their extroverted sensing, they’re like, well, what else is out there? And they really start looking into the philosophy or just anything that’s metaphysical and that could be the occult, that could be writings by Eckhart Tolle or astral projection or Akasha fields. I mean, whatever, whatever hokey stuff you could think of. Right? ISFP‘s end up going to a point where they’re really interested in that stuff and they really want to explore metaphysics and they’ll even say or claim that they have premonitions sometimes, ISTP‘s do as well, but it’s even more so with ISFP‘s because they really, really value that metaphysical talk.

Chase

The problem is they’re just not aware of other people’s intentions towards them so they can be weak against like making poor financial decisions if they’re around an ENFP who will try to sell them on something or even an ENTP would try to sell them on something. And then the ISFP, literally a lamb to the slaughter. That’s Why they need to be around SFJ’s to protect them from those people. Those manipulative people. You know, an ISFP, like for example, they’ll um, they’ll make some arts and they’ll front it to people and those people wIll screw them and they’re like, well that was a lot of fair. And then their SFJ’s, are telling them, well, yeah, I mean obviously they were going to do that guy was shady, but the ISFP, doesn’t know they have Ne trickster.

Chase

So SFJ’s if you’re with an SFP, especially an ISFP, you have to protect them from those manipulative people. You have to. It is very important that you do. If they’re going to be around other people always be ready to protect them because they’re usually in their own world that don’t have the experience in how to deal with that group think, thought manipulation, etc. Or feelings manipulation. Because Fe can be used to manipulate feelings in as much as Te can be used to manipulate thoughts. So be aware of that SFJ’s to protect your SFP’s it is very important. And if you are an SFP and if you’re not in a relationship with somebody, an intimate relationship, find yourself an SFJ or, or at least an SJ because they will protect you, but being that you’re an SFP for better compatibility, definitely go with an SFJ, ESFJ or ISFJ. Both of them are excellent for an ISFP, I highly recommend it. Plus they’d be really willing to receive the experience you’re trying to give them, especially in the bedroom, um, you know, so they have no problem with you being on top of, you know what I mean? And that goes for both genders by the way. So, and, and, and, uh, those SFJ’s is really want to become the canvas on which you paint upon. So if you’re an ISFP, definitely go for an SFJ for sure. Now Ti demon is really interesting. It’s all about the truth, right? With its sense of logic. So the ISFP is like, well, I go out of my way to make it a good experience, uh, to create this amazing art for you. But you think it’s crap. You don’t appreciate it. Um, and you’re telling me then you’re just criticizing me over and over and over.

Chase

Te inferior is very sensitive to criticism and if you over criticize it, the Ti demon will be like, okay, you want to talk truth, let’s talk truth then. And then it instantly flips into INTP, superego, where they’re literally trying to engineer ways to end your life or engineer ways to harm you or to send you down a rabbit hole that will basically cause huge damage to you later. And to the point where like, uh, you know, because they’re, they’re, they’re, they’re supporter shadow is trying to be supportive of you. And it’s like, I’m so supportive. You, why am I loyal to you? Well, I’m not going to be loyal to you anymore if I’m going to do the time, I may as well do the crime. Right. That’s What’s fair. Right. You want to keep the ISFP from anything that’s fair because if they start talking fairness that’s when you need to run for the hills because from their point of view, the amount contributions that they have done for you and all the good feelings that they’ve put into all of that effort for you, uh, gives them licensed basically to cut your head off with their INTP superego with some kind of crazy invention, like, oh look, I just invented this really new cutting edge invisible guillotine that teleports behind you and lops your head off and you don’t look at it as weird as that sounds. But that’s a very INTP approach. That’s what they’re going to do in that situation. And the thing is, is that you won’t see it coming. Like they’ll, there’ll be super behind the scenes, super shady about it. And then all of a sudden out of nowhere, bam. And you don’t even know what happened, right? That’s because the ISFP, which is usually upfront and willing to go to blows and ruling with their Se parent get, they get super ragey. They get ragey because they have to react to the problem immediately because if they wait, that problem loses energy and it doesn’t mean as much to them anymore because It’s no longer in the moment because of Se parent, but if they’re in Ti demon mode, they will wait for the opportune moment to strike and they will strike you where it hurts and they will destroy your future.

Chase

You will no longer have a future because of Ti demon. So watch out. So how do you avoid all this conflict? Always make the ISFP feel good. You do that by telling them how, how high you think of them, and how highly you think of them consistently. You always let them do what they want. You always compliment them on giving you a such a great experience. You tell them how much you appreciate what they do for you and their contributions to you. You make sure that you criticize them properly. Down here. Don’t criticize it based on what you think of them. Just tell them that they need to remember things more. Uh, tell them that they need to be like, even though they’re so concerned about everyone else’s experience and their concerned about their art, they also need to be focused on themselves too and take care of themselves in this way, even though they usually do because of Fi hero and Se parent, they’re very, very capable of taking care of themselves and they even how they dress, it’s very flashy and kind of, it kind of looks like outgoing even though it’s, it’s not really because they’re there behind the scenes and introverted, but they still want to give a good visual experience to others.

Chase

But, but that doesn’t mean you know that they’re going to go out of their way to take care of their bodies sometimes. I mean, I’ve noticed a lot of ISFP‘s that have a hard time taking consistent showers because they are, they’re not in the mood or they’re busy focusing on their art, you know what I mean? Then they can neglect themselves. So you have to make sure that you support them by reminding them constantly to not neglect themselves while they’re focused so much on their art, as, as it as it were. Um, and also protect them from the bad intentions of other people. It is consistent and never ask an ISFP what they think like ever. That’s dumb. That’ll activate the demon immediately. Ask them how they feel. All right? And they’ll be constantly asking you what you think because they don’t want to think.

Chase

They just want to know what you think. So they can use that as a boundary with which to work under or live their life. So anyway, that’s it for ISFP‘s. If you found this video to be helpful, educational, enlightening. Please leave a like, or subscribe if you have any questions about ISFP‘s, please leave it in the comments section and I’ll do my best to answer your questions. Uh, and, uh, if you guys have any opinions about ISFP‘s or ISFP‘s you know, go ahead and talk about that as well. Um, I do have a question though. Uh, my question is, is that, do you know, like what is your favorite kind of art that you’ve seen in ISFP do? And go ahead and post in the comments section. I’d like to get some photos and see if some really cool art because I love arts. My ISFJ subconscious just loves art and I love to receive art and see these amazing things that are created. So by all means, add that to the channel. That would be a, add that to the comments section for this video. That would be fantastic. So anyway, tomorrow’s video is the INTP. So we’re doing that and uh, I’ll see you all then. Have a good night.
