ISFJs are one of the caretakers of the 16-type system and not without particular esteem. Their sense of duty, loyalty, and commitment is an unrivaled trait that makes the ISFJ the go-to person for actionable care, sympathy, and down-to-earth connections. Otherwise called “The Protector,” you may know an ISFJ aunt, mother, or father who strives to do everything they can do to make you (and everyone else they love) comfortable, happy, and at peace. Or you may recognize that you, yourself, are a caring ISFJ.
While it seems like two personality types with one different preference would be similar, the differences between them can be staggering. Looking at two similar types may help you realize the similarities you first thought reigned supreme aren’t as deep as you once thought. The ISFJ vs. the INFJ is a case in point: the two types share many commonalities but are different when broken down to their nuts and bolts.
Do you ever meet someone and feel like you already know them? While there are 16 possible personality types in the Myers and Briggs system, some are more common than others.
The most common personality types appear time and again in the general population, so you can start to notice similarities between the way people think, socialize and structure their lives.
Here’s everything you need to know about the most common personality types and their shared traits.
