pretty legit...except for the journalism part :p

Guest (not verified) says...

Same here!

Guest (not verified) says...

Agreed. I've always been into journalism.

Just FYI, ISFJ is not more likely to watch TV 3 or more hours per day. ESFP and ISFP are actually the types most likely to watch more than 3 hours. Source MBTI Manual, p. 259

I agree,  I like to watch one hour show or a movie that's it.  Then I get up and do something else because I've had my fill-and my energy restored:)

Spot on!!

Lawson (not verified) says...

I thought I was an INTJ, but this profile fits me best for sure!

Guest (not verified) says...

I feel the same way. When I took the test I was an Introvert, a Sensor, and a Judge. When I got to the third part it said I was borderline between Feeler and Thinker because of my compassion toward others and my habit to thinking to myself.

Try reading up on cognitive functions in MBTI, that will most likely clear up the type confusion. Especially sine ISFJs and INTPs use different 4 main functions. :)

Nailed me! Oh my!

Guest (not verified) says...

dont u mean "lions and tigers and bears!"

Guest (not verified) says...

Except for my training and practice as an economist, any of my acquaintances would absolutely recognize this as a description of me.

Chowznbeautie (not verified) says...

Yep, this is exactly me... Now who am I compatible to?

Guest (not verified) says...

I'm a man, and this states that this is mainly a women's personality....
I hate to say it, but it is absolutely right about me. and now i know where to go from here.

Guest (not verified) says...

This isn't a women's personality. Many men have it too it's just more common among women. Also I would love to find a man with this personality. I know they would be as trustworthy & kind as I am. Lol :)

M.Dibella (not verified) says...

This fits perfectly, I'm surprised how accurate this is..

Catabisis (not verified) says...

Most men do not have ISFJ. I wonder if the ISFJ match has to do with me being raised by my mom. Ironically, I pursued a nursing degree. I dropped out of college due to advanced math. Just as the review stated, I struggle with abstractions. I told my instructor that I could grasp the math if I could apply it to something in my life like my checkbook. Interestingly, I aced psych and sociology. I identified both with experiences in my life. For me, this test measured my personality quite accurately. I should have taken in at age 18 instead of 50.

According to some sites on profile pages it says isfj is most compatible with estp or estj. But anyone can be in a relationship with anyone. you can get along with any type as long as they are willing to break down your shell and get you to open up which can take awhile.

Guest (not verified) says...

If u really want to grow as a person then an entj will help u do that.

It will be challenging, but the rewards are worth it. An entj can teach an isfj not to take things so personally. Imagine how much more effective an isfj
Could be if they didn't take so many things to heart.

Guest (not verified) says...

As an ISFJ, I take this to heart and I laugh.

GuestAly (not verified) says...

My husband typed at ENTJ :) and I am ISFJ, and this is pretty true. We've been married almost 20 years and still learn a lot from, and about, each other.
Including how to take, and interpret, how something is said.

Guest (not verified) says...

Oh, that is so amazing that you wrote, "If u really want to grow as a person then an entj will help u do that. It will be challenging, but the rewards are worth it. An entj can teach an isfj not to take things so personally." I am an ISFJ and am married to an ENTJ. It is definitely challenging. Thanks for your encouraging words.

Cbrodkin1 says...

My comment was wrong before about who we are most compatible with. who we are most compatible with is the estp and the esfp. it takes a long time for people to know me but I can open to anyone it just depends if they are willing to wait. I'm currently dating an introvert right now so it can work with any personality types.

Karen (not verified) says...

Thanks for this helpful information!!

damon (not verified) says...

fits my description to a T

caroline says...

WoW!! This is SO accurate! :) This is the first time i've read a personality test that makes sense and has actually helped me! its detailed and concise.

Guest (not verified) says...

very interesting...sounds like me

Guest (not verified) says...

It's crazy to read this and realize that it nailed it to a "T"

Cory (not verified) says...

This thing was way off

Guest (not verified) says...

Yes it was way off for me too. I am bad at every "good" career, and good at every "bad" career that they listed.
And I definitely don't have a girl personality.

Jeremy76 (not verified) says...

It's very much like me and explains a few things about who I am. Though I do like photography but would probably be more fulfilled in the serving occupations.

peacenbeauty (not verified) says...

This dead drivers m me but it's very predictable and boring personality type. Hate it. Have to change.

Tamijay (not verified) says...

As an ENFP woman in love with an ISFJ man, please know that this personality type is far from boring. I cherish his stability and his orderly personality/life. It gives me a solid foundation. He is curious and knowledgeable about many things and as such I'm always learning from him. He doesn't love to try new things, but when he is willing to, it's delightful for me. I'm so happy to have found a man who is thoughtful, attentive to details, and stable and reliable. Those things may seem boring until you have a life where they're absent, then you realize how valuable they are!

Rose1989 (not verified) says...

Agreed!!! I'm also an ENFP in love with an ISFJ and those are the things I love about him most. Well, my list is endless really -- but those are the attributes that bubble to the top when I'm trying to articulate why I feel so lucky.

Tamijay (not verified) says...

Lucky us :)  That's how I feel too. 

Tamijay (not verified) says...

I forgot to add, he is VERY masculine and athletic. These traits may be found more often in women, but it doesn't mean that men who share them aren't masculine.

CSM (not verified) says...

I am a INFJ and have 3 sons. We all took the test and my 14 year old son tested out as a INFJ also. The more I have thought about each of them and how they tested out, the more I see it. My son actually took the test twice to make sure. I don't think he was crazy about the results but it is so him! Thank you for giving insight on the male perspective and the positives you see there!  He is so kind and thoughtful and caring, I keep telling him he would be a great vet or doctor!  lol.. 

Tamijay (not verified) says...

It's a great personality type to have. Glad you're so encouraging of your sons. My man is a biologist and he loves what he does! I think this type succeeds at whatever they decide to . 

Glenda Jakes (not verified) says...

It's crazy to read something that is so me, reading this is like the person was sitting talking to me taking notes.

yorkiemom61 says...

Just unbelieveable on how "right-on" this is!

Guest (not verified) says...

I guess mine has changed, which im not sure its normal, but maybe it is--last time I took this test I was 'The Healer' and now I'm 'The Protector' its strange cuz I borderlined on 'Judge vs Perceiver' and I also borderlined on the 'Extravert and Introvert' this time though this personality is accurate as well haha :)

KristenDegase (not verified) says...

This was exactly right about. This is the best personality thing I have tried.

Guest (not verified) says...

what about degrees in psychology?

BRENDA (not verified) says...

I am an isfj going through trauma and mourning. anxiety over not finding the right job. depression

Justin S (not verified) says...

im scared now. O.O

Guest (not verified) says...

We need a compatibility field on here.

Guest (not verified) says...

really a girls personality.....-_-

L (not verified) says...

pretty accurate except for the part about gender roles. i despise gender roles.

RATWFSG (not verified) says...

Besides the fact I am an artist and Love photography this was pretty good

Guest (not verified) says...

Right? I'm on the fast track to getting a degree for Art so I can become a Graphic Designer, and I don't think I would do well with jobs that are super picky like corporate jobs, being a doctor, or a teacher. I'm too wishy washy for that! But everything else fits me to the T, just not the careers part...
