ISFJ - Protector Supporter

*Adapted from Linda V. Berens and Dario Nardi, Understanding Yourself and Others: An Introduction to the Personality Type Code (Used with permission)


The ISFJ theme is protecting and caretaking, making sure their charges are safe from harm.

Talents lie in making sure everything is taken care of so others can succeed and accomplish their goals.

Desiring to serve individual needs, often work long hours.

Quietly friendly, respectful, unassuming. Thrive on serving quietly without fanfare.

Devoted to doing whatever is necessary to ensure shelter and safety, warning about pitfalls and dangers and supporting along the way
