Illustrations of Type – ISTJ and ISFJ

Illustrations of Type – ISTJ and ISFJ

By Donna Dunning

In my MBTI® Certification workshops participants respond to the instruction -“Describe your type using words, phrases, or pictures.” I find these visual representations of type preferences help illustrate individual differences.

Here is a photo of a response from two individuals working on the task together. One has ISTJ and one has ISFJ personality type preferences. The placement of the letters T or F is used to show differences between the auxiliary functions, but most of the words they have chosen describe their common dominant function, Introverted Sensing (Si).

Take a look at the first combined ISTJ/ISFJ illustrations and the second combined ISTJ/ISFJ illustrations in this series to see more interactions between the dominant and auxiliary functions.

There are also several other posts in my blog that you can read if you are interested in knowing more about ISFJ preferences or ISTJ preferences.

    The ISFJ responses sound a lot like me. I’ve typed myself as ISFJ, but still sometimes wonder if I’m INFJ. Oh, well, things to ponder.
