Illustrations of Type – ISFJ and ISTJ

Illustrations of Type – ISFJ and ISTJ

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 a group who have ISFJ and ISTJ personality type preferences. Note how they clearly define their group as having 2 people with ISFJ preferences and 1 with ISTJ preferences. Paying attention to specific details tends to fit with people who prefer ISJ.

You can see their practical, informed, dependable, reflective approach from their descriptors.

The Feeling preference is also showing, with words such as sensitive, harmony, and values. Whether or not an individual prefers Thinking or Feeling, ISJs usually like to follow the norms and expectations of the group they belong to. Often, they enjoy being loyal, dependable, and trust worthy.

ISJs like to know what to expect and, as this group mentions, often dislike surprises and uncertainty.

You may also enjoy looking at how other ISTJ and ISFJ groups have completed this illustration of type exercise.

If you are interested in seeing how people with different type preferences complete this exercise, check out the Illustrations of Type series.
