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 a group. Some members have ISFJ personality type preferences and others have ISTJ preferences.

They start by writing with the two type preferences in the center. The descriptors surrounding the type names for I, S, and J describe the reflective, quiet, factual, realistic, organized and scheduled approach generally taken by ISJs. The T/F differences, seen in the upper right of the image, show the T/F polarity of analytical/empathic.

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.
