My Bio: The Provider (ISFJ)
Introvert (20%) = Think/reflect first before acting. Regularly require an amount of "private time" to recharge batteries. Motivated internally, mind is sometimes so active it is "closed" to outside world. Prefer one-to-one communication and relationships.
Sensor (42%) = Sensible and grounded, focusing on the concrete and the here and now. Use common sense and create practical solutions is automatic-instinctual. Learn through experience and are cautious with untested ideas. Memory recall is rich in detail of facts and past events. Appreciate tradition, but are open to new ways of doing things if there are tangible benefits. Best improvise from past experience. Like clear and concrete information; dislike guessing when facts are "fuzzy".
Feeler (26%) = Caring, supportive, appreciative. Prefer to cooperate and agree rather than argue over who is right, thus will naturally seek consensus and popular opinions. Instinctively employ personal feelings and impact on people in making decision. Naturally sensitive to people's needs and reactions. Unsettled by conflict; have an almost toxic reaction to disharmony.
Judger (13%) = Like to keep track of things in order not to be caught off-guard or unprepared, and for the same reason tend not to leave a decision up in the air or an issue unresolved. Plan many of the details in advance before moving into action. Focus on task-related action; complete meaningful segments before moving on. Appreciate flexibility, even a little spontaneity but most comfortable when in control. Naturally use targets, dates and standard routines to manage life.
