ISFJ stands for Introvert - Observant - Feeling - Judging
Being a Defender, you are a part of the
Sentinel tribe of personalities.
You are order-driven.
As a part of the Sentinel tribe, you tend to appreciate order, security, stability, and practicality.
Your motto is "Teamwork makes the dream work."
You are a natural cooperator, ready and willing to join the team, keep things in order, and get work done.
You must start with organization.
You’re willing to take on any task, no matter the size, as long as you can first get organized. Without clear organization and order, you quickly lose confidence and feel like you’re doing a poor job.
You love creating and using templates.
You naturally develop templates and systems for your own processes and are drawn to others’ ways of doing things so you don’t have to “reinvent the wheel” every time.
We're just getting started.
Specifically as an ISFJ...
You find Flow in your work
when you are supporting someone in a high-touch, hands-on way, such as giving genuine advice or providing acts of needed service. At your best, you’re in direct contact with the one you’re serving so you can be sure what you’re doing is having the intended effect on them. Remove yourself too far from the personal contact and you’ll lose flow and drive.
Your Power is realized when
the going gets tough and you get going, while others bow out. You won’t back down from defending a person or a cause you care about even in the toughest situations. Lean in, get serious, show up.
