ISFP (introverted sensing feeling perceiving) is one of the sixteen personality types defined by the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) test. ISFP is one of the more common personality types, making up about 9% of the general population.
ISFPs are creative and imaginative, with well-developed aesthetic senses. They are naturally suited for work in music, art, design, or other areas where an eye for beauty is important. They love to explore ideas and experiment with different styles, and constantly seek out new experiences, making them spontaneous and unpredictable. This, however, can lead to a lack of focus.ISFPs love to explore ideas and experiment with different styles, and constantly seek out new experiences.Click To Tweet
ISFPs also tend to have fragile egos and react badly to criticism — however well-intentioned, it is difficult for them to not take it personally. Like all introverted types, they need time on their own to think and recharge, but they still love to share their latest innovations with others.
Here are some famous people who fit the ISFP type.

what about shawn hunter as an isfp!!!
Prince Harry is isfp Not intj.
This is an interesting site, but your sources are inconsistent.
Arya’s an ISFP, not an ISTP ;) she’s Fi-dom [her quest for vengeance is much more Fi than Ti]. The Hound is Ti-dom. Harry Potter is a solid ISFP you left out.
Also, it’s not the right page, but Luna’s Ti-dom not Fi-dom; I’d put her at INTP.
Rembrand was also ISFP. And what about Vermeer! I saw a program about Picasso where they followed his life and the man who was doing the show was so amazed that he made his art always after something happened in his life. I think he was a model ISFP artist. He changed his style every time he changed inside. Not with a given plan or a meaning behind it, just for the art. They also made the same sort of show about Gaugain but he was a totally different person, but he was unique, so maybe you are right… (ISFP)
Bjork and Kurt Cobain are INFP (who the heck uses a personality chatroom as a source?).
Rhianna is ESFP.
This page is a joke.
You’re a joke. This person put so much time into this if you have a problem then go make your own website.

It doesn’t matter how much time they spent making this if its spreading false information.
steph w says
I think that the comments on the page speak more about the person leaving the criticism than the page or the writer. Just a thought. Why would someone have such a strong negative reaction to it? And not find a better way to say it?
I needed a like button for your comment
Joseph Levacy says
Dale Earnhardt Jr is an ISFP please list him
Rose is INFJ, as is Jane Eyre. Fe and Ni tend to mimic Fi in certain scenarios bc Fe adapts to the social scene quickly, and tends to reflect other people’s mannerisms, and Ni is quirky and individualistic.
Jeon Jungkook of BTS needs to be added to this list. He just did the test again and got an ISFP.
Jungkook is Isfp!
heath ledger, bjork and kurt cobain are infps
Where is my baby Jungkook?
This person worked hard on this who cares if its false info… i like to believe that I match with Rihanna!!!!! She is my HERO!!! When I saw her name on this list I got a boost in confidence… and then yalls comments ruined it all for me. ABSOLUTELY RUDE!!!!
Heath Ledger is an Australian actor.
