Their tendency to push boundaries notwithstanding, ISFPs are sensitive to others’ feelings and value harmony highly. When faced with criticism, it can be a challenge for ISFPs to step away from the moment long enough to not get caught up in a bout of name-calling.
If their goals and principles are good and noble, ISFPs can act with amazing charity and selflessness, inspiring others to do good as well. But it can also happen that ISFPs will establish a more self-centered identity, in which case they can act with selfishness, connivance and egoism.
Mediator personalities are true idealists, always looking for the hint of good in even the worst of people and events, searching for ways to make things better. While they may be perceived as calm, reserved, or even shy, Mediators have an inner flame and passion that can truly shine.
At their best, these qualities enable Mediators to communicate deeply with others, easily speaking in metaphors and parables, and understanding and creating symbols to share their ideas. Fantasy worlds in particular fascinate Mediators, more than any other personality type. The strength of their visionary communication style lends itself well to creative works, and it comes as no surprise that many famous Mediators are poets, writers and actors. Understanding themselves and their place in the world is important to Mediators, and they explore these ideas by projecting themselves into their work.
Unlike their Extraverted cousins though, Mediators will focus their attention on just a few people, a single worthy cause – spread too thinly, they’ll run out of energy, and even become dejected and overwhelmed by all the bad in the world that they can’t fix.
(A million times this. I’m still dealing with the fall out from my decision to pursue writing instead of something like law)It’s often a risk to break away into something less dependable, but more rewarding. To find a career that resonates with Mediators’ values though, that’s more than just a job, sometimes it’s just what needs to be done.
