Today’s type: ISFP. You likely show your appreciation for others with thoughtful actions and gifts. Try not to feel hurt if they fail to notice or mention your efforts.
That description focuses on the Sensing and Feeling parts of individuals who prefer ISFP. However, if you have ISTP preferences, you may tend to have more of a behind-the-scenes approach, and others may not notice what you have done for them. In turn, they may show appreciation in a way very different from the way you expect. Fortunately, as we get older, we tend to learn and then expect how others will respond and then hopefully not get hurt (or as hurt) if we aren’t appreciated back in the way we prefer.
