What makes an ISFP

adventurer personality

I change over the course of a day. I wake up and I am someone, and when I go to sleep I know very well that I am someone else.

Bob Dylan

Adventurers are true artists, but not necessarily in the sense that they paint happy little trees. Often enough, however, they are quite capable of this. Rather, it is that they use aesthetics, design, and even their decisions and actions to challenge the limits of social convention. Adventurers enjoy shaking traditional expectations with experiments in aesthetics and behavior. You have probably more than once insisted not to be pigeonholed by those around you.

They are happy to be who they are

Adventurers live in a colorful, sensual world and are inspired by their connection with people and ideas. Adventurers enjoy reinterpreting this connection, constantly reinventing themselves and experimenting with themselves and new perspectives. No other personality type researches and experiments on such a large scale. This creates an element of spontaneity that makes adventurers' behavior unpredictable, even for their close friends and family members.

However, adventurers are certainly introverted and surprise their friends all the more when they step out of the spotlight to recharge their batteries. However, the adventurers' self-chosen solitude does not mean that they sit around doing nothing. They take time for introspection, analysis and reevaluation of their principles. Instead of dwelling in the past or the future, adventurers think about who they are. Then they return transformed from their self-isolation.

The adventurer's purpose in life is to find ways to realize their passions. Riskier behaviors such as gambling and participating in extreme sports are more common in this personality type than others. Fortunately, their attunement to the moment and their surroundings enables them to move forward better than most people. Adventurers enjoy contact with others and have a certain irresistible charm.

You always have a good answer ready to appease critics who want to call their behavior irresponsible and reckless.

However, when they are criticized, they often respond with sharp disapproval. Some adventurers can handle kindly formulated criticism and appreciate it as an alternative suggestion that could steer their passions in new directions. However, when it comes to biting or reproachful criticism, adventurers can lose their temper in spectacular ways.

Adventurers are tactful about other people's feelings and value harmony. When adventurers face criticism, it can be difficult for them to distance themselves enough and not get upset. The heat of the moment, however, can be felt on either side, and once a heated discussion subsides, adventurers usually forget about the argument and treat it as undone.

There is meaning in every manifestation of life

The greatest difficulty for adventurers is planning for the future. It is a difficult task for them to find constructive ideals on the basis of which they can formulate their goals and then work out goals that create positive principles. Unlike some other personality types, adventurers do not plan their future in terms of assets or retirement. Instead, they plan actions and behaviors as contributions to an awareness of identity. You are building a range of experiences, not a portfolio of investments.

When their goals and principles are idealistic, adventurers can display amazing charity and selflessness. But it can also happen that adventurers develop an egocentric identity and then act selfish, manipulative and selfish. Adventurers must actively strive to become what they want to be. It is not easy for adventurers to develop and maintain new habits. However, if they take the time each day to understand their motivations, adventurers can use their strengths to pursue their chosen goals.
