What is ISFP personality?

ISFP stands for Introverted, Sensing, Feeling, and Prospecting (Perceiving), and this is a personality type under the MBTI classification system.

ISFPs are also known as adventurers, and these are people with Introverted, Observant, Feeling, and Prospecting personality traits. 

These individuals have open minds and love the idea of enthusiastically approaching life, new experiences, and they display a sense of grounded warmth. 

They have a unique ability to stay in the moment which tends to help them uncover exciting potentials.

However, despite their tendency to seek out new things and circumstances, ISFPs are definitely Introverts, and they may often surprise their friends when they lurk back into the shadows to recharge their mind and soul.

When they do step out of the spotlight, these individuals like to use the downtime for introspection and assessing their principles. 

They do not have a tendency to dwell on the past or the future, instead, ISFPs like to think about who they are. 

When they finally come back out for a new adventure, they are often quite transformed.

ISFPs also love to find ways to push their passions. 

In fact, this personality type is very likely to engage in questionable or even impulsive behavior like gambling and extreme sports.

Still, despite their engagement in risky behavior like that, their attunement to the moment and their environment allows them to do better than most. 

ISFPs also enjoy connecting with the external environment, including people, and due to their extroverted sense of feeling and intuition about other people, they also tend to have a certain irresistible charm.

ISFPs are also unique in the way they can act with amazing charity and selflessness – but they may also be prone to the opposite tendencies of self-centered identity, and may even start acting with selfishness, manipulation, and egoism.

ISFPs always need to remember how to become the person they want to be. 

ISFP anime characters

Thorfinn Karlsefni

Thorfinn Karlsefni is an ISFP anime character from the show Vinland Saga.

He is initially shown as an innocent and friendly boy who is searching for adventure, which sounds like a typical ISFP thing to do.

He also shares a good relationship with his family and enjoys stories told by Leif, another character on the show, about his adventures. 

He looks up to his father a lot and also decides to follow Thors by sneaking on his boat to follow him, which is another thing that may be associated with ISFPs, as these somewhat quiet individuals have a never-ending thirst for a new adventure, as evidenced in their tag “Adventurers”.

By the time he grows up, he becomes a rather aloof individual, showing coldness on occasion as well. This may be suggestive of the introverted aspect of the adventurous ISFps personality.

Thorfinn can also have a really bad temper and an impulsive nature.

Thorfinn’s reckless nature eventually causes his own suffering and failure. 

He eventually becomes a kind and good person as he matures more and more and gets over his issues.

Eren Yeager

Eren Yeager is an ISFP anime character on the show Attack on Titan.

Eren may be best described as being hardheaded, strong-willed, passionate, and impulsive, which are attributes seen often in ISFP individuals, and at the same time, he is also full of strong determination to protect mankind.

His adventurous spirit may be seen in his intense desire to escape the Walls. 

In addition, Eren cares deeply for his friends and family and often risks harm and even death to make sure they are protected. 

Also in a manner quite typical of ISFPs, Eren is also capable of engaging in violent behavior in defense of people he doesn’t even know. 

Haruka Nanase

Haruka Nanase is an ESFP anime character on the show Free!

Haruka is shown to be a quiet but determined individual, who seems to have a strong affinity for water. 

Many ISFPs may be somewhat attracted to the elements, given their love for adventure and their tendency to enjoy sensory inputs.

Haruka’s greatest asset is his confidence in his decisions, and he displays a rather cool persona.

Haruka has high regard for his relationships and this may be seen often during the show, and he can sometimes have quite strong reactions to problematic relationship situations.

Asahi Azumane

Asahi Azumane appears on the show Haikyuu! And makes a strong study for an ISFP anime character.

Asahi is a rather quiet and gentle person who has difficulties realizing that he is someone’s ace.

He can be somewhat weak-willed at the beginning but he eventually realizes that his will to play volleyball is much stronger than he thought, and after some time and a lot of help from those around him, he gains self-confidence.  

Asahi can be quite sensitive and prone to criticism, and tends to take almost everything to heart, for which he even earns the name “Glass Heart”. This may also often be true of a lot of ISFPs, as they tend to be quite weak when it comes to taking criticism of any kind.

Ojiro Mashiro 

Ojiro Mashirao is an ISFP anime character on the show My Hero Academia.

Mashiro is shown as having a very calm and noble attitude, and he displays a very deep sense of dignity, which can make him feel somewhat bad about accepting anything that he did not earn with all his own merit.

Like a true Introvert, he can also be somewhat sheepish and bashful, and he rarely enjoys the spotlight and is rather easily embarrassed. 

He shows a surprising amount of humility and is usually focused on doing hero work, which would presumably satisfy his innate need for newness and adventure.

In the Manga version, he is seen wagging his tail like a puppy when he is happy, which sort of displays the childlike enthusiasm that may be seen in ISFP individuals.

Genya Shinazugawa 

Genya Shinazugawa is a character on the show Kimetsu no Yaiba.

On one hand, Genya is foul-mouthed and ill-tempered, on the other hand, he shows introverted tendencies of being a “lone wolf” who refuses, frequently, any help from others and shows no interest in being polite or having any manners, which may show the dichotomy of opposing personality traits that may be seen often in ISFPs.

However, he does become a tad more open to cooperation during the battle against Hantengu, an Upper-Rank Demon, where he works with other characters to achieve victory. 

He becomes relatively more sociable after this instance, and sometimes he may be seen as being somewhat insecure due to some comments from other people, but for the most part, he continues to be himself, albeit more socially engaging.

Simon 

Simon is an ISFP anime character from the show Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann.

He is extremely polite and humble, as well as full of compassionate tendencies and bravery that is seen on multiple occasions. 

In the beginning, he is shown to be a shy and extremely withdrawn boy, who finds solace only while digging tunnels for the expansion of Jiha village. 

He eventually becomes inspired by some of the other characters around the same time as the sense of adventure seems to call out to him and as a result, he starts to engage a lot more in fights and other situations with other characters on the show.

He also shows great aptitude for battle and despite his original shyness, turns out to be a very good fighter who is capable of great bravery in almost all battle like situations.

Simon is also prone to intense emotions like jealousy and heartbreak. 

Ryuko Matoi 

Ryuko Matoi is an ISFP anime character on the show K.L.K.

She is described, in the shortest way possible, as fierce and stubborn. 

There is little that scares her, and in a true ISFP sense of passionate intensity, she often rushes headfirst into challenges and engages in reckless and impulsive behavior.

At the same time, she is somewhat self-conscious and this can be seen in how she becomes embarrassed after situations she may have been impulsive and thoughtless about.

As an ISFP would likely be, she also has phases where she is shown as being calm, polite, content, and warmly flattered. 

Ryuko also shows a typical ISFP sense of independence and determination in finding the person who took her fathers life.

She also tends to be stubborn quite often and lets emotions guide her rather than cold hard logic, as might be seen in other introverted personalities.

Tatsumi

Tatsumi is an ISFP anime character on the show Akame Ga K!

Most of the time Tatsumi gives off a kind, generous, level-headed, and friendly vibe. 

In the beginning, he is somewhat arrogant and naive in the early chapters, and he shows great displeasure of finish off people unless he is unjustly provoked.

He also shows great comradeship and it seems likely that he would make a skilled fighter despite his dislike of fighting.

However, at the same time, he also tends to have affection for his enemies, which can be seen a few times in the manga.

At one point in the manga, he admits that he has changed in a drastic way and that he feels his mind slipping, which is suggestive of the way ISFPs may sometimes withdraw from the world and turn off their adventurer side in favor of someone a tad more quiet and introspective.

Sasuke Uchiha 

Sasuke Uchiha is a character on the show and manga Naruto.

He was seen to be a happy child who is eager to please and to be worthy of his clan name. 

He has a very significant bond with his older brother, Itachi, whose mere mention can elicit strong reactions from Sasuke’s general calm demeanor. 

It is evident that Sasuke adored Itachi when he was a boy, and it seemed that he enjoyed his company above all others.

He is shattered when this brother tells him that he doesn’t love him and it changes him immensely, which may be seen in an ISFP individual who is going through some kind of trauma.

ISFPs are capable of great and intense emotion, particularly negative emotion, and they may feel traumatic events extremely deeply, and withdraw further than they would in any other circumstances.

Like a true adventurer and an individual that is trying to assess their surroundings by paying attention to every little detail, and saving this information to determine behavior at a later point, Sasuke immediately disregards those weaker than himself.

In a happy turn of events he becomes quite attached to his teammates later and starts to be happy and himself again, but tables are turned and after some adverse events he is defeated. 

Yajirobe

Yajirobe is an ISFJ anime character on the show Dragon Ball Z.

Yajirobe is quite asocial and he prefers to be by himself often, in most cases, so he can eat peacefully, and he is also prone to acting rudely towards others. 

True to the adventurer/vagabond trait of ISFP individuals, Yajirobe is unkempt and does not seem to care if his loincloth is visible to other people, engrossed more in the situations or sensory stimuli around him.

He has other impulsive as well as adventurous traits, for instance, he enjoys driving stolen cars, fishing, and hunting.

He is also brave on occasion, when the situation demands it, and often rushes to the aid of his friends rather quickly, and he tends to withdraw after every situation of intense activity.

Oolong 

Oolong is another ISFp anime character from the show Dragon ball Z.

He enjoys activities that may be viewed as reckless and impulsive, like smoking cigars and he is something of a pervert.

Oolong is also quite cynical and cowardly, and not only does he not hesitate to admit it, he is also somewhat proud of it.

Oolong is an odd portrayal of an ISFP, with more negative traits than positive, but he serves as a reminder that not all ISFPs are creative and imaginative, and move along merrily to the tune of their own adventures, they may also be flighty, somewhat cowardly, and their sense of adventure may not necessarily be the fantasy hero kind, but rather perverted and skewed.

He also shows traits like perception and a good sensory attunement to the situations around him and the people he is engaging with.

Ichigo Kurosaki

Ichigo Kurosaki is an ISFP anime character on the show and manga Bleach.

Ichigo used to be deeply sentimental, and considered his mother to be the center of his world, and was always seen smiling whenever she was with him.

He becomes somewhat stubborn, short-tempered, strong-willed, and impulsive, which may be seen in many ISFP personalities as they grow up.

He mostly tries to maintain a detached and “cool” image, like he doesn’t care what people think about him but this is not entirely true.

His ISFP type trait of being consumed by the things and sensations around him also causes him to have difficulty remembering people’s faces and names.
