Defender (ISFJ) - ARIES

Who is a Defender (ISFJ)?

Defenders are individuals with the Introverted, Sensing, Feeling and Judging personality traits. They tend to be humble, hard-working, and enthusiastic people who prefer to focus on the details, rather than the bigger picture. Emotionally orientated, defenders are sensitive to other people's feelings and have a deep understanding of their own.

Defender/aries are children at heart, buzzing with the force of life itself. With a keen memory, an eagle’s eye for observation and an absolute determination to account for every detail, they are practical workers par excellence. When focused on a mission, they possess a Sherlock Holmes-like disposition to solving practical problems, built on an in-depth understanding of concrete facts. Hardworking, intense and serious when a task needs to be completed, they are super competent go getters who bring a hard-nosed approach to their work that can sometimes seem excessive to others. But it’s important to remember that they care deeply about people. When they put their game face on it is a sign that they believe what they’re doing will improve people’s lives and is worth taking seriously.

Defender/Aries never does anything half heartedly, so if you are spending time with someone with this combo then you will feel the full force of their zest for life. Their argumentative nature and their desire for justice means that they will stand up fiercely for their friends and partners in arguments. You can always count on a Defender/Aries to do and defend what is right. They have a rich inner world that is not usually obvious to observers. They constantly take in i nformation about people and situations that is personally important to them, and store it away. This tremendous store of information is usually startlingly accurate, because they have an exceptional memory about things that are important to their value systems. They do not usually express their own feelings, keeping things inside. If they are negative feelings, they may build up inside them until they turn into firm judgments against individuals which are difficult to unseen, once set.

They’re one of the most physically protective people, typically not hesitating to risk life or limb if a loved one is in danger. A Defender/ Aries in love may become jealous fairly easily and they don't sit back and fester in anguish, but will explain themselves. They value harmony in their relationships. They will serve and please their friends, and even more so their partners, by finding practical needs and then meeting them, sometimes even anticipating these needs! They are simply wonderful in this aspect in the way they care, love and nurture their relationships. However, sometimes people, their partners included, take advantage of them and abuse their kindness. They take dating seriously and only enter into relationships that have a real chance of lasting a lifetime. It’s a must to share at least a few interests and hobbies, and the partnership always has to be moving toward something for them to stay engaged and motivated. They are incredibly physical and their relationships are usually characterized by white-hot sexual chemistry.

When the goal is right, they take all this support, reliability and imagination and apply it to something they believe will make a difference in people’s lives – whether fighting poverty with a global initiative or simply making a customer’s day. Given a little time, this enthusiasm grows into loyalty – they often form an emotional attachment to the ideas and organizations they’ve dedicated themselves to. Anything short of meeting their obligations with good, hard work fails their own expectations. Their high levels of energy mean that they can work for long shifts quite easily. They also tend to be very good at keeping records, and being very particular with details.
