ISFJ / Virgo
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.
The Defender/Virgo is quite unique. Though they are generally a conservative type, they are often receptive to change and new ideas. Always paying attention to the smallest details with a deep sense of humanity, they are one of the most careful personality combinations. This personality gets the job done without complaining and they are amazing friends, always there to lend a helping hand or give advice. Being very practical they are incredibly adept at big picture thinking. Defender/Virgo has a rich inner life and may come across as shy when first meeting. They won’t spill their secrets right away, but once you earn their trust they will be a friend for life.
These personalities are often meticulous to the point of perfectionism, and though they procrastinate, they can always be relied on to get the job done on time. They take their responsibilities personally, consistently going above and beyond, doing everything they can to exceed expectations and delight others, at work and at home. Expecting perfection from themselves, they may project those high standards on other people in their lives and they hate feeling let down. They can be very self critical, so tread softly when problems arise and you’ll get a much better response.
If you think you’re dating a shy Defender/Virgo, trust that those walls will fall down in the bedroom! Extremely passionate, these people specialize in connecting to their physicality and this personality loves and celebrates physical connection with their partner. These people are often slow to fall in love. Conservative and careful with their hearts they benefit from a more flirtatious partner to start things off. They appreciate a direct and tactful approach, prizing honesty and openness in their partner. Defender/Virgo are more about action than words and more quality over quantity. They may not verbalize their adoration, but pay attention to their actions and gestures. They take dating seriously and only enter into relationships that have a real chance of lasting a lifetime. Defender/Virgo’s shyness and sensitivity shield what are, beneath the surface, incredibly strong feelings. As they often continue to struggle with emotional expression, they have the opportunity to let physical affection stand in for their loving words.
The Defender/Virgo prefers an evening with good friends to a huge party and values downtime just as much as socializing. They don’t need to fill their calendar to feel content. Their ability to connect with others on an intimate level is unrivaled among Introverts, and the joy they experience in using those connections to maintain a supportive, happy family is a gift for everyone involved. They may never be truly comfortable in the spotlight, and may feel guilty taking due credit for team efforts, but if they can ensure that their efforts are recognized, they are likely to feel a level of satisfaction in what they do, that many other personality types can only dream of. Bottom line, these people work hard and their work ethic inspires everyone in their life.
