ISFP / Aries
Who is an Adventurer (ISFP)?
Adventurers are individuals with the Introverted, Sensing, Feeling and Perceiving personality traits. They tend to be spontaneous, friendly and sensitive people with a great sense of integrity. Creative and with a strong aesthetic appreciation, adventurers are also known for their artistic qualities.
Adventurer/Aries often have a very positive attitude and are less inclined to feel pity for themselves than some other personality combos. If harnessed properly, the fire that burns inside them is something that will fuel their actions, and will push them to become defenders for both themselves and others. They are action-oriented individuals. They are "doers", and are usually uncomfortable with theorizing concepts and ideas, unless they see a practical application. They learn best in a "hands-on" environment, and consequently may become easily bored with the traditional teaching methods, which emphasize abstract thinking. They do not like impersonal analysis, and are uncomfortable with the idea of making decisions based strictly on logic. Their strong value systems demand that decisions are evaluated against their subjective beliefs, rather than against some objective rules or laws.
They are entrepreneurial, independent and creative. Their crackling energy is infectious, and they are children at heart, buzzing with the force of life itself. The negative sides of Adventurer/Aries can translate into selfishness, impatience and a quick temper. While they are talented at ideation and making decisions, they can become easily frustrated or bored, leading them to abandon things just as quickly. They require a lot of independence and can become irritable if others try to control them. They like to be their own boss—but that doesn’t mean they always hold themselves accountable. They have no desire to lead or control others, just as they have no desire to be led or controlled by others. They need space and time alone to evaluate the circumstances of their life against their value system, and are likely to respect other people's needs for the same. They are likely to not give themselves enough credit for the things which they do extremely well. Their strong value systems can lead them to be intensely perfectionist, and cause them to judge themselves with unnecessary harshness.
The Adventurer/Aries friendly manner is often welcomed in social situations, and they typically have a wide selection of friends who welcome their enthusiasm and energy. An Adventurer/Aries in love may be jealous. More to the point, if they're jealous you'll hear about it sooner rather than later. This isn't a person who withdraws to ponder such things - they will let you know about it, whether directly or in a passive aggressive way, you’ll soon find out. These are passionate individuals. Although they are flexible and easy-going about many things, when it comes to relationships, they are committed and serious. People often underestimate them because they appear quiet and stoic. They are, in fact, people of intense sensitivity and possess great depth of emotion. Because they’re afraid of being hurt, they usually only show this emotional side to people whom they feel they can trust.
People with the Adventurer/Aries personality combo don’t like to be controlled – they loathe being micromanaged. At the same time, they aren’t well-known for their long-term focus, but rather their adaptability and spontaneity. They’ll use unconventional methods, sometimes risky ones, and existing rules are just someone else’s way of doing things. Still, they find a way to make things happen. To manage Adventurer/Aries personalities successfully, there need to be clearly set goals, and otherwise an open sandbox. They are overly competitive – Adventurer/Aries can escalate small things into intense competitions, turning down long-term success in their search for glory in the moment, and are unhappy when they lose.
