ISFJs are emotional manipulators who can turn people against them once others catch on to ISFJ’s tricks. They take everything personal and can be both emotionally fragile and volatile. They can push the bounds of other’s patience with their need for appreciation, validation and shows of support from loved ones. To get what they want, they may extend sickingly sweet gestures such as unsolicited gifts and dumb compliments to butter up their victim so they become malleable putty in their hands. This is what the FBI calls “grooming”.
ISFJs also enjoy gossip much like the ESFJ does. They love nothing more than discussing other people’s affairs and commenting on what they do. They may be guilty of rumor mongering and spreading half truths because they tend to believe a lot of the fake news they hear and in turn share it with other people like a sad adult game of telephone.
