ISFJ ISFJs are most comfortable learning when:
♠ engrossed in short ‘here and now’ activities such as competitive teamwork tasks, role-playing exercises ♠ standing back from events as observers, e.g. taking a back seat in a meeting, watching a group at work, a video or presentation ♠ allowed to think before acting, to assimilate before commenting ♠ finding themselves in structured situations with a clear purpose ♠ shown techniques which achieve obvious practical benefits, i.e. in time, making a good first impression, dealing with awkward people ♠ they can try out and practice techniques with coaching and feedback ♠ exposed to a model they can copy, e.g. a respected boss or an expert with a proven track record ISFJs are least comfortable when:
♠ forced into the limelight, e.g. to act as leader, to role-play in front of onlookers ♠ involved in situations which require action without planning ♠ asked to do something without warning, e.g. to produce an instant reaction ♠ involved in unstructured activities where there is ambiguity and uncertainty ♠ the learning is abstract and theoretical and not related to an immediate need or practical benefit ♠ there is no practice or clear guidelines on how to do something ♠ they feel that people are going round in circles and not getting anywhere fast enough ♠ expected to act without clear guidelines or opportunities for planning or practice ♠ they can’t see sufficient reward from the learning activity, e.g. shorter meetings, standardization, greater efficiency ♠ faced with a lot of alternative or contradictory techniques and methods without any being explored in depth.
