We will be looking at the above characters in detail. However, before we do that we will take a look at what the Myer Briggs Test and ISFP personality type are!

What Is The Myer Briggs Type Indicator?

The Myer Briggs Type Indicator is a self assessment psychological tool that assesses one’s personality to determine which of the following four functions they have, either introvert or extrovert, sensing or intuition, thinking or feeling and judgment or perception. 

The test demands that individuals answer yes or no to a series of questions that seemingly measure your likes and dislikes and attitudes towards people or things. The result is that the test assigns you a unique personality type out of the 16 major types outlined by this psychological tool. Although it is not scientifically backed, it has gained much fame in today’s world and is used widely.

Now that we have an idea of the Myer Briggs test, we will take a look at the personality of ISFPs so we can better understand which anime characters fall into this category!

Who Is An Adventurer?

An Adventurer or ISFP personality is one who is introverted, sensing, feeling and perceiving. These dominant functions will be described below!

The Dominant Functions Of The ISFP.

Introverts.

ISFPs are introverts in that they find peace and satisfaction in their thoughts and solitude. They prefer to spend most of their time alone, engaging in their thoughts, reflections and ideas in order to come up with productive ideas or understand their surroundings. They focus on their thoughts and hence can turn out to be individuals who are creative, logical or even innovative depending on the other elements of their personality.

Sensing.

People who use sensing as a dominant function understand the world using their five senses; they like to live in the now and observe or practically experience their surroundings. They are not as focused as others on what possibilities their mind has to offer rather they would simply take in information and process it to recognize what is already here but just extract it and make it useful. These individuals tend to focus on their past and present and hence may experience more stress compared to INFPs because they may recall bad or unpleasant associations with present stimuli.

Feeling.

Both the INFP and ISFP use the dominant function of feeling. They place much weightage on their emotions when it comes to understanding others and their surroundings and how it impacts them. Due to this function, they are more likely to consider values and core beliefs rather than fact and logic or the truth while making decisions. 

Perceivers.

People with this function appreciate the spontaneity in life rather than following an everyday mundane routine. They are quite flexible but can be disorganized too and don’t really believe in planning especially long term plans. They just go with the flow. They are not very stubborn in the sense that they like to have options, do not demand immediate results and hence are more likely to identify opportunities along the way.

7 Anime Characters Who Are ISFP Personality Types!

Ojiro

He is from the manga series of My Hero Academia where he is shown as a calm and peaceful ISFP personality type who does not become easily stressed out. He focuses on others and wants to make sure others are not ignored so he ignores or keeps his own feelings inside of himself. 

He is a student of Class 1-A at U.A High School and is training to become a Pro Hero. He is noble and has a deep sense of dignity hence he only believes in accepting what he deserves. This individual is shy as well and does not like being in the spotlight too much. 

Although he greatly focuses on others, he is hurt by comments he does not like and is thus sensitive. He may seem as if he is distant or aloof but he is aware of what is going around in his surroundings.

Eren Yeager.

He is the main hero from the manga series Attack on Titans and is a unique character. He is originally from the Shiganshina district which is located outside Wall Maria. Eventually, after the horrible incident where he loses his mother, he joins the armed forces with his stepsister and friend Armin!

He is an interesting character who has issues of anger and is very stubborn. He is not able to control his emotions easily but uses this to protect his loved ones. Eventually, he channels this negative energy to the Titans when he realizes the importance of self constraint and responsibility.

Haruka

He is from the anime series of Free and his full name is Haruka Nanase! He is handsome and has a cool personality and thus is popular amongst his peers! He is a great swimmer and is also the vice captain of the Iwatobi High School swimming club hence he utilizes his skill to gain a position. 

As an introvert, he is generally quiet and uses his time alone to learn to swim better as a young child which eventually pays off. 

Sometimes he appears very grim and does not like to think about the future much! Although not very expressive, he does have fun in some of life’s experiences especially those related to water.

Ryuko

She is another anime character from the series of Kill La Kill and is independent as well as competitive and is greatly driven by what she wants. With a closer look, you will realize she reflects the traits of the ISFP!

Tatsumi.

Appearing in Akame Ga Kill, he is another ISFP anime character who is focused on the present and what resources he currently has. He may seem like an extrovert at times but in reality he identifies more as an introvert. Although he is part of a close knit family he is not always comfortable sharing what he is thinking about or what feelings dominate him.

Sasuke.

Sasuke is indeed an interesting character because he is both a hero and villain in the manga series of Naruto Shippuden where he is shown as someone who is not very expressive but does feel many emotions. Also, he is someone who likes to work alone rather than in a tea, with others. Another character trait he possesses which associates him with other ISFPs is that he thinks about the now or the gone and not about the future.

Sasuke belongs to the Uchiha clan, a notorious ninja family, and one of the most powerful, allied with Konohagakure. He has a difficult past where his elder brother Itachi did a horrible thing; he murdered their entire clan which led to Sasuke having a traumatic past; this may be the reason why he is not able to move on and keeps looking back. Hence he is now on a mission to take revenge from Itachi, his brother. 

Thorfinn.

From the manga series Vinland Saga, he is the protagonist who rushes into situations and expresses how he feels without any hesitation. He is thus another anime character who is associated with the ISFP personality type! 

He is a former warrior of the Askeladd band, and the son of Thors, the most famous Jomsviking warrior until his defection.
