"It makes me uncomfortable to talk about meanings and things. It's better not to know so much about what things mean. Because the meaning, it's a very personal thing, and the meaning for me is different than the meaning for somebody else."
David Lynch


Interviews – particular from when a person is young – are useful for familiarizing yourself with the visual and temperamental aspects of different types.  Notice David’s facial expressions, eye movements, posture, mannerisms, speech patterns, and responses to others.  Over time, you will recognize similar patterns in other ISFPs.


Although not as immediately apparent as in interviews, a person’s type shines through in the work they create as well.  Notice the aesthetic, themes, and approach with which David creates his films.  What light can this shed on the mind of ISFPs in general?
