They are also very caring and have a great attention to detail. This type may surprise others with their analytical abilities. They are very loyal to friends, family, and their job. They may have a hard time dealing with change, but they eventually can come around and adapt. The ISFJ is very dutiful, but they can become resentful if they aren’t feeling appreciated. Sometimes they can take on too many projects without being asked, and expect to be recognized in return. This can be stressful because they are over extending themselves. The ISFJ makes a great and loyal friend. The ISFJ would be wise to figure out their true passions and enjoyment, and make more time to dedicate to their own hobbies. Doing so will allow the ISFJ to have a safe place to retreat when the world isn’t appreciating their many gifts and talents.
Enneagram Type 7 (7w6 7w8)
The Enneagram Type 7 is all about enjoyment. The Enneagram Seven wants to seek out entertainment and also be the center of entertainment. They enjoy seeking new experiences, which can be very exciting to them. However, they need to make sure that they don’t stretch themselves too thin and become burnt out. The 7 is all their best when they are looking at the world through the eyes of excitement and wonder. They are like a child when it comes to playing and experiencing the world. They are a fly by the seat of their pants type, and usually have thought a bit ahead about how to move effectively through the world without it becoming too restrictive to them. They enjoy being spontaneous, and can be rather inventive and creative with the world around them. This can make them seem a bit flighty, but their happy go luck attitude is contagious and they will naturally lift the spirits of those around them. Things tend to come easy for the Enneagram 7 and this is both a blessing and a curse. It is a curse because they tend to not recognize that they have easily developed a new skill that might be much harder for others to obtain, so they don’t give themselves enough credit. They may also be trying to do too many things at once, which would lead to them feeling scattered and not able to complete as many tasks as they hoped. However, the 7 has an optimistic and adaptable attitude that helps them land back on their feet. The Seven should live a very enjoyable life as long as they keep remembering how talented and gifted they are.
