ISFP 1w2 (The Complete Guide)

ISFP 1w2

ISFPs dare to dream. ISFP 1w2 dreams about perfection. That’s it—that’s the entire article. However, it’d be nice to provide a more detailed breakdown.

If you’re ready, let’s go!

Who is the ISFP 1w2?

ISFP 1w2s are perfectionists with a truckload of generosity. They have higher standards backed up by idealistic values. In other words, ISFP 1w2s strive to be highly reliable, efficient, and flawless. This often conflicts with ISFP’s instinct to be more relaxed and laid-back.

Because of their wing, they are kinder, more considerate, and perhaps more aware of group harmony. While this is true, it doesn’t necessarily mean they compromise their standards to keep their peace.

Type 1 makes sense for ISFPs because of their introverted feeling (Fi) function. However, being a type 1 goes beyond values. So, its presence, along with type 2, means some traits of the ISFP will be altered.

ISFP 1w2s are more likely to be assertive.

What is the Core Desire of the  ISFP 1w2?

The core desire of the ISFP 1w2 is to be perfect. Unlike other type 1s, there’s less emphasis on being perceived as perfect. Instead, they want to be perfect according to their values and Fi’s beliefs.

What is the Core Fear of the ISFP 1w2?

The core fear of the ISFP 1w2 is to be corrupt. They don’t want to go against what they believe in. To achieve this, they are often stubborn and unyielding, sometimes even when presented with solid evidence.

How the 1w2 Changes  the Natural Tendencies of the ISFP

1.   Perfectionists

ISFPs are not perfectionists. They usually focus on what they love (more on that later). ISFP 1w2s are different. While they have their passion, they are more interested in perfection. They want to do everything flawlessly.

In a sense, you can say their biggest passion is perfection. It doesn’t always end well.

2.   More Extroverted

ISFPs are introverts, which means they derive energy from spending time alone. ISFP 1w2s are the same but with a twist. Because type 1 is so assertive about their beliefs and type 2 is more outspoken in their bid to be helpful, ISFP 1w2s will generally be more expressive than typical ISFPs.

This might make people perceive them as extroverts initially. However, they simply have a larger social battery.

3.   More Assertive

This follows the last point. ISFPs are very opinionated about different values and beliefs. ISFP 1w2s are not only opinionated but assertive about their opinions. They will stand by their beliefs and express themselves even when everyone is against them.

This has its pros. People often regard them as principled, which adds to their reputation.

4.   Higher Energy Levels

ISFPs are not known for their energy levels. While they love a good adventure, they are often guilty of being complacent. ISFP 1w2s are different. First, type 1 values perfection, and to achieve this, they work hard. Second, type 2 wants to be helpful, and to achieve this, they have to constantly try to be helpful.

That takes energy and discipline. So, ISFP 1w2s are forced to have higher energy levels. There’s just no way around it.

5.   The Need to Do the Right Thing vs Passion

For typical ISFPs, passion often comes first. For ISFP 1w2s, the gap between passion and Fi is considerably closer. For example, ISFP 1w2s are more willing to give up on their passion if it means doing the right thing.

They are also generally more committed than typical ISFPs, who might fear commitment.

6.   More Generous/Sympathetic

Generosity comes easily to type 2s, so it’s not a surprise that it rears its head here. ISFP 1w2s will care about others and try to help when they can. For example, volunteering in their free time comes easily to them.

While this is true, helping others will always come second to their values. They will put their feeling first at all times.

7.   Even Higher Moral Standards

Their need for perfection might explain the uptick in their moral standards. ISFP 1w2s are more ethical and morally conscious. This does not necessarily translate to being more religious. It just means they’ll have more boundaries in their conduct and lifestyle.

Their higher moral standards might be admired or seen as weird among others.

New Weaknesses of the ISFP 1w2

1.   Anger Issues

The problems of the ISFP 1w2 starts with anger. Type 1 is in the anger triad. Thus, they face every situation with some form of anger or frustration.

While it might seem like they’re angry at you, they might really be angry at themselves. When they are angry with you, it’s often connected to competence issues.

Simply put, working with them can be a hassle.

2.   Self-Criticism

Despite their high standards, ISFP 1w2s might criticize themselves often even when they have been near perfect. This has some ramifications.

First, ISFP 1w2 might start feeling like they’re never enough. Remember that despite being a type 1, ISFP 1w2s are still occasionally prone to their perceiving function traits.

Secondly, it can start affecting their self-confidence. ISFP 1w2s will constantly doubt themselves.

3.   Adventure vs. Rigidity

ISFPs are called adventurers because they absolutely love it. Type 1 is the complete opposite, as they are often more uptight and intense.

So, there’s a constant struggle between type 1 and ISFP’s inclinations. When there’s a balance, ISFP 1w2 will be happy and integrate into a type 7. In other words, they find the balance between adventure and perfection.

It doesn’t get better than that.

4.   Judgemental

The presence of type 1 and Fi guarantees judgemental feelings. ISFP 1w2s might feel superior to others or feel others are bad influences simply because of their different beliefs.

This has cons, such as an inability to network effectively. It might also isolate them from others. ISFP 1w2s need to understand that people are different. That’s what it means to be mature.

ISFP 1w2 in the Workplace

ISFPs go hard for their passion. They are creative people who find joy in working with their hands. They love seeing their work yield profits.

This is the same with ISFP 1w2. They also value efficiency and clarity while working because they don’t want to make mistakes. If their job allows them to have a positive impact, even better.

ISFP 1w2s will excel in all work environments with a slight preference for remote roles.

Ensure their role gives them some flexibility to get the best out of the ISFP 1w2.
