[16 types] Consider the masculinity of ISFJs.

16 types]

Unusual (?) I found something interesting in the predictive search for type S. ISFJ masculinity.”

To put it bluntly, some types are a bit far from masculinity, but there are still places where they are a bit masculine or cool.

So, let’s talk about ISFJ masculinity in various ways!

ISFJs are not the masculine type.

As I mentioned at the beginning of this article, ISFJ is not a manly man. If anything, I would say that ISFJs are more maternal in nature.

They prefer tradition, universal values, and “something like that,” and I’m sure many men struggle to be masculine.

However, no matter how they struggle, the essence lies in their gentleness and ability to adapt to their surroundings. If you make the mistake of saying, “Follow me! or forcefully leading the people around you.

Rather, to put it bluntly, he is a follower type. They are more at ease being escorted than being escorted, and they are suited to the role of assistant, faithfully following the leader.


A pawn is a pawn no matter how far it goes. Even if they are to be led strongly, they will probably end up as middle managers who are faithful to their duties.

So, ISFJs are a bit far from heroic, where is their masculinity?


The Masculinity of ISFJs

So, let’s consider the masculinity of ISFJs. What is their masculinity?

Daring to protect those his love

The first aspect of ISFJ masculinity I would like to discuss is this.

ISFJs are said to be the follower type and at the same time the behind-the-scenes type. What this means is that they can be seen as people who are loyal to the people they care about.

What does this trait have to do with masculinity? Isn’t it rather unrelated to masculinity? I am sure there are many people who think so.

However, masculinity is still here.

……I don’t want to be too blunt, so I’ll tell you the conclusion.

I will protect the ones I love even if it kills me. This is the typical ISFJ manhood.

ISFJs are like loyal pawns. They try to do and say what they like about their loved ones, and they are not sycophantic or deceitful, but truly in tune with the feelings of the people they care about.

If someone is in trouble, they will always look for something they can do to help, and if they are involved with a thug, they may even put up with their fear and try to protect them.

It is the latter that I would like to focus on this time. Even if you are crippled by fear, you may give up your life to protect someone you love. What can I say about this without calling it masculinity?


If you are a man, you try to be a man.

I feel like it’s not manliness itself, but …… many men also try to be manly. This is another admirable trait that leads to masculinity.

ISFJs are the ones who prefer tradition, prestige, and a particular mold.

It is not uncommon for ISFJs to prepare a template that they have built up from information they have gathered, which is often, for example, their own version of “masculinity” that they have researched on the Internet.

When I have a girlfriend, I use this template and try to make her feel like a man.

To summarize what I am trying to say, here is what I am trying to say.

I want to be like a man.

Research masculinity on the Internet and in books to gain knowledge about masculinity

Think about “masculinity” in your own way based on the information you have gathered

After thinking about it, create a template that you can say “This is manliness! After thinking about it, create a template that you can say “This is masculinity!

Act according to the template of “masculinity” that you have come up with

This is how ISFJ men build their masculinity.

For example, when escorting a girlfriend, they research up how to escort her gently, or check out a restaurant with a nice atmosphere with a magazine in hand.

I think you can see this in the way he thinks “as a boyfriend, I have to be a manly man” during dates.

You are pretty stubborn.

Well, if you call it manliness, it is also manliness (?). I guess.

If I were to deal with the dating issue I mentioned earlier, they are very faithful to “the manliness written in books and on the Internet” and “the template of manliness that I have shaped for myself.

In other words, they are so faithful to what is written and to the template that they tend to think, “This is the correct answer to masculinity.

In short, we tend to think that books and our own ideas of masculinity are absolute.

And ISFJs value what they have experienced and the facts that are happening in front of them. What I mean is that I am very negative about phenomena and situations that I have not experienced or had happen to me.

What can happen as a result of these things combined is a core strength as strong as a stubborn father. Sometimes stubborn.

There are moments when the word “stubbornness” is exactly right for ISFJs. That is when the correct answer that you thought was right is violated. In other words, when you are exposed to the possibility that you were actually wrong.

It is said that when a person encounters the possibility that he or she was wrong, he or she may become more attached to his or her own ideas.

This is exactly why ISFJs become very stubborn when their rules of thumb and acquired knowledge are rejected.


ISxJ is a species with a reputation for not making exceptions. So that leads to stubbornness.

For example, “This is the right way to treat this person! There is no other way!”

ISFJ has a goodness that is not only masculine but also unrelated to masculinity

I’ve said it all, but the beauty of ISFJ is not only in its masculinity. Rather, it is something that has nothing to do with masculinity.

So, let’s take a quick look at some of the typical advantages of ISFJs.


After all, this is what it’s all about. Especially, the kindness to one’s relatives is the best.

ISFJs are the type of people who are kind-hearted. They are quick to recognize the right way to treat others and put it into practice.

For this reason, there are many people who have been helped by ISFJs.

After all, they are kind to their people no matter how far they go. Sometimes they may be called naive, but I think it is safe to say that being able to be and care for people’s feelings is a wonderful advantage.


ISFJs are very loyal and obedient to their loved ones. We will consult with our loved ones when they are suffering, and one of our strengths is that we truly want to remove the hardships of our loved ones.

Since they are basically selfless in a good way, many of them are thin on stubborn convictions and the spirit of pushing people away to gain advantage. For this reason, they are loyal anyway, especially to people they like and their superiors. They try to fulfill their wishes to the best of their ability.

Unlike per INFJs, who tend to guess or make hasty decisions, they follow what they are told, so their trustworthiness is different.


Because they are modest, they are kind but not overbearing. This is another strength of ISFJs.

If someone has a cold, they basically don’t barge into someone’s house …… without being asked. They would quietly take care of that person’s business or something like that.

Basically, they are the type of people who don’t overdo things, so it’s easy to get the impression that they are “modest good-natured people.


Despite their modesty, ISFJs can be described as quite dedicated types.

If someone in their lives has been injured, they will think hard about whether there is anything they can do to help, and they will actually take action (if they are convinced that they are not in the way).

If they are told to do something, they will do it unless it is unreasonable, and they will protect their loved ones even if it kills them.

In this sense, he is a follower type.

Empathy with feelings

The follower type empathizes with the feelings of others and is good at becoming them. Therefore, they are sympathetic and kind to most people.

You have a strong sense of empathy, but it is an ability that you have acquired because you focus on “how the other person would feel.

However, all of these sympathies are limited to what they see and feel (they basically dislike speculation), but even so, their sensitivity is extremely high.

High degree of certainty

Preferring to follow established methods, they are very certain about things and work in a solid and consistent manner.

These characteristics are particularly apparent in the way they work.

They are precise and complete in everything they do because they follow a sure path steadily. Although they are not the most dexterous in their approach, they are easy to trust because of their certainty.

Anyway, you are loyal

Anyway, you are loyal to those who are important to you and those who can give you proper instructions. He is not the type to break the circle by mistake.

They are obedient and loyal, so they don’t do anything out of the scope of what they are told, and they are very useful as organizers. Whether they are useful or not, almost no one is wicked to them as an organizer.

They are sometimes too obedient and worrisome, but without people like them, the organization would not run. In that sense, they are by no means unnecessary people.

Their role as lubricants is excellent.

In general, they are excellent lubricants for a well-run organization.

There are a few people who are faithful to instructions from the top, yet are overbearing to those below them. They are always aware of the intentions of the organization and the feelings of those around them, and they can be kind-hearted and consultative. They are definitely the type of person who facilitates relationships within the organization.

The drawback is that they are cold or hostile to people outside the organization or those who are beyond their understanding, but as a …… organizer, that is probably a good thing.



So, in this article, I have summarized the masculinity of ISFJs.

He is not the type of person whose strength lies in his masculinity, as he clearly has more strengths that have nothing to do with masculinity.

It is not the type of masculinity that is associated with the so-called “silently hot and dynamic in all aspects, yet loyal and humane.

However, it is not the case that all ISFJ men are effeminate and miserable.

This makes it clear that masculinity is not the only thing that makes a man good.

I have a stronger image of femininity, but it is not so if I ask if all men are nayo. They are interesting people.

However, they are quite adaptable, so if they are asked to be masculine, they may go surprisingly well.

Whatever the case, they are the type where gentleness precedes masculinity.

I would like to see the good qualities of each person, rather than setting a uniform standard and looking at everyone in terms of superiority or inferiority.

And that’s all for this issue. I have posted various other articles, so I would appreciate it if you could take a look at them for yourself.
