ISFJ / Leo
Who is a Defender (ISFJ)?
Defenders are individuals with the Introverted, Sensing, Feeling and Judging personality traits. They tend to be humble, hard-working, and enthusiastic people who prefer to focus on the details, rather than the bigger picture. Emotionally orientated, defenders are sensitive to other people's feelings and have a deep understanding of their own.
If you value honesty, bring a Defender/Leo friend into your circle. They’ll alert you to the piece of kale wedged between your teeth and, just as easily, tell you it’s time to cut ties with your insufferable partner. And they’re looking for pals they can trust in return. This loyal personality combo is also by your side cleaning up cocktail glasses and confetti after the guests have said their goodbyes. Supportive Defender/Leo is gifted in the art of motivating their friends. Expect TED talks on the reasons you deserve a raise, inspirational quotes flooding your inbox and plenty of heartfelt compliments. They have a very clear idea of the way things should be, which they strive to attain. They value security and kindness, and respect traditions and laws. They tend to believe that existing systems are there because they work. Therefore, they're not likely to buy into doing things in a new way, unless they're shown in a concrete way why its better than the established method. They learn best by doing, rather than by reading about something in a book, or applying theory. For this reason, they are not likely to be found in fields which require a lot of conceptual analysis or theory. They value practical application. Traditional methods of higher education, which require a lot of theorizing and abstraction, are likely to be a chore for them.
These people love a sense of community. They are very protective of their family and friends, and do not take real or perceived threats well. Any kind of family rifts affect them deeply, as their highest priority is often to keep the family close, strong, and healthy. People who fall under this personality combo will have long lasting relationships with their family and friends, meaning that they rarely fall out of step with people, or lose relationships. If they are ignored or left to feel unappreciated, they will feel very hurt. Breakups and divorce are not just painful emotional losses, but also serious blows to their ego. The deep emotional impact a breakup can cause a Defender/Leo is therefore twofold - they take it as a personal failure above all. Most of them will do everything they can to avoid that outcome.
They love beautiful things and will see your relationship as a beautiful thing too. They see beauty in life and their excitement is contagious. Honest and hard working, Defender/Leos usually make wonderful life partners and wonderful parents. Being true to them and showering them with honest love and intentions will make your Defender/Leo bond to you for life. Once that trust is established, expect to be pampered!. Their dignity and integrity is front and center in the way they treat their partners. Though sometimes known for jealousy and possessiveness, this is primarily due to any insecurity they feel at the hands of their partner. But, if they feel secure in your loyalty and devotion they will reciprocate with fierce loyalty and devotion. The key with a Defender/Leo in love is honesty, they tend to value this trait very much.
Craving fun and excitement as they do, they know that life is short and that we must seize the moment before it passes us by. they live extremely active lives, boldly pursuing many hobbies and undertaking many exciting projects. They’re also spontaneous enough to leap at chances for new experiences whenever they might appear. They will not sacrifice their principles for anything, and they have little tolerance for cheaters, liars or hypocrites.
