being concrete in speech and utilitarian in getting what they want,
the Composer Artisans
are informative and attentive in their social roles. Composers are
just as reluctant to direct others' behavior as are Performers,
though they appear even more so, since they are more attentive.
all the Artisans are artistic in nature, Composers (perhaps ten per
cent of the population) seem to excel in the "fine arts," having not
only a natural grace of movement, but also an innate sense what fits
and what doesn't fit in artistic compositions. Of course, composing
must not be thought of as only writing music, but as bringing into
harmonious form any aspect of the world of the five senses, and so
when an especially gifted painter, sculptor, choreographer, film maker,
songwriter, chef, decorator, or fashion designer shows up, he or she
is likely to be an iSfP.
like the other Artisans, have a special talent for "tactical" variation,
and such talent differs radically from that possessed by Idealists,
have their own unique and inherent abilities). As the word "tactical"
implies, Artisans keep closely in "touch" with the physical world,
their senses keenly tuned to reality.
while the Crafter is attuned to the tool and
its uses, the Composer is attuned to sensory variation in color, line,
texture, aroma, flavor, tone-seeing, touching, smelling, tasting,
and hearing in harmony. This extreme concreteness and sensuality seems
to come naturally to the iSfPs, as if embedded "in the warp and woof"
of their make.
