ISTJ Personality – Conclusion

Few personality types are as practical and dedicated as ISTJs. Known for their reliability and hard work, ISTJs are good at creating and maintaining a secure and stable environment for themselves and their loved ones. ISTJs’ dedication is invaluable in many areas, including their own personal growth.

Yet ISTJs can be easily tripped up in areas where their practical and methodical approach are more of a liability than an asset. Whether it is finding (or keeping) a partner, learning to relax or improvise, reaching dazzling heights on the career ladder, or managing their workload, ISTJs need to put in a conscious effort to develop their weaker traits and additional skills.

What you have read so far is just an introduction into the complex concept that is the ISTJ personality type. You may have muttered to yourself, "wow, this is so accurate it’s a little creepy" or "finally, someone understands me!" You may have even asked "how do they know more about me than the people I’m closest to?"

This is not a trick. You felt understood because you were. We’ve studied how ISTJs think and what they need to reach their full potential. And no, we did not spy on you – many of the challenges you’ve faced and will face in the future have been overcome by other ISTJs. You simply need to learn how they succeeded.

But in order to do that, you need to have a plan, a personal roadmap. The best car in the world will not take you to the right place if you do not know where you want to go. We have told you how ISTJs tend to behave in certain circumstances and what their key strengths and weaknesses are. Now we need to go much deeper into your personality type and answer "why?", "how?" and "what if?"

This knowledge is only the beginning of a lifelong journey. Are you ready to learn why ISTJs act in the way they do? What motivates and inspires you? What you are afraid of and what you secretly dream about? How you can unlock your true, exceptional potential?

Only difference I find is I sometimes let the punctuality slip. Yet I still stress about it so I assume that I want to be puctual, there just might be too much to handle.

Its odd. The only difference I have seemed to find is that I am flexible to opinions as I do not want to be seen as self obsessed, and I have to pay close attention to the way people respond to things for experience. You see, my brother is a narcissist. Okay, I act normal with this one friend I have that I have known since 1st grade which I am okay with at times. I too am torn between my future jobs because I am good at art (according to every living soul..) But I like adventures ...

For those considering a STEM career: 1) True INTJs for science. 2) ISTJs for engineering. 3) Hardcore ISTJs for 3 areas: electrical, mechanical, civil. US Army denotes these as the 'realistic' areas, with the other eng. fields as more abstract.

the point the article made about sensitivity to emotions only to get our point across.... I laughed out loud because that is completely how I rationalized it so that I will be more sensitive at home and at work.
