So This Is What I Am.....

Click to view my Personality Profile page

I'm an ISTJ - Introverted (???), thinking, sensing, judging.

ISTJs are responsible, loyal and hard working. They have an acute sense of right and wrong and work hard at preserving established norms and traditions. Because of their deep sense of duty they are dedicated to everything they do and are very dependable. ISTJs care deeply for those closest to them.

Us ISTJs only make up 12% of the population, with a breakdown of 15.5% male, 8.5% female. Out of the 29 real and fictional ISTJs listed, only 6 were female. We also count Eeyore, Batman and Darth Vader among us. I'm beginning to be either really sad or really scared to be me. Maybe both.

Six presidents and Queen Elisabeth II were ISTJs. Good.

One of the presidents is GWB. Not so good.

Cliff Clavin is also a ISTJ. Somebody get me a drink, ok???

However, one of the characteristics of my Multiple Intelligence Profile is "enjoys journaling".

Can you say BLOG??? Blog, blog, blog, blog. Now that one was dead on!!!

A lot of this was really accurate, some of it not so much so. Go take a look and see where you fall. Come back and let me know, ok?

Tell me I'm not alone with George Bush and Eeyore. If so, I might have to start channeling my inner Darth.....

Darth Vader and Eeyore, huh? That's some odd company!

Jessica said...

I am an ESFJ. My company actually offers a full 2-day course on learning your type, its strengths and weaknesses, and the strengths and weaknesses of other types. It was the best 2-days of training I have ever had.

Rachel said...

Wow, my Myers-Briggs type is the opposite of yours. (I'm an ENFP.) It's interesting that all those people share your profile.

I went bananas when mine changed a little. I'm convinced the margin or error is at least 3%, so you might be exactly at the mid-point between E&I. Oh, my new one is ISFJ...and as I keep saying, I don't like that I'm a judgemental bitch now.

Rachel said...

I am an ESTP.

And so are Bart Simpson and Krusty the Clown.

M said...

Guess who else is an ISTJ? Yup. You got it baby. You, me, and Eeyore. Let's have a party (except my "I" Was freaking 95% lmao.)

ESTJs thrive on order and continuity. Being extraverted, their focus involves organization of people, which translates into supervision. While ENTJs enjoy organizing and mobilizing people according to their own theories and tactically based agendas, ESTJs are content to enforce "the rules," often dictated by tradition or handed down from a higher authority.
ESTJs are joiners. They seek out like-minded companions in clubs, civic groups, churches and other service organizations. The need for belonging is woven into the fiber of SJs. The family likewise is a central focus for ESTJs, and attendance at such events as weddings, funerals and family reunions is obligatory.
Tradition is important to the ESTJ. Holidays, birthdays and other annual celebrations are remembered and observed often religiously by this type. The ESTJ is inclined to seek out his roots, to trace the family heritage back to honored ancestors both for a sense of family respectability and for a sense of security and belonging.
Service, the tangible expression of responsibility, is another key focus for ESTJs. They love to provide and to receive good service. The ESTJ merchant who provides dependable service has done much to enhance her self image.
ESTJs have an acute sense for orthodoxy. Much of their evaluation of persons and activities reflects their strong sense of what is "normal" and what isn't. ESTJ humor is frequently centered around something or someone being off center or behaving abnormally.
ESTJs promote the work ethic. Power, position and prestige should be worked for and earned. Laziness is rarely viewed with ambivalence nor benevolence by this type.
The ESTJ is outspoken, a person of principles, which are readily expressed. The ESTJ is not afraid to stand up for what she believes is right even in the face of overwhelming odds. ESTJs are able to make the tough calls.

Simon Peter (Christ's disciple)

Rev. Billy Graham
