    When you put it that way, it sounds like society is evolving and the poor SJs are becoming obsolete. No wonder they hate the world for what it is becoming and wish for the "good ol days".

    Well, that's an intuitive leap What SJs in particular have a hard time with is the rate of change. In general, SJs will always wish for the "good ol days", but now there is a whole lot more changing, hence the drive to familiarity is that much stronger...

    (I hate to use "SJs" and such in this way, but just remember that most of you will be an S by the time you are 60... the whole looking back thing is not as simple as personality.)

    Is nostalgia an S trait?

    Good question, I don't know if it can be said that it is. Would it correlate against it more than other traits...? I would guess that it would slightly... The only part that I would split from that is that there should be a tendency for Ss to be more nostalgic against certain conventional norms, as opposed to individual experiences and such.

    I don't know how it influences memory recollection however.

    Well if I do end up as an S then I will thank God for the peace and quiet.

    Well, standard MBTI disclaimer - you'll test as an S, in theory you won't be Best of both worlds!
