    E's think I am too quiet, boring, upset about something (if I just happen to be in a quiet type of mood) and/or angry about something (when I just sometimes don't want to talk, especially when I am feeling kind of tired or stressed because it just takes too much energy).

    S's think I am weird, have my head in the clouds, that I am stupid (like if I don't notice something in front of me or can't do something mechanical).

    T's think I am stupid because I am not uberlogical and because I do tend to "think" with my heart and intuition over my "head." T's are annoyed with me a lot (I think and feel) that I don't get things like math and that I like to explore and analyze literature or other open-ended subjects.

    P's think I am rigid, unforgiving, inflexible, not spontaneous and overly demanding.

    I don't know. When my buttons get pushed, I hold my tongue. On the other hand, my Dad (ENTJ) will immediately express his emotions, but so will my sister (INTP). I think it's more of a dominant thing, which may be separate from MBTI.

    I am almost always perceived as shy...which bugs me quite often. To me at least, there is a huge difference between being shy and being introverted. People don't scare me or make me nervous and I can talk to strangers without a problem. It is simply that when I am in a group I will hardly ever speak because I enjoy sitting back and listening to others talk. If I have something of value to add to the conversation I will speak up, but otherwise I would rather observe.

    People also probably think I'm a bit stuck up too because I am almost always exact and very detailed in the things that I say. However, similar to you INTJ's, I know what I know, and I know what I don't know. If I'm clueless on a subject I won't say anything or will simply admit that I know nothing about the topic. Generally I will only speak if I am confident in what I am saying.

    Lastly, people also expect me to be emotionless. I'm not a terribly warm or touchy-feely person, but I certainly have emotions...very strong ones sometimes, although I usually keep a cool outward demeanor. I've noticed that if I so happen to cry in front of someone...the other person will probably freak out because they expect me to be always be emotionally strong.

    Oh yeah, and one last thing. Just because I am an ISTJ does not mean I am anything like Sona. Hopefully no offense should be taken from that statement...because it is merely an observation. I just find it interesting that although we apparently share the same type I see almost no similarities between our view points or the things we think about (granted, I am only basing this statement on the relatively few posts I have read by him in the forums). So...ummm...yeah...

    As many others already mentioned, I find that people more extroverted and/or feelers than I, usually believe that:
    -I am shy/sad/lonely/unhappy/need help/need to find friends, boyfriend, etc.:
    I am none of that and if I ever felt the need to socialise more, I 'd probably try and do it.
    -I am snobbish/arrogant/close-minded. :
    that's what happens when they start to invite me in all sort of gatherings or activities in order to "help" me and I either decline most invitations or join them but leave the soonest possible. This also gives the opportunity to realise I am not shy at all. So they believe that I am snobbish, which I am not at all

    That ENTJ's are driving, insensitive, and snappish. Though, to be fair, I am most comfortable when I'm in that state.

    And that ENTJ's are all about themselves. Some do give that impression, yes. But ultimately, we'd rather run things than focus on ourselves.

    lol

    Ha. I noticed that very thing. Based on reading of the theory and such, you seem much more spot on for that type. I also have a dear aunt who is an ISTJ - rather strongly so. I'll accept Sona is an ISTJ since that's what he states, but he doesn't come off very close to the written descriptions imo. The deliberate stirring up of drama is not center line sensible. It's all rather prankstery and difficult from appearances to understand the 'why' of it. Both of those aspects don't seem textbook ISTJ.
