    Well, actually, 'being ISTJ' is not a type.

    I love my ISTJ buddies! Having 700 FB friends and drinking every night is NOT cool! I laugh at people with that many friends. Rarely are they truly friends with them. To me, it just shows an overwhelming need for validation and the (failed) appearance of being cool. Drinking all the time might be fun in a phaze, but there is nothing cool about being dependent, needing something to feel okay or social, and poisening your body. True, my ISTJ friends have a limited number of FB friends.. they could easily have 700 if they valued quantity of quality. Anyone could. I think you are being too hard on yourself. ISTJ are great in soooo many ways. THey are dependable. THey keep it real. They rarely lie, cheat, etc. They are hard workers. They don't BLOVIATE about achievements, connections, or themselves.. They tend to have a good sense of self and direction. I wonder how old you are.. don't mistake some of the painful growing traits for all types as just you being bad. Many types don't know what they want to be. I'm 30 and I still ask myself what I will do when I grow up =D No, I'm telling ya.. there is MUCH worse things to be than ISTJ. Work on being a little more open with people, work on not thinking everyone that talks to you wants to be your girlfriend, work on figuring out what career is going to make you HAPPY. You'll be fine.

    It is a lapse in logic, not in language. English is not my first language either, by the way.

    You did get the gist of what he was saying though.

    So why is it necessary to put him down?

    The ''problems'' you listed for ISTJs apply to most Introverts. You just need some self confidence and things are gonna get better. I'm sure there are a lot of things you are good at, but you won't get anywhere focusing only on the bad things - which aren't really bad things, by the way.
    Being Introvert has many advantages. Check those threads:

    Also, when you treat a girl like a friend for too long, you tend to get friend-zoned. You are not alone on that, I think a lot of people here have been in this situation. If you have romantic interests for a girl, you can't keep hiding this fact for too long, you gotta take risks.

    I did not put him down, I made him aware of a mistake - one that, thanks to me, he may avoid in the future.

    Are you opposed to learning?

    You did put him down when you mentioned both that the error was in logic and not in language, and when you said that English wasn't your first language either.

    Maybe he hasn't been speaking that long?

    His circumstances are not yours and to assume otherwise is (in my most humble of opinions) a far graver error than his minor grammar mix up.

    Why not PM him about the mix up in grammar as opposed to highlighting his trivial mistake publicly?

    The result would be the same.

    Are you opposed to congeniality?

    I mean the guy hasn't even been here that long. Getting publicly dragged through the mud over something so trivial may leave a sour taste in his mouth concerning typoc, and disincline him from staying.

    I think any one of the things I've mentioned is more important than your desire to be right.

    Either way this is derailing the thread so I'll leave it here.

    Whether or not I put him down depends on either my intention or your perception. I did not intend to put him down; so if you believe that I did put him down, it is your way of looking at it that put him down. In other words: He was put down not by what I put into the words but by what you read out of them.

    Likely. But how is that relevant?

    I did not assume anything about his circumstances. What are you talking about?

    I thought it funnier this way.

    I was not trying to be mean, to put him down or - how absurdly exaggerated - to drag him through the mud. You may not believe me, but that is your problem.
