    Default ISTJs suck (warning, rant alert)

    Why is it that they suck so bad? I know they sculpture society and whatnot but I wish they wouldn't. I wish there were an island full of NF people only. Maybe some ENTPs and INTPs would be allowed, and a couple of xSFJs (preferably I but Es are okay I guess) but only a few, because too many will seem like too much fun for my introvertedness to handle. Let the ISTJs have the rest of the world, I don't care. We can put a powerful, nuclear resistant force field across the NF Island and only those of NF can pass through and the xNTP, xSFJ people can pass through on Saturdays or something. It is really important that the force field is nuclear resistant because I don't want the ISTJs to make a false assumption about our world and spell it off as a fact that meets their way of seeing how it "really is". In which case, they would find some "logic" in sending a nuke out to blow us up. But the joke is on them because the force field also resists nuclear fall out.
    Anway, I only have met one ISTJ that I liked and I swear she's an ISFJ or even ISFP but she insists she's ISTJ based on her tests. The other one's I know really blow. They are just nasty people and seem to expect that their ugliness is justified one way or another. The world is theirs unfortunately, at least in their eyes seemingly. They are one-sided, VERY hypocritical, and go against everything my inner core values deem as humanity.
    I read about them and it seems their intentions are good. Well, not really. They intend to do what's best for people but they do it in a way that they proclaim as the "proper" and "structured" way which seems to suite them better than those they intend to do good on. No thanks. Just Fuck off, PLEASE! Please keep your FALSE assumptions to yourself and quit making life miserable for everyone around you. And please quit with (sorry I had to include a hi smiley because my girlfriend's little boy just came over and said "lalalalalala please put in a "hi smiley". He's such an ENTP). Where was I? Oh yeah, please quit with your rigid rules. Why do kids have to wear uniforms to public schools? It's stupid. What happened to individuality? If people are upset with your style, that's their fault. But nooooo, little kids have to march around like good little soldiers and I blame ISTJs. Fuck them, man.
    I do admire that they do generally seem creative in one way or another, although it's useless to them other than as a fleeting hobby until they turn about 25 when they have to put such childish notions as creativity behind them (sarcasm).

    Anyway, I'm finished. I know I'm not perfect and I know that I shouldn't put all ISTJs and my frustrated opinion of them in a single pot (I will anyway). I also know that it's unrealistic to have a single world of NFs and friends with a force field. Maybe if we die, "heaven" will be what dreams are made of. Hell will be a world of ISTJs and in that case, I'm already there. I expect I'll have a lot of disagreement and little or no replies, but I feel better now and if you made it this far, thanks for reading and peace to you.

    And how many ISTJs have you actually met and gotten to know really, really well? Maybe it really is them, but what if the problem lies on you? What have you done to make things better?

    Well, at least you feel better now.

    I really like ISTJs. They are a bit hesitant; but otherwise they rock.

    I work with an ISTJ and an INTJ two days a week. I feel more privileged to work with the INTJ for various reasons, and I feel sorry for the fact that he has to work side by side with an ISTJ most of the time.

    Or MAYBE its this particular ISTJ. I can't really generalize and I know everybody is different. But the ISTJ in question is or can be rather horrible to deal with in a more subtle, passive-aggressive yet mind-destroyingly fashion than an ESTJ. For one example of many, one day the ISTJ asked me what he could be doing differently on the job in order to improve. I thought for a minute and said to do things the way your partner (INTJ) is doing them. (He has years more experience and is superior in knowledge, after all.) After about a minute of total silence, his INTJ partner turned to him and said, "You're not going to pick on me for the rest of the day now, are you?"

    I wrote this knowing that I would possibly come off as a douche bag or whatever but I am just spilling over emotionally do to the black aura of the ISTJ people that have some form of direct involvement in my life. I understand completely that everyone is an individual and that not everyone is this way. I mean we are on a personality typing site and everyone pigeon holes types to a degree, so I do so in a not-so-positive but mildly true manner this ONE time. It's usually positive toward others I would think and my frustration lies with the ones that are in involved in my life, but still, the aspects that clash are still associated with the ISTJ personality type in general according to everything I've read.
    I'm basically ranting like I said, spilling over emotionally without a regard to anything other than how I feel about it right now. I do feel a little better. To be more specific, the ISTJs I've had contact with always think that they are all powerful and that everyone else is an idiot or moron, and they will let you know whether you asked them or not. I can't stand that. I have my own problems I know. What I have done to try and make things better is to avoid them when I can, a live and let live approach if you will. Just don't tread on me is all I ask in return.

    Pitseleh, I posted here because I'm INFP and I understand that ISTJ and INFP are a predatory/prey type of relationship. Also, because I would like some company in my Island of NF.

    All ISTJs suck because you have an issue with those you've met, right.

    We have a presumption of motivation without understanding them, okay.

    ... as long as you know you're ranting crap... I guess.

    Personally I butt heads with ISTJs more often than not but I'm not so arrogant to think the issue is them.

    the istjs in my life frustrate the hell out of me too but as long as they have no power or control in my life in any way...i'm sure we'd be pretty good friends. it's just hard for some xnfp people to have an istj boss or some other strong influence....we are just very live and let live and they seem to think everyone isn't following the manual and is a complete moron because of it....that could very well just be how we perceive it tho due to fi or somethin.
