    Wow, thanks for the responses. Helpful, interesting and useful.

    So prior experience is useful data to draw upon, but it's not the emphasis nor the goal...

    And in the case of ISTJs, projections into the future is useful data to consider, but again it's not the emphasis nor the goal?

    ISTJs spend a lot of time extrapolating what they know into the future, and I also think that it is important to them... but the thing to remember is that Si users seek information that is reliable, and the future is a place of uncertainty. In less healthy examples, this can lead to hostility towards change. Such a person will try to prevent things from changing, seeking a state of perpetual stasis. An unhealthy INTJ, by comparison, will seek some goal without regard to how much damage gets done along the way.

    A more healthy ISTJ simply wishes to see that everything gets done in the safest possible way. They will build upon what has existed before to bring about change in a gradual, controlled mannor.
