    Yes, at work if you give me instructions, I will follow them. I'm willing to do it, if you would just be specific about what IT is. This was probably the biggest problem I ran into back when I had a job.

    Also, I agree in general with Raz that it helps to know I'm doing tasks the right way, that whatever I'm doing is working. In that sense, the feedback matters, not too much for emotional support, but to know that my effort is giving the best result.

    Sometimes, I got the chance to work alone. That was fine. I liked it.

    But I tell you what--I didn't make a lot of friends at work (was only there for a few months). The few I did talked to me even though I didn't say much back. I guess they didn't mind... Joking around and telling stories about stuff we've done was on-the-job chatter that settled us into familiarity. Though it's true that my job didn't require a lot of thinking, so for an office job I would probably need a lot more quiet time. I need some quiet to think, when I'm working on something.

    No, it seems like Erinavery's routine would mostly work. We probably wouldn't become friends, but we would get work finished.

    I quoted both posts for a reason. My Point was that you have to pay attention to details and concentrate around ISTJ.
    But she did not pay much attention to what original request actually says.

    What ISTJ think about that kind of approach to things?


    That was my question. I guess I hide it too well

    Yes, From what I know ISTJ really do not like when people say things before they think things through.
    They will probably not going to tell you that in your face but I think that this can be quite annoying to them.
    While ENFP can't think without talking in some cases.


    I have nothng against you. It is just that you made a good example, if you ask me.

    Please give me an advice how do I need to be so I can get along the best with an ISTJ at work? I mean the way of communication, for example.

Does ISTJ appreciate if I ask lots of questions and if I take his sayings into consideration when making decisions?



    + many more things but I cannot put them all down the organized way right now, so I'll save you from more of my confusing thoughts!



    I think this ISTJ finds me extremely confusing, too fast moving and too brainstormy personality. I'll do my best to get along with him (and it's ok currently) but please help me so I'll manage the situation!



    Is there a problem or is it just in your head? You say "it's currently ok". So just be yourself. ENFPs and ISTJs have natural chemistry. I think the problem could be that you are freaked out by his robotishness. You don't see him smile so you're thinking, oh shit, what did I do? Why is he mad at me? In reality he is probably thinking .

    ^ Sounds right on.

    If there is a problem, I would do different things depending on if he is the boss or not. First, I always have wanted to be friendly/friends with the people I work with. Some of the people I could only be friendly with, but I definitely do like to get along and joke. When I have been in charge of others, I would like them to listen to what I say and not require tons of handholding. I don't mind people who talk a lot or are quick, but you do need to be able to focus on things as necessary.

    Oops, it posted before I was ready!

    Anyway, for equal coworkers I simply appreciate it if they show up on time and are not whiners/lazy/mean to people/dramatic. I'm pretty low maintenance - if a person every now and then does or says a little thing that shows they were thinking about me personally it makes me happy.

    With bosses, I like to hear that they notice and appreciate my hard work, and I enjoy being given a say in decisions/policies.

    I actually like chatty people because it takes a lot of the conversational burden off me. The exception is if it is whining/lazy/mean gossip/drama, or in other ways indiscretionary and unprofessional. And yes, I get along GREAT with most of the ENFPs I know. One girl I refer to as "the puppy" (in a totally nice way). Every now and then she'll come running up behind someone and hug them without giving warning. She is boisterous and very friendly. My sister is an ENFP and are pretty much best friends.
