    Default Which are your flaws ?

    This forum is full of "SJs this, SJs that" posts, so am wondering about one thing.

    Which are your flaws ?


    I am interested in how SJs see their flaws and how entire thing looks like from their perspective.

    Also I am aware that SJs are quite wide group so I will ask for personal opinions about personal flaws.

    Sometimes I can be a little too perfect.

    I think it's a good question, Antisocial One, and it deserves to be asked.

    The real problem with answering, for me, is that I'm always on the lookout for my flaws so that I can cut them out (but sometimes I'm conflicted about their pros and cons, or realize I don't have the energy to fix them). It's hard to narrow the question down to selected areas because it's kind of a continuous process in everything I do. Not meaning to sound too serious...but then again, this isn't really a happy, smiley topic.

    There is probably a general list I can give, though, of things I'd like to improve about myself. Maybe later.

    Well, it's a day later, and I've tried to think of stuff but can't quite put everything into words, so I won't. I'd want you to see the whole thing instead of just a part of it.

    I'm aware of my flaws. I think about them often and how they could affect others.

    -I'm too shy towards people I actually want to know. I'm not afraid to speak up in front of a class, but I get rather anxious when trying to talk one on one with someone.

    -I think I project my expectations of myself upon others too often, which can cause much disappointment

    -I'm not spontaneous enough, although people being spontaneous towards me can be pretty irritating...

    -I often come across as robotic in that I generally don't exhibit grand expressions of excitement or sadness

    -I'm too wordy. It can be appropriate for business situations, but when I get too wordy in personal conversations, people perceive it as rather strange.

    -I seem to get obsessive when enamoured with someone, which is definitely the last thing I want to be. Who would want to hook up with a stalker? I certainly wouldn't.

    - Sometimes my bluntness can be tactless when I don't really think about what's coming out of my mouth.

    - I can be too self-conscious and shy around others when I know I shouldn't be bothered by what other people think about me.

    - I can be a stubborn know-it-all sometimes.

    - Like Just_another_istj said, I project my high standards on to others...which isn't really fair to them.

    - When in a fight, I always want the last word.

    - I complain too much...but when I complain I just do it in a sarcastic/funny tirade-sort-of-way that really isn't meant to be taken seriously by those around me. It's just a way for me to let off some steam. However, most take it seriously and probably get annoyed with me.

    - I am a serious procrastinator, but I don't really see this as a flaw so long as the work gets done to the quality expected. I just work better under stress...I'm much more productive that way.

    - I rarely seek out adventure in my life...that's what my extrovert friends are for. I should be more adventurous and spontaneous on my own.

    -Very Shy

    -Terrible with the ladies (at least when it comes to getting a date)

    -Procrastinator (When it comes to things I don't like)

    -Potential to be Stubborn

    -Tendency to go into ISTJ Chaos mode (temporary loss of rationality) if
    certain things bother me/distract me from my list of priorities.

    -Usually need (tested-to-work) DETAILED instructions/procedures on how to do something

    -Linear thinking.

    -I can also be blunt at times, though I try to keep it under control. But seriously, sometimes the truth hurts, get over it!

    -And I use too many emoticons for an ISTJ.

    I'm sure there are more minor ones but I cannot think of them now. I don't even know if they are related to the ISTJ type anyway, could just be me. You should make a thread about our pro's now! Your making us look bad!

    Yes. Too many emoticons. You are such an ISFJ. Go be one with the Pebbles girl over there. You'll get along great. I only do a lot of emoticons if I get in an emoticon mood.

    My flaws, though?

    I think way more than I talk. If I start trying to force myself to talk instead of thinking before I speak, I come across as incredibly blunt and inconsiderate. It's like trying to mock an ESTJ.

    I need detailed instruction how to do stuff.

    I have little patience for people who don't understand something that I do.

    I hate it when things happen too fast that I can't process them.

    I hate it when things are happening so slowly and I don't know exactly what to expect.

    I'm nearly incapable of acting on impulse.

    I have little patience for small talk.

    I get bored listening to other people venting.
