    To be fair I knew a lot of neurotic and 'depressed' girls when I was at school. I think it's just a teenage girl thing and they'll probably grow out of it.

    Tis true. However, for some reason I have found more of them to be ISTJs in my experience. Much more so than any of the other types. Let's face it, ISTJs according to some online sites are characterized sometimes (annoyingly) by having depression, suicidal thoughts, etc.

    Now regardless of how true that is or not I can see how an ISTJs thinking would deteriorate to that point. We tend to be critical of ourselves. We are strictly "just the facts" and tend to not rely on other peoples impressions or opinions of situations and just look upon our own. Often times we hold ourselves to to high a standard.

    I have a saying; "If I've done it, it's not excellent, it's average."
    Maybe the depressed ISTJs take this to the next level DOWN. Most likely they let their normal thinking deteriorate so much that they are overly critical of themselves. Maybe it's because girls typically (and I stress that word) are more emotional than guys. Maybe not.

    And being a female, it's really flattering that you guys like us but a little unexpected coming from the supposed calm, cool, and reserved STJ.

    I didn't mean for this to be an attack on ISTJs. I just like to tease sometimes.
    Woo hooo ISTJs are cute...puzzling!...but cute...

    Maybe, but you've got to put down your guns first.

    Yes. Girls (and guys) from all types act that way.

    And why are we so "puzzling" to you LL? Just more evidence that you are not an S!

    I agree with Eagle on the depression thing. We do tend to hold ourselves to high standards and critisize ourselves when we mess up- even if it's not that big a deal!

    This is so very true. It's a very common way of thinking for us.
    I have to constantly force myself to let go in certain experiences. As well as try to ignore my own perception and focus on others positive perceptions. I use mine as a benchmark for improvement and others as an encouragement. Otherwise the people I lead would find my really depressing.

    My hubby is INTJ - puzzling, but not quite *as* puzzling. Similar enough to have commonality; different enough to be interesting.

    Indeed, I use this philosophy all the time as a teacher. There are days that are just complete failures in my book (like today). I have everything perfectly worked out and sequenced in my head, but somewhere along the line that perfect plan goes terribly wrong. I can analyze and scrutinize it all I want to figure out what went wrong, but sometimes, you just have to chalk it up to the fact that "crap happens" and we'll try again tomorrow...which is not my natural reaction, but is necessary if one wants to keep their sanity.
