    Call them up and then hang up as soon as they answer. Then later in person act like nothing happened. They will then bring it up. Your feedback is that you needed an answer to something they are experianced in. But then you figured out an alternative solution because they weren't answering. They will then ask what the problem was. You respond by saying it's done for now so no worries.
    everyone uses every function about evenly. take NE for example. if there are those who don't use it much, then why are there such massive amounts of people constantly flowing through Wallmart with 20 items or less?

    Tell them that you returned "that thing I needed from ya" back into their garage/house, but never tell them what it was.

    Granted, I don't think I've ever had anyone say the above to me, but if they did, I'd likely smirk; because clearly, this person would have no idea what they're talking about. Also, someone that assumes that much would never make it to the "inner circle" -- the place where all notions and mis/preconceptions about ISTJs are blown away! (yes, it is not just mythical...the inner circle does exist, and entry is based on a very selective application process)
    Hmm I understand...and will add that SJs can be figured out in short order, with general appreciation for their likely behaviours given different scenarios across value structures. Sorry..but it's very relevant

    Oh yes, I agree that it is relevant, and I will fully admit that I am very much a creature of habit in the external ways in which I live my life. I'm just saying, just because you know my external patterns does not mean in any way that you know me and my thought processes...that takes a lot of time and a lot of trust. I personally think that ISTJs are masterful self-monitors and can negotiate their identities, positions, and actions according to their surroundings. I don't mean to say that we have multiple personalities or are hypocrites, but it does mean that I selectively choose what I want to show people. Plus, with ISTJs being cooler and more even-keeled it means that the very excited, enthusiastic, and opinionated side of myself usually stays hidden unless I am around those I love and trust.

    Personally, no, but I do think that on some level that is what the phrase implies.

    Leave your wet towels on the bed, and do not pick them up, your resident SJ will eventually crack up at your untidyness.

    Grab an assortment of things and stray them around the floor.

    Rearrange their books in a random order.

    ISTJ's have no personality, You're just walking automatons with hard-drives for brains, using information receptors called "proper".

Our horses are swift, our arrows sharp, our swords like thunderbolts, our hearts as hard as the mountains, our soldiers as numerous as the sand. Fortresses will not detain us, nor arms stop us. Your prayers to God will not avail against us. We are not moved by tears nor touched by lamentations."

    *This ISTJ looks around her bedroom*

    Wet towel on bed, drying, because there's nowhere else for it - check

    books strewn around the room in any conceivable place possible (I'm a student, what do you expect?) - check

    Piles of notes placed precariously on desk - check

    Messiest bedroom in the entire flat - check (although admittedly my ESTJ neighbour's room is possibly the tidiest...)


    I must admit that when I'm particularly stressed out with work I do go into what I call my 'robot mode'. Until I have a sufficient level of control over my work everything else is pushed aside, including emotions. It's mainly down to tiredness.

    Agree in every way, as I usually do when it comes to your posts.

    Question

    I'm just saying, just because you know my external patterns does not mean in any way that you know me and my thought processes...that takes a lot of time and a lot of trust. I personally think that ISTJs are masterful self-monitors and can negotiate their identities, positions, and actions according to their surroundings. I don't mean to say that we have multiple personalities or are hypocrites, but it does mean that I selectively choose what I want to show people.

    YOu know you have a point here. We intuitives drive deeply into theory and abstract thought, but I don't see us as great players of politics and other ventures. Don't know about all , but I hate engaging in office politics and would rather be upfront and direct. BUt, of course, most people can't handle direct and honest in the objective way I usually can. However, I have seen sensors types handle interpersonal interactions in a huge continum, from very bad to very good. I don't selectively choose, but that can certainly be detrimental to my position and to be perfectly honest, I don't want to make it any harder on myself, but with my approach, it can happen.

    The question I have is this..I gather the truest, honest and most real people around me very quickly. They are drawn to me a lot, however I just can't seem to care enough about changing my identity or position, even when it would be beneficial to me. I have learned to squelch the verbal to a very real degree, but I find myself wishing I could wear a better mask at times.

    In this regard you guys really have an advantage and I have to admit that I fail to come across as believable if I really don't care. Conventional doesn't suit me, but it is part of life. Do you ever have any trouble with bending too much? Does it ever cause you grief? Is it more important that you give the proper impression than gather honest followers? I just have so much trouble being around people that I consider false and liars, yet I know full well that life demands that at times.
