I know that ISTJ's are very law-abiding and generally follow the straight and narrow path. (Which I think can be a very good thing.)
My ISTJ also cares a lot about what others think of him (and what others think of anyone that he cares about). Even the opinions of total strangers matter to him (it seems) as well as friends, family and all others.
Is this more so with ISTJ's or is it just a general thing that isn't so type-specific? Could it be that ISTJ's want to be a sort of 'role model' for others and this is why they care about what others think?
Looking forward to your thoughts! Especially anyone who is an xSTJ or anyone involved with xSTJ's
