    You could be on to something here...perhaps our belief systems and values are not as fluid as the other types. I mean, the SJs apparently get the label of "rigid" anyway. Usually when I do post I already have an opinion in place. People are welcome to debate it, but at the end of the day it's unlikely that I will change my position (not impossible, but also not probable). I like a good debate, but I find them exhausting. I come to the forum to escape the real world. The last thing I wanna do is debate about serious topics...my real life is serious enough.

    What I find funny is that the other types will sometimes jump to the conclusion that my decision/belief was made based on following someone/something and without taking into careful consideration why I believe it...which is not even close. Every one of my beliefs I have examined and reexamined...we are the inspectors for crying out loud! We thrive on picking things apart and analyzing every detail. There is always rationalization behind my decisions. Just because another person doesn't agree does not invalidate my POV...and you're right, Eiddy, it doesn't ruffle my feathers to have someone disagree with me. Personally, I don't like conflict, so I'd likely just walk away saying "to each their own."

    It's a combination of the fact that there aren't as many SJs as other types on here, and that the SJ attitude is more matter-of-fact and less debate-oriented than say... the NTs or NFs.

    I can identify with you so completely. I come here to escape the real world. I love making friends and I just don't have the time or energy to have a conflict with someone.. I will just ignore it or claim ignorance. LOL

    Analyzing every detail. I have always loved doing that. Looking at leaves and putting ants on them to float down a stream or looking at the tiny forest to be found in a tiny area of grass, interests me.

    I know that I am not the person with a problem when others tend to disagree.. I am an ISFJ who can disagree with a person that is on your side to begin with in the first place. hahaha

    I take it that others are just having a day (life) or whatever and figure if they knew me better than they really shouldn't take offense.. I can't function enough on the things I need to take care of, much less giving more energy to maintain a conflict just for the sake of conflict..

    I'm going back to play a game in arcade.. Call me if there is an emergency. LOL

    lots of hugs to you Recoleta..

    All you gotta do is go here - Interactive Johari Window - take the test online (and here: The Nohari Window - Personality Flaw Map) and follow the instructions at the top and bottom.

    hahaha yes I have been there, but I don't know you well enough to give an accurate assessment of your personality. Judging from other ISTJ's that I have had in class, they were the best students from the boys. We seemed to get along great..

    Now you oh so smarty pants how can I get one to have others assess me??? LOL

    Yeah... sometimes I don't check this forum for a few days and then when I finally do, sometimes there's hardly been any new posts.

    Plus, we're likely the most-hated group on the forum and people think they know "all they need to know" about us since we are so prevalent in the real world, so they don't bother to come and ask questions. Of the few times others ask questions, it is usually asking for dating advice or something.
    I'm pretty damn busy irl, but I multi task well. And I don't handle down time well. If I am waiting for something, it's very easy for me to respond to a post.

    I don't hate you guys. It's really more that I don't understand you guys. Which is why I ask questions (I remember a particular thread about always getting the 3rd degree...)

    Our (or at least my) feathers don't ruffle so easily at all. And I don't feel like we criticize each other. I come here to gain understanding. I do this through asking questions about a variety of different topics so I can get a clear picture about a person or a type. I find SJs often just ask the question they are interested in hearing the answer to, so the threads don't move as quickly. I was always taught that if you really want to know a person, never ask a question that can be answered with a yes or no.

    I rarely come to a decision, but when I do it's based on careful thought and I cannot be swayed. But I'm still interested in why others hold the opinions that they hold, especially when it seems so clear to me that it should be a different way. It's not conflict, it's curiosity.

    I get on here to get out of the real world, too. So I answer topics (generally) about what interests me.

    What things would you rather discuss? You should just start posting threads about that stuff...
