    I wonder if that would reflect on the forums, as in in-writing.

    You could also just ask the INTJs about your own behavior, in the same way that you just did with me and your ESTJ friend.
    That's what I was thinking. Hopefully the thread won't be last-updated-2009.

    Other than the obvious, in what ways do you think ESTJ's differ from ISTJ's? Especially when confronting emotional people

    Reading. Whitewater rafting is pretty awesome. I recently started cycling again. Almost anything to do with railroading. I'd love to work on steam locomotives if I had the chance. I can't think of any compelling reasons why.

    What do you like to read? Those sound like fun things to do. Why railroading?

    Generally: I think ISTJs are less goofy. ESTJs have a bit of a silly switch when they're feeling particularly confident/comfortable in a situation -- whereas I've found that even when they're in a good mood, ISTJs are more deadpan. (I attribute this to Ne being less prominent in ISTJs.) Also, due to Te, ESTJs are a lot more likely to meddle in other people's business, and a lot more likely to act immediately to resolve things that are bugging them. ISTJs have less of a tolerance for that, and are therefore more independent, and also more likely to sit and feel hopeless in the midst of crisis mode, instead of getting mad enough to act, like ESTJs would.

    When confronting emotional people... what do you mean by "confronting", and what do you mean by "emotional"? Do you mean angry people, upset people, sad people? People who need to be confronted as in calmed down, or shut down?

    I'm not sure exactly. I grew up around trains and I've been interested in mechanical stuff ever since I was little.

    Puppies: They're cute
    Kittens: ALL OF THE FEELS I LOVE KITTENS. I just love them, and I want them, and I want them in a basket, and I want little bow ties, and I want them to be on a rainbow!!!

    My dad's a 3w4 sp/so ESTJ who has been suffering from severe depression and ill health because he's over-worked himself to a near death state. Any tips on how do I get him to slow down and not be such a workaholic. Currently, he works 18 hours a day and he's over 65.

    He said he'll slow down when I have a job and a settled life ... well, he doesn't ... I've been settled for quite some time and he has no "obligations" left ... but he just won't retire. Says that retiring is as good as stepping into the grave. However, I feel like he is decreasing his life-span with every passing day that he spends more than 18 hours working. Oh .. he's already at the top of his profession and one of the most successful and respected men in his field ... so that's not what he's working for .. or is he?

    How do I assure him that he doesn't need to slave away anymore ... we're all secure and able on our own.
