    Hmm... well, I don't know if this will help at all, or if it's even an ISTJ thing; but, alot of times, the main reason I don't share my thoughts is because I fear what people will think of them. I'm not sure if that's her problem or not. *shrugs*
    By the way, I'm the girl in the picture, lol.... happily married though, so don't even...

    That fact intrigues me. (seriously. lol)


    As in, you're not sure about how they'll perceive you as a person after sharing that? or you're worried that it will affect their interaction with you? or you're insecure around some types?

    Well, basically, you know how ISTJs get slightly picked on for talking about things that no one else finds interesting (or perhaps relates to)? Yeah, I guess you might could call it insecurity in my case. But, lilke I said, I don't know how much this pertains to other ISTJs.

    So it's that you don't want to bore others?

    I think ISTJs are fascinating (they're better one on one, though). Just find an INTJ

    I think the type of people that find other people boring are the ones that sit around waiting for others to entertain them as if the sun rises and sets on their ass.

    I only know one ISTJ well but the others I kinda know aren't bad. A little straitlaced and you have to do some cajoling to get them to try stuff they're unaccustomed to, but good, solid, reliable, and often underappreciated people.
    Relationships have normal ebbs and flows. They do not automatically get better and better when the participants learn more and more about each other. Instead, the participants have to work through the tensions of the relationship (the dialectic) while they learn and group themselves and a parties in a relationships. At times the relationships is very open and sharing. Other time, one or both parties to the relationship need their space, or have other concerns, and the relationship is less open. The theory posits that these cycles occur throughout the life of the relationship as the persons try to balance their needs for privacy and open relationship.

    Oh goodness...YES! I know I do that. It usually occurs when I am suffering through "small talk" conversations or if someone is talking my ear off about a topic that I either know nothing about or don't really care about. It's my way of trying to be polite on the outside (but on the inside I have an entire internal dialogue going on...and I'm kinda smiling at my own thoughts). :rolli: And no, you probably don't want to know what we're thinking. Don't take it personally though, it's just our (well, mine at least) way of amusement.

    Shit, I fell for it!

    That's ok. I still *blows nose* like ISTJs.

    Haha, jk. I encourage you to share your thoughts, Ransom.

    I'm a lot like that, myself. It's something I try all the time not to do. Life is so much more liberating when you can just put yourself out there without worrying about what other people think of you. Who needs people's positive opinions? Heck no.

    This is one of the biggest reasons my friend and I started hanging out; his awesomeness was partially derived form his weirdness.

    I accept no responsibility, what so ever, for the fact that I exist; I do, however, accept full responsibility for what I do while I exist.

    My ISTJ calls himself "Cliff Claven". He doesn't have a problem sharing his tidbits either. (oohhh that sounds naughty)
