    It seems like the biggest fans of ISTJs are INTJs. I doubt that this will increase the popularity of ISTJs among people of other types.

    I like having ISTJs on my project team because they can be trusted to be detailed and exact in their work. They also are good planners for catastrophe -- they can tell everything that might go eventually wrong with a plan, and they hate leaving things to chance.

    But as far as interpersonals go, I have trouble spending prolonged periods of time with them because they are just very straight-forward and not as prone to play, and I try to avoid controversial topics. The less J an ISTJ has, the more I enjoy their company.

To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    I have an ISTJ brother in law.
    He's a pharmacist.
    He's dependable, generous, good with his kids, likes to cook fancier dishes, helps clean house, likes antiques, likes to watch sports, quiet.

    I have an ISTJ mother.
    She's generous, hard-working, loves antiques, LOVES old books, reads encyclopedias recreationally, smartest woman I know.
    She's really excellent with her hands. When she learned how to quilt, she liked to tell people how she learned so much faster than anyone else in her class, and how her work was so much better than everyone else's. She likes her work to be excellent quality.

    Despite how INTPs are characterized.

    I think, ISTJ is the most common type of engineering PHD.

    In other words, they are also common among the world's eggheads, and that is a positive in my opinion.

    Accept the past. Live for the present. Look forward to the future.

    They are pretty similar.

    INTJ come up w/ the ideas; ISTJs support carry it out w/o questioning.

    You can always trust a ISTJ to not 'go against' the plan and even when they do, they always straight out tell you why they think it is wrong instead of going behind your back.

    Word of advice; most important things to an ISTJ are peace, security, and void of interference with their personal lives. If you attempt to tamper w/ any of the listed, they will back stab you.

    ISTJ's also seem to be the harder nut to crack when it comes to sharing personal feelings etc.
    I may avoid and have no desire to share with anyone except whom I choose however if I am close to someone I can open up and share...ISTJ's, even if close to someone seem to share far less.

    I find many similarities in the day to day operations of ISTJs and INTJs. There are some fundamental differences of course.

    They are similar in the way ISTPs and INTPs can be hard to distinguish initially.

    N/S is the percieving function, so it can be hard to tell sometimes.
