If I get annoyed by a person, I could do two things.. in given order.
1. Trying to minimize the contact with that person. I would still probably react politely, but wouldn't initiate a conversation or activity.
2. Say it out loud in frustration. This happens when I have used all my polite energy, and all that is left is my annoyment.
And now that I kept recalling my reactions to other people, I recalled what my friend said. When I get angry/annoyed, I become very impersonal... office-like person. I treat people as if I would be some sort of machine. I adjust my humor-level to zero, and maximize the "Just the facts"-level. Could be related to tertiary Fi-function (which according to some sources is the source of all things human).
So... if I give you short, accurate list as an answer, be aware for you have just faced my wrath.
EDIT: And if you want my bluntness, you must first be my friend. Only then I feel trustful enough to let you know what my SiTe-functions are really saying. And that's pretty darn blunt stuff, I'm telling you.
Amen to this all. Reflecting on my relationships the last few years, this is exactly me!
What I've noticed is what you guys said - the cold shoulder, the short terse response. But then there is also the vicious gossiping behind the backs, which I'm sure no one here will admit to, but I've seen it a million times. The direct, deliberate character assassination. http://www.typologycentral.com/forums/637118-post5.html
Haha yep, that's pretty much it exactly. Dealing with the person directly would solve the problem much more cleanly and efficiently but you can cause way more damage by avoiding them and just talking behind their backs.

Shut up, that's not funny. You're so damn irritating sometimes, ajblaise...
An ISTJ i know has "I don't want to be mean" personality factor, which can manifest itself through him being nice to people even when they are annoying him, so how would i know if i am annoying him?
Maybe i should wait for him to start conversations instead of initiating them myself?
Wait for him to approach me instead of the other way around?
I wish there was some way i make him brutally blunt over night :P
(has no idea if these are typical ISTJ characteristics)
Well, i get annoyed at many people. It could be because they interrupted my conversation with someone, talk excessively, something like that. but i'm still nice to everyone, even if i dont like them. not everyone can get along with each other, so we have to at least be polite right?
In conclusion, I wont show that im annoyed, but if they still talk to you, say hi once in a while, if they still ask you 'How's life?' and stuff like that then your safe
