    ISFJ here but I'm curious whether ISTJs find it amusing to watch people break small social norms and the various reactions that result from such event. What would you honestly be thinking if you saw someone start stripping?

    By 'social rules', do you mean like don't commit murder or something? Because if it's a rule like that, then I'm all for it. I want to see what the distinction is between social rules and social norms before I can fully answer these questions.

    If I have to act in front of people that matter towards my job or something important, then I'm gonna be polite and have certain manners.

    If it was an attractive woman, I would like her to continue. Otherwise, I would just leave the area.

    Thanks for the responses so far. I've tried to define what I mean by social norms vs rules... harder than I thought it would be!

    If you break a social norm, you're just a strange eccentric character or someone who marches to the beat of their own drum. But if you break something that's a social rule instead, you get punished in some way (usually because you've offended someone).

    An example of an unwritten social rule is a requirement that you travel across the country to attend the wedding of a distant cousin that you don't have any particular feelings for, but your grandmother would be offended if you didn't go (and punish you by withholding cookies or something similar).

    Does that give you some sort of indication?

    I'm also fascinated by the random stripping discussion, so pls continue.
