    The very best movies I have ever seen are the ones where I don't know what's going to happen. I HATE predictable movies! I also hate implausible plots (except for vampire ones, apparently! HA!) or scenarios. I like to watch a movie that I can lose myself in. Movies are one of biggest ways I decompress. I really hate "chick" flicks! Give me something I have to figure out. Has anyone seen The Skeleton Key? If my mind is busy working out what's happening in the movie, it's not think about money or work or job or kids, etc. And I worry ALL the time!!
    Same here- I hate predictable plots. I think that's why I love Law and Order-> As predictable as the plots are, their endings are usually good. I mean they always have a suspect in the interrogation room, and in comes their lawyer with some clever line to save the day. Or they are always on time with that blue covered document to dismiss some key evidence. It's funny, but they manage to keep me watching.

    I like movies with classy soundtracks and stories that have a point. The meaninglessness of post-modern film and literature is the anti-SJ. Maybe even the anti-Christ.

    I'm not really sure what you mean by giving a "vibe." :confused: Are the answers others are giving you answering your question? I'll try to respond in a similar fashion giving preferences and the possible reason for those preferences.

As for the detail thing, my mom enjoys suspense movies for the same reason. I also notice that SJs love movies based on a true story.
    I absolutely love mysteries, detective stories, crime scene shows, etc. I enjoy Monk and CSI, and as a kid I loved reading books like The Westing Game, Nancy Drew/Hardy Boys, etc. However, the strange thing is that I very seldom look ahead in anything I'm reading/watching to see the possible outcomes. I am almost always totally absorbed in what is going on at that moment in the story that I don't consider what may happen. That actually makes me feel pretty stupid quite often, because in watching a movie there will be elements to a story that everyone else in a group predicts and I am left going, "Oh, didn't really see that coming." I like to speculate sometimes, but I have to actually stop a movie/put down a book to take the time to think things through.

    I also tend to be turned off by a lot of things that seem totally unrealistic. But at the same time, there are certain types of fantasy/theoretical plotlines that appeal to me very much. I absolutely love superhero movies/shows. I also love things about time travel. But stupid little details in a movie or show will drive me nuts. To illustrate what I mean, I'll share this quote from the Big Bang Theory. When my friend and I heard it, she said, "That is EXACTLY something you would say!" (referring to the bolded part below):

    Penny: You know, I do like the [Superman movie] where Lois Lane falls from the helicopter and Superman swooshes down and catches her. Which one was that?
    Leonard, Sheldon, Wolowitz: *One.* [Rajh holds up one finger]
    Sheldon: You know that scene was rife with scientific inaccuracy?
    Penny: Yes, I know men can't fly...
    Sheldon: No, no, let's assume that they can... Lois Lane is falling, accelerating at an initial rate of 32 feet per second per second... Superman swoops down to save her by reaching out two arms of steel... Miss Lane, who is now traveling at approximately 120 miles an hour, hits them and is immediately sliced into three equal pieces.

    That's exactly how I am. :rolli:

    As far as music, I like classical and instrumental music that is orderly. I like music that gives a cultural experience, so to speak (I have Scotch-Irish heritage and so Celtic music really appeals to me). I like whimsical music that gives a feeling of happiness. I really, really love music that takes themes of life and simplifies them...songs that make life seem wonderful and beautiful as they are without sugar-coating them or poeticizing them too much. I love songs that take simple reality and make it charming if that makes sense. And I also, for whatever reason, often enjoy very melancholy songs. I have a very hard time enjoying hard rock at all...to the frustration of my NT boyfriend.

    Most books that I read these days are for purpose rather than leisure. Usually informational books or self help books.

    As far as pictures/art are concerned, I like things that are what they are, so to speak. I don't get art that has to be analyzed to determine what it is or some kind of "meaning" in it. I am decorating my kitchen in coffee-shop type stuff. I have a bathroom with framed comic book covers (really it looks more classy than it sounds, I promise). Still working on the rest of the house but most of the art will be nature photography. I absolutely LOVE nature photography. The most beautiful things to me are what can be immediately seen with the eye if a person is in the right place at the right time. Everyday pleasures we take for granted are inspiring to me.

    I love Law and Order too (SVU is my favorite) and pretty much all courtroom dramas - I loved "The Practice" and I like "Raising the Bar." My huband makes fun of me because I LOVE Nancy Grace, but that must mean I do like some true stuff. I used to read True Crime books when I was way younger, but I got tired of them. I loved Six Feet Under when it was on! I love some of the "darker" shows like that. I'm not big into "mysteries"...especially series with the same detective or whatever...BORING. I love Stephen King. I've recently been reading John Lescroat and I like him.

    I just thought of something totally implausible that I do like - the shows Medium and Ghost Whisperer. Ghost Whisperer got a little predictable, but you never know what will happen on Medium...which is kind of cool.

    I LOVE movies and books! The library is my favorite place on earth!! As for music, I like a little of everything. Except maybe jazz and classical. Oh, and alternative. My weird INFP husband loves alternative. I don't look for symobolism in music though or anything of that nature.

    I however am a complete opposite. I couldn't care less what a normal life was for 40's women during the war, or how people fared in the 18th century.

    I like all things epic and dramatic. Heroic is the keyword for me! I want to see heroic sacrifices made for the good of community, and moral dilemma risen by two opposing yet equal forces (order vs freedom, rationality vs humanity, community vs individualism). And I also like strong audio-visual experiences (like The Fountain and Pan's Labyrinth).

    But these might be more of ISTJ vibes, than SJ vibes... it's hard to say what all SJ types would enjoy the most.

    But probably SJ vibes mean that the movie has to be well-structured and within norms. I hated Funny Games, as it was a weird movie. It didn't deliver what I had expected of an ordinary horror movie.
    My ISFJ mom is really into that kind of thing.

    It makes sense for general STJ and SFJ tastes to differ. I can especially see their humor being different. ISTJs can be biting and dry and sarcastic, and I find SFJs more cutesy.

    I really like detective stories (obviously) and war movies along with comedies like Seinfeld and Curb Your Enthusiasm. I also enjoy odd modern films like Oldboy and Trainspotting.

    I like any kind of suspense movie because they usually aren't boring. Comedy can be entertaining too (has to be the right comedy), not shit like those teen comedies. Horror is great too, but my favorite genre is suspense.

    Just mention something with vibe or ask them if they get vibes and if they look confused then you got an SJ.

    vibe concept is abstract and not physically sensed, they will be confused.

    The 'vibe' concept is abstract so therefore the definition of the word depends on your interpretation. You want specific details from SJs then frame the question with words that have a specific meaning.

    However, I beleive the OP wanted a general interpretation. S/he was casting her/his net wide to see the responses s/he got.
