    I try to keep 'em guessing.

    I've been rather successful at typing people by photos, and what I see in that picture is completely against all things I consider ISTJish. The only plausable exception would be that it's intentionally meant to be non-ISTJ. But why would anyone post a picture that doesn't represent themself?

    I'm actually a "profiler" type myself in how I work.

    The problem is that there are MANY reasons why someone might use a particular picture... and many of them say nothing substantial on their own about the person and their core personality.

    The "how/why" matters more than the "what," and all data has to be looked at holistically and not as an isolated point.

    Many different reasons, but this is the most important:

    Yup. Let's find out why she chose those pics.
    That will tell you more than the mere presence of them.

    Some sort of SJ- people think I am REALLY detail-oriented because I go into a lot of detail on certain topics and I can be over-the-top w/ seeking specifics (to compensate for my spaciness)

    INFP- because an INFP thought we connected well.

    An INFP? Why do all of you ISTJ males keep trying to kick me out of the "ISTJ group"? Tsk, tsk. I'm staying.

    How is an ISTJ female supposed to look like? Have shorter hair? Not wear a dress? Have a military-focused avatar? An avatar proclaiming love for the history channel?

    Hmm, most of the people I know who are MBTI-aware in real life are INFx types. Maybe you could go somewhere where they would be?

    Perhaps if the picture is a representation of a side of the ISTJ that not most people don't get to see? A glimpse behind the ISTJ wall and another layer or aspect of my personality?

    Why did I choose those pics? To me, those pictures represent a moment when I'm not planning something, not being a sarcastic smart ass, not planning for the future or trying to decide what needs to be done right now, not being around other people and feeling awkward because I don't ~feel things like they do or open up easily or respond well to "touchy feely" stuff or spontaneity.

    The pictures kind of a represent a moment where I'm by myself and can just close my eyes and think outside of the reality that I usually enjoy living in, the responsibilities that I usually take on, and the worries that my 6w5 consantly makes me think about.

    I guess, in less words, the picture shows: a moment of self-reflection and indulgence. Which is what the MBTI is for me. So it was appropriate for this site.

    Sorry for the long answer!

    Soap operas suck. Law and Order jumped the shark a long time ago.
    Smallville is probably the most soapy show I watch, and that I only watch because of the superheroes.

    Oh I wouldn't know, I only watched Law and Order (SVU) two years ago during winter break because there were constant marathons and I just had knee surgery so I was confined to my bed I'm a t.v. show whore though, I have tons of t.v. shows on dvd!

    I stopped watching Smallville a long time ago though. I'd say my favorite shows at the moment are Battlestar Galactica (I miss it ), Arrested Development (yay for a movie!) and Friday Night Lights (amazing and under appreciated). Do those sound SJ-like?
