    I admit, having a collection of TV shows on DVD is rather SJ-like feature.

    BSG is (space) soap opera.

    A-ha! So, maybe you are truely an INFP, who's being forced to act like an SJ due to prevailing circumstances! (No, I'm never giving this up.)

    Also, I'd like to add that BlackCat is also a hibernating INFP. Cat-pictures gave him up.

    Is your collection also organized by genre?

    True. Still a great show though.

    Everyone in my family is xNFP (parents) or xSFP (sister) so, if anything, they pressure me to be more like that but I always resist and stick with my SJ. Growing up around "P"s drove me crazy because they would never plan for things and I love making detailed schedules and I dislike changes in plans or uncertainty. And growing up around all "F"s was frustrating too! If I wanted something I'd also make a logical and well structured argument (sometimes even passing out a binder with an outline of that argument, the actual argument, and examples of what I wanted ) and they looked at me like I was crazy.

    And whenever I argue with my xNFP parents they get mad because I don't show any ~emotions and they think I'm cold and businesslike. I told them that I'd rather have someone calmly discuss something with me in a cold business-like manner, then have someone be overemotional and scream out expletives at me. They disagree.

    I think you have an underlying obsession with INFPs. Perhaps you're projecting your own wishes onto us?

    Hmm, your STJ levels do look fairly low...

    Oh, that's an interesting situation. My family was a complete opposite. STJ rule was pretty strong back there. There should be a law about even distribution of types amongst families...

    I don't even recall emotions being discussed in my family...

    You had an STJ in the house? My friends always complained about their STJ parents and kept telling me how "cool" my ENFP parents were. I actually got along with their STJ parents quite well and kept telling them that they "weren't so bad".

    There definitely needs to be a balance. It was like I was always the odd one out in the family!

    That sounds nice. In my family there were always emotions flying off everywhere every.single.second. of the day it seemed. And they always talked about their feelings and wanted to know why I never said "I love you" or hugged them enough ever.

    I'm not as strong of an ISTJ as I used to be though, so we get along better now. Or perhaps that's just because I'm older and no longer live with them (and therefore don't have to deal with them on a daily basis, haha).

    ISTJs don't know how to flirt.

    Unless that ISTJ is named Eagle. Apparently he has "skills" in that area and d@v3 is envious.

    Yes, catch them all even if that means seven seasons worth. And they must be watched in order!

    No way.

    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!
    Very interesting. I didn't know ISTJ's had these kind of self reflections. I will have to observe them more closely to see if I can catch any glimpses of it. That would be interesting, indeed.

    entj's often see me as someone they can relate to, especially in the beginning. Starting sentences with "people like us" or saying, "you and I are SO alike." I don't know why. I think some people at work see me this way, too. Especially newer people. Since i'm quite a delegator when shit hits the fan.
    I've gotten this with a couple of entp's as well. Its bizzare, both types are quite opposite of me.
    Many of my friends are super extraverted and would see me as a definite ISFP, but they may or may not be right, can't tell.

    That means he just really likes us!

    That would be introversion.
