    Hm, I think perhaps I worded that wrong. I never really want to escape from reality in the sense that I would be considered "dreamy" or "idealistic" (if you ever referred to me as that in front of any of my family or friends, they'd probably laugh and say that you're thinking of the wrong person ).

    But what I meant was that sometimes it's nice to just take a "break" for a couple seconds, sit on a bench in the park on a nice fall day, close my eyes, feel the sun or breeze on me, and just think about things. Then get up, open my favorite planner, and hopefully have some clarity that will help me make the right decisions about my future plans. Lists, research, questions, etc. can only go so far...sometimes I need to check myself and get a little perspective by sitting by myself for a small amount of time and thinking things through. I love facts, but sometimes I have so many of them going through my mind that it's nice to have a moment without all my responsibilities and duties or deadlines (that I love so much...honestly, I do ). But even with things you love it's nice to take a break so as to not get overwhelmed.

    People always compliment me on being so calm, being "the rock" in a crisis, and having everything so organized and controlled. But internally, I'm not always as 100% sure about everything as I can seem. Sometimes I need a little introverted time and self-reflection too! I need to visually go through scenarios in my mind and see what works best for me/everyone/the situation and what might be the repercussions of that course of action.

    At least, I think that's what I meant.

    We do. ISTJs can be very self reflective. I just think that we are really good with doing it whilst also doing other things (i.e we're NOT - sitting around all day unproductively thinking about the "meaning of life" but INSTEAD - going about our daily routine, tasks, etc. and completing those efficiently, while at the same time making internal observations about ourselves or those around us). Or some ISTJs might prioritize it (i.e. completing all the tasks on our list and doing what needs to be done, then after that spending a moment self-reflecting).

    I don't think so but then I'm the one getting my family/friends to take the test, so ... I think i am pretty transparent.

    I agree with that. I'm very self-reflective. It's rather a big need of mine, I just don't necessarily show it or talk about it. It's private for me and isn't something I put out there in my every-day persona. And yes, I often self-reflect while doing other things.

    irl I seem like an ESFP who acts like an ISFJ.

    ENFJ - Some people who do not know me very well have a hard time believing that I am introverted. This especially goes for classmates.
    ISFP - My friends all think I am very laid back and go with the flow. They don't realize it's a constant effort not to just take control of every situation and boss everyone around until things are exactly how I think they should be.

    My mom might think I'm some sort of S because she always claims I have wonderful observational skills. For example, if a family friend whose wife just passed away came over, I am likely to observe things like whether or not he is still wearing his ring, how often he brings up her name, etc. This is only due to me thinking that this information is important but in most situations, I couldn't tell you if my boyfriend shaved his beard, where I'm at when I'm driving/riding in a car, etc.

    Depends. People who guess my type based on how I act in everyday life and, in particular, in a work setting always guess I'm an N and a P (zero observation skills, weak follow-through, etc). People who guess my type based on my opinions guess I'm SJ. They're probably right. Who knows...

    I completely get where Autumn Reverie is coming from: I don't have any other SJs in my family or even among my close friends. Plenty of INFx and xNTP though...

    I can do a pretty good ESFP impersonation when drunk. Heck, I can do it sober.

    At school, my colleagues probably assume I'm an ENTP.

    I get mistaken for being an INFP a lot.
    Is it that by its indefiniteness it shadows forth the heartless voids and immensities of the universe, and thus stabs us from behind with the thought of annihilation, when beholding the white depths of the milky way?

    Oh it ranges from the following:
    ESFP: because I'm outgoing and crazy sometimes. But I'm so introverted its not funny.
    ISFJ: because I came here thinking I was one, so some still think I am.
    INFP: This one flatters me actually.

    :rolli: go figure.

    I wonder if I could be mistaken for a T? hmmm....
