To me, that has always been my downfall; getting committed to a job that I don't want to do, but feel I have to do.
    Yeah seems like we're prone to this behavior as well. Like you are letting people down. But they'll quickly leave us in the lurch if they had the opportunity. I reason that way when my 'duty calls' feelings kick in. It's not needed for almost 75% of matters in life. God and family primarily- everything else doesn't matter.

    Congrats to you! I think it's a step towards maturity for an ISTJ. Just move on! It was what it was- keep looking forward.

    I mean you don't pay attention to your feelings because you are more motivated by logic, as we are prone to do.

    Calm down.
    It's a silly allegation. Never in my life have I separated my personal feelings from logic. They go hand in hand. If I have a choice between going out drinking one night with a bunch of friends, getting laid, or staying home studying for a test for a class I care about, and I choose to study, that's not separating feelings from logic. That's going with the decision that matters more to me. Every logical decision I make is based on the fact I find it personally rewarding to make it. People seem to not understand this.

    That's not what this discussion is about.

    Actually, it is. Read your own posts.

    Does this sound familiar?
    What else are you supposed to get from this than separating emotions from logic? What kind of person doesn't realize that they're unhappy with something? That's not typological, that's a psychological issue. What was the frame of reference for this post, anyway? A single day? The bigger picture in terms of the job?

    I'm just frustrated at these posts that equate normal everyday things that are understood at a much more basic psychological level with typological preferences and outlooks. I'm talking about personal awareness, happiness, sadness, friendliness, hobbies, jobs, social skills, etc. These are things that have their own spectrum to measure and are unrelated to types.

    I refuse to believe that my ability to comprehend, manage and observe myself is even PARTIALLY dictated by my type.

    Yeah well your spazzing definitely isn't type related.

    But that's just like an ISTJ to take an innocent question and assume the worst intent behind it- Inferior Ne at work.

    My problem is people equating things unrelated to type with type, normal everyday actions that are part of being a human being. But, forget it. This discussion is pointless since you are barely taking anything I post seriously.

    I agree to a certain extent. My Si mind has back button, bookmarks, and favourites.

    I always keep my focus on the thing that piqued my interest at that moment, because I rarely, if ever, go off on tangents (I can say that I have AdBlock installed, to keep it in Internet language). My thinking processes are better matched to those of a research work. I first look for information, then store the useful pieces and put them together to understand things better. (Very much like when you copy paragraphs from the websites, and paste them in a new MS Word document.)

    And as for what you wrote- yes that happens to me. It happens pretty frequently, which is why I have to train myself to stay on target. There's nothing worse than that happening in the middle of you doing something important. I don't think this is related to type.

    Thanks to both of you. I go off on tangents all the time too, so I suppose this isn't related to type then.

    A different type everyday - so no need to type me anymore. But feel free to enjoy the sound of your own asscrack.

    Here's a question for you all. What do you think are some of the practical differences between Si and Ni? I've always had the idea that they are more similar to each other than either is to Se or Ne. I'd like to know what you all think about that, or if it's just me who sees the similarity.
