    To build upon something that was said before, I like to do things the way theyve always been done. After doing that for awhile, if I feel there is a better way I will try to do it in the better way. But when I am first starting I like to take the traditional approach.

    After reading many ISTJ definitions around, Ive been thinking that Im a "non traditional" one.

    I hate doing things following the "this has always worked fine, why changing it?" criteria. In fact, I got praise in my job for innovating most of our working processes, so Im not sticking on traditions on that respect.

    Also, Im Agnostic, (that put me against one of the "traditional" institutions), and pro-abortion.

    Not to mention my strong sex drive, which clashes with the classical definition of my MBTI type (prude, masturbation addict -you can find some "motivational posters" out there with jokes about that) And, my ability to organize parties and meet-ups for my friends.

    my ISFJ mother and ESTJ best friend are both very diet conscious when they make their food decisions... my ISTJ has become so recently

    this means a lot of using dessert plates for dinner

    I think a lot of people are far more traditional than they'd like to think - Ss and Ns both.

    You might be really weird in some ways, but everyone is weird in some ways. Like everyone is "normal" in some ways, fitting "traditional" molds of various types, to varying degrees.

    So I'm not sure it's accurate to lump SJs into "traditional" and non-SJs into "non-traditional". Perhaps they're likely to value a higher proportion of traditional roles, but it's hardly a dichotomy.

    I don't but I think there are a lot of overweight SJ's.

    Definitely. In our society it's not cool to admit (to yourself even!) that you're traditional or conservative in some ways. Personally, I get a kick out of telling people that I'm traditional and watching the room clear out.

    Of course, there are always a few people who are initially intrigued by it because it's something uncommon nowadays in a young single woman, but after a while, they don't like it.
