    I may be in the minority here, but being an ISTJ now, I acted like anything but an ISTJ as a kid. I had a very different personality as a kid compared to now.

    This all made me wonder:
    - How did you ISTJ's think you were as a child?
    When I was a kid, I didn't really think much lol. If I did it would be about what fun activity I could do.

    - How did you react on strange people?
    Didn't really mind them.

    - What things were you interested in?
    Video games, basketball, hanging out with the family.

    - What were your favourite hobbies?
    Lego's were a big hobby of mine. Except I wouldn't try to build things, I would try to imitate the models that I saw in magazines, I was more of an imitator than a creator.

    - Were you serious?
    Serious was the opposite of my personality.

    - Were you persistent?
    Persistent... eh, not really.

    - How did you react to mess?
    lol I didn't care much about messes because it wasn't my responsibility.

    - Were you clean child?
    I was the one making the messes usually. No, not really clean.

    - Were you disturbed of change?
    Loved change for the opportunity of a new environment and possibility of fun.

    - Did you like to play in big groups of children?
    No, didn't really like big groups of children, particularly those I was unfamiliar with.

    - How did you react on social pressure?
    I usually gave in to be part of the group.

    - Did you go your own way or the way other went?
    Definitely the way the other went lol.

    - + all the other things you remember from your childhood.
    Loud mouth, hyperactive, frequently got into trouble, both in school and at home. Loved to have fun, friendly, didn't care much about work, very competitive.

    And I know everybody's different but I would think ISTJ's would have some common traits when they were children.

    Hello! A little help here:

    - How did you ISTJ's think you were as a child?
    A quiet kid, serious, emotionally repressed.

    - How did you react on strange people?
    I studied them. By watching their whole appearance and gestures and hearing them speak. I loved to study people when I was a kid.

    - What things were you interested in?
    Music and movies.

    - What were your favourite hobbies?
    Writing, thinking, and, organizing the stuff in my room, from toys to my underwear, by colour, shape, size and any other category suitable for the object.

    - Were you serious?
    Yes.

    - Were you persistent?
    For sure.

    - How did you react to mess?
    I avoided mess at all costs.

    - Were you clean child?
    Yes.

    - Were you disturbed of change?
    Only by radical changes to my everyday routine.

    - Did you like to play in big groups of children?
    No. I played with a few close friends.

    - How did you react on social pressure?
    It was depressing at first, but I learnt at a very young age to accept myself (with the help of a therapist), taking into account the opinion of people who cared for me, and ignoring the rest (which makes the awkward "social pressure")

    - Did you go your own way or the way other went?
    My own way.
