    I'm not using progress to connotate something positive, but rather simply a difference from a previous state. There are many examples of a progress (in the sense of time going forwards) which resulted in a more "negative" state for a given population.

    I think the flood is progress and the house is the old/traditional way.
    Yeah, right. Sometimes the flood isn't even that bad and everything returns exactly the same way, without any actions. In these cases, acting creates more problems than does good.

    Yeah that's true. All swaying from the traditional is digression, but not necessarily progression.

    +2 points for using the word foolhardy.

    Well, I'm very religious, but not a fundamentalist.
    I believe in evolution being taught at schools.
    I'm against the death penalty.
    I'm anti abortion.
    I support the 2nd Amendment.
    I'm for healthcare reform.
    I want stricter welfare.
    I'm economically moderate.

    Maybe I lean a little liberal, but the spectrum of left to right is very wide.

    This is what people do regardless of type when they are not much interested in politics. I find that location (metro city vs. rural area) is more of a indicator of their influences and what political direction they will tend to take. I think it's generally true what 'whatever' mentioned about ISFJ's often just going along with whatever their closest loved ones believe in.

    Although I live in an overwhelmingly liberal county and region of the U.S. I consider myself conservative, or more specifically, right of center.

    I think it has more to do with upbringing and whatever that leads them to believe is "traditional"; an SJ raised in a very liberal environment will likely be staunchly liberal.
    If you could be anything you want, I bet you'd be disappointed--am I right?

    I'm conservative. Part of that has to do with my religious views. And, honestly, part of it has to do with being brought up in a conservative home, specifically raised by an INFP mother.

    I'm fairly liberal. I'm not religious at ALL.
