Most ISTJs I've met are more likely to adhere to a set of rules they believe are just and not rules enforced on them. Yes they would obey (like many of us would) where not adhering to rules enforced would be punishable but they (from what I have noticed) do so with scorn.
Where boredom is concerned -
STJs are quite funny and are usually good story tellers.
I will never understand claims like these. Do you guys think that the millions of Americans bullied and isolated each year are facing that because of abstract perception or something? That the millions suffering from depression and anxiety would automagically be cured if they thought concretely and enjoyed stable guidelines? That you must deeply relish metaphor to be prone to poverty or motivation issues?
If the majority of Americans really are SJ and a substantial portion of Americans are suffering from some of the above issues, that alone should tell you that SJ doesn't equal "normal" and perfectly molded, shouldn't it?
One of the best posts I read here in some time.
One thing that doesnt work either tho is that in our present times, you aint allowed no more to have any prejudices against SJs. If you were to make a thread about "SJs suck" and a thread about "NTs suck", you'ld face more rejection of your polemics in the first case than in the latter. The latter would prolly drift to self-irony and not take the topic serious, while the first one does form into some sort of "highschool gang" where it is either you are with us or against us.

Yep, things still don't suck for me either. But thanks for checking in, whomever bumped this thread.
Murphy Brown: What is it with us? Why can't we take the easy road once in awhile?
Avery Brown: Because it's boring and dishonest and uncomfortable, like wearing a pair of shoes all day that pinch your feet.
I was being hyperbolic for effect. You know I love my NFs. Especially you, prplz. <3
“Everybody has a secret world inside of them. All of the people of the world, I mean everybody. No matter how dull and boring they are on the outside, inside
them they've all got unimaginable, magnificent, wonderful, stupid, amazing worlds. Not just one world. Hundreds of them. Thousands maybe.” -Neil Gaiman
This thread is just so stupid. I have to work on "being an SJ" constantly since all my problems stem from not having full access to those functions. I wish people would notice that MBTI could be helpful if you can work on using your weak functions. Yes, it sucks to be an SJ with handicapped use of Ne just as much as it sucks to be an NP who's handicapped in Si. I know this thread was 2011, I hope this fact has become 100% clear to 100% of people who have spent more than 2 months on this site.
