    edit:
    probably for things that other peope dislike about ISTJs.
    I understand you completely. At my new job, all of the co-workers that I work with are deeply religious. Also I feel that I have a very up-tight attitude. Well that's what I project at first, but after a while I loosen up. Like you I internalize emotions, I hide them and am really good about it, but when other people want to talk about a certain emotional thing, I try my best to avoid it. Even if it means leaving the room.

    I think it honestly comes down to the rather pessimistic or sort of depressive attitude of the ISTJs. I'm aware a lot of ISTJ haters (who are not ISTJ). I've also seen it called the most boring type there is, the most traditional, etc. But I generally like being ISTJ, it's one of the top 3 types I would like to be. As an ISTJ, I get a lot of work done, I'm very efficient, and this type is very successful in the work force.

    More like: Really, IZ? Bumping a nearly 3 year old thread to add absolutely nothing of value? The purpose of this was.....?

    Okay, to add some value to this thread, I don't hate being an ISTJ but I concur that I do take things a little too seriously at times and I internalize my emotions A LOT. I don't feel comfortable discussing them and only a very select few ever hear/know about it.

    There is no perfect type. They all have their unique set of challenges. So there is no need to hate being your type.
