    Default Im ISTJ but...

    I've read this about ISTJ people

    "The ISTJ is not naturally in tune with their own feelings and the feelings of others"

    What do they mean with that??
    I would say i empathyze easily, even easier with people i care...

    I dont get it

    Empathize with a person, yes that's not related to type, but being aware of their feelings at any given moment is another matter.

    there's a good chance you aren't an ISTJ as people incorrectly type themselves all the time because of how fallible the test is and because they only rely on the test to type themselves.

    ISTJs have inferior Ne, not inferior Fe.

    Anyway, I've come across more than one emotionally perceptive and empathic ISTJ in my life. My best friend is one of them. These things can be cultivated, even on supposedly infertile soil.

    I dont even know what is that, but im going to research.

    I just say im ISTJ because of two things, the description is the more accurate i've read and i've done the test 2 or 3 times on different websites, asnwering slightly different questions but getting the same results.

    giggly has a point though. the problems you're facing are more likely to be related to your enneagram type not your MBTI type.

    Note the word 'Naturally'

    Meaning, if just out the box you be bad with feelings. But nurture can make you one of the more Feely ISTJs.
