    I dunno...it depends how close we are I guess. I'm not sure how to answer that.

    They are very good at what they do. At least my step-mom is. I don't think she makes mistakes ever.

    Yes. The ones I've known tend to be very thorough, yet timely, in almost everything they do.

    Accept the past. Live for the present. Look forward to the future.

Perhaps these aren't stereotypical of an istj but I don't think type is everything to do with it.
    I like my taste in music and movies. I like to think it's pretty good.

    Nope, I procrastinate like it's my job, and MBTICentral is a wonderful procrastination tool!

    I procrastinate too, depending on what it is. There are some things that I repeatedly plan to do and know I need to do, but I still put them off because I just don't feel like doing them.

    they're reliable. Calm and patient. And they tend to be remarkably chatty once they like you.

    Yeah, I wish more people knew that I am actually quite talkative and fun once you get to know me. I feel like people think I'm just quiet and serious and boring all the time.

I don't think I'm like that ...are there any good traits? Maybe I got that side of the deal
    I know several ISTJs and I think, what you mention are not necessarily negative traits.
    Rigid, with the rule-book and serious at work, as it should be, but most are willing to have some fun time. So, they can be or not boring, depending on the situation and the particular person.
    Super-organised: how the heck is this any negative? If they don't try to apply their organisation skills in every single aspect of their lives (and real life people usually don't), it's an admirable trait.
    I think any healthy ISTJ can be as ok as anybody else. And I've hardly met any people in real life that totally meet their MBTI stereotypes, most people are more balanced than that.
    That said, I usually have various conflicts with all Js, at work, and that despite being relatively organised myself. Many have a tendency to insist their way is the best possible way to do things, but that's ok, since I can understand their perspective (and not because they're being Js, but cause they are people, with preferences, just as anybody else) and don't let myself be bothered of this.
