SJ's: all 4 of you come together and riddle me this:
Why is it the general population of you is to stare at weird people? Like whenever I leave my hair messy people give me the you're weird look. But when I keep it neat. People think I'm a celebrity. I'm interested and it's annoying that some people judge by these extremes.
Other types are welcome to answer and for their input as well.
I mean I've seen people in concerts have long hair. Do they get freakish looks all the time? Why with people who gave tattoos get less looks? I have no idea.

I can't say I tend to give people weird looks/stare at them unless they have something crazy going on like half of a full beard and half of a shaved face (I have seen this in WalMart before...interestingly it was likely a phenomenon called hemispatial neglect, which is often due to severe brain damage of one hemisphere of the brain).
I have to say, though...I have more often than not been on the receiving end of such weird looks. I'm not sure why, either. I think I look pretty normal, but something about me must repulse certain people.

The answers to these homework assignments I'm grading are freaking ridiculous.
Case study (simplified): A man gets hit in the head and goes to the ER blah blah blah. Testing revealed a skull fracture and a dark mass between the skull and the brain.
1. Question (simplified): What do you diagnose this man with?
Answer (from student): Meningitis.
[Real answer is a type of brain bleed.]
2. Question (simplified): Would you keep this patient for further observation?
Answer (from a different student): No.
[Real answer is duh yes because the guy is bleeding within his skull.]

1) Strong Si means being very aware of anything that doesn't fit into your pre-established mental system of How Things Work (however you define that)
2) Strong Te means being very aware of "disrespectful behavior" (however you define that)
3) Strong Fe means being very aware of "inconsiderate behavior" (however you define that)
That being said, there are judgmental people of all types, and there are non-judgmental people of all types. So, whether "How Things Work", "disrespectful behavior", or "inconsiderate behavior", includes people having messy hair, will completely 100% depend on your own definitions of those three categories.
Personally, I tend to notice anything out of the ordinary, just because my eye is drawn to that -- whether it's a good thing or a bad thing. If I'm staring at someone's hair, it's more likely that I'm impressed by it, than that I'm judging it.

And then there was the woman who told me about her failed modelling career and the time she got a DUI and also almost got arrested for bringing a kid a pair of glasses at an elementary school
And then last night was the cashier at circle k at 1 am who decided to tell me all about how his ex-fiance stole all his video games when they broke up and about playing tabletop gaming about vampires with his friends

Tertiary Ne is the reason I don't look? And maybe because it's Seattle?
I don't know how people can have such a stick up their ass about something like hair. My SJness comes out more (and in full force) when people suggest a course of action to take and have no statistics to back the plan up. Or when they present an argument and don't cite sources and details. It's stuff like that that bothers me, not fashion. Or when I need something explained and the other person only explains in generalities and gives no examples.
SJness is more about habit, routine, details and statistics, at least to this ESTJ. As long you do your work well, respect your obligations and those around you, I don't have much of a problem with you in the general sense.
