    You can't spell "justice" without ISTJ.

    “Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    Most of the similarities can be tied to Si. I covered that earlier so won't bore you with a repeat. ISTJs do often seem to prefer order, but from what I've read of other ISTJ posts, it doesn't necessarily have to be what most imagine: immaculate rooms, ironed clothing, things like that. The ISTJs I've known seem to love it when things are tidy, but really just need things to be where they can find them, or perhaps more specifically, where they remember putting them.

    I've only seen significant amounts of data from one ESTJ. She was a lot more assertive than me, and a lot more orderly. But then, she was a three, and those traits can be tied back to that.

    We share all the same functions, but I think the positions make a big difference in presentation. Tertiary Fi in an ISTJ vs inferior Fi in an ESTJ means ISTJs are often more in tune with the feelings of others, and more inclined to consider those feelings when acting. It's not Fe, but it does promote consistency and authenticity, so it doesn't hurt socially at all to have more of it. I would consider Te doms, like ESTJs, more likely to be strong leaders than ISTJs. Te is a powerful and effective function for getting things done.

    @Kayness I <3 pandas. I made my avatar this panda 2 years ago, and it hasn't been changed since.

    We also have an eNTP named @JAVO who is our resident polar bear. So maybe everyone loves bears.

    Haha, my ex-ENTJ called me "Panda Bear" almost exclusively while we were dating. I hardly ever heard him use my actual name.

    I also played a tanking Druid in WoW, so when we were playing he would usually just shorten it to "bear". "Bear! Come tank things!"

    The words "Duty" and "ISTJ" are sometimes used inter-changeably [probably stereotype] .... is there any such thing as a non-dutiful ISTJ - ? In other words, what kind of cognitive "corruption" would it take for an ISTJ to go against their most commonly associated trait?
