    Default Are all ISFJs 'traditionalists'?

    Because they seem to be the most loyal followers in all of Typology.

    To actually answer your question though: I would say no. We are governors of systems and try to make good use of systems but I wouldn't say we're traditionalists, not in the (pardon the pun) traditional sense of the word. Rather, we try to maximize the current systems in place

    ^ Yep!

    The bolded is a general SJ thing -- i.e. fixing the existing system instead of making a new one. Though the tendency might be stronger in ISFJs? I dunno.

    I doubt it. I would say all SJs do it, but each type does it for its own reason

    I find that SJ descriptions tend to describe the older generations and don't much apply to the younger generations.

    ^ This.

    I think talking about "precedent", with SJs, makes more sense than talking about "tradition". "Precedent" doesn't have any of those unfortunate connotations.

    I wish!! Last time I tried baking something, it was a cake and apparently what was supposed to be a triple layer fudge cake turned into three black frisbees with fudge frosting on them
