    If you want to know I also think that forum needs more sensors to become what it should be.

    Sensing is where it's at.

    Also, ISTJ's seem to have very strong feelings to my perception. They're just not big on expressing them at every chance they can like other types do.

    My brother is an ISTJ. We joke about how between the 2 of us we have all our bases covered, seeing as we cover all 8 possible MBTI letters.

    To me, it seems he doesn't understand his feelings and that they get in the way of his logic on the rare occasion that his soul decides to jump into his decision making process. I'm sure if he could live in a world without feelings, he'd be a lot more comfortable there. The flipside to this is that he has very definite emotions that he calls upon whenever he's in a very comfortable situation like talking with his closest friends or to me (I kind-of acted as a pseudotherapist for him during our younger years I guess, maybe just because I was the only person close enough to him that was willing to listen), so I can see his emotional gears turn underneath all the brainwork. Comprehending him still confuses me to a degree, though.

    I think he knows that feelings can sometimes take priority and have a heavier influence on how you should act as long as its a feeling-related event taking place (as in relationships, he's going to delve into his heart and try to see how he really feels and explain it to himself with logic internally to help him better enforce his epiphanies when the time comes for emotional debate)

    I hope most of that made sense.

    He definitely thinks through any decision he makes (and re-thinks, and scrutinizes...)

    It takes him several months to decide on a car. He will research magazines, internet, in person, etc. He will ultimately know more about a vehicle than the salesperson does. Boy, does he beat himself up if every step isn't planned and executed very precisely.
    Ive seen this in my ISTJ bf too.
    He would rather maximize, or inspect everything before making a decision.
    He talks a lot about what he may, or may not buy, and things.
    Like motor cycles, and guns, and just things he wants. He's been wanting to go on a trip for years but hasn't done so yet because he's a perfectionist.

    I'm wondering if he has Obsessive Compulsive personality disorder... lol

    He is certainly preoccupied with details of all the things in this damn world.

    No seriously though, does this thing about thinking and scrutinizing and re-checking ever become a hinderance to the ISTJ or is just to other people that it becomes a problem.

    Like with the person that said their husband has been going on a trip for years and hasn't gone yet...I would think you decide it you want to go, plan for it, then go. All this detailing just gets in the way.

    Yes, it can be a hindrance at times, it really can. Don't know how to explain it, but it follows the train of thought that "as long as I can sort this all out, and figure out every detail, I can fix everything in the end". I even have little nervous habits (comparable to biting fingernails) that seemed to be based on this principle, somehow.
    You can't spell "justice" without ISTJ.

    Total OCD!
    I can relate to this though. I tend to obsess about relationships. Perhaps the ISTJs obsess about something else. I think we all be better people on Zoloft!

    Kind of a sweeping generalization but who knows.

    With regard to my own feelings, I express them; but I also understand why I feel happy, sad, etc. As an example, one of the things that amuses me about people is when they drive. People who speed up to pass me and then slam on the brakes to stop at the light that I know is going to turn red always gets a wry smile from me. The smile is not based on what theydid (or didn't do); it's the feeling of wondering if they learned something from the experience and realizing they probably didn't. They are then classified as potential hazards and the feeling passes.
    You sound pretty detached and cynical.
    lol
