    Default How did you come to type yourself as an SJ?

    I'm pretty sure many of us aren't as

    as our type descriptions make us out to be, and functions - or even dichotomy - don't have much to do with the descriptions that get assigned to our type.

    From a certain perspective, it seems strange that we'd type ourselves as SJ, when we could literally type ourselves as NJ and avoid all those negative stereotyping.

    What makes you type as SJ in typology communities? How did you come to identify yourself as this type? Inquiring minds, etc.

    One day I looked inside of myself and realized that I was not a human being, but a robot. And thus, I became an SJ.

    A hell of a lot of data collecting over a number of years, seeing how I responded in different situations, getting outside opinions as well as my own...it was a long process :L

    Initially the ISFJ descriptions did put me off- like you say a lot of SJs aren't like how descriptions say, however my functions definitely make me at the very least an ISXJ because my Si is so strong. I'm not really the mothering, nurturing type like descriptions make out ISFJs to be, and although I am caring I'm certainly not one to shower people in love and affection.

    Yeah I feel. and the descriptions of the types are so specifically situational, that outside of these scenarios it's hard to identify ourselves as SJ at all since obviously we only maybe act that way like five percent of the time at best.

    Functions are where it's at, I guess. And yeah, it's a long process, too.

    To be honest, when I originally got into MBTI most of the questionaires I took told me I was an SJ. Sometimes I question my S because I also have N qualities so I always feel like I am borderline there. Nonetheless, I strongly relate to the J factor and if there is anything I feel 100% about in my MBTI type, it is the fact I am a J. I love structure, routine, and have made personalized menus for certain days a specific meal solely for the sake of a desire for structure in my eating life.

    I am madness. XD
