    Default Intellectually curious SJ's

    What separates the intellectually curious SJ's from the non-intellectually curious SJ's?

    SJ's, on average, seem to be one of the least intellectually curious of the types, but some break this stereotype.

    Do you think extroversion vs. introversion has to do with it? Maturity? Intelligence? Upbringing?

    It's a good thing for you there aren't many SJs on the board. Did I mention LOL? LOL.

    Upbringing was an interesting thing to mention. It might have heavy weight in this case, since if an SJ is raised to value curiosity and intellectual pursuits, and if SJ's feel best when they uphold their values, then they would try hard to be curious and grow up to be "intellectual". Does that sound plausible?
    You can't spell "justice" without ISTJ.

    I think an SJ will have to have some conditions favorable to intellectualism, more so than the other types, for them to be of the intellectually curious breed. Like introversion, IQ, an upbringing where free thought was encouraged, and/or intellectual parents who could answer all of their "why" questions.

    And also, since SJ's are goal oriented, if they happen to have a goal of understanding the world, finding themselves, attaining wisdom..etc. this will of course help.

    And then how would those pursuits be different for an SJ than they would for a more naturally intellectual type? Assuming the SJ does not continue these intellectual pursuits for the sole (or main) reason of obligation, and develops a true liking for them (is that possible, deep-down?)...would the only difference be in how they found the path that led them to that enjoyment?

    You started out with the question, and now we're all asking you questions... Pardon us.
