    Talking ISTJ's to ISTP's?

    My grandfather, uncle, and neighbor are all ISTJ's, or so I think. They are elder, which is where my question comes into play.

    I have noticed that as ISTJ's get older, they tend to act more like ISTP's? Maybe It's more then just ISTJ's, maybe I'm being too specific.

    Anyways, I have noticed this trend, and wanted to get your opinion. Thanks!

    I guess that makes sense because as far as I understand it, as we get older we move to a more balanced position within the dictomies. I'm over 40 and have moved closer to center on the SN and TF scale but I'm just as Introverted as ever.

    Or put another way, we mellow with age..... Has nothing to do with type.

    I love it when INFPs dream that someone's core personality can change throughout time or through experiences. It's not gonna happen, forget it.

    Maybe you have it backwards. Maybe they're ISTPs who acted like ISTJs.

    ah, no arguing, I was just wondering what you're ideas towards this "phenomenon" are..I guess they do just really mellow out..
    Is it that by its indefiniteness it shadows forth the heartless voids and immensities of the universe, and thus stabs us from behind with the thought of annihilation, when beholding the white depths of the milky way?

    At least he's honest

    On topic, I have nothing to add. Well, maybe this. My very annoyingly ISTJ friend will hopefully someday mellow out to ISTP. He's so freaking closed minded about almost everything. Ever. My ESTP friend and I have very slowly gotten him to drink a full Crown and Dr. Pepper (he doesn't like Coke). What a surprise, he likes it now! Next step is non-Southern-comfort-food. Poor kid only likes steaks, mashed potatoes, mac & cheese, and wraps or sandwiches. Not that there's anything *wrong* with liking that...but that's about all he eats. Ever.
