    Smile Oh No...Another ISTJ!

    Hi everyone,

    Well, I am an ISTJ-6, so I guess you won't be surprised if I list a lot of facts!

    I'm Jennifer, 32, and I now live in Orange County, CA by way of NE Ohio and Denver. I am an accountant for a real estate development company. I was an ICU nurse for 5 years, but I went back to school and changed my career to something that I felt was more like me. I just finished my MBA and now I am studying for my CPA. I credit the MBTI for helping me figure out what I wanted to be when I "grew up", despite the fact that already had a BSN and I was 27 when I took it. I've studied MBTI off and on. I love psychology.

    People often are surprised to find out that I am an ISTJ, or at least the I and T part, because I can be extroverted if I feel a duty to be in a particular situation. It's exhausting, though. People often think I am a F because I can be overly nice and accommodating. I tend to be a people pleaser, unless I am very close with someone. I get my feelings hurt easily, but I'd never let on that is the case!

    I love to read and learn a lot about whatever I am into at the time. I have a hard time not seeing errors, which I guess makes me good at accounting, but can be annoying and causes me to be pessimistic. I am SO anxious and I am a super perfectionist. I do not know any other female ISTJs, so I guess I am telling you all of this to see if I fit in!

    I tend to be attracted to sensitive, creative guys. I get along with everyone, but I tend to not be comfortable around ISTJ guys (in general, of course). Go figure.

    Anyway, that was more than you ever wanted to know!

    I am happy to have found a spot where I can talk to others interested in the MBTI.

    Nice to meet all of you,
    Jennifer

    PS: Now I will re-read my email twice so I will not embarrass myself with errors. Haha.

    Welcome, what sort of stuff do you like to read?

    I myself read alot of non-fiction. History, philosophy, along with religion and spirituality are probably my favorite topics to read about.

    Hi Peguy!

    I like to read a lot of non-fiction, too. It really depends on what I am interested in at the time. Right now, I am reading a history of Hollywood. I live about 40 minutes from there and I decided it might be interesting. I wanted to see how it became a place for movies, stars, etc. I've read a lot about different things... anything from WWII and chemistry/biology to many biographies of Marilyn Monroe and geisha. I'm eclectic, I guess! I can get interested in almost anything, unless it is really abstract and theoretical. I have a hard time understanding big picture concepts, but I get better with age.

    BTW, my boyfriend is an INFJ, and I know you all are rare. Very cool.

    Now big picture concepts is where I shine. But it's still cool.

    WWII you say? If you want, I can link to some of my posts on that topic. I actually posted a thread about the contrasting personalities of the great leaders of the war. Ever read any of Anthony Beevor's books?

    Yeah, link me up! I have not read his books, but it sounds interesting.

    Also, I really admire those of you that see big picture. Details can make you crazy.

    One thing I like about Beevor is that he concentrates on the human side of the conflict.

    Of course there's plenty of good books out there.
