    People communicate primarily using their extraverted function. You have a factual, goal oriented and definite communication style that I see with all xxTJ types.

    So Ruthie, what do you think of ISTJ?
    If you could be anything you want, I bet you'd be disappointed--am I right?

    -I think out loud
    -I'm always happy to share my latest idea/thought/opinion

    BUT...

    -I like a lot of alone time
    -I enjoy solitary walks
    -I often dodge phone calls from friends
    -I have a hard time approaching new people
    -I can be very private
    Okay, this sounds like an extrovert to me. Despite the seemingly introverted characteristics (usually people have both characteristics anyway), this is mostly indicative of an E.


    Also...

    -I miss details
    -I link seemingly unrelated pieces of information
    -I have a tough time following rules and procedures

    BUT...

    -I value loyalty, community, family, tradition, etc...
    -I have good hand-eye coordination
    -I don't have near-supernatural hunches
    -I have a good memory for dates
    -I love history

    -Love history and all social sciences.
    -Dislike change.
    -Lack adventure streak.
    -Feel comfortable with tradition and routines.
    -Not particularly rebellious.
    -Am obsessed with the concept of loyalty.
    -Strong sense of nostalgia.

    And, the obstacles...

    -Have always been disorganized. Was so disorganized as a student that I was placed in a special 1-day class for right-brained thinkers.
    -Love theories and concepts, and am completely comfortable in that realm.
    -Daydream a lot.
    -Am oblivious to my environment.
    -Worst job I ever had was as a scheduler. I screwed up all the time and was almost fired.
    -No attention to detail.
    -Major lazy streak.
    -Always idealize belonging to groups (SJ), but never actually join anything.
    -Hate making plans.
    -Never stress about little things that need to be done.
    Both show a good combined use of Si/Ne, which ESxJs show more than ISxJs.

    Sold!

    ISTJ*

    @SimulatedWorld: I think it works.

    @TheChosenOne: I see exactly what you're saying about the type functions, and based on what you had to go on, I agree with your conclusion. But, while the points under both introversion and extroversion were correct, the points under introversion are both correct and important to me. Yes, I like to talk a lot when I'm with people I'm comfortable around, but if I had to choose, my alone time is more important, and is my default position. The classic question about whether solitude recharges my batteries, or whether I'm more energized being around people seems like a fair litmus test. Plus, having an introverted perception as a dominant function would explain the daydreaming a bit more, and the lack of outer organization.

    *All sales have a 30-day return policy. If purchaser is not fully satisfied, type may be returned in exchange for MBTI credit; another type may be selected at that time, or the credit may be held until such time as purchaser selects an alternative type.

    Haha alright. Hey I have no problems now, you're ISTJ. Welcome to the good side.

    It's cool to see a female version of my dad's type. It gives me a new perspective...

    Congratulations.
