    Default Why am I an ISTJ?

    I consistently test ISTJ, trying to be as honest as I can on any given test (including one like 10 minutes ago). I've tested a dozen times and it's always ISTJ.

    *I dislike conformity. It bothers me.
    *I hate stupid rules
    *I'm irritated by people who follow and enforce stupid rules and that think everyone should be/act a certain way
    *I can be pretty lazy and un-dutiful. If I can't see a direct, positive result in completing a given task, I probably won't do it or I'll slack at it - meaning, I don't preoccupy myself with work and busyness just for the sake of being busy.
    *I'm not a clean-freak... But I'm not a pig.
    *I'm not overly concerned about upholding traditions or at least to the 'T', in fact, a lot of the time, I think it's a little cheesy.
    *I don't use spreadsheets, or a day-timer, or really notes at all for that matter.

    What am I? Just a fucked up ISTJ?

    You know what? I was just reading a post of yours and thinking how very unISTJ your posts always sound actually.

    T is capable of transcending a lot of behavioral patterns. I think you're an ISTJ in much the same way as I am an INTP. Experience driven.

    Not saying you implied it "as opposed to F" but you think F isn't?

    Because I wouldn't agree either way. That's what makes typology scope limited - it can't say anything about actual behavior.

    I'm not F so I don't know about F and I wasn't implying anything of the sorts. All I know is that I can use T to 'chameleon' myself away, through principles, from behavioral patterns I do not deem important of worth my while.

    Younger generations are experiencing a cultural change where values are being shifted. People are becoming more and more aware that it's a bad idea to follow rules, and because people desire more individualism/freedom. There's an explosion of anti-authority positions like being an emo, noncomformist etc. Even if it's a fad, it still does represent the fact that things are changing. Questions are being raised to whether previous rules were effective.

    There's nothing wrong with tradition but I think many people associate it with backwards/old style thinking. An example of this would be Britian moving towards secularism, and in doing so people are more likely to reject traditions that come along with it. Values like desire for equality end up with people attempting to reject gender role stereotypes and so fourth.

    But Yes. You could be a broken ISTJ.

    Beat, have you considered ISTP?
    If you could be anything you want, I bet you'd be disappointed--am I right?

    I am none of these things, except for maybe the traditions thing (personal family traditions), and yet, I am an ISTJ. So idk, we're just weird ISTJ's I guess. :/

    The ISTJ people know now has been influenced by the generation they are in. Current generation ISTJs are noticeably different for me... A lot of ISTJs I know could relate to your OP.
