I have to say, I really love ISTJs! One of my best friends is xSTJ and she's amazing! She is great at helping me stay focused and when she gets all blunt and critical I poke fun at her and then she laughs! And we always have fun together!
And the ISTJs I've followed on this site are great!! @niss, @Yardley Bey, @zeth006 to name a few. I love the way they think and wicked sense of humour.
But of course I'm saving the best for last! I absolutely, unreservedly adore my ISTJ man!!! He is the most grounded, loving, loyal, caring person I have ever met. He loves me without question, and would do anything to make me happy! And does!
Yes, he can appear cold and distant from the outside, especially people who don't know him. And sometimes he's not engaged. But he's always there when i need him, because it's me. He means what he says, he does what he says he's going to do, and does it to the best of his ability, even if it's at a high cost to himself. But underneath is a warm and loving man who has gone to great lenghths to make our relationship the best! We have both worked on giving each other what the other one needs, while understanding we can't be all things, all the time.
We compromise. Sometimes we stay in, other times we go out. Sometimes we debate heatedly and agree to disagree :) sometimes we don't talk much at all and other times we help each other process the life around us. We laugh ALOT!!!
We have learned to understand each others language, POV, and needs. We are yin and yang. His ISTJness fits perfectly with my ENFP. So if you ask me, next to ENFP, ISTJs are my favourites!
