    Career anomaly

    Every test I take and every description I read pegs me as a strong ISTJ... except for career lists. I'm a fanatical musician. I love fiction. And I work in broadcasting. I do think I bring ISTJ traits to my job and hobbies, but I'm not sure I would be happy in data-crunching type jobs. I dunno, maybe I would.

    Can anybody make sense of why a strong ISTJ would be obsessive about music and art?

    INFP - The Idealists

    I don't know. I think they have a secret artistic side. An old roommate of mine, an ISTJ, is now making a living as a professional artist and has a good eye for composition. I can tell exactly how she was feeling at the time when each piece was created, even though she never expressed any emotions with her facial expressions, body language, or tone of voice. When I commented on how each piece of artwork affected me, she was able to tell me the details of what was going on in her life at the time when she created it, and the general feel of her work was always related to her experiences. She makes fascinating metal sculptures with found objects. Art can be a good way to reveal the buried emotional/creative side of an ISTJ.

    My ISTJ second cousin is also an artist and a musician. She has a fascination with mermaids and draws very expressive eyes on her characters. Just as in the other case, the things she draws express more feeling than she does. She has been interested in art since she was a very young child, and has also been playing music all of her life. She plays the piano and the bass guitar very skillfully.

    My dad is an ISTJ, and he has very good taste in music. He listens to it almost constantly. He isn't very expressive about his feelings, but he clearly has feelings underneath his rigid exterior. The music touches the emotional side of him that isn't visible.

    Every ISTJ that I have known in real life has been interested in art or music. It isn't strange at all.

    This actually gives me as an artist a lot of hope. There are many times in which it seems like the artists and writers are doing little more than creating for one another. Of course, there is nothing wrong for creating for fellow INFPs and what have you, nothing at all. It's just that, well I guess part of being an INFP means wanting to touch everyone's life. And these days, almost no one seems to have much time for art in any of its forms (unless you count the kitsch that's being passed off as art). So yeah, thanks for proving that art isn't just for certain types, biotrom!

    I will be graduating with a B.S. in Computer Science with a minor in Mathematics in a semester. If I decide not to accept a grad school offer, I look to get a job as a software engineer. I don't think being an ISTJ conflicts much with my ability to perform the duties of my intended field.

    I've grown up enjoying music and art. I played the trumpet for several years and I love to draw and paint. I've noticed that for me I enjoy the detail of it. Playing music is freeing and lets the soul fly, but at the same time it's very mathematical and requires lots of repetitious practice as well. I'm not sure why you're so drawn to music and art, but maybe it balances you out since you peg yourself as a die-hard ISTJ. I don't know. My mom is an ENFP and she works at the library. Of course she's a children's story teller with puppets and singing and stuff, but like you she brings balance to the atmosphere around her. Just my thoughts on things. Hope it sounds about right.

    I'm an ISTJ college student (in between colleges at the moment) and I'm trying to figure out what career to pursue. I recently took a career test that put librarian at the top of the career fit list. I'd say it probably would suit me very well. I thought it was interesting that librarian was in every list posted here. I still don't really know where I'm going, but at least I know there are people like me out there who have struggled through the process as well.
