I see. Good luck with that! :) It can be hard to change and grow, but it's worth it. I'll add your tritype to my PerC ISTJ spreadsheet. :D You must be self-preservation dominant as well, right? I relate to your posts too well.9w1 5w6 3w2 sp/so (uncertain of the 3w2, work in progress)
This is what I have right now... still working out the tri's fully. I'm finally starting to normalize after a 4-5yr very dark period of my life... So i'm still working out what my normal self is and what I felt like during the intense stress of the last few years.
Today was my last day working in the cafe and V. (an old guy that's real sweet who keeps joking about finding me a man to marry me off to) was crying because he'll miss me and I'm a "good kid".
It was awkward.
A few things that I've noticed about myself that conflict with the ISTJ description include:
-I'm not always one to worry about being on time. It depends on how important being on time is in the situation. If it's something like going to a friends house to hang out or going to a college class where they don't take attendance, I really don't mind being a few minutes late However, if it's something like work or a class that I have to be on time everyday, I'm always there much earlier than I need to be so that I don't get punished/fired/left out/etc.
-I'm not very close to my family at all. I've always felt extremely isolated when around them and it's only gotten worse as I've gotten older. My family isn't really anything like me, and I'm closer to a few of my friends than I am to my family.
-I'm also not unable to express my emotions in certain situations. While it is true that 95% of the time I'm feeling almost no emotion, certain people have been able to bring out my emotions. My ex girlfriend really brought me out of my shell, which was refreshing because that was the first time I had ever opened up to anyone in 18 years. I've been searching for someone that I can be open with again because I miss that feeling.
-I dislike having a full schedule, but there is no way around it since I'm in college now. In high school I used to plan as little as possible out so that I would have a completely open schedule aside from school. This no longer works in college since I spend almost all day doing homework and working, so it kind of depresses me from time to time. I still make sure to leave my schedule open on breaks though.
... and then get home/away from everyone/quiet time and you're like ... "WTF just happened, OMG when (NOT "if") I come down and crash really hard and have NOTHING left for ANYONE for like ... two days straight."
^ True IME.
I'm probably one of the few ISTJs who loooove to go out, socialize, meet new people, really get to know them, develop good lots of good lasting friendships :)) I don't like to just hang around one group of people. I like to make friends of different backgrounds. And it's crucial to have good co-workers in order for me to perform work at my job^^
Social Ones: The Crusader (Ichazo's "Inadaptability")
Social Ones focus their perfectionism in the social realm; thus, they are interested in local and world affairs. What is going on with the school district? Has that new environmental legislation been passed? Why doesn't anyone care about the enormous problem of world hunger? Social Ones take these issues personally, and they devote their time and energy to bringing people's attention to social ills. In other words, they do not want merely to talk about problems, they want to get involved and take action. While they may work tirelessly for the causes that they care about, Social Ones may have trouble developing a personal life. They are not particularly interested in social ease, for themselves or for others; rather, they are concerned with finding the "right way" for people to conduct themselves with one another. When they are more identified with this attitude, they may feel that others do not know what is best for them. With regard to themselves, Social Ones feel that personal needs can be addressed only after more pressing social problems have been faced. This zeal can be hard on their families and intimates, but people are often amazed by the strength of the Social One's convictions and are grateful for the good work that they contribute to the community.
I doubt it since I prefer to go against aswell as to crush and squeeze tradition. There is Tradition and there is tradition, the first goes along with evolution and nature the second is the result of modern humanity (last 10 000years or so). The first is most always sound and good, the second is most always suspicious, outdated and down-right dangerous.
I doubt it when some of my enneagram types make me a bit more imaginative, fantastical and generally imsy-wimsy than a typical Right-Wing traditional ISTJ.
I doubt it when I doubt it. Otherwise I don't really doubt it.
< is most certainly NOT a "Social 1".
