    Is your word as good as gold?

    The ISTJ's word is as good as gold, and they honor their commitments faithfully. ...Consequently, they take their vows very seriously, and once they have said "I do", that means they are bound to the relationship until "death do us apart" or otherwise
    How much is this true of you?
    Have you ever said something that wasnt totally true.. and what situation would mak you do that?

    A promise is a promise. I usually feel bad or embarrassed if I don't follow up what I said I would do. As for marriage? Marriage is very important to me, I would not want to enter a marriage that didn't feel solid. IMO, if divorce is not an option, than you are less likely to make a mistake in your decision to commit and you are more likely to work hard once the commitment is made.

    Yes, as solid as a diamond most of the time.
    They say what they mean and they do what they say. I like them! :)

    So if an ISTJ called someone a 'close friend' and that the person was 'in their inner circle', what does that mean?

    It means the ISTJ really, really likes said person. I don't call someone a friend, especially not out loud, unless I truly consider the person I'm calling a good friend. I'm guessing an ISTJ has said this of you, @Dizzle? If so, it means you're very important to the ISTJ and they care about you.

    I have only broken a promise a few times (one was a lease, the other was an agreement to go to work for someone, which I later had second thoughts about), so I am much more careful about making promises now than I use to be. If I don't know for sure I can honor a commitment, I don't rush into it.

    With marriage, it is for life, "til death do us part". I dislike celebrity marriages for this reason, they barely last a couple of years and it cheapens marriage vows IMO. The should just remain unmarried in most cases.

    That they wouldn't say it if they didn't mean it, and the "close friend" should feel honored :)

    It means you are truly cared for. They care about you, and want things to go well for you.

    Funny how it is. I have a friend I do things with but don't get in his life, and another who I get into the personal matters and listen to her, and try to help her fix them. I don't consider the friend I do things with to be that close, but I do call the friend I care for personal matters for a close friend.

    If I promise something I will give it a large degree of priority in satisfying my commitment. Yes, marriage is for life, and we don't bullshit with people when the words are spoken "till death do us apart" we would definitely keep trying at it till things are certain to not work out in the long term, and then it shouldn't have been done in the first place making the situation a mistake made somewhere.

    I don't keep more than a checklist of responsibilities in my head, so I wouldn't say use such colorful language as "as good as gold" but humanly possible, and when under the stress of many promises we show our more human side. I sear with frustration with myself when a promise is forgotten, but I try not to over react too much as I blame myself.

    If I give you my word you won't have to put any more thought into it. It really is a given that I will honor my commitment.
