ISTJ Personality 

The ISTJ Personality is all about fulfilling their honorable duties. The ISTJ is a very hard working and dedicated type. They are very responsible and are one of the backbones of many societies. They strive to do their best and uphold traditions and beliefs that have gotten their families and communities through many generations. The ISTJ can be a bit of a traditionalist, which makes them quite stubborn and resistant to change. This can be a problem if they are not able to adapt to the changing world around them. However, the ISTJ is smart enough to grasp how things are moving, and will likely be intelligent enough to survive whatever setbacks or changes they experience. They can be a bit understated in their appearance, but they tend to be constantly providing for their families. They can get the tedious work done that doesn’t get enough praise, and they are usually willing to do it without recognition. However, that doesn’t mean they should be taken for granted. No, the ISTJ would be sorely missed if they weren’t around making sure everything is working like a well oiled machine. The ISTJ has a quiet demeanor and earns respect from others by showing up every day. They are big on integrity, and believe doing the right thing the right way is the noble thing to do, even if it doesn’t get the fanfare and recognition it deserves. The ISTJ may need to recognize that others are not as reliable and steadfast as them, and allow some flexibility and compassion to others that can’t reach or attain their high standards.
