took a Myers-Briggs Personality Assessment Exam and results was I'm an ISTJ person..

Serious, quiet, earn success by concentration and thoroughness. Practical, orderly, matter-of-fact, logical, realistic, and dependable. See to it that everything is well-organized. Take responsibility. Make up their own minds as to what should be accomplished and work toward it steadily, regardless of protests or distractions.

Detailed Result
ISTJs direct their energy towards the inner world of ideas and information. They try to clarify concepts and information, seeking to have as clear a knowledge as possible. They often place a lot of trust in experience, but also envisage future goals providing there is a clear pathway to that goal.

What makes an ISTJ tick?
The Dominant function is the perceptive one of Sensing. Characteristics associated with this function include:
looking at information in terms of facts and details
  • Focuses more on the here and now rather than possibilities for the future
  • Feels comfortable in areas of proven experience
  • Takes a realistic approach
The perceptive Sensing function is introverted. That is, Sensing is used primarily to govern the inner world of thoughts and emotions. The ISTJ will therefore:
  • Seek to develop a realistic understanding of the world as it is, in the light of what he/she observes
  • Be pragmatic in nature, constantly learning to adapt to the world as it is now
  • Observe in a subjective way, selecting and relating facts that others would not, and seeing those facts more in terms of impressions and significance than pure fact .
The Sensing function is primarily supported by extroverted Thinking judgment, That is, Thinking judgment is used primarily to manage the outer world of actions and spoken words. This will modify the way that the Sensing is directed, by:
  • focusing the (inner world) Sensing on impersonal facts and logical options
  • tending to spot flaws and injustices
  • making decisions on the basis of logical analysis that support the ISTJ's understanding of the world.
The classic temperament of an ISTJ is Epimethean, or Melancholic, for whom a basic driving force is duty, service and the need to belong.

Contributions to the team of an ISTJ
In a team environment, the ISTJ can contribute by:
  • working hard and efficiently to complete tasks by the deadlines set
  • sorting ideas and identifying those that are most practical
  • applying a common sense approach to problem solving
  • maintaining team focus on the objective
  • contributing practical organisational skills
  • applying procedures and methodologies
  • applying relevant and realistic logical arguments
The potential ways in which an ISTJ can irritate others include:
  • focusing too much on the current task at the expense of longer term or interpersonal issues
  • not articulating his/her understanding of the situation
  • not seeing the wood for the trees
  • being too serious
  • seeming to be inflexible
  • not encouraging others to experiment or innovate
  • not promoting his/her own ideas or achievements
Personal Growth
As with all types, the ISTJ can achieve personal growth by developing all functions that are not fully developed, through actions such as:
  • articulating more of the ISTJ's own views
  • developing a long term vision, that avoids focusing on details
  • developing a greater understanding of how people feel
  • changing things on an experimental basis to see if they can be improved
  • learning to promote the ISTJ's ideas and achievements to others, recognising that others may well find them valuable
  • making decisions on the basis of how others will feel, rather than objective considerations
Recognising Stress
As stress increases, 'learned behaviour' tends to give way to the natural style, so the ISTJ will behave more according to type when under greater stress. For example, in a crisis, the ISTJ might:
  • find a place of solitude in which to think and work
  • use tried and trusted means of solving problems
  • direct or criticise others' efforts
  • use pragmatic solutions at the expense of the long term
ISTJ Careers
The jobs/occupations that have a closer fit to those with ISTJ preferences:
Doctor/health care, Librarian, Entrepreneur/self-employed, Forces, Administrator
