ISTJs can be recognized by the simple fact that they will be infinitely better at storing facts than you, while remaining unable to process them into larger truths. While this turns them into an impressive storehouse of knowledge (especially dates and chemical equations, which tend to stick to the ISTJ like Elmer’s Glue Papier-mâché), don’t rely on the ISTJ to strike out creatively. (Then again, don’t rely on anyone, except the occasional INT. And maybe an ISFJ. Or perhaps an INF…. On second thought, fine, rely on a few people. Just remember: The fewer humans you require to function at full capacity, the better. More people will lower your capacity, not increase it.)
Anyways, back to ISTJs. Continue reading ISTJs and Other (non)Sense Factories
Greetings, fellow INTPs (and all you [other] homo sapiens). I’m back with a new installment of The INTP’s Guide to Everyone Else. I know I can make all the excuses in the world trying to justify my absence from the MBTI segment of my blog (I lost some of my comic drawings, school got too busy, I couldn’t muster the energy to write), but I’m pretty sure you don’t want to hear them. I promised I’d deliver content weekly, and, well, I didn’t. What can I say…. I’m an INTP.
Anyways, I’ve returned, and it’s finally time to take a look at ISTPs.
ISTPs are theoretically similar to you. However, as always, be guarded in your attempts to turn theory into practice, because inconsistencies increase with the number of variables. When it comes to humans, the variables are infinite.
You may find that ISTPs share your idea processing and brainstorming traits while being a bit more practically inclined Continue reading ISTPs and Other Fixer-Uppers
I say INTP because that’s my type, but I’m pretty sure all introverts feel this way sometimes….
INFJs can range from refreshingly unconventional to inhumanly strange. It’s really hard to pinpoint them because they’re just so… different. Even for people.
The easiest way to spot an INFJ is to find their cause. Pretty much all INFJs have some grand cause they see as their mission in life – whether its educating others, spreading the joy of music, protecting kids from abuse, or campaigning for the environment. INFJs stick to their cause like burrs, and it is this cause that ends up defining a lot of who they are… for better or worse. Continue reading INFJs and other genuinely decent persons
In addition to my semi regular Last Week’s Poetry feature, and my temporary series, The INTP’s Guide to Everyone Else, I’ve decided to start posting a series of comics I’ve been working on for the past few months. It’s another Myers-Briggs inspired thing, and I’ve decided to call it “Introverts Galore.” Because introverts. Lots of them.
Look for these comics on Sunday, and if you like what you see, please feel free to like, share, and/or comment. I ‘preciate it.
