The Duty Fulfiller
ISTJs are quiet, serious, responsible, sensible, patient, conservative, loyal and steadfast--maintainers of society's time-honored traditions and institutions. This "Rock of Gibraltar" type needs to be needed and readily takes on a parental role, in their working relationships, as well as with friends and family. They often settle in occupations in law enforcement or government, teaching, banking and finance, religious service or administration, or business. They are ideally suited to positions in bureaucratic organizations, and they naturally adapt to playing the roles assigned to them--whether as leaders or followers. ISTJs function well in jobs requiring accurate record keeping of facts and figures. They are the enforcers of law, policy, procedure, schedules and principles, and they exert a stabilizing effect on society. Hard work, honesty, politeness, timeliness and faithfulness to family, friends and country are foremost among the ISTJ's honored values. They tend to resist unnecessary change in all aspects of their lives and they see most innovation as disruptive.
The ISTJ's word is as good as gold, and they honor their commitments faithfully. They believe that to do otherwise would be nothing less than a breach of honor and trustworthiness. 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. ISTJs are driven to fulfill their responsibilities and duties, and will do so with tireless effort. They will do their best to meet the obligations presented by the different relationship roles which they play during their lives, i.e. spouse, parent, offspring, etc. They may have difficulty showing warmth, but they frequently feel it in abundance, and most develop the ability to show it through sheer effort. If nothing else, the ISTJ holds the gold medal of all the personality types for Effort. They will put forth tremendous amounts of effort to accomplish goals which are important to them. If healthy relationships are among these goals, you can bet that the ISTJ will do everything that they can to foster and maintain healthy relationships.
