ISTJ: Inspectors

ISTJs are dependable pillars of strength; both loyal and responsible. ISTJs make punctuality and devotion their watchwords thereby showcasing their trustworthiness and proving they have all the necessary ingredients for success in business. They feel compelled to preserve and protect past ways of doing things and they guard traditions and conventions. Having a keen sense of right and wrong, ISTJs like to ensure guidelines and rules are being followed. They focus on details and facts and believe that standards should be maintained. ISTJs are most happy when things go according to plan, when everyone is aware of their duties and when everyone benefits. They are most comfortable when people follow established procedures and are not tolerant of people making their own rules; in such cases they make it abundantly clear what they expect those rules to be.
