For those who don’t know, depending on the personality types of Myers-Briggs, there are 16 different types and one of them is much nicer than the others. This too nice personality type is the ISTJ.
While being too nice doesn’t seem like a good thing, it is. Being an ISTJ is a wonderful thing. ISTJ is synonymous with introversion, sensing, thinking, and judging. These are the most important traits of this personality type.
This type of personality is considered to be the most abundant and represents around thirteen percent of the population. People with this personality are very forgiving and always take responsibility for themselves and their actions. Below is a list of traits that you may need to indicate that you are an ISTJ.
14 signs that you may belong to the best personality type:
1. You base everything on facts:
ISTJs are very fact-based. They spend a lot of time researching and making sure everything is aligned. They are constantly learning and growing in general.
2. You don’t do well with change:
ISTJs do not do well with change. They spend all their time trying to avoid it. They are also unable to manage their imperfections.

4. You don’t make many assumptions:
ISTJs are, as mentioned above, very fact-oriented. They assume nothing of which they do not know the facts. They are more than aware that opinions are opinions and the facts are something completely different.
5. You enjoy spending time alone or with very few people:
ISTJs are much more introverted than people think. They like to spend a lot of time alone and if they spend time with friends, they don’t have much. They keep a small circle of people in their lives.
6. You keep your calm in most situations:

11. You don’t deal well with ignorance:
When people refuse to accept the facts or continue to be ignorant of the truth, the ISTJ becomes very irritated. They don’t spend their time empowering people like this and they avoid them at all costs. ISTJs are very simple people.
