And for the first time, I understand what he means. I want to do something, right here, right now, to shame them, to make them accountable, to show the Capitol that whatever they do or force us to do there is a part of every tribute they can’t own. That Rue was more than a piece in their Games. And so am I.

Erasing ISTJ Stereotypes

In the world of MBTI, there are unfortunately a large selection of stereotypes about all of the types that are just plain untrue. Just as stereotypes about race and social groups hinder society from growing and developing, stereotypes about the MBTI types prevent us all from growing as individuals and discovering our true type.  

Thus, I have decided to try and combat this problem in true Te fashion by disproving some stereotypes about my type, ISTJ.

(Submitted post. Want to do one for your type? Do it.)

ISTJs are boring, uncreative traditionalists.

No person or individual in this world is boring, no matter what anyone says. Everyone has a story. We all have an intriguing past. We all have a priceless present. We all have a meaningful future. Thus, claiming that a group of people with intricate and fantastical stories are boring simply because their minds cognitively function a certain way that is somewhat different from you is…well… ignorant. (Sorry for the bluntness, but the truth is the truth)

To some, people with the ISTJ type are completely uncreative and have no novel ideas. On the contrary, we have exciting ideas, but these ideas are just based on the past. Our mind is full of ideas in how to succeed based on past knowledge and experience. Sure, we are not completely brim full of crazy, random theories and proposals, but we are definitely creative and interesting in our own ways.

Take Elsa from Frozen. Everyone has been obsessing over her for over a year. She is pretty interesting with all her magic powers and backstory. She is very creative in designing her castle and figuring ways to succeed. She is a great example of an intriguing and imaginative individual. Guess what? She’s an ISTJ. 

ISTJs are rule-obsessed and never go against an organization’s established principles because we hate change.

ISTJs may seem to follow the rules just because they are there, but there is a particular reasoning behind it.  

With dominant Si, we understand how to work within a system using our past knowledge and the knowledge of others. We realize that the best way to achieve what we want is by following an organization’s rules. We aren’t mindlessly following someone’s orders. We are thoughtfully working within them in our own way.  

We aren’t afraid to make changes, as long as we know those changes will work effectively. If I feel like there is a better way to achieve something that goes against the rules, I go my own way. If some rule goes against my principles and morals (or any ISTJ’s for that matter), I stop following it and go completely against it. I voice my opinion, place my foot down, and say no to any suggestion. 

If you go against our personal morals (Fi) or expectations for success (Te), we will not respect you or follow your command. (Think Hermione going against Umbridge)  Basically, we don’t just follow commands because sometimes those commands aren’t the best way to us.

ISTJs are OCD perfectionists and workaholics who have no sense of humor.

Contrary to popular belief, ISTJs know how to relax and have a break once in a while. We can close the books, put away the papers, throw away the to-do list, and have a good time.  

Yes, I dedicate a large amount of my time to working hard and achieving success at my school work. Yes, I spend a lot of time at my job doing overtime. However, if one of my friends wants me to kick back and take a break, I will willingly take it, as long as we don’t spend an excessive time together that I experience the “energy drain” from being with people too long. (We are introverts, you know). 

At most social gatherings, I am known for my blunt, dry sense of humor. Somehow, people like it, even though it seems pretty natural to me. I want “me” time just as much as anybody does. I enjoy lazily browsing the internet, watching TV, or reading a book for leisure, and I make sure I integrate it into my life daily. 

ISTJs are also a lot more laid back with tasks than you think. If work isn’t exactly efficient, that’s okay. If the stacks of paper aren’t in perfect order, that’s fine.  I’m not going to freak out if things are not totally picture perfect. Life doesn’t work that way.

ISTJs are emotionless robots that lack any feeling whatsoever.

I can firmly and honestly say that I have an astronomical amount of emotion in my life. I have a lot of differing feelings about the vast experiences in my life.  

We all have to express emotions somehow. ISTJs express our emotions through deed instead of words, which is not typical expectation in our society. You may not realize it, but every act we do has a purpose. Most of those acts are actually to show we care about someone or something personally.

Katniss Everdeen. Enough said. Clearly, Katniss, the epitome of an ISTJ, goes through a drastic amount of emotion and feelings throughout the trilogy as she struggles with loss, traumatic memories, and the demands pushed upon her.  How does Katniss express emotions for her family and loved ones? Actions.  Volunteering as tribute for Prim. Singing for Rue. Treasuring Peeta’s pearl from the arena.  

So much emotion is present. You just have to take a deep look to see its vastness.

Rue, District 11, Hunger Games Tribute

by Krinna

“Everything beautiful brings her to mind. I see her in the yellow flowers that grow in the Meadow by my house. I see her in the mockingjays that sing in the trees.”

Katniss Week, Day 1
Katniss in ‘The Hunger Games’

“I want to do something, right here, right now, to shame them, to make them accountable, to show the Capitol that whatever they do or force us to do there is a part of every tribute they can’t own. That Rue was more than a piece in their Games. And so am I.”

Gale’s voice is in my head. His ravings against the Capitol no longer pointless, no longer to be ignored. Rue’s death has forced me to confront my own fury against the cruelty, the injustice they inflict upon us. But here, even more strongly than at home, I feel my impotence. There’s no way to take revenge on the Capitol. Is there?

Then I remember Peeta’s words on the roof. ‘Only I keep wishing I could think of a way to … to show the Capital they don’t own me. That I’m more than just a piece in their Games.’ And for the first time, I understand what he means.

I want to do something, right here, right now, to shame them, to make them accountable, to show the Capitol that whatever they do or force us to do there is a part of every tribute they can’t own. That Rue was more than a piece in their Games. And so am I.
