Let’s dissect the cast of characters that wedge themselves into our memories. Their similarities to each other, and to us.
If you put the following characters in a room together, you could depend on them to sprinkle the air with facts and details, and perhaps they’d share a bit about a grudge they bear. Ordered minds filling a tidy space.
- Carson, Downton Abbey
- Marilla Cuthbert, Anne of Green Gables
- Hermione, Harry Potter
- Spock, Star Trek
- “The business of life is the acquisition of memories. In the end, that’s all there is.” -Carson
- “And as for Christian virtue: making a little wine for a refreshment is far less sinful than meddling in other people’s affairs!” -Marilla
- “I’m hoping to do some good in the world!” -Hermione
- “Precisely.” -Spock
Can you name additional book or movie characters that exude practicality, dependability, logic, and loyalty? Do you see yourself in any of these ISTJ characters?
