    Oh wow! Some members of my extended family are in jobs within that field (social work etc). Ugh also with all the austerity measures put in place by a certain political party down south (not voted for by Scotland) I'm willing to bet there is a very, unfortunate, high demand for this sort of help (I honestly don't want to start a political discussion though)!

    I work as an Electrical Engineer. The company I work for have a contract for Scottish Water at the moment for a large number of their plants. Really enjoy it!

Currently watching Game of Thrones together, because well I guess that's what everyone's doing out here in the States. LOL I have to close my eyes for half of it though because of the violence but I can get into the character building and relationships.
    Hulu - I've never heard of that. I'll need to check that out too. I've heard of "The Americans" but never looked into it. Game of Thrones is a show me an ISTJ partner keep meaning to get into (for the same reason as you) but it's yet to happen. At times we feel like we are the only people who have never watched it.

    On this topic, one thing that has become consistent is every time I switch my TV on now, it'll recommend a YouTube video on something relating to personality types. Recent suggestion:

    ISTJ - The Duty Fulfillers

    Late to the party, but there are people in my town that leave their lights up all year, and then just turn them on during the holiday season. I don't do decorations myself, but if other people want to, that's fine with me.

    The exception is that a couple of years ago, a former supervisor suggested that I alter the employee directory on the wall. Instead of his real name, I substituted "E. Scrooge" for the entire month of December - again, this was at his request.

    ... and they say that xSTJ's have no sense of humor. :-)

    One of my best mates is an ISTJ - you should see some of the memes he shares with me on a near daily basis

    I friggin love ISTJs, and get on fine too with ESTJs too. My partner (I really should just say Husband lol) is an ISTJ and of course the best friend I mentioned above. I love their ability to approach a situation logically and their amazing ability to take on confrontation, especially when it for a good cause.

    You know it's been interesting with the ISTJ & ESTJs in my life. I get along with them quite well until we don't. My MIL is an ISTJ and her husband is an ESTJ. We were all really cool and fine basically until we had kids. Now the ESTJ father in law is just super rigid in his old school parenting ways and I think coupled with his black and white / clear "right and wrong" look on things it makes it quite a challenge. Like when it was just he rules his life and I rule my realm it was fine but now that he's trying to dabble his "right/wrong" view of life into my realm it's causing quite a bit of friction. Also since my husband is an INTP, there's just a big disconnect between his parents and him sometimes and then I try to fill that awkward gap of making everyone get along but then there's just too much there to really bridge. Gah!

    Another ESTJ who I know well is also difficult for me since he's dating my friend who is a super sweet girl. He's so focused on his end goal of work that he never pauses to do anything romantic for her. He doesn't like to "indulge" in her feelings and would rather just kind of steam role past all of it and she'll be there trying to talk to him about her emotions / an argument they had and he'll feel like it should already be over and let's move on. Like it's taking up his precious time away from his long to do list of other things. Again, I get where it comes from personality wise plus of course everyone's own individual histories but it's just hard for me to watch. Like yes, as an ESFJ I can get into my to-do list moments and sometimes see things as right/wrong etc. but I feel like in the end I can still always pull the breaks when I see what it's doing to the group. Sometimes I feel like the ESTJs I know personally in my life don't really have that emergency break. They kind of just keep plowing forward regardless of fatalities. The weird part is I can get along great with them and do admire some of their organizational abilities and all else but then when I feel like it hurts other people without them even noticing is when I kind of feel like the line is drawn for me. I just can't go there with them.

    This sounds like a slightly similar situation to what one of my friends is going through. Her in-laws (no idea what personality type they are) are both a little old-fashioned. She and her husband are both engineers. They have always been a bit weird with her because she is a woman who is in a professional career the same as her husband (their son). They seem to think she should really be at home ensuring her husband has a hot meal on the table every night lol and looking after the kids. Some off-cuff comments have been made before which has caused a bit of friction between her and them.
