Fictional ISTJ's

I stole the idea from the ISTP forum. :crazy:

So what are some good fictional ISTJ's? Can you relate to any of em? Post a list of ISTJ's that are fictional, that you know of.

I think I read somewhere, Holden Caulfield from Salingers Catcher In The Rye was a ISTJ. I can kind of believe it, yes he was very "emotional". But he did keep it to himself a lot. And a lot of the things he thought, I have as well.

My personal favorite:

Bruce Wayne, a.k.a. Batman (movie)


It drives INTJs up the wall that this is listed by more than one source since they wish to claim him. I'm told he's an INTJ in the comics.

Oh and don't forget Obi-wan Kenobi!
Doesn't drive me up the walls lol, you can have him.

Hmm lets see, fictional istjs, squall from ff8 might be one.

I don't think Eeyore is an ISTJ at all (even though he is quoted as being an ISTJ on several sites) - he seems a likely Introverted NF.

Hank Hill and Principal Skinner are probably the best, most well known examples of ISTJ in fictional works.

Hiring Jason Bourne via the Myers-Briggs Assessment...

Michael at The Career Revolution has a cool breakdown of HR considerations if you are employing Jason Bourne from the Bourne Ultimatum. One caught my eye with special interest - Pre-employment testing, and how you would figure out if Bourne was a fit for your organization.
My solution? Let's figure out if Jason Bourne would be a good match for your team via the tool you know
and love - the Myers-Briggs test. The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) is a personality questionnaire designed to identify certain psychological differences according to the typological theories of Carl Gustav Jung as published in his 1921 book Psychological Types. More importantly, it has a strong following with corporate types as they try and figure out who's the best fit for their team...
Here are the Myers-Briggs determinations we have to make to judge if Bourne will play nice with the other assassins in your organizations:
-Introvert or Extrovert? Can a spy on the run afford to be an extrovert? This one is the easy one, so the first letter in his Myers-Briggs is "I"...
-Sensing or Intuition? Bourne trusts only the information he can sense through his tuned up senses. Don't be fooled that he is acting on Intution. He's a cyborg, and it's all about what he can validate. Second letter is an "S"....
-Thinking or Feeling? Bourne measures decisions by what is reasonable, logical, causal, consistent and matching a given set of rules. So thinking it is, and he's a "T"...
-Judging or Perceiving? Like most spys, Bourne is happy to leave matters open, for further input; he may want to leave finishing a task until close to the deadline, and be energized by a late rush of information and ideas; and he is ready to change plans if new information comes along. "P" it is...
Add it all up and what do you have? An ISTP. What's that mean? From the site typelogic:
"Like their fellow SPs, ISTPs are fundamentally Performers (note the capital 'P' :)), but as Ts their areas of interest tend to be mechanical rather than artistic like those of ISFPs, and unlike most ESPs they do not present an impression of constant activity. On the contrary, they lie dormant, saving their energy until a project or an adventure worthy of their time comes along--and then they launch themselves at it. The apparently frenzied state that inevitably ensues is actually much more controlled than it appears--ISTPs always seem to know what they're doing when it comes to physical or mechanical obstacles--but the whole chain of events presents a confusing and paradoxical picture to an outsider."
That sounds like Bourne. Got a place on your Account Management team for him? He's looking for his next gig....

okay... is he fictional dude?
The cherry tree story is a fiction. Fiction stories contain fictional characters. Young George Washington is a character in the cherry tree story. Therefore that George in that story is fictional. :laughing:

The real George however, I dunno who the heck is he.
