Very strong work ethic, from nature and nurture.Curious to see what ISTJ work ethic is overall as it is not composed of strictly Enneagram 1's, but seems to include some 5's and 9's as well.
My work ethic is born out of debt. Where does your will to work come from?

A guy that works with me thinks it's funny he has to regularly remind me it's lunch time :crazy:I selected the first choice. For me, I prefer staying really busy all day long. If I've got enough work and goals to accomplish, I'll work from 6 a.m. until 10 p.m. with almost no let up. And that's on my day off! :shocked::crazy:
I have been accused of the same when I was working in production. Actually there were times I slept in the first aid room on the couch or slept in my car in the parking lot instead of driving back and forth to my home, I lived 45 minutes away, each way, at the time.A guy that works with me thinks it's funny he has to regularly remind me it's lunch time :crazy:
Years ago when we were REALLY busy all the time, coworkers accused me of having a cot behind my machine roud:
Oh yeah.:laughing: I completely agree with this. In fact, almost any one of these is enough to torpedo any desire to help someone.To elaborate on what I posted previously:
*IF* it is important to me, then I will be relentless in my efforts (school, etc.). However, as I have gotten older, I have discovered that if I am not acknowledged in some fashion for what I do (for instance, at work) or if my efforts are basically ignored repeatedly (IOW, if someone that isn't skilled in the areas that I am decides to usurp my responsibilities and THEN wonder why the job isn't done correctly and wants me to bail them out at the last second), then I am disinclined to work myself to the bone in those areas.
1. You ignored my efforts.
2. You thought your way was better and did not bother to consult me on my opinion.
3. You usurped my responsibility and did the job willy-nilly.
4. You then realized you did it horribly.
5. Your deadline was fast approaching.
6. You wanted me to bail you out at the last second, because you took me for granted and assumed that I would in fact bail you out.
The definition of insanity is continuing to do the same thing repeatedly and expecting the same result. I got tired of it, so I put my foot down and said NO. Consequently, that particular area is an eyesore; however, I have made it perfectly clear to TPTB WHY it is in the condition that it is in, and have informed said PTB that if I am once again granted the proper authority to do this particular job AND enforce my authority in this area, it will once again be done to my specifications and my satisfaction. I have not yet heard anything back, so I must assume that TPTB are okay with this area remaining in the condition that it is in. Therefore, I refuse to "be insane".
