Intro to ISTJ type

The main idea of knowing your MBTI type is that your raised self-awareness means you can match your behavioural responses:

  • To work more effectively on a team, especially in terms of dealing with conflict.
  • You can also communicate more effectively if you have a better idea of how people process what you tell them.

How to spot the ISTJs at work

  • An ISTJ is a practical, logical, and dedicated individual. They take responsibility for their action and pride in the work they do. They prefer analyzing over making assumptions.
  • Tradition, stability, and security are their main values. They are calm, strong-willed, and responsible, but they can also be judgmental and stubborn.
  • Logisticians have strong opinions and aren’t afraid to share them.
  • Because of all of this, they would thrive in career paths like law, military, and police.
  • ISTJs’ preferred work environment has clearly defined rules, structure, and hierarchy. They’re hard-working, dependable, and like having responsibilities, which makes them great employees.
  • Logisticians function best when they work in peace, usually by themselves. No matter what task you give them, they’ll do their job seriously and responsibly. They are punctual and always respect deadlines. However, they can be sensitive to criticism.

ISTJ Productivity Tips

  1. Logisticians are naturally very productive and rarely need additional motivation to get things done. You may not do your best if your work environment is too stressful, as you crave security and tranquility; in that case, these are the things you can do:
  2. Find the right playlist. The one that’s calming, doesn’t distract you, and helps you stay productive.
  3. Have a neat, decluttered workspace. Living in a mess can add even more stress.
  4. Work on adapting to changes. Logisticians often don’t like changes very much, but they’re an unavoidable part of life. Try to remember that the only constant thing in life is change and try not stressing out about stressing out.
  5. Take meditation or mindfulness breaks. Not only that they will help you stay focused, but they will also keep you calm in a stressful work environment.
  6. Focus on 3 important things each day. If you manage to do more than those 3 things, great! But if not, that’s okay: the priority is to do those top 3 tasks for each day.

Remote team personality type ISTJ

How to spot the MBTI ISTJ’s in a remote team?

  • ISTJ’s are dutiful doers who appreciate clarity, love routines, and believe in values like honour, hard work, and social responsibility.
  • Typically, ISTJs are quiet, reserved, and reliable.
  • A typical example is The Queen.



  • Use your experience to design a practical home working routine.
  • Establish a dedicated home office space or working area that you can keep quiet and free
    from interruption.
  • Create a daily schedule that balances work tasks with household chores.
  • Make sure you have all the tools and systems you need to work remotely. Ask for training if you need it.
  • If you don’t get a response to an important email or IM, follow it up. Not everyone checks notifications as thoroughly as you do.
  • If you’re new to working from home, take some time to develop a routine that works for you and your family (or anyone else who is important to you).
  • Set realistic expectations for yourself and others. Create a structure that allows you to meet your own practical needs and the needs of others.
  • Check in with family members and colleagues to find out what support they need from you.
  • Create a dedicated home office or working area where you won’t be interrupted by pets, family, or housemates.

ISTJ Well-Being Tips

  • When stressed, you may find yourself tired or overwhelmed by feelings of inadequacy.
  • Emotions in general stress you out because they make it difficult to pinpoint what’s important in a given situation.
  • You may be less responsive in conversations and blunter than usual, particularly when you feel like others aren’t meeting your standards.
  • Hence may worry about ominous possibilities and feel an urgent need to make movement towards a goal.

Best ways to work with ISTJ types? 

  • According to the MBTI, ISTJ’s are incredibly well organized, which is a major asset in a remote working environment.
  • ISTJs don’t need much management or checking up on, just email them a to-do list at the start of the week.
  • You can always trust ISTJs to quietly get on with whatever the day’s work entails.
  • Also, the ISTJ personality type in your team will excel at streamlining any shared space online, from Dropbox to Google Docs.

What do most ISTJs enjoy doing?

  • paying attention to the things around them.
  • visiting a place you used to go to.
  • walking around mindfully and calmly.

ISTJ First Impressions

  • You’re usually a natural voice of reason on any team.
  • At first glance, people tend to find you serious but friendly, calm, and insightful.
  • Because of your steady work ethic and attention to detail, people may rely on you as a bastion of stability and common sense.
  • You’re cordial with people but everyone also knows where they stand with you.
  • Because you give off a somewhat formal air, it’s easy for others to respect your confidence and expertise.
  • You consider the practical implications before making any moves, which gives people confidence that things will be handled in a logical manner.
