In an effort to ensure that I cover all of the basis, before I move into the Intuitive Types, I’d like to do a couple of posts just recapping or highlight the sensors. Today I highlight the SJs.
SJs are people with cognitive preferences that cause them to focus on such things as comfort, safety, dependability, tradition, structure and doing what they perceive to be “right” or the accepted way of doing things.
SJs are responsible for keeping family traditions alive, for keeping order in society and for maintaining stability. They are the anchors of the human race. SJs, the world truly NEEDS you!
Here are the SJ cognitive preferences:
ESTJ-are hard-working, responsible, efficient people who have a natural talent for overseeing.
Te-hero means that ESTJs are aware of the proper way of doing things, efficient and structured.
Si-parent means they are responsible, dependable, safety-focused and will ensure comfort or a personally pleasing sensory experience. They are collectors of data in some instances. For example, an ESTJ who is concerned with a health issue will collect loads of information on that issue.
Ne-in the child position means they have a witty cooky streak that shows up in childlike playfulness at times.
Fi-in the aspirational or inferior position means they know their values but may be unaware of the values of others, believing that what they value is universally what others should also value.
ISTJ-are careful, thorough, conscientious, careful and usually filled with knowledge.
Si-hero means that ISTJs are well aware of what brings comfort and familiarity is comforting to them. It also means they are collectors of information, data and sometimes, “stuff.”
Te-parent means that ISTJs are responsible to do things the way they “should be done” and that they look to the experts in whatever field of interest they have. ISTJs always have a systematic way of doing things.
Fi-in the child position means that the ISTJ has a childlike pure awareness of what they believe and value. However, they may be completely unaware of societal norms and values.
Ne-in the aspiring position means that the ISTJ has an off-beat sense of humor and can be surprisingly witty at times and inventive.
ESFJ–they provide and ensure that the physical needs of others are met. They seek to please those around them and usually work hard and are altruistic.
Fe-in the hero position means that ESFJs are keenly aware of what those around them value.
Si-in the parent positions means that ESFJs will seek to maintain comfort in social situations and in the family.
Ne-in the child position means that they have a pure desire to give others what they want.
Ti-in this position means that they are aware of what they think but not of what others think. It also means that they MUST be listened to.
ISFJ-kind-hearted, care-taking, loving, gentle individuals who need family structure and someone or some thing to take care of.
Si-in the hero position means that ISFJs recall the past, collect data and seek comfort.
Fe-in the parent position means that ISFJs are aware of what others value and desire to uphold those values. That’s why family image is so important to them.
Ti-in the child position means they have a pure, child-like ability to analyze a thing to its basic core.
Ne-in the aspiration position means that they anticipate what others are wanting or what their intentions are. It also means that they may have some uncanny insights (sometimes dead on accurate and sometimes just accusing) into what others are intending to do.
