Thank you to Mike for the Question
Rules: “Prescribed guide for how to behave.”
This question is a tricky one, but after going into my personal life, a lot of my friends are ISFJ’s, and they are probably the biggest rule followers I know. This is proven true as one of the most known career choices for an ISFJ is an administrator.
Introverts are more likely to think before they act, compared with extroverts. They think about the consequences before they occur, and are more stable than extroverts, less likely to take risks. This clearly shows that introverts are more likely to follow rules than extroverts.
This part is the most obvious to evaluate. Intuitive people think outside the box; they see more then what’s actually there. They see that there are always options, always choices. Sensors feel like rules are set in stone and are almost brainwashed into following them, like they have no other option. They don’t see any other alternatives. Sensors are certainly more inclined to follow the rules in society than intuitive people.
The difference between a thinker and a feeler regarding rules is small. Keeping this is mind, feelers are more likely to follow rules than thinkers due to their constant fear of what others will think. If it wasn’t for their fear of what others would think (Fe) ISFJ’s might be the most careless people in the world. However, this is not the case, and feelers are more concerned about following rules than thinkers.
This part is quite obvious. Judgers are more stable and thinking of what lies ahead in their future. Perceivers live in the moment, making decisions at the time of the event. They don’t think of the consequences, and are therefore less stable than judgers. This clearly proves that ISFJ’s are the most likely to follow the rules.
An ISFJ Poem:
My Promise Author
Each day I’ll do my best,
And I won’t do any less.
My work will always please me,
And I won’t accept a mess.
I’ll color very carefully,
My writing will be neat.
And I simply won’t be happy
‘Til my papers are complete.
I’ll always do my homework,
And I’ll try on every test.
And I won’t forget my promise —
To do my very best!
