Clayton Geoffreys, who interestingly enough doesn't want to reveal his MBTI personality type either, has written this short introduction to the ISTJ personality (the dependable but boring worker-ant or, more formally, The Inspector). You can probably find the same information free on the web, but if you want everything under one cover and also like to have a short introduction to the MBTI system itself, this could be what you are looking for – at least if you're an ISTJ or absolutely need to understand one! In order to fully understand Myers-Briggs, it's important to remember that some terms are used in slightly unfamiliar ways. Thus, “Judging” doesn't necessarily mean judgmental. Nor does “Introverted” necessarily mean anti-social, and I suppose you could be “Extroverted” according to this system without being an annoying braggart in colorful dress.
From the top of my head, I think Geoffreys nails the ISTJ relatively well, both the positives and negatives. He never mentions the a-word, but astrologically speaking, I would say that ISTJ is closest to Capricorn. On one point Mr Geoffreys reveals that he, at any rate, can't possibly be an ISTJ: he claims that The Inspector should enter a romantic relationship with the Performer (ESFP) or the Promoter (ESTP). Astrologically speaking, that would be like pairing a Capricorn with a Leo or Sagittarius! Ahem, baaaad idea…
As for the MBTI not being scientific according to the ISTJ-like standards of your local psychiatrist guild (the one with all the prescriptions for happy pills), why does it have to be? Surely, a personality test is good if it helps you understand yourself and, horror of horrors, improve? What other criteria for “truth” can there possibly be in a subjective endeavor such as this…?
