Understanding Logistician Personality



Cognitive Functions

Based upon the Jungian personality theory, the test suggests that personality is composed of a number of different cognitive functions. These functions can be focused primarily outward (extraverted) or inward (introverted). Each of these functions relate to how people perceive the world and make decisions.

The dominant function is the most prominent aspect of personality, while the auxiliary function plays a supporting role. The tertiary function has a weaker influence, but can become more apparent when a person is under stress. The inferior function is primarily unconscious and is often a point of weakness.

Developing this aspect can help people form a more balanced personality.

Inferior: Introverted Sensing

  • Introverted sensors are focused on the present moment, taking in an abundance of information about their surroundings.
  • They also have vivid memories of the past and rely on the memories of these experiences to form expectations for the future.

Inferior: Extraverted Thinking

  • They are logical and efficient. They enjoy looking for rational explanations for events.
  • They prefer to focus on the details rather than thinking about abstract information.
  • Being efficient and productive is important for people with this personality type. They appreciate knowledge that has immediate, practical applications.
  • They make decisions based on logic and objective data rather than personal feelings

Inferior: Introverted Feeling

  • As they make judgments, They often make personal interpretations based on their internal of values.
  • This is often described as an "instinct" or "gut feeling" about a situation. ISTJ might make a decision based on logic, only to have this feeling kick in telling them to trust their feelings rather than just the facts.

Inferior: Extraverted Intuition

  • This aspect of personality enjoys new ideas and experiences.
  • This is the weakest part of the They personality, but developing this function can sometimes lead to a more balanced personality.


In case of Personal Relationship

  • They prefer spending time alone or with small groups of close friends.
  • People with this personality type are usually very loyal and devoted to family and friends but may struggle to understand their own emotions and the feelings of others.
  • They can be quite reserved and sometimes fail to pick up on the emotional signals given by other people.
  • However, once they are close to a person and develop an understanding of that persons feelings and needs, they will expend a great deal of effort toward supporting those needs.

Friendship Tips

  • They tend to get along best with friends who are similar to themselves.
  • While they tend to be a bit serious and by the book, they do like to have fun.
  • They might not be willing to jump into new things, but you can be a great friend by helping them pursue hobbies and activities that they enjoy.

Parental Tips

  • ISTJ parents tend to be quite focused on tradition and are good at providing security and stability to their children.
  • Children of ISTJ parents often find that their parents will treat them with care and respect and that they also expect the same treatment in return.
  • Parents of ISTJ children will find that providing consistency can help their children feel more secure.
  • Sticking to routines, introducing change slowly, and giving them time to adjust to new situations are all ways to help an ISTJ child.

Relationship Tips

  • While They may experience deep feelings, they often struggle to show that side of themselves in romantic relationships.
  • You can be an understanding partner by not expecting them to bare their soul to you right off the bat.
  • Sometimes it may seem that your partner is not considering your feelings, but you can help them see your side by rationally presenting facts and logical explanations for your side of the argument.

If they are into you

  • It might take them a while to ask you out, but they will.
  • And when they do, they’ll put a surprising (and touching) amount of effort into that first date.
  • If they take you to a museum, for example, you’d better believe they’ve already read the exhibition catalog and can quote it verbatim.
