Logistician (ISTJ) - CANCER

Who is a Logistician (ISTJ)?

Logisticians are individuals with the Introverted, Sensing, Thinking and Judging personality traits. They tend to be quiet and reserved people with a strong sense of duty. Organized and methodical in their approach, logisticians generally succeed at any task given to them.

When a job needs to get done, a Logistician/Cancer will roll their sleeves up and finish it successfully. If they are left alone to work, they usually perform better than when surrounded by other people, loyal to their employer and focused on the task. They will have great careers as nurses, housekeepers, gardeners, politicians and decorators. For these people, security and money are of great importance and stand for the real reason they work as much as they do. They easily earn money and aren't used to spending it all in one day. It is their goal to save, invest, and watch their investments grow daily. Resourceful and good at managing time and finances, this is a personality combo that is often in charge of all money in the household, keeping their partner or other family members under control.

They’re extremely dependable on following through with things which he or she has promised. For this reason, they sometimes get more and more work piled on them. Because they have such a strong sense of duty, they may have a difficult time saying "no" when they are given more work than they can reasonably handle. For this reason, they often work long hours, and may be unwittingly taken advantage of. They are homebodies. They like the comfort of the familiar. They don’t like change. They are drawn to stability and routine. They like to know what is expected. They tend to be less experimental than other personality combos. They have an attraction to the past. They like to keep traditions alive. They like art that reminds them of a different time. They love old stories, or old art forms. Predictable environments make them feel comfortable. They like to know what’s going to happen. They like to feel that they’re part of a bigger plan. They don’t like surprises.

This personality combo is a dedicated, ready to make many unhealthy compromises only to keep their image of a family going, and could choose partners who are in a way selfish of abusive. Shared responsibility and a life together with their partner makes them feel secure and ready for the next step in life, no matter if it is a child, a new job, or simply a cleanup in the field of friendships and relationships that became obsolete or hurtful. In love with children, parenthood, marriage and traditional values, they can still be misguided by people they admire and trust into changing their honest approach to a modern one that doesn't fit their true personality. Compassion and understanding that they chose to send your way shouldn't ever be taken for granted. They are hardworking and dependable partners who are committed to making their relationship work.

These people forgive, but they never forget. Suffering from long ago leaves them with a scar. They can linger and return to that scar time and time again, remembering that pain and reopening the wound. When they suffer, they tend to do so alone - searching for safety again in the comfort of their own solitude.
