Logistician (ISTJ) - CAPRICORN

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.

Logistician/Capricorn enjoy taking responsibility for their actions, and take pride in the work they do – when working towards a goal, they hold back none of their time and energy completing each relevant task with accuracy and patience. They are steady, productive contributors. Typical Logistician/Capricorn know just where they belong in life, and want to understand how they can participate in established organizations and systems. They concern themselves with maintaining the social order and making sure that standards are met. They are incredibly pragmatic. They are rule followers with a highly developed moral compass. From a young age it is impressed upon them that their whole sense of worth and meaning is based on their ability to hunker down and force their way to the finish. This turns them into achievement junkies. Their drive to succeed is a reflection of their fear of failure.

They tend to be very goal orientated and are one of the most self-disciplined personality combos. Many Logistician/ Capricorn find it natural to set goals, calculate their path to them, and stick to them, and they will work long hard hours to complete what they set out to do. They are known for being extremely disciplined and patient, keeping their eye on the long-term prize. They have the understanding that what they seek is not won in a day, but rather, a long journey; one that takes commitment and dedication. They are very loyal, faithful, and dependable. They place great importance on honesty and integrity. They are "good citizens" who can be depended on to do the right thing for their families and communities. While they generally take things very seriously, they also usually have an offbeat sense of humor and can be a lot of fun - especially at family or work-related gatherings.

They are traditional and expect things to be done in a certain way. In the household, they would like to keep their things in an organised fashion, and give clear standards to their partners and children about things should be done around the house. For example, they expect their partners to keep their shoes in a certain way, or tidy up and organise their desk with a particular system. Partners who are more spontaneous may find this trait suffocating, even as they appreciate the neat and tidy household they get to return to all the time. As with most things in their life, they’re are quite cautious about their love lives. They tend to guard their heart quite strongly and take a while to get close to. Many will even attempt to mask their feelings as aloofness as they attempt to calculate and analyze the emotional risks of getting into a relationship. However, they are well worth the wait, as once they let down their guard and are able to establish a sense of security, they can make great partners who work heard at their relationships. With love, they work at the relationship just like any other goal, and make extremely loyal and devoted partners.

People of this type have a very clear command of time and priorities. They are quite skilled in planning, organizing, mapping out schedules and following agendas. They excel in time management, are punctual (and demand the same of others) and consistently meet their deadlines. They notice holes, gaps, errors that broader thinkers don’t. They like facts, details and numbers without the emotional or interpretive fluff. And they don’t take facts or information for granted, nor do they rely on it simply because someone else said so. They will check things out for themselves, meticulously.
