Logistician (ISTJ) - LEO

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/Leo tend to always be busy, no matter the need for their employment. They are ambitious, creative and optimistic and once they dedicate to their work, they will do everything just right. The best possible situation they can find themselves in is to be their own bosses or manage others with as little control from their superiors as possible. Although money comes easy to them, they spend it less responsibly than some other Logistician combos. Extremely generous, they could provide many friends with financial help, supporting them through bad times. Although this doesn't always prove to be wise, it always makes them feel good.

They are task-oriented, efficient and responsible, ensuring that all tasks given to them are done properly and completed within stipulated deadlines. They enjoy a level of certainty, organization and predictability in their work, and do not like changes to their routines. Logical and straightforward, they like to keep their emotions and personal feelings aside when working. They do not welcome interruptions to their work, especially when it has nothing to do with the task at hand. In communicating a direction, they are specific and concrete; distributing roles and responsibilities equitably. However, they can miss the forest for the trees when they do set a direction. Sometimes, they may be so distracted by the short-term that they do not consider the long-term consequences of daily tasks and actions.

Ina relationship they always need to feel appreciated and loved, and if they do, they return that love generously. If they are ignored or left to feel unappreciated, they will feel very hurt. Breakups and divorce are not just painful emotional losses, but also serious blows to their ego. The deep emotional impact a breakup can cause them is therefore twofold - they take it as a personal failure above all. Most Logistician/Leos will do everything they can to avoid that outcome. Their sense of pride can also mean that they have a problem with admitting when they are wrong. It’s hard for them to say sorry. On the other hand, when their partners have wronged them, they forgive quite easily, so long as the apology is sincere. They are not the type to hold grudges, and fall sometimes much too easily to flattery. They generally are accepting of everyone around them, and cultivate strong and long-lasting relationships.

Their sense of honor is intense, they hold both themselves and others to a very high standard, and they are deeply wounded when someone breaks that code. There is an ingrained need for everyone to acknowledge and validate their existence. This can lead to what can be labeled as narcissistic or absolutist behavior that borders on the absurd. They hate being told what to do, but if you can get them to listen, they can usually be persuaded—especially if you make them feel like it was what they wanted all along. But they’ll always secretly resent that they didn’t reach this conclusion alone. They don’t take kindly to people who don’t respect them.
