istj careers



If you are an ISTJ type, you will want to know what the best careers for the Logistician personality are.
After all, who wants to spend years studying or working in the wrong job? But to understand which careers suit this personality type, we should first look at the traits of an ISTJ:

Personality traits of the ISTJ type

  • Introverted
  • Responsible
  • Conservative
  • Logical
  • Methodical
  • Dependable
  • Straightforward
  • Practical
  • Serious
  • Organised
  • Conscientious
Of all the personality types, ISTJs are regarded as the most prolific, making up an estimated 13% of the population. And this is just as well because they form the backbone of society.
They are hardworking, dependable, dedicated individuals that people can rely on. If you want something done, ask an ISTJ and it will be done. ISTJs love tradition.
Likewise, they have an innate sense of duty and loyalty. They take pride in whatever they do. They never assume, instead, they use facts and figures and then analyse the situation in a practical and methodical manner.

Famous ISTJ Personalities

Sigmund Freud, Queen Elizabeth 11, Harry S. Truman, Henry Ford, Jack Nicklaus, Robert De Niro, Sting, Johnny Carson, Julia Roberts, Condoleeza Rice.

ISTJ Strengths and Weaknesses

It is important to know your strengths and weaknesses when you are choosing a career. So what are an ISTJ’s strengths?

ISTJ Strengths

  • Integrity
You won’t find a more honest person than the ISTJ personality. They pride themselves on being honest and they will be straightforward with you from day one.
In fact, you’ll always know where you are with them. They don’t see the point in playing mind games or using manipulation. They just want to get the job done.
  • Responsible
You can leave an ISTJ to get on with the job and rest assured that they will do just that. There will be no messing about and no slacking off. These people are responsible and committedto getting the job done. As a result, they require very little supervision.
  • Strong sense of duty
Need someone to stay late and help? Ask an ISTJ. Their sense of duty will always prevail. The ISTJ type has a strong sense of duty and is always loyal to those they have committed to.
  • Methodical
This personality type likes to work in an organised and methodical way. What this means is that nothing gets missed. Not only do they see the small details, but they can also see the bigger picture.
They are analytical in their approach to working and like to conduct themselves in a systematic way, working through problems or workloads until they are finished.
  • Practical
As they are analytical, so do ISTJs have a very practical side to their nature. This allows them to make exacting decisions based on logical data. They look at all the facts, the figures and the information in front of them and use it to come up with plans or a solution.

ISTJ Weaknesses

  • Always think they are right
Because ISTJs rely on facts and figures, they can get into the habit of believing they are always right. As a result, it is very hard for them to see another person’s point of view.
  • Blunt and insensitive
This personality type is straight talking and to the point, and all because they want to get the job done quickly and efficiently. It’s not that they don’t have people skills but they can be insensitive at times.
Furthermore, they believe that the truth is the best policy at all times and never tell little white lies so they won’t hurt someone’s feelings.
  • Do things ‘By the Book’
ISTJs are not natural rule breakers. Everything has to be done by the book, to the letter of the law without exception. But, as we all know, life is full of grey areas and sometimes a little wriggle room is required.

Ideal ISTJ Careers

Now that we have a clear idea of what an ISTJ is like, let’s look at ISTJ careers. What kind of careers should ISTJs be looking for?
ISTJs work best where they have dependable jobs where they can build a career, with long-term goals and a sense of security.
However, they do not work well in environments with little job security, flexible work hours, temporary work, unclear expectations and no structure.


Accountants have to get things right and this appeals to the analytical mind of the ISTJ. Maths and accountancy are an exact science and not only that but you will always need accountants.
ISTJs love the structure of this work. It suits their logical thinking and the way their minds work. They love working on clear, analytical problems with a solid outcome at the end of their work. ISTJs work very well in any number of financial services, including forensic accounting as well as tax fraud.

Bank Teller

This appeals to the ISTJ’s honest side. People working in banks have to have the utmost integrity as they are working with money on a daily basis.
They are at the frontline of transactions and have to be completely responsible for large sums of cash. Likewise, this type of employment is also a great match for ISTJs because of their sense of duty.

Civil Engineer

ISTJ’s practical nature makes civil engineering one of the best jobs for this personality type. Civil engineering requires a logical mind, capable of using data from many different sources and combining them to construct a practical solution.
Consequently, the way an ISTJ can see both minor details and the whole picture means this job is a perfect career choice.


Are you surprised to see a dentist on our list of careers for ISTJs? Well, when you consider the practical nature of the dentist perhaps it will make more sense.
Dentists use their analytical skills of detection to diagnose problems which they then fix. It is also a stable career choice with good job security.

Financial Analyst

Financial analysts look at premarket stock trading or bond performances and advise clients accordingly. It takes skill and a great analytical mind to decipher markets, but not only that, you are dealing with investments and capital from individuals or companies.
Therefore, you have a great responsibility to act with your client’s best interests at heart.


ISTJ’s sense of duty and loyalty makes them perfect candidates for military service. They are happy to follow orders, they like the fact there is a clear structure and chain of command, and the job security is second to none.

Quality Control

Any job that involves controlling or checking is ideal for this personality type. Not just because they always think they are right, but because they have a moral sense of duty to ensure whatever they are inspecting or checking is fit for purpose.
Moreover, you know that as they are responsible people you can leave them to get on with the job.

What kind of careers should ISTJs avoid?

There are some careers that are just not suitable for ISTJs.
  • Artist – This is simply too vague and abstract for the ISTJ.
  • Bartending – This is too noisy and is a very sociable job that an ISTJ would struggle with.
  • Consultancy work – This is too unpredictable for the ISTJ who prefers a 9-5 job.
  • Event Management – You might think the logistical aspect of this work would suit an ISTJ, but they would not like the unpredictable nature of this industry.
  • Freelancer – ISTJs prefer a stable and secure job where they know when their next salary cheque is coming and where from.
  • Journalism – There’s no structure to this work and it would be very difficult for the introverted ISTJ.
  • Psychology – ISTJs like exact sciences like maths. Psychology is full of theories, which bother ISTJs.
  • Public Relations – ISTJs prefer to stay out of the public eye if they can.
  • Tele-sales – Cold calling is just too unpredictable for the ISTJ. Plus they are introverts so this goes against their shy nature.
As with all career choices, knowing your personality will help you to find the right one that matches your strengths.

What Is the Gambler’s Fallacy and How It Affects Your Decisions ~ Sherrie.

What Is the Gambler’s Fallacy and How It Affects Your Decisions.

By Sherrie.

April 26, 2019


Do you make decisions based on probability, or take the chance? Maybe you have a gambler’s fallacy thought process.
If you flip a coin and do this three times, and it lands on heads, can you say the next toss will also land on heads? Your answer may well determine whether you have gambler’s fallacy or not.

What exactly is the gambler’s fallacy?

Researchers Amos Tversky and Daniel Kahnemanrationalized thought processes related to the fallacy of gambling on their research paper “Judgement under uncertainty: Heuristics and Biases” 1.
They said: “Many decisions are based on beliefs concerning the outcome of an election, the guilt of a defendant, or the future value of a dollar. These beliefs express themselves in statements such as “I think that…” or “chances are….” Or even “It is unlikely that…” and so forth.”
These statements use heuristic principles. People rely on these to reduce the complex tasks of assessing probabilities. They can also predict values to simpler judgmental operations.
Going back to the coin-flipping example. A decision maker, using rational thinking, knows the chance of another coin flip landing on heads is 50-50. However, according to Tversky and Kahneman’s definition, it’s never by chance that winning streaks happen, so we shouldn’t adopt this belief.
It’s a misconception many call the gambler’s fallacy.  Research has shown this fallacy is alive and well in a multitude of everyday scenarios. In fact, there is evidence that it can cause bias in decision making.

How can it impact your decision making?

Tversky and Kahneman’s research describes three heuristics that are used to make judgments under uncertainty. These include representativeness, availability of instances or scenarios and adjustment of an anchor.
These heuristics summarizes that Tversky and Kahneman, are highly economical and usually effective, but they lead to systematic and predictable errors. A better understanding of these heuristics and biases could improve judgments and making decisions in situations of uncertainty.
This “better understanding” is present in other recent research. This research shows how individuals might, in subjective cases, be biased against decisions.
Decision-Making under the Gambler’s Fallacy: Evidence from Asylum Judges, Loan Officers, and Baseball Umpires” by Daniel Chen, Tobias J. Moskowitz and Kelly Shue 2 is one example.
Their research found that with all else equal the judge approves the case before an asylum seeker has higher points of 3.3 % within fair situations. This was true with several settings that were different.
They noted that it is likely that a judge influences decisions related to a previous event and that with both negative or positive decisions and previous cases of similarity, The sequence lengths will be increased.
Similar happenings occurred in India. Completed research came from loan officers who were also students. Reviews of processed files were completed by the same officers. Recommendations were considered on the subject of loan approval.
Pressure was placed on true assessment at various levels. This was because of schemes faced for different reasons. The previous review of the files helped authors study how well and fair the officers made decisions. Plus, they were able to explore whether loans on recommendation were, on average, performing better.

Can circumstances affect the gambler’s fallacy?

Looking at the same research of the loan officers, a basic plan rewards loans despite the quality of these loans. Loan officers who previously rejected loans, even though incentives were good, had a small decrease in chance of approval in the review when the loan before was approved. There was little concern about bias when accuracy with strong incentives were present.
There is also evidence of this in the sporting world. The researchers looked at baseball and analyzed umpires in the major leagues. After 1.5 million pitches were analyzed, between 2008 and 2012, batters did not swing when going to bat.
The researchers then controlled many situations of the game including the speed of the pitch, count of pitches, what happens in the game, the winner, and if the home team had the batter. Whatever data that was collected was their reliance. To track speed and understand trajectories in the major league, they had to use the PITCH/system.
When a pitch was a strike, umpires rarely called the next one a strike. In fact, this was 1.5 % true. There was a bias even more if two calls were the same. The next call has a higher percentage in this bias.
When it comes to regretful calls do umpires make subsequent calls? Is it fair? Is there a gambler’s fallacy? Umpires were reluctant to make an opposing call after an incorrect call but felt comfortable with this same act after a correct decision. This was noticed by researchers.

Here are the facts as we know them

“Fairness concerns and a desire to be equally nice to two opposing teams are unlikely to explain our results.”
The gambler’s fallacy can be seen in studies by various researchers where identical situations and numbers of decisions are going in the same direction and happening close together.
Experienced decision-makers took less notice of this at all. And this could be a reason for concern.

6 Types of Moral Dilemmas in Life and How to Resolve Them ~ Alexander

6 Types of Moral Dilemmas in Life and How to Resolve Them.

By Alexander


April 13th, 2019.



What are moral dilemmas?

Moral dilemmas are situations where an individual has to make a choicebetween two or more clashing options.
These options are often not pleasing to the individual and are usually not truly morally acceptable either. We can identify moral dilemmas by recognising that our actions in these given situations have moral and ethical consequences.
We must choose between which actions to take. However, we may not be happy with any choice, and none of them can be considered fully morally acceptable.
Our first point of order might be to consult any personal moral beliefs or societal ethical and lawful norms in order to resolve such difficulties. Yet, this is often not enough. It may not point towards the best action to take, and it may not even be sufficient in tackling the moral dilemma.
We must find ways of resolving these challenging situations in order to produce the least suffering possible. To do this, it is useful to identify the different types of moral dilemmas that we may find ourselves in.

6 Types of Moral Dilemmas

There are several categories of moral dilemmas within philosophical thought. They can seem complex, but learning the basics of them can help identify them and mould a solution for them:

Epistemic moral dilemmas

Epistemic’ means to do with the knowledge of something. This is what this dilemma is about.
The situation involves two moral choices that conflict, but the individual has no idea which choice is the most morally acceptable. They don’t know which is the most ethically viable. They need more information and knowledge surrounding the two options before making an informed decision.

Ontological moral dilemmas

Ontological’ means the nature of something or the relation between things. The options in this dilemma are equal in their moral consequences.
This means that neither of them supersedes the other. They are fundamentally on the same ethical level. Therefore, the individual cannot choose between the two.

Self-imposed moral dilemmas

A self-imposed dilemma is a situation that has been caused by the individual’s mistakes or misconduct. The moral dilemma is self-inflicted. This can cause a number of complications when attempting to make a decision.

World-imposed moral dilemmas

A world-imposed dilemma is a situation where events that we can’t controlhave created an unavoidable moral conflict.
An individual must resolve a moral dilemma, even though the cause of it is beyond his/her control. For example, this could be in times of war or a financial crash.

Obligation moral dilemmas

Obligation dilemmas are situations where we feel we are obliged to opt for more than one choice. We feel we are obliged to carry out an action from a moral or legal standpoint.
If there were just one option that is obligatory, then the choice would be easy. However, if an individual feels obliged to opt for several of the choices in front of them but can only choose one, which one should they choose?

Prohibition moral dilemmas

Prohibition dilemmas are the opposite of obligation dilemmas. The choices that are offered to us are all, on some level, morally reprehensible.
They can all be considered as wrong, but we must choose one. They could be illegal, or just plain immoral. An individual must choose between what would normally be considered as prohibited.
These are examples of some of the types of moral dilemmas that may arise. Our actions will affect not just ourselves, but many other people as well.
So, we should thoroughly consider the action before we carry it out. However, they are complex and problematic, and resolving them may seem an impossible task.

How to resolve them?

The largest struggle in trying to resolve a moral dilemma is recognising that whatever action you take, it will not be completely ethical. It will just be the most ethical in comparison with the other choices.
Philosophers have attempted to find solutions to moral dilemmas for centuries. They have discussed and attempted to find the best ways to resolve them, in order to help us live better and reduce the suffering that we may face.
Here are a few pieces of advice to help resolve moral dilemmas:

Be reasonable, not emotional

We have a greater chance of overcoming these struggles if we logically work through them. Analyse the aspects of the dilemma in order to better conclude what action is the greatest good. Emotion can cloud our judgment of what may be the best ethical outcome.

Choose the greater good or the lesser evil

Perhaps the soundest piece of advice is to conclude which choice allows for the greatest good, or the less evil. This isn’t simple and will take much consideration.
However, if there is an action that is on balance morally superior, despite other personal or social implications, then it is the best action to take.

Is there an alternative?

Analysing the situation in greater detail may reveal alternative options that were not immediately obvious. Is there an alternative choice or action that will resolve the dilemma better than the ones you have in front of you? Take time to recognise if there is.

What are the consequences?

Weighing up the positive and negative consequences of each action will give a clearer picture of the best choice to make. Each option may have a number of negative consequences, but if one has more positive consequences and less negative, then it is on the balance the right action to take.

What would a good person do?

Sometimes a useful thing to do would be to just simply askWhat would a good person do?
Imagine yourself as a truly virtuous and moral character and determine what they would do, regardless of your own character and the personal or social factors that may influence your decision.

Resolving moral dilemmas will not be easy

The dilemmas that we face will be complex and arduous. The advice given by philosophers will aid us when trying to resolve them.
However, it is not as straightforward as using one piece of advice to solve a single dilemma. Often, it will be a combination of many of them that will give us the best chance of taking the correct action. Most of the time, all of them will be relevant in every dilemma that we face.
But there is one thing that all of these methods of resolutions promote: the importance of reason. Moral dilemmas can seem so over-facing that our emotions can prevent us from making an informed decision. Or, they can misguide us into making the wrong decision.
Taking a step back to dissect and analyse the dilemma will allow for a better perspective on the situation. This allows you to see more clearly the consequences of each action, the goods and evils of each action and any alternatives that may present themselves.
However, perhaps the best piece of advice is just recognising that resolving moral dilemmas will not be easy. It will be difficult and may cause us deep anguish as we wrestle between conflicting moral options.
We are better equipped to face these dilemmas if we are aware of this. Thinking reasonably, and not being overwhelmed by the dilemma, will be a good start as well.
