ISTJ ISTJs are most comfortable learning when:
♠ engrossed in short ‘here and now’ activities such as business games, competitive teamwork tasks, role-playing exercises ♠ able to stand back from events and listen/observe, e.g. observing a group at work, taking a back seat in a meeting ♠ allowed to think before acting, assimilate before commenting, to prepare in advance ♠ carrying out painstaking research ♠ given the opportunity to review what they have learnt ♠ asked to produce carefully considered analyses and reports ♠ finding themselves in structured situations with a clear purpose ♠ presented with ideas and concepts that emphasize rationality or logic, and are well argued ♠ when concentrating on, or being shown techniques for doing things with obvious practical advantages e.g. saving time, drawing up action plans, dealing with awkward people ♠ given the chance to try out and practice techniques with coaching/feedback from a credible expert ♠ exposed to a model they can copy, e.g. a respected boss, a demonstration from someone with a proven track record ♠ given immediate opportunities to implement what they have learned ISTJ’s are least comfortable when:
♠ the learning is abstract and theoretical and or practical benefit ♠ expected to act without clear guidelines or opportunities for planning or practice there is no practice or clear guidelines ♠ there are political, managerial or personal obstacles to implementation ♠ asked to do something without warning, e.g. to produce an instant reaction ♠ obliged to participate in situations with a strong emotional or interpersonal content ♠ involved in unstructured activities where there is ambiguity and uncertainty
