"I love comedy because a joke is smashing two disparate ideas together. For example, this is both another dumb navel-gazing blog post by a ridiculously privileged white guy AND it’s me expressing my fundamental right of freedom of speech. Comedy!"

In the absence of formal interviews, vlogs and features are useful for familiarizing yourself with the visual and temperamental aspects of different types.  Notice Joseph’s facial expressions, eye movements, posture, mannerisms, speech patterns, and responses to others.  Over time, you will recognize similar patterns in other ISTJs.


Although not as immediately apparent as in interviews, a person’s type shines through in the work they create as well.  Notice the content, themes, and approach Joseph uses in his stand-up.  What light can this shed on the mind of ISTJs in general?
