Most of my life I met new people, strangers, and superiors in the Sensitve Style- with polite reserve. When we were first married, my wife said that I always looked down. On our recent 8 day tour, my wife mentioned to me, how social and extraverted I was with strangers, and how easily I mixed ( Alot less Sensitive, and more Inventive? )

> ***Perhaps, as many personality authors of the myersbriggs systems suggest, you are developing your fourth tier (for ISTJ) Extroverted Intuitive function thus accounting for extroversion and inventiveness. The fourth tier function is developed beginning age 55-60.
It might well be an unused MBTI function, but I was bombarded by intuitive flashes around the age of puberty. They have greatly decreased as I have become a hyper-active Type-A! The Sensitive Style/avoidant, was the the most maladjusted style for me as a teen/young adult, making me shy & introverted.... ( Some see E 4 =INXJ ( X=T/F ) As a teen, I would rank myself Serious-Sensitive-Inventive; maturity has switched 2 & 3.... In MBTI terms as you say, less ISTJ, more ENXP ( X=T/F ). But I have had inuitive flashed for decades, due to? Rich 3W$/ISTJ
