ISTJ. I used to work for the National Security Agency and they administered the test to the entire work force back in the 80s. Turned out that something like 90 percent of the agency's managers were ISTJs. Extroverts were a distinct minority in the Agency.

The tests say INTP, if you can believe them.

That's an amazing factoid. I, too, used to work for the Agency during my Navy days, and I'm also an ISTJ. 8)

You know way more about all the types than I do. I know the particulars of mine and a little of the wife's, and that's it. Now I have to go check, thus my J.
