What Is The Myer Briggs Type Indicator?

The Myer Briggs Type Indicator is a self assessment psychological tool that assesses one’s personality to determine which of the following four functions they have, either introvert or extrovert, sensing or intuition, thinking or feeling and judgment or perception. 

The test demands that individuals answer yes or no to a series of questions that seemingly measure your likes and dislikes and attitudes towards people or things. The result is that the test assigns you a unique personality type out of the 16 major types outlined by this psychological tool. Although it is not scientifically backed, it has gained much fame in today’s world and is used widely.

Now that we have an idea of the Myer Briggs test, we will take a look at the personality of ISTJs so we can better understand which anime characters fall into this category!

Who Is A Logistician?

A logistician or ISTJ personality type is someone who is an introverted, sensing, thinking and judging person which actually means they operate using these functions in their daily life. This is how they understand the world around them and act! These individuals are generally quiet and reserved however they have a rational and hopeful outlook in life. They are wise in that they are very careful when they plan their next steps.

These personalities are very committed to do their duties and uphold values, traditions, rules, policies and general guidelines in their daily life. Hence they are very important to institutions for maintaining a certain way of life – culture – and ensuring discipline is maintained. They will put in much work and time to complete their tasks and do it in the best way possible. They take pride in their work and how they do it. They also make sure others follow the norms of the society or organization they work within.

Logisticians are very logical and that is what they expect from others. They do not like non productive talk – they want to focus on facts and things that serve a real purpose. If you try to entertain them with gossip, talk of the town or any irrelevant information, they will quickly lose interest and turn their attention elsewhere. 

What angers them more is challenging their theories or fact based opinions with nothing more than a weak argument. They will get irritated and surprised at the same time! So be smart when you question them.

A unique trait of the logistician personality is that they keep their word no matter what! They will put in everything they have to make sure they fulfill what they promised or committed to so that they do not seem lazy or dishonest!

The 5 ISTJ Anime Characters.


He is a trainer from Veilstone City and is featured in the Pokemon anime series. He has purple hair, tan skin and wears a dark colored jacket. He is very much concerned about the strength of the pokemon he has; he dislikes weak pokemon to the extent that he releases them instead of training and improving their capabilities. He has also been seen scolding his pokemon especially after losing a battle and rarely shows them any affection.

Like ISTJs, Paul is focused on what he has to do and may seem insensitive as described above. He does understand the influence of emotions; he rarely smiles except when he is dealing with Ash.

Paul expects others to come up to his standards. He wants people to be strong and meet their potential. This is why he does not show respect to Gym leaders as he thinks they are weak.


Motivated by a passion to take revenge, the scarred man better known as scar, is a murderer who kills state alchemists to carry out lethal justice according to his religious beliefs and in an attempt to avenge his family – they were brutally slaughtered. 

Although he has convinced himself that he is acting on his religion’s basic tenets, he still goes against many teachings. He performs his so-called duty well and is consumed by anger, hatred and a desire to seek revenge. 

However he does have a soft side. He empathizes with those who have lost everything and his kinsmen whom he values highly; he takes every piece of advice from them to his heart. He is also very protective of them!

In terms of skills, this anime character is very strong and has good reflexes. He has speed which helps him fight well in hand to hand combat! 


Appearing in a much sexualized manner, Kalifa is the secretary of Iceberg and is pretty and slim wearing clothing that reveals much of her skin despite her status; she was a secretary and also became an assassin. 

She is very protective of her boss whom she accompanies frequently in a dutiful manner and if anyone approaches him in a non respectful manner she becomes very aggressive. 

Her traits include being calm and practical and she is aware of what is going on around her. She is hence another anime character that falls into the category of ISTJ characters.

Teru Mikami

A character in the Death Note series, Mikami is a criminal prosecutor who has black shoulder length hair, wears glasses and is considered to be an attractive man. He is interesting in that he considers Kira as his god.

This young man has much commitment to values he has learnt over the past. He holds justice high and hence works against crime and wants to punish any evil he comes across. He is so much into what he believes that sometimes he may be blinded because he even ends up killing those people who do have criminal records but have not yet committed a crime in their life! He is indeed another ISTJ who takes his job way too seriously.
