Hi everyone --

I saw something interesting on the net -- and thought I'd throw it out for
discussion. It's definitely a much more fluffy discussion than the legal/ethics
thread (which I enjoyed tremendously). I read that technical writing is a good
career fit for those of writers with the ISTJ personality type (this is Myer's
Briggs by the way). I found that to be interesting since my type is somewhere
between INFP and ENFP -- the exact opposite of ISTJ. Any thoughts on the
validity of the ISTJ-techwriting claim?
