How ISTJs can irritate others
Each personality type can potentially irritate other people in their own particular way.
How ISTJs might irritate others
The potential ways in which an ISTJ can irritate others include focusing too much on the current task at the expense of longer term or interpersonal issues, not articulating your understanding of the situation, and not seeing the wood for the trees. Others may see you as being too serious, seeming to be inflexible, not encouraging others to experiment or innovate, and not promoting his/her own ideas or contributions.
How to improve relationships
You can overcome personality type differences by learning about your similarities and differences with other people. This leads to greater understanding, appreciation, and respect. Also, if you learn to adapt your style this will make you more influential and respected.
There is a comprehensive guide on how to do this in the book Influencing People Using Myers Briggs. This is available as an option when you complete the personality test.
