I Asked Each Personality Type To Open Up About Their Sexuality – Here’s What They Had To Say


Unfortunately, we did not receive enough ISTJ responses to deem any of the survey results significant.

ISTJs And Sexual Orientation

Of the 35 participants sampled:

74% identified as heterosexual
14% identified as bisexual or pansexual
3% identified as homosexual
3% identified as asexual
6% identified as ‘other.’

ISTJs And Sex Drive

When asked to rate their sex drive on a scale of one to ten, the mean ranking was 6.21.

ISTJs And Hookup Culture

When asked how they felt about “hookup culture:”

57% of participants selected “I dislike it and rarely/never engage in it.”
42% of participants selected “I like some aspects of it but dislike other ones.”
1% of participants selected “I love it and almost exclusively look for casual hookups”

ISTJ Commentary

1. “I think being an ISTJ contributes to my high sex drive and kinks. Every other aspect of my life has to be in order, sex is my outlet to let loose and be wild.”

2. “It’s interesting – ISTJs are known for our moral high ground and so I swing back and forth between trying to be a proper woman with limited partners but my inner feminist always cries out that I should be able to have as many partners as I’d like. I realized I just don’t feel good about myself after a meaningless hookup so I prefer long term friend with benefits and relationships and grew out of casual hookups.”

3. “As an ISTJ, I think I tend to not stray from the norm, sexually. For example, my favorite position is generic missionary.”

4. “I’m practical, but also want to keep my partner pleased. As an ISTJ, this seems in line with the ‘duty fulfiller’ role assigned to my type.”

5. “Honestly, I wish I was more experimental and more extraverted to introduce new things.”

6. “The ISTJ rule-following, holding to traditions characteristics meant I went along with gender-stereotypical behavior and monogamy. From childhood I wanted to find the one man for me and marry him. However, good girls don’t initiate sex, don’t let on that they enjoy sex or that they even want sex. Now that I’m older I’m breaking these so-called rules and following what I want.”

7. “My type makes me very detail oriented heh.”

8. “I very much like having control during sexual activities.”TC mark
