I would say Idealists or Rationals would be the most mis-understood just because they are the minority in temperment.

anyway... i CAN see why people think we're conservative but honestly... i don't know many guardians who are.
i've actually read an article about ISFJs (taken from myers-briggs) and it said that we are also amoung the most likely to believe in a higher spiritual power (that's got to be bullsh*t).

Because I think that causes and charities are best privatized. Looking at the global record of government-entangled economies is eye-opening in that regard.
I also don't think that Guardians are necessarily all religious or spiritual. Maybe moreso back when institutional religion was seen as the cement that held society together. To the extent that it still is, I'm sure that Guardian involvement is steadier than no.

I was close to a Guardian Inspector for quite some time who was an atheist since he was a child. It just didn't make sense to him that people would believe in it. It did not seem solid or rational to him. It probably helped that his mother's religion was Buddhism, which is less deity oriented than monotheistic religions -- but still, he pretty much rejected the idea of a god who interacted with the world as an unrealistic, unprovable idea before he even became an adult.
He's very much an Inspector, too, not the least bit leaning toward Rational Mastermind: he's a lifelong athlete, only likes to deal in facts, hates to argue theory or opinions, and otherwise has a deeply lawful sense of Guardian principles, including order and authority.
He isn't some blind, obedient drone though, either...that's another irritating misconception about Guardians that they NEVER question authority. That's a load of crap. They might hate and even act out against a particular form of authority while at the same time thinking *their form of authority* is superior.
