    LOL! Well, so you DO exist!

    If it helps, I haven't been a mod for very long. (I used to live under a rock, until someone found me and brought me out into the main forum.)

    When you have the time, go ahead and look through some of my old posts so you can get offended. It's a tradition for all new mod recruits.

    Don't forget to bring righteous indignation backed by an inflated sense of authority. A monocle is optional, but you might want to bring that along too, so you have something to drop into your champagne flute.

    ^how about I don't nose around in your past; you don't poke around in mine, and we start with a clean slate and now we should probably turn this thread over to INFs w 4s, which both we are not. But feel free to PM me anytime.

    Perhaps INFx and type 4s have a greater tendency to be interested in typology than other types?

    This is anecdotally regarded by quite a number of people (myself included). It makes sense given the focuses 4's have, and in general what INFx's want and need.

    Hm. I don't think they're inflated in the general population though they might be overrepresented in a forum like this, which isn't the same thing. It shouldn't be a surprise that fours are pretty likely (more likely than all other types) to be introspective and to want to talk about something like psychology and personality types. They are the "deep sea divers of the psyche" (I think Riso said this?) Same with INFx. Jung was an INFJ himself, so to see INFJs in a typology forum, I mean, it's not that these are the only types interested in this stuff but...why would this surprise people? And it's fairly straightforward that fours are likely to be INFxs, especially INFPs. So take that all into account and... I mean, why is it controversial or confusing that these types would flock to a typology forum and certain other types would be less likely to?

Your argument makes sense from the perspective of MBTI; but the MBTI types are themselves differentiated. .
    Hi, this isn't a correct interpretation of statistics in general (you aren't taking into account the fact that this forum represents a highly specialized and specific interest... the entire population as a whole is not represented here! That would be insane.)

    I have never read what you're saying about nines and sixes; INFP statistically is likely to be a four; this is evidence in tons of studies.

    I'm sorry this issue bothers you so much but I am confused as to why anybody cares or feels threatened by it. It seems fairly neutral to me, not something to get worried about or bothered by.

    Let them be... If people think they like being INFx 4s then let them be happy about it.
    It's not such a big deal.

    Well, I have a black-and-white avatar that expresses melancholy, but I'm too lazy to change it.
