    How the education system isn't meeting needs of the new and evolved work world or keeping up to educational research regarding the best ways to educate and evaluate knowledge. (It's off of this quote, "Our school system was invented in teh late 1800s [Canada], and little has changed. Can you imagine if the medical profession ran this way?" Linda Darling-Hammond.)

    Luckily it's only a rough draft worth 10% of our grade to do class editing, but it's my first academic paper that we have to submit to a journal and stuff when we're done. The rough draft so far has good ideas but is nowhere near enough supported with research (which I know exists but I haven't put in my paper yet).

    Sarah, you seem like a very smart, very interesting person, but I can't help but notice how much of the time you spend on this board fighting for Sensor Rights, instead of just participating in the threads for fun.

    You're one of the many, many INTPs on this list, Tallulah? Do you get insulting personal comments sent to you (or read insulting comments posted) almost every day you log in regarding your type preferences? No? I thought not. Since you say you've seen the sort of stuff I post, then you must know that I do not go around only preaching about "Sensor rights". It seems to me that the people who are telling me I'm too sensitive are all people who have popular type codes, and thus have a huge base of support to lean on. No wonder the lame insults feels a lot less annoying when they're directed your way.

    I might feel like participating in more discussions if I felt this list were less about people making fun of each other's type codes and/or whining about how much they can't stand everyone of certain type codes. Yes, I do dislike pointless, lame insults posted for no other reason than that it amuses the person dishing it out, and I can't help feeling negatively towards the people who do that. I really wish they'd stop using type as a weapon and started using it more positively. If the insults they posted actually helped people grow and mature, that would be a great thing, but I don't see an awful lot of constructive criticism -- much less the witty variety.

    I get such comments frequently, uh Fi isn't exactly everyone's personal favorite nor is INFP... and I agreed with her, so am not sure your counterpoint really invalidates her opinion.

    IMO, there is a distinct stereotype difference between the NFP and the SFP on the 'net.

    Just saying.

    Could everyone please divert your isfp insults, stereotypes and jokes over to me? I would be very interested in them. Let me have it!

    Yes, I definitely love it when Blue Wing rants about how INFPs are the most illogical and worst type for deep relationships... Ah he is a funny chap.

    I just saw this thread.

    It's interesting to see how the responses have tended to fall among typical "typelines."

    I appreciate seeing the discusson that is occurring. I think it's good when people actually listening and try to empathize with how the "other side" might be experiencing and viewing the situation; and along those lines, I'd encourage people not to bail out of frustration, but to continue to represent their side well... as long as you're doing the first part -- i.e., listening.

    My two cents?

    I can laugh at some pretty hard things that I know some people can't. I usually take into account the person making the jokes and what their intentions probably were. I don't like it when people have trouble keeping that in perspective and can never seem to "take a joke."

    At the same time, I'd get really ticked off if I kept getting the same unoriginal joke(s) directed at me time and time again by people trying to be cute... especially if I was the minority, and super-especially if I was a minority that people seemed to have negative feelings towards to start with. It gets old, trust me. It really does, regardless of what type or gender or age or social group you belong to. These are jokes being directed at shaming personal identity, not just general jokes being made; so yes, they are soon enough taken personally.

    The goal of this particular forum is to encourage participation between different types of people, not undermine it, and the community can only benefit from that. If you really really hate that idea, there are some other forums that focus on one particular type where you can probably say things in ways you enjoy and not have to worry about being misunderstood.

    To Sarah

    Ok, time for me to be serious. First off, I totally understand your side of the story and I also understand the other side (maybe because I am part of them). I think the best option is to be frank and honest with a person about your preferences. My normal mode of conversation is lighthearted and fun loving, but with a few people who I know personally, I show a totally different side of myself that they prefer. On the internet, it is hard to know the preferences of the person you are talking too right away (or who might read your comments) unless you are specifically told, so you end up saying what amuses you.

    My advice would be to specifically share your concerns with the person bothering you (I know it might be a lot of people) but if they are mature, they will accept/analyze the given concern. If they still do not respect your wishes, then as jaerae said, put them on the ignore list. I personally can not think of another way other than specifically pointing out what bothers you to the specific person to solve such a thing. Other than that, I think things will continue as always, but I do appreciate what you are trying to do and I really do feel you. Good luck with it.
