    I always thought you were a woman because of your username .

It's because even here, there is a bias for males to be T's and for females to be F's. Now, if you've seen Jennifer, you've probably thought that she was female. That's because of her avatar.
    I think this is a really interesting point. I have noticed this bias in myself where I will read someones post and hear a "masculine" voice or read another and perceive it to be more "feminine", and hadn't been able to pinpoint the difference. I agree with you because I think with few exceptions, male Fs on this board tend to mimic the terser writing style I associate with Ts. On the other hand, female Ts don't mimic the F writing style, which is probably by virtue of their type. So not getting the actual content of a post, I'll conclude that a female T would be more likely to have her gender mistaken than a male F.

    Also, Jennifer apparently has a perverse sense of humor.

    Out of curiosity (and I don't mean for this to derail the thread): what exactly is the F writing style? As wind-up rex suggested (correctly), I just write the way I write, without trying to mimic anything.

    The only difference I can see between T and F writing styles that seems common among both. Is the confrontational aspect of them both.

    F's seem to be much less confrontational than T's in general.

    But other than that I wouldn't look too much into this.

    Thank you Wind-up Rex. I kind of figured before that people would generally figure out from what I wrote that I am female if they didn't get it from my username. I was thinking maybe I would need to put something on there like EJCC. Glad if I don't need to.

    On the other hand, I would have assumed EJCC was a girl, even without the signature she has, despite being a T. And yet, I don't think she stands out as being extremely direct and confrontational...The Gromit avatar has something to do with it, but I think her communication style does as well.

    I think that if were to briefly sum up the differences I've noticed between the F and T writing style it would be the difference between communicating (F-type) and transmitting (T-type). I believe when a T speaks, that person is doing their best to capture an abstraction to the best of their ability so that it can be understood by those around them. The plays the thing, sorta speak.

    On the other hand, I think that everything about the way an F communicates carries some aspect of what their trying to express. It's like they write holistically. I think thats why the aesthetic of a post matters more to a F: you put more happy, dancing smileys in your post you will have a post that has a more happy and smiley flavor. The end. I think the emotional preference also gives a more wandering quality to a F post: ideas are arranged in terms of their relevance to the complete emotional composition being presented as opposed to their rational relationship to each other. Finally, I think that there's a valuational quality to how they write. More talk in terms of right and wrong that a T (STs talk about things being more or less correct, I think).

    Exception to all this: INFJs. They all sound like "warmer" Ts to me.

    I find that people usually mistake me on forums for being male or they have to ask me what my gender I am. I like to pick gender neutral names and avatars, but I don't do it on purpose. But maybe I just post more T-like...

    *edit* Wow. That post didn't contribute to the conversation at all. lol

    I'm not saying it's necessarily a bad thing, just an observation...

    And I had nothing else to post about.

    He who quotes the Homer in pink, is most likely a she. Teehee.
