    Question Post count = knowledge ?

    It looks to me that in many situations post count people see as amount of knoledge. (what is not true)
    In many cases person with 56 posts will be submissive toward the person that has 3700 posts.
    Also person with large number of posts will think that he/she is more likely to be right, even in things that have nothing to do with MBTI simply because they have more posts. (there are alway exceptions)


    Do others agree with this observation and what do you think about it?

    never really pay attention to someone's postcounts. Besides, many times those posts are made to ask a question, not to answer one

    Lol, no.

    I have a shit ton of posts, not because I am knowledgeable on or about MBTI, or typology but rather because I love foruming, I am in a monogamous relationship with this one and... and, I am dork with a capital D.

    Agree. Much like people naturally associate age with wisdom. It's an ingrained heuristic that we use automatically.

    Edit: I also find it interesting that whenever somebody mention people acting like sheep, they immediately deny it without considering it.

    I've never noticed any sort of deference on the part of those with low post counts towards those with high post counts. If anything, some folks with low post counts get a little ignored (though not all the time), but not really any special to the high post count lot.

    It is wise to be familiar with your surroundings (and their valued currency) before attracting attention to yourself, lest it be the wrong kind of attention. This is why people with a lesser post count (often newcomers) tend to be deferential.
