I don't need 4 or 5 months to figure it out.
This is about "competition," as in Typology forums.
Somewhere underneath this bitter angry shit is an ownership issue.
I wrote: "The board is called Typology Central, not MBTI Central."

INTP poster wrote: Next time I will go work for the competition and the whole world will know why.
I don't like the competition.
If memory serves me, this board used to be called MBTI Central.
So here's what I want to know:
Who owned MBTI Central?
Did someone screw over the owners of MBTI Central,
and start this forum on their own?
Did the paranoid INTP poster have a job with the old owner,
but got left out in the cold when this forum began,
thus resulting in being one pissed off mother*ucker,
who now stalks this forum?
Who the hell really knows?
Thanks for the enlightenment. I love a good mystery.

No. I shouldn't have to elaborate on what a person with DEPTH means.
Right about now, I am certain I am not ENTP.
You're right, actually. I've only recently come to that conclusion myself. If exact function order is the only real problem you have with MBTI, we're probably in the same boat!
There is no MBTI theory without function order.
Don't you get that?
You can't do it your way and still call it MBTI.
Heheh, fair. It seems I've made a mistake in assuming that most people approach MBTI with a healthy skepticism of exact functional orders--it seemed the only reasonable way to expect any real use from the system, so I just assumed everyone was using it that way.
Never assume anything.
On this board, in another area, was this verbal exchange about Barack Obama:
"There seems to be a consensus of sorts on Barack's type,
with most believing him to be ENFJ."
"You really think his fourth function is Ti?
I can't buy into that.
His thinking function would most likely be first or second, not fourth.
He's far too strategic and logical to be Fe dom."
Now, clearly this person thinks an ENFJ has a predetermined function order,
as if all ENFJ's are burped out of their mother's womb that way.
I don't think people have healthy skepticism about this predetermined function order at all.
Quite the contrary!
Not surprisingly, the people that were there when it happened. All of it is public, as well, if you want to investigate.
Still comical, although it'd be funnier to me if it didn't clog up unrelated threads.
