    Still comical, although it'd be funnier to me if it didn't clog up unrelated threads.

    This is about "competition," as in Typology forums.
    Somewhere underneath this bitter angry shit is an ownership issue.
    Business.

    I wrote: "The board is called Typology Central, not MBTI Central."

    Banana wrote: "An excellent point. The answer to which lies in the reason for the name change.
    A good psychologist would like to promulgate his ideas; a good businessman would prefer to suffocate any competition."

    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.

    MBTI Central: A Place Where You Non-INTPs Can Go - INTP 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.

    See, I'm the opposite. For funny, sometimes I love the juxtaposition of nonsense with the rational... the absurd, the random humanity.

    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!

    I don't want to investigate a sociopath.

    And the name change from MBTI Central to Typology Central was good luck.

    It was good luck because Typology Central now includes MBTI as well as Wilhelm Reich's book, "Character Analysis".

    And, "Character Analysis", is intellectually and morally superior to MBTI.

    As, "Character Analysis", is still on the curriculum of University Psychology Departments.

    While MBTI has been consigned to the rubbish bin along with astrology and alchemy and creationism.

    I don't think it was luck; it was smart to change the name.

    I am drawing attention to the cognitive dissonance between the works of Carl Jung and the works of Wilhelm Reich.

    And it's true that Central has been a mono-conversation based on the works of Carl Jung.

    But since we have fortuitously become Typology Central, we can now have a bipolar conversation.

    Quite naturally this will lead to cognitive consonance and cognitive dissonance.

    And although it is well known that cognitive dissonance is a sign of learning, it is less well known that cognitive consonance is also a sign of learning.

    So I think it is fair to say that as we enter the cognitive world, we engage our minds and start to think.

    I remember as a little boy asking my father what they do at the University. He paused and thought for a while and said, "They think".
