    Default what i dont like about INTPs and using MBTI type for personal connotation

    i dont INTPs because they dump their corn-flakes into the sink and clog the drain.


    sound familiar?

    it seems like a lot of people use MBTI types for their own personal connotations. that is, they dont see MBTI type as a definitive explanation of someone's personality but merely a label for how they relate to someone.

    they might type people they dislike similarly, or everyone who does "X" as a certain type. the especially narcissistic might even type someone they admire as their own type, or refuse to believe someone they dont like/agree with could be the same type as them.


    are you guilty of this? remember an especially funny example of someone doing this? discuss.

    I don't like ISTP's because they sleep on couches instead of beds.

    I probably do it, but I'm very aware of this problem.
    I don't like typing people for the most part, and I let a combination of test results and self-assessment be the deciding factor.
    I hate it when other people try to have the final say on everyone else's type.
    I usually don't even bother with trying to type famous figures...
    Go to sleep, iguana.

    You may be joking but...My nephew tested ISTP and he refused for years to sleep in his own bed, but preferred the couch instead. It drove his family nuts.

    Yes, sad to say I've seen alot of that. I find it especially annoying when a thread is started for a particular type.. in my case INTP that is intended to be a sharing/learning one between that specific type or positive enforcement for them and people come out of the cracks with their rants which derails the thread... seems it never returns to what it was supposed to be. Suffice to say there are some really intense opinions that seem to make some go totally "haywire."

    Guilty as charged.

    I am suppose to understand because I'm an INFJ.

    Said person couldn't see why change is necessary so he/she must be an SJ.

    My mother's harping at me to clean up stuff again... I guess ISFJs have a tendency to nag.

    *sigh* Type gets me into more trouble then it helps remove them. Half the time I get them wrong, and the other half I apply them wrong. As I was saying in a PM earlier... type is a label... labels are insidious little things... skews perception. So I'm not using them for anything if I don't have to.

    I know an INFJ who does this too! Sounds more like an IN problem than just an INTP problem. jmo
