Sometimes critical is an euphanism for "hiding in what is familiar by pushing the unfamiliar away". If one can't deal with it directly, there is normally some level of seperation between themselves and what they are avoiding - I could see this manifesting itself as "But he can't be a T like me"... (I haven't been watching if its Ts or Fs that are saying the T/F divide, but instinct tells me it'll be nearly all Ts. If not, so much for that theory )
FWIW, it seems like the support has been near universal... but I believe small changes in behaviour are out there. I was self analysing my own reaction to it and then looking for other similar behaviour... so projection may be an issue... I'd be fascinated to hear your side of how you think people changed and how personality seemed to influence it! Especially the smaller details, rather than the obvious ones, in RL or on the board.
