    Or is one required merely to 'Reply' and enter something inane such as "+1" in response?
    No "thank function" here. To thank someone publicly, just make a post: "+1", or other brief acknowledgment. To thank someone privately, send a rep (small 6-pointed star-like symbol in the post footer).

    One difference I see is this. Men tend to poke at and make fun of each other. Women don't seem to appreciate this as much. This is in general of course and not common to all people.

    (changes subject) -- who is the *character* in your avatar? Is it a female Vulcan of some sort (which would make sense for a female INTJ...)?

    Much obliged.

    She is T'Pol, from the Star Trek prequel series "Enterprise". Yes, good female avatars are hard to come by.

    OP, I think what you're getting at is a T/F difference rather than a gender difference. Most of what people say about the psychological differences between men and women are essentially T/F differences, and most men test T and most women test F, so what you're saying may be accurate (if oversimplified) in most cases. However, a female T would be more likely to relate to what you classify as "men's talk" and the same with the male F and "women's talk".

    That's a bit of generalization isn't it?

    For example,my ISTJ sister absolutely detests all the "fluff" her ESFJ friend spouts,she says it turns her off the conversation almost immediately.

    She seems to greatly prefer debating and talking about subjects like history and science.

    In contrast to my ENFP sister,her debate style is very emotionally un-involved.

    She's not the type who tries to comfort others at all,so the pretense here really does not apply in her case.

    So,I wouldn't necessarily go as far as to limit women in such a way.Or men for that matter.

    I also do not think it is a T/F thing as I have met an ESFJ who enjoyed steering the conversation towards criticism of whoever she happened to be talking to,any time she could.

    I believe everyone has the capacity for both emotional and intellectual depth within them,regardless of gender or preference for taking in information.

    This has been my own experience.

    Of course it is, but that doesn't mean it is invalid, it's just not absolute. Your example below supports it, in fact.

    This is not limiting, as we are not telling anyone what or how to be. It is simply observing trends in how people behave and communicate.

    This is certainly true. T and F preference, however, lead to different emphases and different manners of expressing emotional, logical, intellectual, and other meaning. Other functions play a role as well. Also, T has no monopoly on criticism. F, especially Fe, can generate as much criticism as any T, though the bases for that criticism and the forms it takes will tend to be different.

    Not sure how many stereotypes I counted in the OP, but it's like a party for 1950's thinking. This reminds me of why I never want to live in Canberra.

    Of course if you live in country devoted to Personal Testimony by compulsive narcissists, Canberra may well remind you of the 1950's.

    Canberra, though, is a designed city which we built from scratch. We built a beautiful city that is a delight to live in. We attract people from all over the world in large numbers to study and work in Canberra.

    And how strange you should be so meretricious as to diss stereotypes on a site devoted to archetypes.

    But if you don't care, you don't care.

    So are you careless or carefree?
