    I suppose it's how you use it. One can use MBTI to identify someone's type related traits and isolate those from what makes them unique.

    This is a spectular generalisation.

    Can you imagine all those 5 hundred million infps arrayed in front of you, and you don't get on with any of them.
    That's 284 million INFPs according to the percentages.

    I don't think anyone is suggesting that people are not individuals.


    Taking a concept to it's logical end is rarely logical or relevant to the subject at hand.

    Erm...they're meant to be generalisations.....Every person of every type is unique, but with unique blend of each category.

    Compulsory universal literacy created the literate individual, and the voluntary electric media such as telephone, radio, TV, and the internet, create electronic tribes.

    So the literate individual is now the content of the electric media.

    So the literate individual is in effect obsolete. And being obsolete rises in status. So we have 320 million Americans each saying, I am an individual, I am an individual, I am an individual ............

    But we live in an electric world where God is dead, the individual is dead, and the author is dead. But we cling onto them as though our life depends on it. But it is literacy that depends on God, the individual, and the author.

    We invented the printing press in 1440 and the very first book we printed was the Bible and the Bible gave us God, the individual, and the author.

    We were called the people of the book: Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. But we are no longer the people of the book, we are the people of the electric media, just look in front of you now.

    In the book the author gives the meaning to the text. For instance, in the Bible God gives the meaning to the text. But in the electric media the response in real time gives the meaning to the etext. So in the electric media we say, the meaning of any communication is its response.

    The individual is dead.

    C'mon, every person is unique because they have a unique individual soul which can be saved by the blood of Jesus.

    On the other hand we form part of the Communion of Saints, the Body of Christ, and we are saved in and by community.

    So what are you? An lonely individual Protestant, or a communal Catholic?

    We create our tools and our tools create us. It has nothing to do how we use it, for it is using us.

    And dividing 7.1 billion people into 16 types is ridiculous.

    So mbti is a way of shutting down our minds and our sense of the ridiculous, in order to hypnotise us into the cult of mbti.
