    Being on this forum has led me into more trouble, which I believe so far is a good thing.

    Hey, I stumbled into MBTI this go round as a homework assignment from a marriage counselor.

    It has been a consolation in some ways in that many of my innate dispositions (according to personality theory) are not disorders (as labeled by psychology).

    My results from the MMPI 6 years ago were VERY consistent with my recent MBTI test, and it has basically shed more light on what I already knew of myself, reminded me of things that I otherwise would probably choose not to recognize, but at the same time make me more accountable for my thinking/actions as at this point I am even more aware of what makes me tick than ever before.

    As far as other personality types, I never even thought others existed! I mean seriously, I guess I just thought "Well, they sure as heck are a good bit different than me."

    Ignorance is bliss!

    I guess my final realization in this thread is that since I now know my wife's type, it allows me to understand the parts of her thinking that usually disconnect with my thinking, and hopfeully vice versa. The whole point of this was to help us understand to not get pissed at each other over silly shit!



    It's a cool social science that I am enjoying learning more about it, especially by my interactions with real live folks here.

    This forum has made me realize - in more than just a hypothetical way - that there is no type that is always pleasant or unpleasant to deal with. No particular type though, I've just realized there's no point in having favourites, or even opinions, really.

    I had basically built a "prejudice" but sticking around erased it overtime.(Or maybe built a new one actually...)
    True! I will get to the acceptance point but right now its like when you over hear something completely absurd and just have to shake your head.

    Hum... never really had an opinion on types in the first place

    At least nothing really negative... I seem to like NFs?

    mm. The best you can hope for is predictive behaviour, and some insight into why people find *you* positive or negative to interact with.

    Same

    ISTJs are more flexible than I originally thought. So, good for them. Mostly, the forum has only reaffirmed positive and negative perceptions of certain types I already had.

    I'm noticing that most people are responding that they had a more negative view that turned positive and not the other way around. I guess I'll be honest and say I'm beginning to have more negative views of certain types that I didn't have before. Some people's willingness to ascribe unsavory behaviors to something as silly as MBTI type makes me wonder how willing they are to do the same thing when it comes to other groups of people.

    But then again I think to myself, is this really surprising? I've been told so often that I was the person who made people rethink their ideas of their preconceived notions of "what I'm supposed to be like" that I just don't know what to make of comments like that anymore. It's like admitting you had a narrow-minded or limited exposure to a group of people (which is good! you're seeking to correct it) and it only took a handful of people to turn that around. But then my next thought is if it only took a handful of people for you to form that negative perception and just as many to change it, maybe people should just lay off making the evaluations based on such flimsy criteria. It seems like a ball getting tossed back and forth. I guess it comes down to exposure.

    In any criteria, to point out or say stuff is to leave the other stuff unsaid.
    As it is with the MBTI. We do not lie- we only leave fifty per cent of the stuff unsaid. We accept a part to be the whole. We are fooled by semiotics.
    It is a trap, and we fall flat face down.
    T or F, S or N. Take one sign away and remove it with another.
    What kind of an alternative is that?

    Say you are one hundred per cent Ti and one hundred per cent Fi and a zero per cent Te and a zero per cent Fe. Or the other way around.
    What is your sign? It is indeterminate. You are kind of normal now, eh?

    Say that you have another system of signs. You have a sign for introverted judging function G, and extroverted judging function D.
    You are not indeterminate any more. You are back in the game.
    What game? If a game is ruled by the rules of semiotics, what game is that?
    No game. A sign is not the thing.

    It is only when we see posts we get an inkling of the thing.
    And when we see more than an inkling, the unsavoury remarks are forgotten.
    How does that happen? Round and round we go.

    A ball is tossed back and forth. How very human.
