If I discovered that I had typed myself wrong, that would be a positive step towards the goal of self awareness.
    What pippi said.

    (btw I'm still not entirely sure I've correctly typed myself)

    i thought i was isfj for awhile but i didn't act or make any decisions differently than i do now. I've sord of just accepted the fact that a lot of the types seem to describe me, so i'll never be really sure of what type i am, but it doesn't bother me.

    I don't do that now.
    May I ask: what was your pattern of behaviour before you became aware (knowledgeable of) MBTI/Jung typology - that whole theory?

    It's not about panicking. It's about utilizing it as a tool. If it has no affect on your thinking and behaviour then what use is it. None.

    It was as it is now.
    I don't have any doubt I'm ISFP. Especially reading the childhood stuff. I can relate too well.

    I want to answer more but the question is too broad and I can't think of any framework to use.
    I really can't see patterns in my behaviour. Motivations I can clearly see.
    I want to answer but you know...

    Please clarify.

    What do you think the point to it is, wolfy? Whatever you think it is, you have to imagine that it woudn't serve its point so well if someone believed themselves to be the incorrect type, because all that is said of the type they believed themselves to be wouldn't actually be applicable to them.
    You could move down deeper from that point to whether or not we are all essentially so similar that maybe if we did mistype we would actually take on the characteristics of the other type and maybe better off because of it depending on our goals.

    I don't really believe in the blank slate theory but it's interesting to think about.

    My personal feeling would be it would be a terrible waste to mistype. I would say we all have inborn strengths that are sometimes hard to uncover. There is no one harder to see than yourself.
    And working against or to be more precise not to your strengths would be huge mistake.
    Of course I'm not talking just about MBTI here but the whole process of self discovery of which MBTI is a part.

    I guess, the easiest way to tackle this Q would be to recall if there were certain behaviour/habits/traits that became highlighted, or, that you see you're trying to suppress once you became aware of them (they made sense due to your awareness of MBTI/Typology).

    Maybe it's easier to recall what you stopped doing once you found out, than what either merely 'changed', or maybe you can recall, what you do more of now?

    If anything?

    You kinda answered, though, saying 'it was as it is now', but if you can think of some more specific instances? perhaps? i dunno.

    I can't think of a single difference.

    None.

    "Type" is only a 4-set of characters. It does not define your personality, unless you're an idiot.

    My type (or, the type I choose to assign to myself) used to have an affect on my self-perception.. but now it has basically none. So... if I was mistyped, I wouldn't mind one bit. Or raise an eyebrow.

    I haven't changed. When I was really interested and trying to figure it out I would check to see if what I was doing fit. But really people soon revert to their natural way.

    I think if you mistyped and were actually wanting to get any use out of it then it would make a difference. You'd tend to grind gears.

    How could it not?

    Unless you're just wasting your time screwing around in a system you have no intention of using in a constructive way.

    This, yeah. Maybe P's are more prone to it, perhaps 'accepting' the idea that their MBTI type 'could' be explaining their behavior or otherwise fit them.

    Well.. there are other ways to use it constructively, like as a tool to understand other people.

    I dunno.. some people are less affected by outside perceptions of themselves overall, whether their input comes from other people or from a tool like the MBTI.
