    I'm saying, do you see your type as 'the' type, and see other types as 'the others'? Do you fit your understanding of other types types to fit the mold of your type? -- Do the other types orbit around the INTP? And I don't mean it in a self-centered way. I am just asking how you understand each type.

    Yes, good point. (I was wondering whether to post about this.)

    When I think of a list or stacking of the 16 types, I always picture ISTJ as one end of the spectrum, and ENFP as the other end. The two extremes. Why isn't ISTJ in the middle somewhere? Because I'm comparing all types to mine. It's interesting how that fell into place naturally in my mind.
    You can't spell "justice" without ISTJ.

    INFPs are an ideal in terms of being the most conscientious about what they consider good. But their ideals tend to oppose mine, thus we don't get along.
    i tend to think of INFs as the mentally unstable sheep....

    ....but the INFJ is the crazy one that people secretly think is so crazy, that shes sane

(Of course, I would also test INTP & INFJ sometimes, so what does that say about my impression of those types also ).
    Strange, I never felt anything like that. Quite the opposite actually.

    On the topic, I don't usually compare other types to mine, I look at them separately.

    I'm not biased to my type. I'm biased to myself.
    Others are different to me in varying degrees. I'm my only reference point.

    lol to play allong with this bias idea... i see ENFPs as the sheep that fall into a ditch

    but in actually it this is stupid. i think one can make good and hopefully vague conclusions about their type... and others for that matter, without being bias.

    Well, I have no doubt you'd be the first to try.

    I see the concept of being an IxxJ or ExxP sorta backwards. With IxxP and ExxJ, you gather information, then process it. Makes sense, right? But INFJ has Ni - Fe. The main functin feeds the secondary one. Or maybe it makes just as much sense, and I just don't see it.
