    Why is this a bad thing? And I don't think that MBTI has too much control over my perceptions of people. You can work within the theory and apply it, but you must also be subjective and understand how the person is individually. This is basically the most rational way to apply it I'd say.

    What got you going on about this anyways? If someone misuses Typology in judging people, call them a complete moron and move on.

    All that Typology does is help you if you use it correctly. Don't abandon it because of how OTHER people use it.

    OneWithSoul, MBTI is like existential crack for a lot of these people.

    It's a salve that solves.

    There's nothing wrong with trying to understand the people around you, theorizing, etc. But this, yes. When it starts to become a way to discriminate and make false assumptions about people, typology ceases to be useful and begins to tread the line of detrimental.

    I see people writing "You're XXXX, of course you're _____" or before they get to know a person, have all these biases about what a person is supposed to be like based on type theory and/or others they knew of the type. They'll stick adamantly to their assumptions even if the person says it's not true. Making the person fit the type and not the type fit the person. A type doesn't encapsulate the sum total of a person; their tendencies, beliefs, abilities.

    I think for me it's just becoming silly and trite, but we'll see. This isn't so much of a rant on my part but just an :confused:.

    Yes, its interesting isn't it? It plainly meets our needs, yet is also clouds our vision.

    But once we see through a particular belief system, we develop a taste for seeing clearly. And we are less likely to be taken in by the next belief system. It's almost as though we develop a psychological immunity to belief without evidence.

    Of course seeing clearly doesn't solve our problems, but at least it isn't avoiding them.

    Believing without evidence is a bit like palliative care - it doesn't cure but we feel better.
