    I've said this before, personality types are models for human responses. They aren't perfect, they are just a model. Just because people use them inappropriately doesn't make the model less valid (or more valid)

    I spend my life thinking about how people act, thinking about why they act, what makes them act that way, what benefit they get from acting that way. Comparing how someone looks, stands, dresses, to other people. Personality typing is just another way to think about it.

    Rather than other people taking it too seriously, maybe you are taking them too seriously.

    We can only hope this subforum is as boring to most people as it seems to be. Maybe they didn't see your messages.

    That's almost verbatim what I wanted to say earlier, except replace "not seeing boobs" with "LA leaving the forum."

    THIS is another thing I've been thinking. I mean, of course we don't ACTUALLY think Typology can be applied to all those things. Half of the time it's a mockery of stereotypes.

    We're analyzing every single strain of information we can, drawing unreasonable assumptions, and just taking this thing way too far.

    We fail to see the basic and general fundamentals at which Myers Briggs really revolves around. We've gone off on irrelevant tangents. We've lost touch of reality. Reality being that MBTI is not as serious as we presume it to be.

    But take this aspect away from our forum, and we don't have a forum.
    Yeah, I know. It's ridiculous.

    I disagree.
    Is it that by its indefiniteness it shadows forth the heartless voids and immensities of the universe, and thus stabs us from behind with the thought of annihilation, when beholding the white depths of the milky way?

    Once again, let me explain myself.

    This was all sparked, because people link MBTI traits to every known personality trait and every physical and mental characteristics that it is too much. It doesn't give any other factors a chance at influence.

    Plus, is it so wrong of me to say that people do take it too seriously? How can you tell me that that is not legit.
