    I think that some NFPs just like to piss off NTPs.

    This is silly. Some people really have advanced beyond mere type. No need to make a fuzz about this just cause you havn't.

    I think he's pointing to the notion that they often make a fuss about it. As per another thread in this sub-forum.

    No, you're not so extraordinarily unique and special and unusual that your personality automatically defies all forms categorization and analysis.

    No, typology is not turning the world into nineteen eighty-fucking-four.

    No, studying typology does not ruin your ability to feel emotion or appreciate others on a personal basis.

    Yeah, we get it already--you're so special and original and creative that you can't possibly be boxed into one of sixteen arbitrarily distinguished categories [no matter how broadly defined they might be]! Yeah, we get it--you have paranoid delusions that any such categorization will turn everyone into robotic slaves to the evil Te agenda to squelch all forms of self-expression.

    And yes, everyone realizes how emotionally threatened you are by any attempt at categorizing your personality and realizes you're having a histrionic meltdown over nothing when you make these kinds of outlandish claims.

    The solution, you ask? Grow up, stop taking everything as a deliberate attack on your super special unique feelings, and get real.

    So, to get back to the OP, does anyone believe that SW's specific charges retain any validity?

    Not that I'm asking you to speak for him (ironic, given the thread context), but what basis of thought do you think could give rise to the frustration that he (or another like-minded Ti user) could experience with certain Fi dominants?

    Is this phenomenon limited to Ti users?

    Indeed I agree. The funny thing is that NTP's don't see it or don't believe it possible, duped by a mere Fi user!

    When fishing one must use the right bait.

    Why do NTP's think they can't be lured and hooked into circular, unwinnable debate? And then, after engaging in fruitless discussion, blame the hysterical, histrionic, deluded, illogical, PARANOID Fi user just because they find a POV frustrating?

    I mean c'mon, give credit where credit is due. sim, you got punked. Making this thread is proof-positive.

    I don't think it's "Fi" users, since I know more than one INFP that would think that other thread was idiotic. I think perhaps it's inappropriate use of Fi? Or just plain trolling, not sure either way.

    That kind of thread drives me insane, too, whatever that equates to on your function question.

    Thumbs down Rich in High Emotion

    When we learn, we experience emotion. It's as though emotion lays down new pathways in our brain.

    So our antennas are tuned to high emotion. You might say high emotion is feeds our brain.

    Normally we go to the theatre or to the movies to safely experience high emotion.

    But we can also experience high emotion within group dynamics.

    Usually a group experiencing high emotion will draw people in, but will occasionally spin someone off.

    So although high emotion feeds individuals and the group, boredom will kill a group.

    And fortunately this is a well run and tolerant group, rich in high emotion.

    Ti users like to systematize and categorize. The (healthy) Ti-er's systems are open and highly susceptible to tweaks and alterations based on new data (and new nuances in data) that they discover and analyze. We like things to fit our system to the highest level of "accuracy" possible; it helps us to understand. This is especially pertinent to understanding people, as the typical dom/aux Ti-er does not have a good grasp on Fe, at least not until they've worked on it a bit, so a more impersonal analysis makes things easier for us.

    Fi-ers don't like to be put into an impersonal system because it makes them feel like they are just another variable in an equation. They associate systematisation with being "robotic" or "predictable" (and I'm not really sure what's wrong with a person maintaining some level of predictability, as this points to integrity and consistency in thought, but whatev). For us Ti-ers, a concept does not need to be simple for it to go into a system; we are very good at breaking things a part, regardless of its level of complexity, and using each part to build a model. The models help to predict, but many times a piece of information goes against the model, so we change it. The model does not "box" people in (at least not in a confining sense), as it is highly susceptible to change; the model is just a device for organizing information. The "box" that we are making around people when we use typology is not built with bricks and 2 by 4s; it's made with legos or k'nex, so we can take it a part and rebuild it again with ease.

    Fi-ers don't seem to understand that everything of any mild significance is a variable in the Ti-er's equation. It's what we do; it's an instinct that we revert to when attempting to make sense of the world. We are not assigning labels to anybody because we think they are predictable or lack depth. We are able to analyze and assign labels even to the variables that are complex in nature (ie, personalities), as we have a natural knack for it. For Ti-ers, you don't have to be simple to become part of our system (so quit associating systematisation with simplicity!), as we readily admit that the system is increasingly complex. It's hard for me to figure out why Fi-ers continually find this insulting to their "uniqueness", as each system has nuances in itself that make it unique.

    EDIT: Please note that any Fi-ers to which I'm referring in this post are the same Fi-ers to which the OP is referring. Obviously this is not applicable to every single FP out there, and it perhaps may not be a typical and/or "healthy" use of Fi.

    Good question, Elaur.

    While I can't identify with the exact character of SW's Fi complaints, I can offer my own frustration at having my internal emotional states erroneously dissected and examined by a third party.

    Not that this necessarily aligns with an Fi-specific complaint, but when it happens, it often rapidly changes the context of the conversation when my (presumed) anger over a given topic is mistaken for a subconscious, quasi-Freudian projection over some unexplored angst.

    It seems terribly pretentious and judgmental. What's more, it sidebars the conversation into a weird psychological space that rarely resembles the fundamental point we'd been discussing up to that point. Talk about obfuscation.

    It's a real buzz kill.

    Why does it matter if some people push back against categorization? It is limited and so pushing back can help create balance. People are complex beyond what is quantifiable and the threat of that is the source of many coping behaviors from being overly controlling, shy, overly nice, always pissing people off. It is often an attempt to use a behavior that gets people to respond more consistently. In some ways I think it might upset people to realize that people are complex, unpredictable, and there is not a way to define and predict that behavior with much certainty. MBTI provides a way to systematically think of people and so it can be hard to let go of or to consider other possibilities. MBTI labels or not, people are chaotic. We all have to deal with that fact.
