    Default Public Service Announcement to Paranoid Fi doms

    No, typology is not an evil conspiracy intended to subvert your right to individuality and self-expression.

    No, any and all attempts to categorize anything about your belief system or behavioral tendencies do not constitute a malevolent international plot to rid the world of original ideas.

    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.


    Your friend,

    Thank you for this.
    A colleague of the great scientist James Watson remarked that Watson was always lounging around, arguing about problems instead of doing experiments. He concluded that There is more than one way of doing good science.
    It was Watsons form of idleness, the scientist went on to say, that allowed him to solve the greatest of all biological problems: the discovery of the structure of DNA. It's a point worth remembering in a society overly concerned with efficiency.

    Indeed ! As a matter of fact, I think anyone who doesnt think differently, never really has thought differently.

    I think Ne doms in general are prone to paranoia. I'm also convinced that coupled with an unhealthy Fi/Ti, a person can be just unreasonable. That being said, Fi makes more emotional demands on others so we (I) notice it more. And it seems like Fi users are more obsessed about being seen as "unique" or "authentic" than Ti users, who admittedly have their own brand of crazy - but this thread is about Fi, so...

    Either way, excellent post, sim. I know exaaaactly what you mean.

    What else is new?

    Personally, I commend Sim on soldiering on, when he clearly has difficulty with the subject he's apparently trying to understand, as it doesn't wanna cooperate within his system
