    I can relate easier in terms of similarities to NTs of any gender over SF women.

That's why it might be so hard for some men to move on after they broke up with a girl they really considered "the right one". In perspective, women can see their past as really positive even when it was really negative and vice versa, whereas men are more realistic about things. But I'm not an expert on men, this is just what I can say from my and my friends' experience.
    Stuff like that is why I prefer to look at MBTI differences over gender differences cause I can't relate one iota.

    Who decide what is real? Are you now saying that women really are E, where men are I?


    No, it's not like that.F/T, MBTI wise, doesn't really have anything to do with what I said. Of course there are T girls and F men. But there will usually be a stronger element of feeling in T girls than in T men, in my opinion, and stronger element of thinking in F men.
    but...I'm now slightly confused what T-girls really is.


    No, that was not the point at all. It was more about the concrete/abstract approach to reality, not about feelings and thinking.
    Okay, so you are saying all men is really S then, and women N?

    What about the P/J? If you provide a scenario, I'll but down the last two letters. Then we have solved the F/M thing with regards to mbti.

    Not saying this is true, but it has been said that INFPs tend to take generalities a bit to far sometimes, due to subjectivity

    Is there a substance called abstract?

    Guess it depends on whether there's some form of correlation between biology and MBTI. It could very well be possible that NTs are biologically similar to other NTs and so gender doesn't really have that much importance. Gender in this sense is just socialisation of certain characteristics... like T being associated with masculinity.

    There's no denying there are usually differences between the two gender in regards to mental development. There are afterall studies on the idea of 'mean' female generally being more verbal than their 'mean' male who are better at image/rotations etc.

On the other hand, women do not watch the boat; they create the boat, and if the reality doesn't match their dreams they'll take a new approach to reality and recreate it (if only inside their heads) so that it matches their dreams better. I think it's really spot on, and I'd say it correlates with the "concrete/abstract" very nicely.
    Oh crap, I guess this explains why I didn't wait to sign up for mediation classes, recently applied for my passport to volunteer abroad, and am moving (today actually) to have more opportunities to pursue my dreams. Yep. I just waited, hoping that they would happen, even though you can make them happen by taking action.

    Here's my take one it:

    • Some "gender" differences are the result of Jungian functional preferences (there being more female Fs and male Ts, for example).
    • Some "gender" differences are the results of socialization.
    • Some "gender" differences are in fact gender differences that are not the result of the above.


    I think the above overlap in effect, and teasing them apart is difficult.

    For example, female T's appearing a little bit more F than their male counterparts (as some have reported) might be the result of women being socialized to act more in F-typical ways, or it might be some actual gender difference.

    I think a type-aware study of gender differences would be interesting.
