    Extraverted Thinkers (being the Extraverted Thinkers they are) automatically think of systems as external rules and procedures to follow - and so some look at the MBTI and assume that this system is telling people how they should be acting. These are rules that are meant to "enlighten" people to the correct way they should be living their lives - what a horrible, soul-destroying thought that must be! INFPs must have it the worst - not only it is telling people how they should act, it's even assuming that it can categorise billions and billions of unique individuals into 16 categories of thought and behaviour!

    Introverted Thinkers probably see it differently - this isn't telling you how you should be acting, it's an attempt at observing and describing an ongoing process. It's not an external ruleset, it's an internal ruleset - an attempt to understand what is being perceived. So the author isn't really telling you what to do and how to live, the author is telling what they've learned from observation - "the spectator sees more of the game" and all that.

    Does this ring true at all? Or am I just talking bollocks?

    He didn't mean extraverts who are also Thinkers, but people who use extraverted thinking, like INFPs.

    I assure you that this judgment has my greatest sympathies, however, he was correct to point out that INFPs use Extroverted Thinking. An introverted temperament is defined by a dominant introverted function, however, this type can still include non-dominant Extroverted functions. Such as for example the fourth Te faculty of the IFP.

    Wow, epic fail. INFPs are qualified as "extroverted Thinkers" because their preferred mode of Thinking is extroverted--they prefer Te over Ti.

    Good job, dumbass.
    If you could be anything you want, I bet you'd be disappointed--am I right?

    You misheard that - it was "punny". We don't care if you find it amusing or not.

    Besides, SW's in reality a highly defective INFP. Clear as day. See above.

    Actually, I think I'm up to a count of 56 times Sim has used the word, "value" in his posts when discussing the functions.
    Perhaps he trolls INFPs to hide the fact he's INFP.

    Hey Sim, show us your Fi. You know you want it.
