    Default Post Filtration

    A rep I just received inspired this thread. A post of mine was referred to as a pragmatic viewpoint, and I thought to myself, had I authored that post under a different type, would I have ever received such a comment?

    Please share the filters you apply when reading the posts of members of various types.

    What do you ready yourself for when you read the post of an ENFJ, for example? An ENFP? An INTJ? An ESTP?

    Added: Alternately, do any of you see a pattern in how people respond to your posts? As if they're seeing the type and not you?

    It's actually funny (considering how long I've been around here) but I try not to pay too much attention to the type of the poster. I find myself mostly rebelling against MBTI. I don't want it to influence my judgement too much. People might type themselves wrong, so any kind of opinion I form of different types can be wrong as well.

    I mostly concentrate on the poster instead, so with different posters I could ready myself for some kind of a "typical" response from them. But there can be so many different variables that I'm unaware of that influence posters and how they express themselves in threads at any particular time, so I always keep an open mind and see what happens. I like to observe.

    I don't filter out anybody nor concentrate more on specific types or people here in general, everybody is equal in my mind.

    Haha. Yeah. They mostly don't respond.

    I still think it's individual and dependent on particular posts, not so much on type. People who seem "softer" get softer responses and people who are more confrontational, get the same returned. That's the pattern I've noticed around here.

    I think I am mildly dyslexic
    I thought this thread was titled "Post Flirtation" and I was wondering what the heck it was doing in the MBTI section

    I don't have any preconceptions of types.. I would be lying if I said I didn't notice patterns.. But every person is unique and that is how I like to keep it.
    However after a while, I am able to guess with accuracy how a certain poster might respond.. but its based on the individual.. not their type

    (I do not feel that way about the rep I received, btw. That was merely just the spark of inspiration.)

    Having been on both sides of the fence here, people are a lot more shocked when I say something smart with an S under my picture than with an N under there!

    I usually only check out the post if I think that the person typing is nuts... then I see what type crazy people are!

    I don't pay any attention to their type. I don't notice whether they pay any attention to mine. I try to learn individual personalities.

    Similarly, I wonder how women with cutesie usernames feel.

    I read it the same way haha also mildly dyslexic

    And yeah I don't associate the content of most posts to type at all anymore..I did somewhat in the begining but now I just associate with the poster.

    Yup, I prefer to have no type listed cause it impacts on how people that don't know you interact with you. I've legitimately gone through INTJ, INTP and ENTP as well having ESTP and ENFP listed as my type on MBTI forums and the way people responded to me changed.

    It's not always a bad thing, more interesting to see, although annoyingly the worst judgements based solely on type that I've been on the receiving end of are when I've had ENTP in my type :steam:
