I am totally with you SS, on the many different ways to explain why we are the way we are! I'm totally into evolutionary biology, psychology, life circumstance, etc., etc., etc. I see the ideas that Jung proposed intriguing and worth contemplating, simple as that. MBTI theory came from it, and I find the archetypes fascinating and helpful when it comes to interacting with others.
The personal reason I am obsessed with this, is because I am a purist, mentally and physically; I like to live and understand the essence of things. When I find some tendril of a thought that tickles something in me, I simply want to understand it from the inside out, to be an expert at it. To fully understand something to the depth that I desire, I have to break it down, then build it back up. What you are seeing, in my posts at least in this thread, is the deduction process with typology theory as Jung and others have proposed it. It's really no different than understanding any theory(ies) that you may be interested in.
What I find interesting is that you jump to the conclusion that I (or whoever you are referring to) think(s) in this way only; that I ascribe everything to type theory. This couldn't be further from the truth! If I don't focus in, I might either take something for granted, or miss something, which would be anathema to full insight and understanding. I personally (wouldn't dream of saying you are referring to me of course ) don't miss out on much in life. My day is filled with richness and simple living; ironically made more so by letting my mind and imagination run free with questioning insights of those who have come before me, and those who exist with me.
If you guys don't desire to do this, or if you find it annoying, that is very interesting. Do you usually get annoyed when someone delves into an issue deeply? Why do you find this sort of pure intellectual pursuit so offensive?
