    I do not think it is individuality so much as motivation. When people learn their type they tend to become a cartooned character of said type.

    Why? because if it is something that was previously misunderstood, coming into light as explainable, you tend to reference those points more often. And, this comes from the self perspective, as it is 90% related to being understood.

    They're defined by their differences. One has two kids, the other has twelve. The one with twelve, they call him Carl. He divorced the donut when he caught her sipping too much coffee, if you know what I mean. But the other one, Karl, he's happily married, they just don't want such a big family.
    Lol, typology tells you the shape of the cookie, but not how it is frosted.

    it's mostly the youngsters and the weak of self esteem who conform to the cartoon version of type because "they've finally found somewhere that they fit in!"

    I don't freak out about individuality but I do place a high value on it. We all have the free will to make choices and are not bound by what any manual or grouping says about us.

    That being said, I have come to realize and appreciate the patterns of behavior and what can be gained from them.

    There are two motivations for type theory.

    A) I want to explain myself.
    B) I want to get others.

    The latter is less likely.

    Everyone is a unique individual and categorizable at the same time, and that's not a contradiction.

    Yep, totally agree. It seems like a simple concept, but it is often hard to grasp. I know I didn't until pretty recently. I stubbornly clung to the idea that categorization was inherently a denial of humanity's free will. As such, I hated sociology class in college with a passion. It represented the worst of such categorization to me.
