    Nobody loves us.
    Everybody hates us.
    Think we'll eat some worms.
    (mmmm... good... you moron, that's spaghetti!!!!)
    It's OK.
    I like you and want you here.
    ES people are very cool and lots of fun!
    Even though I'm an isfp, can I be an honorary ES???

    you can be an honorary ES if you'd like!

    I generally find that taking out my pent up hostility towards the deserving to be cathartic enough that a pity party is usually not as needed

    though whining IS fun!

    Well, actually, I'll tell you what inspired this thread. And it's actually not meant to blame N's for an S prejudice. It's to make light of my own prejudices. I won't name the exact type prejudice, since I don't want an uproaring. (Many of you may know what it is, anyways.) We'll call them xxxx for now Many xxxx's on this site are annoying. Point blank. They suck. (Not all of them, but a high percentage of them. Just to clarify, I can make a list of awesome xxxx's from this site as well.) In real life, I don't really notice that much. I just realized that this site led me to believe that half of this type must be horrible. Therefore, this site actually created a prejudice.

    This typology tries to categorize people in 16 different types. Of course it creates prejudices to some extent already by categorizing people into 16 different ways, which shrinks the idea of individuality a bit, by saying that all people have the same "tools" of interacting with or viewing the surroundings etc. The only prejudice here though is that every person can be categorized in one of that 16 types, or in other way explained, that there is no other function than that described in the typology.

    You can either use this knowledge of typology theory to learn to understand that there are, if you agree with the typology, in general a set amount of "tools" (the functions), but every individual will use his prefered functions still in an unique way and in different proportions, therefore remains individual. Or you can just create wrong prejudices by saying "Feelers ALL will behave like that and Thinkers will do the exact opposite", then you have the prejudices which probably are meant.

    It is like you categorize people in people who smoke and those who don't. Now you can say that smokers see things different than non-smokers (like they wouldn't care about their health or whatever) and therefore make your prejudices. Or you see that there can be several reasons which could lead to being a smoker a non-smoker, and that each may think and behave different still.

    Does this site create predjudices or does it merely reveal them?

    Insecure or idiotic people will always try to use any criteria they can find in order to posture themselves as "better" than others; it can be IQ, amount of friends, popularity, or N vs S.

    The structure of this forum does nothing to encourage this, it's purely a property of the mongrel race that comprises our membership

    There are so many mistyped people here, you can spend a month hating on an ENTJ, only to find out they are a wacked out ISFJ.

    If anything, this site teaches you to resent individuals, not their alleged type.
    Listen to me, baby, you got to understand, you're old enough to learn the makings of a man.

    Why would it have the opposite effect?

    When does labeling ever serve to abolish prejudice?

    I've noticed an ISFJ prejudice in you young man. I've seen you say, "everyone here is an ISFJ" as if it was the biggest insult in the world.
