    This. I'm sure you could get people who've attended psychic readouts who said that they were astonished. Ultimately, you're the one finding meaning in the toolbox. You're the one using it as such. I could probably read Moby Dick and find some ethic or meaning to define myself by, and live myself just as happily. I bet you could too. You could probably find some utility in a rerun of The Simpsons as well. While you may not think so now, just you wait... just you wait til you see Mr.Burns and say "Wow, that's so me!"

    Don't worry, I have pride.. I couldn't possibly call myself stupid if that was not the case.

    My real point though is that I tend to avoid abstract, theoretical discussion. I'll gravitate towards the concrete or anecdotal, and see theories play out in a personal way. MBTI discussion can be indirect, and need not be limited to an area with a big sign that says "MBTI Discussion". If some recognize that, they can enjoy this site more. I mean, you get to interact on a variety of subjects with all kinds of types. It's fucking cool. What's not to like?

    I think, Tater, you are becoming truly wicked.

    One thing is to be unsure of ones type, another is to reject the idea altogether that you could be a type, or to know ones type but refuse to say and instead put something silly in the Type-field.

    Let's not confuse the two things.
    Are you specifically soliciting Jaguar here? You still haven't told anyone why one ought not to have MILF in their box. Who cares? (besides you).

    So you're suggesting that it can't be used to help you understand yourself better? From this perspective, you're comparing it to a psychic readout or the meaning within Moby Dick?

    If people want to list WARM, COLD, FREE, or even PISS, SHIT, or DICK as their type, I don't care.
    (FREE and DICK are already in use. )

    All things are subject to interpretation whichever interpretation prevails at a given time is a function of power and not truth.
    -Friedrich Nietzsche

    There is not one big cosmic meaning for all, there is only the meaning we each give to our life, an individual meaning, an individual plot, like an individual novel, a book for each person.

    No. Please don't try to stir up trouble needlessly.

    Judging by your type you cared enough. Though to be honest I find it quite funny - I take my hat off to you for that one.

    However, I don't get why you are so up in arms about your right to put a silly 4-letter word as your type, on a forum devoted to a topic you don't believe in to begin with. Way to fight oppression, man!

    (hint - within a social group to which membership is compeltely voluntary and which deals with a very marginal interest unknwon to 99% of society, establishing rules to faciltiate the stated purpose of the group, is not an act of oppression. That goes for Jaguar too).
    "Of course we spent our money in the good times. That's what you're supposed to do in good times! You can't save money in the good times. Then they wouldn't be good times, they'd be 'preparation for the bad times' times."
