    Default How/Do you assign the label "unhealthy" when speaking in this forum?

    These words are part of our forum meme: Healthy/Unhealthy

    "That person is not a healthy example of XXXX type."

    What exactly is your thought process when evaluating this? What is healthy/unhealthy in terms of how you use the terms for MBTI types discussed on this forum?

    E.g., a thread will pop up, with a poster describing a problem with a "friend", and ascribing a type to said friend. And, inevitably, the responses will start having words like, "unhealthy", etc. Are we ascribing anything negative to equal "unhealthy" automatically?

    <- dang it, I wanted to use the Kanye emoticon because it was so grotesquely annoying...

    Ime, I tend to just take in how balanced or unbalanced they are.

    Isn't that what we all do?
    Excuse me, but does this smell like chloroform to you?

    Okay, other frequently used words, "balanced/unbalanced".

    Describe what you mean by that exactly.

    When I want to trash a type but not have the Type Police freak out about it.

    Actually, I don't think I have ever said 'unhealthy' on here haha.

    I guess what I do is assess how much they piss me off, then. That normally comes from too much Te, Fe, or Fi. Or Si hahaha

    Not sure about on here, but in general, I'd say if they keep making the same types of choices or behaviors with damaging effects on themselves and/or others.

    Yes, many people are, IMO.

    I can't stand it.

    Yeah. I think of an unhealthy person as someone who repeatedly behaves or thinks in a way that has a negative effect his/her life, or the lives of people around them. That's true whether personality type is part of the discussion or not. If I mention type it's because some thoughts and behaviours are related to type, and I want to talk about that relationship.

    I think sometimes on this board it is used just to express annoyance with certain traits found in other types. And ward off protests of, 'But not ALL XXXXs are like that! What do you have against XXXXs?"

    Meh. People aren't mentally unhealthy just because they annoy me. And if I want to talk about annoying aspects of some-but-not-all XXXXs, I'll just say so.
