    well i think they have validated E/I in humans but the effects were marginal and unimpressive. The problem with doing performance studies under stress has to do with ethics and all that hubbub - they can't push the letter of the envelope when using human subjects, but they did with rats and got a bi-modal distribution of performance with # of others nearby as the dependent variable, suggesting two populations: introverted and extraverted.

    They can't get similar effects with any other dichotomy (as far as I know), which casts a lot of doubt on the rest of the scales.

    When someone like SW who has a long history of posting rants about F Types, starts wearing a halo all of a sudden, what should we call his post - satire?

    Lol, then we have those who settle for affirming there superiority over objects. Its fun to watch these people try to do things and battle with inanimate objects. "I PWND that fridge". Sometimes I just feel like bowing down to that superiority, as I ignore the fact that its now laying on its side all scratched up and dented, thinking to myself, I am glad its yours and I dont own it.
    Im out, its been fun

    It's been interesting to watch SW's progression over the years... and yes, his views were always become more refined despite his lingering old forum persona.

    But it seems like many F think that being T is better than being F
    And that like they think that being T is in every way easier than being F and that they dont like being F.
    & if F was super nice friendly and T jerk that has no emotions, so Mrs. F would like to become Mrs. T...
    while the opposite does not happend? o.O
    There will always be people in the world who find it easy to categorize and then undercut the category they are not in.

    There are a lot of reasons why these biases in MBTI might exist... and the bottom line is, also, these categories are just human creations meant to help pinpoint particular broad frameworks. They are not definitive IRL, nor are they clear-cut IRL. In the end, we are complex people, and we are who we are... however we might be able to be categorized... so we [should] get taken on merit of who we are.

    OP- why do you personally think being T is better than F?

    I personally couldn't imagine being anything but an F. I wouldn't want to be. But there is no "better," everything within MBTI is pretty balanced. Everyone has their own strengths and weaknesses.

    Sure, there are situations I wish I was more T than F... but there are also situations where I thank God that I'm an F.

    Because of my F, I avoid careers that might put me in a position to fire people... I just think because of how I am, I wouldn't be able to fire someone. At the same time, I'm glad I have my F when it comes to dealing with people who have just lost a loved one...

    Because we think with our brains and you think with your hearts. And thinking with your brains is normal, so you guys are freaks for using an organ that is designed for the circulatory system.

    It's science. You can't deny my logic.
