I know I've done it. And that was stupid of me.
Any type can make any argument. Maybe their internal reasoning looks different, but all anyone here has access to is the output after cognition has taken place.
Its hilarious to me to see people say stuff like "that's a little cold-hearted for an F", or "that's too value-oriented for a T".
I've seen way too much of these posts recently and must say I'm losing my tolerance.
The funniest (and most stupid) instance of this trend is when people disagree and label the opposing poster as a type with fewer letters in common with them. Might not even be conscious when it happens. But it's just dissonance resolution.
It's easier to believe people in your type have your views. When that assumption is challenged, either you a) accept that your assumption is incorrect or b) change your perception of the other person's type. I keep seeing option b all over the place.
This is not directed at all of you, but jesus, people, MBTI doesn't just explain personality. It would be nice and easy if it was so aesthetic and simple. But its scope is soooo much more limited than many of you want to believe.
Edit: crap, I said "way too much" of these posts instead of "way too many".
