    I'd say type is just another step, or different step towards a humans need for self-actualization. It isn't necessary, but very comforting.

    eh. i'm sure we are biased because of it. but then, if it weren't type letters, it'd be username, or avatar, or how we divide our paragraphs, or something else. it's probably all of those things.

    plus, once someone knows your type, they can make the same assumptions. and your type is pretty darn likely to come to light in a typology forum, anyway.

    It does effect the way I see the message. Without the info I'd be misinterpreting NT jokes all the time.

    It's simple, When I was testing as an INFP and had that posted , people treated me differently to how they do now that I know I am an ENFJ ..
    If I put ISFP there tomorrow, people would change yet again.

    I've always digged people like Jaguar or Slant who didn't have anything under their name - so people treated them how they post. The coolest thing about it is that, especially at this most members that have posted in this thread who are immersed in the community, you can treat people how you see is fit. So, it's more genuine...It seems too systematic when people are reacting to your type and not your person.

    I actually see you more xNTJish... I don't know why. Maybe it's the globe avatar?

    The avatar is symbolic with emerging from a dark place. I go into T as a shadow function .. Sometimes my subjective emotional reasoning gets on my nerves and I defy it. But if you look closely , I don't think I am really fooling anybody.

    I have always been intellectual and well spoken. This is actually quite contrived and a cover for an extremely sensitive, reactive and easily confused person.

    I am not a T .. I assure you

    Ha! Ok, let's say you're not, but I still get the vibe. Which kinda relates to the topic: With most of the people here (the people I don't remember) I definitely take advantage of the type description, but with the rest (all the power users, and then some) it's more about the vibe. Like in your case.

    (Maybe there are some power users I put in the "type description" category because they just seem so stereotypical representatives of their type)

    I don't come here to listen to amatures opinions as to MBTI (why when I could easily look up an expert). What I do appreciate is seeing the different MBTI types disclosing their type and acting naturally.
    yeah me too...i've learned more by watching how different types communicate than i have reading about them.

    It's a guideline, as much as is knowing someone else's religious/cultural background or any other tidbit of information.

    It's supposed to enhance communication -- enabling connection, avoiding pitfalls.

    If someone purposefully misrepresents their type to cause issues, that's bad faith.
    If someone uses someone else's type as a way to dominate or control them, that's bad faith.

    And...
    ...in the end, you're still dealing with a person, not a type.
    All communication should be ultimately focused on the person, not the type.

    “Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft
