    I see my posted type code is a shorthand, a way of saying that, for the most part, I have the preferences, tendencies, and outlook of this type. Absent type codes, I might include some of these details as caveats in various messages, to help the reader better understand the perspective I am trying to describe. Eventually people will get a sense of my personality just from how I write, but new or irregular members won't have that yet.

    On the flip side, I am not very good at relating others' type codes to who they are and how they express themselves, especially online. I use them mainly to cross-check when the discussion becomes type focused. In other words, if someone is posting about how Ti-doms operate, I might check to see if they are one.

    I haven't read all responses so my apologies if this is redundant.

    I wish people would list their types because so often they reply to a thread that asks about how different types experience something, and they say, for instance, "I always do X...." but I have no idea what type they are so their response isn't helpful.

    Yes. When the types weren't visible, I found myself giving "negative" types to people I didn't agree with. I also realized that I couldn't stereotype them or attribute a negative quality about them to a "negative" type I knew I didn't usually get along with.

    Why do we have it? Because this is a personality theory site? Does anyone really need more reasons beyond that?

    That really annoys me too! It actually annoys me anytime. It's a personality site, yes I do want to know your personality site, I wouldn't be on here if I didn't.

    I like seeing people's types. I think it can break down stereotypes when you see posters of a certain type expressing outside of what's expected for their type. Concerning posters who do not list a type, I do find that it's not very hard to make a decent guess at it over time and then you have their type in your head anyway when you read their posts.

    The only time I don't like the types being listed is when it makes people disregard someone's opinion (which I see happen to Fs & Ss), or assume their viewpoint or the tone of their post based on their type.

    I like it because it adds context to posts that do not make sense if you do not know the type, though I realise it can occasionally lead to stereotyping or disregarding of an opinion based solely on type.

    So, it can go either way, depending on the person. That means that revealing the type is not the problem, but people react to it according to their personalities. Which is fine, that would happen anyways no matter what the information was.
