    Why don't you blow that stereo type instead?
    Work on your issues instead of denying their existence.

    The issues I bolded in my previous post on this thread are issues that I don't have. HOWEVER, the issues I DO have are contained in 1. the un-bolded, 2. the enneagram 1 description, and 3. no description online (as they are specific to me).

    Just because we're saying "No, I don't have THESE issues", doesn't mean we're saying that we don't have issues at all.

    Yeah, I think I have every right to disagree with a description which attributes like 3 positive aspects of my type and 100 negatives. Sure I have also negative ones which I won't deny, but I know I have more than 3 positive aspects about me, but for some reason people seem to focus only on the negatives of INFPs. Of course it bothers me, I am not an insensitive rock! I won't cry because people who don't know me are making judgements over me, but it would be nice to just hear a positive word sometimes too.

    Some examples: In INFP description it says "attracted to the counter culture", which is formulated in a negative tone as if they were just out of principe against everything of culture without real individual thoughts. On ENTP description it says " appreciates strangeness", which sounds more positive. Strange things are strange by definition because they don't fit to the typical cultural image, so it is nearly the same thing, just one does seem to do it just to follow some crowd blindly while the other is appreciating it by own thoughts. Not to mention the fact that the description of INFP is twice as long as ENTP, but only because it is filled with a bunch more of negative stuff, of which half of the list seems pulled out of the ass to me tbh or redundant. The "not punctual" / "prone to lateness" stuff is actually two times the same, and loner / solitary / hermit is redundant too...

    Things which are totally not me, actually mostly the opposite, are bolded (not all unbolded are necessarily typical for me, but they can happen):

    creative, smart, idealist, loner, attracted to sad things, disorganized, avoidant, can be overwhelmed by unpleasant feelings, prone to quitting, prone to feelings of loneliness, ambivalent of the rules, solitary, daydreams about people to maintain a sense of closeness, focus on fantasies, acts without planning, low self confidence, emotionally moody, can feel defective, prone to lateness, likes esoteric things, wounded at the core, feels shame, frequently losing things, prone to sadness, prone to dreaming about a rescuer, disorderly, observer, easily distracted, does not like crowds, can act without thinking, private, can feel uncomfortable around others, familiar with the darkside, hermit, more likely to support marijuana legalization, can sabotage self, likes the rain, sometimes can't control fearful thoughts, prone to crying, prone to regret, attracted to the counter culture, can be submissive, prone to feeling discouraged, frequently second guesses self, not punctual, not always prepared, can feel victimized, prone to confusion, prone to irresponsibility, can be pessimistic

    INTP

    disorganized
    Messy

    Not all Ps are disorganized or messy. I've never found these descriptors to be a very reliable indicator of J/P

    likes science fiction

    Not all INTPs like science fiction and several other types do. The statement seems very stereotypical- if you are this type than you like this.

    familiar with the darkside

    This is just plain weird. Why would INTPs be any more or less familiar with the darkside? And what exactly is the darkside anyway? Very vague term.

    does not think they are weird but others do

    My experience has been the opposite. Most INTPs know they are rather different from the norm and they are aware of ways in which they might be perceived as 'weird' by others.

    does not like happy people

    Depressed INTPs, maybe. I don't see this applying the the majority of INTPs, or the majority of any type for that matter.

    more likely to support marijuana legalization

    LOL! Personally I support it but I don't think political views belong in a type description. Do INTPs tend to be more liberal in their views? Maybe, maybe not. I do think INTPs are more likely than average to challenge certain political beliefs. They aren't likely to believe in something just because the majority does.

    The rest of the stuff may not describe every INTP but I do see INTPs as having more of a tendency towards those behaviors than most other types.

    No type description is failproof. There will always be people of the said type who won't fit it 100%

    Um well Similar Minds is a an excessively negative web site, anyway. It basically describes all the types by their weaknesses, in case you haven't noticed. There are lots of other type descriptions on the web.

    Just go to Google and type in "Keirsey INFJ" for example. It should be more helpful.

    I am doing this for fun.

    attracted to sad things -> wtf ...
    disorganized -> not really, i know where my things are.
    acts without planning -> i plan
    more likely to support marijuana legalization -> haven't decided about this yet...
    likes the rain -> wtf!
    can be submissive -> no way baby cakes

    oh okay, the others are pretty true. meh. so what, lots of different types have the same negative traits. a lot of these things are basic human issues. be aware of weaknesses, improve weaknesses.

    Most general problem most often is to make people sensitive for the fact that they are having errors. if you could do that with some good type descriptions you could prolly even make a lot of money with it .

    But you definitly would need to love humanity for that, to put so much effort in it
