    I have no beef with Fi users in real life... one's snoring on the other end of the couch from me at the moment for goodness sake! This forum can have the weirdest polarizing effect EVER at times
    I guess it started out as an emotionally driven rant of sorts but don't think there is an intent to malign any type. It is more about discussing differences. By recognizing and confronting differences, don't we come to better understanding amongst each other? Isn't that what type is all about? It seems like most of the discussion has been in the search of mutual understanding of those differences. I'm not sure how that is polarizing.

    Just think of the "frankenstein" a INTJ mad scientist and a INFJ social chess player could create. It would be like the evil iRobots or something.

    I can think of a zillion more fun things to bitch about than basic building blocks of personalities... like inept customer service reps... or heating costs

    I blame Fi for inept customer service reps and Te for heating costs.

    I must admit, the thought does have appeal

    Pfft shows how much you know. Hitler may have been INFJ. Either that or ENFJ.

    I agree that recognizing and confronting differences, and bridging that communication gap, is important and is also the main reason for mbti being useful in providing a framework for those differences.

    I think what happens though, when trying to turn it into more than it is (i.e. using it to account for every difference between people), is the misapplication of functions. I think this is the main divide when it comes to these sorts of discussions. There are those who *appear* (note I'm saying 'appear', it might not in fact be what they're doing or proposing) to want to apply functions to every single human behavior as well as use them to explain all of the differences/communication gaps. Then there are those who argue against this - want to remove functions from the explanation of ALL differences, etc, and tend to see functions as somewhat limiting when it comes to explaining differences - at least, in real-world applications. I definitely see myself more in the second group.

    I have no clue what he was...from a purely logical point of view...it was a huge waste of labor. No logic, he had to be F
