    I dont think this is the right way to thank orangey for pointing out an obvious flaw by unloading all the work onto his shoulders. The people who did the mbti should work on that. Or maybe this community should, we at least should have the best ideas for it

    If we want thorough descriptions they're gonna be pretty long, so I wouldn't dump it one one person either :P Perhaps we could write wiki-style descriptions where people agree or disagree with some parts in a thread, and the various parts only stay in if a lot of people agree. That way things that apply to one person of a given type won't be in a type description that is supposed to fit as many people as possible. And they'll be ISFP (for example) descriptions written by ISFPs rather than by INTPs eg. Keirsey.

    Not that I'm volunteering. hahaha.

    A different type everyday - so no need to type me anymore. But feel free to enjoy the sound of your own asscrack.

But all types are creative, and it's the style of creativity that tends to change among N vs S. Both Ns and Ss make this mistake, and S's who are creative automatically think they must be N because they are creative, and no one wants to be called "not creative."
    And every single SJ type description that tries to be humorous mentions a lack of creativity. Which is sad because we can have very inspired Ne moments from time to time.

    Personally, I don't think the issue is that S descriptions are bad (although they can be); I think it's that N descriptions are over-inflated. They make NFJs look like they have mystical powers, they make NTJs look like they are destined to rule the world, they make NTPs look like the only people capable of innovation, and they make NFPs look like figures of unsurpassed artistic brilliance which none but themselves can understand. Whereas, SPs and SJs look like... normal people.

    I agree that it would be better to just write up a better description. But I don't know other types as well as I know myself, and what's really needed is an N (or two, or three) who can write type descriptions in a less egotistical fashion.

    Edit: OMG, Wolfy! I'm so impressed
    Nice work!

    I'll organize this (in some form TBD) in the next few days whenever I have time to stop and think about it for a bit. If I remember. It would be a great community project.

    I was thinking on different lines, but I also like this. Maybe the two can be combined.

    Yeah, the original idea was a more true wiki. But I ended up working within the forum limits.

    *Perspective shift*



    Perhaps the people writing the type descriptions are sensors. What would be the ramifications?

    The wiki idea is a nice one, and it 'ensures' that no one person writes all of the type descriptions.

    Wikisocion pulled this one off really nicely, and I'm surprised that there isn't an equivalent for MBTI.

    if the thing you said, and also if N descriptions are considered more glamorous, then perhaps we'd be seeing "grass is greener on the other side" syndrome?

    if anyone has the technical know-how to make an actual wiki here, please share! I really don't know much about that kind of thing.

    I think I will be going more in the direction of collecting information from multiple people of X type (as many as will participate) and compiling it into one article, that may be updated later as additional info is given, since that seems the most technically feasible.

    But a "real" wiki would also be cool if it's not too much trouble to assemble.
