    Some types probably come across as pretentious. "Hey! There is no way you are really into that, hahahaha". But, there is no accounting for the random stuff people have a genuine interest in.

    isfp is the most genuine. least, that is how I see it.

    By posting that video,"Your Brain on Drugs," you are now trolling the same member you personally insulted in the ESFP thread.

    From the FAQ:

    Trolls: No Trolling. Trolling is considered a post or a repeated pattern of posting that involves one or more of the following:
    o An attempt to bait a user into an off topic debate within a thread based upon a personal insult or "flame."
    o An attempt to make a user "go off" on the other through use of personal insult, allusion to personal insult, or inflammatory comments.
    o Repeated antagonizing or harassment of other members, spamming, consistent off-topic posting and/or history of thread derailing.
    In addition to specific posts, the posters pattern of behavior over time will be considered in coming to a determination on trolling behavior. It should be emphasized that the primary consideration will be the overall impact of the poster on other forum members, whether that pattern involves direct, indirect or subtle trolling.

    I'm just wondering how you extrapolate that the things someone says are false/exaggerated through a forum post? For real. Because it's REALLY hard to understand what a person is like through text. You know very little about their life/character/interests, so what things in a post do you look for as evidence of falseness?

    I think the only way I could assume such a thing is if I saw someone post two contradictory statements about themselves or their life. Then I could only assume they they were lying about something at that point.

    Absurd. No type is least pretentious. Everyone has an agenda to promote.

    It's a very strong vibe, that's all.

    I don't think anyone is truly more genuine than anyone else.

    I think the most pretentious people are the ones who believe in being "authentic" and "genuine," though. There's no such thing.

    People who go around accusing others of pretentious or "fake," remind me of this guy:
