    Jokes? I think you have a very good personal understanding of pretentiousness.

    Ya know what's funny about that Family Guy clip? That dude crying phonie is Holden Caulfield! Seriously his name is actually mentioned in the ending credits of the episode.

    Oh I was only saing ENFP as a joke. Personally I don't think that genuine is type related at all.

    There is the question as to which type might be seen as the most "consistent" alone, in public, with a certain group of people, and with another group of people, etc..

    at the risk of throwing too much stock in what type actually signifies, I'm going with ISTJ

    can you try to break it down? what i tend to find is that Fe can read as phony to me, even when it's not, because it's operating in tandem with a Ni or Si goal. Fi looks at the FJ and can feel that discrepancy. i don't know whose posts you're talking about, since the post was deleted, but i wonder if your Ti isn't doing something similar - picking up on another two functions being used in tandem to create something that looks like a whole on the surface but is actually two different functions with two different agendas. this is particularly true for P types, because we tend to think less in longterm agendas, and we can feel a difference when we're dealing with a J.

    How did I miss this gem? Ironically, this thread does not bug me.

    I'm still gonna say ISTJ. their overall mindset it "work hard, follow routine, get job done, come home to kids and relax". ISTJs are at work to do business and get their job done, not socialize, show off to friends and spend hours comparing accomplishments and gossiping. they are much more process and routine oriented. as a result, most of them care very little how they come across to people. most would just rather keep things simple and practical and have little time for the more "glamorous" things in life that most other types tend to want to go after.
    as a whole, Is are significantly less pretentious than Es

    See, I would argue that most ISTJs care what other people think about them more than most other types. At least I do. And maybe that doesn't necessarily make us 'fake' per say, but it's part of the reason I set high standards for myself... Because there are people around me who I believe hold me up to the same standards.

    Oh neato. Search function found me a thread exactly about this: http://www.typologycentral.com/forum...-types-do.html
    “Everybody has a secret world inside of them. All of the people of the world, I mean everybody. No matter how dull and boring they are on the outside, inside
    them they've all got unimaginable, magnificent, wonderful, stupid, amazing worlds. Not just one world. Hundreds of them. Thousands maybe.” -Neil Gaiman

    I've written about this before but I still can't clearly define what I'm talking about. I have a really visceral negative reaction to "pretentiousness" (In quotes because it's the closest word to describe it) and it's a quality I can detect within 10 seconds of meeting someone or reading a paragraph of their text on forums. Another way to supplement this description would be a lack of self-awareness; being totally oblivious to how they are being perceived.
    I feel you are pretentious for starting this thread. That's all, carry on please.
