    Could you please make yourself a little more stereotypically INFP?

    Greater precision; not necessarily greater accuracy.

    The 2 might seem similar, but from what I remember from my 10th grade science class, they're different. Basically, imagine playing darts and tossing 5 unto the board. You hit all quadrants of the dartboard and the bullseye. In this case, you'd be accurate, since you hit the bullseye, but you're not precise since your shots are all over the place. If you tossed the darts again, but all the darts hit the lower right quadrant, you'd have precise, but inaccurate shots.

    .
    MBTI does have a practical pupose. It was plaigerised by Mrs Briggs and her daughter Mrs Myers to induct women into the war machine seventy years ago. And in the meantime it has been used by the military to induct recruits, and by business to induct employees.

    Cool Taking the flack

    So no one joins the Victor club without a flack jacket, not even Victor.

    Jack Flak is, of course, our role model. But he was foolhardy enough to operate without a flack jacket or knowing even how to spell 'flack'. Jack would always spell it 'flak' until he was shot down.

    And that's why we call him Jack Flak. His enemies called him Jack Flake, but they can't hurt him any more. So that's why we step into the breach wearing our flack jackets.

    So don't let it happen to you. I wouldn't let you come sailing with me without a life jacket, so I wouldn't let you join the Victor club without a flack jacket.

    Both words wouldn't exist if they were identical - however, they're so similar they're often used interchangeably... bottom line, I'm sure people will get what I'm driving at.

    Particular much?

    Indeed.

    I think you are equating subjectivity with wrong, which is not true.
    Not exactly; just because something is subjective doesn't mean it's objectively wrong for everyone, hell aside from physical scinces, I think most truths are inherently subjective. Really, it's because I can't find a practical purpose for this system means that it's not right for me.

    There probably are some uses for it though. One I can think of off the top of my head is psychological warfare to confuse an enemy. You could probably also use it to justify profiling of people you just really don't like or want working for you independent of their true MBTI type result. I mean companies use psychological profiling for a lot of jobs anyway (sometimes MBTI related?). Eh, technically, an interview is the same as profiling, so yeah.

    I wonder what other ways MBTI could be used in the world. *puts fist under chin and ponders*
    Well, if I were to design a fictiona lcharacter, using MBTI as a referational guide to create an initial mold of that character would probably still be useful. But in terms of understanding the human mind, I still think there's some flaws to it.

    Are you planning to create your own system?
    Not really; I would rather wait until someone comes along with their own system, one that is far more precise and accurate than the system that we use now.

    4913 personalities? I'll look into that.

    Aw damn. I'm not sure who this Jack Flak is, but he sounds cool.
