From the moment I came across the four letter system that revealed insight and depth into the human character, I became fascinated with it. I obsessed over the various types, and over time I came to learn more and more about it, in addition to other forms of psychological classification of the human mind. However, I have reached the point where such tools like the cognitive functions and the enneagram are no longer of proper use nor integral value to me. My reason for the abandonment of typology is not on the notion that such a thing doesn't exist (that is to say, not real); although as it stands I see it more as a psychological philosophy constructed from the perspective of other men, a philosophy that has little testing under the scrutinizing scope of science. My reason for it's abandonment has more to do with the sheer inadequacy of the system itself, and it's lack of constructive use within the real world. These systems, as wonderful as they seem, are but the subjective frameworks of crackpot psychologists who formed their own interpretation of human beings, thus obviously creating a folly, as even though we are all guilty of such methods of thought, even these extraordinary thinkers thought the world in a distorted way. The result is a system that is far, oh so far, from perfect; indeed it's rather broken almost; incomplete. Now some would object saying that a combination of these various frameworks can yield the proper insight into the human mind; but even that idea is ridiculous. Suppose we took broken or worn down machine parts, and placed them together in order to build a vehicle. Now of course the whole would be greater than the sum of its parts, yet the end result would still be a shoddy and odd vehicle; not very reliable. But if we were to construct better parts instead, then to put them together would give us a vehicle so magnificent, that it would speed us across the highway that is the human psyche, yielding far much more insight that what is at our disposal now. Thus to the current system, I'd say good riddance. I have more practical matter in the realm of intellectual thought to divert my attention to, but for those individuals still ambitious enough, I'd say that you hear my advice and venture towards a better construction for your tools of understanding.
