    Default Typology is Pointless

    Anyone else think that MBTI, JCF, enneagram, Socionics, and all that inbetween is a complete bunch of bull shit?

    To a degree yes, to a degree no. I've noticed how people of a similar type tend to give off a certian vibe of sorts. MaleINTJs, Female ISFPS, Female INTPs Male INTPS and ENFJs are some examples.

    There is no knowledge that is not power.

    If it seems pointless then you have done something wrong/ haven't found the point yet.


    "Complete bunch of BS"? Trying to take it as something scientific?

    By your own criteria, check out all of that BS in your signature.

    It's vaguely helpful. Try not to have high expectations and/or substitute it in place understanding people on their own (individual) terms, and it probably won't be "pointless". MBTI never sold itself as much more than that. People seem to forget that Myers repeatedly used the word "preferences" when describing functions. Like Se/Ti/Ne/etc is like a compass pointing in a general direction. It doesn't mean a specific destination and what exactly you will be doing, where you will be sitting, who you will be talking to, and what your dog's name is.

    Pointless sometimes, useful sometimes, harmful sometimes. Accurate sometimes, inaccurate sometimes. Complete BS, no, I'd disagree with that.
