    Default do you think, subconsciouly people pick a type to hate than every person they've

    Only the type I don't like does that.

    Nah, anytime that I've blanket hated a type, it's because their type reminds me of somebody I already hate. Once I'm aware of it I get over it, eventually.

    Given a lot of the feedback on ESTJs and ESFJs that you see on this forum and others - I'd say yeah, that's spot on.

    Sort of, but I think it's more specific than that. Like, they'll pick up on a stereotype, like xSTJs are bossy and have sticks up their asses and insist on sticking to stupid rules for no good reason, or ExFJs are phony and meddlesome and want the entire world to behave as if we're in Pleasantville, and then whenever they see these traits in someone they'll assume the person must be a certain type.

    They do it plenty for positive and neutral traits as well as negative ones.

    I hate a wide enough variety of people that it's not really possible for me to do that.

    I've seen it on the forum, though. Big time. (Especially in the way that @SilkRoad just described.

    This is what I was thinking of, too. Certain groups tend to get villified as a result of people's negative experiences combined with stereotyping.

    I have read so much crap on the intarwebs saying xSTJs like to enforce rules or xSFJs are straight out of the Stepford Wives.... I think it's easier for people to group and villify than to accept that they have personal weaknesses that make them averse to others with certain characteristics. And perhaps it's stereotyping, myself, but I think honestly Ns are more likely to do this, because our perception is auto-set on generalizing - not to mention that a lot of Ns aren't the most socially graceful, and many seem to experience difficulty interacting with more expressive, pragmatic types.

    It's just easier to write people off as that personality type than to come to terms with your own hangups.

    God, yes, people do this all the time.

    They type a person in their heads. If they don't like that person, then that draws them away from that type. They then get drawn away from any else who they believe has that same type and make generalizations about the type itself.

    It's magical, circular, and a convenient but terrible heuristic.

    Pretty much this.
    'One of (Lucas) Cranach's masterpieces, discussed by (Joseph) Koerner, is in it's self-referentiality the perfect expression of left-hemisphere emptiness and a precursor of post-modernism. There is no longer anything to point to beyond, nothing Other, so it points pointlessly to itself.' - Iain McGilChrist
