    I understand your perspective, but I think the assumptions that others make about us are their own burden, not ours. I talk about MBTI online and offline, and it doesn't really matter to me what people think about me for it. As @Kayness said, it often requires a great deal of context and explanation. If I feel like discussing typology I'll ask someone if they know anything about it, or what type they are. Some people do, and it's made for good conversation. Others are clearly not interested.

    We talk as people because it's a bonding experience that helps us feel like we're part of a human society. Even to the most reclusive introvert, that makes it worth it.

    It's ok I wasn't sure what 'outside of typology forums' entailed lol. My misunderstanding.

    Don't let your personality type define you, define your personality type.

    That should go without saying but I dont control other people's perceptions....

    Telling something about yourself and recieving feedback can be a source of information that far exceeds the disadvantages of having your private information exposed.
