    it seems like everyone think they're correctly typed and when they see anyone who claim to be of the same type as they are but for don't act or think in the same way that they do (or the type's stock stereotypes) they say that that person is mistyped

    Well then you have a wise view on it. Many don't however and they dont consider many types to have any qualities whatsoever, which is most likely the opposite of the original intention when this theory was adapted from Jung's work.

    Many descriptions are far more interesting than others and many people are won over by them, you may not glamourise it, (which is great), but there are plenty more that do.

    Ive hopped around quite a few forums before this one and after spending a few months on a forum it's easy to see these issues.

    This is the kind of assertion I was thinking of when writing the OP, particularly relating to people claiming to be INTJ. Ideally, this kind of disconnect ("member A is an XYZW like me, but doesn't act like me") should generate some interesting discussion that helps both people understand themselves better, regardless of best-fit type. Unfortunately, however, the interactions are frequently shallow and sometimes insulting.

    There's a fantasy game people play in their heads about themselves. The twists and turns in someone's psychology to fit themselves into the box they enjoy. And the box they enjoy is filled with a fascination. With enough ways to twist perception you can be so many wonderful things. Ni has wonderful descriptions doesn't it? So mysterious. Descriptions flying all over the place... The good thing about understanding Ni is that you find the Ni users explain the exact same thing about Ni in funny different ways. So then you have people who don't understand Ni not understand the what's going on between all those different descriptions and end up falling prey to the 'thinks they understand it' syndrome by interpreting one post of one Ni user in their own funny way.

    Though this is to all you wonderful public. I enjoy imagining that coriolis already knows the answer here but is trying to illuminate the issue for thought.

    INTJs are the sex. Posers want in on the action.

    Ni seems useless, except for poetry and swooning college girls.

    Ni alone probably would be useless. It is in combination with our other functions that it becomes so effective. (Same with the other functions/types.)

    Who are these wannabe INTJ jerks?

    Lets round them up and burn them alive. Like in a witch hunt.

    Is that what you want or do you want to know what is it that is so special about INTJs that makes other types mistype themselves as INTJs?

    Or do you simply believe they are confused?

    Edit - Oh wait. I reread the OP. You want both.

    interesting thread though. I don't know why I'm stepping on your toes or atleast trying to.

    Hmmm... why is it that I find hard to explain myself without using metaphors. No no didn't mean it in an intuitive way.

    Eidt 2 -

    I think the answer to the OP is obvious. No need for me to elaborate right? And I'm certain why you dear Coriolis made this thread. And it's not to help Qlip is it? No it's probably to be a fuss. Probably to start a witch hunt.

    Hmmmm....

    For a person who doesn't care at all, I sound awfully concerned.

    Maybe I just want to witch hunt someone today. And that someone is you.

    Not trolling though. Legit as legit gets to follow a question with another.

    Edit 3 -

    I'm being such a bitch.

    Oh I know I'm not an INTJ!!!!!!!!!!!!
