    Because you were attempting to show me the validity of MBTI, yet you yourself have not given yourself a type on the forum. To me to this is more evidence towards my view of the theory, that it is too disorganised and unproven at the moment for it to be reliable.

    I'm sure there are lots of things wrong with my reasoning, but hey you wanted to know.

What are your thoughts?
    Take a look at this thread. I basically gave me best yet depiction of my understanding of MBTI and cognitive functions. I think I did a great job, but no one even responded so I was disappointed not to get any feedback.

    So, more a believer than a sceptic.

    It's extraordinary, isn't it? They always fall back on insults.

    But it's not so extraordinary when they come from a culture where insults are taken for granted.

    Furthermore because of this the inferior becomes steadily more unconscious and out of control. I thought i'd mention this because of your post detailing your aversion to Si.

    I tend to like this interpretation of the theory as it has a practical purpose that can be applied outside of typology, even if MBTI is a load of shit, at the least this induces people to take a more conscious approach to their life.

    Shame I ripped her book up and threw it in the bin in a grump along with Gifts Differing and Please Understand me. Although it gave me great pleasure to rip up the latter.
