    Default Typing animals

    Hello everyone, I propose that we should render our MBTI complete by extending our typological analysis to animals. Let me kick us of with the following observations.

    Cats-INFP, obvious, right? Reserved, moody, contemplative (so, N) and of course, disorganized and disloyal (unlike dogs)

    Dogs-ESTJ (the opposite of cats, right?)

    Elephants-INTP (cerebral creatures, no questions asked)

    You do the rest.

    It will be an absurd game, even more absurd than typing humans without their consent.

    All I can say is that despite the way we like to "humanize" them, cats are actually creatures with a very limited mental capacity, even amongst mammals.

    Dogs, on the other hand are rather in the upper category, and elephantine intelligence might be on par with us. Elephants seem to have a perfect memory, and they are very empathetic and sociable animals (except for the occasional large solitary males).

    Absurdity is the essence of typology around here, isn't it?

    Why do you diss cats? They have very different type of intelligence from humans. I think you may be measuring animal intelligence based on human bias which is a different sort of humanizing animals.

    Anyway, horses are ISFJs and ISTJs.

    Parrots may be ENFPs

    Everywhere...I'm surprised that you want to type animals. To me, it's not a completion of typology, but a tacit acknowledgement of its weakness.
    Animals try to survive. What does that have to do with extroversion/introversion? If almost all animal behavior is driven by necessity, how is I/E relevant?
    Animals as thinkers? Animals can’t reason, at least not beyond a very rudimentary level.
    Animals as feelers? Maybe, as they often live in social groups. But this would probably be different from how humans ‘feel’.
    How would you know if an animal has intuition? Did your dog tell you that it just knows there is an afterlife, or that it has a hunch about another person or animal?
    As for judging or perception, how would you know? Since you can only go by observation, how does behavior reveal this?

    Elephants have mirror neurons, just like us, so they mirror one another, their movements and their feelings.
