    I also happen to think they're a little silly in that they put labels on people, however they're mostly benign in my opinion. If someone uses personality 'types' to reinforce stereotypes that's more of a reflection on them.

    I would absolutely refuse to participate if my employer wanted me to complete a personality test. No good would ever come from some HR putz having a personality test result.

I think it can have to do with upbringing, personal interests, etc. His parents are pretty close-minded, practical people who have zero interest in introspection or abstraction. Similarly, too much of either of these things freaks him out. He likes certainty.
    I am a little sad now. I feel like you have so much insight to offer...and can't share that irl

    I think he's dead on right, the MBTI is something that gives people an illusion of understanding themselves and others, and is a joke. In any attempt to investigate it you'll find that there are exceptions and contradications all over the place, and people only believe in it based on a small amount of truth which it does possess.

    I don't think anybody cares about typology until that person is curious whether or not something is wrong with him/her or someone that they know...or a relationship between the two....

    I'm going to agree that this is the case for many people. I had zero interest in any of it until I had a total breakdown. Good point.

    The one main person I've encountered that hates on MBTI always bashes the test rather than the theory. I try to illustrate the difference to him but he doesn't even seem to get what point I'm trying to make.
    You hem me in -- behind and before;
    you have laid your hand upon me.
    Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,
    too lofty for me to attain.

    Is it an ESFJ by any chance?

    I don't know a whole lot of ESFJs but you get the "umm, why are you so interested in this?" response from them.
    RobertCalifornia: TL thinks im black
    RobertCalifornia: shes my homegurl
    Hive: arent you
    SpankyMcfly: wait... you arent?

    No I'm pretty sure he's some kinda INXX actually.

    My ESFJ bestie responded to me like that, too. I learned after that to just keep talking anyway and she'll have to listen.
