    I list my mbti type because out of all the systems it's the only one I've been able to figure out, and I want to be like YEAH! LOOK AT ME I KNOW MY TYPE. Actually it's because I don't know just did.

    Moreover, if the forum had a mindset of "Oh hey, this person proves that ISTJs can think out of the box" rather than "Pff, you only believe this because of your SiTe fixation" I'd be all for it--as it'd help us all out in actually understanding typology.
    Yes, exactly.

    I think that giving partial identifiers or no identifier can be in some ways more educational than full labels. It encourages analytical thinking about how and why a person could relate in some ways but not others, or to open our minds that they may be coming from any perspective. It used to drive me nuts - to some extent it still drives me nuts. But that's a good thing. Our minds desperately want to fill in blanks, but life is full of blanks. We can cursorily fill them in to satisfy ourselves... or we can keep digging. Even within types there is huge variety, and the line between types is not as solid as it may sometimes seem. The theory is a shortcut to understanding, but it is also an illusory scaffold.

    Which is not to say that there is anything wrong with a fully fleshed-out profile. There are always more blanks to fill, as @Such Irony's signature reminds us!

    For my entire forum career, I've been the only consistently posting ESTJ. And for just as long, I've been told I'm "atypical" because I'm fairly healthy and well-adjusted. To be honest, I joined to prove a point, and I've been proving that point ever since.

    So, personal relationships and fun intellectual discussion aside, my presence here wouldn't have much purpose if I didn't list my type.

    So many people enjoy INTJ-bashing, that I thought I would provide an obvious and available target, since I really couldn't care less. (See: I can be civic-minded and insensitive at the same time!)

    I've been called a criminal, a terrorist, and a threat to the known universe. But everything you were told is a lie. The truth is, they've taken our freedom, our home, and our future. The time has come for all humanity to take a stand...

    Obnoxious as it sounds, I feel like I've won the typological lottery a lot of the time. I wouldn't choose to be anything other than who I am. Displaying my type feels oddly ostentatious. Like a Harvard grad who feels the need to drop the H-bomb five seconds into meeting them.

    At the same time, I feel that there's a lot of pressure to "act out" one's type when it is displayed prominently. Like, I feel less able to be myself and more conscious of a certain stereotype. It seems unbalanced after a certain point.

    I agree. It's helpful to all the rest of the members so they can understand type better. I started a thread on this a few years ago. It has always seemed dumb to me not to include your type.

    I don't see how.

    A member teasingly told me that I posted like the wind and that one never knew when I'd blow into or out of a discussion, so I decided it would be fun to use them as my type letters, BUT, I do list my latest function test results in my signature for the benefit of other posters.

    This too. I feel the need to prove that not all SJs float through life blindly following social norms and obnoxiously trying to force everyone else to do the same. Since apparently that is a commonly held belief around here.
