    What you might call helping "better understand where people are coming from" I call jumping to conclusions and stereotyping.

    It's a special decoder ring identifier used to read a label, uhh, but only works if looking through a skylight when trying to find the four letter code.

    this

    At times I've left it blank or put something silly because I wasn't sure what it was or thought that my opinion of what it was bothered some people.

    Yea. Seriously. Like if that pilot 'Sully' were to say he were a hero when asked (for landing the plane in the Hudson river saving everbody's life) then he wouldn't be considered one!?

    The guy landed a jumbo fucking jet in a river, and it was full of people, who he saved all of their lives!! Yes, fuck yes, he can say he is a hero. Just have honesty is all.

    Because of the pitfalls of starting to attribute too much to type, and allowing a person's type precedence over their communication. Take away listed type, or parts thereof, and you've lost a shortcut around their point of view. The reader is more likely to slog through analyzing the information and how it relates to the poster's personality instead of attributing to the label and calling it a day.

    Given that this is a type forum, I enjoy seeing people's listed types, and like to think it lets me understand them better. But I think it's valuable, too, to have deviations from the theory.

    My main point being that I like allowing variation. To me it is more valuable to see "ixTj, ENFP, iSFP, ntj" than to see "ISTJ, ENFP, ISFP, ENTJ". The first grouping tells me more and makes me think more. The second grouping is more helpful to a newcomer, but there are plenty of resources for newcomers.

    But that is the sense type's forte - to float. It is what is principally wrong with humanity - everyone's lookin' for ground.

    To the sky, I say!

    I stopped displaying my type when I stopped personally relating to one piece of type theory and began identifying with the whole.

    My old supervisor had a friend like this. He would sometimes time him to see how quickly he revealed this to a new acquaintance.

    For me, it's like putting my name on my office door. If I take it down, I don't stop being me, I just get more questions.

    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...
