Okay if you claim that learning about type causes people to act according to their type. How would you explain the fact that after i learned about type, i have grown to be much less like a stereotypical INTP?

When I give a detailed history and analysis of mbti it invariably gets relegated to The Graveyard where it can't be read by most who come to Typology Central.
This is the behaviour of those who identify with mbti as an institution and so naturally they seek to protect the reputation of mbti.
And interestingly when I analyse the history of mbti the response is personal attacks on myself.
So when I impune the reputation of mbti, they impune my reputation in turn.
The intellect is not met by the intellect but by ad hominem attacks.
You aren't providing intellect.
You are receiving responses equivalent to the level of actual argument/discourse you are providing.
Which is pretty much nada.
When you've actually provided a real discussion (I've seen it happen on occasion, and it was wonderful)
people have engaged you.
And we've had this discussion over.
I am quite sure that you already recognize this, considering your level of intelligence.
But now I led to believe that
since I do not come around as much as I used to
you find me such a scintillating conversation partner that you bait me so that I might engage you.
This way that you might have the pleasure of my company.
And me yours.

“Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft
Ah - so that's why you keep posting the same things over and over and over.
Is it working yet?
Hope is the denial of reality. It is the carrot dangled before the draft horse to keep him plodding along in a vain attempt to reach it. We should remove the carrot and walk forward with our eyes open. -- Raistlin Majere
