    I used to do the same for similar reasons, even the one I've got now isn't necessarily right. But it would be interesting to see how changing type changes others interactions on typology forums in a measured way, then again that could just be looked at as paranoia.

    Its also been done to death as a subject too.

    Some people sound so defensive...? When a simple question was asked in a non-threatening manner.

    Projections! Agendas! You're triggering my trigger warning! Watch out, the glukkons are killing the Mudokans for profit. Everything is a conspiracy!

    Just put INFP in your profile. I did that to fuck with someone who was whining about the same thing, years ago.

    I'm too much of an unsentimental Machiavellian douche for ENFP and too much of a whiny bitch for ENTP. I don't relate to either one among the people who post here.

    I list Enneagram because it fits pretty well, but I'm not represented well enough in the others to bother.

    I don't know. Part of it is I couldn't be bothered to yet and part of it is I'm not sure how far back into type I want to return. At this point I think the appeal of typology to me is that it simply remains a convenient common ground to think about & discuss things on, and outside of it this forum is just a pretty great place. Kind of like the forum is a regular forum where posters just happen to know about typology too.

    I don't want to be misjudged [as being like other people of my type], so I keep it confidential; however, I've shared it with people that inquired privately.
