    Is this a common problem - having other members argue with you about your posted type? (Question is directed at anyone, not just the members quoted here.) I haven't had that happen, so would not have considered it an issue, but then I hesitate to generalize from my own experience.
    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...

    When I posted my type, a couple of members approached and encroached, so I kindly told them to buzz off and they did.

    It was so bad at one point, some people were getting temp-banned for it. Then there were the odd ducks who would meet people in person at meetups and then come back to the forum and bitch that they couldn't possibly be the type they claim to be. A friend of mine (ENTJ) was accused of being ISFJ since she didn't want to talk to many people at the meetup. Did it ever occur to some people that they were just plain boring and she didn't have anything to talk about with them? Of course not, that would be too easy.

    I think it looks better without it. I also don't think a single type captures me.

    I refused to post my true type once because I used to be one of those stereotypists and I linked Se/Si dom with lack of creativity or imagination, which isn't true, because mbti is based off of which information you trust more and the way you perceive things, not your ability to appreciate ideas or even come up with them. I think the mistake many people make is that since sensors trust facts over theory, they think that they will only be good at retaining facts rather than inventing. Sensors are still creative, they will just base their ideas off of fact and apply them to the here and now.
