    Remove the stereotyping and generalisations and most would have little to say.
    Why do you have problems with these threads? I have no problem when people are dicking around with the wrong sort of idea if it's all in harmless fun. I DO have a problem when people do this just to shit on others.

    One tends to lead to the other. It follows the "bullshit in, bullshit out" system except that instead of it referring to a computer, it's someone's brain.

    I always go back to the thunking in MBTI.
    "All ENFPs are like all other ENFPs.
    Some ENFPs are like some other ENFPs.
    No ENFP is like another ENFP. "

    The level of assumption and pure lack of thinking applied to typing some fictional character followed by the" Me too" brigade seems to only serve to make the ill educated more brazen instead of more attentive.
    Isn't it time for a colourful metaphor?

    There are trends in type relationships, but no universal rules. For example: S/N communication breakdowns, Si/Se Fi/Fe etc. opposing JCF type communication breakdowns. I have found that the people I immediately "click" with, and the people who I have a very difficult understanding of, can be just about any type. It depends more on other factors.

    1) Thanks, pal!

    2) If you're constantly trying to push them and provoke them, then why would they want to talk about anything of substance with you? ESTJs care deeply about respect -- almost above all else -- and they see that sort of behavior as extremely disrespectful.

    That's the trouble with people. They always insist on busting down doors, making everything abide by the same set of rules even if they're completely different things. No one ever just stays out of things like they should.
    Dunno what to tell you. Everyone's annoyed by different things.


    Remind me of the part where this thread, in any form, pertained to site members who fell under a certain type as opposed to the type in general.
    The type in general includes everyone who falls into that type category.

    Isn't telling someone how they shouldn't behave basically the same as telling them how they should behave?

    It's worse. If you tell them how they should behave, you're at least offering a solution -- telling them what not to do is like knocking down their building and then forbidding them to construct a new one.

    But isn't that kind of what you're doing when you tell an ESTJ not to tell you what to do?

    Crap, I'm so confused.

    At college, I've had problems with an ESTJ, an INTJ, & 2 INFPs. I have no negative biases towards others from these experiences, though.

    My best friends there, so far, have been an ESFP 6w7 & an ENFP 9w8 sx/so. I also have a good ENFJ friend & got along very good with an INFJ.

    Just thought I'd share my own too.
