    From my understanding, MBTI types as a theory is set in stone. You are whatever type you're born into. However it does not mean you've correctly identified your type the first time around. You're flip-flopping labels of who you think your type ought to be, but your true type does not change.

    Obviously personality isn't just MBTI types. Psychology studies have demonstrated sufficiently that both nature and nurture affects personality.

    ^^ True. Although I wonder sometimes whether or not certain traits more dependent on genetics, and which are less so; it would be interesting to see how far type actually goes, and what actually determines it.

    oh sorry ya i didn't write that the way i meant it. MBTI as your type IS set in stone. i meant as a general theory MBTI isn't set in stone.

    and your right, personality is MUCH more then MBTI. i think that your bio-temperament is extremely important. enneagram is nice too. the big 5 is ehh.

    It definitely can change. People change over time.

    People's attitudes and behaviors can change over time. Personality type? I don't think so. With continued development of the functions you may see new attitude and behaviors but I'm guessing the general flavor remains the same with its strengths and stumbling blocks.
