    Question:
    Does it matter?

    If it happens, then there's your proof. 'Til then, I don't see why it matters much.
    I changed my type...

    What if balancing is just what it takes to throw it over the line ?

    Let me get specific.

    Can an INTP ever become an ENTP, just by becoming more people-oriented? No.

    Can an INTP ever become an INTJ, just by becoming more industrious and capable of following schedules? No.

    I doubt there's anyone here aside from Victor who would say there aren't fundamental differences between any two types which go beyond the letters. The differences are observable.

    Without a traumatic event, drugs, brain damage... taking place it is less likely it will happen. But evidence points to it being possible.

    Your view is the mainstream one, but supposedly scholars are starting to reject it as more studies contradict the mainstream view.

    Admittedly I'm not a professional psychologist dealing with brain trauma victims, but I know personality can certainly change as a result of it.

    It seems, though, that it's not the type changing, it's various other distortions of self.

    I remember finding some student's study on MBTI and brain differences a while back online. It wasn't that conclusive due to the sample size, but interesting nonetheless. I think that there are definitely physical symptoms( brain scans) that can show type to be a pretty stable trait. Theres a whole host of variables that can influence that though. I think it would be really cool if someone would invest enough time to do a more wide scale study on that.
    My cold, snide, intellectual life is just a veneer, behind which lies the plywood of loneliness.

    The whole point of type is to give people letters.

    Humans like collecting them.
    We write them, we save them, we give them on tests, we use them as test answers.

    They're everywhere.
    It's the human compulsion.

    And they fall off the back of trucks, and people grab them up. "Look! I got letters!"

    Okay, that's it: I'm sick of it.

    I'm an ISTJ now.

    nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!!!

    back to the original question . i'm not sure if types can change. there are certain things that i think are just too different to flip flop on such as S vs N. E vs I though, i can see its potential.
