    I fully agree that the divide should be ST and SF and not SP and SJ. That divide, especially in relation to the existing NT and NF one, makes very little sense to me.

    I also think that STs and NTs can relate in ways that NFs and SFs cannot, and vice versa.

    I feel connected with fellow Fs whether or not they be Ns is kind of irrelevant.

    Intellectually speaking, people who are Ns I am more apt to connect to/with and emotionally speaking, people who are Fs, and Fi users specifically, I am more apt to connect to/with as well.

    What Colors is saying. The four "categories" that this board uses are based on what Keirsey thought was really cool. He thought personality types could be described to match up with what the ancients called "temperaments" and "humors". You know when you read Shakespeare and stuff, they talk about different "biles" and humors? They used to think the liquids in your body balanced your personality to act different ways. Keirsey tried to relate these 4 humors to four MBTI letter-pairs.

    Sorry for wasting your time if you already knew that, and were wondering "what possessed him to do a thing like that?" Because I think his combinations are no more or less relevant to type than any other combinations.

    Unless we build it into a moral value to do so...right? But even then, we'd be outnumbered.

    Because observable human behavior patterns fall much more easily into those categories. It doesn't mean it's the only way you can split people, but from my own experience, it does seem to make the most sense. Obviously, there can be tremendous differences between an ESFJ and an ISTJ, but if you really get down to their basic motivations in life, you'll often find they point to the same things.

    Or maybe it's that the people you connect with emotionally, you assume to be Fs, and the people you assume to be intellectual, you assume to be Ns.

    Because it's better to categorize based on similarity and difference among people than order of letters.

    ISTJ and ISFJ are simply more alike than ISTJ and ISTP.

    Name stereotypes of each combination of letters - really, try!

    There are only four dominant stereotypes in pop MBTI. Those are the divisions.

    It's a trained bias, nothing more.
