    Good idea, ygolo.

    Athenian, with your permission and credit, may I put your snippets up on the site? I think they really do what we need them to do. We can always add things later.

    Absolutely. I formally grant usage rights to you. I'm flattered you actually want to use it, but okay.

    Normally used as "original post" I think, since it sometimes refers to a derail post (ie: the first post that spawned this thread, with "thread" being more line of conversation)... but I guess either one works.

    J/P -- Judging/Perceiving. Judging types don't always carry gavels. If you're a Judging type, that means you're diligent, focused, organized, driven, and anal-retentive.
    Hey, I really don't think it's fair to call us J's "anal-retentive" if you're not gonna call P's anal expulsive. :-p

    ha -- I've actually used the term "anal expulsive" before... but for some reason, it just never really seemed too popular.

    Thank you, Athenian (and others who edited), btw, for writing this up.

    Seriously, I learned about it in Psychology 206 (which was, to me, just a Gen. Ed. science course, but very interesting). Anyways. anal expulsive is just as much of a legitimate Freudian term as anal retentive, and they both refer to someone having not mastered their potty training stage, lol. Seriously. (Sorry for hijacking the thread.)

    I can't decide which is more awesome: protesting a stereotype by playing into it, or the term "anal expulsive".

    I propose the following changes, first for the 4 dichotomies:

    THE FOUR PREFERENCES, DEMYSTIFIED:

    There are 4 dimensions summarizing the spectrum of human personality. Each comprise 2 opposite behavioral dispositions, which makes these dimensions dichotomous. Everyone can behave in both ways but most people prefer behaving in one way more than the other, and that is what we call "preference".

    E/I -- Extraversion/Introversion. Extraverts are focused on the outer world of things or people. Introverts are focused on the inner world of thoughts or feelings. Extraverts come off as talking too much, and Introverts come off as unsociable.

    S/N -- Sensing/Intuition. Sensing types take in information in a concrete way, focusing on specifics. They tend value facts. Intuitives take in information in an abstract way, focusing on patterns. They tend to value ideas. Sensors come off as not having many ideas and being able to see the big picture, and Intuitives come off as airheads who don't know real world data.

    T/F -- Thinking/Feeling. Don't get confused by the labels: both types are rational and have feelings. Thinking types prefer making decisions based on impersonal data, such as how the decision will be logically correct or yield practical benefits. Feeling types prefer making decisions based on personal data, such as how the decision will impact them personally or other people. Thinking types come off as heartless and treating people like machines, and Feeling types come off as illogical and subjectively biased.

    J/P -- Judging/Perceiving. Judging type like to take decisions early, and tend to be diligent and organized. Perceiving types like to wait for more information before taking decisions, and tend to be adaptable and spontaneous. Those with Judging preferences come off as never really having been youthful, and those with Perceiving preferences come off as never really having grew up.

    Shouldn't the FAQ also touch upon Keirsey's four temperaments, seeing as how The Commune is subdivided according to his theory?
