I love how so far we have one libertarian ESFJ; socialist, anarchist and liberal NTs writ large; and then of the two NFPs one is (apparently) a libertarian Democrat, and the other is a fascist (though... in fairness we're both Te-overload NFPs). Deliciously counter-intuitive.
Are you calling me a libertarian democrat? I don't even know what a democrat is (I'm not american).
I'm reading a lot of gripes about how one cannot fit themselves into an ideology. Guys--you're not that special. Picking a place in the political spectrum doesn't mean you are 100% all the time in agreement with the issues that place espouses. A brief surf over Wikipedia results in several political identification terms. It is inevitable that you will identify in large part with at least one branch...
With all the options that exist, my bet is that people just pride themselves on being "outside the system" and "independent thinkers", and some just aren't familiar enough to identify themselves.
Inevitable? Not at all. Plus you're heavily projecting.
Maybe people are a little bit more individualized than you think?
Ironic isn't it. We are on a personality board which specifically separates people into categories, yet when one is asked to identify their-selves with a political philosophy they get all individualistic.
I will be happy when the West wakes up and realize this individualistic concept is quite flawed and destructive.
