    "We grow up thinking that beliefs are something to be proud of, but they're really nothing but opinions one refuses to reconsider. Beliefs are easy. The stronger your beliefs are, the less open you are to growth and wisdom, because "strength of belief" is only the intensity with which you resist questioning yourself. As soon as you are proud of a belief, as soon as you think it adds something to who you are, then you've made it a part of your ego."

    My ISTJ friends really do sort people. They BOTH agree on the fact that "they know if they're going to like somebody or not as soon as they see them." I'm not sure, but I think that this is more of a STJ thing rather than a SFJ thing. STJs tend to see all of the faults in people. -__-
    I bet they'll put something in the air tonight, just to light your face.

    I generally agree, when one has the time to type a coherent message (eg on forums). I'm much more lenient when messages are charged by length (cell phones) or when timing is critical (gaming). Although, I do sometimes employ it for comedic value.

    It's a wondrous irony, though, that leet speak is actually very good for making passwords.

    Cells charge by length still? (Besides the 128 char limit that some have)? I thought it was per message via SMS or similar... Gaming is a bit different - if you aren't using VOIP in some way, then shortcuts are important. That isn't regular conversation though, that's like gesturing to your squad instead of talking.

    But over IM... It drives me batty;

    There was...

    This time...

    That...

    I had...

    HAD...

    to...

    Block...

    Someone...

    Because...

    They kept popping up on ICQ on me when I was trying to work. It's not that I didn't want them to write to me, but I can't handle getting the little flashing icon every two seconds..

    And...

    Then...

    I Have...

    to Scroll...

    Up...

    To see...

    What... they... wrote.

    Because... I Ignored

    Them... for too long.

    ARAGGGGGAH!

    My dad is an ESTJ, and he definitely sorts people. I've never known anyone to judge people as superficially as he does. With everyone, it's like he has this positive and negative column. When you do something he likes, you get a + checkmark. When you do something he doesn't like, you get a - checkmark. He does this with everyone, even his own family.

    There are basically only two types of comedy. There are things that are funny because they are true,
    and there are things that are funny because they are not true. :confused:
    niffer must find this funny because it's true, while Randomnity prefers to laugh at things that are not true.
    Some people (like me) enjoy to laugh at both types of humor.

    Same with me, as soon as I look at a person I know instantly. If am going to like them or not.

    I know sometimes, Ive done it on pretty dumb things sometimes. Like for example how a person is dressed how his hair is styled.

    Once I did this blind date thing - started talking to this girl on the phone and he sounded really cool on the phone, until I met her. She had combats on and she talked loud she was like a tomboy. And I actually said to her, you could have sorted your hair out, and maybe wore some other boots. Anyway, we are friends now - every-time we go out as friends she likes to embarrasses me, like she will start to hold my hand while we are walking or like pinch my ass and stuff and everyone is looking and its embarrassing as hell.

    I can't speak for other STJs, but you are right about me. When I meet new people, I can tell whether I like them or not almost immediately. It depends on how they carry themselves.

    I sort people too. I need to know where I stand with other people. I would sort strangers if necessary.

    About finding people's faults... let's say my bullshit detector just won't shut off. I don't normally point out people's faults in their face, but there is only so much you can put up with. Also, if you are working with me and I am the leader, the chance is that I will put you through hell. I am dead serious. Quality work and bullshit don't mix well in my opinion.

    What do you mean exactly by "sorting people"?
    "Hey Capa -- We're only stardust." ~ "Sunshine"

    “Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft
