    Loved your pun.

    I am saying that, by the very definition, intuitives should be more predisposed to examine generalizations and stereotypes. Therefore, be less inclined (hopefully) to make them.

    I see. I don't think I agree, though. I would think that intuitives would also be more likely to make faulty generalizations, given their tendency to try to recognize patterns and make decisions based on them. If they are in error, then stereotypes could be created or reinforced. Sensors should, in theory, make decisions based on individual impressions (however accurate or inaccurate) and reactions based one-on-one interaction. Maybe.

    Considering MBTI is one big theoretical system for stereotyping....um...and knowing what I know now about INXX, and how we like our systems, and our theories, it doesn't surprise me at all. It doesn't stop the fact I get frustrated though.

    Dude, seeing as the the majority of the forum are introverts, and I'm an introvert who was talking about her initial experience, you can't dismiss my comment like that. Just because it wasn't necessarily true for you, it doesn't make it untrue for me (or for anyone else). And perhaps I didn't make myself clear either.What I meant is now I've stuck around I know a few of the regulars and would be less hesitant,to ask if a offending post(or poster) was really as offensive as I thought it was. And you know get a bit of reassurance, that I wasn't being an ass too.
    Also, couldn't you tell this place is rife with cliques, and undercurrents when you first got here. I had to figure which way the wind is blowing, so to speak, and observe interactions to know who safe and who isn't.

    ISFP - 7559

    Screw the other types.

    I wish I had all the site's stats available through more than searching and adding...

    Half of the ISFJs posts are mine.

    I would still like to see the INTP, ENTP, INFP, and ENFP post counts.

    I am glad you feel comfortable here. It's a good feeling. I was just trying to point out that you made a blanket statement earlier, and that it didn't apply to everyone. Which is what you said just now.

    Yes, of course, but I don't really care about that kind of stuff. I'll interact with anyone, and, as you can see, I don't mind offending anyone's sensibilities. I know some people don't like that attitude, and that is completely fine by me. It takes all kinds.

    LOL, You didn't offend me at all. BTW, it's not that I care, but it's one of the first things I notice any where, even IRL. I take care not to upset the apple cart too much right at beginning.
