I think I share far more on this forum than I ever would in real life unless you knew me really, really well. I also appear more organized (Mo's Ask Malia: Cooking Advice comment). I guess I might seem an ESFJ sometimes. But I think I'm more like a really open ISFP on this forum...
We all have different reasons for participating on forums on the internet. And often this results in particular cognitive functions to be used in excess that aren't typical to our MBTI type.
Do you notice you act differently on the forum that isn't characteristic to your type? If so, what is your MBTI type and how would you describe your forum-type?
INFJ - On the forum, I dunno, I suppose I'm more NiTi here than in real life. I share much more here than anywhere else. So far, there are only two people outside of this place that know as much as you all know. There are only a few people that engage my analytical side fully in real life...most of the time it's fairly clearly NiNeFe or some other mishmash of those three. In short, I am far less silly here than I would be if you were to meet me...that probably has a whole lot to do with being able to think carefully through what I'm saying. Off the forums, I can't do that as much unless it's e-mails, so I end up being less serious.
