    I don't think it's possible to determine a trait like dominance based on forum behavior because there is nothing here for someone to take that they could not get more easily offline. The only advantage of this environment is that it is a more efficient form of communication. When it comes to information exchange, being dominant is not the most beneficial approach and so not a trait a person experienced in dominance would use here.

    In simpler terms, people acting dominant online don't know what they're doing so the behavior is not a terribly important factor to consider.

    Hmm...
    I think this forum doesn't have dominance issues because its entire purpose is to fully encompass different variations of people and it's far more playful here.
    If you throw a group of people in a forum and its basis isn't to specify the similarities and differences in personality type then it's less likely to be understood/more likely for hoards to start forming.
    Consider this place:
    16 personality types.
    Healthy/Middle-ground/Unhealthy traits.
    Tack on 9 enneagram types (18 variations if you're rolling with wings).
    Then throw in subtypes just for fun.
    While you're at it, socionics, because we're not all tipping the scales enough already.

    We're all far too busy trying to wrap our minds around all of that about ourselves and, potentially, any other member who crosses our path. Where do you find the time to have a dominance war?

    Yes, I was going to say that... The theory is basically meant to help people get along. So, it wouldn't be of much use if the people interested in it couldn't get along...

    I really can't make myself rate members here based on dominance. There are members I respect. Does that count? In that case Jennifer has my vote.

    This is true. Yeah, ajblaise gets a vote too.

    I've done a few polls on forum power structures.. from the top of my head, they indicate
    -INTP being the most active power-members
    -INTP and INTJ getting most benefit from being in the forum
    -ESTP and ENTJ getting the least benefit from being in the forum

    I am the Alpha and the Omega...of TypoC.
    Is it that by its indefiniteness it shadows forth the heartless voids and immensities of the universe, and thus stabs us from behind with the thought of annihilation, when beholding the white depths of the milky way?

    We have the government of MBTI and the loyal opposition.

    And the loyal opposition opposes MBTI root and branch.

    And it is interesting to note that it is not only the loyal opposition but the royal opposition that opposes the republican MBTI.

    And just as we have the government and the loyal opposition, we have dominance and deference.

    For there can be no dominance without deference, and no deference without dominance. They are two sides of the same coin.

    And the name of the coin is liberal democracy.

    And the purpose of liberal democracy is the limitation of power.

    So just as the loyal opposition limits the power of the government, so deference limits the power of domination, and dominance limits deference.

    And it is interesting that the opposite of liberal democracy and the limitation of power is schismogenesis. It sounds pathological and it is for it leads to the pursuit of absolute power and war. And as we all know, power tends to corrupt and absolute power corrupts absolutely.

    So although you may not like us, you need the royal loyal opposition and deference to limit the domination of power.

    But frankly I would prefer you to ask me - who is the most loyal and the most deferential? - who is the most courtly and aristocratic?

    It's interesting that you have a need to label members with a hierarchy of what the "special" ones are. This isn't the first "who are the ___ members" thread you have started. Maybe there is another reason behind it?

    Why do you think that is?
