    Wowza.

    But, really, shouldn't we know the rules at least, before we blatantly shun them? Then we can at least have a more common language with which to communicate that which we love so much. Otherwise, we are incessantly recreating the wheel, and misunderstanding each other. And innocent folks can get burned on the great cross that is folk typology, if they buy into all the stereotypes that are inherent in it.





    Hey everybody! We're all gonna get laid!

    to victor: no way. atrology is made up of myths that relate to nothing and which pot smoking hippy infps keep alive to have something to talk about when they get stoned, or are looking for a romantic partner. at least typology has a basis in fact, even if it's loose and we can't fully understand it because it's stuff of the mind, which is perpetually effervescent and convoluted.

    Sure. However, the key to knowing the rules is knowing when to break the rules. It's what's advanced human knowledge all this time

    That sounds a lot more enjoyable than what SW is talking about.

    No, before you can break the rules, you have to know the rules. That's what my daddy always said.

    Nor does it mean your opinions on which kinds of typology are more plausible than others are objectively verifiable or universally accepted.

    Try to keep in mind that your decisions regarding which ideas to label "folk typology" are subjective. If virtually everyone on the forum but you is a folk typologist, what do you even get out of communicating with people here? Clearly none of us are qualified to discuss this topic at all, so you should probably just stop wasting your time on us.
    If you could be anything you want, I bet you'd be disappointed--am I right?

    The fact is that MBTI has had no double blind test for seventy years.

    Now, MBTI claims to be a personality test. And if this were the case we could expect many double blind tests to be applied across the world every year.

    So after seventy years we could expect many hundreds of double blind tests performed in many cultures at university level.

    But there is not one double blind test.

    The silence is eloquent.
