    So you see, listing myself as one particular type would only lead people to have a picture of me in their heads about me which is not entirely true. It would lead people to ignore what I am really trying to say and interpret what I am saying through prejudiced glasses.

    But that would also mean you'd have to delete your username and your avatar. Your type isn't the only thing people use when they want to know how to see the things you're saying. You'd actually have to delete everything and just put down one of two words that would describe the things you want to say (the words you use also affect the way people look at you) or we'd even have to communicate in smileys only. You'd make it yourself impossible if you want to make people judge you only on the things you have to say. You can better show who you are and who you want to be. I always try to show who I am, or at least a bit of a charicature so people even understand me slightly better.

    If you don't agree about my MBTI type, you can complain about it here. I've had plenty of people telling me I'm something else, in my reputation box. That's annoying.

    Oh, and Fidelia, you missed ISTJs in your big long post of mushiness.
    I missed a bunch of types in my long post of mushiness. I started, and then realized that everyone didn't fit into into the ISTJ mold exactly. For any types where I still need to investigate further, I just haven't said anything about them. Those types I listed are just ones with whom I've had the most interaction.

    the words you use also affect the way people look at you
    Backed up by the type you've listed.

    It is a common habit among people to judge a message by its messenger and not by its content.

    It happens with everything (MBTI type, age, gender, among many others).

    For example, at Uni, when I present an argument from my personal experience, most people think that my reasoning is wrong, since I´m just 26. But, if a thirty-something person says exactly the same thing, they show admiration for him.

    That´s why I think that it makes no sense to hide it. If they don´t aim at your type, they will go for your age, gender, or where you are from. They will find something to try to prove you wrong anyway. Although not always in the right way.

    Agree. Age plays a major role. But I've always managed to overcome this barrier (IRL) because I choose my points (Ti) and words brilliantly, use my Fe to convince the masses and don't forget I look bloody good .

    oh no!!! ESTPs really DO fall into a mold of behavior in a way!

    I DO list my type for educational purposes... too many people are willing to bitch about Sensors being dumb, or ESTPs being jerks so I am happy to leave my type up for people to see and prove that I can be a SMART jerk instead!

    Same here, but, a bloody good-looking man is seen in a different light. Here, a bloody good-looking woman is seen as either a slut or a superficial idiot. But this is part of the retarded culture of the place where I live. And one of my hobbies is to prove them wrong, not with words, but with actions.

    Because I don't know my type.
    Only the TP is a constant. Everything else is either tied together or up in the air.
