    I'm still annoyed that I was taken for smart more frequently by those who don't know me well when I was an ENTP than as an ESTP... though I'll admit to using that to my advantage and playing dumb so that I can sneak up behind them on occasion

    Posting as an N and as an S can definitley give you a different perspective on some people and their prejudices... it's kind of pathetic really

    I actually have gained a whole new appreciation for S types since joining this forum. If there are any people that I would consider my "go-to" people, it is almost exclusively S types. They like knowing how to do stuff themselves, and have put the thought and attention into learning. They usually are excellent sources for music and art as well.

    Yeah - I have found typing myself useful because it has allowed me to realize where my natural shortfalls are likely to be. That way I can either more intelligently seek out people who may be able to supplement my perspective with functions that I don't use, or I can consciously learn from other types what qualities make people respond well to them. While I'll never be an ESTJ in any sense, I learned from my ESTJ ex that:

    1) People respond much more warmly if you "impose" yourself on them and approach them first. They feel like you are already friends, rather than feeling like there is a question whether you are good enough friends to impose on them. I used to be much almost exclusively a responder than an initiator.

    2) It is worth taking the time to have a standard place for things that matter, rather than three possible ones. (I used to be amazed that he could direct me over the phone to any drawer in his apartment and I'd be able to find what it was that he needed). Still working on this.

    3) Learning to do things yourself makes you valuable to other people who end up consulting you. Having a wide variety of skills you are good at makes you very attractive as a friend or romantic partner and certainly opens up opportunities professionally, even if the training was not formal.

    4) If people don't express an interest in a certain subject or food immediately, sometimes it is worth trying to do the Green Eggs and Ham thing. And sometimes it works and people love you for it.

    I don't think type is all that important anymore. Even where it's useful, it seems to often lead to pigeon-holing than understanding.

    But only because people choose to make it so. While no one can be a complete spokesperson for a type, I've learned a lot by picking someone that I feel is a consistent representative and bombarding them with questions. It's been most helpful.

    ^ This.

    When someone exemplifies a type and displays their type it is very helpful/useful, especially when you have questions regarding their type!

    It annoys the crap out of me when someone has no type listed, or some other four letter word that's supposed to be quut, unless we know that individual like HappyPuppy is an ENFP and she's trying to be funny, but still.

    If you know your type, and you are on A TYPOLOGY FORUM, for fucksake!!!!

    List your goddamn type, please!!!!

    Even then, shouldn't we simply be doing that by merit of them being another human with unique perspectives and experiences, rather than as representative of a putative type? I guess I'm just more inclined toward holism than categorization upon subcategorization.
