    Well, remember too that this site is owned by the same people who own INTPc and in fact was seeded from that site a little over three years ago.

    IOW, a strong NTP influence should be expected, and a sizeable population of the non-INTPs who migrated here (and were encouraged to do so) were INFJs + NFPs.

    That was the original membership of this site, so it determined forum culture from Day #1.

    Personally, I see this site as less Ne-intensive and more Te-rejecting. I see a large chunk of Fi types who wander here and make their opinions known -- the [sizeable] minority of Fe people often get a backlash from the rugged individualism of Fi, even if the Fe users are mods.

    I think N is more inclusive rather than exclusive; the one thing it excludes is rigid mindset, it insists that possibilities and options exist and won't let people claim there is just one. But doesn't that suggest then that every view should be explored? N just doesn't commit to anything.

There would be behind the scenes influence by introverted functions I think. Maybe this is obvious.
    That makes sense theoretically; of course, in practice, on a forum where people can write and sculpt their contributes, the introverted function comes out.

    Go on INTPc, for example, and you'll see a lot of Ti+Si behavior (both introverted functions of INTPs) and little Ne or Se, and a strong reaction against Fe.

    This is why online forums are SO popular with introverts; they are freed from using their extroverted secondary and can finally find voice for their internal primary perspective.

    If we were at a dinner party, face to face, I'd agree with you, though: THe primary would be protected, the secondary would lead the engagement unless the introvert knew people well.

    This makes sense.

    It seems like a number of people do think there is a lot of Ne here though.

    I hadn't really considered that before. I suppose there is. I think I notice the Fi/Fe differences much more than Ni/Ne ones. I hadn't thought before either about the absence of Te. That's true too though. I'm wary of Te, but admire it at the same time because I don't have it.

    Te intensive people do not find this forum a good fit, in general; we're not structured enough in terms of the rule enforcement and in terms of the actual members. INTJs stick around, and a few ISTJs, but most leave; some go to INTJf.

    I heard this the other day and was wondering if others thought it might be true.


    I never thought about this, the fact that so many users are INPs and ENPs.



    I don't wanna drown anybody!!!

    And, I think a lot of STPs and NJs get to say their piece here.

    We, or at least, I, like them.

    This seems to be true for me also. Although perhaps it has to do with the fact that the subforums and topics that interest me also encourage Fi types to post.

    Usually they get annoyed and leave first.

    I would state no. I happen to be Ne dominant though so... take that with a grain of salt XD

    My point, however, is that Ne often ends up on wild silly tangents. Sure, in the bonfire, yeu'll see Ne run rampant, but elsewhere not so much. On the more serious subforums, generally the secondary functions take better hold. For example, in politics or religion or sexuality forums, my Ti takes over pretty quickly instead.

    While I can see Ne being thought of as "overwhelming", I think it's moreso that people tend to equate ANY humour and sillyness as being Ne... including any and all forms of puns, play on words, or anything that requires seeing things from more than one perspective simultaneously to get the joke. Which is most of the humour around here.

    As such, I can see where people get the idea from, but I don't think it's actually "running rampant" as they believe. Alot of it's likely false positives.
