    It really makes no sense to attempt to deceive other people as to our personality "types" because the whole system is based on a grouping of stereotypes that folk typology has given us through the ages. Ascribing certain personality quirks and behaviors to people merely because you assume their basic psychological processing framework is a dangerous assumption to play with and is ignoring the real truth that is out there. The truth is that the MBTI is a system invented by the Nazi phrenologists to make the idea of ascribing certain characteristics to different people more palatable to the modern world so that they could better control people's thoughts and make discriminating against people a more acceptable notion. Discrimininating on the basis of race is no longer acceptable, so Jung kindly gave us something new that we can blindly accept as the truth and follow dogmatically like sheep, beleiving that we are all special and unique snowflakes and that there are others who are incompatible with us and are our enemies. When we examine the framework of this philosophy we will find that it is riddled with inconsistancies and logical flaws. For instance, different schools of thought attribute different abilities to the different functions that are being discussed, and other schools of thought reject the functions models completely and just have a system of dichotomies that describe people in very simple and stereotypical manners, failing to take in the intricacies of personalities of individual human beings. There are more outliers than data that falls into the research, which indicates that the theory is merely half baked and frequently abused by the less educated members of society to further their needs to stereotype and discriminate without having to actually question their blindly accepted beleifs. Therefore the concept of this thread is preposterous and an abuse of the intellect that the members of this forum seem to be so proud to brag about.

    Use of synecdoches like "whiskey chaser" to obfuscate what is nonetheless clearly your lack of modus ponenskial will not do. It will not do to employ devices as I can see past this dentrifrice.

    Your use of ad hominem attacks clearly illustrates your sad lack of supporting evidence for your argument.

    This form is pathetic. If its an attempt at humor i find it appalling. People should stick to their bonafide types and forget about this ridiculous shenanigan.
