    I'm kindof indifferent to that instance, but in general I'm pretty sensitive to it, probably because I was around when there was a million threads being made about why sensors all suck (in a bad way). It doesn't really happen much anymore, though. I mean, there are definitely people here who are biased, but it's not PC to talk about it openly anymore. A step in the right direction, I guess.

    But there she was clearly sarcastic. It's not really a joke either, it's just exaggerating. She could've said "you're all feelers" for being sensitive about something. That's been said before, too. I think those kinds of statements are more offensive to the people being referred to, because it's implying that (for example) intuitives are incapable of noticing appearances. And a little disrespectful, I guess. But not blatantly awful.

    Yeah, that got old really fast. That and old guys flirting with you "jokingly", and other similar "jokes" - I can't think of any now, but there are a few oft-repeated lines....everyone thinks they're a comedian.

    Eventually, you know, what? After two years of working there, it's not funny to hear that a dozen times a shift, and responding jovially becomes more and more difficult toward the last stretch of the 8 hour day.

    Going back to the sensor situation, we must layer on top of this analogy the reality that some people have true prejudice against sensors. The joke is just completely unnecessary. They hear it all the time, and even if you're joking, you wind up propagating the bias that some people really do have. Which makes you a semi-accomplise to that bias.

    At least when I was a grocery clerk I was getting paid. The sensors here encounter that "joke" every thread and it's not funny, it's frustrating.

    Considering who the OP of that thread is, I did not take it seriously. So no, no offense here. It was a clearly a joke, albeit not very funny because it is such a trite joke. If I imagine it as an F joke, or something which would apply to me, then I still would not be offended because of the above-mentioned points.

    The only time these stereotypes annoy me is when they make their way into more "serious" discussions about MBTI, because then they are no longer just jokes.

    Doesn't bother me! I crack jokes about myself all the time, and I'm a sensor, so why would someone else cracking a joke about sensors bother me? I'll get the last laugh when the intuitive is trapped in their own head and falls in a hole that I could have warned them about. Kidding!

    In all seriousness, it does seem like every MBTI forum feels the need to bash sensors. We be too dumb to keep up apparently!

    I read it as more of a skewering of sensor stereotypes than sensors themselves.

    Right...

    I wasn't offended by the post referenced, given the context/tone/poster. I also thought it was an equal jab at the high-and-mightiness N's can be prone to on any N-dominating forum. But then life is too short for me to get up in arms about most of this stuff, too. I tend to gloss over most isolated comments like that. I don't think I'm that easily offended. *shrug*

    Inspired by the OP in this thread:

    http://www.typologycentral.com/forum...ort-group.html
    I'm probably one of the least sensitive people on thie planet.
    BUT - I do not like it when people make ignorant, rude, and unfounded statements about anything, whether they are directed at me or not.
    I also do not like it when people get verbally belligernet after consuming alcohol.

    It wasn't a joke.
    It was a filthy rant with no relevance to the phenomena of people griping about the new site layout.
    Poor choice of words, poor delivery, overall bad form. Two thumbs down.

    Quote Originally Posted by MacGuffin View Post

    Again, it wasn't a joke, IMHO.
    I love jokes.
    At an early age I learned that if people can't laugh at themselves, that they are overly self important.
    But, that doesn't mean that it is necessary to sit and listen to people spewing ignorant shit at you or anyone else.
    The two concepts have nothing to do with one and other.

    I don't like ignorant stereotypes of any variety.
    Considering a majority of the human population are Sensors, and there are so many on this site that claim to be intuitives, I can't help but think quite a few folks are wrong.
    Why do people make derogatory comments about others? Often times it is to cover up their own feelings of inadequacy.
    So, when people here make ignorant references specific to intuitives being superior to sensors, I simply take it as a free notification as to their ignorance.

    I'd like to see how that would play out in real life.
    Excessive cyber confidence is rarely in concert with reality.
    It's easy to be rude and make derogatory comments over the anonymous cloud that is the Internet.
    But not nearly as easy to make such statements in the real world without getting a knuckle sandwich delivered to the jaw bone.

    It is not unique to this forum, the same ignorance exists on other type specific fora.
    I've verbally adminished a few intuitves who tried to sling Sensor hate at me.
    It was quite funny to witness someone go from having a superiority complex to being speechless in a matter of minutes.
    I don't like reading people the riot act, but I'm awfully good at it, so I fill that need of the universe when it is made known to me.
