    But for the record, it sort of annoys me as well.
    To be honest, I knew there was a similar thread, but I was too lazy to look for it.

    I show my type because I like labels. I secretly wish that people wore name tags with a list of personal information. Socializing would so much easier. Never again would would people have to waste each other's time always asking "What's your name?"
    In my case, I have to ask twice because I never remember people's names.

    Edit: Ah... I got off subject. Ignore that.

    I also prefer to know people's types and having type in the profile is most direct and useful.

    I think depending on how long you've been on the boards, some people's types you will alread know, either from previous conversation or from before they changed their type.

    Otherwise, it can be a little frustrating not knowing someone's type. Since the forum is ostensibly also about learning about people and intertype relations, knowing what type everyone is gives you a much better idea of type as well as type stereotype -- meaning once in a while you may be surprised to see what an XXXX says.

    And knowing their type can give you an idea of where they're coming from.

    Then again, you can say you're just trying to put people in boxes by demanding to know their type, but considering this is a site on personality typing...

    I think I'll change my type to something else, just to get back at them.

    I don't think I fit the description of an INFJ but if it means that much to you all then so be it.

    i- since the E's are trying to lure me to their side. N- because it's true. f- I can actually make decisions by thinking things through. J- The alternative is unimaginable.

    That's my reasoning for showing my type. I figure it'll become self-evident by seeing me and other ENTP's posting that we're not all the same. If I see three posts all saying different viewpoints but the authors all have "INTP" under their avatar, it only reinforces the idea that there's more to a person than type, displays the diversity within type.

    Also, taking into account that people sometimes mistype themselves and change their minds later about their type, it'd be silly to give the letters under their avatar too much significance, but it's useful all the same.

    I think it's pretty cool when someone does genuinely realize they're mistyped and change it. Cos then all the people who were reading their posts before thinking "Oh yeah, that figures, that's JUST what a xxxx would say, they're saying that because they're this type and that's how they think" are like...

    What if you don't know your type? I mean how accurate can an "online" test be? I'd like to be assessed by a professional (seriously) and have them tell me what type I truly am. Can you pick up various traits from another type?. (e.g. SO, bf etc.) I believe so but what do you think?

    This is an issue for me. I came here to learn but am striking pretty much out on that. lol I was tested 5 times at work (the long professional test) and I read so much here that doesn't fit my type posted by others who are supposed to be mine. On the not listing type... that doesn't help me learning either.
