    The general perceptive abilities upon identifying who is a male or a female is relatively easy for the given majority of TypeC. It is true that most tend to adhere to distorting their particular projections upon other individuals with the basis of gender in play and with such, flirting/playful attitude may not be an open possibility upon the many heterosexual individuals towards their equal genders. Perhaps mostly apparent in males. To play the gender confusion game may not be useful for each individual if they wish to gain certain relationship types with such.

    Scenario:
    Male 1 goes and flirts with male 2 who portrays as female.
    Male 2 may or may not go with it.
    If male 2 does not go with it and mentions he is male male 1 may suffer mild self-humiliation.
    If male 2 goes with it then male 1 finds out male 2 is a male long afterwards a larger humiliating confusion occurs.

    One scenario, many many other possible ones that may be far more complicated. I wouldn't believe it's worth the effort. Plus, most people would really like to know the gender you are in real life.

Is it because you don't want it to be a factor in how people respond to you, or something else? I personally like knowing who I'm chatting with, and want others to know who I am. I mean absolutely no disrespect in this, and totally respect and understand wanting to keep personal information private. I was just wondering.
    Do you mean physical or psycological?

    Do you think people know? especially their psychological gender? Why not make up your own thoughts? Wouldn't this be more fun?

    I feel gender neutral much of the time and for me it's not the most important part of my self-identity. For me it's about the character traits and likes and dislikes that make me a unique individual. I don't see a need to hide my gender but I don't think its the most important thing to know about someone until you plan on getting into a serious relationship. For those you don't already know, I am a female who has gotten mistaken for a male a few times, probably because of being INTP.

    I don't hide my gender, though I can understand the confusion. It's well known isfp have the perfect blend of masculine/feminine traits.

    Gender is a grammatical term that refers to a set of classes. So biological sex is just one possible form of gender. MBTI is also a form of gender and it seems that certain people choose not to share that either. Why? Perhaps to resist stereotyping.

    I just meant info that helps to understand the other person in sweeping terms.

    Anal warts falls firmly outside that class of info.

    Heh, I just changed my avatar from Ariel to some random male animu character...

    Anyhow, as I've used Ariel avatars ever since I joined TypoC (up until today I guess), many people immediately registered that I'm female. Don't have any qualms about revealing it.

    People tend to assume that I'm male if I don't say that I'm female. That said, I listed myself as gender-neutral for a dare, and I actually came to like it better that way. I am genetically a female, but my social niche isn't feminine at all... most of my friends are male, and WHAT I am isn't WHO I am.

    A-M-E-N.

    As for avatars... I rarely use pictures of people. More often, they're abstract images or geometric figures. It's purely visual for me. Some people will bring up my "forum persona," which baffles me. I have a persona?
