The myth that we're selfish just coz we talk from our own perspectives (using 'I') and ditzy (just coz we enjoy being optimistic, lighthearted and like to joke about doesn't mean we're not up for serious conversation)
That all NFs:
* are tie-dye-wearing hippies who read Rhonda Byrne books
* react DRAMATICALLY! to every little thing, yelling like Eliza Doolittle and throwing dishes and paperweighs at their hapless SOs (okay, I've never had a SO, but I think this is accurate)
* think sensors (SJs in particular) are stupid drones (mind you, people like Saint-Exupéry don't help vanquish the stereotype... )
* are rebellious and temperamental, unable to see why things like laws exist
* love children
* share their passions readily
* like hugging strangers on the street

yeah, totally. i always thought it was more polite to talk about myself so that others wouldn't feel forced or led in conversation, and that they could choose to speak when they saw fit instead of me putting them on the spot. and also because i don't truly understand anyone's opinion but my own.
to find that this sometimes comes off as self-centered has been surprising, though understandable.
