    Default PB&J-Stop saying this

    P only means that the perceiving function is extroverted
    it does not make a person a perceiver
    IJs and EPs are perceivers
    IPs and EJs are judgers
    look at the dominant function people !

    T and F and such are too narrow
    please stop the heartache and refer to the nature of the thinking and feeling and the like


    it just hurts all over when i see you all spill the alphabet soup and don't properly clean it up

    thanks

    You're technically correct (assuming you're using the most common rules), but if you want to start correcting the mish-mash of multiple type systems and function theories post-collision, why stop there?

    I just packed my bags and left the mountain, personally. I do believe you can call what we do with our minds "using functions," such as Ti, etc., but it's the relevance I have a problem with. I have many reasons for taking this stance, and I've posted some of them here and there at various times.

    that sounds like a lot of work.

    at the end of the day, labels will always suffer the same loss of information, like analogue to digital. for what purpose... more efficient communication? besides further introspection of the theory, i haven't found it to be in any way advantageous.

    ...and yet i still post here for some reason.

    That's an exceptional way of putting it. And I'll add that the "conversion" isn't automatic, it's done by humans (yourself or otherwise), and humans are flawed.

    I'm just glad I can still refer to my sandwiches as PB&J. Misleading thread title had me worried for a minute!

    basically MBTI is a huge joke to me in the sense that aside from discussion or making observations, i have no intention of ever using it to make decisions. id have just a much fun discussing any sort of system, just cause i like to do that.

    hell, we could be talking about different colors and shapes of legos and what you can build with them and id probably find it just as interesting.

    yeah, i said it.



    im the blue one.

    Well...It seems you're the black to most MBTI-enthusiasts' white. I'm gray.

    I see 16-type as a valid tool for categorizing people, understanding them, predicting their behavior, and selecting methods of interaction with them.

    When people take it too far, and get too specific, they lose my support.

    i always had an easy time mentally dissecting people, MBTI didnt do anything for me except give me a bunch of labels, which i cant even really use without (as i think youre saying) people jumping to ridiculous conclusions about the attributes associated.

    this natural ability to understand how people work (just like the mechanics of something, like engines) must be an ISTP thing.
