Making it about type in the first place was a mistake, I made that original comment flippantly, although I stand by my last post.
    I think for an ENFJ or ENTJ mod to work, they'd have to demonstrate that they are capable of acting in an objective fashion and not show favoritism towards the sort of people they like having around. If they were capable of doing that, they might make excellent mods.

    If this is the case.. wouldn't it be in their best interests to want to shut down this discussion? Either way on that one, wouldn't they shut it down because a they don't want a "discussion to exist even in a format like this" -- one that "SJ-style authority simply doesn't allow"?

    For shits and giggles, I'll posit that it's Te that's to blame. Y'know, an orientation of thought where external facts and figures shape one's judgments? It creates an environment that fosters conformity of thought (Te) and quashes independent thinking (Ti). Moreover, Te lends itself very well to the creation of an org chart. You ever seen one of those things? Pyramid-shaped as all hell, with the major players on the top dangling the strings of the masses below.
    I've already tried to root some of them out, and I've noticed some people attempting to do it with some others, but it's either not responded to or other people jump at the opportunity to defend their SJ overlords' mistyping. The problem with this is the reward to effort ratio for this is very low, and since typology is so personal the act of trying to get someone to change how they view themselves and have others think of them can be equivalent to ripping their heart out especially in such a well-established setting. Sure, misguided Te can definitely be a problem as well, it all depends on the quality of input of the other functions guiding it, which is why it takes a very particular person to moderate such a sensitive ecosystem such as this. Too many hands spoil the broth as well, etc.

    I know it sounds harsh, but I think the key is worrying less about what other people think, and focusing more on maintaining your personal integrity. There are always going to be people who dislike you, no matter what you do. The only thing you have complete control over is being the best person you know how to be.

    And screw the haters.

    I suppose I can't refute a negative. But you and I both notice that they aren't shutting down this discussion.
    Sure, misguided Te can definitely be a problem as well, it all depends on the quality of input of the other functions guiding it, which is why it takes a very particular person to moderate such a sensitive ecosystem such as this. Too many hands spoil the broth as well, etc.
    I am outright asserting that it's Te as a function, rather than Si (SJs' common function), that is to blame for the mess this whole forum is in with respect to free discussion. It doesn't matter which perceiving functions feed it; it brings about a king-of-the-hill mentality. Te, by nature, is also blunt and binary -- "with us" or "against us." Those of us who would be "against" would not have their voices heard. A Te environment is all about quashing the sort of independent thinking that comes from Ti.

    Good thing I sent that command over the hive mind I hacked the other day before she spilled the beans ...
    An argument is two people sharing their ignorance.

    A discussion is two people sharing their understanding, even when they disagree.
