    I came up with something similar to this a while ago and think it still stands: Idealistic, Neurotic, Freak-like Jewels.

    Acronyms is the subset of abbreviations in which the letters of the abbreviation form a pronounceable "word", like NASA, or laser. I have never heard MBTI types pronounced in this manner.

    Apparently there are different definitions in use. It is obvious which definition is used in this thread, though.

    The Dutch can: see 'Nijntje'.

    From the link:

    The term acronym is the name for a word from the first letters of each word in a series of words (such as sonar, created from sound navigation and ranging).[1] Attestations for "Akronym" in German are known from 1921, and for "acronym" in English from 1940.[2] While the word abbreviation refers to any shortened form of a word or a phrase, some have used initialism or alphabetism to refer to an abbreviation formed simply from, and used simply as, a string of initials.

    Although the term acronym is widely used to describe any abbreviation formed from initial letters, most dictionaries define acronym to mean "a word" in its original sense, while some include additional senses attributing to acronym the same meaning as that of initialism.
    So at best, calling type codes acronyms is another error that has crept insidiously into daily usage, like "waiting on" to describe a delay rather than service, or the misuse of nominative case in phrases like "just between you and I . . . ".

    Are you rearranging the order of MBTI type codes, or just misspelling (I know no Dutch)? I was curious as to whether the type codes were more readily pronounced in the context of other languages.

    Give it another 20 years and it will no longer be an error. Such is the beauty of language conventions. But, I concede your point.

    I know very little Dutch myself but imagine that, if native words like 'Nijntje' can be pronounced, at least 'INTJ' should be possible, too. The P-types should prove phonetical nonsense in Dutch as well, but there might be languages in which they are not too far apart from ordinary phonetical structures. I doubt, however, that anyone really pronounces type abbreviations as words. I do say 'Ni' in my head, though, rather than 'N-i' (which makes the Knights who say Ni even better).

    There is truth in this. Even I on occasion will use a preposition to end a sentence with. I still resist splitting infinitives, though.
