    I've known an xSFP who thought biology was awesome and loved comic books. And I know INTP's that are really into social justice, but they have a very INTP way of doing it. They'll seek out all kind of information on political theory, or if they're lazy, just speculate about it.
    Yeah I've noticed sometimes I feel like I agree with and respect many INTx who are also interested in political justice, but that they get bogged down in philosophical points (in my point of view) that gets in the way of what is affecting real people, right now, and what is practical. I do also have a sense of the "long term" though, and looking at human social trends throughout history, making me think that I'm using tertiary Ni rather than inferior Ni while pursuing this particular interest.

    Yeah, like you said, not what you're doing but how you do it. Or even just what you think is more important to think about.

    I remember when I was younger thinking this INTJ or INTP guy gave very nice solid rational well-researched reasons for things I already felt. I actually think in terms of Socionics this is what the Ni/Te type or Te/Ni type is supposed to bring to the Se/Fi and Fi/Se types to balance them...like they literally bring the missing piece that gets ignored, but it's a piece that still works and supports, not something that utterly conflicts or has nothing to do with.

    I like PerC, but I've never felt really able to settle there. The pace seems faster here, and yes, probably more Ne-friendly. I mostly lurk PerC.

    It has nothing to do with this thread but of the two most competitive people I have ever known, one is an ISTJ and the other is an INTJ.

    i am surprised typoC has more active members... for some reason this community still feels smaller - in a good way - familiar faces and stuff. could just be my own subjective experience.

    the only thing i prefer in PerC over here is the theoretical sections of MBTI & functions. it's not particularly better, its just a lot more active - probably because its a lot more visible - while here its so tucked in between it's two sub-forums that it ends up serving as a better thread-graveyard then the graveyard. also their formal debate styled forum thing going on might be interesting, though i haven't looked into it.

    So the NTJ's clash less than us NTP's? I suppose that's like the SFJ's vs SFP's for us.

    I wonder what kind of topics drive discussion and produce form participation? Politics seem to attract a lot of people, but we're not in an election season, so for most people, that takes kind of back seat (and if I'm being honest, that includes myself.) Personally what I would like to see is more active content in the Outer Rim section, because I really want to know the different perspectives the types bring to various topics. I want Ne food for my understanding of typology!
    [Trump's] rhetoric is not an abuse of power. In the same way that it's also not against the law to do a backflip off of the roof of your house onto your concrete driveway. It's just mind-numbingly stupid and, to say the least, counterproductive. - Bush did 9-11


    This is not going to go the way you think....

    What's an active member again?

    I don't really consider myself as "active" member here, in essence, although I still guess I make some posts.

    good question, i figured it was "higher post frequency then X" or "posted within X amount of time from now" or something of the sort.

    but nonetheless:

    how do you define an active member, and come to think of it, where do those statistics come from?

    I don't know how those numbers were derived but I think an inactive member is someone who is no longer making any posts (maybe, no posts in at least a month or something). An active member still makes posts. I think Jennifer is an active member because she still makes posts.

    @Mane: I just googled it, since it looks like a vbulletin setting he's just quoting. According to the vbulletin forum,

    It uses a setting in Forum Home Page Options > Active Members Time Cut-Off to determine who is active. Any member who doesn't visit your site within that specified number of days is considered inactive. I believe the default is 30 days but you can change it to whatever you prefer.
    So I guess it's based on visits within a certain amount of days, not actually posting.

    We would need to know the Admin values for TypC and PersC to compare accurately.
