    Default T vs. F

    Just wondering why on earth I come across all these F types that want to be T types and all these T types that want to be F types.

    It's like yin and yang. F and T balance each other out and are both freaking awesome!!!


    Have some F pride dammit!
    Have some T pride dammit!

    I'm definitely a T, but percentages on questionnaires usually show something like T-55/F-45, T-60/F-40, T-53/F-47.... having stated that, I have no desire to be an F at all... I'm one of those who highly values the "wooden heart"...

    Good!

    Same here. I love being F. I highly value making decisions with my heart. But I'm glad there are T types in the world.

    That's because percentages of test questions indicate nothing more than percentages of test questions. It's not like, say in a 10 question test, each question represents 1/10 of your personality.

    No duh. I was making the point that as far as we try to quantify personality functions my T/F axis is pretty close. I'm fully aware that there's no way to encapsulate the human animal in a questionnaire, even if it's a million questions long, in which case most people would never bother filling it out anyway. All of us are working with rough guesstimations or gut feels when it comes to typing ourselves.

    I'm going to say this is true.
    It''s kind of like how so many brunettes dye themselves blonde, and so many blondes dye themselves brunette.
