    Default Development stages of a forum user

    1- The Noob

    Typically a self-typed intuitive, this person will make the most blatant generalizations based on a single person he has met. "ESFPs make bad doctors because they have shaky hands."

    2 - The Enthusiast

    Thinks everything can be explained with Typology. Had a conflict with your parents? Must be a Fi/Fe clash. Someone is misbehaving or acting stupid? Attribute that to his inferior function.

    3 - The Renegade

    Disillusioned with Typology, summarily regards everything people say as typism, believing he is now an enlightened person and everyone else is blind to reality. Has "that's not type related" saved on his control+c, in order to save time. People wonder why he still visits the forum. The reason is simple: he has found a way to feel superior, which is a precious resource for someone who is constantly failing offline.

    4 - The Realist

    Stops looking for axiomatic truths in typology and starts considering other variables in order to get a full picture. Realizes that typology is a tool that sometimes work, sometimes not. When people say something good or bad about a type, this person realizes that the statement is subjective, yet likely valid in some way, and gives it proper consideration - always aware that there's an implicit ime/imo that goes unmentioned.

    So do you consider yourself a realist?

    I'm suspect.

    You forgot the 5th stage:

    "The crazy person"

    This person no longer understands anything about typology because they've been around for far too long and their increased knowledge has revealed to them that they actually know nothing. This shatters anything they once understood to pieces and in place, they formed their own system to prevent an implosive psychosis, to which they spread their system in a convincing and cultlike fashion.

    You are still stage 2. I think I went through a stage 3, but it never made me feel superior.

    Doubtful, after 5 years. For me, MBTI has always been a fun way to tinker with concepts I've been wanting to name my whole life, but like any system has flaws, bugs and limitations. Using the general lay-out to organise my own research into though...very useful. Meanwhile the stereotypes are just too much fun not to poke at

    Like the fact that it is almost completely based upon the ability to connect intuitive assumptions?

    I mean, how am I supposed to use this? It's useful to create jargon for a persons psyche, but it's only useful insofar as what the jargon describes IS actually what it claims to be.

    If it has a use, at the least it can help induce a sense of self-control and recognition of destructive patterns.
