I'm an ENFP and I like to raise hell for the hell of hell-raising. I'm totally not nice.
Yeah! That's perfectly what I'm trying to get a cross. You're using your ENFP personality traits to manifest these actions against authority and order, but you're performing uncharacteristically of an NF by doing so.
Thank you, I like to raise hell, too.
Is it that by its indefiniteness it shadows forth the heartless voids and immensities of the universe, and thus stabs us from behind with the thought of annihilation, when beholding the white depths of the milky way?
Why does everyone stereotype NFs as being peaceful, nature loving, happy, cuddly little souls?
Stop stereotyping NFs, everybody! It's about individual and less about 'oh, he's this type so he must be like this, or he must have a job in this'. No, that's all wrong and you're assuming so much it just makes you look arrogant.
But please, can we try not to stereotype other types often as we do, and relax and realize it's more about the individual and that we're all insane?
Ironic, much? Seriously? You log onto a board that is designed to talk about differences in types and then complain about stereotypes? When the whole thing is designed to help figure out differences among the types?
I think it's a little silly that you're so offended by this. People only stereotype like that as a joke. The whole system is a bit of a joke, honestly... no one really expects it to apply perfectly to individuals. We're usually discussing archetypes, not people. The whole point of type is to choose which caricature you're more comfortable being associated with, not to accurately convey individual traits. That comes through in other ways.
For instance, if someone says, "INFJs are martyrs," that doesn't automatically translate to "Athenian200 is a martyr," in my mind. You can say something about an archetype without discussing individuals that happen to identify themselves with a particular type.
It shouldn't be necessary to qualify every quip about NTs lacking emotional awareness with a disclaimer that some NTs have a capacity for sensitivity and compassion, in other words. But with all these people getting mad about every little stereotype and taking it personally, I guess I'll have to put disclaimers on EVERYTHING. *sigh*
Quoted because obviously in the NFs blind passion they must have missed it.
You guys clearly need to develop thicker skin if harmless teasing is getting your knickers in a twist. I mean, welcome to the internet?
