    Default Is the INFJ type disputed?

    I heard that the INFJ type is disputed. Is that true? Does anyone know much about this?

    On a sort of unrelated note, someone made a joke one time that ENTPs or some type like that, they typically believe MBTI is a bunch of bunk. Has anyone else heard anything about that?

    IT depends on the person. SJs would see it as essentially useless (Unless they found it interesting), SPs would be the same way, NFs (especially NFPs) would be like 'I'm a person! Dont box me in!' and NTs might see it interesting as a theoretical system, but not much more than that. I think NFJs might be the most interested in it just to have the added structure to how they view people.

    I just think MBTI is useful for figuring out differences in people. Knowing where difficulties might/will occur is a good step in resolving them cleanly.

    And what do you mean by disputed? That they aren't 'actually' INFJs? I don't have much of a clue about this besides that I could be seen as different types depending on what people saw of me.

    every entp I have told about mbti dismisses it and says you cannot group people into types.

    I send them a few links and leave them alone.

    In three to five days they roam back around and start asking more questions, still of course insisting that they dont fit into pre-established patterns.

    Almost the whole of Europe thinks MBTI is a bunch of bunk and my INFJ thinks so too.

    I think what you read is that entps like to create their own system. Which is true given the fact that you have the ability to see connections where there are none. Socionics was created by an entp I think.

    :confused: What's the question? I don't understand it the way it is phrased.

    I felt that way for many years, mainly because I felt no type described me. I learned more about MBTI and have changed my mind now
    I'm one of those who looks at the functions combined with profiles. If I just went by profiles, then I'd still think it was stupid. Profiles are stereotypes of how the functions tend to work together, IMO. So in that sense, types are stereotypes and functions individual preferences.

    Yup, all the INFJs posting on here are actually figments of your imagination.
