    From an empirical standpoint, sure. It's just as much bullshit as labeling some movies comedy and others drama. There's no empirical test to prove that a movie is a comedy, but there are generally understood criteria that allow us to make inductive arguments for it.

    Come on man, you've tried this one a million times.

    So let me get this straight--we're both abrasive online, but you have integrity (and I don't) because you're equally abrasive in real life and I'm not?

    That's it?

    What do you use MBTI for as a person?

    You seem to know your share, and this for a reason I guess.

    I am just curious

    Just a made up way of categorizing people's behaviors and motivations.

    For instance we could make up a similar system where all people who prefer crunchy peanut butter are called "CRN" types, and all who prefer smooth peanut butter are called "CRM" types.

    That'd be equivalent to what MBTI does. There's no test that will scientifically determine where you fit; only you can really know what your preference is.

    It's just like with movie genres. We arbitrarily decide that movies with x, y, and z characteristics are called "comedy." Is there any scientific test to determine which movies are comedies? No, not really, but it's helpful to some people to divide movies into categories as one of way of looking at them.

    At the risk of being smacked, I'd like to put in here that this sounds like the Fi need for authenticity.

    This sounds pretty crazy. What do the people you know think about your way of categorizing their behaviours and motivations?

    Do they know?

    If they don't, how does it feel?

    EDIT; Not to mention the comparing of categorizing movie genres to categorizing people..

    Some of them think it's interesting and enjoy participating. Others don't really see much use in it.

    Of course, even if I happen to think you're best described by, say, the ISFP type, that's only my opinion and there's no way of proving it. Someone else might think you're better described as an ENFJ, and neither of us is factually right or wrong.

    It works in the same way that I might think this album is hard rock, but you might think it's metal. They're just made up labels and people can and do disagree on who should be categorized where.

    It still sounds funny that you are comparing the categorizing of people to categorizing of music- and movie genres

    Why? Both forms of categorization are just made up and defined arbitrarily. Neither can be definitively tested, and the only real value in either is philosophical. It's just one way of looking at things that some people find useful in helping to understand others a little better, not some magical end-all be-all answer to human interaction.
