How can you possibly say you dont criticize the posters and in the same post hold the thought that the approach could sanction unhealthy behaviours? MBTI is nothing in and of itself. What is a book if it is not opened? You question because you question "humanity", not MBTI. You criticize the posters and this thread, which you are apart of How can you also criticize and then question in the same breadth if it does? Thats like making a judgement based on what you dont know, is that healthy?
The functions are setup around, feelings, thoughts, concrete, concepts. How can you argue that those things dont exist that you dont see it in the world around you? That certain people dont use one over the other? I dont see how they cant exist in its simple form. Now where things can go wrong is when we extrapolate to far. What happens is that things start to overlap because thoughts cause feelings, feelings cause thought, these thoughts are based on either concrete things or concepts. Nothing can exist without the other, yet we seperate it as if it can. We then tend to forget that we seperated it and stick all of what we have in a group. The groups start to overlap and we have to do some house cleaning to seperate again which leads us back to the same thing. And to complicate this even more we all are seperate entities when it comes to knowledge so we all have "different data" so to say that he have already pregrouped, prearranged, pre-messed-up that we bring into the mix when we try to understand.
If someone wants to assume that what they do is natural and ok they would find a click to hang out with that rationalizes, reasons, and comforts the people who are like them...oh wait that already happens without MBTI. So what does MBTI really provide in the form of what is natural is ok compared to what we already have in the world. Is this really any different? Yeah if you focus on the details, but what if you focus on the concept? The concept that we do this exact same thing in real life, but havnt really defined exactly what we are doing, therefor remain blind to it.
ok, im done atleast for now.
