    Yeah, I'd say it's a lot more of a 4 thing than a 6 thing...

    Hey! Didn't you used to be a 6, Viridian?

    Everybody's different from each other, yet they are also similar to each other. I feel a bit different from people I grew up with, but there's still an underlying similarity that we have (shared experiences). But I don't let the fact I felt different from my peers stop me from living. There's people out there that share the same interests as me too... so it doesn't make me any more unique or special than anybody else. If anything, if one explores deeply enough, they can find people that share like traits to them... sometimes you have to think outside the box to find it. Why dwell on feeling like an outcast when you can embrace your traits and do something productive with them... make a difference in others' lives.

    Yes, this. I flat out told that one forum that they were practicing typism. One minute, a person is talking about how misunderstood his/her's INFJ "status" is, and then the next, ranting and raving about how ESTJs ain't shit.

    Yes, from what I've seen it seems to be poor INFJs against the world and ESPECIALLY those horrible ESTJs.

    I've had very similar a feeling about some corresponding pages regarding INTJs. Far too often, I find them full of "we are the ones to conquer the world, others are nothing" or similar rant.

    I also don't like this idea of announcing ones type on Facebook. On one hand, I consider such information quite private, and on the other hand, I know that most people have no idea of typology and that many of those who do utilize stereotypes to such an extent that I don't want them to know which box to put me in.

    Or they all but paint them as Machiavellian, amoral power-seekers.

    Yeah, I agree with you there... Then again, I don't post squat on FB, despite checking it every day.

    I've not seen any facebook pages, I joined the INFJ forum for a while and it was fine, actually I liked it, although people wherent exaggerated about their type there or stereotypical they did seem to care about things and had a total search on about a lot of things. I liked that side of things. Really trying to philosophise, research and introspect. Lots of long posts with great links to more material.

    I meant counterphobic...it was late at night when I typed that

    A big distinction between 4s & counterphobic 6s (which sometimes get confused) is that 6s are more likely to define themselves in relation to the group, even if that is "outside" the group. 4s tend to seek unique identities that are not in relation to any defined group. It's more of an inner ideal they create. It's a subtle distinction, but in this case, I think a 6 fits better because the focus is so heavily on a group which is seen as threatening or oppressive. The 4 doesn't find these things threatening or oppressive because they don't have a need to for a group security. If a 4 were to have this attitude, then yeah, it might be the so-dom. However, I still think the 4 would not be threatened or feel oppressed even if they define themselves as an outsider to a group.

    Yeah I visited the INFJ forum, and I sincerely doubt I'll go back.

    @SilkRoad

    Yes, generally speaking. If you have too many people who perceive themselves as a certain type, there is a high chance that that group will begin to group-think (for better or worse.)

    The prime example are the single-type forums, INFPgc was like that, INTJf was like that, and I am quite sure INTPc is like that.
