I have not been a member of this forum very long and spend most of my time reading through the threads and something that has really intrigued me is the strict interpretations of each type.
I have seen people blame an argument on Fe, Ti, etc... which strikes me as being quite odd. The way I see the MBTI (and all personality matrices) is purely a framework for understanding the baser levels of people. For instance, I am an INTP, and my type describes me quite well; however, it does not take into account the occurrences throughout my life that will make me react or think a certain way. Chalking up a conflict as merely two personality types at odds because they don't naturally get along, does a disservice to all parties, in my view.
I look at the MBTI as a framework of my personality upon which my experiences are built and as a tool to help me identify the areas I would like to develop and better understand to become a more well-rounded person. To that effect, I also use it to try and relate to other people whom I do not readily understand. I would never use my type as a scapegoat for a conflict or bad behavior on my part by saying, "sorry I am an @$*#$, it's just my Ti coming out to play." (this is not an actual quote)
I am not trying to make waves in any way, but I am curious to what others' thoughts are on the matter.
(Also, this is a broad observation in all of the forums here, but since I am INTP I am posting it under the NT)
