NFs are certainly interested in MBTI, but largely in so far as it supports their own and others' journey towards authenticity and self-knowledge. They are less interested in it as a 'system'. So discussions about MBTI as a system will be attractive to NTs, NTJs naturally have a stronger pull towards structured systems, and Is, as a previous constributor pointed out, are likely to be drawn to forums as a method of communication and exploration. ENFPs like me are more often found discussing MBTI with others or working hands on with individuals and groups.
    Excellent first post! Welcome! Why don't you make an intro thread?

    Not all INTJs are evil (or sarcastic). Some of us use our powers for good...we're just so abstract sometimes that our good intentions are not always presented in a manner which is well received.

    And there you have it.
    I concur.

    And as such they enjoy clustering where they can form a tag team for this very purpose. Think of like world domination by INTJs but on a smaller scale.. a chat board in fact.

    No.

    Do not generalize.

    This instruction is a difficult one to follow for me.
    I know how much it is disliked on this board, but I do so love to generalize.
    My Ni loves it.

    Anyway, being expected not to generalize is almost like asking me not to breathe.

    I thought it was INTPs that toy with people?
    That's been MY experience anyway.

    Toying around with people takes too much energy and focus for your average intp. Missing social cues is something we tend to do though.

    Respiration is a systematic process that requires diverse oxygenation techniques. To provide this, sometimes we need to resort to different aerobic strategies - even those that aren't necessarily comfortable to us.

    If we don't, we deplete our brain of oxygen. Cells shrink.

    We lose our intelligence.

    Your undertone is cute.

    I don't think we've been properly introduced.

    I think that INTxs tend to enjoy the company of other minds over the internet. We are able to get ideas and learn new things while maintaining our privacy and keeping the ability to leave into our own minds if we get upset.
