Continuing this discussion:
Did you really just say SJs are not unique individuals?Not as unique as other types, by my concept of unique. I don't expect you to agree, and I could be wrong, but my experience has been that they're almost all really normal people in most ways.@greenfairy, When it is said that way, it sounds like if I know one infj then I know you. So why bother talking to you at all when I have that other one.I'm speaking in generalities, not saying all people are a certain way. I'm atypical of INFJ's in some ways, but it's still true that most INFJ's have those traits.Then INFJs aren't unique individuals either. Or, they are, just like SJs, and simply less numerous percentage-wise.Yeah. Also, if the SJ's parents were that way, that would also influence them.Particularly, I was saying that SJ's are less unique than other types. This sounds like a stereotype. Is it true or false? In what way, and for what reasons? I don't think there is any reason to think a priori that it is false, unless we are attaching value to uniqueness, which I'm not. I think the bolded comes closest to the truth if you define normal by being statistically common, believe that people of the same temperament have many of the same qualities, that these translate into other things which define more broad commonalities, and that there are more SJ's in the population. If these things are true then it would follow that SJ's are more normal because they are most like each other and they are most numerous, hence contributing greatly to what is normal in the first place.Yes fully agree about parents. I also think Je likes it when things work in a cohesive structure, and SJ types of course have Je.
