    She was really cool. I still remember when she made this thread. She was one of those forum members who exuded intelligence and wisdom from every post. It sucked to see her go.

    I kind of regret not reaching out to get her contact information or anything before she left -- but that was before I'd worked up the courage to even post a photo of myself on the forum, let alone contact/meet forum members outside of the forum context.

    I think you mean "shame". "Shameful" is necroing a 2 yr old thread.

    Having said that:

    those who have chosen to use pscyhological type as a weapon to bash "types" of people who have hurt them in the past (and they're quick to label whole types as being a problem, never just individuals), or people who would rather complain about their relationships or communication problems than actually take steps to make things better.
    Never a truer word was spoken.

    Well uh... there's always going to be people doing shit that annoys you. And pretty much all the time I see people saying things that aren't really logical, for whatever motives. So... sure... people use MBTI to overgeneralize... I don't see how this is a greater issue than all the other stuff people say that are illogical or annoying. It appears to me this sarah got annoyed with something and blew it out of proportion. If I wanted to, I'm sure I could come up with a list of annoying things that people say, and rage quit over it.

    ^ Is there a way to use typology that doesn't ultimately result in 'overgeneralization'?


    No. There is not.

    Yes, there is - given you have the time to conduct about 550,000 hours of research.

    yeah, @sarah was lovely to have around. I think she would like the forum more these days. Maybe she'll return sometime.

Anyone who feels like talking with me about type is welcome to send me a PM (I'll get email notification of it) and I will gladly respond, as I've enjoyed meeting a number of people here.

    (I will not, however, be responding to anyone who just wants to start a fight or diss me for being politically correct.)
    The problem with this forum is that everyone wants to argue all the time there have been threads I've made where the sole purpose of them was share my personal experience and they turned into some stupid philosophical argument or debate. This forum was alot better a few years ago now it's kinda gone downhill, too much complaining, stereotyping etc. I don't see a point in why you should leave though the best thing is to just not go into threads you know that are uninformative there are still some interesting discussions to be apart of. People here need to realize that typology is about personality THAT'S IT it's about accepting that every type has both strengths and weaknesses to them that no type is better than one another.

    She left 3 years ago, before you joined.

    I'd also disagree that there is more stereotyping than there used to be. It used to be very negative about S and F functions around here - now it's a little more balanced and negative about everyone.
