    Default bye bye for now

    I am very happy that I had the opportunity to be part of Typology Central.
    But now, I feel that it is time for me to take a break.
    I am doing it for me.
    Quite honestly, I don't feel very welcome here. I write posts and the majority of them are ignored. I don't really feel the need to put time and effort into writing something that gets no response.
    I was posting here instead of posting on my blog.
    I have to learn to set priorities for myself.
    Also, I have to admit that I find some of the threads and comments to be offensive. One that comes to mind is a thread about ESFPs being "stupid." Another that comes to mind has to do with ISTJs being "boring." These are mean things to say, and, as I don't really want mean to be part of either my "real life" or my "on line" world, I didn't even bother to comment.
    I think that there are some truly very nice people here.

    I just needed to say what I was feeling.
    Feel free to PM me if you'd like to chat with me.
    I'm a little teapot, short and stout. Here is my handle and here is my spout. Every time I steam up, I give a shout. Just tip me over and pour me out.

    I feel for you. I get ignored quite a bit to. I thought it was just me feeling ignored until someone actually commented to me that they dont understand why people ignore me when I have alot of good insight. We tend to go against the grain and sometimes for what we say to be accepted requires others to go against what they know.

    Certainly a better way to say goodbye than the "BAN ME!" thread I read the other day. The guy was a nut.
    I'm betting many other people, not only you, feel the same way as you. It's normal on forums that people feel ignored or unwelcome.
    Anyways, good luck to you and cheers!

    INTPs are socially inept
    INFPs are whiny
    INTJs are cold
    INFJs are difficult
    ENFJs are demanding
    ENFPs are shallow
    ENTJs are bossy
    ....

    We all hear it about every type. Sorry you felt you were ignored.

    If 'boring' is an insulting word to you, than mayhap you're making a good decision for yourself by moving on. Sorry you felt ignored.

    ...sorry to see you go, WT, although it sounds like you have some blog stuff and other priorities that are positive and hopefully that will prove themselves very meaningful to you. Thank you for investing as you have over the last year.

    Since the topic is getting some play in this thread, I will share something that might surprise people since I have such a prominent role on this forumL: I often feel ignored too on forums, even if i discover later that people have a positive attitude towards me. I have left forums before myself where I did not feel I was included, even if people didn't seem to openly dislike me, just because I felt shut out of the conversations and like no one cared.

    When someone responds or reps or PMs me, it is actually a big boost and helps me to know someone heard me.

    Usually though I have to go with my logical understanding of things and the experience I have accumulated in regards to forums: I have come to realize that often people just don't naturally give me feedback, or that they might appreciate something I might have said but just not have a good reason to respond, or maybe they might even feel intimidated by something I wrote and think a response will not measure up, or a host of other reasons... It's hard to tell. I will just say I keep ending up being pleasantly surprised by someone who will suddenly drop a comment or respond to a post and let me know they've really appreciated my thoughts in the past... and I had no idea.

    Forums just are notorious for people dumping their own stuff on a page for others to see, without giving the same sort of cues they might give someone in real life if they were meeting. I think people are more accepting/positive towards each other than what comes across, sometimes.

    “Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    Yeah i got bored and was going to start recycling words. I also don't know as much about some of the types. It was kinda scary how the first four just flew out of my fingertips.

    ENTP = ?
    ESTP = Can get on my nerves sometimes? (my brother ? )
    ESTJ = ?
    ESFP = party animal
    ESFJ = in everyone's business
    ISTP = lost in their own world?
    ISTJ = boring, bossy?
    ISFP = ?
    ISFJ = martyr
