    I disappeared for a bit due to bias and the fact that there's a lot more going on in the real world than on a forum like this. But I'm back baby.

    What a welcoming thread. I'm so glad I clicked on this one first! This is one of the most discouraging threads I've ever read. Is the whole board like this? Or is it just this part in particular? If this is the example you mean to set... I think I'll exit stage right and go read a book.

    The worst stereotype I've heard so far is that sensors cannot think deeply and are very shallow thinkers. I once read an article on Celebrity types that said that sensing should've been called intuition because sensors see the concrete patterns and act on impulse and that intuition should be called introspection because intuitives make random assumptions from within their heads and seldom take concrete action unless their assumption tells them to. Idk if I'm wording it exactly the way the admin wrote it, but he is a professional psychologist that does real research instead of sitting around of type forums and typing fictional characters based on equally fictional stereotypes. I even read a guy on reddit saying that Celebrity types has the only valid mbti information on the internet. Irdk whether that's true or not but I think you better check it out CelebrityTypes.com

    The idea that sensors cannot think deeply or are shallow is incredibly stupid. How many INXX men, for instance, are forever alone because they keep on expecting to date 10s when they are 5s?
    [Trump's] rhetoric is not an abuse of power. In the same way that it's also not against the law to do a backflip off of the roof of your house onto your concrete driveway. It's just mind-numbingly stupid and, to say the least, counterproductive. - Bush did 9-11


    This is not going to go the way you think....

    Yeah it does seem pretty dumb. I think generally the most stereotyping happens in the two dichtonomies that determine function(N/S and F/T) Ns are seen as smarter and more creative than S's and feelers are seen as the wimpy crybaby types that can't handle logical decisions. But take this for a fact, I'm Fi and I seldom cry, some people even type me as a thinket because I analyze things and I'm tough. Even though I am a fiesty feeler, every punch I throw or insult I blurt out is towards people that defy my personal values, which makes me Fi. Tobias Eaton was ISFJ, and sure he didn't like the idea of shooting his father or knocking countless men out, but he was still a badass.

    Honestly I think the S stereotyping is getting a lot better the past few years vs what it was on personality forums, well, when I first joined, long long ago. You still see silly statements by newbies, or in type-me threads, but I think type-me threads are always going to be a challenge because there really isn't any objective way to type people that anyone can agree upon (it's not a hard science), so everyone uses different methods and it can easily start falling into super tiny detailed behaviors, vs what it's supposed to be which is more holistic preferences and overarching patterns of thought/cognition. i.e. we all can do the same behaviors and like the same things, but we get there in different ways and for different reasons. Sure there are trends, but there's way more complexity than a lot of people utilize.

    But yeah, the dumb stereotypes I *think* aren't as bad as they used to be.

    Don't stress about the stereotypes. It's hard to understand someone else's perspective and experiences without getting to know them. Bitching and whining about it likely won't fix it. Being who you are, posting, sharing your thoughts and experiences is the only way to show people what you're all about and reshape their understanding.

    Lot's of people perpetuate the 'SJ's are humorless prudes with sticks up their asses' thing. Most of the people on the forum who have gotten to know me seem to find me funny and lighthearted for the most part. And I don't think many of them would contest that I am an ISTJ.

    If someone's spouting some sort of stereotype that you feel is unfair, just give them your input/experience/perspective and do your best to reshape their understanding little by little.

    S/N bias is bullshit.
    You are as intelligent
    As you make yourself.
    It's all about how well
    You use your mind.

    I'm glad this was bumped because it led me to read it again and remember just how brilliant my responses were. Thanks.

    Yes at externally pushed opinionated stupidity. I wish people knew the difference between opinion and truth and desired outcome.
