    I'm not saying it makes whatever a bad person or that she was being manipulative in the sense of having bad intent, but I'm sure it will make some people a little skittish around her, and it may make people a little less likely to accept what other posters say as truth about themselves.
    I think you're overreacting.

    It's possible, since the response to her "outing" is pretty underwhelming, and I'm kind of stressed anyway right now. It doesn't matter that much to me personally, b/c like I said, I don't really know whatever. But the idea of someone going undercover to prove others' biases just doesn't sit all that well with me.

    I wish more and more that I had just stuck to a just-the-facts approach and moved on. I probably would have after I took the MBTI in high school (and I scored INTJ there, too), but then it sorta sneaked up on me while I was Web surfing, and then I got engaged in the theory...

    I know what you mean, but I don't really think of this as a manipulative social experiment (executed in good faith or bad). I see it more as giving one's self flexibility to "sensor-out" and shake off the austere, NT formal wear -- whatever's explanation notwithstanding. Sorry you're in a bad mood though.

    Why? He doesn't really hide the fact that he's an INTP does he?

    (And he probably won't mind the rest either. At least he didn't mind me posting a picture on INTPc of him in bed with himself, staring admiring at his bedfellow.)

    I'm glad I don't have a membership at INTPc.

    I think it was in Dana's Blog where group dynamics was discussed. I'm getting a first-hand look at that now.

    Ok, maybe not.

    Why doesn't anyone ever question my type? Am I that much of a stereotypical INFJ?
    Don't you remember? When you asked the forum to type you. If you want me too, I'll be glad to question your type again.

    of course you can. otherwise there would be no such thing as a good actor.

    You must be still pissed off about the fact that Dame Edna is a man. seriously though, I don't think there's anything to be annoyed about.
