    Default What's the point of being here if I can't find out my type?

    I don't know if this is the correct area of the forum to post this, sorry if it isn't.

    But basically, I can't decide on a type, and in general I'm hopelessly indecisive so I'm not sure if I will choose one any time in the near future.

    So what good is it being in a forum where a large theme is the discussion of your type? I mean it is Typology central...

    I feel like I'm just wasting my time here if I don't know what I am. Is that the case?

    We are all mistyped. The forum still works. Just pick something and play along.

    what good is it to worry so much about which types you are? MBTI is just one model out of dozens. It's a model created by two women who had no fucking idea what was going on, except they once read a book by Jung and decided they could make some $$$ and get laid by ripping off Jung's interpretation of humorism. You'd be better off by just using this: http://www.helloquizzy.com/tests/tim...rpersonal-grid

    editt: Not the "test", just the fuking interpersonal grid. test looks lame.

    Don't ask what your typology can do for you, but what you can do for your Typology. seriously, rather than seeking an image of your supposed identity in what was written about typology, try to emobody your abstract understanding of any function and see how far you can get with that or what side effects/imbalances may come up. any understaning is good enough for an experiment, as long as it can be braught to life at all, which implies that there is some intrinsic reality to it. doing so contributes to your individuation and selfawareness and it can contribute to collective understanding of typology (if you report about your sucess and failure). typology is all about manifesting a potential. types are as much created, as they are observed, except creation isn't as effortles as observation and observation doesn't do the job of creation. you can only understand typology to the degree you can be it. other forms of understanding are delusional.

    as for the forum.. its good for wasting time, no?

    That didn't take long.

    Do you understand your proclivity for hopeless indecisiveness? No? Well, there are many people on here that know more than us and if you read and participate there is much to learn. Typology is just a theme that brought us to the door. It is certainly not what keeps many of us here. If you are interested in the workings and hypotheses behind interpersonal and internal interactions as they pertain to personality than stick around and learn. I am sure most of us could find something more productive to do with their time, however, we are enjoying the process of peeling back the layers.

    I stay here for the interesting discussions. As you can see from my type field all I know is that I'm a Pe dom. I don't really care abut finding my type right now. It is possible to discuss type without needing to know your own. Not to mention all the non-type discussions here.

    There are a lot of people here that don't know their type. Don't worry about it...

    Despite how my post sounded, I'm not thinking of leaving. It just seemed absurd to me that I was hanging out on a forum all about typology when I didn't know my type, and I wanted other people's opinion on the matter.
