ENFP seems to be the hardest self-type to make. It also goes along well with your fear of judging others implied in the critique of stereotyping.
    I have no fear of judging others, I do it all the time as all people do.

    .......Yeah I can see we arent on the same page, I was not trained to use 'PC' lingo. What generational gap do you see?

    All I see is me using language to precisely put across what I want to convey. I see no difference in the language I use to yours. It almost sounds as if you wish to justify ignoring variables and cognitive bias's by claiming that anyone who tries to put forth an opinion against generalising or stereotyping is part of an indoctrinated political correctness mindset. Although it could just be that you are tired of the 'calling out' of stereotyping that goes on so often, which I can understand. Not all generalising is bad, afterall, the human mind needs catagorisation in order to make the world easier to understand. But it is important to recognise what it is that you are generalising, if anything it's more about precision than being polite or nice. Some things generalised are of no consequence....some are.


    Shall I simplify what I said before? Lots of people go along with being politically correct, they argue and fight with passion for any little thing which they see as 'injustice' or what they have been taught is injustice, but going back with what I said above, there is a time and a place. I see and hear casual prejudice all the time in my own town....do I get on a high horse about it? Do I go around trying to force people to my mindset? No I dont. In fact I dont even dislike those people, why should I? Just because they project a bit of prejudice? Is it about someone being black or indian or chinese etc..? Or women or men? Or being gay or bisexual? But the thing is they are not bad people and I recognise that most of them wouldn't act on their opinions anyhow.

    I dont have to like those opinions, but it isn't my job to go around telling others how to think, like an opinion police force. I did sound like that to you because I didn't choose my words correctly, I normally would have advised not told.

    My aversion to generalising is my own, no one elses, my parents did not bring me up to recnognise it, the kids I grew up with definitely did not share my same mindset and teachers and other adults were of no consequence.

    This is something I came to from an observation of others, how people will hide behind anything that is an all covering blanket term and simplification of something that is not in the least bit simple. It's the sign of a lazy mind and people who are 'PC' are just as guilty as those who are not.

    I suspect I just see things in an unnecessarily complex way, but then again that in itself is subjective, you might see it as such but I might not and another person might perceive things differently again.

    Ah well sorry for what probably looked like an outburst. I should have simply said: I see introversion as more complex than that because different introverted types can display extroversion and be quite outgoing depending upon what functions they possess.

    I did that...he was once ENFJ and once he was an INFJ...then i aksed him what is his personal opinion which type is he....and he said - i think i am an ENFJ but im trying to be an introvert aka INFJ...but i think im an extrovert and ENFJ

    It might not be literal training. PC lingo is embedded in our language even though it hasn't done a thing to cure racism or stereotyping. It's like the DARE program, which is attractive only to the kids who would never use drugs anyway.

    It's more of a cultural indoctrination, but it's stronger in college. In my mind I am constantly recalling a friend of mine after he graduated from grad school. He kept correcting every god damn thing I was saying... But it wasn't factual-based correcting, it was values-based correcting. Things he, as an INFP, felt strongly about, to use your own terms. But when values are confused with facts, it's called DOGMA.

    A PC person is one type of Nazi, a racist is another type of Nazi. The PC crowd uses certain non-violent social tactics employed by Nazis and communists. Professionals of various kinds not only have to do the jobs they trained for, they also have to act as narcs sniffing out signs of evil in the world around them. Not that they seem to mind. But it's just not the kind of world I was raised in. Those who were born into that kind of world are just used to the way things are. At least racism was out in the open, now it has been driven underground where is continues to thrive, and always will. And it has transferred to the non-white communities where, by some twist of logic, it's not considered racism because only white people can be racists.

    There is a cure for this situation in the not-so-distant future. By the year 2030 the Earth will have reached its limit of sustainability. So by that time, childish social causes will be the least of our worries.

    Think of it in terms of subjective subtleties rather than inconsistencies. I see most things on a relative level. Everyone is judging everyone else, it's automatic, how a person walks, their language body and verbal, what they say, how they say it, even the abstraction of their ideas is being evaluated by others.....etc..etc...

    Only the most naive of people will deny judgement in themselves towards others. I shouldn't have used the words stereotype or generalise in this thread, I merely want people to be more complex in their outlook of things and stop buying into a cognitive bias of convenience because it takes too much effort for them to try and look at all the variables or implications.

    Judging others is not a negative unless you run with it in a negative way, then it becomes judgemental. I recognise myself being a part of this even as I talk about it.

    Actually what I said doesn't have to be literal, I was referencing influences from a person's environment. But I agree about the DARE program, that's actually a perfect comparison.

    Quite true. However I was never refuting this. Cultural indoctrination was actually what I was talking about as well. Is it impossible for me to have developed an individual view of my own? Does everything I do have to be a product of a cultural indoctrination?

    Environment has it's influences of course, but a person can also evaluate those own influences if they are introspective enough to do so.

    Basically what I was alluding to.

    Hah cant deny that. People are repetitive....things go round and round and no one really learns anything.

    The biggest problem with anything idealistic is that it starts at a single point filtered down from many different points...then it snowballs and gains traction, soon others are adhereing to that idealism but the more who do, the less it means as it is diluted beyond all recognition. The original meaning is lost, bowled over by rumour and misguided nonsense. Eventually we end up with some simplistic gibberish that lots of people live their lives by, but it is a ghost...a pale shadow, nothing but a big sheet with which to cover all reason.

    Incidentally on the subject of my type, I dont put it on my profile out of a combination of laziness and the fact that too many people have a limited understanding of this theory and so see a person's types and functions as a reflection of that person individually.

    Id rather have people simply read what im saying rather than read it through a filter of misappropriated jargon that they believe the cognitive functions are.

    Here is what i think about it - when he is home alone i can see low energy - when he is hanging out - i can see high energy! So yeah i do think he is Fe dom with strong Ni as aux.
    And without seeing where he gets his energy - his Fe is pretty much very dominant so it is also noticable there.
    I know i asked the question and now i am acting like im sure, but i work through the problems usually, think about it alone myself and so i get my responses in my head. i got the the feeling he is an extrovert

    Also about the whole introversion and extroversion thig. I don't think we are duscussing here smth really - cuz just because he said "to shun social interactions" - i don't think it's very impossible for I person to do so. I think you both think the same and are sharing an information which is well known. Personally both parts here are right. To shun social interaction is really a consequence of low energy.
    I also personally think that one person knows is he or she an I or E...and when smth is wrong with their type i think one person know he or she is mistyped. I don't personally think Is don't wanna hang out, i just think that they come in a position when they really need time alone, and god , they can't help themselves. And yes it requires an energy and i know myself i sometimes just can't be present in the conversation cuz i don't have that kind of an energy myself. I feel beaten up to be honest.

    Also AffirmitiveAnxiety is Fi aux or dom but ESFP also has aux. Fi. If we are gonna discuss her type then we shoudl discuss is she an Se or Ne, Si or Ni.
    Fi is certain really and therefore Te.
    Thrills happen for awesome reasons, shit happens for shitty reason. So don't pay attention on stuff which happen for shitty reasons, but on ones which happen for awesome reasons. I'm an awesome reason.

    For the person who repped me, I've already been taken to task over the word "shun." It was an exaggeration. Many introverts desire social contact at intervals, others may shun it entirely. And others may take an attitude of quiet indifference to it.

    The whole I/E question can be a difficult call to make because introverts can employ a kind of 'practiced' extraversion when the situation requires it.

    lol Yah, I should have just said I saw it as more complex than that and left the words generalise and stereotype in the gutter where they belong. Sorry about that.

    ps: The usage of the term 'personal values' was a bit of a red herring. I just thought it would accompany the apology as a decent reason.
