    Default TIL that I'm not an ISTP. Please stop calling me an ISTP now. Thanks

    I would greatly appreciate if all of you would refrain from referring to me as an ISTP. I am not an ISTP. If there are any questions or comments for me on this subject, I will be pleased to answer them here.

    It probably doesn't matter to you. It doesn't even matter very much to me. It's simply a minor nuisance to place a label on yourself out of convenience only to have everyone dismiss you when you decide to finally leave the box. In fact, most people seem to think I'm an ISTP, that I'm claiming INTJ as "performance art" or as an act of low-level trolling. It's clear that I have not been forthcoming enough about myself for others to make an informed judgement about my type. Although I keep most of my self hidden from others, I do not blame myself for other people's assumptions. Taking as a whole a single slice of one's personality is a failure on the observer's part. Pigeonholing is a way of life for many of these typology cultists, so it doesn't come as a surprise. It's unfortunate though, that every typology forum is saturated with self-proclaimed experts who have transformed simple, loose, generalized models into stereotypical cages from which it's captives cannot escape. Don't you dare change your preferences or allow any change whatsoever. You will be whipped, beaten and fried in a vat of boiling tar and then rolled in chicken feathers and strung up on a dead tree in the middle of the desert, literally.

    You can call me whatever you want, only because of your name.

    Yep, sounds like an INTJ to me.

    No, seriously... You guys have some scary rants and threats.

    Hmmm sounds like you prefer Fi over Te. Sure not INFP?
