    There's a difference between asking a person why they think they ARE their type and accusing them of not knowing their ass from a hole in the ground... and some people tend to do the later in this thread as opposed to the former

    Simply asking doesn't allow you to gauge their certainty, though, so you still won't know how they'll respond to your opinion without offering it.

    there's a difference between telling someone that they are wrong that some have (and then arguing for page after page after page with the person in question about why they aren't their type) and merely asking

    This is not one of those issues that really benefits from lengthy analysis, because ths issue is quite simply this. In making alternative suggestions for someone's type you are either going to come across as:

    1) Being helpful by sharing your own experiences and knowledge in order to help them understand themselves better.

    or

    2) Engaging in psychological one-upmanship by implying that you know them better than they know themselves.

    It's possible that position 1 may be misinterpreted as position 2, but that can usually be cleared up if the debate continues and the person making the type suggestion treats the debate and the person they are discussing it with in a respectful way. If they do not do so, it is reasonable to infer from their very lack of respect that they are indeed coming from position 2.

    Continually doing something to someone else that is against their wishes is, at best, rude. This is just how things work. If there is a "why," I am not capable of articulating it.

    In theory, yes.

    However, my experience is that most people treat everything as type 2 and any further analysis only cements that assumption.

    ok... I don't see how that is different from what you said before

    ok, but there is a difference between 'I don't want to talk about this anymore, so please stop asking' and pages and pages of 'I TOTALLY DON'T UNDERSTAND WHY ANYONE WOULD EVER QUESTION ANYONE'S TYPE AND PEOPLE WHO DO THAT OR WOULD WANT TO DO THAT ARE IDIOTS AND I HATE THEM'

    So, and think carefully about this; whose problem would that end up being? The analyst's, or the analysand's?
