My inner ISTJ summarily disposed of her reading materials after the whole tampon thing.
Fun fact: My only direct experience with those books was when my friends and I decided to read the most awkward kink scenes aloud to one another in dramatic voices. (We were a bit under the influence at the time!)
(Meaning: I have never read one all the way through. Just snippets, for the lulz.)

I heard NTJ's start up cleaning and cookery classes by age 24.
Classes? Who needs classes when there are books, the internet, and just plain common sense and our taste buds.

Ah, but how do people do these things - that is the real question.

Is one meant to infer some unspecified unit of time here? Or do you mean simply when they start spinning around in circles?

An ounce of common sense would have dictated to never attempt to out-Nimoy an INTJ.
Anyways. In all likelihood, those unsure of their type are probably better off being baffled than handed a title they wouldn't want to let go of. I can't tell if the prejudices that people hold regarding type are propagated by the forums, or are built into the source material itself. They're unfortunate, however, as they get in the way of self-awareness and the growth that can accompany it. Then again, those kinds of platitudes sound a little condescending when you say these things and test as a more desirable type, I suppose. :/
...you sure I can't keep my auto-INTJ stamp? I'll give you 10% of the royalties for putting up with all the new money.
