What do you think is the best way for people to support each other as they work out questions like type?
    Well honestly I think I have been too sensitive on the topic at times. I know that in my personal thread, I was sensitive due to processing possibly being "different" from who my late husband had known me as.

    I have SO appreciated suggestions. Sometimes I get reps or PM's saying things like "You do everything here for attention because you are Fe". Statements like that aren't as appreciated because they assume something about me instead of granting me the dignity of asking if that is my motive. But, if someone says "I perceive you as this because A or B & C"? LOVE it. I know so much less than many members here and can only benefit from their perspectives. Also, questioning ourselves and testing the strength of our beliefs can be so helpful regardless of the eventual outcome.

    Thank you for asking me about that. I enjoyed thinking on it and also appreciate your graciousness and human interest

    I'm just going to "love" this post, and echo what Clouds is saying. In my experience, I was getting much the same from people when I first posted my Type Me thread and was first exposed to the ESFJ opinions of me. It was brutal and left me feeling like I knew nothing of typology nor myself. The fact is, unlike some members that come on seeking to discover themselves, I come on here solely for the interest of personality type and getting to meet like-minded individuals, but on the whole, I'd say I've done plenty of introspection and know myself much more than people may give me credit for. Having said that, I wholly believe that everyone is continuously growing and evolving as they mature so even though I do already know much about my insecurities, goals, even how to best work with my crazy brain at times (it's a science lol) I know without doubt, I still come to some new conclusions while on this forum and that's what has me coming back for more.

    Thankfully, the dialogue that has been occurring up above of my potential typing has been very communicative and open, and I have felt no pressure to change to this type or that, and I think THAT is what is most beneficial for people on this site. Giving people the options, a menu of sorts, and then letting THEM make the final decision. There will always be people attracted to certain types because of biases, and I don't think that will ever improve, but people make their decisions on whatever reasons they have, and it really is a personal experience on the whole. As a community, I'd say it's best to keep things open and objective of the various types and functions, but must limit how much we push a particular typing on someone. We don't know their story nor their reasons for joining. For all we know, they could be in a very vulnerable emotional state, and all the "type bullying" will only be a further detriment to their being.

    It always surprises me when I hear how many people have their type questioned. I think part of it is that each person does interpret typology differently because their internal archetypes of each personality is often based on experience, rather than theory alone. "You can't be an ENFP because my ENFP friend is very different from you". There is a second reason I suspect people's type gets questioned. Internet culture is very contrarian, so if you ask about your type and present your opinion, someone HAS to disagree.

    I almost never question other people's types. I assume they have orders of magnitude more information than I have. The only time I start to question others' type is when I see them really going at it with someone else. My inclination is to think that the majority of online criticisms, at least more than 50%, are self-projections. You can learn the most about people online by how they berate others.

    I appreciate when mine gets questioned, really; I just realize that I have to put questions in context. If someone uses flimsy reasoning like "well my one ENFP friend likes to dip his fries in ketchup and you don't, so you can't be an ENFP" then I know to brush it off.

    I sometimes have suspicions about others', though I almost never tell them unless it's in the context of a "type me" thing. I also know that my perspective is limited.

    For the sake of not being so much an Internet contrarian -- I should say that it's annoying if/when someone pesters you about you being "typed wrong." "User.. has.. wrong type listed.. *twitch* must be fixed.."

    I have really done both....

    I have a rather strict policy for myself regarding harmful gossip (the harmless kind I may avoid only out of disinterest), because I am very sensitive to people being ostracized or turned into black sheep. (Not to say I never get pulled into it...)

    I can see those dynamics swirling about, but unlike some people, I feel powerless to affect it besides digging my heels in or rather openly and bluntly calling it out (in which case I anticipate denial from others and having myself appear paranoid, aka, "overly sensitive").

    So I may find myself defending someone I see as possibly being slandered, or making people aware that they may be damaging someone else by painting a very unfair portrait of them (because I often think gossipers are not aware when they do this). In some cases it appears nothing short of bullying to me.

    BUT, because I hold a LOT in due to striving for a consistency (to not be a hypocrite), I can reach a point where I really BLOW up about someone I have had conflict with. Usually this venting is done with only the closest of my confidantes (or even anonymously online as I did once in my epic, private blog post here). I will paint the person I have had problems with as absolutely EVIL. They have become an arch nemesis in my mind.

    Any attempt to help me see their good will anger me, often because I had spent MONTHS or YEARS doing that in my mind. I had forgiven and given the benefit of the doubt, accommodated them, etc, and now I am DONE. Most of the time what triggers this is a feeling that the person has not returned my generosity. They have been malicious or incredibly inconsiderate towards me (and/or others) because they did not bother to see me as a whole person. When I vent, I am almost looking for permission to stop excusing them, permission to judge them as a person (ie write them off), so I can be freed of any consideration towards them. It is really just cleansing my system of them. Even if I deal with them later, I don't feel so emotionally engaged by them anymore (I cease to CARE).

    I generally am not seeking to influence others in their judgement of someone else though. I too easily see how that gets out of hand and it disturbs me. As noted, I dislike witch-hunts and ostracizing people and anything where the hysteria of a group corners someone or even ruins their life. I try not to get paranoid about what others could say about me either, because then this social game of people attacking others to preemptively "defend" themselves begins, and I just loathe that stuff (IME, it is so often e6 types who start this stuff ). I prefer to be naive, if that is the only alternative.

    I'm just reading along and am under the assumption someone else has already commented in this regard but if the above statement is what the individual actually intended to say then not only do they not understand you...they don't understand typology.

    Do you think we are at the point where some rules governing this kind of thing need to be implemented?

    Like with this situation...the first time I gave my opinion to E_D was in his type me thread because I was under the impression that was what he wanted. I did not provide an explanation even when it was requested of me privately...I just reaffirmed that yes, that was my opinion of his type.

    Since that time my difference in opinion has been mentioned in a bizarre way in the random thoughts thread...and I have been ridiculed and attacked (called an empty vessel) for not having provided an explanation. So when I saw that same ridicule in this thread along with Chanaynay's post I thought I would go ahead and start to provide an explanation.

    So now I'm going to be really bent out of shape if "empty vessel" gets turned into "I'm forcing type onto people" haha.

    I could give a shit how individual people type themselves and have only put forth my opinion when it seems the individual is searching <-and have received primarily positive feedback when I have done so...even when the individual doesn't share my opinion. I don't think I will anymore though.
