    Man, I used to be a realllllly clingy Something in my Teen Years. I was able to cut it down but People were still able to use me. But with all this MBTI Thing going on, I "now know" it is okay for me being "arrogant, egoistic and an Ass". Horray for INTJs and MBTI, really.

    ESTP? o.O

    Yes, to the extent to which it helps lead me to the main reference Psychological types and further Jung books. I used to suffer from hypersomnia 2008-2010, 2011. I was introduced to MBTI in 2014, I read the gifts differing, and further the Psychological Types. I did extensive research of myself with the goal to figure out my type through memory. The Hypersomnia can relapse if i repeat what I did when that happened. So, I have been trying to avoid doing that again, of course with the knowledge of the type, mainly Jungian.
    Not only me, My sister also (ISTP) suffer from a psychological condition that she once had to be brought to psychiatry and eat some medication that make her sleep virtually all days. I wish I could grow her interest in theoretical psychology. But she seems to have other interest. May be I can use the knowledge of psychological type further for her.

    Same here. It has helped me understand everyone, which isn't necessarily a good thing always because now I suppress my anger because I understand why some people behave the way they do, instead of criticizing them and letting some steam off.

    Its helped me understand myself more, that is for sure. As well as why others are the way they are.

    Delightful. It has provided me with the oil I did not know I need, to the gears I did not know existed. No longer are other people aliens! (or at least, not as much as they were)

    I have actually have had visible (not just to myself, but also others) improvement in my capability of interacting and communicating with different kinds of people. MBTI has taught me that there are many roads to a goal, and sometimes you just need to give people the right grease to get them rolling. To me, in learning MBTI, I have provided myself with a cheat blueprint to a person's probable values and interests, which is based off an understanding how each dichotomy works (not that E-TJ = dominant boss or I-FP = unique hippie child BS, but the underlying reasons). These are the beginnings, and once you have a better grasp of the finer details of their workings, you can apply them into the broader strokes within their personality (including if they indeed are a dominant boss or hippie child). I am also better able to discern if the way someone is presenting themselves is an idealized figure or their true self, and ply that out if needed. It is easier to discern and differentiate if you know what to look for, and what you are looking at.

    For a E5 who always wanted to try apply a more systematic structure in order to be able to understand and interact with people, this angle of view looks great for me, and most importantly of all, it works.

    I try to figure out how to interact effectively with a certain types using the MBTI type knowledge. Like how to interact effectively with ESFJ.

    For me at least ... i think i understand people alot better right now (of course reality is alot more complex than the theory ).
    I started reading sicology and mbti when i was 27 years old ,so it was a revelation the first time.

    A little. I tend to have a hard time expressing my thoughts or even explaining how I get them. It sometimes seems like sub-conscious and waking brain are entirely foriegn and do not speak the same language.
    Turns out; they actually don't. It's the Te/ Ni dichotomy.

    I still have a difficult time getting the two on the same page but at least those who know me-an the MBTI -understand a little better that yes, the thoughts are there and they make sense I just have a hard time expressing them outwardly.

    Oh yes! It’s explained everything. It’s helped me understand the tax code and quantum physics, and it’s taught me how to make a better soufflé, and also stopped the hair from thinning on the top of my head!

    Seriously? Nah, not really. Though I have met a few cool people because of it.
