    Why would you care about what people expect from you?
    You don't dare to behave differently from their expectations, and you don't even realize it.

    I voted that I am here for other reasons than typology... If it was only about typology, I wouldn't have sticked around. It gives an interesting frame for the discussions, so it is better than just some general forum.

    Why that almost sounds like self development

    Wait, this is a typology forum?

    I do post much less topics about typology. In fact, I can't remember when I made my last topic. I feel content with the knowledge of typology I have gathered and should probably just move on and leave this forum. Apart from responding to other peoples topics, I have not much to the pool of threads myself.

    But I got stuck here do to the forum having nice members to kill time with.

    1.) The fact that you voluntarily choose to be part of a collective online communtiy in order to articulate these thoughts rather than sitting at home thinking them to yourself, is in itself a refutation of your ultra-individualist philosophy.

    In a deeper sense,the clothes you are wearing were collectiely made, so was the food you eat, so was the technology you are using right now, so were all the theories you espouse. You are the result of social processes, as well as having an individual consciousness.

    There are over 6 billion people in the world. The ones most obsessed with how "unique" and "impossible to categorize" they are, are often the least interesting, and certainly not "unique".

    You really should get your anti-collectivist philosophy "seen to".

    2.) A more simple point, but related to the last: nobody forces you to be part of an online community devoted to MBTI - a very marginal interest in society - so why are you so adamant that such a forum should not introduce rules relating to its fundamental purpose? (it's not as if MBTI type is irrelevant to a typology forum).

    To be honest, I don't get people who don't identify with a type yet yearn so eagerly to fit into one, well, I guess I get it, but I find it completely pathetic. :sad:
    See, and while I think it's great that some people really DO identify 100% with a particular type, I think they are more in the minority anyway. I will once again turn on my pre-recorded message that I've written many times (lol), but I view the 16 types as 16 'trends' or general ways of being/approaches to life. They are categories/TYPES, after all. To think everyone on this planet is going to relate 100% to one and only one seems a bit presumptuous; what about those who are somewhat between one or two? Those who aren't as extreme in one of their preferences as another person of the same type is? It seems perfectly reasonable to me that someone will identify with bits and pieces of several - hence, their ambiguity with their own type and perhaps as a result their extension of their ambiguity to the usefulness of the system in its entirety.

    This isn't to say that that person doesn't 'fit best' in one of the 16, because he/she probably does, but it's easy to get caught up in the detailed profile descriptions and other conflicting info on the net, and lose touch of the larger 'concept', if you will, of what the type embodies.

    Please no. It is clear to me you have gathered a lot of knowledge by your posts. We need the wise, and as well as the inquisitive. Responding to other people's topics is essential here. I would be missing another complex point of view, not previously thought of, were you to leave. I'm not sure how serious you were, but nonetheless, I find myself somewhat alarmed. You bring a lot to this table. That is not an opinion, merely a fact.
    What is normal to one, is incomprehensible to another.

    ALL anger in this world stems from a lack of control.

    Why would you care about what people expect from you?
    You don't dare to behave differently from their expectations, and you don't even realize it.
    Why is it always the INTJs??

    I am just saying everything to do with people expands beyond it's purpose eventually. Or it contracts to such a level that it becomes so specialized it's almost useless.

    Guess what is more likely to happen to an online forum with a limited subject?

    I don't care what people expect from me unless they matter.
    The thing is .. I don't come on here to be misinformed or judged by people who can't see beyond their own puny constructs. The people who matter to me know my type or don't care.
    What most people do when they are bothered by a pest is exterminate the pest , or remove what attracts the pest. I simply choose to be preventive rather than reactionary in this instance.
