    If somebody is worried about being pigeon-holed then why are they on forum that's supposed to be about Typology?
    Hmm I stopped putting INFP for 2 reasons, and neither had anything to do with courage.
    1-because people except me to behave a certain way, Like I couldn't possibly be informed about certain topics, or that I ought to be hugging everything that moves and have empathy for everyone at all times.
    2-Because I am not sure of my type. Has anyone on here actually been tested professionally?

    Yes, this is what I meant by not having courage.

    You are correct. MBTI in practice is a form of cowardice.

    So do you a) not know what type your are or b) not want to be pigeon-holed?

    C) guard yourself against the mentally retarded that take it too seriously when interacting with you.

    I'd prefer that the forum be about harmless non-sense than dangerous non-sense such as folk typology. If the only kind of typological discussion that we could have is going to be about folk typology, we should appreciate that the forum is not about typology.

    But does it necessarily mean they do not have courage? This reminds me of the famous "mistaking kindness for weakness" saying. Although i have no problem with displaying my own type, people doing it to avoid confrontation and argument, or render it to open discussion, may not solely be deemed as cowardly.
