    -circular discussion, it gets really old.
    -it's almost too general to the point of seeming too aloof and unrealistic.
    -there are a lot of intellectual and close minded people here..sometimes I can't say what I think/feel.
    Is it that by its indefiniteness it shadows forth the heartless voids and immensities of the universe, and thus stabs us from behind with the thought of annihilation, when beholding the white depths of the milky way?

    Of course people will read into things because of your displayed type, that's only natural but by displaying your type you can help prove those assumptions right or wrong. The more varied the members of each type are the deeper and more nuanced our understanding of each type will be.

    Well, of course the flaw in this argument is that we humans in practice have proven to have a remarkable ability to not understand each other. It's why MBTI was invented in the first place - because a lot of people suck at this.

    You don't have to take my word for it ... simply change your type to INFP and see what happens. See if you don't notice a shift in how your opinion is weighted in the whole equation.

    I am surprised that you are surprised people are treated differently around here based on type.

    As I said, I have had my type displayed and not displayed. Probably 50/50. I don't hide it intentionally; but when in prominence, I notice a change. Even when I have listed my type as xNFP I believe there's a difference.

    And to your "+1000" ... disappointing, although truly I do appreciate your perspective and desire to just see my type at a glance. And I know why.

    But I am in no way obligated to display it by participating here - if you want to know my type, after all, I never "conceal" it, it's in my blog for the forum to see.

    Only an ENTP troll with INFP hater tendencies could miss that obvious truth of this place.

    It's also old news. I remember that awkward moment when INFPs from Global Chatter were thanking me for confronting people (particularly BlueWing/Solitary Walker) about dissing INFPs all the time. How long ago was that now?

    INFP is a bit of a slur here. It's maybe the most disliked type that isn't an SJ.
