    I considered being an INFJ once, like you, but then I toke an arrow to the knee.

    I remember convincing myself that I was an INTP because I was into systems. Systems like Typology. My investigation affirmed the biased conclusion it gave me via test results.

    The wishes of an individual, however, prove as unreliable as the tests. It's a double-edged sword that cuts both ways so long as you attempt to manufacture an identity through theory as apposed to accomplishments or actions.

    That said, I don't buy into any particular set of statistical evidence for MBTI, so I can't side with anyone on either side of this argument. The only thing I can infer from this conflict is that TypologyCentral generates a member base that entertains the idea that it holds special knowledge about human beings. This idea oscillates, taking forms of egotism, forms of inquisitiveness, forms of social acceptance, forms of rejection, and so on, but it always gets thrown into the mix of how we define ourselves, regardless of its accuracy.
    yeah, a kind of dictum. "mind or body. choose."

    meanwhile, identity is, as you point out, a recursive process. to not definitively take an object of that process as you, but to allow your experience of the process to deepen your awareness of your own construction, is not easy. the end and the beginning meet back in the middle somewhere. you got to cast the lure but recognize too that it's the reeling in that catches the fish.

It doesn't matter, and this whole bullshit of, type is so important. no it's not, people are going to hate or like you regardless of type. you're still going to die, you still have to obey the laws of gravity, you can't kill someone without breaking the law. You're still you.
    Yup.

    The only problem is that they'll misattribute things they don't like about you to your type, rather than what they should be attributed to. Because people do all they can to make things 'fit' in their minds.

    But hey, I figure that if they're going to make that mistake, that's on them; so I don't give a fuck what other people think my type is. It's not up to me to bust ass to correct people

    also people assign certain types to other people because they think that type is a bad type and they think the person is a bad person.
    In no likes experiment.

    that is all

    i dunno what else to say so

    but you're not a bad person, even though you won't tell me about when you have sex. which is ok, for most that's a private matter. I just want to know
