    Default Small rant on the trend of mistyping

    Time for a truth bomb people will either secretly or openly hate me for:

    SJ= 40.5% of the population
    SP= 33% of the population
    NT= 12.5% of the population
    NF= 14% of the population

    So basically we have 73.5% sensors and only 26.5% intuitives. Now we know all about that N bias around MBTI communities, extremely likely coming from mistyped sensors who have deeply seated self-hatred issues and want to feel special (because you know, muh rarity percentages).

    So looking at MBTI communities EVERYWHERE people type as intuitives left and right distorting the real traits of these types because most of them are in fact, mistyped.

    Of course TypoC is no exception, from what I could tell the vast majority of users are typed as some sort of intuitive, and don't get me wrong, I've accounted for the fact that MBTI as a theory might attract more intuitives than sensors, but the numbers still don't realistically add up.

    "Blah blah people mistype themselves, who would've guessed?" - probably someone in the near future after I post this

    Well listen, I don't have an issue with people that genuinely attempt to type themselves properly but they just mess it up, I have an issue with people who lie to themselves, modify their behaviors unnaturally and even chastise others for not accepting this fake image they're trying to create. And of course, they refuse to accept the truth no matter how irritatingly obvious it is.

    MBTI should be used as a tool to help people to understand themselves better, not as some fantasy character creator for people who can't accept themselves.

    Don't even get me started on the people that use circular reasoning and all sorts of delusional arguments to explain why you're wrong and how it makes such perfect sense that they're a special snowflake with whatever magical abilities they seem to believe a certain personality type has.

    So take a step back, get out of your imaginary world and accept reality, you're most likely a mistyped sensor. <- This comment is not directed at anyone in particular, it's directed towards the community at large which needs to take a second look at themselves and accept reality as it is. Learn the functions and their dynamics properly and don't type yourself based on stupid tests or vague, idealized/biased descriptions of types or whatever.

    "Sooo why do you care? I'm not gonna listen to you anyway" - again, probably someone soon after I post this thread

    I know, you do you. But this is a fact which I think most people are actually aware of(and they're either in denial or they don't care much either way) which is not talked about often enough in my opinion, all of these things which are so painfully obvious and yet, people seem to be ignorant of it all, most likely by choice, which is pathetic.

    Sooo yeah, this is mostly a rant, but in the end it's all true(and it doesn't take a genius to figure it out, just look around) I felt like this had to be said, and it probably won't mean much, if anything at all but who knows, maybe someone out there appreciates the truth being spoken out loud and even though rather unlikely, maybe someone is gonna wake up from their fantasy after reading this and who knows, maybe it'll end up helping them somehow.

    I dunno, have fun y'all

    Moving forward, put aside all unnecessary preconceptions, eliminate all biases, analyze all the facts without letting external influences cloud your better judgement and put together a coherent picture of the truth like a jigsaw puzzle, you have the pieces you need, the only thing left to do is to learn how to put them together properly.

    Now that that's out of the way...

    Many people say the same thing for enneagram, that most people are 9s and 6s and that basically no one is a core 4. (I think it gets more complicated with the enneagram partly because some believe in tritypes where that 4 might show up behind a 9 or 6, and some don't, blah, blah, blah.)

    I think some of the things holding people back are stereotypes that aren't accurate (especially with S vs N), and the fact that particularly with enneagram, we might recognize some of the deep pain and vulnerability we experience somewhere in one of the numbers (like... 4 or like... sx ) and so if someone tries to say You're wrong! You're not that type! it's almost akin to them saying that our experience of pain and vulnerability are somehow not valid, or are not valid enough. So with those typings, in particular, it's very difficult not to take them personally.

    You can suck the uniqueness out of categorical systems surrounding personality, but you can't stifle the importance of individual variation (no matter how small the variation) for the people involved.

    I have to urge to write something like "I don't know why people care so much?" but we all know the reason.

    'One of (Lucas) Cranach's masterpieces, discussed by (Joseph) Koerner, is in it's self-referentiality the perfect expression of left-hemisphere emptiness and a precursor of post-modernism. There is no longer anything to point to beyond, nothing Other, so it points pointlessly to itself.' - Iain McGilChrist

    Suppose a tree fell down, Pooh, when we were underneath it?"
    "Suppose it didn't," said Pooh, after careful thought.
    Piglet was comforted by this.
    - A.A. Milne.

    I wonder if this is why so many people remove their type from their profile after they have been here for a long time. It is no longer magical, and the illusion disappears as well as the fun. Or maybe they get tired of being analyzed that way.

    Same.
    I like to rock n' roll all night and *part* of every day. I usually have errands... I can only rock from like 1-3.

    I actually don’t.

    I agree that people are individuals, regardless of MBTI/ Enneagram, and that’s why I don’t get it. Life experience shapes us so much than these labels.
    So you’re a 6 or a 9. You aren’r EVERY six or nine. What’s wring with being happy just being you?

    You're clearly not a 6. Or a 9. Or a 4.

    Are you assuming that the various types are equally likely to frequent online forums, or forums oriented toward personality theories?
