    Default Happy to contribute to the lack of diversity...

    Yet another INFP here on Typology Central. I think that is part of the attraction though, a place where weird intuitives aren't perceived as weird. The unfettered strangeness is fun. I've been lurking here for about a month since the end of the semester and I kind of like you guys

    Ironically, I'm also trying to free my head from MBTI. Constantly attributing myself and other's behavior to cognitive functions and eventually type labeling them...it's so annoying, I want my head back. I must say that it has been a really great tool for understanding my interactions with others. I never figured out the whole "am I INTP or INFP?" thing. I'm currently settling with INFP.

    All that aside. Hello!

    Ha.. The N's are a bunch of weirdos period. The internet doesn't hide that fact.

    It might help to know that the 'cognitive functions' model implies a bimodal distribution, like this kind of:


    But in actuality, people are distributed in more of a bell curve across the dichotomies, like this:


    So using the MBTI to show that people have 'cognitive functions' and prefer one or the other in order to have some kind of 'type'... it's basically falsified. The variation within a 'type' is much greater than the variation between types, most people are 'on the edge', etc. etc.
    The beauty of a living thing is not the atoms that go into it, but the way those atoms are put together. ~ rCoxI ~ INfj ~ 5w6 so/sp
