    tertiary Fe fail for you there Alexsei... Jag doesn't object to typology in and of itself, he objects to people not figuring out their types for themselves it seems... especially people typing others or wanting to be typed by others. After all, we usually know ourselves better than people over the internet do

    More like nonexistent Fe fail. As for typing ourselves, we do know ourselves better than most other people (not a universal constant, but I agree as a general rule that's the case). But do we know type theory itself better than other people?

    perhaps how it applies to you... of course asking those who know you better for their opinions on a few personality facets is usually more effective than asking EVERYONE

    Yeah, but you actually have to get what types represent straight before you can determine that. If you have a retarded opinion of how types work (which is disturbingly common), you're bound to get your type wrong. Knowing yourself doesn't magically mean you know your type.

    It's worth of note though, that I actually shy away from typing people without being asked to do so -- I much prefer typing famous people and fictional characters. The only times I actually stick my head in and call people idiots like that is when they display behavior so glaringly contradictory to their assumed type that they can't possibly be that type.

    Although overall the whole enterprise of typology is a headdesk-worthy clusterfuck. No one can actually agree on what types are and what they represent. Basically the only reason I keep up with it is Rule Of Fun applies here.

    of course asking those who know you better for their opinions on a few personality facets is usually more effective than asking EVERYONE
    That much I can agree with.

    well... I wouldn't trust thoroughly evaluating someone for typing them unless I can observe them for a few days and such in my own type of setting (i.e. cooking, playing games and things of that sort)... merely reading a list of their qualities on an internet board is a list of how they see themselves, which most people are delusional enough that it's not a proper match up
