MBTI type based on writing?

I am curious to know if it is possible to guess at someone's MBTI type based on some of their writing. Is this a good idea?

I do not have the necessary knowledge or background in typology to even know how to start. Yes, I have heard it is dangerous to try to type people. But all this information is in the public domain so I feel no compunction discussing it or re-posting it. Maybe someone who is an expert would give me some clues or enjoy the challenge? Personally I find this person a jerk but maybe I am just a jerk myself? :shrug:

If anyone is interested please help me start! I am interested in typology but it is not my thing really. I signed up in order to make a reply about 9/11 but I don't have the requisite 50 posts. So instead of posting to random threads this is something relevant to personality types, right, and maybe I can learn some use of this theory? I've never gone too deeply into the MBTI system and don't really think about it in daily life.

Like I said I don't want to basically doxx someone, but they posted all this stuff in public FIRST so I am not really singling them out in any way!

Machine learning algorithms using deep neural networks with transformer architecture to perform text classification. Thats what I'm trying over the next 2 months. Will see what happens. A few people have tried to use machine learning approaches to predict mbti. More have used it for big 5.

Sounds interesting. Is that something you're going to try to use for the forum? Work or a personal project?

Not specifically any personality system really - I just don't understand this person's motivation. They claim it's a hobby but then they come on to complain about other people using that other site differently than them. There's some definite anger in there I can't place. Obviously English isn't their first language - but it is odd to make so many spelling errors if they have been a dedicated typist for over ten years. Anyhow, I can be satisfied that they have not come after me with their complaints. ;) Over several years . . .

It's for a class for school. The class is called Natural Language Processing.
