>>23143234 Eh, true. People who are too extroverted make me feel like they don't wanna hang out with me. People who are too feeling are just too damn over reactive. I'm an F but not too far down that path. I like INTJ's a lot 'cause they're very engaging but also very reasonable and grounded.
>>23143199 Meyers-Briggs is BS, never passes randomized control trials, and fails miserably at predicting behavior. It's a load of pseudo-scientific cold reading BS.
Here's some fun M-B facts! -The same person often scores differently depending on their emotional state at the time of evalution -a change in decibel level in a room better predicts behavior than M-B (raise the dB level by 10dB, people are about ~50% less likely to assist others, regardless of M-B) -Even the creators of the system thought placing historical people into these categories was haphazardly bad science
>>23143316 Hm, well thanks for sharing, I wouldn't have known that. You're probably right, it could be one of those "just vague enough" assessments (like zodiac signs) that us neurotic fucks fall in love with. I definitely see some truth to it, but I don't think it's strict at all.
>>23143316 It's not entirely bullshit, it's just not as great as it's made out to be. That decibel test is almost meaningless as a mode of comparison between people. Sure, it may be correct, but it is nonetheless useless unless people come equipped with means of measuring the magnitude of sound Everybody knows that scores are different depending on emotional state. The test measures emotional state. Did you know that thermometers change reading as temperature changes?
Regardless of statistically significant chances of predicting the behaviour of a subject in a random environment, M-B tests are useful in that they allow people to quickly engage in conversation about the aggregate of dozens of questions.
>>23143316 I'm an INFP. I retest every now and then, but it's always INFP. Not saying you're wron, but I do aree with my personal assessment, and those of my close friends, and it's always seemed pretty accurate for me. Even if it isn't necessarily the best though, I find it to be a fun and interesting conversation starter.
>>23144899 I'd say it is a blessing and a curse, it's good to encourage creativity since you experience things intensely but it hurts and is overwhelming. Nice to be understood from time to time though it's not necessary.
>>23145061 I get it, most people find me to be a bit hard to deal with, honestly. Imho it makes me way more dramatic than most guys, which isn't the best socially, but somehow I still enjoy being in touch with the things around me, it seems like no one else really is.
>>23145172 Welp. I'm too intense for most people too anon. Especially in love I'm creepy and want to become one with a partner, write them poetry everyday, serenade them with my flute, make them little gifts, cook for them, clean them, worship them. Lol.
>>23145226 I can understand the idea, I've always been very close to my partners, not overly clingy, but I really prefer to spend all day with them if I can. Also, I'm sure your poetry and flute serenades are sweet :#
>>23143406 Myers-Briggs is about as reliable as astrology, it just has more of a psuedo-scientific sheen to it. Hell, this isn't even something you have to go and study psychology to point out - it's prominent on the wikipedia page for it:
"Psychometric specialist Robert Hogan wrote that "Most personality psychologists regard the MBTI as little more than an elaborate Chinese fortune cookie...""
It's bullshit. I mean, if people want to treat it as a fun little diversion, fine, same with astrology, but don't pretend that it's validity hasn't been ripped to shreds.
>>23144361 That's the nature of the beast; it's the same that if you read aloud an astrological horoscope to a room, everyone in that room will be able to find ways to make it reflective of them.
ESTP here. If you read the description of one I'm very typical right down to the being successful in sales part. I get along with pretty much anybody that isn't a dumbass or argumentative for the sake of being argumentative.
>>23146390 I wouldn't say we're so rare, I have a couple of close friends who are INFP, and honestly, I think there are some nuances that make INFPs not totally compatible with each other. I think it's just that our values are so set in stone, that if we happen to have opposing morals then we sorta see it as a threat. It's a part of being overly altruistic and idealistic. I guess if you have the same values you'd get along, but other than that you're sorta gonna clash.
