How does knowing someone’s type benefit you? Do you think it is important to know someone’s type, and if so, why?
It’s interesting, and if I ever actually get the system down it provides a useful language for interpreting and predicting behavior patterns. Don’t think it’s important to know, just supplementary.
Do you treat people differently according to their type? How does knowing someone’s type impact the way you treat them or think about them?
No, but I see it happen on here all the time. I kinda like it tho, seeing certain types thrown out as shorthand insults. I tend find those little reminders that people are petty and awful pretty humorous.
Have you ever mistyped someone, found out their true type, and then started to think about them differently or treat them differently?
Not really? All that changes is the language I use to explain them, which deepens my understanding of the nuances of the system. It’s the same with astrology. It’s all subjective bullshit anyway.
Do you believe MBTI is objectively accurate? Why or why not?
Additionally, what form of typology (Enneagram, MBTI, NERIS, etc) do you believe is the most accurate? Why?
Nope, think it’s a subjective beast often wearing a cloak of objectivity. I’ve been learning OPS (https://www.objectivepersonality.com) based on MBTI and it’s pretty interesting. Don’t know enough about other typology systems to have an opinion on accuracy.
Do you think MBTI helps with relationship compatibility?
I think it can.
Do you prefer MBTI methods to be more nuanced or more broad?
I prefer maximum specificity possible, so nuance is necessary.
Do you prefer MBTI to be concrete or fluid?
Concrete (and nuanced enough to allow for it to be concrete).
Do you think types can change? if so, how often and why?
No, I think you are what you are. But I enjoy Blake’s idea that evolved types start to look like other types. Still picking that one apart.
Do you like being your type, and if you are mistyped, will you be okay?
I’m not totally sure my type is accurate (for specific reasons I won’t get into here), but it’s an ok fit as far as I currently understand MBTI and there’s plenty I like about the label I have. If I am mistyped I’ll be fine and not that surprised though some alternate typings would definitely surprise me.
Is there a type you don’t want to be? Why?
Dear God, please don’t let me be a sensor, my perceived intellectual superiority is all I have. Just kidding, sensors forever!
Does MBTI define you or the other way around?
Do you think MBTI has changed your perspective on yourself and others? If so, how?
Yeah, it’s broadened it and given me more options for communicating what I perceive.
Did MBTI change your life? If so, do you think it made your life better or worse?
My life is pretty much the same it just gave me a new way of wasting time. I almost entirely traded watching TV for hanging around this forum and I guess I would deem that an upgrade.
What is individuation to you?
Moving from the south node to the north node. Too lazy to delve into this one any further.
