    I think NF and NT people have begun developing biases against SJ's and Sp's because of how the NT's and NF's tend to be minorities and therefore misunderstood and marginalized

My mother, brother, and best friend are all ESFJs, and they are all very bright, intelligent people. I also know of an ESFJ who graduated valedictorian in a class of over 400.

    Yes, when they get emotional or stressed, they don't really use logic or reasoning, but that's just because they are emotional. They aren't like that on a regular basis. This whole thing just confuses me.
    on MBTI forums like these, it seems to be the "cool" and "hip" thing to hate on SFJs, particularly (maybe I'm wrong) by many IxTxs. the constant irrational betching and insult throwing is tiring and stupid. for as illogical as we supposedly aren't and you supposedly are, I see quite a reversal of that in reality.

    plus society tends to have a very hypocritical bias: it favors logic but acts completely irrational and emotional about it. "OMG LOGIC IS THE WAY TO GO STFU WITH YOUR STUPID WHINY EMOTIONS, ILLOGICAL PERSON! HAHAHAHA COLD HARD LOGIC FTW PWNNNNN". it seems to me that the most irrational people are the most obsessed with being "logical" and hating on others who aren't terrified as they are about being emotionally open, which is not the same as being emotionally crazy.

    really? I NFs and NTs seem quite common here and usually agreed with on things, hardly misunderstood. But I agree there's definitely a bias,

    What I mean is that while growing up, it always seems like NTs and NFs have trouble fitting in a society dominated by SJs and SPs. People tend to think of us as weird. Our intelligence and our lack of interested in many material things makes us have a harder time feeling human. That's what I was referring to

    NT/NF make up only around 20% of the population. The internet is a safe haven for introverts, and IN in particular.

    Any type can be smart (socially, street, science... etc.) or even intelligent... just like any type can be stupid and not even have any kind of common sense. It's all about the functions. And my dear, ESFJs use Fe as their first function... for many that is a hill one must go over first order to make logical decisions. They have the same functions that an INTP uses, but it's more or less the order. Fe, Si, Ne, and Ti. First it's emotions and relationship decision making (Fe), then (Si) it's recalling already read information and data that's been stored in that people friendly brain.

    Next the ESFJ uses Ne which must be mustered in that haze of emotions (fe) and that erg to make everyone happy, then that data bank of information (Si) you've heard and read from books which will help in conversation. Then they will start using your Ne to try and pick up patterns that they may or may not be able to systemize due to the thick haze of emotions and overflow of proper etiquette according to Family Home Magazine... because categorizing people and things is a no no, it is not love, and is NOT trust.
    The poor Ne will lay in the back of the ESFJ's head giving warning and wanting to help... but poor Ne is treated like a dirty word and the ESFJ treats it like it doesn't exist... poor poor Ne... poor poor lonely and neglected Ne, how it was born with a purpose but god forbid it be treated like it was born of evil.

    The Ti is the last function and can be used... and sometimes pops out when least expected, usually when things get quiet.

    Look ESFJs aren't dumb, leave that to the SFPs...

    MINDFUCK!
    Funny since INTPs and INTJs are the groups who do the most irrational betching about other types too. the ESFJs (I'm not sure about ESFPs, haven't seen many here yet or noticed them) seem pretty practical.

    Not trying to have an SFJ bias, just going by what I've noticed here and on other mbti forums.

    Plus logic-obsessed people love to think they're the only smart ones in the room, and anyone who isnt like them is an overly emotionally-driven fool. but they love getting passionate about stuff like politics or video games.


    kinda skeptical look gif.jpg

    edit: I didn't even realize you the speaker were one of those. I hope that didn't sound snarky and personal.

    'nother edit for anyone to answer: why is every gif and pic I post tiny? and how do I fix it?

    They like to argue about politics and video-games….and everything else. I doubt you'll find an NT that will tell you how much they find playing Call of Duty an emotionally gratifying experience and makes them feel accepted and loved.

    In the end though all the types are needed in society. My analogy is like this. An Idealist king presides. His Rational advisers and generals great strategies to carry out the Idealistic visions in a way that can be effective in both cost and maximized benefit. The Guardians maintain law, order and shared cultural traditions and customs and keep people from being harmfully deviant. They also take care of the how much and how many and how to build and what to build in society which is guided by the vision of the king and the advisers. The Artisans allow us to look at the fun and aesthetic side of life. They add finesse to the work we do and also provide entertainment and enjoyment that can be consumed so as not be overwhelmed with task after task. They show us to sometimes stop building and imagining and just smell the roses for a while

    Society doesn't need NTs or NFs at all. Scientists are Artists are options….just look at the pre-Stone Age societies.
