I recently discovered that I'm an ESFP and overall I'm exited to finally know my type. However, (re)reading a lot of MBTI related stuff and encountering the biases and sterotypes about ESFPs and sensors (obviously I noticed that these things exist before I got typed but it didn't affect me personally previously) in some places kind of made me feel iffy bc:
1. there are many sterotypes i just can't relate to. Like, I know that often sterotypes are brought up jokingly and i do find jokes about sterotypes funny at times but at the same time it's like "Ha, ha, ha... I can't relate...:("
2. some people actually believe these things (you know, SOME intuits are only into MBTI to boost their egos and feel superior to ppl)
How do you experience this? How do you react and what do you do to ignore it? Also how do I convince my MBTI-interested friends (and other poeple with biases i may encounter) that I can be an ESFP and smart?
