    Being a "P"type more socially acceptable for a man or a woman?

    I've been thinking about this for awhile... and I believe being a P type is slightly more socially acceptable for a man than it is for a woman... Why? I think society frowns upon women who are slightly "messy", "late", "forgetful", "spontaneous"... I think socially it's much more acceptable for a man to be those things. I had a very long relationship with a J type male and in the end.. it was my P-ness that he says killed the relationship. I think had I been a man... and he had been the woman... I would have just been seen as a "typical man" and the relationship might not have ended...


    Has anyone else felt judged for being a "P" type and felt added judgment based on your gender? I'm just curious..

    I would agree that "P" (let's not start the tired old "jokes" about P-ness, please, you're not three any more) is more acceptable for men than women, as men (the richer and whiter the better) get a lot more social freedom than women, although it is also more socially acceptable for women to act masculine than it is for men to act feminine - and society decides what is masculine and what is feminine.

    My bad

    Anyway, yeah I think that being an xxxP may be a bit more socially acceptable for males than it is for females. But I've really never had much of a problem with that at all. Plus, I don't really care about those standards anyway...
    I've never really felt judged for it. If I have some traits that may have to do with my dominant Ne that people happen to dislike, I don't relate it to being a female xxxP or even to being an xxxP by itself.

    I think had I been a man... and he had been the woman... I would have just been seen as a "typical man" and the relationship might not have ended...
    I dunno. There are many factors that can kill a relationship. Beyond anything, you just have to find the right partner.

    Women with more Pness are looked at as cute.

    J men are looked at as business men.

    Pness men are looked at as lazy men.

    J women are looked at as nagging bitches ().

    That's the impression the world gives me. Socially acceptable? It's socially acceptable (and expectable) to be extroverted for each sex, basically. I don't think people care if you're a woman and you're forgetful and late. Unless they're you're boss, but he won't treat you any different than he would a man unless he's sexist, which is an entirely different topic jano?

    I don't think there's anything masculine or feminine about Pness or Jness when it comes to societal standards, basically.

    I think what is really bugging me is that as a female INXP I feel some times additionally "judged" if you will.. because I'm female. I just wonder some times why the double standard? If someone happens to come into my house and it's messy.. it feels like some how I'm a "bad woman" (from their reaction) because my kitchen is untidy... *gasps* because women aren't supposed to "be like that." Someone said that to me once..
    From time to time that mentality rubs me the wrong way. Yes.. I'm fully aware that I should be better about keeping my house tidier.. but why should it be worse from a societal standpoint just because I'm female? Sorry.. the entire reason for the thread was cuz I was at the time very ticked off by an incident I had that made the double standard (my point of view) that it's "ok" for men to messy, late, disorganized... bah.. bah.. bah... very obvious.

    I do agree with skycloud86 that it's much easier for women to act and be accepted as masculine females than it is for a man to act feminine.. and be accepted. I would happen to fall into the more masculine female category.. I can imagine for more men who are more feminine life can't be all that easy.. so I feel for them. Personally.. I think people should just be able to be who they are.. and let things go at that.. Society often has a different point of view I think.. I at times think I'm a little square peg being shoved into the round hole...

    Just disregard peoples' opinions. Make yourself impervious. That solves all problems

    By the way, a P can be organized and a J can be messy.

    Let's look at this objectively.

    infp = feminine
    isfp = feminine
    istp = masculine
    intp = maculine/feminine

    entp = masculine
    enfp = feminine
    estp = masculine
    esfp = feminine

    Reordering them into useful groups:

    infp = feminine
    isfp = feminine
    enfp = feminine
    esfp = feminine

    istp = masculine
    intp = maculine
    entp = masculine
    estp = masculine


    inconclusive.

    So you're saying all feelers are feminine and all thinkers are masculine.

    It's not that simple.

    Do you have any logical basis for these functions being "feminine" or "masculine"? Or is it just by today's culturally accepted notions of femininity and masculinity?
