    Please choose all that apply, and feel free to elaborate in the thread.

    Some of the options may overlap with each other, but still seemed worth having as separate poll choices.

    For the heck of it. First three options

    Other (please specify): Using it as a convenient shortcut to convey the gist of me to someone else. Saves a lots of words. And saving words is good.

    A different perspective from which to view and analyze human behaviors and interaction.

    I probably hang around here because there aren't a ton of people around me IRL who like to have deeper discussions with.

    Voted for the top two.

    Voted for the second and third options.

    I think I originally got into typology to understand myself, but now I just enjoy the theory.

    Personally I feel that above all it should be used for the personal growth, and to reverse the preconceived ideas that filter reality to our eyes.
    Because, as I five I can relate too much to the intellectual stimulation (2nd option), and I'd feel what I am misunderstanding everything if I take it as a game, because literally this can change my life for the better, and that is TNT that would be lost if I only threw myself to do what I have always done haha. I'd only go back into the shell :/

    Started out as just being interested in taking psych tests online and reading about things like the Big 5 or even the greek temperaments. Became very interested in mbti and the enneagram eventually. Started out as something to examine myself but I love categorizing other people into these systems too. It's interesting to see how people tick

    I've used MBTI specifically quite a lot for professional development. Typology and MBTI hasn't been of much use to me on a personal level though.
