  1. Real MBTI Type Differences vs Stereotypes

    Myers Briggs Forum
    This was probably asked a lot of times but, the internet is full of MBTI descriptions, some are more accurate than others. According to you, what's the difference between real traits and stereotypes or oversimplifications for each MBTI type? How would you describe each particular type without...
  2. [Enneagram Type 3] I need feedback on how to improve E3 characters!

    Type 3 Forum - The Achiever
    Feedback on how to improve E3 characters? Hey, Enneagram 3's. I'm a novice fiction writer, who's currently taking a fiction writing course that's required for my English major :sad: Anyway, I just received feedback on my first short story that two of my supporting characters (whom I would...
  3. [ESTP] Hobbies vs stereotypes

    ESTP Forum - The Doers
    Are we all athletes that are really into action movies? Post your hobbies below. I'd like to know how much we vary in our types of hobbies. Also, any other female ESTPs like me out there? :tongue:
  4. [INFP] Bad INFP Stereotypes?

    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    Why the INFPs are everywhere described as so socially awkward weirdos? It pisses me off. What pisses me even more are that type of INFPs with some naruto motherfucker as a profile pic that are literally on every youtube video about MBTI usually commenting something about them and how they are...
  5. INFJ's are put on a pedestal

  6. Defying the INFJ stereotype

  7. [INFP] Paradoxical Extravert Shutout (PES)

    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    Hi, I made up this term to describe something that happens to me and that I hate very much. Maybe it happens to you too. So, introverts are seen as "shy", perhaps, because we don't initiate social things as much. And extraverts aren't shy because they are more out there and social. Paradoxical...
  8. An MBTI Stereotypes Test (This Is A Joke)

    Myers Briggs Forum
    Some people took my MBTI and Cognitive Functions Test so seriously that I thought I'd lighten the mood with a silly stereotypes test! You can take it here:
  9. Type your country's mbti

    Myers Briggs Forum
    For the stereotype of person living in this land. For Germany it'd probably be ESTJ or ISTJ, because German people are drawn to rules and we are like an organisator for the world, try to be an idol for other countries but have little authority. I'd laugh about Germany if I wouldn't live here...
  10. [INFP] Breaking INFP Stereotypes

    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    Alright. So I watched this video this morning and I've been stuck on it ever since. Tbh it really brought me down hahah. I'm going to wait for others to reply before I give my opinion on what I think of it, so I'm just gonna leave this here and you guys tell me what ya think. Do you agree with...
  11. False Stereotypes

    Myers Briggs Forum
    Hello everyone! I haven't been on here in a really long time, but I'm always thinking about personality types and how they apply to people. One thing I've noticed is that there are a lot of stereotypes about certain types that simply aren't always true, such as ISTJs being boring and...
  12. [ENTP] How Inferior Si Manifests for Tidy ENTPs

    ENTP Forum- The Visionaries
    I have had an ENTP roommate and currently have an ENTP friend that are both very neat, tidy, organized people. I know you're saying "so what, not every type fits their stereotype!" but this seems deeper than that. I met an ENFP who was like this as well, and it just doesn't make sense for every...
  13. Ditzy and Hyper INTJ--Does it Exist?

    Myers Briggs Forum
    Hello, I am new to this site! This is my first post. It seems to be well-known on the Internet and in these sort of communities that the INTJ stereotype is that they are rational, their intelligence is higher than the average, they enjoy studying, and that they do not express emotions or...
  14. NFs aren't perfect angels

    NF's Temperament Forum- The Dreamers
    I know that people don't often want to dispel positive stereotypes but when those stereotypes imply that other types can't be kind-hearted or as loveable as NFs I think it starts to create a rift between types and animosity in the MBTI community. That's not what MBTI should be about. So...
  15. [ISFJ] You doubt you're an ISFJ when...

    ISFJ Forum - The Nurturers
    Inspired by the ISTJ Forum. And yes, I KNOW that these assumptions are just based on stereotypes, no need to tell me that. Ok, lets start: You doubt you're an ISFJ when... You are (contrary to stereotypes) interested in abstract theories (e.g. physics and philosophy and psychology) You're...
  16. [ESFP] Functions > Stereotypes

    ESFP Forum - The Performers
    One of my major frustrations with MBTI is the types seem to attract people with similar interests rather than people who share the same functions or way of thinking. This isn't helped by the poor personality profiles out there. For ESFP, the functions are Se-Fi-Te-Ni. In my view (yes, grossly...
  17. [INTP] Power & Planning

    INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    I simply want to address two areas where I can't identify with the standard INTP description(s) and see if some of your guys feel the same way. Power: Many type descriptions and people espouse the sentiment that INTPs would make poor leaders due to their indecisiveness and abstract nature. In...
  18. [INFP] Fashion?

    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    Hey fellow Idealists! So, I've read in a number of different articles that INFPs are indifferent on the topic of fashion. While I think this is very true about fashion TRENDS (because I don't think any of us care for following trends) is this a simple stereotype or do you really not like...
  19. [ISTJ] Breaking stereotypes of ISTJ

    ISTJ Forum - The Duty Fulfillers
    Let's break stereotypes! How many ISTJ artists are you? Are you interested in social science? Do you have a good sense of humor? Are you an abstract thinker? Are you secretly romantic? My ISTJ father isn't an artist, but he used to play guitar and he's interested in poetry. He was a journalist...
