  1. "Typism"?

    Myers Briggs Forum
    Apparently "typism" is something you can get infracted for here on PerC. I wanted to know if other people seriously consider "typism" a real thing and if people get legitimately upset over jokes aimed at their type. Do fellow T types get easily upset over jokes aimed at their type? Or am I...
  2. If We Let Typism Continue in the NT-Spere

    NT's Temperament Forum- The Intellects
    The Story of Johnny Johnson Scene: The United States of Intelligent Thinkers. Doctor's Office. November, 2043. [Enter Doctor, Mrs. Johnson, and Young Johnny] Doctor: I'm sorry to inform you, Mrs. Johnson, but your son... he's a heavy sensor. Mrs. Johnson: WHY GOD? HOW COULD HE DO THIS TO ME...
  3. [INTP] INTPs are writers, ENTPs are speakers (blatant typism thread)

    INTP Forum - The Thinkers
  4. Cross-Cultural Variations better than the MBTI and an end to TYPISM.

    Myers Briggs Forum
    Assumptions at the bottom of this thread. As the title implies, I am a firm contestant of the MBTI or any other type of personality theory when it used to explain the larger scope and orientation of a group or society as a whole. Firstly, it may be fun to denote a contemporary or hypothetical...
  5. ENOUGH with the typist foolishness.

    Myers Briggs Forum
    Honestly, everyone on this forum should stop with the typism-provoking questions, threads, and comments. When taken further than lighthearted joking, it becomes a nuisance. I.e. "Why are all XXXX's like this?" "Which type is the dumbest/most annoying/most likely to _____?", "I hate XXXX's"...
  6. [ISTJ] Do you resent the title "Duty Fulfiller" or other stereotypes?

    ISTJ Forum - The Duty Fulfillers
    Hello ISTJ's! Some types get "cool" titles like "Visionary" (ENTP) or "Inspirer" (ENFP). ISTJ's are often called "Duty Fulfillers", which, if we're being honest, is just a little bit less sexy. Do you resent that title? Do you think you have a better one that fits who you are and who your...
  7. INFP and Assuming an Inferior Role

    This is the real reason why I felt compelled to write all of this. It is the spark, I guess. In this video, the idea is presented that the main reason why INFPs feel the need to be someone else is because they represent the feminine. I agree with this to a point. It sparked quite a few...
  8. [INTP] Typism - Where Is The Line?

    INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    PerC and YouTube People often have particular views on where the line with typism falls. For some, any mention of atypical behaviors that may be associated with particular personalities cross this line. For others, there is less concern with potentially being associated with behaviors they...
  9. Say nasty things to every type(or just concentrate your hate on a few types)

    Myers Briggs Forum
    DISCLAIMER: Take the 'hate' in this thread with a grain of salt. All is meant in good humor With that said, lets begin: "Hate is a dish best served cold" - Mahatma Ghandi Hey. Second time poster, long time lurker. Taptap. Ok, here we go. ENFJ: You need to realize that your opinions =/= facts...
  10. Hints For Balancing For All Types - "Can't we all just get along already?"

    Myers Briggs Forum
    Extraverts (E) General Hints 1. Appreciate yourself as a person of action who can get along with people and get things done. 2. If dealing with Introverts, don't expect them to volunteer information, gently ask them. Don't forget to use questions and allow them time to answer or put off...
  11. Typias - Typocentrism - Typophobia

    Typias - Typocentrism - Typophobia These are just my thoughts in how much the forums can be a mere microcosm of how the real world works. I coin the words in my title as they relate to type, from these existing words: Where the words above show a propensity of ignorance in not knowing other...
