Of course it does, but obviously the goal of the 16 types was to divide people 16 different ways. I think on the plus side, it shows people that they always have someone to relate to (more so on this site than in real life where types aren't as distinguished as looking below someone's username). On the minus side, it allows for easy profiling where people of one type can point the finger at another for a certain characteristic they may or may not have and say that they dislike the entire type based on that one characteristic or experience.

The only way to transcend this is to not look at the types as a label or predictor in how one will act, but as another dimension of their personality. That, in addition to staying open minded and not shutting anyone down based solely on their type.
