Evening/morning/afternoon, Mr Ishida here (Or Andrew if you like being on a first name basis with people). Don't worry, i'm sure you'll all get used to me...... in a year.....or 2......or 3

Quick story, found out about MBTI from random wikipedia articles (Brilliant start i know -_- ) and i stumbled on this place. While i loved the knowledge this place exhibits, i didnt really like the idea of your personality being shoe-horned into 1 of 16 types, so i simply left the site, deciding i'll come back to it some other time.

A few weeks later and i'm here on what is pretty-much a "braingasm" in terms of what new things i've learnt (Including how MBTI isnt really shoehorning anything, despite my earlier opinion). Took the test and i'm INTP apparently, sounds pretty accurate (As reluctant as i am to label myself). Something tells me I have a lot to learn here, so this is me setting up camp. Sorry folks, you've got another one.

Soooo, yes. Hello :)

Welcome! On the sixeen types, take that as a fuzzy generalization of possible behavioral choices- sort of, in an iffy way. . . -
Humans are much too complex and changable to define in only 16 categories.
But learn what you can, apply what you choose, and be true to yourself. Its a fun place, but i would not want to live here.

That was my biggest gripe with MBTI, but i've since learnt it's just a generalisation on your personality, and there are a LOT of things not covered by that. My head was pretty much screaming "NO NO THATS ALL WRONG!!!! YOU CANT GENERALISE LIKE THAT!" But i've worked around that little barrier with my second visit. Thanks for the response!

There are some who seem to want to think that it is cast in stone, hardwired into the brain -
Sigman Frued was asked late inhis lif about some philosophy, "That is the Freudian view, isn't it?" about some idea. Freud answered, "Perhaps. But I am not a Freudian."

Early in my social worh career - I changed directions from chemist at age 50 - a patient stated that in working in the kitchen was like seeing ghost - and was laughed at. A few years I gad him in my case load and asked about that. He said that the kitchen was next to one of the old prison wards where he was and people were killed by the "ward boss," a patient put in charge of discipline."It gave me bad memories looking att it."
He was being abstract, thoughtful, and the staff was too concrete to understand. Basically, they were more limited than he was - a NGBRI to murder charge..

That sounds like a very interesting person. And sorry if this is a dumb question, but NGBRI?

Not Guilty By Reason Of Insanity
He was in the family trailer and trippin' - he heard a noise and thought it was the town butcher coming to likk him for giving his daughter the clapp, and shot him - it was his dad. Called the sherrif's office, repored that "i done shot my daddy." They said wair. Someone else came in -that ust be the butcher, shot him. Called the sherrif, I don shot my brother too.

He was not schizophrenic as diagnosed. He was impaired buy mushroom tea, weed propably adultrated with PCP. He may be dead - he would be locked up the rest of his life.

In Louisiana, an electeded judge has to sign a release from the forensic mental hospitals - and if they relapse and kill someone the Judge might as well hang it up for he will never again hold elective office.So regardless of functioning the patient stays.
Really rewarding work.
