People love videos and hate podcasts! Why don’t you wear a Myers-Briggs, a Myers-Briggs-Parrot or at least a Parrot mask, or ski goggles as in Japanese porn? If you insist on podcasts you could record Psychological Types for LibriVox or YouTube if there are no copyright problems.

Low key ASMR here

Gotta love how this guy based his entire identity on Buzzfeed xD

One thing that slightly irritated me is how Ne and Ti was pronounced as "En-i and Ti-ai".

Obama is an ENFP. He definitely has Fi.

The Enneagram is baseless.

But I definitely love polls.

im confused about what's happening in your avatar, parrot. for the life of me I just can't make it out... a bird head on a skateboard?? is it meant to be abstract? i just don''t know.
It's a scooter. The handle sticks out, and the parrot has one of it's legs on the board, the other one on the floor. See it?

Thanks for the positive feedback. I have no real schedule for when I will do them. They'll happen, like, whenever I do them, because I'm ENTP. I plan to start getting more specific as I go.
@Endologic does you saying

mean I gave you a head boner?

Not sexually, but it was oddly pleasing to listen to.

Also, Obama is an ENFP.

I think that you could/should have been harder on tests. You gave a few reasons against tests (it is subjective, it is dichotomy based, some people are not very competent self-analyzers, people are too inconsistent, ...), but I was waiting for you to say "f*ck tests".
We adequate MBTI theorists know how easy it is to type someone - or at least solve three-fourths of one's type based on one (dom) function that really stands out. It takes scarcely any input for us to link one's behavior to the appropriate functions. This, not tests, is the only way to accurately type a person. And thus MBTI rookies who cannot be bothered going through the theoretic part must not rely on deceiving shortcuts in the form of questions about themselves.
The likes of 16personalities - unfortunately the organisation that comes closest to this 'central institution' that you dream of - are the cause of all this chaos and confusion in the realm of typology. For example: it has created a default in which people are equally likely to doubt whether they are T/F or J/P. That is nonesensical. The dichotomies are not lineair; they do not all have the same weight. It only makes some kind of sense for a person to doubt between the following dichotomies: E/I (since it changes zero functions, and also because something mighty close to true ambiversion seems to be a real thing), and T/F (for the ESP/ENP/ISJ/INJ types) or S/N (for the ESJ/ENJ/ISP/INP types).

I agree with you a lot when you said that MBTI is more or less a leisurely thing. In the sense that taking those certified classes does not make your regular HR employee an expert at all. It takes much deeper, almost obsessive (wittingly or not) reflection, speculation, conceptualization, experimentation and practical verification. And that is the work of a lifetime. Whereas the newly informed HR guy is probably rehearsing the eight cognitive functions on his way back to the office.

I like your podcasts, keep em up.

I have been told I need to start getting more specific. I think I'll try a new one tomorrow.
