    Interesting. What would you guess is your niece's type?

    Me too :) That's a great way of putting it. Regardless of MBTI's objective merits, it's undeniable that I know myself better now than I used to.

    More self-awareness and more self-acceptance.

    Great thread @Ren ! I'll have to think about a more elaborate response, but I pretty much agree with @Asa

    69 seems like a missed opportunity

    The impact of neurotransmitters on behaviour and how they effectively take the question of value (ethical, aesthetic) out of the equation, since the reasons for e.g. why your niece would be so much into her handbag collection is effectively the outcome of a purely physical process.

    Thanks man! Looking forward to your contribution :blush:

    And yes, I agree with @Asa too. I wanted to react to her post but since I basically agreed (and also I'm hungover) I found little to say in addition :laughing:

    What's up with Charlize Theron?

    You know Afrikaans women are biologically the most faithful women on the planet? (lowest percentage of non-paternity events)

    I very rarely use MBTI to work out how to interact with an individual on something specific. I use it to sniff out the social atmosphere at a broad brush level: EvI, SvN, FvT. I don't do this consciously but the typology feeds my instinctive reactions. I'm hypersensitive to ES social atmospheres for example and will adjust my expectations accordingly - very often beating a hasty retreat either to the periphery of such a group or in a total escape lol. I'm also fairly quick to pick up on IT and IN social settings which is where I feel more comfortable - INTx was the prevailing social culture in my workplace. I don't have such a strong pull to pick up on F in the same way - I think this is because it tends to reduce the 'threat level' of the social atmosphere in any context, unless it becomes intrusively personal, and it's really the 'threat risk' that I'm assessing :D. By threat I mean things like the level of drain on my energy, how uncomfortable I'll feel, how much I won't share the same perspective, how much I will have to dissemble to harmonise, etc.

    I do get interested in working out the type of some individuals in order to understand their behaviour and attitudes better. This isn't usually tied to a particular objective other than my interest - it will colour how I relate to them but I don't consciously use it when I am with them. I'm more likely to do this with someone who appears to be on the periphery in a social setting in some way. I also do it quite frankly out of nosey curiosity sometimes, but that's a bit naughty I fear :smilingimp:

    LOL yes! I actually like the energy in a group like that because it's so alive - but I can't be a part of it for long, I feel like a foreign coin in my change.

    1. I now walk around with a list of my coworkers, friends and families MBTI types in my head
    2. I try to understand someone's primary and secondary function if I have issues communicating with them and then tailor my communication approach
    3. I understand how I work pretty well. I recognize my blind spots and ask for help with them
    4. I try to not talk in MBTI terms outside of the forum. It starts to sound like crazy talk to those uninterested in it.
