Correction: Intuitive bias
posted by strawberry crisis on September 11, 2018, 7:43 pm

If you’ve been around the MBTI community here for any length of time, you’ll quickly realize that there are a disproportionate amount of Intuitives (N) to Sensors (S). According to sillymbti‘s rough sample of MBTI fanatics on Tumblr display an astounding number of Intuitives. And you don’t need to see that data to feel the imbalance; take a quick look at the popularity of a post about a given type, or the number of blogs dedicated to a given type, and you’ll find that the most population is heavily skewed to Ns.

Why this discrepancy? There are a few possible explanations.

There are more Intuitives on the internet. I’ve heard this one fairly often, and, though I won’t rule it out, I haven’t been able to come up with a plausible reason that this would be true. Is the internet somehow inherently theoretical? Is it because Sensors would rather be doing something with their hands? I’m ...

The Functions, in essence

For a long time, I sought to fix the very-obviously-incorrect function stack model that everyone used. As an ENFP, I realized that I found it difficult to relate to Fi as I began to trace most of my behaviors and characteristics back to Fe instead. As I began noticing discrepancies between stacks and the people who were meant to fit them, my solution was to change the stack so that it allowed for more room with the other functions; then it eventually became all eight of the functions ordered in a way that made enough sense to correspond to certain types; then it became a more holisitc view of how strongly each function can be identified in any person; then I realized these functions weren't defined any certain way to begin with and that the "essence" of the definitions of these functions I sought didn't exist; then I let go of The Functions.

But this was all a misunderstanding. All I had to do was look more carefully, and I encourage everyone else to do so as well, because the fact remains: t...

The personality contradiction
posted by strawberry crisis on 2018-08-05 12:43:05pm

Myers-Briggs types create an illusion that they describe and encompass personality in a manner that would be "compatible" with people like they are, so long as we describe "compatibility" as being true to how people would describe one another and act like day-to-day; subjectively, typology systems should aim to describe facets of character that are fluid in people--facets that would be consistent, definition-worthy, and ultimately describable--and many incorrectly assume (usually implicitly!) that the four factors Myers-Briggs "dichotomizes" can be separated into "sixteen different personalities" with "equal weight" in that each factor holds the same weight in determining not only a personality type for someone but also in describing the personality behind said given personality type, which if I would so daringly suggest be a virtue for typology as a whole.

By assuming "equal weight" and constraining ourselves to a strictly logical analysis of the system, we in turn should also be able to claim...
