    EVERYBODY is an INFJ!!!

    Sherlock Holmes is an INFJ! Obama is an INFJ! Kylo Ren is an INFJ! Your mother is an INFJ! (You know, because she PLANNED to have children [that's Ni] out of love and compassion [totally Fe!].

    ...or so it seems, sometimes, when browsing through the "Guess the type" subforum.
    Really... I know, it's mostly about fictional characters and there you could have a world full of INFJs.
    But come on! Every third celebrity, too?

    Since most of the forum users are supposedly INFJs it seems logical that you guys tend to see (or wish to see) yourself in chraracters you can identify yourself with. A typical Fe-thing. Even as an INTP I can relate to some extend. But there's a point where it just gets ridiculous. The reasons why characters and persons get typed as "INFJ" are often arguments like: "Well, he does have a plan, doesn't he? That's something Ni-doms do!"
    Yeah, right. Because ISFJs never have plans.
    "She thinks very symbolic! Did you see the way she looked at that butterfly?"
    Did you for once wonder how Si works, besides: "uh, it kinda categorizes things and compares them with the past?" and be done with it?
    And the argument which annoys me the most... "I can totally relate to this person! Therefore he/she must be my type!"
    Wrong! Just wrong. It could be, yes. But this is no valid argument! I can relate to a nagging ISTJ sometimes, who thinks that everything in our modern world is just stupid. Because I understand what he means. I don't even have to share his opinion.

    Now guess which type is famed for understanding people. Right. INFJs. Getting my point? Please, the next time you type somebody or something as INFJ, at least try to come up with good reasons.

    See? I didn't even mention the "only one out of 100 people is an INFJ"-argument!

    People suck at typing man. People in general have trouble understanding others who are unlike themselves. That's why there's always been so much racism, sexism, etc.

    The other thing is the stereotyping. Like ISFJ = motherly and then they attach dots together that their mother is an ISFJ. They have no idea how an ISFJ thinks, they just attach the stereotypes of motherly, normal, traditional, etc to it.

    But instead of caring about how people stereotype others based on personality, I think stereotyping others based on race, sex, mental disability, religion is much more of a problem to be concerned with ATM because people get hurt pretty badly from these "team" games of separation. One thing at a time; people aren't ready for this yet.

    This is so true. I once thought everybody should know about MBTI and Jungs concept of cognitive functions, but I'm not that certain anymore. Some people seem to refuse to understand how it really works, because it is much easier to work with stereotypes. Thus the 16 types become more than just a concept, but a firm principle for some...
    @Jinxy This one even I haven't heard yet :P

    In all the time I've been into typology, INxJs are the ones who abuse typing characters as their type the most. At the same time, newbies also do it.

    I literally wrote books to explain how mental disabilities work and how to treat them (without medication) but burned the books because I realized people aren't ready to know. It sucks how ignorant people are yeah, but it's not like I can do anything about it. People would have great knowledge served to them on a platter and still live in denial as they use the same Old tricks that they even know don't work... but they do it anyway because everybody is doing it. This is true in every form of abstract idea - people will use the majority as guidance instead of rationality. Whether that abstract idea is an emotion, a theory, or even combat strategy (as demonstrated through video games), people will not want to sway from the "meta" AKA the way things are currently. It's a lot like "what is in motion wishes to stay in motion."

    And we just have to wait until all that built up momentum comes to a standstill before we can push and guide the masses toward a new truth. And unfortunately those of us who wish for progress are stuck moving at the pace of the average human intelligence. Like a classroom of 49 people, it will take a whole session to teach one idea even though you learn it in 5 minutes. The question is what do you do with the remaining 50 minutes? My advice is to find happiness and enjoy the extra time while the rest of the world plays catch up.

    It's weird that historical figures and the industry is supposedly full of INFJs yet they're said to be the rarest type. Interesting.

    Did someone on this forum actually say Sherlock Holmes was an INFJ? That's hilarious.

    I'm not everybody, but you are right nonetheless. Oh, and everybody is an INFP too. The world is dualistic.
