Not sure why this occurs in so many profile descriptions. But there seems to be some odd correlation that assumes that certain personality types can not handle certain tasks. Like ohhh they are an INTJ, they must be good at science. When in reality, an INFP could easily be better than the INTJ at science.
What seems to be the case, if anything... is that there might be a generic "enjoyability" of certain tasks for certain personality types of doing things, but this should never be confused with ability or "you might not be good at this" because of your MBTI type...
Has anybody else noted these misnomers around the web?
Do you agree or disagree?
Personally I'm an NF, so I'll use myself as an example. I worked in IT as a career and had no problems whatsoever, in high school I was very good in math, actually, I had the highest Math score in the entire area of my state (still have the trophy) and did a thing called "math league" and "Mu Alpha Theta" ..
Now, would did I actually like it? Or did I enjoy doing this as a career? No... not at all, in fact, I hated it and it bored me to tears. I have more interest with writing/self expression/philosophy/doing things I believe of are of personal value. So those types of careers just kind of clash with me.
Anyway, it kind of annoys me when certain types think they are inherently better at certain things, w/o actual proof of it. I see this too often, but with no actual evidence of their ability.
