Read in February, 2011

Totally not my fault. I’m unemployed and this was on my roommate’s shelf. It’s a rite of passage, okay?

I think the four axes of the MBTI are interesting frames for the world. It paints a positive picture of introversion, and mentally redefining “sloppy” and “together” as “perceiving” and “judging” has made it possible for me to live around other people. The lists of values and work environment preferences were remarkably helpful—I read through all the types and got a much clearer picture of my own needs than I’d had previously. That said, the thinking/feeling binary is BS, “sensing” tends to be a euphemism for “stupid,” and type definitions are basically extended wishful thinking.

Incidentally, I’m an INFJ. I don’t have a supernatural grasp of other people’s feelings, maybe because I extravert my judging. (That's a joke.)
