    Default Which type do you feel most insulted to be called?

    This poll, of course, is based on the types that people believe themselves to be at present.

    Identical is missing. Perhaps I'm depressed and miserable and identifying with my type makes me even more miserable?

    Possibly any Ego block type - though I'd be more amused than irritated .

    Interesting idea.

    Those who use Fe. ESE less so than EIE. EIE is not a favorable type in my eyes.

    I also wouldn't like to be called IEI, but this would be more of a case of my showing that someone was so, so wrong as opposed to my getting offended over it.

    btw, identical is missing for two reasons:
    1.) to reduce joke votes
    2.) if someone is genuinely insulted to be called their own type, they've either mistyped themselves or are very unwell atm

    I used to feel that way, but these days I feel more complimented than anything when people suggest most other types (with only a few exceptions), especially my activity partner.

    Why complimented? Is it because you're bored of being an LIE?

    that's kind of bullshit... you're imposing your understanding of things and people on the poll which could skew results towards what you believe the truth to be.

    No, it's because they're seeing different strengths in me. It's a compliment to be told I have strong Se or Fi, for example. Especially Se.

    Ahh, yes, because we value our 5th and 6th functions - correct?

    So if someone told me I had Ni and Fe, I'd be complimented?

    If someone has a problem with it, they could just not participate.

    And besides, all of these polls are intended to ask "besides your actual type, what type.... ".

    Only if you understand what Ni and Fe are and don't feel compelled to convince them of who you "really are" or whatever.

    Well, to be honest, I'd be more complimented if someone said I was good with Fi.

    I am interested in these results.

    Although, it would be more informative if the distinction could be made between feeling insulted because of the representatives of the false type you've known, or because of the profile descriptions/more abstract reasons. Could rule out some of the more indiosyncratic biases based on fallible human relations.

    Ezra, the thing I like best about you is that you really know who you are. I like that you are so well aware of your likes and dislikes, and your confidence in the level of closeness in your relationships impresses me. Your strong and well thought out moral system is also impressive. You're great at understanding not only how you feel about things and people, but also why you feel that way. I think more people should be as intensely loyal to their convictions and loved ones as you are.

    It's intended as an example of complimenting someone for having strong Fi (whether they're a Fi type or not).

    So if someone reads that for themselves and instinctively think it's a bunch of sarcasm, and is blocking feelings of offense ... as though it's hitting on fears deep inside they are NOT doing those things enough and thinks it's being passive-aggressively pointed out ... what might THAT mean about their type?

    Do people with Fi as their 5th or 6th function have strong Fi, or do they just have weak Fi but value it, thus they seek it?

    Yeah...

    But it's probably harder to say so it comes across right since she's not an Fi type herself. Maybe. That's just a guess.

    The latter, I believe.
