    Ambiversion/Ambiverts Do Not Exist

    This absolutely brilliant article by a career type researcher and professor really illuminated some things for me. If you think you're "in the middle," think again. Taking a step towards differentiation may in fact be the healthiest thing you can do to make progress in your own personal...

    Great INTP career thread...

    Found this thread on another forum. It's basically 6 pages full of INTPs posting their various career/life stories. I found it to be useful and interesting. These kinds of threads are usually just high school/college students, but this one has loads of older INTPs sharing their career...

    Jung: Types can be divided into subtypes...what are the implications?

    In Psychological Types, Carl Jung says this about 2/3 of the way through the book: What are your thoughts on this? What are the practical implications of this regarding career/work and how does this relate to MBTI? Jung mentions 3 possible subtypes, not 2. MBTI only recognizes Ti being...

    Software Engineering vs. Careers with more humanism

    This is a topic that keeps cropping up on this forum. It's something I often think about b/c I'm currently studying computer science and the plan at the moment is to pursue a career in this field, most likely related to software engineering. Nevertheless, I often find myself toying with the idea...

    Are some types more likely than others to choose the wrong career?

    Just a thought experiment... If we accept from the start that there exist "best-fit" and "worst-fit" occupations for any given type, are some types more likely than others to be led astray and end up in unsuitable careers/occupations? Also, what are the factors that lead to poor...

    SPLIT from "What gender are you internally?"

    This basically sums it up as far as I am concerned, except for the part in bold. Gender dysphoria likely has biological roots so it's incorrect to label it a mental illness (Causes of transsexualism). Same goes for homosexuality. The underlined part is a major concern. While homosexuality is...

    Best work/study partner type for INTPs?

    Say I've got a work or school project to do...which personality type is best suited to working closely with INTPs? I prefer working alone, but sometimes, you have no choice. I may have to do some programming assignments in my intro to CS class with a partner. I'm thinking an INTJ would be...

    Are there certain types that are more prone to greed? When I say greed here, I am referring to lust for money, power, possessions, wealth, prestige, fame... From what I've observed, some people will literally feel like they failed at life if they don't become ultra-rich and powerful. What...

    American Psycho - Patrick Bateman Type?

    This has been discussed on other sites, but I wanted to get people's take on this...What is Patrick Bateman's type? Obviously, there's not going to be a single right answer here because he's a fictional character who's an amalgamation of everything the author feels is wrong with society. That...

    Need input: Are the lower functions "slaved" to the dominant or are they independent?

    So...a recent discussion prompted me to post a new thread about this topic...There are two things I'm trying to clarify... My starting assumption is that all people have all 8 of the cognitive functions, but only one function is highly conscious, and all the rest are less so, with one being...

    Robot Chef

    I was cooking for hours yesterday and wore myself ragged. At the end of it, I knew what I needed was either: 1) Slave(s) to cook and clean for me. I am too poor to hire a personal chef and don't trust leaving a stranger in my house while I go off to work. OR 2) Robot(s) to do the same...
