My friend and I are both INFPs, but we’re totally different. I’m more of a stereotypical INFP, idealistic and dreamy and super sweet, and I am also shy and have social anxiety. My friend is the opposite, introverted but still outgoing, opinionated, and sometimes brash. However, we both care a lot about people and love giving hugs, and we’re so close that many people think we’re sisters. It’s really interesting how much variation there is within a personality type!

Of all things, her assignment was to cover the Christmas party. Vicki wanted to be at the asylum, covering that story, and establishing the whys, whens, and hows of the Joker’s escape. They probably gave that job to Lois - and for good reason.

Clenching her teeth, she snapped a few photos of the burgeoning crowd, paying no mind to how close she was standing to the tall, marble steps. Her heel slipped and she gasped, making a grab for the banister - but it was too far away.

I’m handling a character [Laurel Castillo] that is not a stereotype — she’s a Mexican-American girl who is growing up to be a woman. And to be able to have a say in the collaboration of what is written for her is something that I take very seriously, because I feel a lot of responsibility with that community.”

Being a proud “non-stereotypical” Texan can be an interesting experience. Because I’m quite vocal when asked about my dislike of country music but if someone asked me to line dance or two-step, I could do it easily. It’s one of those things you just learn growing up here whether you like it or not lol.

I made a u-haul lesbian/undercut joke to my (lesbian) girlfriend and my anti-SJW friend (who invited herself to my house when I asked two friends to come) is currently going on about how if a straight person said that they would be attacked and "oh so stereotypes are okay when you guys talk about them". Please come to Minnesota and save me she won't stop fucking talking or take a GOD DAMN HINT IM ON MY PHONE YOU DUMB WHORE

But of course many women do persist in male-dominated careers like mathematics, despite the stereotype threat and lack of sense of belonging. Luckily for them, there is an alternative to turning away from math – and this is to turn away from being female. Emily Pronin and her colleagues found that female undergraduates at Stanford who had taken more than ten quantitative courses were less likely than other women to rate as important and applicable to them supposedly math-incompatible behaviors such as wearing makeup, being emotional, and wanting children. The researchers then went on to provide evidence that it is not simply that women who like to wear lipstick and fondly imagine having children one day are intrinsically less interested in math. Rather, women who want to succeed in these domains strategically shed these desires in response to reminders that math is not for women.

why do so many mistakenly type as an infj? one of the rarest types? lol i dont get it.

Typing by test:

People with strong shadow functions or with activities that are atypical of their profile probably don’t test very well, and are probably also less likely to see themselves reflected in their correct profile.  (STPs with strong Fe/Ni, SFPs with strong Ni, SFJs with strong Ne, NTJs with strong Fi, NTPs with strong Fe.  Bookish Ss, quiet Es, organized Ps, empathetic Ts.)

Typing by profile:

The stereotypical INFJ profile has some nice attributes that a lot of people value or strive for: empathetic, analytical and prescient.  It also claims that they’re rare and special and misunderstood.  The misunderstood bit is like one of those logic problems where almost every INFJ feels misunderstood, but most people who feel misunderstood are not INFJs.

Typing by functions:

Contextualizing theory is hard!  Even if you correctly identify your functions, you still have to correctly order them - and what if you’re shadow-functioning?

Typing by example:

So many wrong examples floating around :(

i just saw the movie the edge of seventeen and I was expecting it to be really cheesy and dorky, and although it did have a lot of really funny scenes(definitely a bit of intentional cringe, but very well played), the movie had a really raw and powerful emotional undertone. the main character has a lot of social anxiety and depression throughout her life, coming to a head after the death of her father. especially having experienced a lot of similar feelings myself, it was really accurately portrayed and overall just really beautiful. although it definitely played into a lot of typical ‘teen movie stereotypes’, it also brought a new and honest perspective that was refreshing to see.

TL:DR; go see the edge of seventeen!!

Lavar Munroe makes dense, wall-mounted assemblages that combine elements of painting, sculpture, collage, and installation. At first glance his works look abstract, but gradually the textile scraps and other cobbled-together materials coalesce into images of man and beast acting out scenes of subjugation and rebellion. Here, an alien-like creature stands over the body of a prostrate, gender-ambiguous human; the beast is chained to some sort of uniformed guard, thus complicating our ability to determine the power dynamics at play. The work forms part of a series Munroe created in an attempt to reclaim the vicious stereotypes thrust upon him when he left his native Bahamas to study. “Upon entry into the American school system, words such as exotic, islander and native became the norm when many Americans referred to me,” he says. “These words were usually followed by bizarre questions regarding the way of life on the ‘islands’, which usually pointed to ideals that referenced behaviors of the savage.” His research into the origins of these derogatory clichés led him to study the history of anthropological displays of “third world” people in Western cultural contexts, practices that treated the “other” as spectacle and inherently subhuman. “Through the manipulation of imagery sourced from ethnologic illustrations, advertisements, and sideshow banners, I create an ‘elsewhere’ that examines narratives, exhibits and fascinations that resulted from such displays,” he describes. “In much of the work, the exotic human ‘other’ is often paired alongside wild beasts, thus referencing the systematic representation of human difference that occurred during the phenomena of the ‘human zoo’.” Through destructive techniques of cutting and tearing, and a bricolage that reunites the disjointed elements, Munroe parallels the project of examining these violent racist histories and reconfiguring them in order to move forward.

I was browsing the nintendo store and was kind of saddened to see that they are dividing their gift ideas by gender.

So out of curiosity I decided to see what they were marketing to me, as a woman. Is it just going to be cutesy games like nintendogs or something?

The signs are not good. Is this going to be a ‘men play consoles women play handhelds’ stereotype or something? Lets scroll down…

Huh. Well Pokemon is the next big handheld release. So lets see what they’re marketing to men?

…the same thing…? 

literally the exact same thing.

They posted the same page twice, and just changed the pronouns in the captions.

Nintendo doesn’t care what gender you are.

They just really, really want you to buy Pokemon.
