Does this website make you better typists or worse?

I mean, if you post MBTI type of _ on a website like Reddit or Personality Cafe, versus annyomously typing someone here, it's different.

Here you can theorically type someone based on what you're thinking at the moment, on first impressions, etc.

Especially typing characters in sit-coms that are longer than 7 seasons. Characters change, flanderization, etc. It's not surprsing that the first 5-6 seasons some of the main characters resemble Type A (let's say its ENTP) and after some flanderization, that character resemble Type B (let's say its ENFP or whatever).

Also the posts like "Least materialistic type" or "Type that hates 6w7" or whatever. I mean, it can be used as a general measure, where if you know someone you're 100% convinced is a certain type and he is not materialistic at all (minimialism or whatever), that may work but overgeneralizing could cause problems.

This may be a flaw of Extraverted Thinking. XNFPs and XNTJs, use extraverted thinking. Some XSTJs are here commenting in this website. I don't see so many XSFPs here in the comment section though.

    It's really subjective. I can see how this website would help, but since you'd most likely be using many other sources, as you said, reddit or forums or even non-cancer mbti blogs, but then it would just be a whole of the internet and not really just this site. 

    Honestly just using this one website would probably screw you up in the head more than anything, who cares about your typing ability at that point.   I don't know how long P-D was around, but just look at pikup still talking to us in that limbo chatbox.  Maybe he was in distress before joining, but P-D obviously didn't fix anything.  We need to use him as an example to warn others of this website.   The most ironic thing, is that you come here with typology related goals, and you leave being an entity that in itself is untypable.

      That perspective upon the site makes it ten times cooler.

      Sounds like some SCP or internet entity that fucks up your mind lol

      I feel like I'm partially responsible

    Neither. I'm still second guessing all of my typings either way.

    Honestly, I find surprisingly a lot of IxxP in here. The only positive thing is, I learned a bit of enneagram, social variant and socionic out of curiosity in the last 2-3 months in the PD website. So I guess it made me a better typist.

    On the old site, personality-databank, there were a lot of comments explaining the reasoning behind many typings. (In my experience, more reasonings could be found than on other parts of the Internet, where the predominant typing method was often just to post lists of names and types.) So it's a matter of waiting for the comments to fill up again.

      I found the French section of the old website, sometimes their votes and typings were much different from the English. It's like looking in the "not migrated" characters and comparing them to the same exact characters but with a category. There are still some duplicates in this site.
