Yes, I do wish that people would actually fully read my posts before commenting very unhelpfully.

No. I don't want a bunch of people who know more about hardware than I do scrutinising my decision, which will most likely be wrong in some way to some people. There doesn't seem to be any point.

I was hoping that people wouldn't leave comments like this. Oh well.

I don't talk to my family. I don't have anyone to turn to for the kind of support that I need. This is the problem. It won't just go away unless I find someone. I search every day without success.

I don't think that Generation II Pokemon sprites were bad at all; the artists knew what they were doing, but had technical restrictions on what they could do. I liked the result a lot... but I wouldn't compare my sprite here to them because I didn't really know what I was doing, so it turned out poorly-drawn rather than merely 'old fashioned' or something.

There's a small bit of code that makes it play one animation three times, then another once.

There are loads of different statistics about the prevalence of each type out there, and they tend not to give exactly the same values, but they all generally show about a 2/3 lean towards Thinking for males, and the same lean towards feeling for females.

For example: ∞ LINK ∞

The most common type for men is supposedly ESTJ, according to that, at least, and the most common for women is ESFJ... (Annoying that it seems that indeed most people are extroverts who are not particularly open to unfamiliar concepts...)
INFJ is the rarest type for males, apparently (and I certainly can attest to that from a life of knowing only males and feeling like I was different from them all...), and INTJ is the rarest for females! Interesting, that...

I think that the stereotypical ideas of masculinity and femininity arose from this. Since most men are thinky, and as such possess certain traits as a result of that, moreso than women, that affected how they 'typically' are seen to be (because in the majority of cases, it's accurate), and vice versa...

I've also read though that the T/F thing is weighed differently based on gender on certain MBTI tests, likely because of the results that testosterone and oestrogen have and so on and so forth. So a female thinker is probably maybe perhaps generally more caring and emotional and stuff than a male thinker, just because of her biological role. Probably. Maybe.

Are you seeing things in terms of 'have I ever?' rather than 'do I usually?'? That's a common thing that people do, which leads to feeling they're 'balanced', as we all do all these things at times...

From your posts, you seem more like a T to me... analysing things from a distance and giving advice and so on. F types tend to also have a distinct, uh, 'emotive' way of writing while T types come across as more... 'mature', or something? Generally speaking! It's not like any of these things are strict rules.

I didn't mean to make any kind of statement by using gender pronouns like that; it's just that most males are T types and most females are F types, so it made sense to use majority pronouns.
I feel more sexist for using 'he' all the time as a gender neutral pronoun, and I've never liked 's/he' or 'he or she' because they're clumsy and awkward. I'm not fond of the singular 'they', either.
I've always used 'he' to refer to some imaginary person used for an example, which bothers me, so I'd like to use 'she' more often for the same purpose and this seemed like an opportunity. It seems odd to be bothered by this word usage, as if it means anything.

If I were to refer to some hypothetical programmer, I would most likely refer to them as 'he', and if it were a hypothetical artist, I'd probably use 'she'. There's no judgement involved; they just seem like the majority sexes for those groups of people in my mind.
I've seen cases - questions in school textbooks come to mind - where the minority gender pronoun is used (referring to 'a plumber' as 'she' or something), and that always irritates me because it seems overbearingly politically correct.

My reaction to this is apparently to wonder whether this is a good description of "Introverted Feeling", which supposedly INTJ has as its third function thing, while INTP has extraverted feeling as its fourth function instead! o_O
...Which is a fairly analytical response, I suppose.

I don't know much about introverted feeling though, so if this is a description of it, then it's fairly enlightening.

And yet it's interesting because it's perhaps partly alien to me? INFJ has extraverted feeling as its second function, which means that they - or rather, we - are affected emotionally by external events and form emotional interpretations of aspects of the real world or something like that; attaching or detaching ourselves from things based on emotional feelings towards them and such.
Introverted feeling, on the other hand, would presumably result in these more abstract feelings arising inside you instead, not necessarily tied to reality, which does seem to be what you described!

Anyway, it's interesting because it's unlike my own experiences with emotion... I've never doubted that INTJ and INTP are emotional, but the way that they are emotional is so unlike myself, I suppose! So it's interesting to read about.
