Re: Dear Religious Freedom Watch Forums INTJs are actually one of the least common MBTI types, representing about 2% of the total number of people surveyed, IIRC. And, yes, Es, especially EFs, are far more common than Is, especially ITs. Anyone who has been online for a while understands how you can recognize sockpuppetry fairly easily. It's more of an art than a science, but I suspect we all have sussed someone trying to sock up before, and done so easily. You probably have a good idea who is using the "Anonymous" anonymous posting option at least 1/3 of the time, if you have read WWP long enough to get accustomed to different posters' word choice, favourite topics, spelling, phrasing, etc. You can guess with a decent degree of accuracy a poster's native tongue, education level, rough age (give or take 5 years), intelligence, aggressive / passive personality, conservative / liberal views, and many other things. It is not a perfect test, as my interest in logic / science topics and use of "thinking" verbs rather than "emotional" verbs skews much of my output as "masculine," and I suspect that males talking a lot about their passion for cooking / the arts or how they feel about family, friends, co-workers, etc., might skew as "feminine". Likewise, someone who uses txtspk excessively might or might not be bright, but they will skew as less intelligent. In short, you are far more transparent than you think, because you are typically at least partially unaware of certain perceived aspects of your personality other people pick up on easily, and how you "come across" to others (right or wrong). If only everyone could see themselves as others see them...but they can't. Simply choosing a different gender username to agree with yourself on a blog or forum is not sufficient to fool someone who has had even the most cursory examination of your output. Your inability to REALLY BE someone else, and to really "walk a mile in someone else's shoes" will always blow your cover. You can't demonstrate you know or have experienced something you don't already know or have not experienced. You can't unlearn what you have learned. You can't convincingly pretend to be from a different part of the country than you are, if there are regional differences in vocabulary or word choice or phrasing; imagine trying to pretend you are from a totally different country. Heck, Scientologists can't convincingly pretend to be non-cultists when trying to infiltrate critical websites and forums. Their mindset, vocabulary choice and gaps in knowledge / education (and not just a positive attitude about the cult) always out them, usually quickly. It's cute how they think they are fooling anyone for more than a second.
