    Okay, let's really look at it:

    You'd said:
    we are forever seeking to put each other in some sort of conceptual box that allows us to avoid the work of actually getting to know someone.
    I responded: We self identify through broad labels often enough (Baptist, Hindu, Atheist, conservative, etc.) without that complaint attaching.

    Most people identify themselves with fairly broad labels. So the we is most people. Christian is fairly broad. Conservative too, by way of example.
    You aren't what you eat, but you're always what you swallow.

    there are so many layers within all the labels. for quick reference we tend to categorize and generalize. not me though, just everybody else

    Yes, I know, and I think the reason we do it is intellectual laziness and I think this gets worse as time goes on. As we move from reading books to reading articles to reading posts our attention span as it concerns getting to know others has followed suit I fear and I don't see this as progress.

    The real benefit to me, was to know that there were others like me, and that there was a reason that other people didn't think the way I did.
    Let's say that I suffer from a delusion. I will call this delusion "Fact-check Syndrome." I respond by citing facts.

    Most people online don't want to be corrected. They do not care about anything that does not agree with them.

    We differ then, to some extent. I think that labels are helpful, provided we recognize what they can't tell us about others and use them as general indicators subject to clarification that comes through experience and the particular hash outs that will happen in the exchange of ideas among people inclined to it.

    While I understand and appreciate the possibility you offer, my experience has taught me that people most often use such labels to more quickly dismiss others rather than understand them. Shorthand is just that ... and it requires the author to translate.

    I am INFP through and through. Introvert iNtuitive Feeling Perception

    INFP PERSONALITY

    INFP personalities are true idealists, always looking for the hint of good in even the worst of people and events, searching for ways to make things better. While they may be perceived as calm, reserved, or even shy, INFPs have an inner flame and passion that can truly shine. Comprising just 4% of the population, the risk of feeling misunderstood is unfortunately high for the INFP personality type - but when they find like-minded people to spend their time with, the harmony they feel will be a fountain of joy and inspiration.

    INFP personalityBeing a part of the Diplomat (NF) personality group, INFPs are guided by their principles, rather than by logic (Analysts), excitement (Explorers), or practicality (Sentinels). When deciding how to move forward, they will look to honor, beauty, morality and virtue - INFPs are led by the purity of their intent, not rewards and punishments. People who share the INFP personality type are proud of this quality, and rightly so, but not everyone understands the drive behind these feelings, and it can lead to isolation.

    All that is gold does not glitter; not all those who wander are lost; the old that is strong does not wither; deep roots are not reached by the frost.
    J. R. R. Tolkien

    WE KNOW WHAT WE ARE, BUT KNOW NOT WHAT WE MAY BE

    At their best, these qualities enable INFPs to communicate deeply with others, easily speaking in metaphors and parables, and understanding and creating symbols to share their ideas. The strength of this intuitive communication style lends itself well to creative works, and it comes as no surprise that many famous INFPs are poets, writers and actors. Understanding themselves and their place in the world is important to INFPs, and they explore these ideas by projecting themselves into their work.

    INFPs have a talent for self-expression, revealing their beauty and their secrets through metaphors and fictional characters.
    INFPs’ ability with language doesn’t stop with their native tongue, either - as with most people who share the Diplomat personality types, they are considered gifted when it comes to learning a second (or third!) language. Their gift for communication also lends itself well to INFPs’ desire for harmony, a recurring theme with Diplomats, and helps them to move forward as they find their calling.

    LISTEN TO MANY PEOPLE, BUT TALK TO FEW

    Unlike their Extraverted cousins though, INFPs will focus their attention on just a few people, a single worthy cause - spread too thinly, they’ll run out of energy, and even become dejected and overwhelmed by all the bad in the world that they can’t fix. This is a sad sight for INFPs’ friends, who will come to depend on their rosy outlook.

    If they are not careful, INFPs can lose themselves in their quest for good and neglect the day-to-day upkeep that life demands. INFPs often drift into deep thought, enjoying contemplating the hypothetical and the philosophical more than any other personality type. Left unchecked, INFPs may start to lose touch, withdrawing into "hermit mode", and it can take a great deal of energy from their friends or partner to bring them back to the real world.

    Luckily, like the flowers in spring, INFP’s affection, creativity, altruism and idealism will always come back, rewarding them and those they love perhaps not with logic and utility, but with a world view that inspires compassion, kindness and beauty wherever they go.

    Famous INFPs:

    William Shakespeare J.R.R. Tolkien Björk Johnny Depp Julia Roberts Lisa Kudrow Tom Hiddleston Homer Virgil
