I’ve been inactive on this blog for most of the past 8 months cause uni, my social life (props to me for finally having a real one), and general life stuff got in the way. It was mostly me not having my own computer and being forced to go to the school library any time I wanted to access the internet on anything besides my phone that stopped me from making content for this blog. But I recently got my own laptop, so I can make content for this blog more easily and frequently.
I’ve been doing some thinking about my type over this time too. I briefly typed as ESTJ but realized that’s probably not true cause I don’t use Si/Ne as far as I know. I’m also probably an introvert and I might have mistyped as an extrovert cause of certain circumstances and personal goals forcing me to act more extroverted. So since I have a definite preference for thinking over feeling, that would make me likely ISTP or INTJ, not ESTP as I typed myself when I started this blog. Or maybe I’m an ESTP who’s comfortable being alone and having quiet time. That’s a summary of how I’ve been feeling about my type as of recent.
I would personally type Tumblr as a whole as INFP.
Cause it’s a pretty FiNe SiTe.
LMAO OMG YASSSSSSSSSSS YOU SLAY SO HARD TUMBLR USER SENSA-TION YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAS GET IT *Sound of air horns going off*
But for real,
Fi: The typical Tumblr user has a strong sense of identity and of what they are passionate about and a Tumblr blog is a great way to let out these feelings. Whether your description is “nonbinary polysexual feminist in a queerplatonic relationship who loves fandoms more than they love xirself” and you post about social justice and fandoms or you’re more of a “Dallas. 21. Straight. Arizona.” type and you post pictures of palm trees and attractive people drinking ice coffees, there is a niche of Tumblr that you can identify yourself with. Speaking of Fi behavior, there is no shortage to posts reminding you to practice some form of self-care written by someone with a url like spaceflowerqueen or posts where someone with a url like aromanticobama demands a SIGNAL BOOST for a current issue that they feel strongly about.
Ne: There is a niche on Tumblr for everything. Aesthetic/photography, fandoms, social justice, porn, psychology, relationship shit, fitness, etc. Tumblr is not a website about one specific thing. This is how you get “Dallas. 21. Straight. Arizona.” types on the same website as “Kaelenn. 16. He/they. Plz read description before following” and “Marissa. 19 year old meme queen. Nutella and Chris Pine are my husbands.” types.
Si: Look at how many memes on here are based around non-current forms of media, specifically ones from users’ childhoods. Shrek, Smash Mouth, Drake and Josh, and old Spongebob episodes are some. While Tumblr is more of a Ne than a Si site, you can still find users’ pasts influencing their content.
Te: You’re not doing anything productive right now, I guarantee it. You could be doing something productive instead like getting some well-deserved sleep or making some internet content or doing household chores or getting home/school/professional work done. But nope. You’re on Tumblr browsing MBTI posts or maybe you’re just on your dashboard and you happened to see this post and decide to read it to see what it’s all about. MBTI isn’t even something that’s applicable to your daily life outside of typing other people for fun. Keep up this procrastination and society will destroy you eventually. Maybe not anytime soon, but society will destroy you.

Since it’s not socially acceptable to read a book while you’re at a party, I want to host a party where everyone brings a book or two, and just reads together in the same room. It will be beautiful, and everyone will have a lovely time. I will be everyone’s favorite hostess.
INTJ: Taking Tumblr culture way too seriously
INFJ: Bringing a book to a party
ISFJ: Searching for porn on Google with Safesearch enabled
ISTJ: Going under the speed limit on a busy road
ISTP: Playing games on your phone during a funeral
ISFP: Skipping out on responsibilities cause you’re too tired to get out of bed after staying up until 5 am looking at aesthetically pleasing clothes and accessories online
INFP: Getting a septum piercing
INTP: Watching anime
ENTP: Wearing cosplay to school or work when it’s not Halloween or a similar occasion
ENFP: Letting yourself get trapped in the friendzone of someone you have feelings for
ESFP: Trying to find someone to hook up with at a family party
ESTP: Almost anything an ESTP does after enough drinks
ESTJ: Getting married at 20
ESFJ: Getting emotionally invested in other people
ENFJ: Being like “we should hang out more often” to someone who doesn’t want to hang out with you more often
ENTJ: Sliding into the dms of someone you’ve met literally once and making yourself look hella thirsty in the process
INTJ: Silently judges everyone who’s being loud with their friends in the halls, finally feels at peace when they get to class and everything quiets down
ISFJ: Gets lost and feels guilty about showing up to class a minute late
INFJ: Is one of the only people in class who actually pays attention the whole time, sends comforting vibes to ISFJ when they sense their late-to-class guilt
ESTP: Creates a mental list of who in their classes seems like dating or friendship material, plans out how they’re going to impress everyone around them, gets approached by a classmate to play a part in a film project
ESFP: Makes at least one new friend in class, wonders how many missed classes they can get away with
ISTJ: Settles themselves back into their academic routine, is on their way to their second class of the day when someone sneaks up behind them and stabs them in the back, then picks their body up and hides it somewhere. A security camera was nearby and from the footage, it can be seen that the killer was wearing a black hoodie. OH SHIT THIS POST JUST BECAME A MURDER MYSTERYYYYYYY *Law & Order theme starts playing*
ISTP: Is bored in class, finds out about ISTJ’s murder and decides to solve it cause they have no better way to put their Ti to use. They ask around and find out everything they can about what happened. They then sneak into the school’s security office and view the footage of the murder itself
ISFP: Tells ISTP that they were with ISTJ right before they got killed and that ISTJ was planning on walking to their next class with INFP
INFP: Thinks ISTJ flaked on them, breaks down crying when ISTP pulls them out of their class and tells them ISTJ got killed. ISTP tries to console them but has no idea how, so they just give INFP a tissue and patiently wait for them to stop crying so they can be questioned
INTP: Is in class with INFP holding a black hoodie that looks exactly like the one ISTJ’s killer was wearing. Gets approached by ISTP, who demands answers. ISTP then determines that there’s no way INTP could have been the killer because they’re too scrawny to lift the equivalent of ISTJ’s bodyweight and asks INTP where they got the hoodie. They say that it belongs to them, but ESTP borrowed it briefly earlier that day.
ENFP: Sits beside ISTP in class. ISTP appears tired, so ENFP asks what’s wrong. ISTP tells them that they’re trying to find ESTP to get a step closer to solving ISTJ’s murder. ENFP is confused about ISTJ’s death because earlier that day, they and ESTP were approached by ISTJ to help film a scene for a film project where ENFP held the camera while ESTP played the part of a murderer. ISTP then puts everything together. ISTJ faked their own murder by finding a place with a camera to have hard evidence that they’ve died, then they got ESTP to move their body away from the camera because an athlete on their level would have no problem lifting and carrying another person, and they got ENFP to stand out of the security camera’s frame filming the whole thing so that ESTP would think that ISTJ needed to appear to die for a film project. But one question remains. Why would ISTJ fake their own death?
ENTP: Finds out that ISTP is trying to solve ISTJ’s murder, approaches them and tells them that they saw ISTJ alive after they apparently died. ISTP and ENTP combine the power of their functions and deduce where ISTJ has fled to. ISTP takes an Uber to a train station where ISTJ is and asks them why they faked their own murder. It turns out that ISTJ has been going through a Ne grip and has decided to abandon their life and adopt a new identity as a traveling assassin for hire. ISTP is like “wtf m8″ at first but then stops giving a fuck about the whole situation and leaves ISTJ to do whatever they want. ISTP then goes back to school and tells ENTP, ENFP, and ESTP about everything that happened. They all agree that it wasn’t the easiest day to handle, but at least they got an interesting story out of it
ESTJ: Puts their headphones in, gets hyped up by their “get shit done” playlist, is excited to get back in the grind and work on their first assignments
ENFJ: Gets compliments on their outfit from their friends, dies on the inside when they get their first assignments
ESFJ: Hugs all their friends while gushing about how much they missed them, unintentionally gets a few people in their classes to briefly crush on them, cries on their friends’ shoulders when they find out ISTJ apparently died
ENTJ: Carefully puts together a stylish outfit, organises their locker, notebooks, and other school supplies, gets disappointed when no one compliments them on any of that
