    What does kohlrabi reminds you of? It's always looked vaguely sci-fi to me.



    This one reminds me of Salvador Dali

    That's definitely not true. I wouldn't tell you it is beautiful.

    I think those are big assumptions to make about people's internal workings. I don't agree with this set-in-stone "function order" for people of a certain type.

    its just a difference in communication styles mainly. intuitve = abstract. sensor = concrete

    Haha! Yes, I'm imaginging Dali putting some sort of wax in his hair to make it stick up straight like that.

    I wouldn't put it past someone who prefers Thinking and who likes art to say the same thing. It's the sort of activity that anyone who is tuned in to noticing natural beauty and appreciating art could do. Obviously the dad in the OP was just a boring, dull, non-artistic person who has zero appreciation for beauty -- and that does NOT --repeat NOT-- equal having a preference for Sensing!
    Listen Sarah, I think you are reading too much into my original post, and I think the only bashing being done here is by you. I never said I was right, and never said most of the things you are implying that I said. I was asking not affirming. You are coming to way too many conclusions about me and the way I think, from just a post's worth of material.

    If you feel like I was bashing your type, know that it was not my intention, but I really think you are just makinkg things up that weren't even in my post. Actually think my post even said that I didn't think any type was better than the other.

    You know, my father is not a dull person at all, just different, and that was all that I intended to demonstrate by my post. He is one of my best friends actually. Of course, you can't know that by my one post, nor can you know much else about me.

    Oh yes, one more thing.

    I seriously think you have issues.


    There! Now I judged you just as blindly as you judged me!

    Oh yeah, Sarah, if you think this is what I'm saying:

    "I really can't stomach anyone who believes that IN ORDER TO APPRECIATE ART, YOU HAVE TO PREFER INTUITION. It's offensive and untrue. Anyone can appreciate art, and noticing "Monet-ness" in the world around you does not equal having a preference for intuition."

    Then you are very wrong.

    Hey man, instead of taking all of that personally.. how about listening and making something positive from it?

    I think her reaction was strong, but it was building for a while. There are all kinds of implied insults to S types by attributing everything that's creative and interesting to the N. Even if it wasn't what you were saying, at least acknowledge it and move on.

    I don't think the N vs. S thing has much to do with appreciating art. I actually think Fi and Fe play a big part in the whole picture but it's difficult to articulate.

    Art, music, dance.. all those forms of expression are meant to invoke some kind of feeling - which I believe aids in the ability to appreciate something as art.

    yea, kestrel's right. I don't think that Sarah's post was meant to be offensive.
