    well they say that self control is teh only thing that seperates humans from animals. yet how often can we say we exercise self control
    I always thought it was just the human ability to think it is something it isnt. For better or for worse.

    Will do, and I don't know about your loathing of humanity. I would have been willing to be un-spared. But thank you for the consideration.

    I really like sociology. and sometimes I think that personality theory should fall more under the sociological than the psychological umbrella. Of course, that would probably imply that personality came from nurture and not just nature, but personality also effects society and a interactions are generally smoother when you know type...I like to buy sociology books.... I would say I like to read them, but I usually get about 1/3 into them and skip to the end and never finish reading. I have this chronic problem with being able to finish things, even things I enjoy. Anyway, on to the next point;

    See, this is why I love NTs. They think of the things I never would and make them sound so reasonable.

    This too. ^_^ Unless I'm getting paid, really? Is there a job like that? Illusion remover? Do I have to go to a warehouse and know a secret code word?

    I've noticed that. Good show.

    Almost. Never. It sucks.

    Oh, and for the record, when I said that the idea of appealing to the hierarchical structure was depressing I didn't mean that I'm actually depressed (melancholy, well, that's just who I am, doesn't count). I could have easily put in the word disappointing, frustrating, annoying, idealism-shattering, and/or arduous. It takes more than a few dozen negative epiphanies to stop me!
