    Default Personality Soup

    I came across these Andy Warhol images recently, and it just reminded me of MBTI and some of the typism that can result. Consider these fun metaphors.

    MBTIcentral as assorted soups

    The principle of mass production and labeling is so deeply ingrained in modern thought as expressed in these images. The complexity and eclecticism of modernism is at complete odds with how humans have been living since the beginning of time. It goes against the simplicity of tribalism. We do need to understand ourselves and how we relate to others. When confronted with so many 'others' are we especially inclined to simplify them in order to make sense of our world? More now than ever? Or to about the same degree? What other factors produce typism instead of understanding?

    All and all, I believe THIS to be the truth about MBTI and personality analysis. (click on 'this' for link)

    the last link was hilarious. so true, so true. and we willingly jump into the cans, too. do you know why? because soup is so delicious when it seems to have been made just for you.

    hey, the 4 temperaments!
    You make an interesting point. But the fact that not everyone would not pick the same color scheme if all 4 were available at the store means the concept of personality analysis isn't totally BS, and yet no one would purchase an empty tomato soup can even if it was a cool shade of blue, right? Everyone knows we're all human, but it's naive to pretend that taste doesn't matter.

    toonia are you trying to say that we are all human despite the different shades of type?
    Wyrd is a concept in Anglo-Saxon and Nordic culture roughly corresponding to fate. It is ancestral to Modern English weird, which has acquired a very different meaning.

    I'm actually not concluding anything, but found the statements made by Warhol relevant to the way people approach thinking and relating in modern society in general, including how they think about MBTI. It just looks like an interesting analogy to explore.

    It's condensed soup. I thought she was implying that we're all thick.
