    Thanks Jag.

    I am conducting an informal experiment here, to examine the number of people who agree or disagree with the above statements, and thus reflect on any possible Forer effect. I am using myself as a guinea pig. It would be great if you would share your thoughts, rather than complain about a thread title - as you can clearly see, astrology IS, and always has been, in the title.

    Me too. But ... perhaps I have made this too difficult for the NTs ... Plus, I have failed to attract my SP and SJ friends as well so far!

We are fairly different in many ways (and certainly in life path), and I don't see astrology having a good model for that (as well as lacking any coherent causal explanation).
    Seeing a chart for you and your brother certainly would be interesting ...

    I see many people just want to go back and forth in the other astrology thread rather than reflect on an actual reading to see if it truly is one size fits all vs unique.

    Going to change thread title if I can from "Exploring the Forer Effect via Astrology" ... perhaps find a better "hook".

    Thoughts?
