    Solution: Know what you are capable of and stop holding yourself to external standards.

    How can you know what you are capable of if you abandon external standards?

    Not just (double)thinking what you are capable of, but actual demonstrated ability?
    Don't know how much it'll bend til it breaks.

    It's funny that the majority of people in the poll admit to patent irrationality and delusion. Is that fashionable these days or something?

    Perhaps most voted before they realized they were voting for insanity.

    I'm not sure. I guess everyone gets to answer that question for themselves.

    Or maybe they disagree that it's insanity and delusion. Just because the two of you are so convinced, doesn't mean everyone else is.

    If you don't think its insanity, then argue with logic and reason please. Oh wait, you can't.

    Considering how we behave very much according to nature and instinct, I doubt anyone truly believes in the validity of opposing statements and at the same time acknowledges that the two are contradictory. Else, how do we eat? How do we even inhale oxygen and live? If anyone declares his or her belief, then they must be either fooling themselves or they simply misunderstand the entire thing. And because of how some people talk about contradictions not being contradictions after all, I suspect it's the latter. I mean, the "state" of contradictions don't change over time. The external world is not according to the internal, at least in this universe where there is "order." Without logic to dictate reality, nothing can exist. Things will not relate to each other. In other words, a universe with different rules is not even a universe at all. Being illogical is normal. The real problem is when you acknowledge illogicality.

    Perhaps the ones voting no are insane but don't realize it. I mean, people that use doublethink cannot be trusted to answer accurately. It might be accurate now, it might not a second later. Asking doublethinkers anything is an exercise in futility, there is no answer.

    Of course, I use it all the time. I'm not sure how profound it is though. It's just related to use of Ni.
