    Understood.

    I wasn't saying they were right to be upset, just explaining why they were. They're not intelligent enough to do it for themselves.

    Nice, thanks for the example of logical fallacy.

    I think it was lost on NoCap though.

    It's not a logical fallacy. There can exist a scenario where both statements are true. It would mean that men gravitated to the extremes while women balanced more in the middle somewhere.

    It's not a logical fallacy. The spread is larger among men. Does this tell you anything? Image:Normal distribution pdf.png - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (Blue is large spread (men), red is small spread (women))

    Another intuitive buzz phrase: "reading between the lines"

    You know a good, but unscientific way of finding out real world signs of intelligence people are looking for is by reading job descriptions. Most of them seem to be very Se, Si, and Ne as far as information gathering processes are concerned, not much use for Ni. Maybe that moves us one step closer to finding out what and where the box is. I'll post some later when I have more time.

    Actually, I always tended to like remedial and repetitive jobs that required very little thought because then my Ni could drift off into its own world while my physical body set itself on auto pilot. This strategy always made it easier for me to dream up new music and new scenes for movies that I made up in my mind. Unfortunately, when I was taken out of that repetition as occasionally required by the job, I pretty much threw a fit, which was among the reasons that led to my dismissal.

    Here's my take on whose smarter whose not. Who cares even if Ns are smarter (which I doubt) it really doesn't matter. I'm no genius yet some how I've made it this far in life, When I'm dead no one's going to remember me because of my IQ or my MBTI type their going to remember how I contributed to the world or how I shaped people's lives. I do enjoy MBTI and IQ but I don't think it really matters in the long run.
    In no likes experiment.

    that is all

    i dunno what else to say so

    I expect that from others, but we have discussed things over the years (formerly known as INTrPosr) so I would expect more Mac. You know (or should know) that MBTI does not measure intelligence or emotions.

    I don't think Mac was saying that it does. Gender doesn't either. But a wider range of intelligence is associated with the male gender- that doesn't mean smart guys are smart because they are guys. Same with MBTI. (If I understand correctly, being both a dumb lady and a possible sensor.)
