    I like to rock n' roll all night and *part* of every day. I usually have errands... I can only rock from like 1-3.

    Not necessarily. It gives the appearance of being skilled, but it could all be in the person's mind.
    You can't spell "justice" without ISTJ.

    Strength equates to the opportunity for me to relax a bit, since I can rely on the other person to do their portion of the work whether platonically or non-platonically.

    Strength is admired by Es and Js because it quantifies their need to compare competitively to others... how else would they know who is winning at life?

    Strength to IPs means they'll just have more and worse cognitive dissonance, so why should they value something that's detrimental to them?

    IPs aren't gauche like EJs, constantly demonstrating their arbitrary "strength", like a bodybuilder flexing in the mirror. Pure narcissism.

    How would IPs know? They're so lost in their inner worlds, it would take an army to find them and drag them out.

    Speaking of armies, if EJs weren't constantly engaged in their ruthless competions with other people there would be far less greed, corruption, and war.

    This obsession with "strength" is the root of all evil.

    IPs = marijuana party. Weed worship.

    I prefer a stiff drink, thank you!
