    Power is fragile, changeable, impermanent. It fades or gets overthrown. It's a deception.

    Intelligence is only the capacity to learn, not necessarily the wisdom to know what to do with the knowledge once you've gained it. It is only as good as the amount of wisdom that accompanies it. Intelligence does not equate to wisdom and understanding. Without these, intelligence is empty.

    Beauty is objective and it's fleeting. Everybody gets old or else dies young, so either way, the beauty fades [not referring to inner beauty or beauty of nature here though]

    Love...not romance...what the Greeks referred to as Eros...but rather brotherly love and/or agape love...never fails and even death can't annul its affects.

    So, if I had to choose just one...I'd choose love. But I would rather say...

    ....seek truth, gain wisdom, nurture understanding and live according to the principles of brotherly love...treat others the way you wish they would treat you, and then power won't seem like such an issue and intelligence will be recognized in all of its forms.

    In World War One, the most successful allied commanders were Canadian and Australian, because they actually cared about their soldiers lives.

    And there were none that the enemy more greatly feared than the Canadians and the Australians.

    I forgot to mention that my analyses are only free for the first 30 patients. Starting from Mole, i will have to begin charging. In other words you can get your reading for a fee.

    Carry on.

    Eh...

    I once heard an INTP say that she has all this anger and wants to rule the world, but then she remembers she is lazy.

    So while yes, INTP's are highly intelligent, do they all really care about that kind of power? Even the INTP E8 I know doesn't. lol

    I'll just have to post without asking for a reading. I'm a miser like that.

    The choice we make is naturally going to come out of what we like, what appeals to us, what we're attracted to, and so on. But I also note that the assumption in many of our posts--and I thought this way at first--is that we're talking about a key trait in a partner, which isn't explicitly mentioned. Food for thought.


    If I had to constrain myself to the rules for a bit and choose one of the four, I'd choose Intelligence--the ability to navigate the world around us is key. But if I could break out of the box a bit, Wisdom would be a better fit. It's kind of cheating, though, because many other traits, including some of those you mentioned, flow from it (to varying degrees).

    i'd like to change my response to:
    You hem me in -- behind and before;
    you have laid your hand upon me.
    Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,
    too lofty for me to attain.

    Ozones wants money, as money begets power. And Ozones wants to experience all the sensory pleasure that money can provide.

    You should start looking for substance, Ozones.
