It started with an interest in MBTI, mostly to have a way to understand myself. But, mostly this has been a forum of expression and exploration for me, a place to be exposed to and to try on new ideas, and attempt to really be me in a controlled 'space' and see what it means before I unleash myself on the greater world.
I enjoyed reading the replies. I must say one can learn a lot here. example i had to search the net to understand
totally agree with @Chthonic who
The pure social value of TypoC is also nice to hear of.I agree with @Marmotini
I briefly scanned some of the latest posts by Mole. Based on that, I did not see any personal belittling, but consistently offering contrary inputs. Though necessarily brief, they are articulated ok. I do not find anything wrong in his reply here also. I imagine it to be born from the skeptic toolkit structured for hard science. Its bound to run contrary on a typology forum and as long as its not personal I would certainly consider his views.
I have this personal view thats whats very comfortable to many generally, must generally be good for you in terms of the 'intelligence of the human body'. Like chocolate, wine, salted food and start extending it to things like meditation or mbti, lol. Of course, one wonders how something like smoking can fit in here. Also I argue against myself by recollecting a tamil proverb that says 'an excess of even the nectar of immortality acts as a poison'.
It is interesting to see the aspergers brought up here. I have a relative who is rather severe degree autistic. Don;t know exactly about that. But I was thinking about the physiological basis of behaviour and personality a lot and then thereafter its extension into religion or spirituality and the bases and effects in the body. But, I cannot do or pursue anything concrete in that line. If I can set the clock back, being a scientist in a University would be something I will really think about.
Its what I will also settle into in no time, I suppose, a nice place to hang out now and then, once the learning curve flattens out.
Oh, I love Mole, but he hangs out here to warn people mostly about the evils of typology. It's a hobby he's apparently been pursuing for years.
