    I've been doing Shaolin kung fu, but it's kind of artsy. They do teach some self-defense, but I would prefer to try something a bit more technical--I want to spend much more time learning techniques. I think I will try Wing Chun next--Bruce Lee Kung Fu.

    Just teach women to do this and there will be no more rape:

    Yes, that would be ideal for a woman. Tae-Kwon-Do too. Your legs are your strongest muscles and women usually have excellent flexibility. But you'll have to do a heck of a lot of kicking to make it worthwhile.

    Fascinating. I watched the video and then another Shaolin demonstration. I'd love to be able to move that gracefully.

    Gotta say, Wing Chun is probably one of the best options. They teach you to maximise your force and speed and also deflect incoming attacks as opposed to meet them using force. This helps if you are smaller than your opponent. Wing Chun was also developed by a woman.

    Also, whenever I read this thread, I feel the urge to FLY YOU AND YOUR SISTER OUT OF THERE PINK!! Argh!! *kicks your place of residence, or at least the creepy men there*

    Off to swim and ponder.

    I'd someday like to talk about what I mentioned - street talk being full of casual sexual brutalities. And how that may be lowering peoples' resistence to brutal acts.

    Maybe a separate thread is called for?

    Later.
    Yes, my dear sister, was stopped coming home at night in the dark by rapist. She immediately resisted and threatened to smash his face with a milk bottle and he ran off. She returned home shaken but safe because she resisted.

    I have also been stopped by a criminal when I was alone. It was apparent to me that he was skilled in immediately taking control of his victim. And my first impulse was to be polite and go along with him. But I resisted my impulse and didn't let him control my feelings or actions. And I escaped.

    What struck me was how skilled he was in provoking and controlling my feelings. In fact he used my feelings against me. So it was by restraining my ordinary natural feelings that allowed me to remain in control.

    My criminal was emotionally intelligent in this situation. However the mark of emotional intelligence is restraint. So it turned out that I was more emotionally intelligent than my attacker.

    Also I have been taught to box so I have been trained to keep my eyes open when I am being hit in the face.

    So I would suggest, for both men and women, that they learn physical self defence.

    And I would even more strongly suggest that we learn emotional intelligence by learning emotional restraint.

    Also emotional intelligence can also be learnt by not letting anyone put you into a trance against your will. For this is what the attacker will do - he or she will use induction techniques to put you in a trance so they can control you.

    Unfortunately MBTI also uses induction techniques, such as jargon, to put you in a trance. So MBTI trains us to enter a particular type of trance, let's call it the MBTI trance. This is a similar technique used by other cults - it distracts the mind with repetitive jargon so that a trance may be induced.

    And unfortunately most members here use MBTI to emotionally manipulate others. And the sad truth is that those who manipulate are easily manipulated themselves.

    And last but not least, the casual sexual brutalities of the street also induce a trance, which makes us easier to control by those who wish to use us for their own purposes.

    This is a good example of blaming the victim.

    So the right thing to do is to resist the suggestion of Algora J.

    And if I were a moderator, I would ban him or her for a period to make it plain that we will resist.

    Like, so what do you mean by this? How might MBTI be used to manipulate others? What would an "MBTI trance" look like?

    Just curious.

    Agreed..or at least an ENTJ who has seniority! Of course, I always think male ENTJs are sort of cute when they're angry.

    Watching very composed and calm men suddenly become enraged at something is sort of humorously sexy at times.

    If you ask open ended questions, it gives the impression you might be interested in the reply.

    But if you ask closed questions, it looks like you want to be controlling and manipulative.

    And you have asked closed questions above.

    Of course you don't have to ask questions at all, you can just say what you think - but that would make you vulnerable.

    And to protect your vulnerability, you try to control me with closed questions.

    And you hide your intention behind, "Just curious".

    I find it hard to believe you are motivated by simple curiosity.

    Curiosity, they say, killed the cat. Perhaps the cat's name is Victor.

    But look to your left - I am not a cat, I am a panther.

    Perhaps you have just made a mistake, if so, do tell me your feelings on the matter - I would be delighted to listen.
