    Default Tests of "Hardworking Gene"

    Uh, the implications for us P types is sort of disturbing.

    Monkeys test 'hardworking gene'
    By Richard Black
    BBC science correspondent


    "Normal monkeys and people procrastinate - tend not to work very well when they have a lot of time to get the job done, and work better when the reward is nearer in time," Dr Richmond says.
    "The monkeys under the influence of the treatment don't procrastinate."

    The treatment consists of blocking an important brain chemical - dopamine...(more at link)

    I don't think that's very ethical. It pretty much negates the natural strengths of us J's, and allows P's to show that they're as good as us, maybe better because they can adapt, and we'll be shown for the inflexible people we are. I certainly like being able to feel useful and important because I follow all the rules and turn everything in early. This would take that from us J's. We delight in being able to criticize the procrastinators.

    Me need.
    “There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”
