    Yes but in that case of the normal people protecting the elders, they're still of the same stock, that they've earned the right to be elders by doing something, and that something besides preference has made them wise, like age. That simile doesn't really make any sense to me.

    Also, I don't see why you've chosen the east as being the most 'N'. It seems as arbitrary as choosing the 'west'. What evidence have you got for it to make this guess?

    What about poor Australia? Where's Australia fit into this?

    No offense to Ns. Just sayin'.
    I don't know. Seems to me with Ns running the show there would actually be less war and more precautions taken to rationally preserve life.

    Then again, this entire thread is filled with nothing more than stereotypes about MBTI, Americans, and god knows what else.

    I disapprove.

    It's not even a question of trolling, it's rather a question of references, and how you define the MBTI system as a whole.

    Why should I answer to a thread that assumes there is a direct causality effect between my ancestry, my "race" and my possible type?
    i don't assume anymore than what i listed in the theorem in the first post. this thread was supposed to call for data and discussion for whether there would be more intuits the further east you go; and not arguing superior races or cultures. it's a question of understanding and analysis rather than judgment and resentment.

    but you know, there's always free will. if you don't like it, you can always leave. i have no intent with this other than discussing the possibilities of that theorem.

    My dear Eck: Do you really think it's a question of being an "emo" or not here?

    Besides, so far, the purpose of this thread has been criticized by NTs only. Interesting point, isn't it?

    i based it on the theory that the earliest sapient humans came from india, as well as the spiritual influences that far-eastern countries have had. i guess you could make a point about having the same in the far-west culture, if you go by nativity.

    Actually, it was also criticized by me, and I'm an INFP

    But anyone who is educated knows that type would be more heavily influenced by CULTURE than race. Race is the basis of absolutely nothing.

    The thing I've noticed though is that spiritual influence (as in, religion and spirituality) seem to be opposing cultural values in both the east and west. How do we reconcile this?
