    You cannot draw correlations of almost anything. You can only draw correlations about things that do correlate.

    We should not draw correlations between the MBTI and temperament/personality unless we have a fixed set of rules based on experimental study.

    We can learn from Hippocrates. We do not need to accept him as an authority.


    Eysenck was an empirist. He was an ESTJ, that is for sure. He was not given in to wild theores.

    Even today he is the foremost scholar in the groundwork of personality/temperamental studies.

    He was a racist and in many ways an unpleasant fellow. He said a melancholic temperament does not get lung cancer from smoking.
    He was well paid by the tobacco companies.

    Eysenck was sincere though. He believed what he wanted to believe.
    Self deception is an economic tribute. The ESTJs are a practical minded lot.

    The environment and the public health issues do not exclusively suffer in the hands of crooks.
    Read the M. Anthony speech about the honourable men.
    Any continuum has two poles. The continuum of naivete is not an exception.

    It is not the INFP kind of naivete that should get us most worried.
    There is an other end in the line.
