    you have to admit, not bad for someone who stares blankly at someone speaking spanish.I understand spanish, i just can't express it. ie i know the words as i see them/can usually get the context, but i don't know words from my ass.

    Just jump in and speak it... You'll butcher it at first, but then you'll learn!

    MBTI is all theory (with the exception of introversion and extraversion) but as for biology I would say there was no need. An evolutionary trait only becomes important if it becomes key to a species' survival and there is enough in one PePi pair for young to reach maturity and keep the species going through children of their own.

    I can't see any logical reason why it should be more evolutionarily beneficial though... and it's certainly not an awesomely effective theory like gravity

    The difference between sensors and intuitives is pretty overblown. Fe-Ti vs Fi-Te and Ne-Si vs Ni-Se are bigger mindf-cks.

    as someone who's delighted by grey areas, I've always seen it as more of a continuum than anything, with most people falling near the center (as with any continuum... well, the normal ones anyway)

    It's not that having one PePi pair would be beneficial its just its not maldaptive enough. Traits become important when those who don't have them can't survive long enough to have children. People can survive on one Pe function - Se to rapidly spot and adapt to environmental changes and Ne to determine patterns to catch prey. You would only need both if both instinctively seeing a pattern to corner a prey and Se to pin it down are required for an individual to survive in the environment. It's the same with Ni and Si.

    As for theory kewlness I agree Newton is much more badass. However quantum mechanics bests them both.
