    To understand the object of the study is to realise that you can go a step deeper each time. It's not like leaving it. So I think, at least.
    Maybe it depends on the object

    Am I the only one that just assumed this was about spending too much time on MBTI central?

    There's no such thing, Metamorphosis.

    Wildcat:

    Are you saying that once we understand something, we no longer have to study it?

    He's saying that when you change perspective you gain new insight. Through abandoning the study of MBTI you are effectively stepping out of the box thinking vise. Or something like that.

    He is relying us to fill in the blanks, thinking that there must have been a point. This is a classic get-them-interested -trick that leaves me uninterested.

    I was discussing an article with my sweetheart about the rising cost of living:
    Living paycheck to paycheck gets harder - Yahoo! News
    which led me to suggest that we substitute beans for more expensive protein-rich foods, like meat.

    So this opening post, while seemingly unrelated, brings an aspect to the table that is worthy of consideration....

    I didn't say that I didn't say it. I said that I didn't say that I said it. I want to make that very clear.

    I might be biased by my philosophy class, but the title of the post sounds like Plato's forms, and the body of it is like a Zen saying.

    Uhg...it reminds me of when I am having difficulty with something so I leave it for a little while, come back, and can then easily come to the solution. But I agree that wildcat probably just comes up with these things to see if we will provide an answer for her.
