Libertarians go for conspiracy theories no matter who is in power.
    How about the anarchists? They have distrust of the government, after all.

    Well, I'll have to move right, right, away from the politicians on their campaign for this Saturday's state election

    Nah. To the contrary! Someone with weak Ni would have little idea over how to moderate the function. Although I'm Ni-dominant, I have standards which I use to see whether these ideas stand up to scrutiny. And all of them fail for several reasons:
    1) Too many people involved.
    2) Logistical nightmare
    3) The world is large, you know.
    4) Humans don't act rationally.

    I could list some more, but there you have it.

    Yea, the more mature the function, the less likely it is to come across in a negative fashion such as conspiracy theories. Ni preferrers would know which patterns (that may point to something like a conspiracy) are more likely to be legitimate.

    My dad, an ISTJ, seems to.

    I know I've heard that Ni is what does it, but it seems to me like someone with dominant Ni would have the foresight to see past them.

    (Obviously I'm biased against conspiracy theories, so to those who dig them, well, what's your type?)
    In my experience, it's been INFPs, ISTJs and INTPs.

    INFP here. I spent a lot of time researching conspiracy theories and think many are facts. I had an ENFP friend who also believed a lot of it. IThe hard part is trying to sort out the BS theories that are mixed in with the ones that seem like they may actually be credible.

    I have a new name for this thread; "Which type of people are less likely to fall for the lies the government and media tells the masses of sheep to instill fear and keep them content enough to be weak?"

    Kidding, but so many disregard this type of thing based on the name conspiracy theory without doing any research or reading of their own. They can completely put trust into their government but not everyone who doesn't isn't stupid. There are documented facts that show all kinds of things they don't teach you in school, such as how the whole middle east fiasco started decades ago.
    I guess it depends on who's word for it you'll accept.

    Hmmm...I really think there's a conspiracy here to peg INFJ's as conspiracy theorists. I'm going to send a text message to the homeworld and have you all zapped with a big laser.

    ***disclaimer-for the very literal folks who may NOT know I'm kidding, I'm kidding...maybe.

    For all that we have done, as a civilization, as individuals, the universe is not stable, and nor is any single thing within it. Stars consume themselves, the universe itself rushes apart, and we ourselves are composed of matter in constant flux. Colonies of cells in temporary alliance, replicating and decaying and housed within, an incandescent cloud of electrical impulses. This is reality, this is self knowledge, and the perception of it will, of course, make you dizzy.
