    i like to read and hear different theories and if someone labels the theory as 'conspiracy', i dont really let it blur my own judgment about it. but it is a fact that most of these conspiracy theories often cannot be proven in one way or another, thats why i dont think its good idea to blindly accept or dismiss them and they really need some throughout examination to be accepted as a reasonable theory or to be dismissed.

    Conspiracy theories can be especially attractive to individuals who integrate fear into their reasoning. Conspiracy theories can make a person feel like they have insider information, special personal insight, and a way to structure their fears into a set of clear answers. Even if they are powerless to correct the dark world view, knowing what is going on provides some sense of personal power. I can see both iNtuition and Feeling contributing to this, but there are other ways to arrive at conspiracy based conclusions.

    Well, i don't even like to think of it as conspiracy theory as it gives an impression of tinfoil hat wearing off milk sniffing nut jobs sitting in their cupboards with pins and a blackboard. Buuut.....

    Hmm, i also don't like the phrasing of 'fall for'...see above.

    I just think near anything is possible, this does not mean i subscribe to any specific theories.

    I entertain the idea of some.

    I could list some more, but there you have it.
    Amen to this. I'm extremely sceptical of conspiracy theories, though I'm also extremely sceptical of the official truth. I reserve the same level of scepticism for both. Well... more scepticism for absolutely wackytastic theories. I think a Ni dom is kind of at home with complexity and shuffling so many versions of the truth that they are less likely than others to e.g. believe we're being controlled by space lizards . If you see an INFJ nodding their heads to someone explaining any kind of a "certainty" of secret cover ups, they're probs just being polite and maybe thinking of a way to help the poor guy.

    This is a much more accurate description. You know when you see a Ni-dom sitting around being a bit detached not seemingly being productive we're really puzzling away at something. This is the Ni area of expertise. If some wonder at times what we're doing we're reflecting on the inside just letting that complexity of elements change and permutate. Conspiracy theories are too definite and aim for a kind of a simplicity of complex elements you just don't really find in the world as it is.

    EDIT: The only person I know whose adopted a "conspiracy theory" suddenly was an ESTP friend who decided that DaVinci Code was a documetary.

    But I'd like to point out that the conspiracy theory about the mimes is actually real. That's 100% real. The others are not.

    This is so funny/ironic cause I would say INFP's were to the least and also INTP, and forget even talking to an ISTJ...only going from irl though not on TypeC.


    I totally believe in them...and I know 2 esfps and like 4 isfp's ...it may be because one of the esfps just agrees with me to not make conflict though....those darn esfp's!!!!
