    A dialogue would acknowledge that these two different emotional worlds exist. But you finished our last conversation by saying you enjoyed it. But I didn't share your enjoyment.

    Normally I am happy and exuberant but I don't feel I can share my emotional life with you.

    Of course it is slightly mysterious why not. But I don't know you, so I can only guess.

    When the brain of the individual is lobotomized in such a fashion as the functional theory, the synapses fire and redirect signals from sender to sender, rather than from sender to receiver. Perhaps the signals are diffused in the empty cavities of division.

    Likewise, each archetype worship themselves; not themselves per se, but an idolized version of themselves. The NFs with the NFs, the NTs with the NTs, the SJs with the SJs, and the SPs with the SPs.

    Consequentially, those who worship MBTI become confused and convoluted like the segments of the brain. So when each segment worships itself, the societal brain deteriorates and falls like Rome did after its warlords succumbed to greed.

    Society operates like the individual operates, as Maslow's hierarchy of needs suggests: The SPs provide physiological needs, the SJs provide security, while the NTs and NFs accentuate self-actualization and creativity. The individual may accomplish every need for sustenance, but the whole cannot operate without specialized individuals.

    To avoid this depraved and false self-worship, we must reconcile ourselves and do away with the dialect of MBTI -- as the 8 functions are like the 8 colonies.

    Oh...wow...just...wow...

    MBTI works for some people, and it doesn't work for others.

    For example, I've had to come to terms with the fact that I'm either too incompetent or stupid to be able to apply the correct principles to myself. Oh well. I'll try again in two weeks or so.

    However, even though I've found it less helpful for my own personal growth because I just need more information, I find it very helpful in dealing with others. It has shown me that different people have different motivations and thought processes (which I already knew) but the system shows us why and how to go about it.

    Some people find it very helpful for their own personal growth. So I do not think it is negative for them.

    Others are quite hampered by the system and should find another means of self-actualization (to use the term you utilized).

    Everyone has to decide for himself or herself if the system works for him/her. If not, a new one needs to be found, or else it surely can be detrimental.

    Nonetheless, I do not see how that fact is really any different from any other system. Therefore, I do not believe MBTI is inherently evil (no system is, really) but rather just individual reactions to the system.

    Intresting to theorize about would be, if you have a society in which every person would know their mbti type and the whole world of people would stand explained by the system.

    Would that be the death of all good books ?

    No clue, it's kind of an inside joke. You see, Mystic Tater (OP) posted this image on some of our visitors' walls, so I thought I'd return the favour.

    oww inside jokes, I thought maybe we create a secret system only our little clique knows about. What about a secret handshake that if done wrong involves a slap in the face for the one who did it wrong ?

    Victor, how do you prove a preference to be true?
