    Do you see that obscure, vertical rectangle right under the "P" in posts, which lies under your avatar? Wave your mouse over it. Individuality enigma is now defined.

    Let's face it. The individual is an expendable part of the whole, while the whole is crucial to the individual. It is a reciprocal, interdependent relationship.

    For instance, the phallus is an individual body part. It is essential to the whole. However, without a pelvis, without grasping hands, without the feet, we cannot procreate effectively.

    Unfortunately, we observe a detached phallus like Victor skittering about, slapping people in the face and claiming that the individual prevails.

    Hopefully, Victor will find a nice pelvis to confide in one of these days.

    I regret making this thread.

All these people running around claiming individuality, THE BETTER TO INFLICT THEIR INDIVIDUAL WHIM ON OTHERS!

    Individuality is surely the most destructive, long lasting myth ever to attempt to destabilise society. Luckily, society knows better. We will slap down this individuality craze with as many labels as possible!

    That self-actualisation hippie pyramid bullshit pisses me quite off.
    It's totally possible to have creativity, vitality, playfulness without having some of the steps under it (love, belongingness, self-esteem, sleep, safety, sex...).
    This is just trying to give the impression that only a totally pampered individual in a kindergarten society can achieve things. I believe in the opposite.

    About the MBTI, it's an interesting, but very flawed description too, for people who think or feel they fit well into it, it can give a good description of how they work, and therefore provide elements to understand them and know how to interact with them.

    That's probably what people who would enforce those kind of ideals would go for, so I guess so.

    Furthermore, when society is segmented in such a way; as the individuals are tagged and coded like the MBTI propagates, the individuals prejudge each other and stick with their own "kind". Consequentially, you will find a "sensor talk" room in Ventrillo, and you will find disseminated forums labeled with their respective temperaments.

    So when unhealthy individuals of unhealthy temperaments compound with each other, they exacerbate their own health problems like a schizophrenic family who refuses to interact with other, different families.
    This is basically true, but at least it gets people noticing and legitimizing fundamental differences between people, which is a good first step toward building real empathy.
    If you could be anything you want, I bet you'd be disappointed--am I right?
