    Today in one of my literature classes my professor was talking about how order comforts us as human beings. For example, in the narrative of most novels we expect plot, character development, meaning, and resolution even if that neat little package doesn't necessarily reflect the chaos of real life. However, we still learn about life and reflect upon life through literature.

    MBTI is kinda like that too.

    Then it becomes boring and we need chaos and then go back to what we know when we need that comfort again until we are ready for a little more chaos.

    This is called regression.

    And we certainly don't need to regress to chaos, rather we need to learn to create.

    We are born chaotic, we attain order, and we flower into creativity.

    If we remain in the loop of chaos and order, we never mature into creativity and so we become absurd.

    And you are right, all that MBTI offers is the loop of chaos and order.

    MBTI offers no path to mature creativity.

    placing yourself in chaos allows you to control the uncontrollable

    loss of control can be like a food fight

    a food fight is not quite as entertaining as a poo fight

    when someone flings poo at you it creates choas...rinse and repeat

    Regression in the service of the ego, may be helpful in therapy.

    But outside of therapy regression is destructive and absurd.

    Surely you have noticed how destructive and absurd regression is here.

    Of course learning to create requires us to develop and grow.

    And the first step into creativity is to become independent from one's parents and peers.

    Have you taken the first step or are you still financially and emotionally dependent on your parents?

    lol, I left my parents house emotionally and financially years ago.

    emotionally though I am still waiting to grow up

    once we grow up we become old

    when we become old we become stagnant

    when we become stagnant our creativity dwindles

    when our creativity dwindles our perception fades as well

    when our perception fades we start to lose our sight

    when we start to lose our sight we become dependent on our kids

    are you dependent on your kids financially and emotionally?:yim_rolling_on_the_

    Why wait?

    Then you would have no need to make smart and silly remarks.

    wouldnt get very far being financially and emotionally dependent on a 5 year old.

    I will grow old when I am ready to die

    when I am ready to die I will turn over in my grave

    after I turn over in my grave ashes will be created

    these ashes will eventually turn to dust

    when these ashes turn to dust

    if it wasnt for women some things may start to rust

    now your confusing me
    Im out, its been fun
