    Is it that grave?

    Often a star was waiting for you to notice it. A wave rolled toward you out of the distant past, or as you walked under an open window, a violin yielded itself to your hearing. All this was mission. But could you accomplish it? (Rilke)

    On the topic of Keirsey, why are we supposed to listen to him? I have always wondered where his authority came from. If Newton stood on the shoulders of giants, why should we bother standing on the shoulders of midgets?

    I am not saying he is useless, because to be honest he has never interested me enough for me to examine his work carefully, so I may have overlooked some stuff, but can someone vouch for him?

    We commonly use typology to predict human behavior or to advise people regarding how they should relate to others. If we'd like for our advice and predictions to be accurate, it is important that our understanding of typology and personality theory is accurate. To give you a simple example, if we'd like to understand what 'introversion' tells us about somebody's personality, we'd be well advised to refer to research in psychology or sociology rather than Keirseyan folk typology.

    We read Keirsey for the same reason we read Rick Warren, Sogyal Rinpoche, Rhonda Byrne and a countless number of other eloquent authors of self-help books that are permeated with undying optimism and approbation for their readers.

    I don't, but I do admire his ability to write articulately and present superficial and confused ideas as important truths.

    Haha yeah I got that, you were pretty clear. Still, I wish the truth tasted more like Keirsey.

    My friend, you've already agreed with me in another thread that folk typological generalizations applied to large groups of people are undesirable. I do not understand the purpose of your satire.
