    Jaguar: you don't know enough about somatotype to be able to make an accurate assessment about whether it's objective or not.

    Psych, what makes you so sure restoring a person's "core personality" (assuming it exists) is even desirable?

    I read about it weeks ago. I am entitled to my opinion, whether you like it or not.

    Jaguar: Yes you are entitled to your opinion. The facts are that you REALLY don't know enough about somatotype to be able to make an accurate assessment about whether it's objective or not.

    How about educating yourself on the subject.

    More than half of the world never heard of MBTI. And more than half of the people that heard of MBTI have no friggin clue on how it works.
    Listen to me, baby, you got to understand, you're old enough to learn the makings of a man.

    Alexsei: It's a matter of good engineering. You don't build an airplane out of cast iron.

    As the Bible says: You don't yoke an ass and a bull to pull a plow. You want to maximize your advantages and minimize your disadvantages.

    It's a no-brainer. Your intention is obviously to ridicule.

    Jaguar:

    My objective is to share information. Your objective is ridicule. Just don't read what I write. I could care less how you feel. Can't you just block my posts?

    Unless of course you dislike your natural advantages and disadvantages, which can happen.

    Second question: Why would personality be biologically determined? We don't hatch from eggs in the sewers, and even the most hardcore sociobiologists tend to acknowledge some environmental influence. What's the role of upbringing and social relationships, if our personality is hardcoded into our genome?

    It's a no-brainer. Your intention is obviously to ridicule.
    I'll keep counsel of what my intentions are, thank you very much.
