    Being a realist does not preclude someone from being a freethinker.

    My definition of a freethinker: Someone that has an open mind but keeps a discerning bouncer at the entrance to refuse entry to the riffraff. It's a helluva party as long as they don't let gatecrashers ruin the fun. If they forget this then all that will be left in the morning is a burnt out shell and a massive legal bill.

    This thread is pointless, because everyone considers themself to be a freethinker. You might as well have a thread that says "my type is the most intelligent type". (Well actually we have those, and they are pointless too.)

    freethinking, to me, means unbounded use of Ne or Ni. judging functions in general hinder this.

    Well since I started the thread I should mention that I like the term free thinker as it is more ambigous and thus more open to discussion.

    That's kinda what I was stabbing at. It not so much logic or feeling but Intuition which makes a free thinker. Case in point those oh so lovable guardians. Some are brilliant but not great at thinking "outside the box".

    Why not use a word that is not in commonly known use to avoid confusion? Here let me give you a free one: swurn. Now create a definition and then we can debate which type is the most swurn.

    Intelligence is simply the ability to learn and understand. For example if you masterd quantum physics on wednesday and then forgot it by thursday morning yet re-mastered it by thursday afternoon you might be considered supremeley intelligent. Granted you might have a piss poor memory, but intelligent nonetheless.
