    Default Put your type in the best light

    I was reading Kdude's blog and he was not enjoying the "SPs just want to party, ain't no reflection going on in that head" vibe you get from some personality descriptors about SPs.

    I was thinking about what the different types might say about the other ones and I came up with this:

    NFs are the only people who care about others, SPs will ignore you if something better comes along, NTs are jerks, SJs care about accomplishing tasks, not about people.

    SPs know how to smell the flowers, NFs care too much about what the flower feels while it's being smelled, NTs are dissecting flowers and SJs don't notice flowers as they run to the next place they are supposed to be.

    NTs are really smart, NFs are sort of smart, SJs are maybe a little smart and SPs don't care if they have a brain whatever smarts they have.

    SJs get stuff done, NTs talk about intellectual ideas of getting stuff done, SPs get something done if it makes it easier to have fun and NFs are looking at rainbows.

    These can be as realistic as you want to make them.

    Rainbows > productivity imo. Maybe it's me.

    Clings to me as a sick fixture
    My throbbing heart it gnawed apart
    It stalks and hunts me through mirrors

    Most of the SPs I've known were pretty skilled and intelligent in whatever niche they carved out for themselves, but they don't preoccupy themselves with intelligence itself. I get a sense that they think, "If I'm intelligent, that's how it is; if I'm not, who cares? I'm going to live life to the fullest as it unfolds anyway ".

    I can pretty much agree with that until the last statement. I don't see how any Ji dom in particular, be they S or N, can think like that. It's just reinforcing a Se dom a point of view on to the whole temperament. Many ISPs would be categorized as working against the external circumstances, or in the worst cases, unhappy and not being able to contribute in the way others want them to.. They are introverts, first and foremost. This doesn't mean they just "stay inside" sometimes. It means their views are too introspective to always come around to either some conventional or hedonistic lifestyle. Some may be. Some may not. Some may have a lot to say and protest.. Be it in art or something to that effect. But some might be too pissed off to go with the flow, and join the Hell's Angels or some shit, defiling everything society stands for. It's not that simple as saying they're living life as it unfolds.

    .. That said, joining a biker gang is not putting a type in the best light. I'll have to think about this.

    SPs aren't the careless bill and ted stereotypes they're often portrayed to be...I know a few who were pretty perceptive. They would make a psychic medium ashamed. Which is nearly impossible, because all psychic mediums are shameless con artists who thrive on the misery and vulnerability of the ignorant.

    also, dicks.
