    While I do feel that there may be observable truths, I don't think that what we observe necessarily correlates to metaphysical truth

    Take psychology or sociology. Neither can necessarily be correlated to metaphysical truths.

    And anyways, IMO, both psych and sociology are pseudo-sciences since results rarely repeat, unlike physics.

    Ending arguments existentially by accident is fun
    Especially when it supports my argument.

    I suppose that makes emotions and differing tastes in music equally imaginary.

    Shall we play a game?

    Observe:

    Jag is a natural skeptic. He needs to be convinced, and needs to see the
    evidence, and your logic needs to be sound. Beyond reproach, even. This can
    be quite an undertaking, but once won over, Jag will be your staunchest
    ally. Jag is phenomenally analytical, meticulous, and painstaking. Jag loves
    the research process, is as relentless and tenacious as a bulldog and pretty
    much won't stop until he is damn good and ready.
    Is it true? 100%.

    However the Random Access Memory (RAM) became available in 1970 and so made categories redundant.

    But here we categorise ourselves using MBTI while we actually relate to one another with Random Access Memory.

    What will happen when we start thinking in terms of Random Access Memory?

    MBTI is imaginary because it was imagined. It's a model and just as a model of the solar system is not the solar system...like Korzybski's map, which is simply a useful approximation of the territory, MBTI is just a useful simplistic approximation of the human psychological preference.

    I'm pretty disappointed my earlier post wasn't cleverly re-adapted.

    I made it ripe for picking.
    Don't know how much it'll bend til it breaks.
