    If split into the Keirsey temperements:

    SPs would win any physical competition

    SJs would win in getting creating the most rules and regulations

    NFs would possibly win a passionate argument or two

    NTs would win in killing everyone else on the island
    Why do we always come here?

    I guess we'll never know.

    It's like a kind of torture,
    To have to watch this show.

    ^ :rolli:

    How 'bout.. NFs would possibly win by passionately killing everyone else after an argument or two five? Cuz you know, we'd try to talk and talk things through, and then talk some more...and out of love, it's bai bai other temperaments! and possibly bai bai ourselves after a time..

    And we might feel bad once it sets in how oh so mean we were to do it, and then we can all make ourselves feel better with crying and group hugs so that within a week we collectively get over it.

    z.z I'd have already been over it. I'd probably have set it up...

    nightning, oh so sorry hon...

    Hmmm this reminds me of a random half-baked, half-wacko theory/idea I had a while back.

    In prehistoric times...
    The tribe needs SJs to keep things running...
    The tribe needs NTs to invent new tools...
    The tribe needs SPs to tackle dangers in the wild...
    The tribe needs NFs for? day dreaming? <- pretty useless bunch huh?

    Assuming temperaments are real...
    Assuming temperaments manifest themselves in personality traits
    Assuming personality traits are heritable...
    Assuming heritable traits are due to gene expression...

    There would be different genes for I vs E, S vs N, F vs T, J vs P...

    So according to the above rationals...
    Combination of S + J is useful
    Combination of N + T is useful
    Combination of S + P is useful...

    But genes are mixed together due to random chance!
    Therefore NFs must be the product of bad gene combinations.

    On a more positive note...
    I do believe NFs serve as social glue...
    NFs acts as interpreter and translators for N/S and T/F interactions.
    Which means NFs are the most useful in large/complex group interactions.
    In a case of a small party of 4... There are other better types to have around than us.

    It's true! Just look at all the responses! The only NFs selected are posters who are NFs.

    I don't know but I definitely think NFs can be incredibly useful.

    I think we are just as innovative as NTs when it comes to seeing new ways of using and utilizing things. I don't know about other NFs but I am, and have always been a great problem solver. Being an NF, I am and have been consistently adept at noticing patterns, flagging pertinent information as being potentially "useful", and capable of *feeling* my way through novel or complex situations.

    We are more than day dreaming people persons, gosh darn it!!!

    You could almost say NT's innovate technology and science and NF's innovate society. Thats all a generalization, but you get the point.

    Liked I said... it was just a crazy idea. Not to be taken too seriously.

    We are more than day dreaming people persons in that we adapt well to most other types and situations. We're just not specialist in any particular area.

    If you change the scenario to a pair being thrown into a competition where you have to complete a bunch of varied tasks, then I believe an NF will be selected more often than other temperaments due to our versatility. But for teams of 4... nope! NFs aren't needed.

    ahahaha nightning! Not true. Those who wanted someone to love/to love them would likely pick an NF. So if you'd change your question to be, "who'd you most want to stay on the deserted island with", you'd probably see more NFs there, and less of other types.

    Which begets the question, is love necessary for survival.

    . NFs are the best equipped to understand macro cosmic relationships and patterns found within and amongst life. We are natural born ecologists and ethologists.
