I have only read snipets from this thread, so forgive me if this share is redundant. But I thought some contributors to this topic might enjoy this thread from PerC: personalitycafe.com/myers-briggs-forum/82742-please-help-me-take-bs-out-s-vs-n-dichotomy.html
I like the quotes they pulled from Jung (though the following discussion was mostly useless, as usual, though at least it was mostly inoffensive.)
Stalin had a bigger mustache than Hitler. They didn't like or understand each other. Therefore, they didn't understand each other because Stalin's mustache was bigger.
Is that kinda like when you place a naked lady in front of a man...he fails to understand anything she says? Makes sense...Hitler had a mustache festish...combination of jealousy and being turned on that caused the brain not to function right and his comprehension to plumit.
Take what I say with a grain of salt, because that's all it is compared to the ocean of complexity when it comes to actions and real life.
Every conversation I have ever had that was worth a shit, is because the other person was intelligent, or I found their antics amusing, they were funny and had an interesting character. I would take a conversation with an ESFP over an INTP any day.
*Exception, I have yet to enjoy a conversation with an ISTP, intelligent or not, internet or not.
