    Oh, Mal. You and your faulty assumptions.


    I was THE ONLY ONE I KNEW that wasn't enraptured with Avatar, and downright disliked it.

    I know for a fact that I have an obsession for raggedy ann bordering on the erotic.
    Now that I look back at the OP a few hours later, I think maybe I didn't make my question clear enough. INTJ has its rational and irrational side, that's a known fact about any type. The rational side(s) may be strongly developed, but the irrational side dominates. They can both be active at the same time. But at times the rational side relinquishes its focus, and then the Ni-dom mentally appears to go off into another realm.

    Books and movies, sometimes music, are attractive nuisances which distract the Ni-dom types. They may not see them as nuisances. But to me it's a nuisance, indirectly.

    That's good, but I'm not assuming anything about any particular person. I'm just referring to the suspension of disbelief. And how potent this ability must be when confronted with, let's say, as pathetic a movie as Avatar, or whatever one's favorite movie may be.

    So, perhaps a thread (there prolly is one) about what type is more able to suspend their disbelief. ? I seem to remember seeing that around here in the not-to-distant past...

    I'm pretty cynical myself. I doubt I could be hypnotized, for example. And I do not buy into conspiracy theories....unless confronted with evidence to the contrary.

    No I understand that.

    I don't even consider this an ability that needs to be willed into action, the dominant function kicks into action all the time. I'm talking about how easy it is for the Ni-dom to get sucked into an alternate reality, just as a matter of course, if the object of attention is attractive enough. The "Avatar" movie and the "Avatar withdrawal" phenomenon provide an excellent example of this.

    I don't know what that has to do with conspiracy theories.

    Yeah but it dings a bit more.

    This from the guy who debated an estp for 20 pages on the type of yoda! Lol
    For all that we have done, as a civilization, as individuals, the universe is not stable, and nor is any single thing within it. Stars consume themselves, the universe itself rushes apart, and we ourselves are composed of matter in constant flux. Colonies of cells in temporary alliance, replicating and decaying and housed within, an incandescent cloud of electrical impulses. This is reality, this is self knowledge, and the perception of it will, of course, make you dizzy.
