    You really believe Freud had no influence on the development of Western thought, which in turn impacted social policies and the direction of scientific study, etc?

    I guess some guy shoots someone else with a gun, that makes a fast and direct impact on the outer world. But it's not the only way to impact reality.



    LOL! Okay, I'll buy that one, it's pretty honest.

    Oh, I might make a motivational poster with that one.

    hurray me!


    Hmmmm.... no? I think the people that make up the whole evolved to where it was without study and policy making. the people made the policy, the policy didn't make the people.

    I'm probably the wrong person to talk to about it, i've always thought of psychology as a bunk subject even thought I KNOW how important it is. <--- its very difficult for me to write this sentence.


    its just... so... boring.

    In all honesty I was thinking the same thing.

    Lots of Enneatype Fives (generally introverts) had a great deal of influence in history, one way or the other: Einstein, Descartes, Newton, Nietzsche, Beauvoir, Sartre, Darwin, Ursula K. LeGuin, Milan Kundera, Stephen Hawking, Stanley Kubrick, Susan Sontag, T. S. Eliot...

    Also, "important to history" =/= "famous". Many contributors to scientific research don't get exactly popular outside their field, for starters.
    Tentative typing: ISFJ 6w5 or 9w1 (Sp/S[?]).

    @jontherobot there are a SHITLOAD of introvert military leaders too. Especially brilliant tacticians.
    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.

    So you really don't think the world would be any different without nuclear science, or understanding evolution, or insulin replacement, or cancer treatment?

    I'd be extremely surprised if many scientists weren't introverted. Not all, but many. And that's just the most obvious career.

    Also, weak trolling, bro.

To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft
