    Then you'd know.
    Hmm...alright, then! It's worth a shot.

    But I'm not studying anymore. I have already graduated. ...So I'll have to see...

    Don't do it Carolyn, don't do it!

    First you ring the Psych Dept and lose your faith in MBTI.

    Then you ring the Astronomy Dept and lose your faith in Astrology.

    What next?

    You will be ringing the Zoology Department and asking about Evolution. And then you will lose your faith in God.

    And you will blame me.

    Hey Carolyn! It's never too late to study. I've graduated too but have thought of going back to university to study some pshychology!

    It looks like Northern Europe is on line.

    Perhaps both of you should have coffee with me tomorrow at the Bakery.

    White with one sugar?

    aren't INFJs rarest?
    Is it that by its indefiniteness it shadows forth the heartless voids and immensities of the universe, and thus stabs us from behind with the thought of annihilation, when beholding the white depths of the milky way?

    This would seem to suggest that type is not based just on culture. If it was then you wouldn't have any Ni types at all in western culture. So maybe culture is an influence, but not the only one.

    The whole nature v. enironment is facinating to me from a personal level. My parents were not N, the envirnonment does not support it, so how did I wind up N?

    Also as stated in another thread, Myers-Briggs raises questions as to whether many are born with a clean slate thus not predispositioned to a certain type. As a result she questions whether the western culture may be the basis of so many preferring ESJ.
