    As much as I think it's a waste of time to continue to talk to someone who needs scientific evidence for something as obvious as the fact that we don't all think the same way, I heard somewhere Nardi recently uncovered that people of the same type have much more brain activity in common than people of different types.

    Lots of comments in this thread that I don't agree with.

    MBTI and cog functions are constructs. They aren't things that can be touched. It's like intelligence or creativity. We categorize certain behaviors a certain way. The behaviors exist. The classification is constructed. Now, think about your question. Can you "prove" that it exists? How would you go about proving that creativity exists?

    To finally be able to agree with someone is a pleasure in this case. I may fall off my chair, Edahn.
    Cheers, man.

    Intelligence is physically expressed in reality, as is creativity.

    how about statistics? mbti has been verified on a wide number of people. you do know that science is based on observation and statistic validity, right? MBTI has both. science is not a synonym for truth, by the way. the only "strict" science is maths, all the rest has a margin of error and uncertainty, which can be estimated statistically, same as MBTI.

    Typology is too vague to be tested scientifically. This is why no one can come to consensus about historical figures or celebrities, or even how to describe the functions. There is no way around this. It's more akin to astrology.

    This is the part of Edahn's post I was specifically agreeing with, which is why I quoted it the way I did:

    But since I'm here, can you touch intelligence? What's it feel like, Jon?
    Is it rough or sticky?

    did you actually read what i said? i said MBTI has been tested using large samples of people (ie statistically). it's not up for discussion, it's a fact.

    What is the value of parsing data that has no verifiable basis?
