    Yeah, that's not Ne or Ti. Just because INTPs sometimes close themselves off from the world and reject everything that doesn't conform to whatever theory just means that they are being blinded. They still believe finding the objective truth is important, even if they may not like it. It's just their opinion on what's objective is skewed, and they can't see that they aren't being objective.

    Fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice, shame on me.
    Hope for the best, but prepare for the worst.
    These are all excellent.

    Here are some that I hate:

    "A positive outlook creates a positive situation." (Fi?)
    "Love is the answer." (Fi again?)
    "Live life to the fullest." (Se)
    "Live each day as though it were your last." (so, I should expect to be torn about by rabid circus clowns like when I dream about my own death every night?) (Se)
    "You only live once." (Si)

    And one I've generally found to be true, and I attempt to use in my dealing with others:

    "You catch more flies with honey than with vinegar." That's actually true. Turns out, being nice helps people listen to you. Not always, but usually more than the alternative. (This is pretty Fe, I suppose)
    [Trump's] rhetoric is not an abuse of power. In the same way that it's also not against the law to do a backflip off of the roof of your house onto your concrete driveway. It's just mind-numbingly stupid and, to say the least, counterproductive. - Bush did 9-11


    This is not going to go the way you think....

    Don't judge a book by its cover. (I actually tell this to people with regard to myself fairly often, and I sometimes have to remind myself)
    What you don't know can't hurt you. (Te doms)
    Better to Remain Silent and Be Thought a Fool than to Speak and Remove All Doubt (This sounds E3. I remove all doubt from everyones' minds at all times. LOL)
    Practice makes perfect. (Non Se doms trying to be more like Se doms, XD)
    The clothes make the man. (This goes along with perception is reality. another bullshit Te/Fi statement statement)
    Measure twice, cut once. (applies to anyone other than E3 and E7 haha)
    A prophet is not recognized in his own land (I don't even know what that means)
    Don't count your chickens before they're hatched. (I often find Te and Fe doms reminding me of this one, probably because they're rather in the moment with their observations)

    "Don't throw the baby out with the bathwater."

    In other words, don't dismiss everything associated with something you like dislike solely on the basis of that association.

    I love it. Also, it suggests black humor, which is another positive.
