    How do these proverbs and adages connect to types in your mind? As in, what's the archetype that would support a given proverb?

    What you don't know can't hurt you.
    Better to Remain Silent and Be Thought a Fool than to Speak and Remove All Doubt
    Practice makes perfect.
    The clothes make the man.
    Measure twice, cut once.
    A prophet is not recognized in his own land
    Don't count your chickens before they're hatched.

    All I know is, I've said "Don't judge a book by its cover" so many times in my life, I've lost count.

    see, that doesn't make any sense with what i said before. by your standards, i don't identify with all the functions i should have and instead identify with functions i dont have. i think this theory doesnt work.


    .....how is measure twice cut once Ne???

    Most of these are pretty good (particularly Si) - minus Se/Ne, which I can blame the OP or the style of the lesson for, perhaps.

    Or maybe I should get over the fact that Jung equates Se to having keen sense of style, and that's pretty much anything anyone is able to latch on to.

    Process of elimination. It was one of the last functions on my list.

    What you don't know can't hurt you.
    Wait, does this mean that the unknown is nothing to be afraid of, or that there is comfort and safety in ignorance?

    Because while the first explanations seems compatible with Ne or Ti, the second, which was my initial reading of it, does not.
    [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....

    This proverb usually equates to "ignorance is bliss". I associate that with the SP types - live in the moment without regard to consequences - but not with a specific function.

    Some of my favorites are:

    A stitch in time saves nine.
    A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush.
    A chain is only as strong as its weakest link.
    The best defense is a good offense.
    Don't cut off your nose to spite your face.
    Give a man a fish, he eats for a day. Teach him to fish, he eats for life.
    Fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice, shame on me.
    Hope for the best, but prepare for the worst.

    Some I dislike are:

    Slow and steady wins the race.
    If it's not broken, don't fix it.
    You can't have your cake and eat it, too. (How can you eat a cake you don't have??)
    Better the devil you know than the one you don't.
    Look on the sunny side of life.
    I've been called a criminal, a terrorist, and a threat to the known universe. But everything you were told is a lie. The truth is, they've taken our freedom, our home, and our future. The time has come for all humanity to take a stand...
