    This is true. But reason unmoored from empiricism produces only fancy.

    It is evidence and reason which gives us facts.

    And mbti knows not critical thinking, and avoids cognitive dissonance like the plague.
    I already addressed your "plagiarism" charges earlier in this thread.

    As for the MBTI's claims to evidentiary respectability, just as a reminder — and in case anybody else is interested — I already did my best to educate you in that department in this post (responding to another post of yours that likened the MBTI to astrology).

    You have done your best to educate me. But I insist on thinking critically and casting cognitive dissonance like confetti wherever I go.
