    I wonder how other posters on this board might feel if all of their points were subjected to the same psychologization (i.e. "You don't really mean what you write - you're just hurt/angry/deluded") and ad hominem slurs.

    You are currently in an intense Ti struggle, trying to make sense of why this ESFJ/P has injured your feelings. Through reading your posts it isn't tough to notice that you are an intellectual person, however, intelligence does not guarantee that your rationalization is correct. Your Ti function is incredibly strained at the moment and is allowing your Ne function to go wild. Being under stress, your Ti function isn't able to analyze the information being handed to it from Ne in a rational manner and you are becoming increasingly radical and irrational in your last few threads. In other words, you are overthinking so much that you are accepting ideas that you come up with through your Intuition that would normally be dismissed using the Sensing function (which allows you to actually observe the world around you correctly instead of just theorizing.) To relieve Ti stress you have actually allowed yourself to believe that you are a superior organism to that of which has hurt you. Your post is subconsiously trying to alleviate your pain by basically saying "Its okay, I'm a more evolved human being that him/her". Subconsiously you are trying to make sense of your pain by any means necessary and coming to rather deluded conclusions in doing so.



    As Randomnity noted, your post is very similar to the reaction of White supremists regarding Evolution. They believed that people of the Caucasian race were superiorly evolved compared to all other races which (to them) explained why they had come to dominate the world. In reality, Guns, Germs, and Steel more accurately describes how it happened.



    If you understood Evolution correctly, you would understand that Typology, which in and of itself is a pseudoscience only capable of broadly defining the complexity of human beings, has no correlation with Evolution/Natural Selection whatsoever.



    Intelligence itself cannot be very well defined, and in your post you are basically giving yourself an Epeen enlargement by posting which types you believe are more "highly evolved" according to "intelligence", and of course listing INTP as the "most evolved". Taking this Evolution cant into account Bluewing, INTPs aren't very well adapted to our environment are we? I'd say that ESTJ is the most well adapted to modern society and therefore the "most intelligent", wouldn't that make more sense in Evolutionary terms? "Intelligence" only has meaning when it can be applied in a manner that benefits the survival of the organism, not good news for us lazy, unmotivated "thinkers" whose "intellectual ideas" very often have little basis on reality and no practical purpose in terms of increasing our standard of living or ability to survive. Also, as INTPs we only make up a small portion of the population and aren't growing in numbers. The types with the largest percentage of the population could be said to be more 'evolved' than the smaller percentages, correct? (this is all assuming that "types" are genetically inhereted and therefore a type which makes up a larger portion of the population is reproducing more). Unless we find some groundbreaking information that indicates that INTPs are growing in number due to our superior survival ability and highly developed intelligence, then we have no reason to believe that we are superior. If the latter was correct, than wouldn't you assume that us INTP's would outgrow the Human race and become our own superior species? See how rediculous these assertions are? As human beings we currently are of too large of a population to Evolve any further (until our carrying capacity is reached). The potential beneficial mutations and genetic differences between us are flattened out by our population being so large (interbreeding these benefits without an isolated environment does not efficiently 'naturally select'). Unbeneficial mutations are being passed around more often than the beneficial ones but the people who have these bad mutations are usually kept alive via modern medicine and allowed to live a full and prosperous life and reproduce, potentially passing the malicious trait onto further generations. I for one am colorblind and have 20-80 vision, but I'm INTP, am I more evolved? Only once Population is severly decreased or Carrying Capacity reached while maintaining a large variety of genetic differences/mutations will we know which human beings are more adapted to their current environements than others, then we'll see some humans evolving into different beings compared to other humans according to environment. /end rant




    I'd like to see a response to my psychoanalysis of your behavior lately and of my refutation of INTP superiority.

    In case of neuroris of all kinds, the dominant function takes over the psyche. In a normal INTP behavior, Ne,Si,Fe have little say, in neurotic even less. A better way to explain such phenomenon would be to state that since all functions are slave to Ti, Ne and Si focus on collecting information that is relevant to Ti focus. This does not lead to faulty reasoning, perhaps to establishment of undesirable premises as large chunks of information may be overlooked.

    Si generally tends not to have the authority to dismiss Ne input.

    To be superior in intellect does not mean to be more evolved in all aspects or most prepared for survival on earth. You've missed the whole point. The argument was that since recently more and more the environment has been becoming conducive to reflection, we have gone on from being hyperactive ( mostly ESFJ) to having a good chunk of our population (3&#37 as INTPs.

    IN types (most reflective) tend to be low in population, as most tasks we still need to do require hands on application (ES). However, in a 1000 years when we have machines do all the menial work, the environment will be even more conducive to reflection and in that case the rests of the ESs will evolve into INs, especially INTPs.

    You could have noticed the stressed state of mind( had there been one) from the underlying emotional ambience of the posts, yet this is not at all relevant to the integrity of the arguments made, which you have misunderstood thoroughly. I am not here to talk about my personal, only about ideas that are posted, don't read between the lines and whilst you're at it practice developing your Ne and especially Si. This is crucial to collecting information properly. Once you do that, you should have less problems misreading what is written and reading in what isn't written. A good sensing function will give you a firm grasp on what is, what you've seen with your senses. A good intuitive function shall let you have a clear abstract vision of the abstract material in question which you happen to be sorely lacking, as it appears to be that what you've put forth was an honest attempt to understand what was written, as the seriousness of your post seems to show that you did not purposefully misconstrue what was said in an attempt to caricature. But perhaps you cant help it, perhaps you do have good Ne as many INTPs do, especially the older ones (we tend to have good control of our auxiliary function), yet it simply doesnt help you because your visual impairment precludes you from collecting the proper concrete information in order to erect a vision, no matter how much of an intuitive capability you have.

    I am all ears for your response, please enlighten me my dear sir!

    End rant/

    Heh, here is a prophecy that will not be fulfilled. As technology has advanced people have become more busy rather than less. I wouldn't count on getting more quiet time during the next 1000 years.

    BW: Newsflash: Your THEORY is NOT REALITY !!

    Folks: We need to be careful regarding the full implications of any and all theories we are putting out there for public consumption, most unfortunately, the public at large does not easily differentiate between theory and reality.

    From wikipedia:

    In common usage, the word theory is often used to signify a conjecture, an opinion, a speculation, or a hypothesis. In this usage, a theory is not necessarily based on facts; in other words, it is not required to be consistent with true descriptions of reality.

    True descriptions of reality are more reflectively understood as statements which would be true independently of what people think about them.

    A theory that does not reflect reality is fiction. No need to even call it theory.

    You need to make some arguments for how this theory is fiction.

    As of right now you're saying "FHOISDHOIFSOHIFSDOIHSDFSOHIDFOIDSHSFDOHIFSDOIHFSD OHIFDSOHIFSDOHISFDOIHSFDOHIFSDOHIFSDOHIFSDOHIFDSIO HFDSOHIFDSIOHFSDOHIFDSIOHFDSOHIFDSOHIFSDOHIFDSOIHS FDOHIFSDOHIFSDIOHFSDOIHSFIDOHOFIDSHSFDIOHSFDOHISFD OIHOSFIDHIOHSFDOIHFSDOIFSHD"

    and 'WAAHHHHHH..BOOO THREAD'.

    So the IN Morlocks are keeping the ES Eloi around because they need them. Once the Eloi have been replaced by machines the Morlocks will allow them to evolve into Morlocks?

    I don't think you quite understand how evolution works.

    Evolution isn't going anywhere, it doesn't have a plan and with all our technology humans aren't subject to environmental pressure which is how natural selection works. Producing the most offspring who are best suited to their environment and able to produce even more offspring.

    Being "reflective" has no advantage in the mating game. No one even knows if personality is genetic anyway.

    In the mechanized world of the future where machines and AIs do everything INs won't have the advantage. No one will have an advantage because everyone has been replaced by machines. So the only thing left for people to do is have fun.

    The ESs will spend their time socializing, having hot drunken sex and making babies which is what you need to do in order to evolve. The INs will be in their rooms plugged into the matrix reflecting with their virtual girlfriends, further removing themselves from the gene pool.

    The ESs will still have the advantage in mating and breeding so the only way to turn the majority of the population to IN is to kill all the non INs. But that's not evolution. That's eugenics.

    Ah, right. I suppose the ESTJs and ESFJs will be doing it while sober, married, in the dark, missionary on their anniversary for five minutes.
