Ti - "It is funny and might be an interpretation of the myth into modern cosmology we can use today, but the thing about “advance civilization, more advance than ours' today” are at best silly and a little insulting to our ancestors, who did amazing things with the technology available to them. Notice that the map is manipulated. The ridges at the west coast of Greenland are very small and not active anymore and in the pacific there is no ridge along the Californian coast and along Aleutian Islands. If they decided to take island arcs at destructive plate boundaries, then there are plenty of more places that need to be included in the serpent.
...sure maybe it's funny for a joke (I did laugh a bit ) but I just find it horrible that someone would actually believe such a thing. (No I can't even say that surely no one is that stupid because I see lots of people believing in esoteric crap that's no more plausible than this joke here)
The part about "insulting to our ancestors", isn't that more Fe reasoning than Ti? Oh well I know there's supposedly this Ti/Fe dynamics though I myself have trouble seeing it about myself
In reality, Ni-dom and Ti-dom debating a concrete topic look very, very different.
Ni-dom makes a bizarre claim.
Ti-dom knocks it down logically.
Ni-dom doesn't see his or her claim as "bizarre," but sees logic as a less important than 'reality.'
Ti-dom gets annoyed and starts badgering Ni-dom.
Not at my house.
“There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.” ~ John Rogers
Ancestor worship forms part of Asian culture (example, in Shintoism).
Your point is invalid anyway as it removed the context of the comment - ..."who did amazing things with the technology available to them."
That's what I meant by the Ti/Fe dynamics, there's some T reasoning to support the F statement
And when I said I don't see it in myself, I meant I don't usually like to do this sort of thing. If I actually make a statement like this, supported by T reasoning, I feel somewhat uncomfortable, though the more reasoning is included, the less uncomfortable, sure.
