    Personally, I see N type people as the cause of most of the trouble on earth. If you look at all the social revolutions and almost any one that came up with a crazy ass new approach to living life that people believed in and died for, it was probaly an N type person.

    I will admit that some N types are probably more trouble maker prone than others, but still we are all good at creating dischord by trying to look at things differently than the norm which people are comfortable with.

    You don't even have to go as far back as hitler, just look at the 60's and 70's and all the crazy ass revolutionaries all across the globe. People were hijacking planes and blowing shit up like it was going out of style.

    Being on the borderline, I never was able to really fit in either with the really concrete normal sensing people or the airheaded intuitives. I would have been happy either way, I think.

    Around my intuitive friends, I fit in well. Around others, not so much, but a well-adjusted person can fit in with either crowd.

    I understand this.. But I also understand that there are a great many--far too many--whom believe themselves to be a part of this elite.

    Well, my mommy never loved me, and that is why I have chosen to topple you from your pedestal, darling.

    See, the view isn't so bad from down here.

    The whole point here is, the smarter we get, the easier it is to invent ways to inflict harm upon others.

    We have a choice here to continue to seek knowledge, or revert back to tribalism. The latter results in an imminent collapse of civilization. The former, just might, might not, depending on whether or not we will come up with ways to destroy ourselves and others and implement them.

    I do not think that intelligence makes us wicked directly. However, it tempts us to be wicked as it allows us to get our way at the expense of others with impunity. The way to counter this, we should not inspire all to revert back to our simple, animalistic (non-N) ways, but by becoming wise enough to stop those who think they can use their intelligence to take advantage of us. After all, the reason they can use their intelligence to inflict harm upon others with impunity is simply because most people around were not smart enough to figure out what they were up to.

    Yes, it is the Intuitives who have caused most harm in the world. However, they have also caused the most 'good' in the world. This is the case because major changes stem from great ideas. Non-Intuitives merely have carried out the task of implementing the ideas.

    On this note, it is not only manifestly desirable to further seek knowledge, but ought to also be obligatory of all of us capable of doing so. By shirking this obligation we leave an opening for ourselves and those around us to be taken advantage of.

    Supplemental material:

    It should be noted that from the standpoint of applied typology, Intuitor and Intuitive are different terms. An Intuitor is one who is unconsciously predisposed to rely more on the Intuitive faculty than the Sensing faculty. It does not mean that he uses Intuition well, as cultivation of this skills requires aposteriori practice. It is not innate and it is not acquired through pure contemplation.

    An Intuitive however, is one, be he Intuitor or not, who has the skills of using Intuition. Such people are indeed more likely to be intelligent and come up with ground-shaking ideas as Imagination, or ability to concoct abstract notions (Intuition) is indispensible for this task. Imagination is analogous to ideas as metal to a car.

    The first step to having an idea is having the material to work with. (Pure perception). Second, is critically analyzing the material and concocting a design.
