    I see a lot of myself in this. A definition of "good" in terms of greasiness, cheesiness, and other basic ratios would be necessary to determine whether or not I would like the pizza as well. It often frustrates me that people will violently refuse to give me information for no reason other than that I don't "need" it.

    It's okay for the most part, and I know it can't be helped, but it does get a little tiresome sometimes, having to derail the main point to define the details. That's probably the reason people do that to you.

    interesting and rather balanced thread concept...
    but every post having to be the whole 16 can make fun into drudgery, so instead:



    IxFx's:


    INFJ:

    FT - skilled and often insightful in creating sociological models and avoiding negative consequences to others around them on a daily basis.

    NSFT - terrible at seen themselves or acknowledging when they fail to do so, with consequentially escalating spirals & self-imposed ignorance.
    also (prediction incoming): will replace in their own NSFT any descriptions of flaws with a description of how hard it is to be them

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    INFP:

    FT - highly competent at reverse engineering experiences, stances, mental modes & situations that they've never had themselves.

    NSFT - extremely prone to over simplifications and often too impatient to follow deductive reasoning, to the impairment of overall competence.

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    ISFJ:

    FT - skilled storytellers of their own lives, they are able to see themselves against the long-arch of who they've being & tapping into a rich intellectual and often poetic folklore of potential meaning to derive.

    NSFT - often use the vague entertaining of notions outside of their ream to claim openness & excuse an inability to actually incorporate them.

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    ISFP:

    FT - a factual and unapologetic sense of awareness extending to themselves and all that they are able to account for around them.

    NSFT - in contrast to their self awareness, they are often unskilled yet personal in determining the intentions & motivations of others.

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Thank you. I try.

    And fair enough. It could turn into drudgery, so yeah...pick and choose...I think it's a good idea.

    Also, I liked reading your responses. I thought they were well-stated and honest.
