    Oh, I think that's debatable.

    Think, doesn't mean that it is.

    A very common misnomer about quantum mechanics (a term that is way to frequently hijacked) is that the observer means a person. There is no human element to quantum mechanics as many want there to be. It merely speaks to atomic and subatomic particles. Once you scale up beyond that, the laws that government no longer have an effect. Well, they do, but they are completely statistically insignificant on larger bodies. It's sort of difficult to understand/appreciate unless you have taken a course in it or have the math background to learn it, and it is very easy to wrongfully "humanize" since it is inheriently non-intuitive and complex.

    when I do make personal sacrifices, it is because I feel compelled to. there is no "should" when it comes to personal sacrifice

    And what if we really do know what's best for you?
    believing you know what's best for me isn't the problem. the problem is:
    1) you rarely ever do (I've met plenty of NFJs who claimed to understand Fi users...they've all missed the mark)
    2) that's not the point. even if they did know what was better for me, I'd rather they just make a suggestion. no one gets to act like my mother and obligate me to do what's best for me (even my real mother). NFJs in particular seem to lack a sense of what is/is not their business, which is a tendency I find very arrogant, disrespectful and, at times, controlling (albeit usually with a velvet glove)

    But why is Quantum Mechanics and Relativity non-intuitive.

    This is because we are exquisitely attuned to our size, while Quantum Mechanics is to the nth power small, and Relativity is to the nth power big.

    We intuitively understand things our own size, and anything outside our size is beyond our intuitive understanding.

    This might be useful for reference. It is Jung's description of Ni which has positive and negative implications.

    9. The Introverted Intuitive Type

    The peculiar nature of introverted intuition, when given the priority, also produces a peculiar type of man, viz. the mystical dreamer and seer on the one hand, or the fantastical crank and artist on the other. The latter might be regarded as the normal case, since there is a general tendency of this type to confine himself to the perceptive character of intuition. As a rule, the intuitive stops at perception; perception is his principal problem, and -- in the case of a productive artist-the shaping of perception. But the crank contents himself with the intuition by which he himself is shaped and determined. Intensification of intuition naturally often results in an extraordinary aloofness of the individual from tangible reality; he may even become a complete enigma to his own immediate circle. [p. 509]

    If an artist, he reveals extraordinary, remote things in his art, which in iridescent profusion embrace both the significant and the banal, the lovely and the grotesque, the whimsical and the sublime. If not an artist, he is frequently an unappreciated genius, a great man 'gone wrong', a sort of wise simpleton, a figure for 'psychological' novels.

    Although it is not altogether in the line of the introverted intuitive type to make of perception a moral problem, since a certain reinforcement of the rational functions is required for this, yet even a relatively slight differentiation of judgment would suffice to transfer intuitive perception from the purely æsthetic into the moral sphere. A variety of this type is thus produced which differs essentially from its æsthetic form, although none the less characteristic of the introverted intuitive. The moral problem comes into being when the intuitive tries to relate himself to his vision, when he is no longer satisfied with mere perception and its æsthetic shaping and estimation, but confronts the question: What does this mean for me and for the world? What emerges from this vision in the way of a duty or task, either for me or for the world? The pure intuitive who represses judgment or possesses it only under the spell of perception never meets this question fundamentally, since his only problem is the How of perception. He, therefore, finds the moral problem unintelligible, even absurd, and as far as possible forbids his thoughts to dwell upon the disconcerting vision. It is different with the morally orientated intuitive. He concerns himself with the meaning of his vision; he troubles less about its further æsthetic possibilities than about the possible moral effects which emerge from its intrinsic significance. His judgment allows him to discern, though often only darkly, that he, as a man and as a totality, is in some way inter-related with his vision, that [p. 510] it is something which cannot just be perceived but which also would fain become the life of the subject. Through this realization he feels bound to transform his vision into his own life. But, since he tends to rely exclusively upon his vision, his moral effort becomes one-sided; he makes himself and his life symbolic, adapted, it is true, to the inner and eternal meaning of events, but unadapted to the actual present-day reality. Therewith he also deprives himself of any influence upon it, because he remains unintelligible. His language is not that which is commonly spoken -- it becomes too subjective. His argument lacks convincing reason. He can only confess or pronounce. His is the 'voice of one crying in the wilderness'.

    The introverted intuitive's chief repression falls upon the sensation of the object. His unconscious is characterized by this fact. For we find in his unconscious a compensatory extraverted sensation function of an archaic character. The unconscious personality may, therefore, best be described as an extraverted sensation-type of a rather low and primitive order. Impulsiveness and unrestraint are the characters of this sensation, combined with an extraordinary dependence upon the sense impression. This latter quality is a compensation to the thin upper air of the conscious attitude, giving it a certain weight, so that complete 'sublimation' is prevented. But if, through a forced exaggeration of the conscious attitude, a complete subordination to the inner perception should develop, the unconscious becomes an opposition, giving rise to compulsive sensations whose excessive dependence upon the object is in frank conflict with the conscious attitude. The form of neurosis is a compulsion-neurosis, exhibiting symptoms that are partly hypochondriacal manifestations, partly hypersensibility of the sense organs and partly compulsive ties to definite persons or other objects. [p. 511]

    I know all types have their annoying traits, but I have yet to meet an INFJ I even dislike, let alone hate.

    There are some types I get along with better than others, but there is no type that I "hate," to do so would be to give MBTI a morally significant power that no theory should be granted, and to me, suggests that the "hater" is either very immature, still doesn't have a grasp on the typology theory, or both. Just my thoughts for whatever they're worth.


    I generally appreciate INFJs for their insight, warmth, and grace. Sometimes I am frustrated by INFJs who feel that they are doing a good thing by enforcing an idea which may or may not suit others as well as it suits them. But, on the whole, the INFJs I have met have been overwhelmingly kind-hearted and deeply considerate, with a humanistic and idealistic social awareness and future orientation that I especially appreciate.

    Besides, we are all flawed, and no good comes of hate.

    Sure, ok, but this is going off on a distracting tangent from what I and coriolis were saying.
