    Astrology types today are not the same ones as when they were made lol, the stars have shifted since then.

    How the fucking hell is anyone fooled by astrology anymore?

    I don't even care about the possible validity of the 'theory' if it could be so called.

    I'm just flabbergasted by the fact that no one notices how goddamned generic every fucking horoscope is.

    Confirmation bias like Ivy said sure, but there's more to it than that. It's not just about noticing whichever details apply to you, and forgetting/skipping over the ones that don't -- All horoscopes apply to all people. It's impossible for them to get them wrong. They say things as universal as "The sky looks blue to everyone with normal ocular orbs" or "Most people have a noses"

    And I know what you're thinking: [i]"BUT NOCAP! EVERYONE NOZE I HAVE A NOZE THAT'S OBVIOUS. ASTROGOLY HAS SOMETHING TO IT! THEY NOTICED THAT I SOMETIMES AM NICE TO PEOPLE, BUT I SOMETIMES AM NOT. THEY ALSO KNEW THAT SOMETIMES I DON'T TALK TO PEOPLE AT ALL!"

    Well aren't they brilliant? They happened to notice every contingency and said it applies to you. Holy goddamn hell. How can they be wrong?

    It's the same as this religious doo-hicky those church guys came up with: "God will answer all prayers with, yes, no, and wait" How can they be wrong?

    Let's say it happens right away, and you got what you wanted: SOUND ALL BELLS AND ALARMS!! GOD HATH GIVETH!!
    Let's say it doesn't happen ever: Well, I guess god said no.

    But wait, a few months later, you get what you wanted: SOUND ALL BELLS AND WISTLES!! GOD HATH FINALLY GIVETH NOW THAT I WAITED!!

    Don't be fooled by this idiotry. This is how Las Vegas steals peoples' money.

    Oddly, a lot of people attack systems such as the MBTI and the Enneagram by saying that they are "no different from astrology". These people apparently don't understand the difference between description and perscription. Well, clearly that's only one thing they don't understand. Never the less, I guess they see that people are assigned types, and immediately conlude that it's like astrology.

    Agree that most people are idiots.

    MBTI is like astrology though.
    You mean to say typology isn't. Cognitive function analysis isn't the same as MBTI.

    Enneagram skirts the line, but is still based on empiricism and is mostly fluid ergo doesn't quite count.

    I speculate a lot of people like to avoid any kind of categorization out of sheer laziness. They don't have time to figure it all out, and settle their psychology by writing it off as bullshit.

    Cancer describes me pretty well, actually. I don't know that I really believe in it, but...It's a bit uncanny.

    No qualified astronomers, absolutely none, believe in astrology.

    Aries sounds like the opposite of myself.
