    Default Fantasy and Damaged Psyches

    Mbti is based on fantasy and so naturally attracts damaged psyches.

    The damaged psyche typically presents a false self to the world.

    And so naturally we find that many present false selves on Central.

    And interestingly it is considered bad manners to draw attention to, or to expose, a false self on Central.

    By contrast a well run encounter group will not tolerate a false self, and insists that we try to integrate our psyche.

    So mbti panders to damaged psyches.

    Are you implying we're all damaged goods?

    ...Yeah, I won't argue with you there.

    Your constant attempts to convert the masses, however, seem to be an exercise in futility.

    Liars, whether weak or strong in psyche, present false faces day by day as a stepping stone to power.


    Some people, being damaged in psyche, are disillusioned with the lying world around them, and cast aside the facades of others as fakes, showing only their true faces.


    Others, though not damaged in psyche, show their true faces out of idealistic honesty, or simply out of disposition.


    The psychopathic, damaged in psyche, have no face to show but a false one, which they flaunt day by day in inordinate proportions to overindulge on all the power they can suck down their gullets.

    The topic of fantasy and its role in the psyche is interesting. Some more questions:

    How can fantasy, especially imagined selves, be healthy? If they can be.

    How can they hurt a person?

    How much fantasy is excessive, and what does overdoing fantasy indicate in a person?

    What does it mean if a person uses fantasy much less than normal?

    Oh look, Mole is calling everyone on this forum shitty undeveloped peons, and he's clearly superior to all of us! How cute.

    I think you are actually making a great point about false selves on forums.

    I am keeping my head above the waves of a choppy and confused sea, sometimes a wave catches me in the mouth and I choke, but I spit it out, take a deep breath, and take up arms against a sea of troubles, and by opposing end them. Grey/green eyes as level as a foot rule, with wrinkles at the corners—the product of humour and of twenty years' staring at a thousand horizons and the cruel sea.

    Oh he knows it's futile, he doesn't care. He revels in stirring the pot and ticking people off.
