    Understandable reason, but then why don't people just say that about the poll instead of getting so defensive. I don't even think the poll thing was mentioned up till your post here.

    Yeah I didn't think this would end up well.
    I like to rock n' roll all night and *part* of every day. I usually have errands... I can only rock from like 1-3.

    You don't need a poll to express yourself in a forum. I thought it would be fun to run a statistic on those willing to participate. If poll's aren't for you, simply ignore it.

    People will find any way to justify their hostility/venting by undermining others, especially online (where they can get away with it), to make better their own image. It wouldn't matter if it's on the subject of MBTI or stamp collecting. All the cool kids know who they are.

    thanks for putting words in my mouth. I said the poll sucked because i generally like polls but you did not make it so multi selection is possible which is very important in this scenerio.
    In no likes experiment.

    that is all

    i dunno what else to say so

It's been bugging me since... forever, and it would be great to get it off my chest. So what's your story?
    The more you disclose the more information the forum trolls have at their disposal.

    I dont know why anyone would have a problem identifying that way, it is supposedly what made Sherlock Holmes the master detective, it was also what Jung supposed was the superior cognitive set to iNtuition but on this forum and other forums it has a bad reputation, sort of the concrete thinker who loathes abstract thinking or abstraction, in the short hand, of the arch conservative or "think with the blood" fascist variety.

    In any case its just a term of rebuke or prejorative term on this forum.

    I'll take this with a grain of salt. As I'm not the first or will be the last person you'll accuse of doing this.

    sounds like when people go backwards to change what they mean so they don't have to admit they're wrong. it's fine i'm done arguing i have better stuff to do.
