    i have yet to find an advantage to appearing intelligent besides being favored in the occasional social setting, and even that is both easy and sometimes detrimental if people feel that they cant relate. in other words, i dont see a reason to communicate intelligence to others so generally


    with that said, s's rule, n's drool, hell yeah brothas

    Okay, one thing to say.

    Type threads are in any way scientific?!

    Exactly, all these threads distract from the important question:

    Which type would you most rather rescue you from a fire and then have sex with?
    Why do we always come here?

    I guess we'll never know.

    Bluewing is wrong.

    If intelligence is defined in non type-discriminatory terms (in other words, valueing multiple intelligences)(any other definition of intelligence is biased bullshit), no type is "smarter" than any other type.

    Your 'brain teaser' is idiotic and completely meaningless, since it still refers to a conventional definition of intelligence- you are preaching about asking new and better questions while you reassert the same old formulaic crap.
    I didn't invite you to this thread.

    I don't know, it some kind of regulation with fire services, don't ask me to explain it, bureaucratic nonsense in my opinion.

    Agree.

    What dissapoints me is how those threads just as much as the BW threads continue to enforce misconceptions about type.
    BW's threads are an embarrassment. His ultimate assertion -- that F is not a rational faculty is not incorrect. He deliberately handles it in the most indirect, but forcefully insulting, manner he can find. Progress is, as would be expected, impossible under those circumstances.

    Like I said before, I have no agenda for defending Bluewing.

    Yeah, but what I've pointed out repeatedly is that every definition of rationality I find comes back, sooner or later, to a definition that matches Judgement in general, not specifically Thinking. So I never really know what definition of rationality it is that you are citing.

    (Having multiple intelligences means having multiple biases)(Everything is a bias... get over it)


    no type is "smarter" than any other type.
    No... body smart is a joke. Athletic is the proper term. Or perhaps flexible.. or whatever you prefer. There's intelligent, and athletic, and socialite, and artistic...
    Being people smart is a farce. All those other 'intelligences' have their own words of praise. Let the intellectuals keep what's rightfully theirs.

    Tell me Gabe, what do you know of etymology?

    The root of the word intelligence, is intel which fits in with intellect.

    If we stretch the word too far, we may as well not have it, and then how do we describe intelligence? I'm asking about what it actually means... not what these new-age euphemist morons impose.

    If you have an alternative, I suggest we call up Webster and the gang and change around the dictionaries. Let's go knock heads.

    Really? That sounds impossible, since one of the inherent components of rationality is logic. Logic is only a frequenter of judgement. Judgement being decision making, still allowing for F and T.
