    I don't see "nebula" anywhere in there.

    Again, look for the root: fin.
    Like at the end of an old italian film.
    Like found in Finished

    It's like... we're multiplying...

    And Nocap, if type is a joke, that still doesn't explain why you have INTJ as your type code.

    Yes, there are smart Sensors, but they're usually in the fields of economics or something practical. N's still have the monopoly on useless theories that can't be related back to reality.

    So, I don't think people are overestimating the number of Ns here.

    Intelligence is much more desirable than Intuition, though, if you have to pick.

    Ok but what about this?
    Stipulative definition - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


    "A stipulative definition is a type of definition in which a new or currently-existing term is given a new meaning for the purposes of argument or discussion in a given context. When the term already exists, this new definition may, but does not necessarily, contradict the dictionary (lexical) definition of the term. Because of this, a stipulative definition cannot be "correct" or "incorrect"; it can only differ from other definitions, but it can be useful for its intended purpose."

    I like the i and the J. But you are right, to become an iNTp is more fun.

    Then you can say "Hey there, I P" xDD

    ok this one was flat xD.

    I like those discussions about intelligence, wisdom and what else. But in the end I can not buy me anything from knowing that I am intelligent.

    Furthermore, I like discussions about logic, but I dont like the philosopher's tone.

    "Most important. Without logic you cannot give structure to your judgments or clearly see what your judgments are about. What could be more important?"

    You can without any problem give structure to a judgement without logic, by just doing it. that is what good dictators are made of.

    The tone; I dont like it, it is an invitation to narrow-mindedness in my opinion.

    ----

    And something more, in the beginning of the thread, I guess nocap said something BlueWing did not understand. That I wanted to correct.

    It is "If A means B does that not mean not B means not A" That means, if A = B , does that not mean - A = - B and that is absolutly correct.

    Evolves arround mathematical logic though

    You didn't prove me wrong, you just used an adjective.

    An oxymoron I might add --



    However I do recognize the existence of situations where the oxymoron is applicable.

    Anyway, we're not arguing over the existence of variable definitions. The prevalent issue here is, do the concepts offered by the word intelligence apply to those categories Gabe mention -- the multiple 'intelligences'?

    And that's not even truly the real argument here. It's just some side bullshit Gabe vomited -- something I've always wanted to address but never really bothered to.
