    Humor?
    "We grow up thinking that beliefs are something to be proud of, but they're really nothing but opinions one refuses to reconsider. Beliefs are easy. The stronger your beliefs are, the less open you are to growth and wisdom, because "strength of belief" is only the intensity with which you resist questioning yourself. As soon as you are proud of a belief, as soon as you think it adds something to who you are, then you've made it a part of your ego."

    Ti is the 666

    I am still waiting for an inspiration concerning the usefulness of Ti, but it did not come yet. Most of my views I have about it are confirmation biased and therefore not helping

    No, entropie, stop self-deprecating. You're totally on the right track. It's Lateralus that has no idea what he's talking about.

    (Too bad, since Lateralus is the best album ever.)

    Always so serious.

    Should l start putting /sarcasm /facetious tags around my posts so certain uptight people can tell I'm not being serious?

    ^This is what everyone does when they're wrong.

    It's easy to pretend you're joking when there are no facial expressions or tone of voice involved.

    Hah, I'm only serious in one section of this forum, the political section (and even then, I'm goofing around half the time). Everywhere else, 90% of what I post is BS, kidding around. Like this thread, messing with the INTPs who metaphorically cuddle their Ti function like it's a child. I normally just ignore it when people misunderstand me (which happens more often than not), but you're particularly annoying sometimes.

    Also it's easy to pretend you're serious when you're not funny.

    Add: Not directed at anyone; just a funny thing to say, amirite?

    You're a Te elitist, some of them are Ti elitists. My posts have been about the pros and cons of each. Whether you like it or not, at least people aren't getting shitty information when they read my posts.

    Misapplication of MBTI pisses me off, because it leads to stereotyping people, which has somehow become viewed as socially acceptable on this site, but is not okay, at all. But a lot of people come here and read this bullshit like it's good information. Since I happen to be one of the very few people on this site that actually understands MBTI, I feel it's my obligation to cut through the shit for them.

    Yeah, yeah, I'm taking this too seriously. It's a big joke, ha ha.

    Why don't you learn about the system before making jokes, then? It just makes you look like an idiot. At least Nocap understands what he's talking about when he's talking shit.

    Also, I don't believe you that you're joking 90% of the time. Sounds like a defense strategy so that you can say whatever you want and fall back on that.

    I detect furious envy.
