    But, I dont think its a correct test for cynisism (dunno how you spell that). Things like 'You expect your government to lie' damn right! that's not cynical, its just common sense. Cynical is a negative word slapped on people who are not idiots.

    To be honest I prefer my government to lie. Who cares what I think, I'm just a peon. Just take care of business. As long as the reason you're lying is a good one. But I also think they're inept...

    But yeah, kind of a novelty test.

    What?? There's never a good reason to lie. Especially if your leading a group of people that have invested trust in you. I for one don't like being peed on but whatever floats your boat pal

    I'm of the opinion that most people are idiots, hence how would they know how to deal with a complex situation, and how would they know what is best for a complex system like a country. You have to hope the best guy is the best deceiver of the public. Our system here in America is designed to elect the best at lying and gaining popular support, which seems to indicate that the most popular opinion is the correct one, which is often not the case. Our decisions are made by politicians, who aren't politicians by trade, but doctors, basketball players, money managers, etc. Not countrymen. It's a terrible system.

    Some irony for you: I was looking at the Live New Posts thing and first read:

    "I think singular statements can't really be used as indicative of type. This particular statement could be used along with a number of OTHER statements to suggest a particular pattern of..." under the "Would an INTP say this" thread.

    Then I looked down and saw this:

    "I'm of the opinion that most people are idiots..." and thought "That HAS to be an INTP..."

    Clicked over and sure enough





    Just wanted to share that little tidbit. Carry on.


    Edit: Maybe this should have gone in the other thread...
    Embrace the possibilities.

    You're a full blown cynic... and probably even skeptical of these results. You have your optimistic moments, but most likely, you keep them to yourself.

    Generally you give people the benefit of the doubt. But there are exceptions.
    You buy into many of the things that mainstream society believes, but you're not anybody's fool.


    Eh.

    Generally speaking, I think cynicism is just parroting easy pessimism.

    Yes it is. They should organise it so we get the righteous, most spiritually and morally advanced individuals in those seats of power not fat, corrupt, greedy idiots. I don't care what they know, they only know the most about things that in the grander scheme of life itself are completeley and utterly irrelevent and wrong.

    You Are 56% Cynical

    Yes, you are cynical, but more than anything, you're a realist.
    You see what's screwed up in the world, but you also take time to remember what's right.
    Rule #1: Driver picks the music. Shotgun shuts his cakehole.

    Again, Demons I get, but people are just crazy.

    ESTP? o.O
