    Victor - you seem to be on a mission here.
    I wouldn't take people on MBTItyping so seriously.
    It's just a way to figure out the world and other people.
    I'm sure people aren't so MBTIish in the real world.

    With regard to viewing the use of mbti as immoral-
    I'm going to disagree. I see your points of view, however, I would think that it would be more a matter of ethics(consequential), than of morals(although it could be this as well, subjective though, if you will[I recognize this is flawed<simply it is that
    I see ethics as semi-mathematical and morals subject to whim - this is where I bring up Hitler, lol>]).
    Everyone is a case study.

    I am on a mission. I love the intellectual life. And history lives for me.

    Also I understand we perceive by making distinctions. So I first make very clear distinctions in order to see.

    I do understand this arouses strong feeling in others, and all I ask is that they keep their good humour and forebear from insulting me personally.

    The intellectual life is like riding a large wave. The largest wave I have ridden was at Cronulla beach in Sydney after a storm. It was very exciting and I was completely taken by the wave. And eventually the wave washed me up in the beach. Wow!

    And naturally I have been catching intellectual waves ever since.

    So Alcea Rosea you are right, I am a body surfer on a mission, riding the storm.

    You're so good, Victor. I kind of envy people who have missions and who are on missions. Althought it is easier not to have one.

    My secret mission is to be happy. And I find I am quite happy here.

    I do recognise that some are not happy here, and I do know that misery loves company.

    It's just that I have found misery to be unnecessary and garden variety happiness to be common.

    At first I would join the dance of misery and reply to an insult with an insult. But very soon I learnt this was a never ending loop whose sole purpose was to share the misery.

    And I do recognise that there are some who intensely want to share the misery and will tell you that you are bad if you don't want to share.

    I like to be good as well as happy so at first I fell for that. Unfortunately even sharing misery is a never ending loop. So I simply stepped off the merry-go-round. It still keeps going round and round, it seems almost by itself. But here I am in the sunshine and crisp air listening to them telling me they can't get off.

    I am happy in the noosphere. It does seem to be a loop as well. But whereas misery is a vicious cycle, the noosphere is a virtuous circle.
