    It would be nice to think that. But the fact remains that creativity and reason are mutually inhibitory. And that is why is takes quite a long time to learn, as children, to distinguish between the two.

    The mutually inhibitory relationship between creativity and reason is very interesting. For when we inhibit some of our cognitive faculties we enable a corresponding set of creative faculties.

    So the relationship between the two is multi-layed and complex.

    And it can take a lifetime to learn to work gracefully between the two.

    Of course a beginner will believe that they can be both rational and creative at the same time, until they bump their heads against reality - and then the real work begins.

    And the real work begins when we realise we have two feet, creativity and reality, and we have two choices - we can remain stock still or we can dance.

    I agree, the NT is a good example of the embodiment of creativity and rationality. Intuition is our creative side and thinking is our rational side, and through using both we gain insight and oversight over the big picture.

    So were you going to try the experiment Feops?

    I'm... not sure that I could properly emote positivity towards rotting rice without feeling stupid doing it.

    Not a fact. An opinion. Your opinion.

    It doesn't matter, even though it's half asked saying the word itself carries the correct vibrational resonance. It's a shame that self doubt is causing you to not take action. I dunno all I can say is that I was highly skeptical and I felt pretty silly and stupid doing it, but after finishing it I felt 10 times wiser.

    INTJ123, thank you for giving me something to critically think about.
    But neglecting rice bowls and neglecting children are entirely different matters.
