    yes, I suppose I'm tempting him to break out of his mountain top prison and toss ME into a volcano by insulting him

    Look, this is like the 3rd time I've seen you trolling Victor in this forum with that personal insult, word-for-word. And even with same damn font.
    Knock it off.

    Victor, I agree that as a people we did fine, and arguably better, before. Before development. Before seeming progress. Before our inferior psyches gave in to the crush of consumerism. But I fail to see how MBTI is an evil player in the overall scheme of things. Indeed, if anything, MBTI has helped me understand my loved ones better. How can that be bad? Perhaps if the world was still pristine and primitive I would not need help understanding them, but it isn't, and sometimes I do.

    I think you are possilby anthropomorphizing a concept into an evil entity for some reason. If you'd care to discuss, I'd like that.

    Your friend,

    Aphrodite.

    Round and round, Victor's threads go.

    Where they go, everyone knows.

    The Currawong and the Jet

    I am not sure how to make contact with you.

    I could say that MBTI is more than an innocent concept - but I don't think that would make contact.

    I could say what MBTI is like, I could turn MBTI into a metaphor - but I don't think that would make contact.

    I could refer to your hands but even that doesn't make contact.

    I could be even more personal and ask how you are awry - but you have a clever response to deflect that.

    I could try to share with you the pleasure of thinking out of the box of MBTI - but you find comfort within the box.

    But still, you stand on tippy-toes and look out of the crack in the top of the box. And you look back to the cumulonimbus of Texas.

    And I sit in my box, I hear the first sound of dawn - the cry of the Currawong and the sound of the first jet taking off. Both have wings but they never meet - just like us.

    So I don't know how to make contact with you. I can imagine a Currawong and a jet looking at each other in mutual incomprehension, oblivious to the fact that both have wings.

    The Antidote

    MBTI is calculated deception. And it would poison our conversation from the beginning.

    But the antidote is the truth. So why not join me in telling the truth about MBTI?

    But your truth and my truth are so different regarding MBTI.

    How are we to reconcile the two?

    I have a feeling you are playing a game with me. And that is precisely what MBTI is.

    puzzle, not game... a puzzle that fits together to describe a person...

    unfortunatly, most try to put it together with 4 pieces and create a two dimensional image instead of finding the rest of the pieces and discovering that it's actually one of those three dimensional puzzle thingies... often with one of the pieces lost in the couch cushion!

    scientology is a LARP with really high membership fees instead
