    I have this feeling that if greenfairy were INFP, she'd would be very angry right now. At least, even with my secondary Fi.. I'd probably be very heated up if this were my thread.

    This is excellent. If I may translate this into INTP language, a duality can be represented graphically by two disconnected points - Yes/No; Good/Bad; Honour/Shame; Masculine/Feminine. Some societies are so dualistic that not even their language can cope with shades of grey. An example of this was the Hebrew nation at the times of the Bible. So what we do to introduce shades of grey is to draw a line between the two disconnected points and we can now place little flags, one for each person, on that line according to how masculine or femimine they are. We have our shades of grey. NOW all we need is to define masculine & feminine. That just could be the hard bit .

    PS: ... and then we realise that some of our flags really ought to be placed above or below the line. Now what?
    Cognitive functions:
    Fi (95%); Ti (90%); Ne (75%); Fe (60%); Ni (50%); Si (50%); Te (15%); Se (5%)

    I can't relate to the concept of the opening post since it assumes victim status for women and the inability of men to synch and process emotional states. Autonomy that's not steeped in Fi-Si (social construct binary) values, can't relate.

    I don't believe men and womens' highest callings are different. On the other hand, I certainly don't think every person's highest calling is the same.

    its so self evident that you(or at least most) dont need some scientific experiment to come to that conclusion.

    Externally, the most sexually dimorphic portions of the human body are the chest, the lower half of the face, and the area between the waist and the knees.[5]
    Males weigh about 15 % more than females, on average. For those older than 20 years of age, males in the US have an average weight of 86.1 kg (190 lbs), whereas females have an average weight of 74 kg (163 lbs).[6](lol americans are FAT)
    On average, men are taller than women, by about 15 cm (6 inches).[1] American males who are 20 years old or older have an average height of 175.8 cm (5 ft 9 in). The average height of corresponding females is 162 cm (5 ft 4in).[6]

    On average, males are physically stronger than females. The difference is due to females, on average, having less total muscle mass than males, and also having lower muscle mass in comparison to total body mass. While individual muscle fibers have similar strength, males have more fibers due to their greater total muscle mass. The greater muscle mass of males is in turn due to a greater capacity for muscular hypertrophy as a result of men's higher levels of testosterone. Males remain stronger than females, when adjusting for differences in total body mass. This is due to the higher male muscle-mass to body-mass ratio.[7]

    As a result, gross measures of body strength suggest an average 40-50% difference in upper body strength between the sexes as a result of this difference, and a 20-30% difference in lower body strength.[8] This is supported by another study that found females are about 52-66 percent as strong as males in the upper body, and about 70-80 percent as strong in the lower body.[9]

    Males, on average, have denser, stronger bones, tendons, and ligaments.
    men also run faster than women on average: http://answers.yahoo.com/question/in...1160130AAKjEb7

    not to mention that an average male is more skilled on fighting than an average female.

    I look at it like Yin and Yang. Everyone has both, most have more of one than the other.

    So, even though Yin is feminine, dark, yielding, and associated with water, that doesn't mean that someone with Yin is a woman.

    That's part of the picture. But it's not linear. It looks like this:


    Which is what dualism is missing. My version I call polarity, because they are two sides of one whole.

    Yes.
    I make this clear in my WOT if one reads it carefully.

    I think that once again, if you read my WOT carefully, it will be obvious that this is not the case in my interpretation. If you are simply talking about the original thing I'm posting about, I could see how it might look that way. However, something that is thought of as a proverb by Native Americans would probably not have such a simplistic meaning. I think that's illogical.
