    No Victor. To measure reality, we must first perceive what is to be measured. Without an idea of what something is, we can not even begin to rationalize it in a scientific sense. Your psychometrics are useless to someone that doesn't find the perceptions it bases its measurements upon to be right or accurate. And your failure to accept science can be fallible is starting to draw you as not only a charlatan, but a fool.

    Like so many here you finally resort to insults, calling me a charlatan and a fool. Well, fortunately insults are against the rules here and may lead to banning.

    I rarely think of either of those but basically I'm more inclined to be more "for". It's live and let live as long as they don't get in my way, I guess I have little need to be against anything except perhaps unnecessary obstacles that are against me

    I'm neutral until things are put in my face, and then my J comes out.

    I really don't think about being for or against anything until somebody puts something out there to me, at which point I will tell them if I am for or against. Or uncertain.

    Also my 'against' is not a very strong one, because I know people are going to do what they do anyway even if I think it's wrong. Honestly, when I say I'm for or against something, most of the time I don't even expect it to change - it's simply my refusal to be silently complicit.
