    Um, I'm not sure what you're talking about, Kalach was talking about Si and I was pointing out that Jung actually said that Se types dislike conjecture for conjectures sake in Psychological Types, and this was an afterthought, something that came much later after my initial authentic response.

    See, I feel/act first and analyze later. You give me way too much credit if you think I analyze first. LOL.




    You think I lack imagination because I interpret the word "exciting" as something positive, and therefore based my entire response on my realistic appraisal of why I could not morally fathom nuclear war being a pleasurable experience?



    I'm just going to presume that you didn't read the whole thread, because this response was just too much explaining.
    Well, I wanted to talk about the OP rather than functions. I think you're misinterpreting some of what I'm saying and I currently don't have the mental bandwidth to discuss your type.

    Peer pressure tends to play into a lot of these sorts of decisions where you're answering a question for an audience. Regardless of whether you say "yes" or "no".

    I haven't read the majority of the thread. I'm not really sure if I will; I doubt the test makers over at OKC anticipated the possibility that any sane individual would crave an in-depth discussion about a question that accounts for a minute percentage of one's compatibility with others. The functionality of it depends more upon how seriously the test-taker interprets the question. It kind of seems like the question really asks is: "Are you willing to take an absurd risk?", which is a reasonable criteria to test with in terms of relationship preferences. I've answered many of the questions on OKC myself, and most of the others don't refer to such over-the-top topics, which leads me to believe that there are very few OKC members who are expected to relish a nuclear holocaust. It's not designed to cater to a sociopathic audience, so on that level I don't believe there's any urgent need for a reformation of cultural mores.

    I don't want to discuss my type. I'm factually telling you, that what occurred within the thread, was Kalach saying certain traits of mine were due to Si, and I simply suggested that if he actually read Jung, it would be Se.

    I'm fact-checking. Not debating. I don't care what you think my type is.

    Well not for me at all, and if it does for you, perhaps you should look into INFJ.

    I don't think I'm an INFJ.

    @Kalach, do you think I'm an INFJ?

    Well let's ask him, since he's some kind of expert.
    Anyway. I thought you wanted to talk about the OP.

    I didn't think so.

    I'm perceptive like that.

    Yes, it's now, smart guy, and you're not talking about the OP. I'm not making a reference to the past, I'm making a reference to you absurdly asking Kalach if you're an INFJ.

    Are you that oblivious to your own behavior?

    YOU JUST SAID YOU WANT TO TALK ABOUT THE OP.

    No. I didn't think so.

    I didn't say that I wanted to talk about the OP forever, did I?

    Good-bye Gingko. Happy trolling.
