There are two ways of thinking.
We have been thinking the first way for 200,000 years and we have been thinking the second way for only 100 years, and that only in privileged parts of the world, particularly the West.
The first way of thinking is intuitive and the second is counter-intuitive.
The first has given us everything from maternal love and religion to territorial empires.
The second has given us plenty; it has given us political freedom; and it has given us science.
The first way of thinking is based on the spoken word and the second is based on literacy.
The first is intuitive and the second is counter-intuitive.
MBTI is firmly based in the first way of thinking.
MBTI is intuitive, MBTI is natural.
You are free from compulsion - you are not compelled by State Law to go to a special institution with specially trained staff, for 10 years, to learn MBTI - as you are with literacy.
In fact you can pick it up naturally then share it with your friends.
MBTI comes out of our infancy just like mother love.
But a big change is upon us - we are moving out of our second way of thinking and back to the past - we are moving from literacy back to the spoken word. And we are doing this via the electronic media.
The electronic media reinforces MBTI - just like here - it sets it like reinforced concrete.
The first way of thinking has won.
