    I think we should keep going, by all means. I was being ironical toward Eileen because she kinda contradicted herself.

    No, I wasn't. I just said that while they have charisma in common, comparing Obama and Hitler is just a tactic of fear and paranoia.

    But paranoia is/was the weapon of both Obama and Hitler, and we're all affected by it. Some fall for it, others reject it.

    This is the genius of MBTI - you can dismiss what someone says simply by typing them.

    MBTI was copied from, "Personality Types", which was written to complement Somatic Types.

    And Somatic Types were used to invalidate what someone says by giving them a Somatic Type.

    The Somatic Types were Jew, Negro, Slav and Asian. And an infinite number of sub-types in between.

    Somatic Types were used to invalidate living human beings.

    And Personality Types is used to invalidate what living human beings say.

    To Type someone is to reify them.

    Irony.

    Obama doesn't play to people's fears. That's the McCain/Palin game. WTF are you even talking about?

    OMG, how hypocritical. We should get the rules in order before we play, Eileen. Are we allowed to allude to fearmongering universally, or not at all?

    You forgot:

    I mean, that -is- why you keep comparing them, isn't it? So we'll think that? Why the fuck else would you?

    See, now you're just needlessly extrapolating.
