    Shit, since we're throwing around ridiculous arguments here, I could argue that if our goal is to get to a sustainable population/consumption ratio as quickly as possible, we should just start burning resources to make people not want to have kids. At least that way we don't have to murder people. So consumption hungry-americans are actually GOOD for the world overall!!!!!!

    I actually think that argument has more logical soundness than INTP's.
    yes this might be logical, but its more cruel to starve people to death, than to give them a sudden death. not to mention that destroying croplands in a way that that people do now is cropland away from the future generations, therefore there is less room for people on this planet later.
    people will reproduce even if they are low on resources, this is exactly what is happening in africa and in parts of asia.

    Yes, of course I prefer Fi aided by lower Te, duh. But I prefer Te over Ti, from a functional preference perspective.

    i guess im taking you literally because i expect people to say things literally when it comes to writing because i cant really see peoples body language (and i think that people should say things literally when they communicate in writing, or else the writing is really inaccurate way of communication), language barrier might also have something to do with this.
    Um, maybe. I've had convos with people whom spoke English as a second language who didn't always speak literally...in fact, some cultures seem especially fond of metaphor...but okay.

    and yes im sure im an intp, not istp, my Se sucks and my Ne is almost as good as my Ti. you know Si is the third function in intps, so we do usually use it reasonably well, that doesent make me a sensor.

    to me it seems that you are the one who is playing dumb since you dont seem to be understanding what im actually saying, but maybe thats just low Te blocking out information where it shouldnt. are you sure that Te isnt your tert function? because you seem to use it as it were your tert function.
    Yep, I'm an ENFP. You caught me. Te is my tert function, people can't stop seeing it. It's like a disease.

    Yet you will.

    No, seriously, I almost feel bad for you because you're taking stuff so literally. I don't believe in playing make fun of the foreigner.

    But in this case, I'll make an exception. Just for you. Cuz I'm nice like that. Must be my Ne Fi combo.
