    That reminds me of something Steve Martin, the comedian, used to say.
    He said he had come up with a solution to the world population problem -
    give the death penalty for parking violations.
    That would fix it!

    That has to be one of those times when people are saying "Vote Clarkson for Prime Minister" and I laugh and then stop laughing and start thinking cause I can't actually see how it would not work. Of course there's the whole "would he even want to do it" but aside from that I could really see his brand of straight forward no nonsense thinking being a really boon to the country.

    Ah but under current rulership you could only be shot if you were middle class, of the most populous colour, creed, history, hair colour, occupation, race and religion. I'm fairly sure that's you and me on tender hooks for a fair while but a Jamaican Buddist in Russia would be untouchable

    (I think I just reminded myself of the Murphy's commercial "But like the Murphy's, I'm not bitter" Really though.. I'm not.)

    Yeah I've seen the talk about whether or not he should be PM, reminds me of his If I ruled the world article.

    I can also see his reluctance to it all as well. Since I share a lot of his ideology and the last thing I'd want is to actually be in power. I hate any type of management roles and avoid them like the plague usually.

    I wouldn't mind stepping up to sort it all out but I want to do an expedience and efficient job of it so I could recede back to my home as soon as possible.

That's just the way stereotypes go.
    It's a shame that people automatically assume that those guys are the voice of Christianity. It takes a lot of reading and thought to know the difference, and btw, I totally agree with you, INTJMom.

    When you think of an apple does it have any blemishes or is it idealised and unrealistic?
    Personally, I expect apples to be blemished.

    What is your stereotype for INTP males? Am I not in direct contradiction of a good few of those "rules"? Does the stereotype still remain? Of course it does. It's how you make sense of the world (that's a universal you btw). Without stereotypes there would be no apple (Ooo Wildcat moment ).
    Mmm... for me, my stereotype of INTP males are: smart, amazing, loving, studious, precise, loyal, humorous... and wonderful!

    I am a bit biased because I have quite a few amazing INTPs in my family (my Dad, my youngest son, my brother, my youngest sister... and my love is also an INTP!)

    So, is there another example you can use?

    He was referring to MY opinion of male INTPs.
    Xander is one of the few I can tolerate, and I have told him so.
    They usually drive me insane.
    When I first came here, I did not know an INTP I had a good opinion of.
