    I remember reading a few threads back on Perc about this idea that the world is run by SJ's. Now I dont nay or yay that train of thought primarily because on the one hand there is no way to accurately measure a theory built upon heuristic evidence, but on the other...ive singularly failed in every job or endeavour ive ever tried to put my effort into.

    If it IS an SJ world in some inherent, objective way then something somewhere is having a huge laugh at my expense....or nothing is, but my mind certainly is.

    oh, yeah, I guess that makes sense. I read it as "NT's will run the world and everyone else will work"
    But if by "running the world" you mean every position/ job including the lowest, you're saying the same thing

    i have this cool idea that instead of clever, people would live longer if they were kind to one another. you know? so hitler would have lived 2 milliseconds. and martin luther king would not have been assassinated. this is really cool because then you wouldn't have war, not poverty. instead of struggling to be smart (how egotistic and ultimately pointless is that?) people would be struggling to be kinder to one another.

    For some reason I picture this as a speech at the end of Southpark where the whole town is fighting and someone tells them to stop and kyle or someone says all this and then everyone starts hugging.

    Geez... Some of the assessments in here make me rethink being an SP... If I went by this thread and the stereotypes I'd be an NF....

    I think the different types would all have a different hierarchy of what they deemed most important in regards to values... So, if in some bizarre world only one MBTI type ruled it all... I could see how it would vary. Though... I'm not even sure it'd be a temperament thing. Like, I'm not sure an ISTP or ESTP would share the same "most important value" as I do...
