    This more contemporary view of the Rand topic is interesting.

    I'm just here to clarify one sentence. Why are you suggesting a book? Is it that good?

    She's clearly ESTJ. Even her ideas seem ESTJ, or, more specifically, 8.

    How do you do that? She's cool, but you admit her ideas are objectionable?

    It's good in that it shows Rand's methodology of taking a broader view than one idea that Aristotle and Plato may have had in common. She is looking at the entirety of human history and the broad range effects that philosophers have. Then she is dividing them into absolute black vs white camps. Mostly black.

    @KDude

    She cool in the sense of being very self possessed and communicating her ideas very clearly. She doesn't let him talk over her and she doesn't ever give the impression of being on defense. I think that's cool. If only she was using those powers for good.

    I don't agree with everything this banker says, but he does a good job of presenting how selfishness fits productively into a community. If every business were run with his focus on responsibility and working for the win-win scenario, we would need far less government regulation to shore up the right of every individual to work toward his/her own self interest -- "to pursue happiness".
    I've been called a criminal, a terrorist, and a threat to the known universe. But everything you were told is a lie. The truth is, they've taken our freedom, our home, and our future. The time has come for all humanity to take a stand...

    I considered that but ESTJs are usually hardcore traditionalists so the whole idea of "creating a new morality" seems like it would would be upsetting to them. I don't disagree however that ESTJs love them some Ayn Rand.
