    Default Are institutions and culture influenced by what personality types are ascendent?

    Or descendent?

    I mean is it a more crucial factor, and I am thinking in terms of MBTI here, than others such as resource pressures?

    For some time now I've thought that the individual is more important than the office, including the individual's personality typology.

    So I'm interested to see if this is a shared view or not and what personality types are considered liable to contribute to a more or less mean, authoritarian or nasty society and set of norms, I dont want it to turn into a slagging match about types though and I htink it has to be thought about with the other factors in mind, resource pressures etc.

    It seems to me that ESxx types rule the world, not just because they have the advantage of numbers, but also since they have this retarded sense of the social heirarchy ingrained into their brains so that if they are too low on the ladder, they freak out and think they have no sense of accomplishment or mastery over the world, which of course they should feel that way as they would achieve even less in intellectual fields which require the might of mastermind power.

    ESxx types are the sheep in need of a shephard and when there is any threat to this herd mentality, they lose their minds and fear their false fences of security will be broken asunder.

    Perhaps to a lesser degree, I should also add ISFx and ENFx types to this list, though keep in mind that I can make very potent arguments for powerful opinions that lack sufficent empirical support, hence I can take indefensible positions and make cases in their favor. Of course, I have always seen justice as the advantage of the stronger so it follows that if a side as such, then justice demands that I deserve to win whether in reward or more importantly in principle.

    " The squeaky wheel gets the grease "...? I don't know much about mbti types but it seems that overbearing, arrogant and selfish climb the ladder to places of importance while passive people with genuine concern and their causes fall by the wayside

    this is not true. the genuine just need to combine their concern with passion like a mother teresa or a ghandi
    For all that we have done, as a civilization, as individuals, the universe is not stable, and nor is any single thing within it. Stars consume themselves, the universe itself rushes apart, and we ourselves are composed of matter in constant flux. Colonies of cells in temporary alliance, replicating and decaying and housed within, an incandescent cloud of electrical impulses. This is reality, this is self knowledge, and the perception of it will, of course, make you dizzy.

    I didn't mean to insult anybody but to paraphrase, All that's needed for evil to flourish is for thegood to stand by and do nothing.
