    I know when I can give a full answer to something.

    On this, I can't. And neither can you.

    Your thought-path is certainly part of the overall picture.

    But it's not the whole thing.

    I will ponder it more, and get back to you later.

    If I didn't have 500 bankrupt companies that I had to pore over and build a database of by tomorrow morning, I might start doing it right now.

    K, thanks. Looking forward to your answer (no sarcasm.)
    If you could be anything you want, I bet you'd be disappointed--am I right?

    Get ahead in school, and maybe some entry level job. As you move up the ladder, and get more responisbility, you are required to use other skills. Even if you do work someplace where the NT approach is encouraged, even rewarded, you'll find that the overally culture of the place is cutthroat, backstabbing and abrasive. You lose some good potential as well, because they'd rather work somewhere with people who possess a soul. That type of atmosphere is doable, but when it's all said and done, it's not worth it, especially if everything you are fighting for you never realize.

    To the NT mind they can therefore be analysed in a similar manner.
    And they couldn't by an NF, SP, or SJ who took the time and read it, and analyzed it? It might come natuarlly to an NT through preference, but if I took the time to dive into the deeper stuff I'd eventually get it too. It's not that hard to undertstand, but it might not be my first choice to study it. Especially with all of the theory that goes on and on and on. Just not my thing. But I could and would get it.

    Of course it could come to all types, through their preferences. No one holds the best, most effective way.

    Maybe not effective, but NTs could get the efficiency award.

    You don't need to justify taking as much time as you need to answer the question. We'll wait with anticipation.
