    ANYONE who's that defensive about proving their superiority is hiding something

    especially if they're trying to "prove" it with the same study as one of the site's most notable billy goat eaters that is a sorry piece of work

    My group's superiority is not my superiority. My superiority is established and independent of it. I'm just trying to ground in a fact that is truthful but everyone denies because it's offensive, which drives me up the wall. The truth is the truth, even if it's ugly.

    Seriously, doesn't it bug you when people think being offensive somehow deprives you of the ability to be right? :steam:
    If you could be anything you want, I bet you'd be disappointed--am I right?

    and I'm saying that it's shoddy research and that to draw conclusions from that is to unwisely jump to conclusions

    you DO know what assuming does don't you Alexsi...

    I'm also saying that it's just tacky to take up the same argument as a total troll... not good politics in the least

    The thing with all this information and research is what can you trust and what is dubious, if there's an equal amount of evidence for and against a theory or idea, it can be very hard to judge good research from bad research. The research of MBTI types correlating with IQ does seem a little dubious to me. Is there any other independent research in this area?

    In a way, MBTI is just a catergorization system, you could easily divide people in 8, 35, or 127 different personality types.
    To me it works good as a theoretical model but none of these types actually "exist", they are ideal archetypes.

    INTJ | 5w4 - Sp/Sx/So | 5-4-(9/1) | RLoEI | Melancholic-Choleric | Johari & Nohari

    This will not end well...
    But it will at least be poetic, I suppose...

    Hmm... But what if it does end well?
    Then I suppose it will be a different sort of poetry, a preferable sort...
    A sort I could become accustomed to...

    I stopped paying attention when dude said that MBTI was as scientifically sound as OCEAN

    (hint: a probabilistic and situation-based personality system is gonna be more reliable and accurate)

    seriously, like, when that happened, my eyes just glazed over as I was scrolling through the rest of this thread

    if INTJs are statistically smarter than ESFPs, then, well, we found ourselves an outlier

    Se's the one which reminds me to enjoy the real party at the moment it's there. Ne's the one which imagines a million alternative parties.

    But what's happened to the original discussion in this thread, actually? The stupid guy in comic fiction, remember?
    I've thought about the very few funny things I've read and enjoyed... and I remembered a lot of stupid ENTPs.
    Face it. Stupid ENTPs can beat stupid ESFPs for comic action. Inventing all sorts of original solutions which never work properly, talking their heads off about their latest theory.
    Got questions? Ask an ENTP!
