    And then I tried it again:

    'One of (Lucas) Cranach's masterpieces, discussed by (Joseph) Koerner, is in it's self-referentiality the perfect expression of left-hemisphere emptiness and a precursor of post-modernism. There is no longer anything to point to beyond, nothing Other, so it points pointlessly to itself.' - Iain McGilChrist

    Suppose a tree fell down, Pooh, when we were underneath it?"
    "Suppose it didn't," said Pooh, after careful thought.
    Piglet was comforted by this.

    We move one step closer to thought police.

    Worse, there is a chance that long held prejudices can now become "justified" because an algorithm has been trained to encode them.

    Says it does not work on mobile phones. So will have to try later.

    Dear Citizen
    The NSA analysed your vocal stylings and have assessed your primary mood as "negative", "uncooperative" and "hostile towards Western values", and secondarily "concealing terrorist sympathies".

    I repeated the same monologue about the lack of railway systems in China in 1860, and I got a different result every time I talked to it, which I find dubious (my feelings must be very tempestuous!). Also, the provided descriptions of ones feelings are enough of an abstraction that I think the Forer effect may be involved for those who are convinced.

    Curiously my primary and secondary feelings always matched.

    Attempt #1: I talked about how I've been sick in bed all weekend, except for seeing a movie and buying catfood.
    Primary: Desire to act, prohibited from a fear of failure.
    Secondary: Longing, hope, concerns.

    Attempt #2: Talked about what a douchebag my cat is sometimes.
    Primary:Attempt to communicate hope and conviction despite the reality.
    Secondary: Painful communication. High sensitivity.

    Attempt #3: Talked about some imaginary hot guy.
    Primary: Need for communication and dependence on warm and supportive interpersonal contact.
    Secondary: Emotional frustration.

    Attempt #4: Talked casually about my dad's death, as if I were just going grocery shopping.
    Primary: Disguised passion, possibly from shyness.
    Secondary: Repressed or stressful desires and dreams.

    Attempt #5: Same as Attempt #4
    Primary: Rebelliousness, independence, unwillingness to accept authority.
    Secondary: Rebelliousness, independence, unwillingness to accept authority.


    Aside from some of the pretty screwball readings, the answers are pretty Forer to me, honestly.

    “Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    So pretty much the same as MBTI?
