    I've never had a problem wearing a seatbelt. I just accepted it as something you gotta do. I do loosen it from time to time when it starts to get a little annoying, though.

    Hilarious. I can totally picture my SP friends saying that.

    I tend to fall into the NF category of wanting people to be safe, but I don't bother people or try to force them into wearing a seat belt.

    I got in the habit of wearing a seatbelt because I got sick of catching holy HELL from my ISFJ mother if I didn't.

    And I think "let people make mistakes if they want" is a fantastic philosophy that can be applied to many areas of life. Because you'll only fuck up once (unless you're really bad). Unfortunately the prevailing attitude is that if all those safety nets weren't in place, you'd have hordes of dumbshits using up all the emergency resources.

    By safety net I mean anything that prevents you from hurting yourself, sometimes even at the cost of functionality -- guardrails, handrails, those little spikes they put on handrails to keep people from sliding down them, bank advisors, life jackets, chemical goggles, etc. And by emergency resources I mean the people and/or things that come in once you've already fucked up -- police, fire, EMT, governmental bailout packages, emergency eyewash stations, etc.
    I disagree with the logic of us needing more public safety personnel if we get rid of that stuff. We might need a few more coroners, but this way the stupid people will get weeded out much sooner in life, and I'll actually be able to not have to dodge morons every time I drive. (I live in New Jersey, we improved this year! New York beat us for worst drivers in the nation).

    I'm in favor of safety devices for circumstances beyond your control. For things that are protecting you from being a moron, not so much. Guardrails for example, are good. Shit does happen sometimes, and I like not flying off the road. Mandatory seatbelts in the car? Good. Mandatory use of seatbelt? Bad.

    Oops, sorry, that's the little voice in me that doesn't actually care what happens to stupid people/people who don't care about their life enough to take care of it on their own, so why should I care?

    *returns to political correctness* Safety? Of course it's a good thing! We need more safety devices on coffee pots, they keep on burning people who pick them up by the pot rather than the handle. While we're at it, I think we should outlaw stoves. They have that dangerous fire stuff, and get hot. Microwaves seem much safer, although they should be required to not explode stuff when people set them wrong and don't watch them.

    Depending on the situation:

    "As long as you're in my car, you don't get me in trouble for your non-compliance with the seatbelt law."

    "Your seatbelt is unbuckled."

    "Your mother and I put a lot of effort into making you. We'd hate for our investment to go to waste. Buckle up."
    If a deaf INFP falls in the forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound?

    That's my response. Unless I was driving and therefore responsible for paying, in which case I'd make it clear that they're paying the fine, not me.

    NF: 'Put on your seat belt, or I'll do it for you. I don't want to lose you.'
    NT: 'That sign bothers me. I think it's an invasion of privacy. Don't you think what you do in your car is your own business?'
    SJ: 'I won't drive another inch until you buckle up. It's the law.'
    SP: 'I bet it would be an amazing sensation to fly through the windshield.'"

    I think that it is very true, and the SP response is funny to me.

    What do you think of the Seatbelt law? Do you agree with this excerpt? Discuss.

    I would say, "I feel like I'm living in a George Orwell book, and it is frightening. Best not to get in trouble with the law, though. Besides, seatbelts save lives and only idiots wouldn't put them on in the first place."
    It's cool to see you have this book, too. Except mines sitting on my bookshelf, unopened. It was my dad's and it's fairly old, probably 10 years or so, but maybe I'll read it.

    I think that is absolutely on the nose correct. It's funny to see how accurate MBTI was developed to generalize over almost all healthy personalities.
    Is it that by its indefiniteness it shadows forth the heartless voids and immensities of the universe, and thus stabs us from behind with the thought of annihilation, when beholding the white depths of the milky way?

    I buckle mine. If the others don't want to, that's their funeral. Though I make the person sitting behind me wear theirs. No way I'm going to get hurt because they were thrown into my seat due to their idiocy.

    Seatbelts have saved my life, I never drive or stay in the car without wearing it.

    I'd go from NT response to the SP response. NF response is silly I think, I probably would tell him to buckle up, but the dramatic second half is utterly unnecessary.
