    This isn't a secret, BC. It's common knowledge.
    The fact that there are no two human brains alike, is also common knowledge.

    You're doomed

    Anyway, to add to the discussion, why should Person A of Type BCDE having function FG be treated as if he has a cancerous gene that will cause malignant tumours? While I agree that cognitive functions affect decisions and actions, the decision-maker in the end is still A. I would like to believe we can control our brains better than we can the genetic makeup of our body.

    It is getting too easy to blame functions for A's decisions either as an excuse "I'm Fi, so it's ok for me to be moody" or worse as a way of stereotyping. "Person A doesn't have Ti, so his thoughts are never logical"

    seriously... blaming actions on functions is like if saying that you murdered someone because you have a mental illness... there IS such a thing as free will people :rolli:

    and I thought that ALL people of your type wanted to be like Dick Cheney Jag

    like I care what type you are! I'd say that if you had ISFP under your name

    the dick cheney thing was me paraphrasing the kid on Dr Who... the other comment went happily with the point I was making!
