    problem solving isn't always abstract, STPs are great problem solvers and we do it concretely, hands on. we don't need to understand the problem to fix it, that would be silly.

    Yes you can, it's called an art student.
    The first two classes you take in art school are 'How To Talk About Basic Concepts in Unnecessarily Large And Vague Terms' and 'How To Confuse The Most Basic Issues By Overthinking Them'.

    here are some abstract questions for you:
    can you hear the shape of a guitar?
    does the sun have feelings?

    here are some abstract questions for you:
    can you hear the shape of a guitar?
    does the sun have feelings?
    how does this gesture inhabit the space, converse with the ground?
    does this random mistake on the side of the canvas actually bear all of the meaning?
    (where is meaning located?)
    are paintings windows, or objects? permanent or aging? telling truth or lies?
    is good art just about combining abstract concepts into intricate invisible combinations that nobody's figured out yet (or at least popularized?)
    why are so many pieces called "untitled"?
    if everyone takes the same art history class are the memetic repercussions in the studio almost like wildfire? (yes)


    uhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

    I don't even know if that's textbook abstraction, I'm too in the clouds to say... but I can back up the art school statement. Sometimes I'm not sure the building even exists traditionally. anyone ever see that episode of the Simpsons where the academy-next-door rebuilds itself entirely every morning? Yes, it's so like that!!

    LOL. I love how you did that. Most people hate it, but I love having my own thoughts and arguments used against me for some reason.

    Abstractism is not something that can be taught. It is only something that can be told.

    Learn the rules so you can break them properly.

    That's really it.
    If you could be anything you want, I bet you'd be disappointed--am I right?

    Or just irrelevant. The existence of INFJs proved her statements wrong before I could.
