Yeah, that one's not especially self-explanatory and I think I threw quite a few people off- it's an analogy I've used in the past and I'm so accustomed to the same people participating in these discussions that it didn't occur to me to explain. I have edited the post to include the original analogy explanation at the bottom. (Thank you for the nudge to do that.)2) speaking of INFPs, what on earth do you mean by "raw batter" ? I'm usually good with metaphors (being an INTJ with *strong* Ni) but this one eludes me.
