    Default NFs and political views anyone?

    I couldn't imagine being anything but a raving socialist (libertarian, mind) To me it feels like a rather INFP thing, being all idealistic and sharing with everyone and equality and everyone be happy (yeah, yeah, I did put idealistic first...)

    But I don't know - doesn't seem to be any threads about it, so I thought I'd ask

    I could be ENTJ or ENFJ, i'm close on the dichotomies...

    I'm a nationalist. Used to be a socialist, and I guess I still am in many ways. But I want to take care of my own first in a time when that is not done at all.
    Europe is a real mess right now. Especially if you're young and male, the powers that be hates us.

    Mightier than the tread of marching armies is the power of an idea whose time has come

    Libertarian leaning towards civil libertarianism, here.

    I can't stand the idea of socialism, I still can't quite figure out why. I think I hate what tends to accompany it more so than the idea itself.

    Well, yes, I can sort of see that, if you mean the actual instances when people have claimed to have installed socialism (which they obviously hadn't...). I think a main point is that it is on a very theoretical and ideal level for me, mostly based on a sort of instinct towards equality and humanism. Perhaps Socialism as a reaction to Capitalism is a good emphasis to make, which I would say is its origin and what it should largely be about, as a better, though not perfect, option...

    By US standards, I'm socialist. But, really, I think what makes for good government more than anything is a lack of corruption. A lot of systems can and have worked, but corruption can screw up any system.

One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”

    It would surprise me if there weren't some kind of connection. I'm not fantastically good at these things, but features such as having traditional vs. 'rebellious' views, being pragmatic or idealistic, valuing family, and so on, would relate both to specific types and political schools.

    A correlation wouldn't surprise me, but anything you get on this site is likely to be skewed. It is generally left-leaning or at least my perception is that it is.

    Really? The site in general or the NF forum in particular... Maybe it just proves my theory that the NFs ARE ALL SOCIALISTS!!! Workers in all countries unite!

    The entire site leans left.
