    Hahaha, maybe he secretly does. If you follow his post history, though, you'll see that he expresses hatred for Jung. He considers Jung the creator of new age religion, an opponent of reason(and Victor's beloved enlightenment), and an ally of the Nazis.

    So you see, the next Jung would be someone that Victor would want dead.

    Eh, we don't know him well enough to truly say if he will or will not, Hmm. To tell the truth, though, the ambiguity of the possibility does present a very humorous thing to poke at him about.

    Of course.

    I have to admit though, if someone says something sketchy, to which my response would be "What the hell are you talking about?" I'll initially give them the benefit of the doubt if they're, say, NT. And I'll say "What the hell are you talking about?"

    With some other types, I'm more inclined to blow it off. "OK, that's great. See you!"

    It'd be fitting if Victor became the next Jung. "He who fights monsters" and all that.

    Then again, that was Neitzche.

    @ Little Linguist: I suppose I'm a very nice NT. Regardless of type, if somebody says something very stupid that doesn't make any sense, I give them one chance to redeem themselves and make it make sense. If they don't take that chance, or they fail, I then proceed to tear their argument apart, like tearing the ribbon out of a cassette.

    what if it was just random small talk? i like being random just to bring a smile on people's faces. it's not like i just string random letters together or anything, usually some outlandish story that is obviously false. if everyone found it entertaining, would you find that obnoxious?

    Aww, but I think people should be open and honest with each other. How can we grow and develop if we cannot open up our hearts and minds to one another? I mean - it's just a thought. *shrugs*

    Bah! Closed-minded rigidity is for "kleingeistige Menschen" (Hmmm, what the hell does that mean in English - wait a sec - Oh, man, this is one of these, hmm, German things...I'll let you know later). Anyway, if someone is truly open-minded, and I think intellectually curious people usually are or should be, they should not just react with total animosity towards new ideas. Now, that doesn't mean that one can't have a friendly banter now and again - maybe even a charged banter - but respect needs to be the key.

    If you can't respect the people, you need to say, "Sorry, but you are a total fart, and I can't understand where your crazy ass is coming from. Now, if you will excuse me, I'm going to drink some wine because that would be more productive than talking to you."

    It's not unjust to relate it to emotions though. It is invariably the direct result of an emotion. It's just that, we can't say Feeling equates, because not all emotions are automatically Feeling judgement.

    Extroverted perception often appears to offer emotive responses as do all introverted functions when violated or otherwise released -- see: catharsis -- including Ti (yes I'm talking to you Bluewing).
    True.

    Maybe we're the demons.

    No wait! It must be those impulsive sinning Se types.
    Or the conniving intuitors; perhaps its them.


    Find my angle.
    Extreme farts are the . Balanced folks of all types are really cool to be with and interesting to talk to. IMO.

    But I did come up with one idea that I at least think is better than Thinking and Feeling, which are highly ambiguous. My idea was that it might be better to call them Logic and Ethic. Logical and Ethical. Of all the words I could think of, none seemed to more closely match the definitions of Thinking and Feeling than logic and ethic. It is what the two functions principally deal with.
    How can you illustrate something as complex as the human brain and psyche into mere words? It is difficult in any language, even in English.

    HAH! Interesting. I'd be more likely to say, "What the hell are you talking about?!?!?!" to any type and then judge and say, "Man, you have a point there," or "Man, you ARE a crazy fart that comes out of my dog's ass after eating potato salad." regardless of type.

    Jack Flak's response: Ok, that's great, see you!!!!!!!!"

    Hahahaha!
