    That's so funny...I didn't even think about this writing style (I can do several...well not me...each of my personas can do a different one...but I can only be one persona at a time...understand?)...but I did think that it would be very cool if I could be "unnerving"...I did, really...had that exact thought...ah, synchronisity

    The reason they're on even footing is because, being human ourselves, Ts cannot separate themselves from all things 'F', just as F types cannot separate themselves from the harsh realities of an impersonal world.

    Oh I get it, you have MPD.

    I'm just kidding. I think.

    There is an inherent complexity in any social group. Not only must we remember the individuals who make up the group, we must also remember the relationships between them–and while the number of individuals increases arithmetically, the number of relationships grows exponentially. If we have 99 people, and add 1 more, we’ve only added one individual, but 99 new relationships. It seems that it was precisely that complexity that drove the growth of the primate brain. If that is true, then the seperation from Australopithecine to Homo was likely driven by a social evolution. This is the same time we start to see the first stone tools, and possibly the first evidence for hunting, rather than scavenging. Hierarchical troops make social groups less complex, by fitting all members into a strict hierarchy–chimpanzees can get by simply remembering the individuals and their rank. Rhizomatic societies–that is, egalitarian societies–have an exponential number of relationships, as each individual relates to every other individual in new and different ways. As humans became hunter-gatherers, the simple hierarchical model that served so many other primates ceased to suffice. We needed to become egalitarian to survive, and in order to do that, we needed bigger brains relative to our bodies.
    That's from a thesis written by a friend of mine. He's an INTJ, by the way, so you can't claim the theory upsets all of them.

    I like to think I surf the archtypal stream...MPD sounds so clinical...it infers that I'm insane which is insulting...I'm eccentric...well, very eccentric...but get along very well in the world...I know, I know..you're thinking "that just means your functionally insane"...whatever, man...semantics

    by the way, that's what I meant by "enlightening"...I didn't say my INTJ friends got upset...they just got very fired up over the idea...and apparently your friend did as well...fired up enough to write a paper on it...and it would be an INTJ who did it too...those guys never let me down

    No, I didn't think that. I was kidding. Haha, you see? Sigh.

    to op:

    I haven't read the thread, because I don't feel like it mostly but, no type is smarter then any others. So no Fs are not smarter then Ts . I'm sure if you look you can find morons in every type. Of course you can find smart people in every type aswell.
    In no likes experiment.

    that is all

    i dunno what else to say so

    Well, anyway. Intelligence is such an ill-defined concept that it would be impossible to say that Ts are smarter than Fs or vice-versa. People have been trying to argue this sort of thing forever, and we can keep going until the cows come home.

    If it's any indication, I believe the Ts started it, however the Fs are the ones who keep retaliating and won't let it die.

    Besides, I think that theory assumes that T's can't understand social dynamics.

    Social dynamics is the object.
    F's get there one way.
    T's get there another way.
    F's may get there faster than T's but that doesn't mean they are superior.

    There is just too much ego in that theory that I find it hard to approach. Shrug.
