    It's as beautiful as watching supernovas explode, black holes whirling and swirling, the shifting of the tides, the interaction of the weather patterns, the underwater eddies of the ocean currents.

    And then we drop into the complex dances of how people interact and function and careen off each other like billiard balls in new directions. Or the intricacy of the human body, that starts from one small zygote and differentiates in the quadrillions of specialized cells, each one knowing somehow how to function and where to place itself within the organism.

    It's enough to take your breath away, when you finally see those intricate patterns all woven together.

    (Toolbox, indeed.)

    F is beautiful in its own right, but it focuses on other things.
    That writing is inspired and captures a sense of big picture analysis.

    What would F focus on in its conception of how the universe works? (anyone may answer)

    I don't think T is a toolbox (although someone might embrace that label), but I think people tend to draw a bigger circle around whatever they consider to be their functional preferences, and a small "other" circle around the opposite preference as a dumping ground for whatever is unimportant or uninteresting to that person. Reality and people's experiences tend to exist in that overlapping area that is claimed by both. The refusal to look at the other person and see the true size of their circle is where a lot of the stereotypes and distortions occur.

    People are people. Some are screwed up.
    I am. And so do the others

    That's all we ever do. You do know that mbti is junk, right? Fun. But still junk.

    Again, your thorough and explicit analysis of whatever your laser-light insight focuses on dazzles me.

    It was just a stab at Haight and the emporium. For the delusion that he thinks he is an T and others F. I find it awfully funny.

    He's pretty T, honestly... but he's never been the world's greatest type-ist, otherwise.

    (besides, then he'd be Haighf, not Haight, and that just sounds kinda weird.)

    I think he is definitely INTJ if for no other reason he has that wonderful understated humor that not everyone quite gets or is sure of if he's kidding or not...

    Uh... I don't want to ruin the monstrous, dictatorial, soul-crushing image he's cultivated so carefully on the forum.

    (Not without his explicit permission of course. Please, don't punish me, master!)

    Maybe because he classed himself as INTP when he first started out in typology?
    It's not that hard to figure out.

    Now he's paying out of pocket for both forums. Yeah, he's a beast.
