    now im even more exited!

    i think the reason medieval art looks the way it does is because of a certain cosmopolitan feeling to the whole of the middle ages (only one chruch, france/germany/italy united etc.) AND the fact that the artist/craftman dichtonomy hadn't yet permeaded western civilization as such.

    consequently, medieval art needed a sort of common framework to work within; - to preserve that unity/cosmopolitanism in its aestetics.

    am I wrong?

I smelled a big fat sewer rat and thought hang on just a minute...

    And it happened to be around the same time as I went to Egypt to visit a friend in Cairo, and of course I visited the pyramids and all that stuff. And I was looking at these ancient Egyptian works of art and how they stood there all screwy and with the eyes on the sides of the heads and the feet twisted round and all, right next to contemporary Roman and Greek statues of perfectly anatomical people. And I thought... hey... the Egyptians didn't do it because they didn't know about how to make things look realistic, because they obviously did, being surrounded also by Classical art. They must've chosen to do it that way for a reason; that style must've represented something to them that was important, which was why they clung onto the same style for thousands of years, despite the artistic innovations in the world around them.

    So I put it together with what I knew of medieval culture already and medieval art, and figured y'know, the basic Byzantine style that was copied and elaborated on all over Europe for the best part of a thousand years, well, y'know they encountered other styles and stuff and especially the Italians and French, who still had these Classical statues around them and stuff, it's not like they didn't know that it was possible to make realistic pictures and sculptures. Like the Egyptians, they must've done things the way they did for a reason.

    So I brainstormed and basically explained what that style of art meant to the medieval people, how it represented their worldview, why they weren't interested in realistic art and all that jazz. And I backed it up and proved it and everything with a lotta painstaking research and evidence. ...
    Very cool!
    I like that!

    -Hilarious
    -Very intelligent
    -Have an amazing creativity. I know some ENTP's who have the most amazing, hilarious, weird, intelligent ways of presenting their ideas.
    -Love a good discussion. I find them fun in this sense because they always try to test you just to see how far you can take yourself. However, I often hit a dead end before they do, because eventually I run out of logic and my ideas become more and more illogical.
    -Definately very open minded
    -Confident, and the ones I know seem to be very happy with who they are. One proudly proclaimed he was a very selfish person I find this to be a good thing.


    They are just generally fun people...

    And I have to listen to people going on about the 'shallow' range of ENTP knowledge and how we don't really know anything in depth, and how we're not deep thinkers and blah blah blah....zzzzz
    This made me LMAO!!!

    Usually what I do when I meet an obvious intellectual is start acting like an INTP. Then once they believe I'm an intellectual too, I starting doing more crazy "extraverted" stuff to mess with their heads.

    Oh no, I do the opposite - just play up to the image of the scatty-minded bimbo they think I am, and then occasionally interject some erudite little bombshell into their monologue, watch them do a double take, then carry on sweeping the floor casually.

    Or the heckling thing - where you ask them an unexpected question that calls into question all the assumptions their case was built on, and watch them squirm!
