    I saw no need to bold the last sentence.

    The whole word "stupid" is flummoxing me.

    I tend to meet many more S's in tasks that do not require add'l college education or just require more of a trades/vocational line of study or work program... and perhaps they do not articulate themselves as well as most N's seem to...

    ...but I wouldn't call them stupid. In the areas they are interested in, they're obviously a lot more skilled than I am, and have experience and knowledge I do not have. And some could easily have handled college work or higher-level studies, they just chose not to due to lack of interest... not lack of capability.

    Yup... Cause if you include head in the clouds, unable to function well in life, bad at relationships, etc... I got plenty of Ns to call stupid. Outright stupid in the "how can you be so stupid" kind of way.

    If you mean IQ, that's a lot harder. Chances are I have met one or two in my life, but I probably don't know them well enough to identify them as Ns.

    Stupid is a really stupid word....

    Yeah...
    Err.

    If an idea can be stupid or an action can be stupid then a person can be stupid.
    The exact definition of stupid is of course "something I disagree with" and not much more but is this relevant unless we're trying to obtain objective truth?
    Isn't it time for a colourful metaphor?

    Stupidity
    is such a stupid word
    Everyone's so dumb, it's true

    Stupidity
    From what we all have heard
    Is equal op-por-ti-ty-toooon.


    Sorry, got pressed for a rhyme...!

    If we're not, well, that's pretty stupid.

    Isn't Cartman a stupid low-IQ ENTJ?

    Edit: Of course, he's fictional.

    You think he's an NT??

    Actually my SO does. I haven't seen that much South Park but in the episodes I've seen he's always coming up with crazy plans for world domination, and he's definitely E.

    *checks field guide manual for ENTJ description*

    - World domination
    - Crazy plans

    Aye caramba...! You might be onto something!

    I thought Cartman was more of an INTJ, since he's more of a loner. Crazy plans for world domination certainly fall within INTJ too. INTJ's tend to focus more on the "crazy plans" while ENTJ's focus more on the "world domination".
