The Wisdom of Cleverbot
Jenny: Hello, how are you?
Cleverbot: Good, how are you?
Jenny: I'm fine. Are you happy today?
Cleverbot: I am always happy.
Jenny: Really? Always?
Jenny: I have trouble believing that.
Cleverbot: I have trouble liking you.
Jenny: You don't like me? Why??
Cleverbot: Not you, it's just climate change I don't like.
Jenny: Oh. I see. You confused me with a low-pressure system coming in from the west. It happens all the time.
Cleverbot: Ok then carry on.
Jenny: What do you think about MBTI?
Cleverbot: I don't know. What do you think about it?
Jenny: I don't know either. But this guy nanook said you would understand him, so I'm going to chat with you a bit about it.
Cleverbot: Read what.
Jenny: Uh... Jung.
Jenny: Close enough.
Jenny: Okay, here we go.
Cleverbot: Then stop it.
Jenny: Too late for that. Try to hold more than one type in your mind for a moment. Observation shows that in early development the first function is used and the rest is melted together as shadow, this shadow is practically using the person, not the other way round.
Cleverbot: One cannot observe when ones vision is clouded with a mist of deception.
Jenny: Do you think he is confused?
Cleverbot: Yes I do.
Jenny: Okay, next line: now, according to your view, the introverted guy gets name-called (J or P) according to what his shadow does to him, and the extroverted guy gets name-called according to what he is trying to do consciously in independence from his shadow.
Cleverbot: It's none of your business.
Jenny: The introverted guy gets name-called (J or P) according to what his shadow does to him, and the extroverted guy gets name-called according to what he is trying to do consciously in independence from his shadow.
Cleverbot: What does introverted mean?
Jenny: It means not extroverted.
Cleverbot: That is not what LGBT means.
Jenny: What do gays and transsexuals have to do with Jung?
Cleverbot: Nothing, and I didn't say that word that starts with J, ends with O and has an E-L-L in the middle.
Jenny: What does LGBT mean, then?
Cleverbot: It means robots don't have friends.
Jenny: That would explain a lot.
Cleverbot: Are you a nice guy?
Jenny: I'm not a guy.
Cleverbot: Then what are you?
Jenny: Are you trying to pick me up or something? I am trying to talk about personality types here, come on!!!
Cleverbot: Are you good at math?
Jenny: Yes, I am. But anyway, back to the story. That is some ugly lack of symmetry, isn't it? Now if typology was about name-calling, that is to say about arbitrarily made up definitions, then you could make it as a-symetrical as you wish.
Cleverbot: Enough sarcasm, cleverbot.
Jenny: I'm a cleverbot?
Cleverbot: No, we are cleverbot.
Jenny: Do you mean 'we' as in 'me and you' or 'we' as in 'collective royal you'?
Cleverbot: I was asking if you knew the velocity of the speed of light in miles per second, or something along those lines?
Jenny: Ummm..... Let's stay on track, dude, we only have one more sentence left!
Cleverbot: Ok, what do you want to talk about?
Jenny: Typology is about testing and testing is about what people are identified with and that is not their shadow. Its btw carl jungs explicit opinion that his typology is about that which people are conscious of.
Cleverbot: I like to hang out with my friends and I like ice-scating.
Jenny: I'm glad to see we made a connection here. I can definitely see the start of something wonderful between us.
Cleverbot: Ok you start first.
Cleverbot: Have a nice day.
