    Agree.

    Are you getting defensive about this? I wonder why...
    Not at all. I was just joking.
    NTJ's are the only types that have ever made me feel emo.
    ENP's are the only types that have ever made me feel like a sensor.

    An NT who lacks intelligence, an NF with a low EQ, and an SJ who can’t function in society. That kind of sound like an accountant whose poor at math, in that I’d imagine that these theoretical individuals would be pretty sparse on positive traits. I have to wonder how they would actually go about forming anything resembling a living in society, since they don’t appear to have anything competitive, neither a talent or a specialty above the norm, to offer. An unintelligent NT, by nature, would rely on his subpar intelligence to such an extent that he’d fall straight to the bottom of the socio-economical ladder. Marmalade.sunrise, could you please share the reasoning behind your assertion? Not that I particularly disagree with it, but it seems as if it’d be outside of the norm.
    Surgeons replace one of your neurons with a microchip that duplicates its input-output functions. You feel and behave exactly as before. Then they replace a second one, and a third one, and so on, until more and more of your brain becomes silicon. Since each microchip does exactly what the neuron did, your behavior and memory never change. Do you even notice the difference? Does it feel like dying? Is some other conscious entity moving in with you?

    What would you have in mind?

    Well the formidable teacher who worked 15 years at school as the perfect guy everyone liked and then goes amok and kills everybody and noone understands why..

    The thing is, all these assesments like NTs are intelligent or NFs are empathic are static. And to me a human being is way to dynamic to ever be called anything, but "this is another human being". The accountant who is good at his job today, can be bad tomorrow because the requirements have changed. Does this make him have a lesser IQ over nite ?

    If you say: "an NT who would rely on his subpar intelligence by nature would fall right down to the socio-economical bottom of the ladder" this is a quality rating that is 1-dimensional and static. You wouldnt even know if he may not do the exact opposite like he's so dumb that he's actually funny and becomes a rich comedian.

    I'ld be cautious with any generalizations one could make about people one has never met. Life aint just 16 types with a high IQ or high EQ. It's far far more complicated
