I'm actually not even sure what you mean by a self-congratulating thread. Something like the ENFP Te Bitchslap [wank motion] Stories? So, INTP Si Ignore Threatening Reason Stories? INTJ Fi Whiny Bitchfest Stories? ENTP Fe Boisterous Buffoonery Stories? And finally, ENTJ Se Tornado of Destruction Stories?
I know right? It's a frightening thing, really.... what is NTness without excessive pride in one's abilities? It's turning into a big mushy humblefest quick... I think we need some of those fresh recruits who are still in touch with the NT=awesome-masters-of-the-universe point of view.
It's so obvious, it would be redundant (and emotionally driven) to actually feel the need to state it out loud.
"Hey Capa -- We're only stardust." ~ "Sunshine"
“Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft
