    It's comments like this that are utterly baffling. Where did I indicate that I have used my criticism to bolster my own supposed sense of superiority? I simply criticised something-something very deserving of criticism-and no more.

    Maybe you are superior. It's a possibility.

    Isn't it great how we can give anything credibility by making up an explanation that supposedly involves evolutionary psychology?

    Maybe so. Perhaps you are too. What isn't in doubt is that your response doesn't relate to anything I've said.

    It related to a statement made about you, however.
    but no matter. This thread is gasping for air as I type this...

    You said something you did as if it were the correct thing to do and then immediately criticized people who did other things. You didn't criticize the thing, you criticized the people. That's heavily implying that you feel like you are superior to the others.

    "I don't much care about making friends. I don't much care about influencing people, either. If these are your life's aims, you haven't a life at all."

    That is a statement that puts yourself above people who disagree with you.


    PS: I have a tendency to completely derail threads. I should work on that. ((self-improvement!))

    This book by far is the single most important thing i have ever read, and it dramitically changed my life and helped me understand others, myself, and just good people handling skills, every entp and estp wants to know these things as it helps immensly with satisfyling our hidden agenda.
    Have read this 4 or 5 times. Best thing I've read. It is a lot easier to read and understand it than it is to do those things however.

    It's in response to a statement made by me, but does not relate to it beyond that.

    In this case the criticism of the ideas expressed in the OP will inevitably lead to the criticism of those who live by those ideas.

    If it does, it is an unintended consequence and does not constitute the purpose of my response, as seemed to be your accusation.
