I have had, and still have ample oppertunities to cloister myself among certain groups, especially more "intellectual" groups. I have reveled in this in the past, and continue to revel in being around other NTPs. The question really is not whether to do that at all, but whether to do it exclusively. Why not do both? If anybody needs more information about how other people operate and feel on a contextual level it is those with the most tendency to generate big ideas (NTPs) that may affect humanity, that very group of people that I can "cloister" myself among.Originally Posted by Athenian200
I'm not really trying to be friends with everyone, and such a thing isn't really possible, but I am trying to be able to relate with more people-thats all. An empathic ability is important to have now and I realize that.
Yeah absolutely true, and I have neglected to remember that in this situation. However, there is some causal relationship between the two that can present itself in certain times. Also, I am used to the second case occuring but not the first. Plus, it gets rather complicated; the second case is easy to imagine, the first isn't. Someone without truth begs the question, "do they know the difference between good and evil?" Or "do they know good?". If not, then I would say it is more of a case of innocence, and not true goodness. If so, they would have to know just the subset of truth that pertains to morality.Also, you might be confusing goodness with truth. A person without truth can be good (which I think might be what you witnessed), and a person without goodness can know truths. They are not the same thing.
