    Yes. But the general populace are wrong.

    Our inevitable genius proves this.

    As in; sooner or later, we're bound to get lucky.

    -How beautiful, this pale Endymion hour.
    -What are you talking about?
    -Endymion, my dear. A beautiful youth possessed by the moon.
    -Well, forget about him and get to bed.
    -Yes, my dear.

    Is it socially acceptable to stare at blind people?



    Questions like that?
    Why do we always come here?

    I guess we'll never know.

    It's like a kind of torture,
    To have to watch this show.

    Recently I asked a group of my peers what the point of couples holding hands was. I pointed out that there is absolutely no reason for it, and asked for a logical explanation.

    They just laughed, and someone said "Because you want to." Lame. But I guess they thought it was a stupid question, because they were stumped.

    Well, it's not like the blind guy can see you, right?

    I remember asking lots of questions like that... until I fell in love for the first time.

    Most people don't go through a rational process in order to implement a reaction, they just react to what they're feeling. But the INT's are especially likely to analyze a response rather than feeling it and before ever allowing themselves to act upon it.

    I don't think either way is particularly bad. The latter is able to step outside the box and make sure that the reactions are appropriate; the former acts in a more holistic fashion, actually LIVING rather than thinking about living.

    Well, you know, the blind guy can't see so he won't mind, but the other people around you would notice and think that you were being rude, although the blind guy wouldn't notice.

    It causes a somewhat sticky situation.

    Hmm. Okay, maybe you can pretend you're blind too, so everyone feels bad for you as well.

    Figured out that these are all throwaway answers yet?

    (IRL, I don't usually stare at anyone, especially if I know others are watching me do it, and I often act casual as not to make people uncomfortable; and the only reason I ever would watch someone like that is not as an oddity but because I truly would want to understand them without intruding.)
