    i was thinking about that before i made this thread. i was imagining what if the NTs worked together and eliminated all the other temperaments(take note it's only an imagination). then came up with the question..but let's go with the "NTs from the start of mankind"

    in our world storytelling (Si) & craftsmanship (Se) have being major players in the early development of civilization, the accumulation of information prior to the written word as well as early tool using. if you take out SJs & SPs, you are left with those kept only in tertiery & inferior forms, which develop much later. this would increase the importance of elders quite a bit, which creates a problem, because in this alternative universe we might not have accumulated enough Si knowledge of medicinal properties in order to create a caste of elders in the first place.

    so while it's possible that we would never have the hangover's of anti-scientific cultural warfare, we might never get to that and in turn be stuck in the stone age for a lot longer.

    The world would slowly deteriorate while all the NTs debated in their ivory towers.

    There would be less emphasis on appearance, females would probably have less pressure in that sense and people would in general be more judged on intelligence or knowledge. Religion would possibly been never have been made a dominant social feature. More of a constant drive to move forward and discover the new, rather than preservation for stability, like the current SJ climate. So maybe science/technology would be further ahead by now. Social etiquette would be lessened, and anything unnecessary would be removed. Perhaps less wars, except for when the odd INTJ gets their vulnerable tert-Fi hurt . This applies if they don't all take on direct roles that other temperaments would be filling like @SuchIrony said. And that was all based on NTs stereotypical features, so no one start getting there little panties in a twist over it.

    Not a great movie, but there's one part of the Matrix Revolutions at the very end that I really like.

    Someone asks the Architect if he will keep his word, and he says "What do you think I am? Human?"
    [Trump's] rhetoric is not an abuse of power. In the same way that it's also not against the law to do a backflip off of the roof of your house onto your concrete driveway. It's just mind-numbingly stupid and, to say the least, counterproductive. - Bush did 9-11

    This seems like a null scenario. People develop in response to stimuli, so NT parents will inevitably breed non-NT children who need to make up for their parents' deficits.

    They're still NTs but NTs taking on SJ, SP, or NF roles.
    This already happens I work in an SP dominated workplace in a non-technical role. I do better than just survive. It's not as if the world is currently arranged into neat little cognitive function segments anyway.

    Ha! In your dreams. Have you not noticed that a lot of INTJs tend to be closet mystics? Ni-Fi, loves the unseen as well as the ancient mysteries. But I agree the group think, social conformity ones would die out. Only to be replaced by Golden Dawn style ones. There would be a bunch of self appointed Gandalf's roaming the earth.

    The implication of the quote is that the cold, unfeeling machines, represented by the Architect, are more honorable and reliable than the humans. Why would a machine engage in deception?

    It's a useful counter when someone criticizes an NT for being unfeeling. Sometimes, that's a good thing. Sort of a riposte to the McCoys of the world. Could the machines have been reasoned with if they weren't so cold and unfeeling? More passionate beings might have been more stubborn, defensive.

    Mostly I'm just countering the not wholly inaccurate criticisms. In particular, someone referenced the Matrix, (brains in vats... what's the downside?) and that particular bit with the Architect came to mind.
