I said "it appears…" I am not speaking to motives. There certainly are a vast majority of people, at least in the culture I'm from, who think that external pressure produces the best results. I'm not even saying it is wrong. I think that very aggressive, external personalities blossom in external pressure, but internal, private, sensitive personalities are less likely to do this. Do you think Te-doms are the exception and value the gentlest and most non-controlling approaches available? Are they the ones that think it is more important to be noncompetitive, to let each person develop even at a slow pace and in ways that do not appear to produce any success? Do they value a non-structured approach of individualistic exploration that will never win an award and rarely earn an "A"?
What types of personalities do you think value controversy, competition, and pressure?
