    I suppose it naturally follows that most of the current Australian's predecessors were criminals...

    Whoa, well where the eff are they? I mean if there was a considerable amount wouldn't we be better represented in an environment like this... or are we?

    Where's me Aussie INTJs at?

    *Ignores taunt* I don't see how 'INTJ' or 'convict' is genetic :rolli:

    I suspect there's a lot more of us than we realize, it's just that we're well spread out. I have a feeling that ESxx types wouldn't mind spending a lot of time with people who function similarily, whereas if you stuck a bunch of INTx people in the same room we'd get bored of the redundancy. However, I doubt that natural selection is sophisticated enough to spread us out like that, so I'm just going to fall back on the whole 'God hates us' argument and be done with it.

    Hum. The OP seems to think that a lot of things are genetic, so it was more a taunt at him than at anyone else...

    And God doesn't hate us... God just has skewed priorities.

    Ya, I'm not too sure about the concept of setting up an INT breeding program to spawn little INTlets

    This is a slight derail, but I recently read a Newsweek article about men who regularly sold their semen in the early days of artificial insemination. Some of these guys have dozens of children they don't know and can't find. In terms of evolutionary biology, this is better than winning the lottery... twice. If genetic dissemination were like target shooting, then selling sperm would be akin to using a shotgun.

    edit: oh, and I bet these guys were NTs. Just a guess.

    On heredity.

    Neither of my parents were INTJ or INTP. Do most of you have at least one parent of your type?

    I wonder if the unconscious/evolutionary drive of INTs is to create and propagate more of them?

    -Endymion, my dear. A beautiful youth possessed by the moon.
    -Well, forget about him and get to bed.
    -Yes, my dear.

    Not me, the closest in my family is an ENFJ brother, parents are both sensors.
