    If someone honestly is interested in knowing something I know well, I'm more than happy to tell them all about it, in as much detail as they can handle.

    A friend of mine once put it to me this way: "When you are made aware of a problem, it is much easier to solve the problem than when you aren't aware or fail to acknowledge that there even is a problem."

    I think that might be what the intent is for NTs.

    That sharing knowledge assists in others becoming more aware of themselves. Or perhaps that sharing knowledge gives others more tools to solve problems.

    What do you all think?

    As an NT is it that you want to be seen as smart so you don't dish in fear of looking dumb?

    Or if you are confident do you hold back in order to remain more knowledgeable than the rest?

    Or is it that by sharing knowledge you don't have time for your own intelectual persuits?

    Or simply that you don't care to share?
    Never stingy with sharing insight etc. in fact to the contrary.. when sharing insight makes a difference it is immensely rewarding... adds to the human 'feeling'. Ego.. meh.. don't see any point in deriving anything from withholding knowledge etc

    Give/share info/insight whenever compelled to by reasons based in principles. Learn/teach whenever I can (there are no bad students only bad teachers!). Feeling inadequate in terms of knowledge has only one negative side to it which surfaces when I fail to find ppl I can refer to... the web has been a great help.

    'Discovered' my stash of plans and notes related to designs & models but they weren't not shared.
    The answer must be in the attempt

    I think that's what a lot of NTs feel like they have to offer. We're not going to bake you a casserole or write you a fuzzy letter. But if we know how to do something or know a lot about a subject, we like to share that knowledge as a way of connecting and helping others. It does feel like a form of service.

    What a being does necessarily reveals what that being is. Rational souls make themselves known by expressing concepts, judgements, and arguments. If one were to display knowledge, then it would necessarily reveal something about his soul, but a display of ignorace is also revelatory.

    How do you know that I know anything?
    Man, not one thing in that entire post made sense to me. Can I find "the glory of god" in newborn twins conjoined at the skull?...is it the gleam in their eyes? Ignorant people are dangerous...and I'm not obligated spirtually to supply matches. If God wanted them to be intelligent...should have given them smarter parents. Doesnt "he" control the universe.....how hard can it be?
