    INTPs are like an inert gas, like radon. They're mostly boring and they might smell a little funny. But after you've been around them long enough, you'll die of cancer.
    "We grow up thinking that beliefs are something to be proud of, but they're really nothing but opinions one refuses to reconsider. Beliefs are easy. The stronger your beliefs are, the less open you are to growth and wisdom, because "strength of belief" is only the intensity with which you resist questioning yourself. As soon as you are proud of a belief, as soon as you think it adds something to who you are, then you've made it a part of your ego."

    How big is this room? Is there furniture? Are there restrooms? Refreshments? An itinerary? Windows? A candlestick?
    The butler did it...

    As for the room of 20 ESFPs... How much air is left in the room? How fast is the room filling with water? How fast is the ship sinking? How fast can we make it sink?

    ...

    Sry. Projecting.

    Hee.

    Um. If you put thirty INTPs in a room together they could FINALLY use one of their infamous blanket statements of black and white certainty.

    They could say (in unison), "EVERBODY'S in the same room together!"

    Then one of them would say, "Yeah but, I've got one arm out the window so it doesn't count. . ."

    And then they could start having fun.

    At least one would argue that this could all be an illusion.

    Is T more conducive to survival than F (all else equal)? How then to explain why Ts are a minority in the general population?

    I don't think T is more conducive to survival. And from what I've seen, INTPs are the most likely to be suicidal. That is, of course, anecdotal.

    Survival of the individual, or of the species?
