    True as well.

    We both kinda operate under innocent until proven guilty philosophies, just that for him it's innocent of being incompetent until proven otherwise...
    I love that last part of the quote.

    Yeah, all types do it. But we can't just call it a wash and say they all do it at the same rate.

    I'm not necessarily saying it's a bad thing. Without SJs giving unfettered support to all the good causes throughout history, we wouldn't be were we are.
    It's only bad when they choose the wrong authority to obey.

    I'm not saying just wash it away. We really don't have any proof of your statement is all. Most of the SJ's I know, do resolve things within their own head. More common is that SJ's select a system that the believe is true and then follow the reasoning within that system. It does resolve a "mess" persay within their own heads, but I don't see SJ's as doing it more as any other type. Well, more as in a higher percentage.

    I would agree that it's bad when SJs choose the wrong authority to obey. The definition of "good" and "bad" though varies from person to person. The same can be said though for any type.

    The proof would be in the MBTI test itself, with questions like:

    Do you often contemplate about the complexity of life?
    Would you rather experiment or follow familiar approaches?

    That's not proof. Those are tell tale signs that we believe or think can determine type. Where as they are only part of the picture. I don't see though, how that is proof for your statement about SJs more so than any other type "outsourcing" their beliefs to an outside authority. That was what you and I were discussing was it not?

    "Outsourcing their beliefs" makes it sound very negative, I could have used more neutral phrasing. But people that don't like to experiment and make up their own rules rather than follow them, and people who don't contemplate all these vague ideas in the first place, are more likely to accept and defer to a higher authority, or a "familiar approach".

    Alrighty, I'll call it a truce then

    All in all, yes I would say that yes, in some ways they do.

    I still slightly disagree, but not enough that it makes any difference at this point. Heck, I'm not even sure if I could explain how exactly I disagree. lol.

    That's good enough for me. I know I'm not a higher authority or anything, so I can't expect you to agree.

Maybe I should state (No, I definitely should state) that I am narrowing it it down to those who typically just lead vs. manage, dictate, or instruct. If that makes any sense. We are on the same page. I'm just drawing slightly different lines.

    I've studied leadership for years and I've defined what I think a Leader is vs. what a leader is. I place the difference in capitalization to try and distinguish a difference. If that makes any sense. I do hope I'm not confusing you.
    Considering the fact that the OP did not define leadership or what a leader is nor did the OP define authority, you have just admitted to influencing the conversation toward your personal definition of what a leader or, as you put it, Leader is. There by this logic you have just appointed yourself leader of this thread.

    Now according to my big ass dictionary that weights like ten pounds, here are some definitions:

    Authority: 1. the power to determine, ajudicate, or otherwise settle issues or disputes; jurisdiction; the right to control, comand, or determine. 2. a power or right delegated or given; authorisation.

    Lead: to go before or with to show the way; conduct or escort. 2. to conduct a holding or guiding. 3. to influence or induce; cause.

    Leader: a person or thing that leads.

    Leadership: 1. the position or function of a leader. 2. ability to lead. 3. an act or instance of leading; guidance; direction.

    Now my intentions with my earlier posts in this thread was to expand on this idea of authority in connection with leadership, as the two commonly go together. And I had some questions, that I'll repeat, "What I meant to ask the SJs is what variables does one personally consider when evaulating the integrity of a leader? Also how important is the integrity of a leader to you versus their status? When do you start questioning authority? When do you consider a person to have too much power?"

    But apparently I am not allowed to expand on the idea. As the 'local SJ authority' has asserted themselves against me. But this will prove to be a detriment to the SJ community as this thread will soon reach stagnation since the OP has been already been adequately answered by TakeFive's post. As a result the thread will die. There will be one less topic for the SJs to discuss which will cause a domino effect in the rest of the forum. Consequently, Eagle will cause the end of MBTIc!!

    Now tell me my logic is flawed. Tell me I'm confused or incompetent. Go gather your other SJ friends (or are they your minions?), sick them on me! Back me into a corner and make me submit to your will. You'll be sorry!


    (By the way this post is totally a joke. I'm laughing and you should too. )
    Is not to be held accuntable for peeling errors.

    I wasn't laughing till the end.

    SJ Minions. LOL. I'm an introvert. I have no friends.

    When you whipped out your dictionary I almost fell in love. :P
