I was just wondering if he was trying to say that an SJ couldn't love learning things and taking in knowledge just because that person might be selective about what it is.

"I had a bag of Fritos, they were Texas grilled Fritos. These Fritos had grill marks on them. They remind me of summer, when we used to fire up the barbeque and throw down some Fritos. I can still see my dad with the apron on. Better flip that Frito, dad, you know how I like it." -Mitch Hedberg
Isn't there some theory about multiple intelligences?
Anyway, I am the kind of smart that smart traditionally means. I'm good at school, retain knowledge easily, and catch on quickly.
But I also have a lot of common sense--of which I cannot stress enough the importance.
You make a good point there. Thank you.
Common sense i also believe is very important .. You don't learn that necessarily in books.
I find it interesting in how people can, to an extent pigeonhole intelligence and what it is meant to be smart. There are so many factors that needs to be taken into account.
It is not black and white.
“I made you take time to look at what I saw and when you took time to really notice my flower, you hung all your associations with flowers on my flower and you write about my flower as if I think and see what you think and see—and I don't.”

All types have the capacity for intelligence. No one is an exclusive information sponge. While some types may continue to take in information on a subject and splice/dice it 50 different ways and from different angles, there's nothing wrong with being satisfied with the facts.
a) wanting to learn everything for the sake of accumulating knowledge
b) learning things that are practical/relevant in day to day life
What about people who like to learn about subjects that interest them, and pay little attention to subjects they don't find interesting? Does that fall under the umbrella of practicality or knowledge-seeking?
