    Ok, that's why I was asking.

    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.

    This must be true, to some extent, for NFs as well?

    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.

    SJs probably got that 99% covered pretty well. SJs, the perspirators.

    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.
    Hmmm.

    I really think that statement is bunk, if you (not you, Habba! Just general you) have no talent for something then it's better to stick to something else rather than waste time...

    If intelligence is being knowledgeable than SJs are bounds to be the most intelligent since they know how to store their data.


    To me intelligence is something that is mostly irrespective of personal experience. It's one's inherent ability to think and ask the right questions.

    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.

    I don't see why it's a dichotomy between

    a) wanting to learn everything for the sake of accumulating knowledge

    and

    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?
