    If we loose the SJs as our slaves for the mundane jobs then we'll have to do it ! So never tell them that their jobs are boring rather speak of the "huge meaning their jobs have for society" or "their great chances to climb the career ladder".

    Never ever tell them truth !!!! Big mistake

    What makes you think we dont know the truth?

    Part of the sadness about this subject is that I am aware of the insignificance and unimportant nature of my job on the grand scale of the world. Yet I am still satisfied to be doing something of use to other people around me.

    We cannot all be remarkable. I will most likely live and die doing the mundane things of the world. Why? Natural preference? Fortune? Just the way it is? Self imposed choice?

    Possibly all those. But the mantra that is most entertaining in this sad truth is: "Someone has to do it." Responsibility is the main draw. Not because I necessarily enjoy it, but because im aware of what would happen if people like me didnt take it. It has little to do with mindless adherence, although it could easily have something to do with inferior Ne anxieties, but they are not all wrong.

    That to me is the bigger picture in the structures we have created for ourselves. And in which we have trapped ourselves. Not that would shouldn't aim for something improved and better but upon examination of ones self...do I have the creative or inventive intelligence? Do I have the ideas? Do I have the hope and drive?

    If I lack in these areas, the key areas of inspiration that is second nature to many intuitives and is the main catalyst in the improvement of our systems of reality; How else then... can I help the world? Or at least those around me? By doing something others cannot, or will not, do. Is it naive? Yes. Is it stupid? Possibly. Will I stop doing such tasks because of this revelation? No.

    Because remember....someone has to do it.

There is no longer anything to point to beyond, nothing Other, so it points pointlessly to itself.' - Iain McGilChrist

    Generally people assume that the SJs are exactly those mindless drones you have around you all day which follow the logic 'someone has to do it'. The thing tho is that in the meantime the whole society has shifted a lot into the direction of the true human nature, which goes more along the line 'why should I do it, someone else will do it'. I actually think that the people who say 'I'll do it cause someone has to' have become quite small in numbers and this world is more reigned by big-headers and egoists.

    One of the dreams you have to say ade to by age 30, if you arent a rocket scientist by then, is being a rocket scientist. the truth is how much jobs really in the end turn out to be that what you dreamt of at age 3. Even as a firefighter you prolly have to do more paperwork nowadays than rescuing naked woman from burning houses. So running around, judging jobs as stupid and not good enough for oneself, I think is not the right attitude.

    the only thing I gravely hate are people who dont reinvent their jobs even a slight bit. There are some jobs you really cant reinvent much but at least you can do them with a smile. And the worst thing I think there is, is a totally depressed guy working strict routine and never deriving from that.

    So I think, even if the job is boring, the only real thing that matters is what you make from it and how much fun, meaning or whatever you can bring to it yourself. if that is there, I'ld always admire people who say 'I'll do it cause someone has to' more than people who say 'I am too good for that job'.
