    Default Don't you already know?

    Type me please. I am an introverted person who is creative and realistic. I am mostly self confident. I have very deep emotions but make decisions based on reason. I make decisions upfront but can sometimes be indecisive. I am mostly in touch with reality but can be dreamy. I am not very well acquainted with my surroundings and often forget where I left something and run in to things. People don't often realize it, but I'm a sensitive person.

    this reads like a bad horoscope. could apply to anyone. take a questionnaire.
    You hem me in -- behind and before;
    you have laid your hand upon me.
    Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,
    too lofty for me to attain.

    Why is this thread titled "Don't you already know?"?

    Interestingly, I didn't notice this. I have a good grasp of what is occurring but I am often oblivious to the reality of a situation.

    Haha, I thought he was describing an INFJ, but maybe that's because of the horoscopey nature so I saw myself in it.

    (things like "dreamy", out of touch with surroundings, sensitive)

    The OP used pair of opposites. Just saying. That's how horoscopes are written and how people believe in them. Barnum effect.
    I don't think that it's so personal
    Anymore
    I don't think that it's irreversible
    Anymore
    Sometimes I feel like I'm a sentimental trooper.

    Maybe OP is making a point about typology theories?
    'One of (Lucas) Cranach's masterpieces, discussed by (Joseph) Koerner, is in it's self-referentiality the perfect expression of left-hemisphere emptiness and a precursor of post-modernism. There is no longer anything to point to beyond, nothing Other, so it points pointlessly to itself.' - Iain McGilChrist

    Yes, I know - as you can see I used one myself just above. :P

    As in "don't you already know it's just bullshit?"?

    He's incorrect on that. It's already well-known in typology that we have cognition from all dichotomies/functions, but there is nonetheless a hierarchy of considerations.

    "Don't you already know?"

    Maybe he's talking about our perceptions of the types. He's laid out a very stereotypical picture of a type and is asking, don't we already know what type this is? In our minds, we've associated these tropes with each type. Possibly even to the unconscious level.

    I don't think I'm explaining this well, but that's how I read into this.
    Yet I know, if I stepped aside
    Released the controls, you would open my eyes
    That somehow, all of this mess
    Is just my attempt to know the worth of my life
